Jean Garcia is famous for the contravida roles she played.
In the 90s, she was Ms. Minchin in the movie version of Sarah...Ang Munting Prinsesa.
In 2000s, she was Madam Claudia in the original Pangako Sa 'Yo.
But to her daughter Jennica Uytingco, she is hardworking and sweet mom.
Just this week, the wife of Alwyn Uytingco got sick, and needed some TLC from Mommy Jean.
She wrote on Instagram, "I sent my Mama a text message this morning.
"I told her I'm sick and it would be nice if she can cook sinigang na salmon for me."
But the day was about to end, and there was not a single word from her mom.
Jennica continued, "It was 10 in the evening when her driver arrived. I was about to compose a long text message, 'tampo kunyari' because the sinigang didn't arrive."
It turned out, Jean—a good cook and owner of Jean's Manila Restaurant & Bar—sent more than what her daughter requested.
"My Mama surprised me with ALL my favorites!
"Sinigang na salmon, buttered crabs, shrimp and corn, bangus (look at that belly!!!) and snails in coconut milk!
"Mawawala talaga ang lagnat, ubo at sipon ko nito. I love you ma, thank you!"
