Prayers and hard work, said Dimples Romana, enabled her to purchase her "halfway home."

Dimples and husband Boyet Ahmee bought the property while the actress was doing the hit afternoon series Kadenang Ginto on ABS-CBN.

She said, "Napakalaki talaga ng utang na loob ko, of course, sa Dreamscape and my ABS-CBN family dahil itong property na ito ay nabili dahil kay Dani Girl!"

Fans of the show tagged her Dani Girl, referring to their favorite character Daniela Mondragon, the series' antagonist.

Dimples continued, "Dito [sa condo] napunta lahat ng pinagdaanan ko as Dani Girl. Lahat ng pagluha, pagtataray. Lahat ng pagsusungit. Lahat ng takbuhan, barilan. Lahat ng sampalan. Ayan, lahat ng tiniis kong sampalan, dito napunta sa property nito.

"Pag nakikita ko ito, sobrang nano-nostalgic ako at naaalala ko na, 'Uy, si Daniela Mondragon ang bumili nito.'"

The character became viral many times during the show's two-year run, with the memes reaching their height when Daniela, clad in red gown, stormed out into the street dragging a red suitcase.

The condo unit is still bare and in the same condition as the previous owner left it. Dimples sees it as her halfway home, envisioning it to be "super neutral," meaning no shiny, steel-type decors other than the kitchen equipment.

The actress wants its colors to be white, bone white, and cream white.

Dimples and Boyet purchased a loft-type condo unit, but that's not the best part of their new property.

Dimples said this was the feature that made her consider buying the place.

She shared, "Kuwento lang. When I saw this property, I wasn't really looking into buying. Parang, gusto ko lang ng inspirasyon. Mahilig lang kami ni Boyet na magtingin-tingin ng mga iba't-iba lugar, 'tapos sasabihin ko kay Lord, 'Lord, beke nemen (baka naman).'

"Iniisip ko palagi na baka there's always a good opportunity to buy another one and look into the future."

Dimples plans to put the living and dining area near the windows. She will position the sofa facing the window, so that the family can have a nice "muni-muni" spot in the condo.

SET "BIGGER GOALS" TO INVEST MONEY WISELY

Dimples is still in disbelief that she has managed to buy a property in Makati, but she is thankful. The mother of two said one shouldn't rush a blessing, "Kung meron kayo pangarap sa buhay, huwag niyo madaliin. Napaka-importante na naiintindihan natin na, 'Okay, ito pa lang budget ko, ito lang puwede ko bilhin.' And if that means kaya pa lang ninyo paunahan bilhin ay iyong mismong property, okay lang kahit hindi pa buong-buo iyong loob."

Then she reminded, "Important to acknowledge this, so hindi magka-utang."

The Kapamilya talent also gave an advice on investing one's money properly. She said, "I think it's very important... kapag meron tayo trinatrabaho, magkaroon tayo ng goal na ito ang particular things na gusto ko maabot o ma-achieve o mabili sa pera na gagamitin ko.

"Kasi, kadalasan, ang hirap pagka merong pumapasok na pera, 'tapos hindi mo alam kung saan dadalhin. Ang nangyayari, kadasalan, napupunta lang sa luho."

Although Dimples owned to her tendency to spend on small stuffs, she has vowed to focus more on bigger goals. For example, her Makati condo.

Dimples has promised another viewing of the condo after its renovation.
