An Old Man

This morning, my wife went to BDC for a bite. Mildred ordered a bowl of laksa (which looked nice). I took the opportunity to talk to the old man who cooked the laksa. He was quite friendly and we were able to strike a good conversation. He was telling me about his life as a young man; about his children; and how he had to work hard to survive and feed his family. His talked about his involvement in buying shares, only to be cheated by some bad big shots. Pity him. He talked about his heart ballooning done at Normah. He is 81 years old, still selling laksa at BDC.

There are plenty of things to learn from him. I enjoyed the conversation.
