She gets her wish at 114 – a durian treat

19 Oct 2008, Sunday Times

If you were 114 years old, what would you want if you were asked to make a wish? Madam Lau Pay, who is that age, wanted a durian treat.

So, the resident of Villa Francis Home for the Aged was given just that yesterday, when the Tan Chin Tuan Foundation launched its Project Wish 100. Altogether, the foundation will fulfill the wishes of 19 centenarians in seven homes for the elderly, including the Society for the Aged Sick and Ju Eng Home for Senior Citizens, in coming weeks. Madam Lau is the oldest of the 19.
