Grocery shopping is one of the duties that Marian Rivera enjoys as the wife of Dingdong Dantes and mother of Zia and Ziggy.
The Kapuso Prime-Time queen cooks for the family, and plans the food of her eldest daughter.
“Bilang nanay at ako ang pumipili ng lahat ng kakaining pagkain at baon ni Zia sa school, hindi puwedeng bihira, alam mo yun?
“Mahirap, e! Siguro, pag may time ako, once a week, hindi puwedeng hindi,” she says.
How about Ziggy's baby food?
“Ako pa lang ang kanyang kailangan,” Marian says, as she is still breastfeeding her six-month-old son.
And just like most moms, she is conscious about staying within the budget.
At the launch of her recent endorsement, she continues, “Inililista ko talaga yung mga kailangan. Kasi, minsan, pag nasa grocery ka, nawawala ka. Kasi, ang dami mong nakikita. Marami kang nadadampot na hindi mo kailangan.
“So ako, I suggest talaga, na nagsusulat talaga ako ng mga kailangan ko.”
Does she dress simply when she goes to the grocery?
“Oo, oo naman! Nanay, tipikal, normal, at nandun ka sa grocery para mamili, hindi para umawra!”
It seems like the endorsements being given to her all focus on her being a mother, when in the past, she used to endorse beauty products. How does she feel about this?
“Sa January , puro pagpapaganda naman,” she laughs.
