Mandaluyong City paid tribute to its newest centenarian — Cresencia Salazar, according to a report by Manila Bulletin.

The 100-year-old Salazar was surprised to see officials of the local government, led by Mandaluyong City Mayor Menchie Abalos, visit her and present to her a bag of goodies, a plaque, and a check.

“Binigyang pagkilala natin ang bagong centenarian ng ating lungsod na si Cresencia D. Salazar mula sa Barangay San Jose na ipinanganak noong June 26, 1921 (We gave due recognition to Cresencia Salazar, who lives in Barangay San Jose, as our newest centenarian in the city of Mandaluyong. She was born on June 26, 1921),” Abalos wrote in her Facebook post.


“Naghandog tayo kay Nanay Cresencia ng plaque at cheke na nagkakahalagang P100,000 (We gave her a plaque and a check for P100,000),” she added.

Ordinance No. 681, Series of 2017, mandates the local government units (LGUs) to provide a P50,000 cash incentive to its constituents aged 100 years old and above.

It was later amended in October of the same year after the national government required LGUs to give a plaque of recognition to its centenarians and increase the cash incentive to P100,000.
