SHC monthly gathering Fri 13 Sep 2019 mid Autumn festival

Featured

Hi SilverHairsClub members,

For many of us, some 30-40 years ago, many of us were young adults. Some of us were at a romantic stage of our lives.

Although not a public holiday, we know when the moon cake festival is here. We wait for the full moon to bloom at its brightest. Our parents taught us not to point out 1st index finger at the moon. And we get to enjoy moon cakes.

Perhaps you have your version of how the moon cake festival existed. But definitely the same mid autumn festival is a romantic day each year. Now that we are in our fifties, sixties and seventies, we can still be romantic, in love with memories of our younger days.

This year, we shall again celebrate the moon cakes cum mid Autumn festival.

Here’s the planning details.

* Date: Fri 13 Sep 2019

* Time: 1700 -1830 hr at Ground floor,  1830 to 2230 hr at roof top.

* Venue: Jayleen 1918 hotel (roof top),

42 Carpenter St, Singapore 059921. Nearest MRT: Clarke Quay. Cross the overhead bridge to Carpenter street.  Car Park $1.50 per hr, after 5pm.

* Music: Chinese evergreen, musician and keyboard accompanied.

* F&B: Buffet dinner.

* Dress: Appropriate, light and breezy.

* Cost: $28 per pax (early bird paid before 31 Aug 2019.  $30 after 31 Aug 2019).
Non- member price $35 per pax. As this is an Anniversary celebration, we shall make an exception: extend payment to be made by 05Sep for S$28/per pax for members; after 05Sep will be S$30, no further extension. Payment to a/c Chris Chan POSB Savings Acct 542-10756-1.
* Liquor: You may bring your own wine, beer or whisky if you like. No corkage charge.

* Dress: to suit the festival.

Be a part of the thinking and planning process. I look forward to your ideas and suggestions.

And if you like to join this committee, please WhatsApp text me.

Monthly walk: Kallang River-Bishan-AMK Park

Dear All,

Walk this afternoon: we will go ahead… see you, folks!

14Sep: checked Haze psi down to 82. Some asked us not to cancel the

walk {smile, smile}

We shall continue to monitor the psi. Only if it is Above 100, will cancel

the walk… kindly check updates or WhatsApps me.

————-

The Haze hots up … psi this morning is from 94 to 96!

Tomorrow by 12noon, if it hits 100!

September’s Walk will be cancelled.

Date: Saturday, 14th Sep 2019

Time: 4.15pm sharp (Be punctual, please)

Duration: approx 3 hrs / approx 6km – easy terrain

Meeting place : Potong Pasir MRT, NorthEast Line “NE10” Exit C (outside Old Chang Kee)

EC: Azhari C

Let’s stroll upstream along the river banks to our destination!
We had visited this park a couple of times some years back and had seen portions being boarded up for major refurbishments.

An initiative by PUB was launched in 2006 to transform our waterways into beautiful streams with natural materials, waterscapes; creating spaces for the community to enjoy and increase biodiversity.

Bishan-AMK park was one of the flagship projects under this transformation programme between PUB and NParks.

The park which is located in urban central Singapore was transformed from a concrete canal to having a natural “Kallang River” flowing into and through the park, an immense project never done before.

The park now with lush greenery, grassy lawns, playgrounds, ponds, are all ideal for family picnics and gatherings; fitness enthusiasts cycle or pant along well-maintained tracks, or sit by the banks to see water ripples swirling through natural rocks, exceedingly soothing and therapeutic.

The walk leaving us tired and hungry will culminate with dinner at Teck Ghee Court Food Cente.
From here are buses available to either Bishan or AMK MRT.

Note:
There are not many or few shelters, good to have your brollies.
Water to hydrate on a hot day.
Need energy, bring along a snack.
To breeze along, lighten your load.

Walk Team: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari Cuttilan, Linda Chua and ChristinA Chan.

Those coming, register ASAP!

Let’s rethink SHC succession

This year, we celebrate our 15th Anniversary. SilverHairsClub has been established since 2005, and we have been quietly successful through a network of Event Organisers EOs, Event Coordinators and members support who share our culture and traditions.

It’s about time we look again at succession and a new team to take the club forward. At 50, I founded the Club. Next year, I shall be 65, and will get to collect the 1st payment from my CPF. I am running out of ideas. And in reality, I don’t have so much time to spare for the club, as I intend to continue work till I die. On average, I spend about 3 days a mth in Singapore.

Every organisation needs continued succession and we need to review this from time to time.

I am now ready to hand over the club to someone or a team to take over and develop further the SilverHairsClub. My eyes will be focused on someone with SilverHairs at heart. Let’s reopen the discussion.

Our heart, our home, our Singapore – Happy National Day

Dear fellow SilverHairsClub members,

All of us have seen many National Days. We participate in parades, we contribute to our nation and build Singapore to what it is today. We watch NDP celebrations on TV, at the Padang and National Stadium. We are all proud of Singapore.

On behalf of SHC, on this grand occasion, let’s wish our ourselves and our country, “Happy National Day”.

Terence Seah

Sometimes we have unwanted stuff in our homes, and we want to give it away or sell it off

If you have some items close to your heart which you have kept for many years, but have now found the same items taking up space and looking pretty in a corner or your storeroom, you may like to give them away or sell them off.

Perhaps, some members may like these items. Consider inviting our members to come over at a specific date and time, we can have a look and perhaps take them away or buy them from you.

Simply let me know, a date/time, and we can open the event to members. You can also write a new post to inform the club.

Feel free. This is a great way to know other members, besides keeping your home light and breezy.

This is a very popular route for an easy evening walk suggested by our walkist Anna Seet. The walk takes us along a scenic coastal part of Punggol and a manicured waterway. For those of you who have not been there, it’s an interesting and memorable experience. For others it is always refreshing to see an updated progressive Punggol, and we continue to marvel at how fast the place has evolved and changed.
We commence our walk from Punggol Mrt , walk through Waterway Point towards the made Canal waterway that links two rivers, Ponggol River and Serangoon River. From the Canal we proceed westwards to the Punggol River, strolling along its riverside until we reach Punggol Marina Boatel . Continuing, we trace the northern coastal stretch , walking along a park connector until Coney Island. Nearby there we branch off and walk along another canal heading towards Oasis LRT where we end our walk. Refreshment and/or dinner at a nearby coffee shop awaits you.

Wear comfortable footwear, no slippers/sandals.
Protect oneself with sun screen, sunglasses, caps. And bring along an Umbrella

The Walk Team: ChristinA Chan, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Linda Chua ,Azhari Cuttilan and Charles Wee.

This is an EC activity . You can bring your adult friends who are 45 and above.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE AND SHC

We have the privilege to grow up in an analog age, live our adulthood in the digital age, And now, artificial intelligence creeps in our golden years and start to take control.

Dear All

I am featured in this programme so if you have time, do tune in to watch the show. My apologies for the last minute notice as I was not too sure if I should share. Then I think, why not? If you missed it, you can catch it on toggle.sg. Btw, my segment is after the first skit by celebrities.

I may not look stunning or gorgeous, but I do feel good doing this show and my family and I enjoyed this experience very much.

Happy viewing and have a great weekend!

Cheers

Carly

Monthly Walk : A Rustic Park Experience

Date: Saturday, 8 June 2019

Time: 4.15pm sharp

Meeting Place : Use Exit C from Punggol Mrt Station to Punggol Bus Interchange (Berth 5 Bus Service 84)

Duration: approx 2.5hrs

ECs: Veronica Wong & Mary Tan

Discover the rustic charms of Coney Island or Pulau Serangoon, home to a wide variety of habitats, including coastal forests, grasslands, mangroves, and casuarina woodlands. In keeping with the ideal of environmental sustainability, the signs, seats and even the boardwalk on the island are made from Casuarina timber from uprooted trees. Coney Island Park still feels like a world away from urbanity.

We will walk along the Promenades paved areas to enjoy the views of passing ships and Johor’s shoreline. Take photo at the famous Coney Island gate. Stroll along the earth paths, exploring the forest and mangrove habitats. Opportunities to observe and try spotting wildlife or listen to the chirping of birds. If you encounter any animals, keep a safe distance from them, do avoid approaching them. Do not feed the monkeys, or hold any plastic bag and water bottle when visiting the park. We move on to the beach areas which provide a nice seaside break after sweating out on walking.

Walk will end back at the Western Entrance. For those who wish to have dinner, there are eateries at the nearby Punggol Settlement.

Tips to prepare for a safe and enjoyable walk ………………..
Dress comfortably, advisable to wear long pants and covered walking shoes; bring drinking water to stay hydrated; wear a hat, put on sunglasses and apply sunscreen to shield yourself from the sun; apply insect repellent if you are prone to insect bites; bring umbrella or raincoat.

Walk Team: ChristinA Chan, Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari Cuttilan and Linda Chua

Retirement evaluation trip to Khao Yai 18-21 Jul 2019

Khao Yai, known globally as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is about 2 hours north east of Bangkok.

I am organising a trip to Khao Yai in July 2019. For this trip, I have asked Bernard, a Singaporean, who has retired and settled down in the Khao Yai area with his Thai wife Nicky. The couple owns a fresh corn-on-the-cob business. They enjoy farming, tissue culture and agriculture related activities. Bernard enjoys his retirement at Khao Yai. This is an opportunity to hear from a fellow Singaporean.

Khao Yai is known for it’s greenery, fruits, grapes, wineries, mountains, fresh air, open space, cows, hiking tracks, relaxing country side environment and resorts.

The trip will start from Donmuang or Suvarnabhumi airports and will depart to Khao Yai, approx 2 hours in 9 seater vans. The return leg will be to the same airport. Note: this is raining season and a good time to enjoy being wet.

The trip objective is to evaluate Khao Yai on short term retirement, while for others, a few days of fresh air and friendly company. Both Bernard and Nicky will share with us what life is like at Khao Yai, what it costs to stay here and what activities we can pick up in the part of Thailand.

If you are looking at stay up to 1 year in Thailand, come join the trip.

Interested, please sign your name here. You may withdraw if the final dates are not suitable. Group limited to 30 pax.

    Moving on with Paperclips

    Hi Paperclips members,

    It has always been my hope that Silverhairs members are able to find like-minded friends. Since the club started in 2005, our activities are generally participated by about 80% females and 20% males. However the Club itself has registered about 60% females and 40% males. The question has always been why the inbalance.

    As we get older, especially after leaving full time work, our colleagues carry on their lives. Nowadays, many senior club members find that our children are having their own family life. And for some, they leave the nest home. For others, our spouses leave us naturally, either through a divorce or to another world.

    At some time, we are all left alone, with an empty apartment, no one to have lunch and dinner with. We have time to travel, but we are unable to find someone with common interest. Obviously, no one to chat, go out with, hold hands together, go to a cinema together or travel to nearby Penang together.

    Very often, we then try to keep busy. Spend time with grandchildren. Watch Korean movie or roam Changi Jewel alone. Better still, some find our local kopitiam a place where we can debate the budget or find out more about CPF life from neighbours.

    I had hope that SilverHairsClub will be a platform for members to find new friends. Today, I read an article in Channel News Asea on dating apps. I guess the article suits the 25-35 age group. But I believe the dating apps suits single SilverHairsClub members. The Paperclips program is for singles only. Plse read the article below.

    I plan to be in Spore in May, and am thinking of having the next monthly gathering with the topic “Dating for SilverHairs”.

    https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/big-read-short-finding-love-age-apps

    For members planning to join the mthly gathering, the date will likely be 13-18 May 2019.

    If you like to speak on this topic, please contact me at 9489-4360.

    WWII trails, Pt 1 & 2

    Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019

    Time: 09.30AM SHARP!!     

    Do plan to be on time, if not earlier . Strictly NO waiting for latecomer! :D

    Duration: approx 3 to 4hrs (there’s no turning back)

    Meeting place (**) : Seah Im Food Centre.
    Nearest MRT – HarbourFront, NE1 / CC29; Exit B.

    SeahIm FC: One end are Malay stalls; the other end are Chinese.
    Use the toilet facilities (located nearer the Malay stalls) as the next two(2) hours might not have this facility.

    This is not a walk in the park ….. this is an Adventure you may not want
    to miss!

    Let’s get closer to nature.. C’mon on, strap on a good pair of hiking shoes!

    We will trek through some overgrowth, hike Uphill, to visit site(s) that once
    even had disappeared from the maps of Singapore for more than 60years;
    was rediscovered, yet hidden.

    Note:
    1st leg of this walk — depends much on the weather.
    Should there be heavy rain on Friday, we might need to “change” route
    as it might be too slippery to hike uphill & down.

    IF above happens then will walk only the 2nd leg…. m still thinking :)

    To avoid confusion, meeting place (**) shall remain unchanged.
    IF you are not sure of the location of the meeting place, ASK early.

    Strongly recommend:

    1. wear long pants, covered shoes with ankle socks unless you wish to
      get bites.
    2. Hiking poles — it helps as there ain’t railings or anything to hold
    3. Brollies, caps and bottle of water to stay hydrated.

    As we might end at 2pm, I will provide a small snack.

    Walk Team: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari
    Cuttilan, Linda Chua and ChristinA Chan…. signing off!

    Kindly put your name down soonest! Thank you!
