Coffee-bonding Old Gents
I am not a coffee junkie but I take two servings each day. First is early in the morning and the second, early afternoon.
Instant coffee is my choice early in the morning to recover lost sugar from my daily exercise. In the afternoon, I take brewed coffee in Internet cafes so I can avail of their wifi connection.
Celebrating life at 86
Do you know why you have to celebrate if you’ve reached this far? Because it takes a lot of hard work and a huge dose of luck to make it. In fact, many did not.
The average lifespan now, both male and female is 69 years. But how many of your boyhood friends, cousins, neighbors, work associates are still today? That you are is worth celebrating, isn’t it?
Big boys and their big toys!
As people grow old they undergo physiological and psychological changes that usher in a lot of physical and mental issues.
Physiological changes are generally discernable and can be addressed through lifestyle changes. Only in severe cases is medical attention necessary.
Kahuna is a Hawaiian word defined in Pukui & Elbert (1986) as “a priest, sorcerer, magician, wizard, minister, expert in any profession.”
More subtly, it is “an important person, the person in charge,” or “a very large wave.”
My Kahuna has, figuratively, something of both, i.e., it is magical, it is among the top of its kind, and its guest-friendliness is as big as a surfer’s wave.
What I am talking about is the Kahuna Beach Resort and Spa, in San Juan, La Union, Philippines.
Life is beautiful if you love yourself enough.
That may sound funny, narcissistic, maybe. But I am serious. I love ME and so should you.
To prove the point, I take very care of my physical well-being. I get enough sleep at night, exercise every day and keep close watch of my weight. I don’t have a signature diet but exercise moderation instead. My diet is typically Asian, mixed with a variety of fruits every single day.
Do you want to enjoy life a little longer?
If you hesitate a little bit before answering, it’s probably because you think it is a ‘catch” or a “trick” question.
It is not but, no doubt, you want to live longer, and enjoy life a little more. We all want to do that.
