Lola Susano was the oldest of the 75 centenarians who received ₱100,000 each from the provincial government at the Negros Occidental’s 117th Cinco de Noviembre celebration last year.

Amazingly Lola Susano can still walk on her own and hears well enough to play the harmonica while her secret to a long life is by eating fresh vegetables from their farm which she cooks without preservatives.

Currently, the oldest living person recognized so far is the 116-year-old Italian named Emma Morano. – JCE.
