Fairy Godmother is still alive

Hi fellow members,

Fairy Godmother is still very much alive. She is now 72, walks around with a walking stick, a bit slow in thinking and very often, sitting and resting under the mango tree. She still dangles her magic wand; but due to weak batteries, the wand seldom works well. She is now thinking of using an Artificial Intelligence Robot to help her thinking and sometimes makes decisions on a behalf.

I am sure some of you have read about a security robot that can patrol large area 24 hours a day, taking over the duties of securities guards and can smell fires, detect faces and can even call an ambulance. But sadly, about two months ago, the robot ran too fast, hit the edge of a water fountain and fell into a pool of water. Her circuitary was wet and she died.

Well fairy godmother is alive. She is still good at moderating quarrels especially among boys and girls. Unfortunately, she can’t talk, so she just waives her wand. Some some comments and posts just disappear at a “Zap”. If batteries are not well charged, sometimes nothing happens.

Fairy Godmother wants to have a smooth and quiet retirement life. But we all know boys and girls do quarrel from time to time, usually because of a misunderstanding. Fairy Godmother is happy to see the boys and girls happy, running here and there and enjoying the good lives on Singapore island.

Fairy Godmother forgets names easily. She is not perfect. If anyone likes to be a trainee God Mother, do let me know. Meantime, she is hoping that more of the boys and girls who are over 45 can help to keep the peace with SilverHairsClub.

Direct Selling : Kumquat Marmalade

I brought my home-made kumquat marmalade to sell for the first time in SHC 2010 flea mart. Thanks to many of you, the marmalade sold briskly. This year, I saw a bumper crop and so decided to sell the kkq marmalade once again.

FYI., the kumquat marmalade is natural, with no preservatives or artificial colouring added.It is hygienically produced and packed into tubs of about 380 gms. On wide request, the recipe has been altered to reduced the sugar content. However, It still tasted great. The price remained at $5 per tub.

If you wished to make an order, pls write to me on whatsapp or on this post. I planned to make the first delivery on 23 Aug ’17 at Gabriella’s coffee chat (see refer to her post on this subject). Thank you Gabriella for kindly consenting to this. The second delivery (for o/s orders, if any) would be at the monthly meeting but this is not finalised yet. Personal collection / delivery will have to be discussed one-on-one separately.

Thank you
Lee Hou Chong

Chat about “Genki-Kaki” over coffee

Lien Foundation arranged for 2 seniors to tour Japan to discover lessons in senior living. Their observations are posted on its website. Just this weekend, BizTimes printed an article “A good Death’ wherein there is a section about “Advanced Care Plan”.

This is the link for Genki Kai.

http://www.genkikaki.com/articles

Would any member like to meet over a cuppa of Starbucks coffee and chat about these 2 issues.

My proposal is to meet for the first time on 14 Aug 2017,Monday morning at around 10:30 at the SBUX coffee store at either HarhourView or ViVoCity. We shall see if a group of like-minded members can be formed to keep ourselves abreast of developments in this field. Of course, we can chat about other issues after the main topic has been covered.

Drink coffee!

Drinking ordinary coffee is a simple pleasure, but now the latest studies on coffee show a strong association between coffee drinkers and longevity! (ST 12/7, pg A18. )Yes, coffee drinkers appear to live longer compared with non coffee drinkers.

For decades coffee was considered an unhealthy drink.  I was drinking coffee regularly and of course was worried. However a colleague pooh poohed the whole thing. She said her father-in-law was a coffee addict and drank coffee every day like water. He passed away at age 88years!

My favourite brew is kopi-O lightly sweetened with raw sugar. Sip it hot. Refreshing!  If at coffee shop I will order coffee sweetened with condensed milk.  Delicious!

Great news about coffee prolonging life.

A POTENTIAL TIME BOMB

The double murder at Bedok should serve as a wake-up call for those who employ domestic helpers in their homes.                                                         They have to ask a few pertinent questions before they embark on such   an endeavor.                                                                                                              1) Do they absolutely need such a service.                                                              2) How much do they know about the helper who is a total stranger in  the household, in terms of her character, psychic, her background. Does she carry a lot of baggage which is a time bomb waiting to explode. It may need a slightest   provocation to set off the explosive scenario and murder.                                        3) Very often they underestimate the physical strength of the “intruder” who can inflict a lot of damages. There was one case of a woman employer who was banged against a wall and died instantly.                                                                   4) Beside the employers, can the maid agencies play a roll in mitigating the danger of providing an almost  unknown person into a home.                                   5) What can the MOM do to regulate such an employment.                                    Robert

Hands-on Basic Cookie Lessons/Tea Session/Chit Chat/(Karaoke-optional) – 3-in-1

                            

                        

               Photos of some of my bakes.

Dear All,

In the past, Terence did bring up this activity to me about conducting lessons on cooking and baking for members.
I have been busy with work, family and social life. Well, I guess its now or never so I am putting up this post to gauge the response.
I am no expert but I have attended several baking lessons and have many many… years of cooking and baking experience.
I started cooking for my family when I was 9+ years old when my mother was taken ill. All my older sisters were in the morning session in school and I was in the afternoon session. Those days, there was hardly any supermarkets so marketing had to be done in the morning.
From then on, I started to develop a love for baking too. My first pineapple tarts were rock hard. That time, I didn’t understand about gluten development so I pulled and stretched my dough too much. My mum said I could crack the wall if I threw my pineapple tarts at it. And when she asked me for some of my tarts to take with her to visit my aunt in the kampong, I was so happy that she wants to let my aunt try it. But she burst my happy bubble when she said its to throw at the dogs in the kampong if they tried to attack her. But I was not one to be easily discouraged. Now my pineapple tarts and cookies are yummy (if I may say so) LOL!

I hope to be able to do a 3-in-1.
That is to have the cookie baking session followed by tea to enjoy the fruits of our labour and talk about anything (and karaoke optional). I shall also make something sweet or savoury (with compliments) to complement the cookies and coffee/tea for the “tea time”. You pay only for the ingredients and miscellaneous items at cost for example, baking paper, paper cups etc. Basically to share what I know and in the process to have fun together. I am not making any profit from this activity.

Date & Time: TBC (probably early afternoon on Saturdays in the third quarter of the     year, when I am in the festive mood)
Venue: In my humble chicken coop in Bedok
No of Pax: 6 pax per session and strictly for members only.

From here, if there is enough interest and support, we could move on to more “difficult” cookie recipes and maybe include some simple cake and bread making too. However, I can’t teach cake deco except piping of cream rosettes.

Yay!!! Weekend is round the corner.  Have a good one!
Stay Healthy & Happy!  Its a bonus if you are lucky too!
