Here are some advice for we silver hairs.

A Wholesom Advise for all of Us

Here are some advice for we silver hairs.

Between age 60 and death.
It’s time to use the money you saved up. Use it and enjoy it. Don’t just keep it for those who may have no notion of the sacrifices you made to get it. Remember there is nothing more dangerous than a son or daughter-in-law with big ideas for your hard-earned capital.

Warning: This is also a bad time for investments, even if it seems wonderful or fool-proof. They only bring problems and worries. This is a time for you to enjoy some peace and quiet.

Stop worrying about the financial situation of your children and grandchildren, and don’t feel bad spending your money on yourself. You’ve taken care of them for many years, and you’ve taught them what you could. You gave them an education, food, shelter and support. The responsibility is now theirs to earn their own money.

Keep a healthy life, without great physical effort. Do moderate exercise (like walking every day), eat well and get your sleep. It’s easy to become sick, and it gets harder to remain healthy. That is why you need to keep yourself in good shape and be aware of your medical and physical needs. Keep in touch with your doctor, do tests even when you’re feeling well. Stay informed.

Always buy the best, most beautiful items for your significant other. The key goal is to enjoy your money with your partner. One day one of you will miss the other, and the money will not provide any comfort then, enjoy it together.

Don’t stress over the little things. You’ve already overcome so much in your life. You have good memories and bad ones, but the important thing is the present. Don’t let the past drag you down and don’t let the future frighten you. Feel good in the now. Small issues will soon be forgotten.

Regardless of age, always keep love alive. Love your partner, love life, love your family, love your neighbor and remember: “A man is not old as long as he has intelligence and affection.”

Be proud, both inside and out. Don’t stop going to your hair salon or barber, do your nails, go to the dermatologist and the dentist, keep your perfumes and creams well stocked. When you are well-maintained on the outside, it seeps in, making you feel proud and strong.

Don’t lose sight of fashion trends for your age, but keep your own sense of style. You’ve developed your own sense of what looks good on you – keep it and be proud of it. It’s part of who you are.

ALWAYS stay up-to-date. Read newspapers, watch the news. Go online and read what people are saying. Make sure you have an active email account and try to use some of those social networks. You’ll be surprised what old friends you’ll meet.

Respect the younger generation and their opinions. They may not have the same ideals as you, but they are the future, and will take the world in their direction. Give advice, not criticism, and try to remind them that yesterday’s wisdom still applies today.
Never use the phrase: “In my time.” Your time is now. As long as you’re alive, you are part of this time.

Some people embrace their golden years, while others become bitter and surly. Life is too short to waste your days on the latter. Spend your time with positive, cheerful people, it’ll rub off on you and your days will seem that much better. Spending your time with bitter people will make you feel older and harder to be around.

Do not surrender to the temptation of living with your children or grandchildren (if you have a financial choice, that is). Sure, being surrounded by family sounds great, but we all need our privacy. They need theirs and you need yours. Even then, do so only if you feel you really need the help or do not want to live by yourself

Don’t abandon your hobbies. If you don’t have any, make new ones. You can travel, hike, cook, read, dance. You can adopt a cat or a dog, grow a kitchen garden, play cards, checkers, chess, dominoes, golf.

Try to go. Get out of the house, meet people you haven’t seen in a while, experience something new (or something old). The important thing is to leave the house from time to time. Go to museums, go walk through a park. Get out there.

Speak in courteous tones and try not to complain or criticize too much unless you really need to. Try to accept situations as they are.

Pains and discomfort go hand in hand with getting older. Try not to dwell on them but accept them as a part of the life.

If you’ve been offended by someone – forgive them. If you’ve offended someone – apologize. Don’t drag around resentment with you. It only serves to make you sad and bitter. It doesn’t matter who was right. Someone once said: “Holding a grudge is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die.” Don’t take that poison. Forgive, forget and move on with your life.

Laugh. Laugh away your worries Remember, you are one of the lucky ones. You managed to have a life, a long one. Many never get to this age, never get to experience a full life.

Travelling experience with seniors

A top activity among seniors is travelling. Many of us love to go JB, further to China, and further still on a cruise from HK. Of course, it costs money, but for many we want to see the world at 60, 65 and 70.

Many seniors prefer to go with a friend or a group. So, we join a group, but sometimes, our travel partners become enemies. And the rest of the trip becomes sour, and we never want to see the other person again. Why?

Teenagers, young adults handle social communication better. But seniors and retirees fare badly on many issues when travelling together, despite a good 50 to 60 years living experience on earth.

“I just can’t stand why she spends such a long time making up in the toilet”.

“This lady is a bitch, real bloody bitch. I will never go out with her again.”

“Who does she think she is? She thinks she is still young. I don’t want to be associated with such people”.

“This guy is very stingy. He waits and waits and won’t offer to buy you a drink. So kiam siap. I can pay myself. No need him to pay for me”.

How do we go out travelling together and still come back as friends? Better still as closer friends. Are we the perfect travelling friend?

Let’s chat without hinting at who’s the person. Let’s discuss how we can be better travelling companies.

Living out the last active chapter of life.

We retired from our active employment many years ago, more than 10 years ago. We decided to enjoy through travelling after joining SHC around 2013, meeting Terence and in some ways, inspired by him. We noticed SHC members travelled widely and in short notice. Soon we came up with a 26 days free and easy tour of France, Spain and Portugal. Terrence was supportive and encouraged us to blog as we moved along. We agreed but never materialised. We quietly left and returned. We were unsure if we could get along well in such long trips. Since then we thought we have travelled quite widely, but a recent chat with a SHC lady proved otherwise. Our group, since 2013 have travelled, to name a few,

1. France, Spain and Portugal, Britain       – 52 days
2. Turkey, Greece, Italy……                        – 42 days
3. Bali, Surabaya, ……………                     – 21 days
4. Thailand, Laos, Yunnan ….                    –
5. A long list to bore you …. Shy to mention, because not well presented but anyone keen to know and see some of the places we have visited is welcome to our site at http://traveloffthebeatentracks.com/

And why all these intro here???

Simply and short……My friends and I are going on a short trip to Myanmar from 8th January to 17th January 2019. We feel that it might be nice to have more to join.

We are going by Jetstar flight 3K581 and back by flight 3K582. We have purchased our return air ticket at S$111.

This post is to invite our SHC members to join in.

When we travel we mostly have a room to ourselves unless we cannot secure 4 rooms in the hotel. We have booked our Yangon hotels for the first few days. 

Yours in SHC
Chan Keng Ngee

Wishing all members a Merry Christmas

This is a good time to remember our good times together.  It is also a good opportunity to know how many friends we have made, since joining the SilverHairsClub, and how many we have decided to let go.

Very often, we wonder  why other people are just not nice at all.  Let’s enjoy the year-end and let’s wish our friends and fellow members a Merry Christmas.

Calenders and diaries

Each year, at this time, some of us have spare diaries and calendars. By 1st Jan 2019, these items are likely not nice as gifts, if not given away.

If u need a diary or calendar, do ask here. If you have spare diaries or calendars, say you have them here for giveaway.

Self drive Phuket – Bangkok April 2019

“Around scenic Phuket”

Next year 2019, I have in plan to organise a “Self drive trip from Phuket to Bangkok” for SilverHairsClub members only.

The period is likely April 2019, and unlikely during the mid April 10-15 Songkhran water festival. Approx 9 days in total.

Starting from Phuket, the drive will take us along beautiful coastal beaches, coconut trees, wooden villages, small seafood stalls, small towns and crossing the narrow land stretch between the Amdaman sea and the Gulf of Thailand.

This trip is for:
1. Drivers only with a valid Singapore licence.
2. Able to read and use Google maps.
3. The cost of car rental, insurance, car parking, petrol and toll will be equally split among all participants. Estimate cost SGD 100 per day, split 4 participants.
4. Each car will be 4 pax only. Each car will require to have two full time drivers.
5. We will not be driving inter-towns after 6pm. However, we will drive at night around the town at night. Therefore, drivers should not have night vision difficulties.

Start and end dates:

  1.  The start date will ne decided when all drivers decide, on a majority vote, on 15 Jan 2019.  Trip ends 9 days later.

Rented cars:

1.  Website: https://www.rentalcars.com/

2. Start point: Phuket Airport (HKT).  You may chose to start from Phuket Town.

3. End point: Donmuang, Bangkok. You may choose to end anywhere in Bangkok.

4. Budget rental: SGD 30 – 50 per day. Decision to be made by the two drivers of each.  For planning, please use SGD 100 per day for 9 days for all driving expenses.

Rooms:
1. Hotel room will be advised for 1st night in Phuket only. Plse wait.
2. All other nights will not be prebooked, and will be decided as we reach each town on a daily basis.
3. Participants should note we will go for 2 or 3 star hotels twin share only, approx SGD 30-45 per room night.

4. Non-driver participants. The front two drivers in each car will decide if and who they would take as non-drivers passengers.

Besides shared car rental, petrol, toll, car park, and insurance, the back two passengers will pay an additional SGD 15 per person per day to a pool fund for dinner, as recommended by the treasurer.

Unlike Chiangmai and North Thailand, this trip will see plenty of flat lands and long stretches of sea. Food wise, we can expect plenty of fresh seafood, southern thai food (spicy), both Chinese and Muslim style.

Plse note ALL participants will have to do some planning and research. We won’t be on a guided tour but our own holiday free and easy drive.

If you are interested, and meet the above requirements, please whatsapp me at +65 9489 4360. I expect to start planning in Jan 2019.

Please indicate if going as driver or passenger. All back seat pessengers are on waiting list, subject to driver approved basis.

Private invitations to members with the intention to offer investment schemes

It has come to my attention that a number of members have been invited to private gatherings where the host and friends offer investment schemes to fellow members. Members are advised to be cautious with any investment schemes. And if members choose to go along the schemes, the decision and risks are yours.

These schemes usually attract seniors and retirees who have some sum of money and who wish to maintain or increase their retirement funds.

Members who are aware or have been offered such schemes can contact +65 9489 4360.

SHC Meeting

Having SHC Meeting in CBD could be quite costly for drivers who parked in CBD for meeting. Estimate parking fee $30+ for 3 to 4 hrs parking.

A meeting outside CBD with MRT & bus facilities may be a good compromise.
