A trip to Mumbai and Delhi Wed 1 Mar to Wed 8 Mar 2017

I am making a trip to India, Delhi and Mumbai during 1st half 1 to 8 Mar 2017. If you have not been to India, feel free to join me. The Taj Mahal, a wonder of intense love is a few hours from Delhi via car. Delhi is a modern city, with modern day traffic jams, huge monuments, underground shopping malls, and exotic India curries. This will be the 10 times, I will be going to the Taj Mahal, and we will stay over to marvel the Taj under the full moon.

Mumbai is the world’s Bollywood. Entertainment, discos, tall scrapers, beautiful sea views, and a population of more than 20 million people.

In India, you see a huge income divide. We can see large weddings, starting at 10pm and ending in the early hours of the morning. You will get to see slumps, thousands and thousands of poor people.

India will be the world’s next biggest production centre.

If you like to join this trip, it is likely we flying Sin/Mumbai/delhi/Sin. We can also do Sin/KL/Mumbai/Delhi/Sin. About 6 days.

Interested, just indicate your interest here.
Feel free to ask any Q.

THE FORSAKEN MUSICIAN

Today at about 7.30 pm I was doing a little shopping at a large  shopping mall in the eastern part of Singapore.

Outside the mall I was rather amused and intrigued  by a lone forgotten music maker. With due respect he did make some respectable music through his singing accompanied by his guitar playing. So he is quite talented. In fact I rather enjoyed his ensemble which pervaded in the evening air.

However the reality was he was  performing for donations. But sadly the scene was rather melancholy as the evening crowd hardly paid him a second look, many of whom were bypassing him and busy doing their own things. Did he really have to earn a few bucks this way? Had he been forgotten by his family or even the society. At this time of the day many folks would  be at home enjoying a dinner with family. Had he fallen through the cracks or it was his own choice.

An unusual experience taking trains in Singapore

I think this is a good intro to Terence Seah. And, I encourage all of you to share more about yourself. I shall start. The story is embarassing.

Two days ago, I went to Bukit Batok station to meet a friend. From Hougang, I took the NE line to Outram Park and then connect EW line to Jurong East and then take the NS line to Bukit Batok station. It was easy.

After my meeting, I went back to Bukit Batok station to go home. I got into the train and sat down. 10 mins later, I realised that I just past Kranji station. Aiyah, I decided to carry on the journey passing Yishun and AMK. I was bored and fell asleep.

When I worked up, I realised my train had stopped and there was no one else inside. I got out and found that I was at Marina South Pier. The station look like a beautiful modern “ghost town” station. I waited and waited and finally a train arrived.

I took this NS line, connect at Dhoby Ghaut and then via the NE line to Hougang.

This is where I start to think about myself, train stations, and what it feels to have crossed 60. My purple card hit an error at the gates, so I went to info counter. The officer looked at me and asked me where I came from, and I reply “Bukit Batok”. He also asked me what I was doing inside the trains all the while. I thought this was a “trick” or “trying to be funny” question, but I calmly replied “waiting for trains at Marina South Pier”.

Then, the officer smiled and said “No problem, I shall reset your card”. As he led me to the gate, he asked me, “Sir, have you taken train before?

I was confused there and then. Did I really spent 2 hours inside the train network? Still unsure.

EPIC 1000km KDF Millennium Ride 2017 – A Charity Event participation by Ivan Lim

Hi SHCians,

A charity ride a year helps keep the doctors away…

Hahahaaa! No lah! It’s just my coined saying only.

But seriously, for 2017, I am back to the EPIC 1000km Charity Ride.

Had a shoulder injury (non-cycling related) in late 2015 and had to drop out of the EPIC 2016 Charity Ride in January last year.

Like my previous efforts with the EPIC Cyclists, do note that for every SGD10/- of contributions you make through my profile for this EPIC 1000KM Charity Ride 2017, I will pledge SGD1/- from my own pocket, up to a maximum of SGD500/- …… just doing my $$$ part too and giving forward.

Hope to count on your support again! TQ in advance!

Lastly, wishing all SHCians, A Healthy, Happy and Prosperous Lunar New Year 2017!

The Rooster is coming; let’s come up with suggestions on how to celebrate the occasion

Traditionally, most of us would have now started to springclean our house.  Then, we start to think what we shall do for the family reunion dinner.  The next day, we would visit our parents, and we fight to figure out which relatives we like to visit.  We wait for invitations to visit colleaques and friends.  And, we anxiously wait for our children to come over with their children.  Not forgetting we enjoy exchanging oranges and give angpows.  We enjoy the goodies, the bak kwa and Green Spot drink.

As the year passed, some of our children feel it is better to spend this holiday to escape the tradition and chore of visiting relatives.  The cruise ships are full with bookings throughout this season, and family members explore going down under to Australia, a short trip to Bintam or regional Asean.  For many of us, Chinese New Year may now be different from what it was before when we were 16, 30 and 45.

At around this time, we think what event we can hold.  Usually, we land up with a sit-down round table lunch or dinner.  If the event meets our club’s objective, we can go for it.  I guess there are limitations at this time, and costs are likely to be high, and most people would have their plans.  But, we can still celebrate this Rooster year together.

Think of a gambling table, some satay or prata or even chicken curry.  Think a little further than Singapore. Maybe a country club function room. Maybe someone’s house or apartment.  How about dancing on a Sat afternoon?

If you have something in mind, share with us. Suggest a date, a place and cost.

Closing date for suggestions: Mon 23 Jan 2017.

Retiring in Singapore

I used to wonder about retiring in a foreign country. The idea was exciting when I was working and in my prime. However, now that I am semi retired, I feel that Sge is the best place to retire for Sge citizens.

CPF is making sure we have an adequate nest egg when we retire. For needy pioneers  the govt provides subsidies for this and that. And medical treatment – no one will be denied medical treatment for lack of money. This govt pledge is really heart-warming.

Our HDB flat is an asset that can be used to earn income should we need cash. Most of us have this asset. At present many elderly including retirees are financially independent and have strong purchasing power. As the country progresses with an aging population in mind, retirees can look forward to  a good future – a vibrant retirement life.

Terence is retiring in Thailand and Abel is retiring in Indonesia. The ‘push ‘ factor for both men is strong – both have families in the foreign countries.  For me and my circle of friends, the pasture is greener at home!

 – A personal opinion.

Merry Christmas to all SilverHairs

Dear fellow SHC members,

Last Christmas, I gave you my heart, But, the very next day, you gave it away.  This year, I shall give it to someone special.  Merry Christmas.  Indeed, time flies.  Soon,, 2016 will go and a new year begins, 2017.

Some of us were members of SHC 10 years ago.  Today, many of us have made new and close friends, some very special.  We hope you will bring more members to the Club, and grow the SilverHairsClub.

Share your thoughts of the season to fellow SilverHairs.

Retiring in Indonesia

Merry Christmas and a fair 2017 to all Silverhairs

As am conversant with Bahasa Indonesia having worked a short stint and On,Off a continual visitor since

19Seventy Eight plus having an Indon family now for nearly two years residing in Palembang after moving from Bandar Lampung(southernmost Sumatra), I am retiring abroad in 2019/20. But am seriously considering other subaurban locality as being aware of assertive awakening of Race & Religion beginning to increasingly appear in urban areas.

Like all Sporean spouses maintaining Asean wives, we are very fortunate that due to the continually strengthening of the Spore Dollar against other Asean currencies since 1999/2000, we do not need more than One Thousand Spore dollars for monthly upkeeping. Yours truly alternate monthly remittance of Six,Seven million Rupiah beginning this year from initial year Two Thousand of One million,one and a half million Rupiah, comparably with exchange in October’2000 @$213.00 per One million Rupiah to two weeks ago @$108.70 per One million Rupiah. In mid-November last year, the Rupiah dropped to its lowest @$102.60 per One million rupiah.

Retiring in Thailand

I have worked and lived in Thailand since 1999.  My wife is Thai and my son is Thailand.  Although I am a Singapore citizen, I enjoy the Thai culture, traditions, food and environment.  Thailand is a beautiful country, and I love travelling to many provinces and its cities and remote towns.
I am now 61 and am thinking of spending most of my balance days in Thailand.  When I started SilverHairsClub, the reasons then were to find like minded friends to live in Thailand too.  Now, 10 years later, I have the same dream.
There are many reasons to spend our retirement days in Singapore. But, more retirees are looking at spending time in nearby countries.  I can only focus on Thailand because this is where I had spent my last 20 years.
Thailand is a great place to spend our retirement days. You are invited to participate in discussions, and hopefully you can make your decision to stay in Thailand, just like I would in a few years time.

Feel free to join the discussion on Facebook or on this forum.

Now is the best time to enjoy cool Thai season and culture

Most of Northern and Central Thailand are seeing dry and cool, even cold seasons.  It’s the time of the year when Thais enjoy seeping beer among the rice fields while eating spicy basil minced pork with sticky rice and tomyam kampong chicken.

It’s time to make a journey to Chiangmai, Nongkhai and the border province between Laos, Myanmar and Thailand.  This is also the last rice harvesting crop of the year.  Almost everywhere, farmers cut Hom Mali rice, drying them before storing them for slow use throughout the year.  Rice is in abundance this year.

If you are planning to come to Thailand before 7 Jan 2017, give me a buzz.  We can have a few beers together.

9 Days Yunnan Tour (Sat 18 Feb to Sun 26 Feb)

 photo Yunnan-Tour55.jpg
We plan to purchase our own air tickets and engage an overseas tour operator to conduct the tour. It will be a private group.

We plan to travel together on China Eastern Airlines. The best time to visit Luoping for the Canola Flowers is from 20 Feb to early March. It will be a peak period. My main concern is in securing the air tickets for our preferred days and times.

If you have concern about the difficulty level, I have checked with the tour operator. She said most of the places you can proceed according to your physical fitness. For the Nine Dragons Waterfalls, you can reach the first waterfall in less than 2 km on flat ground and it is up to you whether to proceed to the 2nd and 3rd tier.

If you are interested, please write to shctour@outlook.com preferably by Fri 25 Nov. The early birds will get the worms, those register later might have to pay a higher rate for the air ticket. If you are interested, but need more time to consider, do let me know.

Pound had dropped since Brexit. Now, USD has climbed since Trump.

By now, many of us know that the MYR has fallen painfully for out Malaysian friends against the Sing dollar and the USD.

Further away, the Indian govt has just made 500 and 1000 rupee noted illegal tender.

Share what you think? And where will all this turmoil lead to?  Is this the Trump effect?

For members who have an interest in currency, impact of USD against the SGD, MYR and major currencies, feel free to join SHC WhatsApp discussion at 9489-4360.  Strictly on this topic only. This post and WhatsApp group will close 31 Jan 2017.

The Aftermath

There is so much public outcry against Trump beating HClinton that one gets the  impression most Americans voted for HClinton and beggars the question: Where did the tens of thousands of votes for Trump that brought him victory come from?

From the silent majority – Americans who do not benefit but in fact suffer from globalization. This large group of voters HC overlooked but not Trump. He appealed to them and got their votes!

Through the way he planned his campaign, Trump showed his talent – the winning unconventional ideas that conventional thinking people have no inkling of .

It will be very interesting to see what the president elect will do in his first 100 days in office next year.

Thank you for all your support and coming for the kopi chat this afternoon.  We had an enjoyable time drinking coffee, fellowshipping, chatting and playing Rummikub…

Got a surprise. I got myself admitted into the hospital

Some of you have called me, i shall share a fun story with you.

I went to Hougang polyclinic yesterday morning for a routine blood test. Staff was efficient and I got out within 1 hour.  Have to wait one week to follow up with doc for results. Sometime in the afternoon, I received many calls from a number I was unfamiliar.  Late yesterday, I returned the call, and it was from the critical results doc. She asked me to repeat my blood test at any A&E as my potassium level was critically high at 6.5.

So, I went to TTSH, my favourite hotel.  Even though I did not make an appointment with TTSH, the hospital already knew of my coming. I just showed them the hospital SMS, to make sure it is me.

Dracula took some blood and I was put on an ECG. To wait for the results, the nurse put me on a trolley and wheeled me to a waiting room.  An hour late, the doc explained that my potassium was still high and need to repeat. Test repeated and an hour later, it was confirmed potassium at 6.5.

The doc welcome me to stay at TTSH hotel for the night for further review.  Two giant tubes of medication injected into my blood stream. Gosh, it was painful, size of a large colgate toothpaste.

And the staff wheeled me to my room. Two hours later, I was sweaty and faintish. I pressed the button and my blood test now showed sugar level at 2.5. The hospital gave me some biscuits and my black coffee opium. Plus a cup of glucose water to bring up the sugar level which went back to normal at 6.5.

Had a good sleep, and now I have bread and coffee for breakfast.  Morning doc saw me and just told me I can stay one or two nights more at a discount. Good value, I couldn’t say no.

I shall update u on this post. My WhatsApp is 9489-4360.  No need to visit me, as technology is just as good.  I welcome you to communicate with me on this post.

Have a nice Sunday.

Monthly walk: SOUTHERN WATERFRONT

Date : 12th November 2016, Saturday

Time : 4.30pm SHARP

Duration: approx 2hours

Meeting Place: Labrador MRT Station(CC27) – Take escalator up to ground level.
(no facilities during walk, till probably 1.5hrs later).

ECs: Veronica Wong with Henry See.
Note: Henry See, one of our regular walkers, suggest to do this route, so he will
assist to co-lead.

It was 3 years ago that we had transversed along the coastline on a man-made
boardwalk. The creek is a natural oasis of mangrove, mudflats, lush and green foliage.

Linger for a moment along the coastal front, be soothed, be lulled by
the wonders of nature and revel in this scenic view of vast sea and greenery.
At the bay feast your eyes on a cluster of yachts and perhaps at sundown,
the beautiful sunset!

Note:
1) For your own safety, come in comfortable footwear, no slippers/sandals.
2) Protect oneself with sun screen, sunglasses, caps, mosquito repellant
3) Bring a disposable raincoat (though we pray for good weather)

We shall end our walk at HarbourFront.
