– A toto hongbao with 2 toto tickets for double-measure good luck and prosperity. Hopefully somebody will become a millionaire after this!

– Door gifts for early birds. Come early to choose your own gift while stocks last.

– Best dressed Lady and Guy Contest

Finally, just a gentle advice that in the event that unpaid visitors are thinking of dropping by even for a while, please note that we have reached full capacity in the house and therefore they will not be admitted. Perhaps to avoid disappointment at the next event, kindly register early to secure a place. Hope you understand.

SO LET THE COUNT DOWN BEGIN – HUAT AHHHH!!

Wishing every SHC member a healthy and happy Lunar New Year

Dear fellow members,

Soon, the Lunar New Year is here.  On behalf of the SilverHairsClub, I wish one and all members an enjoyable family reunion and a healthy happy year ahead.

For those who are going up to KL, here”s a video clip to cheer in the festive mood.

SHC matchmakers

(This Post and idea were conceived and written on Nov 2010,  7 years ago.  I must admit we had limited but natural organic success,

SHCians who have been with the club for a number of years will know that we have always been on the lookout for matchmakers.  To avoid misunderstanding, the role was create with no intention to match-make boys with girls, or vice versa.

I had used this role name in the club to facilitiate the match making of members with similar interests.  For example, a new member has joined the club, and is interested to find other friends with interests in tree climbing.  Well, the match-maker will then look around his/her contacts in the club and introduce the like-minded members together.

The criteria to be a Match-mater are:

  1. Has been with SHC for at least a year.
  2. Is an active participant in this forum, and known to other members.

The tasks are:

  1. To take care of new members (20 new members), as assigned by the club.
  2. To assist the new members with finding their interest and participating in the activities.
  3. To constantly keep in touch with these new members.

So, if you are keen to take up this role, please raise your hand.  I will then be in touch with you; and you will be assigned new members.  Initially, I am looking for 5 match makers.

Guided Autobiography (GAB)

Celebrating Life: Telling Your Life Story

A Guided Autobiography (GAB) Workshop

Our silver years are a time for celebration of our lives and our love for life – a time to celebrate our experiences and our uniqueness as individuals. This is a chance to ask ourselves these questions: Where have you been? What have you experienced? What were the key events or people in your life? Where are you at now? Where do you want to go? You might even want to write it down, record it and leave a legacy for your family and friends.

GAB will provide you with the framework to appreciate and document your life story in a supportive group environment. The workshop series will run on every Thursday for six weeks in the Third Quarter of 2018, between 10:00 to 13:00 hours at a venue to be decided. The implementation logistics would be worked out amongst workshop participants. Cost would be shared by participants who are expected to prepare their story for sharing as airtime is limited.

We welcome all seniors above 50 years interested in exploring their life journey. GAB is a platform for seniors to reflect on their life journey and share their experience in a secure environment.

Please register your name here and we will be in touch with you. Closing date 28 February 2018

SilverHairsClub goes on a retirement trip to Chiangmai, Thu 22 Mar – 29 Mar 2018

Advance information. After all the talk on retiring in Chiangmai, about time to put some action into plan.

We are organising a special trip to chiangmai, for members to Chiangmai, with the aim of assessing retirement locations, activities and facilities. The dates are 22 Mar to 29 Mar 2018 (fixed).

A few points:
1. Thai tourist visa, applied at Spore Thai embassy is 3 mths, free. You need to show return air tickets.

2. Kenneth Tan, our regular CM advisor, suggests Scoot flying direct Sin/Chiangmai/Sin. Cost, less than SGD 300. So, you may want to book early. This is non-holiday period.

3. This is not a tourist trip, as it is intended for members looking at Chiangmai as a retirement location. CM will be used as the central and springboard to places in North Thailand. We plan to live the Thai way.

4. Accommodation, we will be staying at a few identified places, within a 1 hr radius from Chiangmai city.

5. Facilities planning will include local fresh markets, hospitals, pharmacies, Internet, parks, bus stations, lakes, night markets.

6. For those with special interest eg cycling, walks, gardening, chickens, Thai cooking, herbs, fishing, ease do research on the Internet. Let me know, and we try to accommodate.

So, please plan ahead. Do join the SHC Chiangmai retirement group, if you are interested.

Bitcoins – Talk and discussion

By now, many people in the world must have heard of Bitcoins. The word is cryptocurrency. Many banks don’t recognise Bitcoins. Government don’t accept it as legal tender. But millions of people today are still wondering what is Bitcoins. Why?

People are buying high end computers to do Bitcoins mining? Internet networks are being tapped for its roaming capability. Reports suggest that tapping onto public WiFi leads to your notebook power being used to mine. What is mining? Why are so many people jumping onto this Bitcoin?

This Post and planned gathering is not intended to get anyone to buy into Bitcoins or any crypthocurrency. Please be warned risks are likely and experts have warned of a big bubble happening.

I am planning to organise a talk and discussion. Venue, date and time not available yet. There will be a cost, subject to venue and speaker. Not idea yet. Someone is assisting to piece together a known speaker. Venue likely a hotel.

As a show of hands, please raise your hands if you are interested, so that planning can go ahead. Unfortunately, I am travelling, but I will have someone to EO this gathering. Strictly for registered SilverHairsClub members only.

Govts are looking at bringing cryptocurrency and Bitcoins under control. There will be new legislation. But how and what and why?

Please continue discussions here. And if you are interested, please register here.

Personal accident insurance vs Travel insurance

This post is open to SilverhairsClub members and also members who are in the insurance business.  Feel free to share and comment.

Strictly, no URL, tel, video and invitations.  No copy and paste. You are allowed to mention the insurance company and your relationshio. Focused on travel and personal insurance only.  Not life, term plans.  Strictly for members discussions only.

SHC members are generally seniors, and at some stage do need travel and/or  personal accident insurance.  A discussion on this topic came up recently, and i thought it is a valuable topic to discuss.  A number of our members are in insurance.

During the trip planning $D3N to Bangkok next year, a lot of time and discussions were placed on taking insurance and which one to pick up.

So, what is the difference between taking a personal accident insurance and a travel insurance?  Personal accident insurance are usually valid for one year. So are annual travel insurance plans?  Can a PA insurance plan be valid for travel.

As a buyer, which plan do you have?, How much does it costs and what is your experience with claims?

Does anyone know if SHC can have a group accident insurance or travel insurance, similar to corporate accident insurance.

A review into Eldersitter and carers services for SHC members

Yesterday, we had a very successful SHC monthly gathering.  As usual, i met many groups.  And i pick up a very suggestion from a few ladies.

The SilverHairsClub members are getting old. So, are friends and family members. and, of course, so am I.  At the same time, many of us are stll working or busy with grandchildren.  The view is SHC has many members.  Why cant we get into self-help.  You help me today, i help you tomorrow.

A simple and real requirement is “Going for hospital appointments”.  How many of us face difficulties sending our parents to hospital for an appointment.  And, short of depending on our children and maids, we will need someone to help us too, one day.

There is also another group, discussing eldercare services.  Unfortunately, costs are high in Singapore.  even travelling, food and time.  all thiese are details, and we can discuss in details,  For some, we see opportunities in earning some income, being an eldersitter or service provider.

Preference for SHC members.  If you are interested in being an eldersitter or carer, join the discussion on whatsapp.  Send “Join SHC carers” at +65 9489 4360.  Tell me in 50 words, your the service yo can provide and your experience.

If you do not get a reply within 2 days, it means your application is not accepted.  Only serious applicants will be accepted.

Share your thots here. What do you think/ How can we help ourselves?  How can we group the strengths of SHC? What is your experience?

2.   Meanwhile please continue to register under “Waiting List” below, in case we have cancellations by deadline 25 Dec and we will replace them with those in the queue.

Thank you for your understanding and looking forward to making this a better Lohei than the previous one.

***************

https://www.aloharesorts.com.sg/home/aloha-loyang

 How to get there:    SBS Bus service No: 354 (loop service) from Pasir Ris interchange

Cost: $30.00 per pax

No. of pax: 63

Some friends want to know what’s in store for the CNY Lohei and the STAMP-ers have just brainstormed what to put up.   It is confirmed on 24 Feb as we have booked and paid for a very spacious bungalow at Aloha Loyang.

While we welcome friends of SHC Members to this celebration, they will be placed on the queue until we have confirmed the headcount for all SHC members who have signed up and paid..

You have 5 very serious energetic creative experienced Lohei members in our team – yes, we will not settle for second best.   Each of us has a unique skill and they’re left to create their own ideas eg:

  • The delicious yusheng with extra fresh toppings which even beats the hotel restaurant standard.
  • A fresh idea for the card games which will ensure that you will not get dementia after this…..
  • The best value-for-money banana cake for tea  – yum yum, for someone who’s v fussy with food, this has passed my QC.
  • The home-made “muah ji” which was generously offered at our previous Lohei.
  • Yours truly will hopefully be able to do a couple of slabs of siew yoke since this is CNY and everybody loves a crispy bite of the lean, moist and juicy meat, provided we have enough left in our kitty.

And something NEW for the first time:   Line dancing (simple steps – electric slide, chillie chacha, come dance with me, bossa nova, etc. – requests welcome).

Please make payment by 31 Dec 2017. Those paid will be confirmed in our list and we reserve the right to accept the next person on the waiting list to replace unpaid registrants after 31 Dec.

Kindly make fund transfer to Treasurer Christina Chan’s  account POSB Savings 542-10756-1 and mention here after you have paid, thank you.
