Can you believe it's been 28 years since Rochelle Pangilinan first appeared on Eat Bulaga!?
As the star dancer of the now-defunct SexBomb Girls and, eventually, a Kapuso actress, Rochelle has had property investments, which include a home in Quezon City.
As the wife of Arthur Solinap, whose family owns hectares of land in Iloilo, she also tried venturing into planting sugarcane.
But before the morena beauty entered showbiz, she grew up in Dampalit, Malabon.
The heavy rains and floods brought by typhoon Inday these past few days made her reminisce about childhood.
On Instagram, she related, "May kuwento ako bilang maulan naman...
"Nung bata ako, kapag baha sa Dampalit, madaling araw pa lang gising na kami (kadalasan kasi, mataas ang baha minsan lagpas ulo).
"Alam namin kung gaano kabilis umaakyat ang tubig baha at kung kailangan na bang itaas ang mga gamit etc.
"Minsan nga, nagising ako kapantay na ng baha ang papag na tinutulugan ko."
The good side of it was that classes were suspended.
Rochelle continued, "Ganun pa man, bilang bata, masaya ako kapag baha, walang pasok, at makakapaglaro ako kasama ang mga kaibigan, makakapag-swimming kami (malinis pa ang tubig baha dati)."
They would also have instant food.
"At higit sa lahat, may ulam kami agad, kasi maraming isda diyan sa baha galing sa mga palaisdaan,kaya naglalabas na din kami ng lambat para makahuli ng pang-ulam..."
Her life then was simple, but, "Haaayst...ang sarap talagang maging bata."
Sadly, kids of today can no longer have that kind of fun.
Referring to the baha, she said, "Ngayon, green na."
