On Wednesday, January 15, Sunshine Cruz went on a trip down memory lane through an Instagram throwback pic taken when she was just 14 years old.

In an interview with PEP.ph, through Facebook chat, Sunshine said that the photos she shared on Instagram were sent by her mom.

The Kapamilya star said, "My mom just sent me my old photos kasi, kaya I shared some on social media."

Sunshine also shared some important developments in her life at the time.

Reminiscing, she said: "Nakakatuwa lang na balikan at alalahanin. Isa sa masasayang panahon ng buhay ko yan. Fourteen, very young, and dyan nagsimula ang maraming bagay for me.

"I was taught to be confident, to sing na maraming taong nanonood, and learned to dance and act.

"I also made lots of friends, and diyan nagsimula na nagkaroon ako ng sariling pera."

The photo was actually taken in 1991, a few days after Sunshine officially joined the now-defunct variety show That's Entertainment.

She recalled: "Sa isang studio sa baba ng Broadway Centrum.

"Lahat ng members ng That's Entertainment were obliged to have their photo taken sa studio na yun.

"I forgot the name of that studio pero it's in Broadway Centrum.


"I just started joining That's Entertainment. I was 14 years old there.

"Very awkward and shy haha. I [didn't] know how to smile pa nang hindi labas ang ngipin."

Sunshine is grateful to the late German Moreno for convincing her to join the show.

She said, "Kuya Germs convinced me to join That's Entertainment mga ilang araw bago yang photoshoot na yan.

"I attended my uncle's [Ricky Belmonte] birthday celebration when he saw me and asked me if I want to be a part of That's Entertainment. Then the rest was history."

Fellow celebrities-including Zsa Zsa Padilla, Vina Morales, Richard Juan, and Yam Concepcion-commented on the photo.

As she told PEP.ph: "Nakaka flatter ang comments! Ang babait nila sa kin!"

Sunshine is particularly amused that many think her 18-year-old daughter, Angelina, is a spitting image of her.

"People say I look like my daughters, especially Angelina," she said on Facebook.


"Yes, I guess siya nga talaga ang pinakanakakahawig ko sa three girls."

Sunshine has remained active in the entertainment industry for almost three decades now.

Aside from having Angelina, she also has two more very lovely girls, Samantha, 15, and Chesca, 13.
