Despite being one of the most in-demand celebrities in the country, Marian Rivera is actually an expert when it comes to optimizing her time with her family of four.

Now that schools are reopening, face-to-face, the Kapuso actress is all agog, "Gustung-gusto ko maging aligagang nanay."

She shared during the Shopee 9.9 Grand Media Event on August 25, 2022, "Face-to-face medyo naging, gusto ko siya.

"Gusto ko maging aligagang nanay, so na-e-enjoy ko na hinahatid ko yung mga anak ko sa school, kasi si Sixto din nag fe-face-to-face na rin siya, so si Zia din do'n.

"So buti na lang, si Zia is 7:30 and si Sixto 8:00, so pagka-drop ko kay Zia, si Sixto nanaman ido-drop ko."

Marian also talked about how her husband Dingdong Dantes's participation in getting their kids ready for school.

"Ako nanggigising, ako nagpapaligo, nagpe-prepare ng baon, and then naghahatid sa school.

"And then si Dong, pag wala siyang work, kaming dalawa yung naghahatid sa school."

And with physical events now coming back, Marian happily expressed how she felt about seeing everyone outside of Zoom meetings.

She said, "Ang saya ng ganito di ba na face-to-face, na hindi lang puro Zoom tayo, so at least kahit papaano nakakabalik na tayo na nagfe-face-to-face na tayo," she said.

"Although kailangan pa rin natin mag extra ingat pa rin at of course naka-test pa rin after nito."

ONLINE SHOPPING

Meanwhile, there's one habit that Marian does not need much adjusting to, it's her fondness for online shopping.

And although the restrictions on physical stores have eased, Marian said she was not about to give up the convenience of buying necessities online.

She seemed to have thought much about it, saying, "Naniniwala kasi ako na nangyayari ang lahat ng ito dahil may dahilan.

"Siguro marami din tayo na na-realize ng pandemic kung ano bang importante sa atin, ano ba ang mas dapat natin gawin.

"O saan ba tayo mas mapapadali ang buhay natin kapag napabili tayo. Kapag na-realize mo na, 'Ay! pwede ka palang hindi lumabas.

"Puwede mo lang pala siya bilhin online,' mas may time ka pa sa mga anak mo dahil hindi mo kailangan umalis ng bahay."

"So andaming realization talaga nitong pandemic na ito, but for sure itong realization na ito, mas makakabuting lahat para sa atin."

To address everyone's curiosity, Marian then named her 'greatest budol.'

She shared, "Alam mo kitchen talaga. Kasi siguro mahilig ako magluto.

"Sabi ko nga na-quote na ako, yung basahan na gusto ko, mukhang marami nang, mukhang na-sold out na sila."

And just like her mom, Zia Dantes also has been enjoying browsing the shops online.

Marian said, "Ayun na nga, so yung mga gusto niya mga coloring, mga pen, pang-painting, so lahat talaga nandun na.

"So alam mo yun, isang click mo lang, add to cart na. Marunong siya, 'Mom may I borrow your phone, I want to buy in Shopee.'"

Is Sixto set to join the family in endorsing the shopping platform?

Marian teased, "Malay mo mag dilang-anghel ka, sa next namin kasama ko na si Sixto."

Finally, 38-year-old actress invited everyone to tune in to the 9.9 Super Shopping Day TV Special at 9:35 p.m. on Shopee Live and GMA-7. The evening will feature exciting performances by Marian Rivera, Dingdong Dantes, Michael V, Carla Abellana, and other Kapuso stars.
