Spiritual Pickle

I am as old as the number of years Singapore is celebrating her National Day since her independence. 39! By November this year, God willing, I reach a new milestone of the great 40. I ponder the various permutations of what exciting activity I can undertake to 'celebrate' this reality of being 'middle age': skydiving? walk the whole length of Singapore? ride a unicycle along Orchard Road? go for a movie marathon by sitting in for the movies showing in all the cineplexes of Cineleisure? Any ideas?....

Life: a spiritual pickle preserving the body from decay. Ambrose Bierce, American author (1842 - 1914)
