SURPRISE ❤️See that sunbeam coming through the back, that’s my Father God saying, “Good morning my child. Remember how I will always have your back!” 🎉🥰 Today is a very special day. After months of construction of our very first commercial property, na-bless na! Last year, binibiro ko si Lord, Sabi ko , “Lord, building na lang po ang Wala kami ☺️” Naalala ko ang Diyos ang tunay na nakakaalam ng puso natin. You may be judged, talked about, pulled down but He is the only one who knows your true intentions and your heart. And he will bless you accordingly ❤️ I have learned many life lessons during the development process of this particular property of ours that I’d like to share with you. First, never underestimate the Lord’s power to bless you! Sit quietly and have your heart do the praying. No need for words. Sometimes, the most fervent of prayers are those made in silence. Let HIM hear your worries, give HIM your anxieties, surrender your dreams to HIM and watch the Lord do wonders for you! Next, never worry when you hit rock bottom, for it is true that the best thing about being at your lowest is that there’ll be no other way to go but UP so chin up, God’s got you! Don’t be afraid to feel weak and helpless for it is in those times that the lord’s love for us is made perfect, through our weaknesses. In my years as an actress, I have learned to find contentment in being able to work continuously, I didn’t mind mapa-isa man or maraming eksena ko sa trabaho, bida o kontrabida, big or small role, okay lahat sakin, I valued my work the same way I valued my family. I gave it the same nurturing, the same love and the same respect. Ngayong araw ang patunay na ang mga pangarap ay naabot basta masipag ka, marangal, mabuti sa kapwa at Maraming DASAL 💋 Kapamilya, our 3 storey building in Paranaque is now up for LEASE or SALE ❤️ To God be all the glory!!! P.s. para kay #OhDani Daniela, don’t worry, brace yourself for the struggles and trials you’re about to face, for a true queen’s grit is not measured by the way she handles success but how she manages her failures. 💋 in this life our mistakes will humble us, and we’ll always come out a better version of ourselves 💋
The three-story building in Parañaque City, which they purchased last year, is Romana’s 10th property with her husband Boyet Ahmee.
In a second Instagram post today, she said that their other properties include two condominiums units, four homes, one of which was for Romana’s mother; a beachfront property in El Nido, Palawan; a farm and vacation home in Alfonso, Cavite and a mango and avocado farm in Calaca, Batangas. The couple started investing in properties 16 years ago when they were still newly-married.
Romana has always been open about investing in properties. She has been sharing updates about the commercial building since July via her Instagram posts.

Almost there 🏢 The building we purchased last year is almost finished with the renovations and we’re still deciding whether we’ll have it for lease , if we’ll use it or we’ll sell it. Leaving this photo here for those of you who may be thinking that your dreams are far from your reach. My hubby and I started from very little. Unti unti lang at Maraming Maraming dasal. Sinulat ko sa isang chapter in my book #DimpsTips under @abscbnbooks , one must always TAKE LEAPS OF FAITH. Do not be afraid. Taking calculated risks will always pay off in the end 💋 wag kang matakot. The Lord will always provide 💋
The actress said she shares her achievements with humility because her victories came together in times of self-doubt, struggle and sacrifice.
Romana stressed that she does not speak about her investments to brag—instead she hopes it serves as an inspiration for her fans and followers to reach for their dreams and goals as well.
“So to all the families out there who are dreaming of more for your families, just keep going,” she advised. “Tuloy lang Ang Laban, Kahit na mahirap, Kahit na parang imposible, Kahit na pagive Up na kayo.”
(The fight goes on, even if it is hard, even if it seems impossible, even if you are close to giving up.)
Romana currently stars in the popular drama TV series “Kadenang Ginto” as one of its main characters, Daniela “Dani” Mondragon-Bartolome. She has top billing in the production alongside Beauty Gonzalez. NVG
