 Not long after this announcement, a lot of senior citizens were employed.  Media were also on the lookout for these working lolos and lolas but the recent photo by GMA News has caught netizens’ attention.   

Lola Florirose “Rose” Talastas probably could be the oldest crew of any fast food in the Philippines.  She is already 92 years old and yet she still has the working spirit. She is the newest service crew of Chowking at Legarda, Maynila.  She only works for 4 hours a day and only does light tasks.

In an interview with Super Radyo DZBB, she confessed she likes to remain active because if not she will get bored.

The fast food company thanked her through their FB page. “Isang malaking thank you to our strong, hardworking service crew members tulad ni Lola Rose!  We’re glad for the chance to give job opportunities to senior citizens like her in Manila. “

Readers were amazed.  

“Wow. Sa edad niya nagwowork pa riin. So proud of you, mother”

“Wow! You are amazing lola. May God give you a healthy life and strength and longer life. You are an inspiration to those who are young and strong yet they don’t like to work.”

“Wow, salute to Chowking.  Thank you. Hangga’t Kaya pa po ng isang idibiduwal na makapag trabaho, hayaan po sana ng mga company na mabigyan ng ganitong prebilihiyong trabaho ang mga mahal nating mga SC.

Hope younger individuals who doesn’t like to work will be inspired by her story. Kudos, Lola!
