This 60-something couple run and cycle long distances and climb mountains
At 65, retiree Yip Seck Hong lives a full, active life that people half his age would be hard pressed to keep up with.
The president of the Singapore Mountaineering Federation reckons he has gone trekking in 20 countries and scaled 100 moutains such as Mera Peak (6654m) and Chulu East (6200m) in Nepal and Marble Wall peak (6400m) in Kazakhstan.
Every week, he cycles about 50km from MacRitchie Reservoir to Woodlands and back, which takes him about two hours. On his mountaineering schedule next is a trip to Kyrgyzstan in August to scale a 4,000m-high glacier with 15 others. He will be the oldest person in the group, which consists of mostly 30- and 40-year olds.
