It's been a ubiquitous image over the past week and according to "Kadenang Ginto" star Dimples Romana, more than just being funny, the "Daniela the Explorer" meme has a deeper meaning to it.

Romana, speaking with reporters at a press conference Friday for the third season of her hit afternoon drama, acknowledged that she has been busting her gut out laughing seeing the creativity of fans.

Her favorites are the ones that include her in pictures of random family gatherings, K-pop groups, and overseas Filipino workers, in addition to those that highlight the beauty of the country.

But as she explained, her "walk of shame" goes a little deeper than what fans who edit themselves in with her see.

"Filipinos have so much resilience, and iyon ang mensahe ng shot na iyon, ni Daniela na naglalakad," she said.

She added: "Wala siyang tricyle or taxi, naglalakad siya. "Iyon ang pinaka-symbol noon, na kahit na nahihirapan tayo sa ating buhay, fab pa rin tayo, gorgeous pa rin tayo. And that's what counts in life, iyong hindi ka papagapi sa buhay."

Also at the press conference, Romana said that knowing that they are making people happy with the memes has been their main motivation in putting on a better show.

They're promising more intensity to go with the many twists and turns -- "ang charm kasi ng 'Kadenang Ginto' is akala mo tapos na pero hindi pa pala," said Romana.

The third season also includes the addition of Richard Yap.
