Actress Cherie Gil visited her parents, show biz luminaries Rosemarie Gil and Eddie Mesa, who are now based in California. The star of “Sonata” told Inquirer: “My parents are great—looking and feeling healthier than ever, thanks to their discipline. They drink alkaline water.” She related that she stayed with her folks for just three days. “Then I was off to San Francisco for my sister’s birthday. But my parents later joined me there, too.

Always good to see my family happy and well.” Bayani San Diego Jr.
