Car battery is about to expired

When I tried to start my car from a cold start (the car engine is cold) it took longer than usual to get it running. I realized that my car battery is about time to expired.

I went to the auto spare part shop this morning, bought a new battery and replaced the car battery by myself. I noticed that my old battery was bought in July 07 and it has served me for more than 2 years.

Based on those 2 facts:
1. It took longer than usual to start the car from cold start
2. Battery age is more than 2 years

It's better to be safe to change the battery before I unable to start my car and stuck at my work place (or worst in the shopping mall). At that time, it will be more costly just to change the car battery (not to mention the emotional cost).
