Long Exposure Photography at Blue Hour by Joey J πŸ“Έ


What I am Doing Now (11 November 2022)

Like many people in Singapore (and probably around the world as well), I bought a bike (folding one) and started cycling amid the COVID pandemic in 2020. Two years on, I’m still riding weekly (about 30km on Saturday).

I’m glad I’ve picked up cycling, as this is the only exercise that I can continue, because I don’t like running at all, and I can’t swim much (about 30m only πŸ˜‚).

My folding bike with Singapore CBD. Sometimes riding with Olympus PEN for casual shooting as well.

Since I’m almost reaching 50, keeping myself fit is a must, as I want to stay healthy for as long as I can so that I can finally live my life (not someone else’s life πŸ˜…), spending as much time on my passion projects as possible after retirement.

When people say, “Life begins at retirement”, I always felt it’s too late. πŸ˜‚ Indeed, it’s very late to start living your life at 60 or 70, but sadly, that’s how it is for commoners like myself, considering how little free time I’ve had during all these working years…

So, until the day that I no longer have to work, I’ll keep cycling and keep myself fit so that I won’t miss out on the biggest treat of my life (a.k.a. retirement).

Biking is a great way to get around and see some stuff. Still cycling in our late 60s, we got new folding E-bikes last June and I put over 800 km on mine. Keep on cycling Joey.

    800 km is a lot! Thanks, I still enjoy riding every weekend although the courses are a bit limited (Singapore is a tiny country πŸ˜…).
