This morning Uncle8888 saw this senior auntie and waved at her. She smiled and waved back!
Senior auntie has been riding on her bike (not sure) it is everyday morning or evening to catch Pokemon (sometime saw her in the evening). She has been doing it since the Day of Pokemon Craze in Singapore. We are staying in ex Pokemon Hot Spot - Blk 401, Hougang Ave 10. Three Pokemon Stops and spawning ground of rare Pokemons. Hardcore? No, no, no!
She has finally found riding her bike with a purpose - an incentive/reward or purpose or meaning to cycle over far distance to achieve the real purpose that is her EXERCISE and passing time. It can be quite boring to cycle alone with no real purpose or tentative goal in mind. Mindless sole cycling over long hours is no much fun. Very few seniors can do it sole over long distance and over hours of cycling for doing it as form of exercise. Uncle8888 also knows another neighbor senior uncle sometime cycled to Punggol and Pasir Ris for fishing. From Hougang to Pasir Ris and then back to home is really far distance.
Uncle8888 was once an active Pokemon with his power walk and dashed faster than few other younger trainers to catch the rare ones under minutes. Pokemon as an incentive/purpose/meaning to achieve that real form i.e. physical exercise. The real reason to dash or sprint to that spot. No madness to run like Hell!
I am 61 yrs old uncle living in HDB heartland who has achieved financial independence @ 56 and retired @ 60 from full-time job as employee.
Single household income since 1995 with three children. Eldest son and daughter are now working and youngest son still in his 2nd year uni in SUTD.
I have been doing long-term investing and short-term trading in Singapore stock market only since Jan 2000 so I am that Panda or Koala in the investment world; but I am still surviving well in the wild.
I am now executing my Three Taps solution model to maintain sustainable retirement income for life till 2038.
