Adjust font size:

A centenarian from a small village in Jiangxi Province, who looks after herself and still does her own embroidery work, has revealed the secret of aging gracefully.

The 105-year-old Chen Jinlan was born on August 20, 1902. She lives alone, cooks and cleans for herself every day.

She can remember century-old songs and even plays games with neighbors. Chen said the secret of longevity is working hard and eating healthy foods like fish, fruits and vegetables. Bitter foods are her favorites.
