How Dingdong Dantes Helped Marian Rivera Check Off One Item On Her Bucket List

Soon, Marian Rivera will officially launch her new business venture, FLORA VIDA. Until then, Marian shared to press members during her Biofitea press conference how husband Dingdong Dantes helped her check off this one item on her bucket list.

Kuwento ng Kapuso actress sa isang press conference nitong Miyerkules, “Nag-usap kami ng asawa ko. Sabi niya, ‘Ano bang nasa bucketlist mo? Anong mga pangarap mo para sa sarili mo?’ Kaya sinabi ko sa kaniya, at hindi naman lingid sa kaalaman ng mga tao na mahilig ako sa bulaklak. So ang sabi ni Dong, bakit hindi ko tuparin ang isa sa mga nasa bucketlist ko? Sabi ko, ‘Oo nga, siguro it’s about time.’”

(My husband and I talked. He asked what’s on my bucket list, what are my dreams for myself so I told him. It’s not a secret how much I love flowers. Dong suggested that should fulfill that dream and I agreed that it’s about time.)

“Ang hilig ko kasi talaga sa bulaklak. Kinikilig ako kapag kinukuwento ko ‘yung gusto ko. Sobrang pasasalamat ko sa asawa ko kasi napaka-supportive niya. Suportado niya lalo na ‘yung mga gusto kong mangyari para sa sarili ko,” dagdag pa niya.

(I really like flowers. I’m enamored whenever I share what I love. I’m thankful to my husband because he’s very supportive especially the ones I want to happen for myself.)

Lingid sa kaalaman ng marami, naging opisyal lamang ang negosyong ito ni Marian noong Pasko, nang ibigay sa kaniyang ni Dingdong ang Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) certificate ng Flora Vida bilang Christmas gift.

Kuwento ng aktres, “Noong Christmas, binigyan niya ako ng DTI sa pangalan na ‘Flora Vida,’ pagmamay-ari ko na ‘yun.”\

“Ganoong ka-sweet ang asawa ko. Binibigay niya ang lahat… Kahit busy siya sa commitments niya, hindi niya nakakalimutan ‘yung mga bagay na makakapagpasaya sa akin. Tinupad niya talaga ang pangarap ko,” pagpapatuloy niya.

(Unbeknownst to everyone, Marian’s business became official last Christmas when Dingdong gave her the DTI certificate for Flora Vida as a Christmas gift. Shared by the actress, it was during Christmas when Dingdong gave it to me so I now own FLORA VIDA. That’s how sweet my husband is. Even though he’s too busy with his won commitments he never forgets how to make me happy and made me dreams come true.)

Hindi muna ibinahagi ni Marian kung kailan ang opisyal na launch ng Flora Vida dahil nais niya raw mapaghandaan ang natatanging serbisyong ibibigay niya sa kaniyang mga magiging customer.

Pagbabahagi niya, “’Yung gagawin kong arrangements, ako mismo ang gagawa. Walang ibang taong gagawa nito. Secret pa ang concept, pero ako lahat—ang magde-design, mamimili ng kulay, gagawa ng arrangement. Ako lahat.”(source)

Marian did not when Flora Vida will be launched because she wants to be fully prepared in the one-of-a-kind servise that she’ll provide. She will pick the design, colors, and arrangement herself. She’ll do all the work.

Now that’s what you call a supportive husband.
