Motherâ€™s non-show biz address
What makes Mother Lily run? Every day, Regal Films producer Lily Monteverde takes a walk or jogs around a park adjacent to her home in Greenhills, San Juan.
â€œFor at least three hours, day or night,â€ she says and offers, as proof, the calluses on her feet. â€œBut I have to keep walking,â€ she adds, â€œbecause of an old injury from dancing the tinikling in Dakak resort.â€
Not even rain stops her from walkingâ€”sheâ€™d go round and round her vast living room â€œat least 200 times.â€ Which is quite a feat, because itâ€™s as big as a five-star hotelâ€™s ballroom (and also boasts of a baby grand and several crystal chandeliers).
She says the house fits her personality to a T: Itâ€™s always ready for parties and entertaining. During gatherings, the producer almost always gives in to guestsâ€™ requests for her to play the piano. Actually, she has two baby grands; a third one, an upright piano, is a gift from Senator Ramon â€œBongâ€ Revilla Jr.
