LOTS of stars are going into online selling now that work in local showbiz is on hold since there are no shootings for new movies or tapings for new TV shows. This will surely help augment their income in this season of the pandemic. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention.
Two of the stars who are selling their own products online are sisters Glenda Garcia and her Ate, Melissa Mendez (she celebrated her birthday last Monday.) Glenda is selling her own One Sweet Bite brand of peanut butter, home baked cakes, chili garlic sauce and shrimp salad. Glenda sent us her peanut butter and it’s truly a great treat, perfect for nutritious peanut butter sandwiches.
But Glenda has such a big heart that she continues to make packed lunches for the health workers and medical frontliners in various government hospitals, with several friends helping her in shouldering the cost. “This is my way of giving back kasi talagang nagpapakasakit silang ibuwis ang sarili nilang buhay alang-alang sa mga maysakit nating mga kababayan,” she says.
Glenda is part of the cast of GMA-7’s new TV series, “First Yaya”, with Marian Rivera and Gabby Concepcion, but taping has been stalled because of the pandemic and they don’t know yet as to when it will resume.
As for Melissa, she makes her own brand of cheese pimiento called Sweet Delights by Melissa that is truly delightful. Melissa is in the cast of Regal Entertainment’s horror flick, “Mga Kaibigan ni Mama Susan”, directed by Chito Rono. She plays the aunt of lead actor Joshua Garcia. This is an entry to the December Metro Manila Filmfest and they would have to start its shooting soon to make it to the filmfest deadline.
