My post on my FB yesterday ... when I was asked what I want to do after I retired.
Retirement plans ... my dream.
1. I like biking
2. I like to take pictures.
3. I like to blog
4. I like to do some charities
5. I love Malaysia
So ... after retired, I will be travelling around whole Malaysia on my bike ... taking pictures of charitable-homes and promote them in my facebook and blog. I will create an organisation for that and do crowd-funding.
These are my retirement plans ... we need to do what we love and close to our heart.
I want to elaborate ... add in also that "I like listening to songs".
Once I m retired ... I will be focusing in doing things close to my heart ... that doesn't mean what I m doing right now is not important ... it is a process.
BIKING : I m still riding bike (my kapcai) ... and will be getting a new bike once I retired. It could be a simple kap-cai or a good big bike. It doesn't matter to me as it does not define me! Importantly, I manage to travel on the bike ... from places to places, to carry out my tasks and mission. Well ... I won't mind a Vulcan, tho. Hehe.
Yes ... I would love to ride my bike ... round the whole country, and in touch with most of my trading-members (by the my whole stock-watch group would be free) ... thank them personally for their supports all these years and spread with them my doings (into charity) and gather some supports from them too.
MALAYSIA : I will only travel the whole country ... yes, Malaysia only. I love my country very much .. irrespective of political or religious differences ... charitable organisations SHOULD be independent. I will make such the organisation I m going to create would be one! And yes, to help Malaysians ...!!
Happiness is doing what close to heart ... in small scales .. or large, it doesn't matter.
PHOTOGRAPHY : As I do like to take pictures (not selfie, not food ... ), I will be taking lots of photos of those charitable-homes and inmates. I will promote them ... will like to create awareness ... thru lenses.
Yes, I will learn photography ... get some equipment and enjoy those creation on mine! That would be my hobby-in-making ... and I have bought a basic DSLR (digital) camera to play with.
I know I will enjoy ... biking to places, take pictures of those charitable homes ... and blog about it!!
BLOG : Yes ... perhaps change this blog into charity-blog ... and link with more charitable homes, employ someone to updates and create blogs for all the homes I m visiting!! This is still in "fairy-land" at the back of my mind ... but, hey, I like blogging ... and you could see that I will blog about things I like! Isn't that LIFE? haha
Alright ... adding in SONGS ... I like that too. I will be listening to songs while riding the bike, while working on blogs ... while on the move!! I need earphone, headphone, mp3 player, disc-player etc etc. haha.
QUESTION : If you are retired, what have you been doing? Are you doing something you like ... and enjoy? Something significant? If not ... would you like to JOIN ME?
For those around my age (near 50), what are your plans when retiring in years to come? Would you like what I m planning to do? Would you like to JOIN ME?
I will ask this question again ... when I retired.
Time to move again ... Have a nice Sunday.
