I was with a few friends in Petaling Jaya last night. My Malaysian friends have retired; and we discussed life during retirement, and getting old. Many of my friends were fit; they play golf, and travel extensively. Two weeks ago, I attended the wake of a long time friend of mine who has been with me in the newspaper industry for almost 30 years. He was only 55, and he suffered a stroke, I understood no one knew about it, until it was too late.
Many of us are alone at some times of the day. As for me, I travel a lot, staying in hotel rooms most days in a year. Well, I sleep alone most nights. How I wish I had company every night; unfortunately it is not the case. Guys, I swear by what I say.
Seriously, dont meant to joke about being alone. But, many of us are alone at times, at home, in the office, while travelling or at an unknown or familiar place. Husbands, wives, girlfriends are not around to help or may have switched off their phones. We may have a fall; we may sleep through and not wake up. We could have locked the room door. The chest was getting breathless and the pain was spreading. We may have only 10 minutes; and we dont know what to do. The only thing we have is our phone or smartphone.
Really, guys and gals, what would you do?
