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.

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

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?

SHC CNY LOHEI, SATURDAY 24 FEB 2018 (EC EVENT)

UPDATE NO. 1 (16 Dec 17):

1.  Can we request for payment to come in by 25 Dec since we have reached the targeted 50 pax.   Once all payment has come in, we can start choosing the best caterer and secure our booking because it’s the CNY season, a very busy time for caterers and we’d like to plan early.  Thank you.

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.

 

Time:  3.00 pm – 11.00 pm

Venue:  Aloha Loyang Seaview Bungalow (please click the link for layout and shuttle bus service):

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:  50

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.

Free and Easy 4 days 3 night to Bangkok from 10Jan to 13 Jan 2018

May this Christmas end the present year on a cheerful note and make way for a fresh and bright New Year. Here’s wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! May your Christmas sparkle with moments of love, laughter and goodwill, And may the year ahead be full of contentment and joy.

——-‘xxx—–×××××××——×××××—

Good morning everyone.

I shall be organising 4 day 3 night trip to Bangkok from 10 to 13 Jan 2018.

1 Terence hosting a southern Thai dinner for all participants coming with Stella’s group. Genuine authentic southern Thai food. U are guaranteed to like it.
 Near thonglor BTS train station.

It seems Soi Thonglor is a pretty good spot to indulge in Southern recipes, from the long-established, baan-baan Kua Kling Pak Sod to the cute Phuket Town. Now, the owner has brought his grandparents’ long-popular Mueng Korn (Nakhon Si Thammarat) recipes to this bar-centric district.

This branch boasts a sleek façade with floor-to-ceiling windows covering the two-story venue. Upstairs is for private dining while downstairs reminds us of the green décor of the original branch, but brought up to date with glossy leather chairs. Tall bookshelves run along the walls alongside framed newspaper articles singing praises.

The menu here is well-designed and it seems you can just point at random because every dish we’ve sampled is a must-try. Start with the pad sator kapi goong (stir-fried prawns with sataw beans, B220), which boasts well-rounded flavors thanks to the shrimp paste and fresh and crunchy beans.

The gaeng luaeng pla sam lee (spicy sour soup with black-banded trevally and fermented young bamboo shoot, B180) is an impressive combination of sour and spicy, but we wouldn’t recommend it to anyone who can’t handle a little heat.

Don’t worry, though, they still have plenty of milder options, like the moo kapi (steamed pork in sweet shrimp paste, B180), a delicious blend of sweet and salty. The khua kling moo(herbal, stir-fried pork, B180) is surprising in that it isn’t all that spicy, though it’s still packed full of flavor.

Prices here are slightly more expensive than the original venue, but you’re still bound to get bang for your baht, which explains why the restaurant is packed with in-the-know families during dinner and on weekends.

2 For those who wants to  be Pampered you may join us for full body aromatherapy massage and / or sauna  to ENJOY the luxury of the King and I Sauna.
The cost is reasonable as our Spore currency is strong for such a ” high end ”  spa  environment with excellent facilities.
Masseurs are trained and experienced.
You will slept soundly when the massage therapy was applied on your whole body.

3 We can be naughty. Go where the guys go. And Ballroom and Latin dancing at club.

4 We can visit 1 of the Top best high rise Roof Top Bars or visit to the night club, only the local can go. That was fun… lol

5  And, for those who cannot sleep early, I offer to bring you to Yawarat Chinatown for late night porridge.

6 The Damnoen Saduak Floating Market and Rose Garden.
The Grand Palace or the  Vivamek Summer Mansion building made completely of wood.
The Jim Thompson Silk House etc

Pls take note of the travelling date:
SIN BANGKOK 10 JAN 2018
BANGKOK SIN 13 JAN 2018

December I will be in Spain, Surabaya and Bali.

This trip’s transport will be facilitated by B.T.S.(Same like M.R.T) Those who are interested please registered or msg me at 94593681 and I will add u to my “Bangkok-Discuss” group.

Cheers !

SilverHairsClub has one objective, and that is to provide a platform for SilverHairs over 45 to meet new and more friends. Club does not have the resources to moderate issues between members. I can only advise members to find peaceful means to resolve any differences.

Members who find other members not acceptable in anyway, can choose to leave the Club. I have one philosophy “Stay away from those whom u find distasteful. Don’t let anyone make you unhappy”.

Fairy Godmother is going overseas for her holidays. She doesn’t want to be disturbed on this matter.

Like wat Terence always say.
He can’t dictate to organisers…

If members not happy they can resign

Business networking before or during retirement

As a follow-up to our recent SHC Whatsapp Business group, an interesting suggestion came up and I think it is worth pursuing.

Many members have worked in corporate life, and have good contacts in companies in Singapore and other countries. When members retire or about to retire, these members usually give up all their valuable connections.

Meantime, we have members over 45, who are expanding their mid life career, and are developing new contacts and networks. As a step ahead, SilverHairsClub can connect members with your contacts in your previous corporate life and undustry. You may have been in manufacturing, in arlines, in fertiliser, in agriculture, in trading, engineering, automobile, logistics, commerce, etc. You may have been a driver, a secretary, an executive, a manager or a VP.

The outcome is up to you. If you have contacts locally or overseas, another member may have a need to know your contacts. If a business deal is made, you can develop a relationship as introducer, liaison or agent. It’s really up to you. Maybe to have a more exciting retirement life. For a fee, a commission, you may be able to help another fellow member.

And of course, if you are looking at expanding your career or business, and needs some valuable contacts, our new business networking group, you too can join this group. Always be prepared and open about fees or commission. Don’t expect to develop a business for free.

Strictly for SHC members, male or female. No MLM, Network marketing permitted. This group is not for looking for a job.

If you accept the above parameters, and if you are prepared to share your valuable contacts, with another member, come join “SHC Whatsapp Business Networking”. Participants will also be invited to business networking gatherings, when organised.

Registration closes on 14 Nov 2017 sharp.
This activity will start on 15 Nov 2017 and close on 15 Dec 2017.

Simply send a whatsapp msg “Join SHC Business networking” to +65 9489 4360. Registration via Whatsapp only.

I am looking for one or two EOs for this activity.

Like to join me to Yangon between 8 and 12 Dec 2017

I am going to Yangon for a few days on business and holiday. If you like, you can join me.

I will fly from Singapore on the 8 Dec and then to Bkk. You book your own air tickets. Visa not required. I shall pick a hotel and let you know. You can use any airline and any hotel.

Likely, we have common meeting times, likely at breakfast, Lunch or dinner.

If you like, we can get to meet other long stay Singaporeans in Yangon. We may have to share costs to get them to come for lunch or dinner. You can talk business or you can talk sweet things.

Weather is dry mainly. And by Dec, it will be cool. If you have not been to Yangon before, this is one of last few countries open to the world. Come see before it becomes another HCMC or JB. There are beautiful famous temples, an exotic Chinatown with food you have not eaten since young, a booming city centre and a number of Singapore restaurants. I like street Myanmar food and it’s scented local tea.

Singaporeans staying there for years are many. Most lead their own life and business. The community is closed knit and many are well connected with other business.

Dates are not changeable. Plenty of large cockcroaches flying around in hotels and restaurants. Roads are dusty and rocky. Food, you may need to go to the rest room 5 mins after a drink. Bring your mama noodles. Credit cards are acceptable but not as common as you expect. USD is king. It’s Tiger beer is fantastic. Local beer, better still. There is entertainment but Yangon is not Bkk, Manila or Jakarta. Traffic jam is not unusual. And, do not expect your English to be understood everywhere.

So, if you are still interested, let me know. We meet there.

Join the SilverHairsClub Whatsapp “Business Goup”

Hi SilverHairs,

This SHC WhatsApp group is for members to share their ideas and plans for a small and easy business when they are about to retire or already in retirement. The aim is for business-minded members to decide and proceed, know who shares your thinking and maybe pick up some new ideas too.

SilverHairsClub has not had many business networking activities, mainly because starting or running a small business near retirement or during retirement is considered risky to our retirement savings. Many SilverHairs prefer to travel, gather in groups for chit chatting, go dancing, trying out food outlets and pursuing their interests and hobbies. And of course, to enjoy the fruits of many years of hardwork. Well, this WhatsApp group is not for you.

But in today’s Singapore, many retirees cannot do nothing. Taking a part time job is one way. The other is to do a small business, that is flexible and yet have enough time to pursue interests while bringjng in an income. And, for some, to avoid seeing your spouse throughout the day.

SHC WhatsApp chat groups are moderated and have rules. Please read this before joining.

1. Only TEXT chat. No URL, pictures, videos. No unrelated issues.
2. No greetings, good mornjngs, afternoons or goodnight. No invitations to events.
3. Business discussions on food, pets, hobbies, dancing, travel, properties, eldercare, plants, flowers, herbs, health & devices, direct selling, clothes, online trading and arts & crafts, trading, import exports and conceirge services are permitted. Services related to your previous work experiences are supported.

4. Anything related to politics, race, religion, sex and MLM or any forms of Network marketing are NOT permitted.

5. Each participant is limited to 3 text messages a day.

6. To join the WhatsApp Business group, please WhatsApp 9489-4360 and send “Join Business Group”. No email, SMS or phone calls. Deadline to join this group 20 Oct 2017.

7. This chatgroup ends 30 Nov 2017.

SilverHairsClub facebook – SHC group administrators

Dear members,

Not that I had lost my memories, but recently I vaguely remembered we had a SilverHairsClub facebook page.  It is callee SHC group.

Some years ago, i had asked Andrew Koh to initiate and administer the SilverHairsClub Facebook.  Together with Douglas Chan, both of them have brought our facebook page to what it is today.  In fact, I had almost forgotten about it until recently.

Andrew Koh and Douglas Chan both joined SHC in Jan 2007.  I am glad to have Andrew be the co-administrator for our Facebook.  Facebook has a different social media structure; It is open to eligible SHC members.  If you wish to join the Facebook, please register your interest here.  The administrators will pick up from here.
