When do we call it a day. Throw in the towel. Sit back and enjoy retirement. This is the question that has been going on in Singapore recently. When do we stop earning a living. The crucial question is how do we retire.
I want to go on doing what I am doing till the day I drop dead or invalid. I want to be ready to wave ta-ta when my children leaves the nest. Then to go on to taking arty classes, botany classes not forgetting my stretching classes. I want to be too busy for idle chatters. Too busy for armchair travelling. I want to be ready to once again be a part-time nanny, a chauffeur and a chef when my grandchildren finallly arrives. I want to be sought after as a friend, an advisor but most of all a mother when my children needs me.
