Bound in her wheelchair and wearing a hot pink terno with a matching headdress, Victoria dela Fuente was met by warm applause and cheers as she was wheeled into the room filled with family and friends celebrating her 100th birthday.
Dela Fuente, who was born on Nov. 24, 1911, had a grand centenarian celebration in Toronto, Canada, where her children migrated.
According to the report by GMA News’ Connie Sison, Dela Fuentes’ secret to a long life is quite simple—a liking to fish and vegetables, and a sunny disposition.
A native of Bontoc, Mountain Province, this centenarian moved to Pangasinan when she got married. She has 10 children, 27 grandchildren, and 21 great-grandchildren.
