Actress Dimples Romana and her husband Boyet Ahmee surprised their housekeeper Yaya Vilma with her own house and lot. Yaya Vilma which they fondly called “Ate V” has been with the couple for 17 years. Dimples narrated that when they were starting, there are time when they cannot even pay her salary – or delayed, but Ate V still stayed with them.
Dimples and Boyet pretended that they were going to buy a house only if Ate V approves of it. So they toured Ate V around the house asking her opinion about the said place. Ate V said the house look good and even said that it seemed like the house was built for her.
When they reached one room, a standee of Ate V was waiting for her and balloons that read: “Oo para sayo ito.” That was the only time Ate V realized that the house she was evaluating is actually her house bought by Dimple and Boyet for her, for her love and loyalty to the family.
“Hindi namin maabot ang mga pangarap namin, kung walang ‘Ate V’ kaming kaagapay sa araw araw na pamumuhay. Masaya ako na kahit papano, naibalik na namin sakanya ‘yung lahat ng pagmamahal na ibinigay niya sa amin all these years.” said Dimples.
On her Instagram account, Dimples posted the video with the following caption:
“Para kay Ate V 💚 Paano nga ba tayo lubos na makakapagpasalamat sa mga taong tinuring na nating pamilya? Mga taong hindi tayo iniwan meron man tayo o wala. Mga taong inaalagaan tayo sa araw araw at ang ating pamilya ng buong puso at malasakit. Sa Gabay at awa ng Diyos, sa daming dasal, dumating na ang panahon na pinapangarap ko lang na dumating.
Maibabalik na namin sayo ate V ang Maraming taon ng serbisyo mo sa amin na para bang mga kapatid mo na kami. Mahal na mahal ka namin. Sana nagustuhan mo 💙 Ilang taon ko na din iniipunan ito para sa iyo. Dumating na ang araw na narinig ng Diyos ang dasal kong balang araw, maibalik namin sayo ang lahat ng pasasalamat at pagmamahal.”
