Snooky Serna is proud to say that her two daughters with Ricardo Cepeda are more focused on their careers rather than matters of the heart.
Both Samantha, 24, and Sachi, 21, do not have boyfriends.
“Hats off ako sa mga anak ko kasi they know how to live their life and have wonderful careers.
“Hindi man sila sumunod sa yapak namin ng dad nilang si Ricardo na naging mga artista, they are happy sa trabaho nila ngayon.
“Kung tutuusin, nasa tamang edad na sila to get into a relationship, di ba?
“Kapag tinatanong ko naman sila kung may boyfriends na ba sila, they would answer na wala pa.
“Nakikita ko naman how dedicated they are sa careers nila which is good for their future,” she told PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) recently during the press conference for the GMA-7 teleserye The One That Got Away.
MILLENNIALS VS. BABY BOOMERS. Snooky, who started out in showbiz at the age of four, noticed that today's millennials prioritize "magandang career."
She continued, "Focused sila na magpayaman.
“Madali na kasing mag-start ng sarili mong career online.
“They can create their own business kahit nasa bahay lang sila.
“I just can’t help to compare them sa generation namin."
Snooky was born in 1966, which is actually part of the generation X.
But the actress considered herself as part of the baby boomers.
“Kami kasing mga tinatawag nilang mga Baby Boomers, mas inuna pa namin yata ang love life!
“I have to be honest, madali kaming ma-in love noon.
“Madali kaming ma-flatter sa mga magandang pinapakita ng leading man namin noon.
“I guess, masyado lang mababaw ang generation namin.
“Madali kaming ma-sway sa mga little things na pinapakita ng manliligaw namin.
“Ngayon kasi, ang mga bata hindi na basta nadadala sa paligaw-ligaw.
“Kailangan magka-level kayo sa lahat ng bagay.
“It’s good for my daughters kasi hindi ako agad magiging lola!” she said with a hearty laugh.
HAPPY WITH LOVE LIFE. Meanwhile, the 51-year-old actress remains very much in love with her boyfriend of two years, former Bulacan Vice Governor Ramon Villarama.
“One thing that Ramon taught me is how to handle my finances.
“I admit na kalat ako when it comes to money.
“But with him around, natuto akong mag-ipon and to think twice or thrice bago ako gumastos sa isang bagay.
“Tinuruan din niya akong to invest my money wisely.
“Ngayon, may pinasok ako na business na pinagdarasal ko na maging successful,” she added.
She mentioned that she is an Iglesia Ni Cristo, while Ramon is Catholic.
But having different religions is not an issue to both of them.
“...what’s good about him, sumasama siya sa akin kapag may samba kami.
“Alam na rin niya ang mga gawain ng isang kasapi sa INC.
“Kung magpapa-convert siya, that is all up to him.
“Walang pilitan ito because religion na ang usapan, e.
“As long as he respects my beliefs, walang magiging problema.
“Napapansin ko naman na he’s getting interested na sa INC.
“Nagtatanung-tanong na siya about it.
“That is good kasi he’s discovering it by himself.
“I will support him in whatever he decides on.”
With their smooth-sailing relationship, the actress' friends feel that it's only a matter of time before they tie the knot.
