Liu said:

“People are often shocked to find out I’m almost 50. Whenever I went shopping and told people my real age, I often got mobbed by strangers who wanted to find out my secrets.”

So what exactly is the secret for her youthful appearance?

According to Liu, it can be credited to regular exercise – which she’s been doing for three decades now.

Liu goes as far as telling that she has “swum across the Yangtse River in China and the Han River in South Korea,” reported BoredPanda. Last year, she also swam from the shores of Penang, Malaysia to the Strait of Malacca which is “a whopping 7.45 miles in just 4 hours!”

Liu shared her motto in life is “If you think you look rough, that’s because you haven’t sweated enough.”
