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.

Flashback Words Retro Tile Clock Flipping Turn Back Time    memory1

Gatherings are a great way to make friends. We chat with one another, and sometimes we find our old schoolmates, members who had worked in similar industries and someone whom we may be interested to know further.

fun3    I like to introduce another way for all members to meet new and more friends. Each month, we will start a new Post titled “Share with us your last 30 years”. Under this Post, all members can share what you have been doing in the last 30 years. Approx 5-10 paragraphs. You can share your working history, your hobbies, your loves, your overseas postings, your school, college and university life, your promotions, etc.

I am sure other members may be able or want to link up with you.

Political, sexual, religious, racial and MLM content may be moderated.

Let start this activity with a posting for Mar 2015.

MEMBER INTRODUCTION-Peter Sng Koon Seng

I’ll be 70  on the 1st January 2014 and I’m a grandfather of 10. I was a school teacher for 20 years till age 40.

I’ve been a professional ukulele trainer since 2009. I conduct ukulele course in Churches, Golf Clubs, Community Clubs, Condos and at my Home-studio.I have taught more than 1000 students. I occasionally strum and have sing-along sessions at my home.

Making short trips to neighbouring countries whenever I have time is also  my interest.

MEMBER’S INTRODUCTION-AUDREY

I am Audrey, a Singaporean who has migrated to Melbourne in 2011. My husband and I own an Australian cattle and hay farm. We live in a cottage surrounded by the farm. Our neighbours have horses and sheep farms. All these farms are located in a serene, spacious and peaceful area. Farming in Australia is high-tech using tractors and machineries. Not many tasks are carried manually.

I enjoy my own organic vegetable gardens which I use to ‘experiment gardening vegetables and herbs’ as my new hobby.

Should you visit Melbourne and would like to have a off-the -track tour itinerary, I can organise the land package, accommodation and catering.

JayBee Koh – Introduction

Hi,
I’m Jaybee. 52 years young and serving in the RSAF.

I’m married to Lily Zhang and have 4 grown up children. My hobbies include soccer, golf and
cycling. Due to a recent spine injury, I can no longer play soccer or golf,
hence spend most of my leisure time cycling.

I also cycle to work to keep fit, still need to take IPPT : ( 

who am I ??

Dear Members

By now most of you might have received and read email from Terence ref "February News Update".
I just want to make a quick clarification here i.e. the original article was without name hence I asked you to guess ‘who am I’ but then the "Admin" added my name in it, hence there’s no need to guess anymore isn’t it?

But since I mentioned about BIGGER prize and several members have responded with my photo, I therefore would like to say "ok, the prize will still be given to those who have my photo" (but no prize for guessing who am I hee hee).

you may  download the pic here or send it to frispjt@yahoo.com.
Closing date: 8 Feb 2013 midnight
Prize will be given on 17 Feb at the Lohei gathering (so make sure you are there!)

For those who wrote to me via "admin", I will respond to you before CNY ok? (frankly I’m quite glad  many ‘non active’ members responding to the email. it’s worth the effort and time I put in)
