Oscar Lopez, at 81, conquered Mount Kinabalu

At 81 years old, you would think that Oscar Lopez would just retire in the Bahamas and put on pajamas and walk every single day. No.

I heard from a Lopez that Oscar, the chairman emeritus of the First Philippines Holdings Group,  climbed Mt. Kinabalu in Borneo. This 13,435 feet climb is not for the weak at heart. For Chairman Oscar, he managed to reach the very peak after four days, along with his children.

Such a feat shown by a septuagenarian, such steely will to achieve a personal goal, is admirable to say the least.Oscar is one helluva Pinoy.
