by Alpine L. Killa

LONG LIFE -- Centenarian Herbert Malecdan Todyog, who was born on March 10, 1918 and a resident of Barangay Alab Oriente, Bontoc, Mountain Province, recently received from the Department of Social Welfare and Development P100,000 cash incentive for reaching 100 years. Todyog, who could still walk and has clear eyesight, says living a simple life and eating organically grown crops such as camote, banana and legumes are his secret to longevity. -- Alpine Killa

BONTOC, Mountain Province – Another centenarian in this capital town was included in the list of centenarian awardees recognized by the Department of Social Welfare and Development.

Herbert Malecdan Todyog, born on March 10, 1918 and a resident of Barangay Alab Oriente, recently received P100,000 cash incentive from personnel of the DSWD.

The incentive was given as assistance and a way of recognizing Todyog for reaching the centenary age.

According to Social Welfare Officer III Araceli Shane Bayanos, Todyog is blessed with one biological child, four grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, and eight great-great grandchildren.

He also has an adopted daughter who is staying in Baguio City.

He lives alone in his house where his adopted daughter, grandchildren, and great grandchildren visit him, attend to his needs, and provide him basic necessities. He prefers to live separately from his grandchildren’s families despite their efforts to convince him to stay with any of them.

Bayanos said Todyog can still walk and has clear eyesight. His long life and the fact that he has never been hospitalized is attributed to the simple living in the village and eating organically-grown food like camote, banana, squash, and legumes, which they themselves grow.

Apart from the P100,000 that Todyog received from the DSWD, he received P30,000 cash incentive from the provincial government of Mountain Province in October last year.
