Manila, Philippines – Dimples Romana has been the buzz online lately because of her character Daniela Mondragon in the hit afternoon drama series Kadenang Ginto. It’s not just because the story is getting heated up with the rivalry between her and Romina (played by Beauty Gonzalez), but because of an internet meme that has spread like wildfire in social media.

The meme originated from a scene in their latest teaser for the coming season, where Daniela was shown walking the street wearing a red dress and pulling a matching luggage. Netizens edited her into different locations, which started the “Daniela Mondragon Walks Everywhere” meme.
