Tony Tan learns to rollerblade

Posted on 26 October 2013

Sprawling grounds at his place of residence ensures he gets enough practice.


In a bid to make full use of the sprawling premises of his place of residence, Tony Tan has taken up rollerblading.

The 73-year-old has been blading for the past two years, since he moved into the heart of Orchard Road area.

Tan, a semi-retiree, said: “I’ve been having fun. It’s good to know that I have so much free time now. I was more hectic when I had a full-time job.”

His new found passion for blading has him set his sights on larger goals.

He said he ultimately wants to go out of his house by himself, without any of his staff following him around.

His wife, Mrs Tony Tan, however, said: “He whole day like to say he want to go Plaza Singapura by himself, buy 4Fingers eat by himself.”

“Later KFC call and scold him then he know.”
