She recently made rounds on different social media platforms because of her new hairstyle. She indeed looks like a Hollywood actress with her short and colored hair. Though she was not very active in the show business industry today, she can still be seen online as she is also a vlogger together with her husband. Aside from that, she is busy taking care of her new business venture, “Maricar’s Chocolate Cakes”.
Maricar had started it online in 2015 where her customers are her close friends, co-workers, and relatives only. Some of her sold-out products are the Classic Chocolate Cakes which are usually ordered to her during birthdays or anniversaries. They also have the ‘choco chunks’ variant and the ‘coffee chunks’ which is also very delectable and affordable. She was indeed very blessed to have so many people around her supporting her on her journey.
