At 92 and 93 respectively, Suzanne and I are in our 68th year of marriage and, looking back on the years, we truly have been ‘dancing in the light of God’…with whose guidance and blessings, we gratefully treasure all our precious adventures together, while always looking forward to more…
As evidenced in the caricature of us (originally drawn by an artist friend, Fuad Zain), my lovely wife, Suzanne, is outgoing and a super achiever. Always dressed to the nines and still strides out steadily in her high heels, she is an artist and paints on anything she gets her hands on, a jewellery designer, her own dress-maker, a home-maker, hostess extraordinaire, life of the party, friend to anyone, gardener, counselor and a prayerful person.
Ever ambitious, Suzanne took up voice lessons at the tender age of 72. She has since been the most senior and mature singer in the many choirs of the church, singing her heart out, with her timbre and semi-operatic voice during weekend Masses.
I am the anchor of the family, blessed with a good sense of humour, and a love for music, football, badminton and movies, apart from my Church apostolate activities. About a dozen years ago, I took to learning how to use the computer and email, which opened up a whole new world to me…
Through the years… in an effort to keep the family as fit and as healthy as can be, Suzanne has adopted every possible method of keeping in good shape into her daily routine… and continues to be a source of inspiration to everyone around her.
Her current hobbies are undoubtedly keeping her looking fresh and youthful, as physical exercise strengthens the muscle, while mental training conditions the brain. We realize the secret to youthful vigour is to keep the brain stimulated to do new things. One of the reasons for the starting of our blog is to hopefully share with anyone interested, some of Suzanne’s tips on her keep fit routines.
Together, we are thankful for our loving family and truly blessed with loving, caring and sincere friends around us at all times. For that, we are always grateful to God for his countless blessings upon us…..

Suzanne and Tony
On 19 April 2016, Tony Lee returned peacefully to the Lord. We miss him terribly but know that he is in a better place. This blog will continue, with Suzanne at the helm.
