She also said that one should not make it a habit to use the word “matanda” to describe a person.
“Huwag natin gawing ugali at gamitin ang salitang “matanda” to hurt, insult or decribe a person negatively,” she added.
Sunshine said that she’s proud of her age and that she’s happy and healthy at 44.
She also said the important thing is one is aging gracefully.
“I am proud of my age. At 44, I am healthy and happy. Ang mahalaga ay meron tayong pinagkatandaan. At higit sa lahat wala po tayong tinatapakan at sinasaktan just because nadadagdagan ang ating edad,” the actress said.
She then wished good health to everyone.
“Stay safe and healthy everyone. Magandang Hapon po,” Sunshine added.
