Making it to 100 years old is no ordinary achievement, which is why Imus honors its centenarians.
But 100-year-old Aurora Sayoc-Abella is not just any centenarian, as she also has the distinction of being Imus’ oldest living former politiko.
Abella had served as councilor of Imus, Mayor Emmanuel Maliksi shared on Facebook.
Abellla was honored with a mass on her 100th birthday and received P100000 from the city.
Maliksi greeted her on behalf of the city and wished her good health and continued strength.
The likes of her are extraordinary!

Isang pagbati ng Maligayang Kaarawan mula sa Pamahalaang Lungsod ng Imus.
