Personal accident insurance vs Travel insurance

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.

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.

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.

Certificate in Tours & Travel Services For Tour Leader

Terence, this is not advertisement but a SkillsFuture Credits for those retired or semi-retired or like me, thinking of retiring and don’t want to be idling around and hope to try our hands on new venture.  After all, most members are into travelling so this could be an interesting subject to learn too…

Dear Members,
Rosalind Lee had actually shared this in SHC FB Page and felt that it would be also good to share this info here.

The above is 2 days and best still, Eligible for SkillsFuture Credits.  From the poster given, this seems to be an interesting course for some of us to attend.  Understood that there will be session on 27-28 Sept and subsequently 7-8 Oct and 14-15 Oct respectively.

I wish to attend this too but not on weekends as I have other family commitments to attend.  Any others to join too?  All current dates given above, I am unable to attend.

All details are listed in the posted attached.

Thank you and cheers… Dolly

Donating of Kindergarten Story Book

Dear all SHC members,
Presently, I have some 180 copies of this story book, The Tooth Fairy, which I intend to donate to recommended kindergartens/child care centers.

I’m sure this book, which is well illustrated and written in simple English with a moral that comes with each story, will bring joy to children during story time. This book is suitable for children of 1.5 – 6 years old.

The reason for making this small donation is a show of my way in giving back to society, also supporting the Govt’s current national campaign, Read More Physical Books, which is aimed primarily at preschoolers. Hopefully, this promotion will also encourage more mothers to read regularly of bedtime stories to their children thus inculcating good reading habits from young.

If any SHC members who may know of certain needy kindergartens/children learning centers, interested in receiving this donation which is limited to 10 copies per recipient, please give me full kindergarten/center’s name, contact details including email address with which I can use to communicate with them directly. I fully respect the present PAPD Act. Do a good deed and be blessed.

Finally, I’m contactable on frankaw@gmail.com.

Best regards

Frank

“One night in Bangkok” date not firmed

We shall be starting our planning for “One night in Bangkok” soon. The date, the venue and the program are still at liquid stage, but I think we may not have many moons to wait.

I am hoping to coincide the date with a Thai traditional culture and date. And if this is the case, the event will be held before this year end. Obviously, we must have thai food and maybe Singha or Chang beer to go along.

We need not structure the event as a dinner & dance, so the committee will have to crack this out.

To start, if you like to join the committee, plse whatsapp +65 9489 4360. Suggestions and comments are invited on this Post.

Walk is ON!  Was told it is SUNNY at Bukit Timah!

Time : 4.00pm SHARP (only 5mins waiting time)

Duration: approx. 2.5hours.

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

NOTE: in case of inclement weather — walk shall be cancelled.
Notification will be here in this post on Saturday morning.

 

Join us to enjoy an afternoon at “one of the most beautiful nature spots in Singapore.”

We will trek through a lesser known trail.
The early part of this forest trail is easy; remember to look around to enjoy the rich
flora and fauna in the forest.
Then, we will ascend to the TOP for a more scenic view!

Do remain quiet     😀    as you may spot an occasional wildlife.

Toilet facilities: available only at entrance/Visitor’s centre.

Do wear COVERED, comfortable walking shoes.
Bring bottle of water to keep hydrated, caps, umbrellas, insect repellant and cameras.

What should you do when approached by monkeys?
When approached by the monkeys, you should look down and walk at least 1.5 metres away from them. Do not look into their eyes or bare your teeth as these are signs of aggression and challenge.
Keep food and snacks in haversacks and not in plastic bags. Do NOT eat/drink in the presence of monkeys.

from the Walk Team: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Alice Seah, Azhari Cuttilan, Linda Chua and I, ChristinA Chan.

For this trail, only max 29pax. Look forward to your early registration!    😀   😀

Fairy Godmother is still alive

Hi fellow members,

Fairy Godmother is still very much alive. She is now 72, walks around with a walking stick, a bit slow in thinking and very often, sitting and resting under the mango tree. She still dangles her magic wand; but due to weak batteries, the wand seldom works well. She is now thinking of using an Artificial Intelligence Robot to help her thinking and sometimes makes decisions on a behalf.

I am sure some of you have read about a security robot that can patrol large area 24 hours a day, taking over the duties of securities guards and can smell fires, detect faces and can even call an ambulance. But sadly, about two months ago, the robot ran too fast, hit the edge of a water fountain and fell into a pool of water. Her circuitary was wet and she died.

Well fairy godmother is alive. She is still good at moderating quarrels especially among boys and girls. Unfortunately, she can’t talk, so she just waives her wand. Some some comments and posts just disappear at a “Zap”. If batteries are not well charged, sometimes nothing happens.

Fairy Godmother wants to have a smooth and quiet retirement life. But we all know boys and girls do quarrel from time to time, usually because of a misunderstanding. Fairy Godmother is happy to see the boys and girls happy, running here and there and enjoying the good lives on Singapore island.

Fairy Godmother forgets names easily. She is not perfect. If anyone likes to be a trainee God Mother, do let me know. Meantime, she is hoping that more of the boys and girls who are over 45 can help to keep the peace with SilverHairsClub.

Direct Selling : Kumquat Marmalade

I brought my home-made kumquat marmalade to sell for the first time in SHC 2010 flea mart. Thanks to many of you, the marmalade sold briskly. This year, I saw a bumper crop and so decided to sell the kkq marmalade once again.

FYI., the kumquat marmalade is natural, with no preservatives or artificial colouring added.It is hygienically produced and packed into tubs of about 380 gms. On wide request, the recipe has been altered to reduced the sugar content. However, It still tasted great. The price remained at $5 per tub.

If you wished to make an order, pls write to me on whatsapp or on this post. I planned to make the first delivery on 23 Aug ’17 at Gabriella’s coffee chat (see refer to her post on this subject). Thank you Gabriella for kindly consenting to this. The second delivery (for o/s orders, if any) would be at the monthly meeting but this is not finalised yet. Personal collection / delivery will have to be discussed one-on-one separately.

Thank you
Lee Hou Chong

Chat about “Genki-Kaki” over coffee

Lien Foundation arranged for 2 seniors to tour Japan to discover lessons in senior living. Their observations are posted on its website. Just this weekend, BizTimes printed an article “A good Death’ wherein there is a section about “Advanced Care Plan”.

This is the link for Genki Kai.

http://www.genkikaki.com/articles

Would any member like to meet over a cuppa of Starbucks coffee and chat about these 2 issues.

My proposal is to meet for the first time on 14 Aug 2017,Monday morning at around 10:30 at the SBUX coffee store at either HarhourView or ViVoCity. We shall see if a group of like-minded members can be formed to keep ourselves abreast of developments in this field. Of course, we can chat about other issues after the main topic has been covered.

All the best and stay healthy.
Cheers!
