    Evergreen Sunshine Cruz ready to turn on the charm as she returns in role of PBA muse

    Oct 17, 2014

    SUNSHINE Cruz may be one of the 'seniors' among this year’s batch of PBA muses, but  the veteran actress hardly feels insecure standing alongside younger beauties who will parade when Asia’s first ever play-for-pay league kicks off its 40th season this Sunday.

    Cruz will serve as muse of expansion franchise Blackwater as it officially starts its maiden season in the league.

    “Of course, hindi naman ako threatened. I am very much confident. I am 37 years old. I have three kids and I am confident naman. Ok naman ako sa sitwasyon (pati) sa buhay ko ngayon,” said Cruz, who is one of the known endorsers of Ever Bilena products,  sister company of Blackwater.

    “Talagang best effort ako, makikipag sabayan ako. Para naman matuwa si boss Dio,” she added, referring to Ever Bilena president and CEO Dioceldo Sy.

    Cruz bared, though, at she’s  feeling a bit tense since this will be the first time in more than a decade that she will act as team muse once again.

    The elegant lady from the well-known Cruz clan of Philippine show business recalled acting as muse for the last time during the days of the defunct Philippine Basketball League (PBL) when she wore the team sash of Welcoat, now Rain or Shine in the PBA.

    “Hindi  PBA yung last na nag muse ako eh. Welcoat yun, sa PBL yun. And I even won the best muse (award) and I was given a ticket to Hong Kong as prize. Yun na lang naaalala ko,” she said.

    But Cruz was elated to know another ageless beauty in Alice Dixson will be part of the league’s entourage of muse on opening day as the former beauty queen is representing San Miguel Beer.

    Cruz, an Ever Bilena cosmetics endorser since 1999, will be sharing the limelight with Binibining Pilipinas 2012 runner Ali Forbes as Blackwater muses.
