Two years has passed. Uncle8888 didn't retire from his full-time job as employee to become Spider-man doing Great! In the morning; he gets out of his bed based on level of laziness and the level of sunlight shining through the window which has no curtain! Less washing for Auntie8888. :-) In the day, he spent most of his time as Butterfly viewing different landscapes, green, flora and mini garden across the land of Singapore. In the evening; he changed to Moth who is attracted by lights and most of the time returning home even later than 2 years ago. In MRT stations; he watched out for elders who seen to be lost and asked them if they need help. In bus and trains; he watched out for strange behavior by commuters during off-peak period travel. Funny sights! He at first thought as retiree he will be alone; but the fact is retirees will often gather at various retiree spots and soon we are talking to each other and drinking "free" coffee, tea and reading newspapers. Whatapps chat group is good. He has joined one chat group which has 14 ex-retirees from his ex-company.
