My cousin, Henry, sent me this video yesterday. Featured in the video is Mimi Kirk, the 2009 winner of PETA's Sexiest Vegetarians Over 50 Contest in the women's category. You won't believe how old she is!

The winner in the men's category is Julian Winter. Click here for the full line-up of the finalists.

I've never really liked eating meat anyway, but since my liver operation last June 2008, by choice meat has been off my diet completely. My staples are vegetables and fish. If I can look half as good as Mimi at 70, I'll even give up seafood altogether and live on vegetables, fruits and nuts!

Do I miss satay, beef ball noodles, char siew, chicken curry, rendang and sup kambing? Not at all. I value my health more than fleeting moments of gastronomic pleasure.

Enough said, or I'll be upsetting my carnivorous friends! :-)
