About the Author:

Chuah Tong-Ik, BSc (Hons), DipEd, MEd, has worked as a lecturer and pastor. He is married to Siew Hua and they have three grown-up children and four grandchildren. Now retired, he resides in Penang, Malaysia.


Chuah uses humour and personal anecdotes to discuss a wide range of issues confronting seniors and suggests many tried-and-tested ways of dealing with these. His down-to-earth approach of accepting what cannot be helped and taking positive action wherever possible will inspire one to truly 'embrace and enjoy' the senior years! --Dr Gong Wooi Khoon, formerly a professor at University of Science, Malaysia

In a light-hearted and entertaining style, the author has woven his rich experiences and encounters into a practical, easy-to-read guide on growing old.... This is an excellent read that can be completed in a day -- but I strongly recommend a leisurely re-read to savour the gems of wisdom. --Dr Pang Weng Sun, Geriatrician, Alexandra Hospital, Singapore

This well-reserached, rich, reflective book is a joy to read. It is insightful, wityy and practical. The three fears that seniors face -- unmet needs, sufferinga nd death -- are honestly dealt with. As seniors embrace the "golden years", they need to be prepared and to continue to bless others as well, for they can still bear fruit in old age. --Yin Kam Yoke, retired School Principal and Education Secretary of Methodist Council of Education, West Malaysia
