A centenarian in Angono, Rizal was recognized and honored by the local government on her 100th birthday.

A centenarian is a person who has reached the age of 100 years or more. Reaching the age of 100 is relatively uncommon, although the number of centenarians has been increasing in many parts of the world due to advances in healthcare, nutrition, and overall living conditions.

Centenarians are often recognized and honored by communities and governments, and in some places, special incentives or honors are given to those who achieve this milestone.


Recently, the Facebook page “Municipality of Angono, Rizal” shared photos of a centenarian named Gregoria Reyes who was recently honored by the local government and celebrated her remarkable milestone of turning 100 years old.
