Amirul Yap On Turning 50

I'm happy. It's not that easy for everyone to reach this age.

Everyone prays for a long life but we don't know at what age we will exit this life.

It's something to be proud of. Age is just a number and I'm glad to have lived to see the changes in my country.

My daughters will always tease me come Merdeka (Independence Day) as I would be as old as the country has been independent.

I'm very proud to turn 50 together with the nation.

Amirul Yusuf Yap is the e-Media research executive of The New Straits Times Press.
