(People's Daily Online)    10:45, December 17, 2018


Ten senior citizens ages 81 to 105 offered a fantastic fashion show in Gongzhuang, Boluo county of Guangdong Province, a village known for the longevity of its people, on December 13, reported.

Beautiful makeup, fancy dresses and dazzling runways aren’t just for young people these days. These grey-haired citizens can also take the audiences' breath away with their brilliant performances.

95-year old Yang Dongying, one of the performers, told the reporter that performing on the runway was beyond her imagination.

When asked about the secret to longevity, Yang said that she has been practicing a consistent morning routine. She is also a vegetarian as she believes in Buddhism.

Studies indicate that pure water, clean air and richly endowed natural sources in Boluo also contribute to local residents' longevity.

Statistics show that the average life expectancy in Boluo is 79 years, four years higher than that of China and eight years higher than that of the world.
