After taking the county by storm in Kimi Dora, giving international honors in Ang Babae sa Septic Tank, making a milestone in I Do Bidoo Bidoo and going back to theater in Bona, no one can stop Eugene Domingo in doing a lot of exciting new things and conquering new heights for her career.
For someone so busy, Eugene Domingo does not show any signs of slowing down anytime soon. If her accomplishments and projects for 2012 alone will be used as gauge, then it looks like she has more to offer to the entertainment industry. No one knows exactly where she gets her energy and how she manages to be always full of life, but she is loved for it. This kind of vibrant personality is what made Solane (formerly Shellane) pick the now internationally renowned comedienne as its brand ambassador.
Onscreen, Eugene Domingo projects herself to be someone who is always brimming with energy. Her love for her craft shows in the way she portrays her characters: bubbly, expressive, and passionate in whatever they do. She has kept movie goers watching, and critics here and abroad recognizing her talent as a consummate entertainer.
This year, she has won the People’s Choice Award for Best Actress in the 6th Asian Film Awards, considered as the Oscars of Asia. Her movie Kimmy Dora and the Temple of Kiyeme became the 2nd highest grossing movie of the year when it earned more than P100 million pesos within two weeks of its premier. Her movie musical I Do Bidoo Bidoo featuring the songs of the APO Hiking Society proved to be another box-office hit. She was also well received in the stage adaptation of the movie Bona, which was a landmark film in the 70s for superstar Nora Aunor.
So how does she manage to keep such a tight schedule? “Hindi ko pinagsasabay-sabay ang shoot or rehearsal dates. Kailangan talaga months before naka-schedule na. Mabilis ako magdesisyon para tuloy-tuloy lang,” Eugene shares. “Aside from planning, I want constant and open communication. I’m open to changes, di ako nara-rattle. And if I’m free for the day, I just stay in the house and do what I love doing – play with the dog, eat, read books…”.
Life at home
At home, Eugene’s zest for life helps keep her spirits high in the same way that she is passionate at work. She admits that cleaning and fixing her cabinets is one of her hobbies, which is a chore to most people. Her dining room table seems to be her favourite spot in the house since it is where she surfs the internet, checks her Facebook account, writes, and dines.
Eugene is just as meticulous in the kitchen, going for products that are reliable and have proven to have good quality. “Birthday gift ko sa sarili ko is yung cookware na di na kailangan lagyan ng water or oil. It’s from Italy and ang bigat-bigat niya but you are so sure that it’s going to last a lifetime. It’s really an investment,” she describes.
When Solane approached her to be its brand ambassador, Eugene’s decision was easy and fast. “Well number one, bata pa lang ako alam ko na yan eh. Lumaki ako na Shellane ang gamit namin, so I know I can rely on its quality even after they changed their name to Solane,” she explains. This affirms her premium on safety especially since she lives in a condo. Solane’s free signature 7-point Safety Check, performed by the Hatid-Bahay riders right in front of the customers, assures her that LPG-related accidents will not happen.
“Actually that’s the most important na hindi dapat kalimutan. You should not only care for yourself and your family but also your neighbors. Anytime, pwede ka magkaroon ng aksidente if you are not safe so don’t take that risk,” cautions Eugene.
Whether at work or at home, Eugene really stays true to her energetic self, ready to share her appreciation for life with anyone she encounters. A characteristic she shares with the brand she believes in – a legacy that gives life and energy to Filipino households and establishments nationwide.
