    had you ever experienced this at the shopping mall ... firstly I was stopped by a slimming company promoter to reduce weight.. I declined... then after walking a few steps away, I was stopped by a hair loss product promoter to regain my hair...

    its very depressing.....

    the other day, when i was going home with my girlfriend, some kids gave up their seats meant for old folks and pregnant lady to both of us.

    i tried to explain that i wasn't old or pregnant, and neither was my gf, but they said, "didi, just sit down, you are young and you need to sit".



    aaargggghhhh!!!!

    and then you walked a few more steps and was besieged by many modelling agencies asking you to be their new cover face?

    Being old can be a plus.

    I seem to have better luck with women as I get old.

    Maybe there is an allure and grace in my partially bald, white-haired and wrinkled look with stooping posture and unsteady walk? Or the girls are feeling sorry for me?

    Hi, When old, just look forward to do something daily, shooting, playing, ......go out But don't
    stay put doing nothing. When I enter camera shop, nobody bothers. They think differently from
    my outlook. But they are suprised when I carry D700 with Sigma12-24mm into the shop the next day to look for Canon 5DMk2.

    when one grows old, there is a visible mark on the forehead .... C P F ....
    the older one gets, the more visible are the letters.

    usually all guys will get a "big shock" the very first time an adult came to you and called you, "Uncle" or "Aunty". After sometimes, you will get over it u n t i l .....

    a mother asked her child to address you as, to say thank you to "Kong Kong" or "Ah Ma"

    then you know it's confirmed that you are a senior citizen

    Nothing confirms my senior citizen status than the other day when a barber charges me $8 for a haircut.

    I thought he made a mistake in the change.

    But when I walked outside the shop I saw a sign said "Senior Citizen $8".

    my barber charged me $2 including massage, ear cleaning, shampoo, etc ... usually I spend about 3 hours whenever I am there ... in Gulangyu I usually tip her $10

    unfortunately no other special specials available there

    i think in singapore, "uncle" has become a polite way to address a man older than u.
