On Thursday, September 23, Ja Hyung Lee turned 111-years-old. He celebrated at the Amenida Seniors Community in Surrey, British Columbia. His party was complete with a choir performance, a saxophone player, and traditional Korean dancing.
Before cutting the cake, Lee shared his personal secret on having a long and healthy life.
“The secret to celebrating a 111th birthday is to exercise daily, surround yourself with good people — friends and family — practice your faith, and try not to get too stressed out about day-to-day life,” he says in a release.
“I’m lucky to be celebrating today alongside my friends and family.”
He was also joined at the party by Senator Yonah Martin’s Chief of Staff; Ambassador of Seoul, Michael Chang; President of Korean’s Veteran Association, Woo Seuk Lee; and President and CEO of Primacorp Ventures Inc., Dr. Peter Chung.
