127-year-old Ali Mihan from Shule County in northwestern China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is very likely to become world's oldest person.

She is currently awaiting accreditation from an international organization, the Xinjiang Daily reports.

Ali has been China's oldest person since Luo Meizhen, from southwestern China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, passed away this June at the age of 127.

Ali Mihan was born in Shule, famous for its high density of people who live into their advanced years. She was born on June 25, 1886 when China was still in the reign of the Qing Emperor Guangxu. Her habit of drinking cold water and an outgoing personality are believed to have contributed to her long-lasting health.

Today, the elderly granny still loves singing, going shopping and visiting her friends and relatives.
