Believe it or not, Tweetie de Leon-Gonzalez is now 50 years old.
At the Organique Acai media luncheon held last March 17 at the Paparazzi restaurant in EDSA Shangri-La, Tweetie cemented her status as one of the industry’s ageless beauties.
What’s one of her anti-aging secrets?
For Tweetie, it's simply all about taking care of yourself.
The mother of four told the press, “That’s only way to balance stress, to balance life, to look good, and to prevent illnesses.
“That’s really the secret to being happy and beautiful.”
With age, health becomes synonymous to wealth in many different ways, especially as a committed family woman.
She adds, “At this age, my priority is to be well because as the kids get older, parang they need you more. More than they were babies.”
One of the ways that Tweetie invests in healthy living is opening herself up to new experiences.
Aside from playing squash, the former fashion model also tried her hand at tennis.
She confesses, “I’ve been a tennis fanatic. I know all the tennis players in the world.
“I look forward to training all the time. Nakaka-excite.
“Siguro this is the secret to staying fit and energetic.
"You challenge yourself. You get excited about something new because I wanna learn this, you do everything you can to be good at it.”
When it comes to food, Tweetie admitted that she has no diet restrictions.
She reveals, “I eat ice cream, I love ice cream. I eat pizza. I eat white rice!
“I eat, but I eat enough lang. I don’t overindulge.”
In order to keep her diet healthy, she makes her meals “colorful.”
“I always tell my kids, the more colorful your plate is the healthier it is because if you have greens, and orange, and yellow, and red in there, all that means is that you have a variety of vegetables which are really good for you,” she concludes.
