Centenarian celebrates birthday

Azlan Othman

It was indeed a very special day for Haji Anggas bin Lamudin who celebrated his 100th birthday yesterday with a family gathering attended by dozens of sons, daughters and grandchildren at Kampong Pasai I in Sengkurong.

Family members treated sash-wearing Haji Anggas with a birthday cake marking the special occasion.

Asked on his secret to longevity, Haji Anggas from Kampong Tanjong Nangka said he only eats boiled fish and vegetables, and avoids grilled/fried food.

“I also recite Surah Al-Ikhlas 1,000 times a day and never miss my five times a day prayer. I love to read Al-Quran but nowadays, I feel pain in my hip when I sit too long. My sight is also not clear these days,” he said.

Haji Anggas has 11 children, 35 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.
