PHRAE – Another centenarian has been discovered in Phrae where she lives comfortably and in a healthy condition – she hasn’t visited hospital for medical treatment for six years, and sometimes wonders whether perhaps she has lived too long.

Mrs Por is the third woman in the northern province found to be more than 100 years old. She is a resident of Ban Nam Rom village in the Huai Rai sub-district of Den Chai district.

Born on July 11, 1910, Mrs Por met Wednesday with Den Chai district chief Chalermwut Rakkhatiwong who found her of sound mind and good spirits and living with her middle daughter Rung Raksa, 79, and son-in-law Khammee Raksa, 84.

One key to her longevity, she told him, was that she had not eaten meat in about five years. Staff of Huai Rai Hospital confirmed that Mrs Por had not sought medical treatment since 2008.

Despite her good fortune, Mrs Por laments that she may have lived too long. Her eldest and youngest children had passed away some time ago.

Phrae governor Apichart Todilokvej said it was good sign that so many centenarians were living in Phrae, as it helped boost the image of the province

He speculated the local weather and quality food might have something to do with longevity and wondered whether the province might possess the lion’s share of people living for more than a century.

The other two centenarians, who are unrelated, are 100 years and five months old.
