A poolside SilverHairsClub gathering sometime in Jan/Feb 2017

Club has a plan to hold a members only gathering at a condo poolside, sometime in Jan or Feb 2017. The exact date will depend on the availability which is  subjected to a ballot. The condo is conveniently located close to the train station. We are able to use the pool as one of our members lives there.

We hope to provide this platform for members to meet one another and get to know one another better.  No details on the program but you are invited to contribute an event, if th condo management allows it.

If you think you can help with this activity, please raise your right hand.  Thank you.

Now is the best time to enjoy cool Thai season and culture

Most of Northern and Central Thailand are seeing dry and cool, even cold seasons.  It’s the time of the year when Thais enjoy seeping beer among the rice fields while eating spicy basil minced pork with sticky rice and tomyam kampong chicken.

It’s time to make a journey to Chiangmai, Nongkhai and the border province between Laos, Myanmar and Thailand.  This is also the last rice harvesting crop of the year.  Almost everywhere, farmers cut Hom Mali rice, drying them before storing them for slow use throughout the year.  Rice is in abundance this year.

If you are planning to come to Thailand before 7 Jan 2017, give me a buzz.  We can have a few beers together.

9 Days Yunnan Tour (Sat 18 Feb to Sun 26 Feb)

We plan to purchase our own air tickets and engage an overseas tour operator to conduct the tour. It will be a private group.

We plan to travel together on China Eastern Airlines. The best time to visit Luoping for the Canola Flowers is from 20 Feb to early March. It will be a peak period. My main concern is in securing the air tickets for our preferred days and times.

If you have concern about the difficulty level, I have checked with the tour operator. She said most of the places you can proceed according to your physical fitness. For the Nine Dragons Waterfalls, you can reach the first waterfall in less than 2 km on flat ground and it is up to you whether to proceed to the 2nd and 3rd tier.

If you are interested, please write to shctour@outlook.com preferably by Fri 25 Nov. The early birds will get the worms, those register later might have to pay a higher rate for the air ticket. If you are interested, but need more time to consider, do let me know.

Pound had dropped since Brexit. Now, USD has climbed since Trump.

By now, many of us know that the MYR has fallen painfully for out Malaysian friends against the Sing dollar and the USD.

Further away, the Indian govt has just made 500 and 1000 rupee noted illegal tender.

Share what you think? And where will all this turmoil lead to?  Is this the Trump effect?

For members who have an interest in currency, impact of USD against the SGD, MYR and major currencies, feel free to join SHC WhatsApp discussion at 9489-4360.  Strictly on this topic only. This post and WhatsApp group will close 31 Jan 2017.

The Aftermath

There is so much public outcry against Trump beating HClinton that one gets the  impression most Americans voted for HClinton and beggars the question: Where did the tens of thousands of votes for Trump that brought him victory come from?

From the silent majority – Americans who do not benefit but in fact suffer from globalization. This large group of voters HC overlooked but not Trump. He appealed to them and got their votes!

Through the way he planned his campaign, Trump showed his talent – the winning unconventional ideas that conventional thinking people have no inkling of .

It will be very interesting to see what the president elect will do in his first 100 days in office next year.

Thank you for all your support and coming for the kopi chat this afternoon.  We had an enjoyable time drinking coffee, fellowshipping, chatting and playing rummykub….

Got a surprise. I got myself admitted into the hospital

Some of you have called me, i shall share a fun story with you.

I went to Hougang polyclinic yesterday morning for a routine blood test. Staff was efficient and I got out within 1 hour.  Have to wait one week to follow up with doc for results. Sometime in the afternoon, I received many calls from a number I was unfamiliar.  Late yesterday, I returned the call, and it was from the critical results doc. She asked me to repeat my blood test at any A&E as my potassium level was critically high at 6.5.

So, I went to TTSH, my favourite hotel.  Even though I did not make an appointment with TTSH, the hospital already knew of my coming. I just showed them the hospital SMS, to make sure it is me.

Dracula took some blood and I was put on an ECG. To wait for the results, the nurse put me on a trolley and wheeled me to a waiting room.  An hour late, the doc explained that my potassium was still high and need to repeat. Test repeated and an hour later, it was confirmed potassium at 6.5.

The doc welcome me to stay at TTSH hotel for the night for further review.  Two giant tubes of medication injected into my blood stream. Gosh, it was painful, size of a large colgate toothpaste.

And the staff wheeled me to my room. Two hours later, I was sweaty and faintish. I pressed the button and my blood test now showed sugar level at 2.5. The hospital gave me some biscuits and my black coffee opium. Plus a cup of glucose water to bring up the sugar level which went back to normal at 6.5.

Had a good sleep, and now I have bread and coffee for breakfast.  Morning doc saw me and just told me I can stay one or two nights more at a discount. Good value, I couldn’t say no.

I shall update u on this post. My WhatsApp is 9489-4360.  No need to visit me, as technology is just as good.  I welcome you to communicate with me on this post.

Have a nice Sunday.

Donald Trump attracts more Facebook readers than any other presidential nominee in American history

I  have been following up on Donald Trump since his name was first raised as a Presidential nominee.  He has raised many controversial topics and ideas but the latest and most talked about issue is “Locker room talk”.  There are more and I am sure most of you must have read something about them.

He makes sense on some issues which will change American history and global relations.  He worries the world with his TPP objection.  He talks across oceans with Russia, China, N Korea and Mexico.  He was blunt on sensitive subjects like race and religion.  He attacks previous and current Presidents.  Because of his enormous exposure to the business world, observers do think he can make America richer and wealthier.  Despite his seemingly positive outlook, his personal views on women have caused many supporters to drop supporting him as a Presidential candidate.

What’s your view?  Share your thoughts.  But please do not attack one another personally.  You can challenge the views or comments, but not the person.  Be sensitive when raising issues on race and religion.  As moderator of this topic, I will reserve the right to de-publish any comments on race and religion.

Getting to do what I have always wanted to do, but just cannot seem to get it going right …. 

I am sitting now on an Air India flight to New Delhi.  This is an early morning flight, and after a short breakfast, I could see everyone around me sleeping, wrapped around a warm blanket. Zzzz.

Well, I cannot sleep, so my mind wonders. I think about the many friends and members whom I have met in the SilverHairsClub over the last 11 years. And I went further, pondering where we will be in the next 11 years.

Winding back quickly, I remembered how hard it was to get to find a few good friends to spend time together when we retire.  At that time, I was living and working in Thailand.  I then decided to move to Singapore but at that time, the financial markets crashed, and economic scenarios changed.  And from then, many Singaporeans over 45 lost their jobs. Full time employment was a thing of the past, and today, term employment contracts are common. But I was determined to bring SilverHairs together.  A wish till today.  And that’s how SilverHairsClub started.

A. In 2005, I took up advertisements in various media, and here’s my experiences and adventures starting the Club. One lady who today is very active in SHC met up with me.  I forgot whether she called me or I called her. But I met her over a coffee. During the chat or rather the interview, she questioned me on why I am starting a SilverHairsClub. She had doubts, not about the club but about the person who is starting a Club for seniors.  Her son must have warned her mum about getting involved with men or unfamiliar organisations. But I also remembered her saying her son did say, “go out mum”. I have to admit I had difficulty explaining the objectives of SHC. Yet, I decided to preservere, and make effort to build SHC as a platform for SilverHairs to come together and meet new and more friends.

B.  The Club grew quickly, and within a year, we had our 1st Dinner and Dance. A surprise indeed.  To continue…

Ho Chi Minh City, Free & Easy, Thur 24 – 27 Nov 2016

A few of us have been toying with the idea of going to Ho Chi Minh City, free & easy.  In particular, SS James, Andrew and myself.

HCMC has many exciting attractions. The food is varied; especially street food. Beef noodles are every where. It’s most famous market is the Banh Tanh market.  The cars and motorcycles just don’t seem to hit you, even if you were to cross a 3-lane road blindfolded. Beer is about one dollar a bottle.

For those in the know, HCMC is famous for its cafe.  The ladies are somehow always slim, 28 inch waist.  With Grab bike, one can travel inside narrow lanes and markets.  And the day starts early for the Vietnamese.  And ends late too.

End Nov is cooler, and the weather likely to stay dry.

We can all meet in HCMC. We can have our own mini flexible itinery.  A private massage.  The dates have not been decided but it does not matter. We meet there.

For those who have been there, please recommend the hotel you have stayed before. Maybe near the famous market or Riverside.

Interested, let us know. I think it will be fun.  You can bring anybody along.

Selling investment schemes to fellow SHC members is not allowed

It has come to my attention that some members of the Club are offering investment schemes to fellow members.  These members attend Club events and try to convince fellow members the benefits and rewards from investing in these schemes.

I am also aware that these members have misrepresented themselves as founding members of SilverHairsClub. SHC has been around for the last 11 years and founding members are well documented in the Club history.

This post serves to inform fellow members and those who are offering investment schemes that SHC does not allow the selling of these services in Club gatherings.  

If it should come to my attention again that these members continue to sell investment products or schemes within Club activities, the member involved will be taken off the Club membership immediately.

Please do take note.  SHC will continue to serve as a platform for SilverHairs to meet and make new friends.

Introduction to the World of Acrylic Painting

Hi everyone,
Let me first introduce my humble self – Adeline Yeo – have never written to silver hairs club besides attending a few get together. I am wondering how many of us have always wished to give personalized yet relatively affordable gifts to people whom we get in touch with. Well let me introduce you to the world of acrylic painting, which both young and old, with or without artistic ability can learn easily.

When I first picked up acrylic painting 15 years ago, I had no idea that it would not only bring much joy, creativity, freedom of expression, more friends and best of all extra monetary gains. Acrylic can be painted on most surfaces such as: fabric, paper, cards, fiberboard, wood, plastic and even stones. Thus I hope to share this skill and interest with others who are equally passionate about learning crafts.

The internet, schools and books expose you to a world of both knowledge and confusion about acrylic. Here I list just some of the few subjects:
• Different objects: sceneries, birds, flowers, still life, portraits, landscapes, etc
• Different family of colors within the colors, burnt sienna, raw umber, etc
• Different types of mediums: Retarders, glaze, etc
• Different types of brushes: flat tipped, round, ferrule, liners etc
• Different types of surfaces: Paper, plastic, wood, etc

Internet Links like this: https://youtu.be/AWQ1S1YwkI0

Schools that teach basic acrylic painting: http://pabha.com/ArtClass/Page6.htm
http://www.nafa.edu.sg/courses/part-time/short-courses

Books: Acrylic Painting for Dummies, Acrylic Painting with Passion
The list above is not exhaustive as you can always google or even borrow books from the library. As I was fortunate in the sense that I blindly followed what was taught because I was attracted to the final product that my colleague introduced. So questions like, what should I paint, what kind of brushes should I use, How do I start? These did not hinder my passion. It was much later that I learnt from Arts of Crafts (a school at Orchard Road) and Spotlight that I further increased my interest, but I should add I am still in the process of fine tuning

So without much further ado, let me show you some of my completed artworks, which were ordinary looking pieces of wood and stones which I had them painted as decorative items, given as personalized gifts and some that helped me make some extra income.

I hope this helped in your decision in taking up a hobby that is both therapeutic, relatively cheap and an enjoyment with your kids and a favorite past time.
Regards:
Adeline Yeo

Pearl Hill / Tiong Bahru Trail

imageimageimg_3747

ECs for this walk: Serene Low and ChristinA Chan
Date: Saturday, 1 October 2016
Start Time: 4.30pm sharp
Duration of walk: approx 3 hrs
Meeting Place: Outram Road MRT, Ground level above Green line outside Ananas Cafe.

At Pearl Hilltop, we would experience light breeze, lots of shade under tall trees and a forestry park of many species of foliage.

Thereafter we shall proceed to Tiong Bahru, one of the oldest public housing estate in Singapore developed in the 1930s by the then Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT now known as HDB). The surrounding area of low rise walk up apartments were a stark contrast to the high rise HDB flats we see today.

Added to the charm of this area lies the rich heritage, unique and one of a kind murals, chic cafes and restaurants that have sprouted up in the last couple of years.

Don’t miss this experience to come together for a walk with friends old and new. We will end the walk at Tiong Bahru MRT where there are many eateries for dinner.

So do dress comfortably with hats, umbrella, drinking water, camera, sun block and comfortable walking shoes.

Walk Team ECs: ChristinA Chan, Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Alice Seah, Azhari Cuttlian, Serene Low.
