Salam Pak idrus,
Happy Birthday. May many more such days appear in your life. At 71 and still in good health, it shouldn't be a problem for you to carry on into the 80's.

Howard, thanks for the visit and the Birthday wishes.

Well, the next time we could toast on Teh Tarik, the Malaysian favourite drink. As for age, I am happy to celebrate another day and enjoy it to the fullest; for my two next door neighbors, one is seventy eight and the other a former teacher is eighty five. With that I consider myself younger between the two of them. Whatever it is I am blessed to be here today surrounded by my loved one on my 71st Birthday.

Have a nice day and take care.

I live a simple live after I retired from the government service at the age of 50 years. And now I am enjoying my life as a pensioner with nothing to worry about.

I blog since I love to write and with blogging my mind is always active. Active minds made a healthy body. For that I am blessed to continue living and enjoying life. My blog is a way of giving back to the society, hoping that in a small way it would do some good to those who read it. And I am enjoy it.
