Before making their mark in showbiz, Shamaine and Nonie Buencamino were veteran actors in the theatre industry. They both started off as friends, and shared the same interest and love for the arts. “Marami kaming sine-share nun. Nag-aagree kami tungkol sa acting tungkol sa mga opinions namin,” Nonie said. But as time went by, they grew more fond of each other, and eventually fell in love.
According to the couple they couldn’t travel much then due to limed resources, although they were able to make up for it in the later years. Now, they both enjoy each other’s company by eating in restaurants and travelling around the Philippines and the world. Needless to say that they are now enjoying the fruits of their labor. Even if the two have established themselves in the entertainment industry, they keep it casual and cool by being goofy, and have pampering days wearing facemasks. But most importantly, they both are very spiritual individuals who never lose faith in the Lord.

Who wouldn’t love this couple? Notwithstanding their success, they are genuinely grounded and are a happy go luck family. “Nagpunta kami sa Sagada at sa Banaue sa Batad. Nandon kami at ang saya saya,” the The General’s Daughter star recalled fondly. Shamaine, who plays Alyana’s (Yassi Pressman) mother in FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano also shared her happy memories and said, “Pumunta ako sa ibang bansa with my students, tapos pagbalik ko I celebrated my birthday with my family. Ang saya kasi completo kami.”
