Do you remember the former child star, Shanadine “Dindin” Llarena? Do you remember the cute face of that little girl who once joined the “Eat Bulaga!” segment, “Little Miss Philippines?” If not, let us refresh your memory!
“Little Miss Philippines” has been a starting point of little girls with big dreams of becoming a beauty queen some day. Among those who dreamed of becoming a queen someday was Dindin Llarena herself.
She joined the pageant in the 90’s and has captured our hearts ever since she stepped on the stage. During the final round of the pageant, she represented the National Capital Region. As a little girl, she has already accomplished so much.
Her “Little Miss Philippines” stint opened more doors of opportunities for her. As a kid who possesses an impeccable singing prowess, the young Dindin was able to perform with the highly-acclaimed international singer, David Pomeranz. Dindin also had several acting stints in movies such as “Sanib,” “Magnifico,” and “Singsing ni Lola.”
At the peak of her career, she left the limelight and chose to have a quiet life. It was not an easy decision, but it surely is worth it. She finished a Business Administration degree and now works at PTT Philippines Foundation Inc. as a Corporate Services Responsibility Associate.
In 2014, she came back to “Little Miss Philippines” as a judge. She was also invited as a guest in “The Ryzza Mae Show” and Kapuso network’s now-defunct Sunday variety show, “SOP.”
