Susan Roces keeps home by sentiment and good sense

Susan Roces admits she is sentimental to a fault. She has transformed a house in Lipa, Batangas, into a storehouse for her “old things,” which includes “lots of gowns by Pitoy Moreno, some by Ramon Valera,” costumes, knickknacks and memorabilia she has gathered since the ’50s.

“They call me basurera because I keep everything,” said the 70-year-old actress who is famous for films from Sampaguita Pictures like “Mga Ligaw na Bulaklak,” “Prinsesang Gusgusin,” “Perlas ng Silangan.” She recently starred in the soap “Babaeng Hampaslupa” on TV5.

Her wedding gown, a beaded number by Pitoy Moreno, is still in good condition. Her daughter Grace tried it on for her wedding, but it was too small for her, since Roces was a svelte 110-pound bride then.

These now-vintage treasures are dry-cleaned and properly stored, but for her residential home, Roces takes care of her clothes by using Champion detergent-a brand she has been endorsing since 2007.
