Sum Ying Fung, who turned 112 Thursday, is believed to be the oldest person in Canada following the Sunday death of Manitoba woman Elizabeth Buhler, who was days away from her own 112th birthday, the Vancouver Sun reported Friday.

Fung, speaking in Cantonese, with her son, Suey Kee Fung, 79, serving as interpreter, said her advice for those who want to duplicate her longevity is to `eat anything, eat everything` and to drink hot water because cold water can be contaminated with germs."

Finally, there`s an elderly woman who attributes her long life to her philosophy of "eating anything and everything." Amen!

If I make it to the ripe old age of 100, I will claim that my secret is munching on pork and fried chicken, drinking beer, smoking weed, and fooling around.

Of course, I will probably drop dead of a heart attack before I turn 65.
