The age has spoken..

I am not feeling well this week.This morning,I had to see a doctor because I felt grooggy in my head and  weak in my chest.On inspection and test,my sugar blood is normal and blood pressure is okay.I was told that I must eat carbo in the morning and take care of my diets.It was due to low sugar in my blood.This morning,I ate oats with milk and drank Nescafe before my solat suboh.I started feeling weak and sick while performing my solat at the masjid.The Imam read Surah Sejadah and Surat Al-Insan and my body was struggling to keep standing.My age has spoken that I am a de facto senior citizen with physical limitations.Gone were my roaring 40s and rolling 50s.I became a 60 years old man in September,2012 but I still felt young three years ago.Now,not any more...Now, I must behave like any other senior citizen.

This week is a great wake up call for me to be aware that I am in my 60s..I am blessed with good health for the last six decades and at the moment do not suffer any major or chronic illness.I am not on any medication.My only daily supplements are cod liver oil,garlic oil and pharmaton.Alhamdulilah.

I still work for my living and do not have any pension like many of friends who worked for the government.I am still working 2 or 3 days a week as a business/project consultant. From next month September,2015,I will be will giving lectures/coaching to MBA students in a local business school.This is my way to share and impart my 30 years experience to the next generations of business leaders.For my family business,I have been coaching and grooming my youngest son to take over and run my business.Hopefully,I can handover fully in two years time when I am 65 years old and he is 28 years old,insyaAllah.

Cerita Kedaikopi : # 86-31.03.2002

The only way we're going to lose our relevance is if we stop learning..

"I have been reading your 'Cerita Kedaikopi' stories but I still have

not finished reading the previous ones",said

my friend who happens to be one of my avid readers."Well, I took four

years to write 85 stories but please donot

try to read them within a month. Take your time and read them at your

own pace-otherwise you will have indigestion.

By the way, don't forget to read my other weblogs and travel journals as

well", I replied. Then he asked," How come

I do not receive anything this month?

'Honestly, it is easier to read than to write. What more if one is busy

with one's own business and some urgent

family matters to attend to. My wife's uncle, a well known writer once

told me: You can't do both; either you

write or you do business. He is right and spoke from his experience. He

started writing and became a publisher

I was on the Transit Train from KLIA to Putrajaya yesterday.On the way,I saw a dark cloud and I prayed to Allah to delay the rain until I arrived at Putrajaya Sentral where I park my car.On arrival,I was greeted with a down pour!OMG,now,I had to wait for the rain to stop.I was complaining..
There was no way for us to get to our car without getting wet.My wife suggested we walk around the station..May be we can buy dinner to take away.As I walked around reluctantly,we came upon a kiosk selling coffee/cakes.We were offered a small free cup of coffee as part of their product promotion.Immediately I accepted the offer.Having hot coffee on a raining day is great!
As we moved around,we came upon a Kerepok Leko Stall.This is another lovely surprise!We ordered a set of kerepok leko and enjoyed our 'high tea'.By the time we finished our meal,the rain stopped and we went to our car and drove home.

The above is my short story.The moral of the story is for you to interpret and take home a le…
