Is there life after 50?

14 06 2010

juskawaime‘s birthday is near, going to be 1yr older! Oh No!! But aging may not neccesarily bad.  Age is just a number. Don’t focus on regrets,  do count your blessings, do gain confidence and lets us all age gracefully.


“The message we want to bring to people out there is that life is far from over when you get to your 50s. This is the time to do what you’ve always wanted to do; read more motivational books, join a gym, climb a mountain and travel to places you’ve always dreamed of. Stop worrying about being old and sickly. Every day is a blessing and losing out on making that day a happy one can take years off your life.”

“You know, you’re not a man,” Akio Morita, Sony’s cofounder and former chairman of the board said to one of the firm’s senior female executives over dinner one night.

“Nope, that’s absolutely true,” the woman, a single mother divorced with three children, replied.

“But you’re not a woman.”

“Uh, OK. What am I?”

“You’re in a third category.”

Right, she’s a woman boss.

It was some two decades ago that Barbara Annis, now of Barbara Annis & Associates, a firm that advises blue-chip companies on gender diversity and inclusiveness, had that conversation with the late “god of Sony.” But not a lot has changed in terms of how we view female leaders.

Circle Line

28 04 2010

juskawaime heart circle line.. though only took it 3-4times only

It indeed shortens lots of travelling time for most pple..

So now we have 4 mrt lines.. Green (East West) Line, Red (North South) Line, Purple (North East) Line, and Orange (Circle) Line..

Circle line is half way done, big project which take yrs.. but now passengers can enjoy the cut-ride via Bishan, Serangoon and Paya Lebar. Paya Lebar interchange is done v well.. no need to walk for so long to exchange trains… just up/down 2 escalators and there it is! Nice!

And now u need not walk long distance to Suntec City – Alight at Promenade Station.. and those “bird also can’t hatch egg” places like Old Airport Road Food centre (which are more accesible by car/bus) are v accessible now by commoners like us via Dakota Station! *YEAH* Conveniently drop u at the door step! Coolz!! Anyway wants to go and eat Hokkien mee at Old Airport Road Food centre?? I love it.. =)

Nor would u feel like trapped at kallang indoor/outdoor stadium after watching concert/game/show/parade… coz waiting time for taxi and bus are horrendous.. and they are too pack!! Maybe this will give me more incentives to go buy tickets….! =)

Don’t u love it too?

A worthy life

1 06 2009

A life that is worth (worthwhile),

it is not a wealthy life,

not a honourable life,

nor a long life,

but a life that you are “a worthy person”

and a life who makes other people “worthy” also

These Thai Life insurance advertisements are good!
