Fair Luvly March
Peeking into my official diary, I realise its March 2007 already. Time really flies - free time is becoming a luxury now. I remember those younger days when we just could not wait to grow up. My parents would say - "Wait till you are big. Wait till you are old enough!" Okay - I will be hitting the 40 Years in two years time and its like a free gear trip down the hill. Each hour passes by like a blink of an eye. Each day brings new challenges and trials of living as a grown up. Hmmmmm.... most of my friends keeps saying Life Begins at 40! My wife says Mid Life Crisis begins at this time also. After reading Wikipedia's definition she could be right.
What's up Doc?
Test One: Attending Dinners with Oldies Theme
One sure way to remember your timeline is to attend dinners which plays oldies themes. The Malay Car Importers and Dealers Association (PEKEMA)held a dinner recently at Holiday Inn Kuching with the theme Malam Nostalgia. So if the oldies songs that are being sung seems all too familiar it will confirm the age issue. When the new young singers render the new and latest songs that you never heard of and the youngsters in the dinner seem to enjoy it - that would be a second opinion to say "Dude you are growing old".
Test Two: Attend Beauty Contests
Another way of testing whether you still have what it takes - try attending a beauty contest. Fair and Lovely (Unilever Group) is currently organising its Ninth instalment of Fair and Lovely competition. A related website can be viewed at the World Harvest Festival homepage. Recently the semi finals were held at the Tourism Complex. It was quite a fun outing as I got to know some of the contestants up close and personal...ehemmm. But then again that is not the issue now. If you find yourself critical of the management of the event - the sound system, the sequence, the music and lighting, the way the emcees ask the questions rather than cheering like a mad man everytime the pretty ladies on the stage blinks at you - you decide if you are indeed having age issues.
She has the height - one of the Chinese contestants (if my hearing was not wrong her name is Yam Poh Ling and she is from Sri Aman)
So its up to you to evaluate yourself - do you have age issues? Is there something that you feel that you would like to achieve before you hit 40: I can't help enjoying the reality television show about Tommy Lee's attempt to pursue University qualification at the Nebraska University, Lincoln.
No age issue here dude :)
