SHC started in October 2005.  This month is our 13th-anniversary.  We will be celebrating this occasion with members during the October monthly gathering.

This CLAYPOT sign was my first sight when we went to 313@Somerset to have a check.  The previous stall is under renovation.  The seating is still the same.  If you are lost in finding the place, please look for this stall.

The Claypot corner is quiet with a good ambience. We had a monthly gathering here before and it serves our need well. The food court has a variety of food

The SHC Oct monthly gathering is scheduled as follows:

Date:     Fri 19 Oct 2018

Time:    5pm – 8pm

Venue:  313@Somerset

             Food Republic Level 5

SHC monthly gathering is a good opportunity for old as well as new members to meet, greet, socialize and encourage everyone to participate in new ideas and share their interests.  This month, we would like to thank our two members, Caroline Gee and Doreen Cady,  who are helpful to volunteer to bake the delicious cakes for us and to play surprise games.

Do not miss this occasion!

Duration: approx 3.5hrs
Meeting place : Labrador MRT, Circle Line “CC27”, Exit A.
EC: ChristinA

IF no rain the day before and esp on day itself, will include the Forest trail ????

It has been a couple of years since we scale up our country’s only Mount!
Time for a revisit to one of SG’s oldest park.

With nimble feet you shall rise up the Mount, to join tourist to behold the
panoramic view of our skyline, the southern part of SG and the southern
islands.
These views shall take your breath away, not so much the climb itself!

It is still very popular with tourist as there are a host of things to enjoy besides
the secondary rain forest that covers this mount.

Gentle Reminder:
1) Always wear comfortable shoes; light, loose clothing; bring a bottle of water
to stay hydrated; poncho/umbrella.
2) Optional items: cap, sun block, camera/binoculars, insect repellent.
3) Bring only the necessities, light is good.

Let’s pray for a clear day for us to enjoy stunning views from the peak!

UKELELE JAMMING, ANYONE?

 

 

SORRY, REGISTRATION CLOSED AS WE HAVE FULL HOUSE.  THANK YOU.

Actually it’s an excuse to invite you for Tea at my house (near Chinese Garden mrt station) and we’ll be jamming with our ukelele instead of mahjong playing.   Ukelele is also a good brain exercise and not only that, it bonds players together with good teamwork while enjoying the music and singalong.   Practice makes perfect and we’ll be better ukelele players soon and be able to play anywhere at future SHC gatherings.

You will also be guinea pigs for my Tea spread and anything new that I’ll be trying.

This is not a ukelele class  – basically it’s to gather beginners and intermediate players together but we welcome expert players too!

I intend to have it on the first Saturday of the month at 3.00 pm.

If you’re game for this please sign up below and I’ll ask Terence for help to set up a groupchat for us.

Thank you.

Reflections

So last year, August, I had surgery done to remove a huge soft tissue tumour from my right thigh. My Dr said it must have been growing for years. I only realize there was a lump when i went for an MRI as it was hurting so bad. Thank goodness it was benign.

I was diagnosed with ostheoarthritis 15 years ago but it was under control but the pain eventually came back. I went for chiropractic treatment but it didnt help. Then a good friend introduced me to dancing then the pain was gone. No kidding. The pain came back only after the soft tissue tumour op. One muscle was removed and then there was only one left. My poor right hip had to work extra hard.
So last week, I had total hip replacement (THR) on my right. Down time 6 to 8 weeks and full recovery time prob 6 months to 12 months, depending on individuals age n strength. So no dancing for time being. Wondering why i MIA? now you know.

I was feeling depressed during those months of pains. Just wanted to have dinner, shower and sleep after work.
I will let you know after 6 months if it was worth going under the knife.

I am not seeking sympathy. Just wanted to share my experience. And feel free to ask me if anyone has similar problem and would like to know more about the procedure.
Lastly, i have not forgotten the baking classes i wanted to conduct. Will set up the dates once i am fully recovered.

In the meantime, take care and enjoy life to the fullest.
Best regards
Caroline aka Carly

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.
