Here, There and Everywhere ! ...part 2.

Another Active Ager Winner of 2008 being featured on posters all over Singapore is Mr "Rollerblade", Tang Wing Kee. I captured this poster at the major bus stop at MacRitchie reservoir.
Like myself, he is a happy grandfather too.
Like myself, he too was in the education service.
Unlike myself, he has taught only in one school all his working life...St Joseph Institution where he is somewhat of a legend.

Legend? Why not?
Among those whom he has taught are several Ministers like Mr Teo Chee Hean, present Defence Minister and former Education Minister and others.

He only took up the sport of rollerblading after he retired while in his 60's...proving that age is definitely no barrier to acquire new skills...even skills that require much mobility, speed, control and balance.

Wing Kee and unk Dicko appeared on the 93.8 radio programme "In The Living Room" which was aired "Live. That was in early October last year. You can read about it here;
