Singapore baby boomers live life to the fullest! April 12, 2009

Singapore baby boomers are determined not to let life pass by them. Many are determined to live life to the fullest, and this to me is highly commendable and inspiring.

A group of them grows  herb plants on a small plot of land below their apartment.  And they are making a great success out of this project.

Another group learns magic tricks, and after mastering the art they visit homes and schools to give free performances.

While yet others learn how to play the drum, convinced that drumming helps to keep depression at bay.

They are in uncharted waters but they are blazing a path for other Singapore baby boomers to follow suit. I think this is inspiring.

Especially their desire to banish the myth that oldies are useless, and should be put out to pasture as soon as possible. What one fool can do, another can too says an ancient proverb. And that should be our rallying cry.

By 2030, one in five Singaporeans will be 65 and above.

    An fascinating discussion is worth comment. I think that
    you must write more on this subject, it
    may not be a taboo topic but generally individuals are not sufficient to speak on such topics.
    To the next. Cheers
