Never too old

The DJs were talking about the up and coming YAH programme for people over 50s this morning. The whole idea is for people over 50s to be more active and socialable. Learn about new thing at their own pace. The concept is so interesting. I would love to promo this to my parents but it is on a saturday. Even if they are free, i doubt that they would want to join anyway.

Ming De was talking abt how his mother would flip thru magazine, newspaper eventhough hardly understand what it is. I was reminded of my granny who lived up to ripe old age of 80, she used to do that to. She would go thru the Chinese newspaper page by page and seeming reading. Back then, i was really amazed that she can read but in actual fact she can hardly. She was trying to pick out familiar words she known and occasionally asking us. I dun think she can rememder what we have juz told her but it is the spirit that i greatly admired abt her. Never too old to do anything; Never too old to learn. It is even more so when i realised that not old people are like that. I really missed her.
