Filipinos are naturally tight-knit and usually enjoy meals with family. They try to spend as much time as possible with their loved ones especially if it’s a rarity for their schedule to free up.
And now, during the community quarantine brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, many have been spending more time with their loved ones at home, catching up on lost time. Even celebrities who have very hectic schedules are now utilizing their time with their parents, significant others, and children while they can.
To actress Dimples Romana, her family is her top priority in this time of a pandemic. A loving wife to her husband Boyet and mom to teenage daughter Callie and young son Alonzo, Dimples has always made it a point to have a meal with her family despite her busy schedule.
Dimples loves food and loves to cook at home. She would even share her kitchen tips with her social media followers through the hashtag #DimpsKitchen—as she is a firm believer in the value of dining together as a family. (Read: 3 Easy Recipes for Special Occasions While in Quarantine)

What do you think is the importance of a family salu-salo?
Salu-salo gives way to the most amazing stories from every single member of the family. It becomes a great avenue where the family can create beautiful memories and always feel comfort and relief knowing you will never be alone and you can always go back to a place where you’re safe and loved.
Who taught you the value of cooking and sharing food with your loved ones?
Definitely my mama. She’s Kapampangan and loves cooking. Her language of love is service and, up to this day, would always teach us the value of cooking for family and eating meals together. (Read: The Touching Story Behind Chef Jessie’s Pork Barbeque Family Recipe)
