SilverHairsClub Business networking group

The Club started having its first Business Round table dinner some 5 years ago. We had identified that not all members joined SilverHairsClub for the purpose of social networking. For this group, their interests was finding business networking partners, identifying business opportunities and keeping up with global business trends. This is how the Business Round table dinners started.

Plse note this business networking group is not for Job seekers. It is intended to bring together those who are currently in business, incorporated in Singapore. Those in business, business development, sales or marketing can also join; subject to approval.

To cater to this business networking group, we shall reorganise ourselves as SHC Business networking group.

To participate, the requirements are:
1. Whatsapp your current business card to +65 9489 4360.
2. Indicate registered name and business.

We should have our first meeting, gathering or dinner in Aug 2018.

Our trip will generally be in HCMC, and all the way to the Saigon River mouth to enjoy the majestic South China Sea and coastline. Motorcylists would enjoy this trip.

If you have a tour company whom we can try, please yell. And if you like to join the planning team, plse whatsapp me.

SilverHairsClub Group Leaders GL concept

SilverHairsClub has numerous small groups. When members meet members, and they click, a group is formed. The numbers in the group varies, and this depends on common interests.

SilverHairsClub supports the formation of small groups by Group Leaders GL. Each group has its own outings, its own chatgroup and its own interests. GLs updates their group on the SHC monthly gathering.

As I am unable to chat with members directly, the Group Leaders GL concept works very well for me and the Club. So, if you have a small group formed, plse contact me. Usually, your name will be tagged with the letter GL.

Group leaders GL stand up very well. They keep their group informed of Club activities, gather participation and has direct Whatsapp communication with me. GL do get direct updates from me and usually I do sought their comments and suggestions.

Join the monthly gatherings or interest groups, and you are on the way to becoming a SHC Group Leader GL. Find your interest and join a group,

SilverHairsClub’s objective is to provide a platform for SilverHairs to meet new and more friends.

The rooms are new and well set with clean bright bathrooms. The recce group love the M1 hotel.

HDB 99 year lease – a current topic

About 80% of Singaporeans live in HDB flats on 99 year lease. Many of us fall within this category, and we can read in the media that many Singaporeans and PRs are concerned about the remaining lease years.

Concerns include passing over to the next generation, ability to buy a used HDB flat when the balance lease is 40 – 60 years. Understanding the HDB flat is an asset and what 99 years lease means to retirees downsizing.

Let’s say our HDB flat has 40 years left, what can we do with these 40 years?

Let’s discuss, so that most of us can have a better understanding of this topic and it’s implication.

This year, Loi Krothong is celebrated on the 23th Nov 2018 which is the full moon of the 12th Thai month.

The travel period will be 10D9N, with Loi Khrothong included. This date is very romantic, and the plan is to celebrate the occasion in Chiangrai. Participants will get to loi a floating Krothong along the river and watching it float away. There will be fire crackers, fireworks, floating upwards lighted lanterns and a Loi Khrothing dinner. I hope members will be able to dress traditional thai costumes during the evening.

Our trip will start from Chiangmai city 1N, then up to Chiangrai, the Golden Triangle, cross the Laos border and back to Chiangmai city. We are planning to go to Doi Angkhang and Doi Mae Salong. An overnight in a tent is also in plan plus a cross over the border to Laos.

The rainy season is over, and weather is cool. Beautiful sceneries, mists and clear skies. This period is the most romantic time of the year in Thailand. Nov is also the beginning of the peak seasons. No school holidays.

Guys and gals are encouraged to come join this trip which also aims to help you evaluate living in Chiangmai, Chiangrai and Northern Thailand.

All participants will buy their own return airtickets. You may arrive on 20 Nov in Chiangmai. We spend the 1st night in Chiangmai. You will book your 1st night.

From 21 Nov, everything else will be booked as a group. We stay in Chiangmai on the 28 Nov and leave CNX on 29 Nov. Those who wish to stay later, fine.

I hope this trip will bring members closer together and getting to know new and more friends. Strictly for SHC members only.

If you are interested to join this trip, please indicate your interest here. There will be an early bird pricing, which will be announced mid Aug. Good to find your room mate now.

To participate, whatsapp SHC Chiangmai Nov to +65 9489 4360.

SHC May monthly gathering, date not confirmed

We can have the May monthly gathering if a member raises his/her hand to be the EO. I won’t be available in May and June 2018.

If you have not been an Event Organiser for the monthly gathering, plse give it a good, as all members are expected to organise at least one event for the club.

One option is SilverHairsClub invites outside organisers to handle the monthly gathering. I would assume there will be an organising fee, if we are unable to organise the event ourselves. I hope members would make effort to be an EO, as the Club has expenses, and this is one way to keep the club going. We would therefore no need to hire external organisers.

Look forward to your suport.
