Nok, my wife and the person behind the workings of Silverhairsclub

Nok is the name of my wife. She is Thai. When SilverHairsClub started in 2005, she was 39, and therefore could not join as a member. She knew I was always pursuing my interest in bringing Singaporeans seniors over 45 together. And, she was very supportive in Silverhairsclub because she knew someday all of us will grow old and will need the support of one another. She engages in many ideas to help achieve our club objective. She joins us on Thai trips to show us the sights of Thailand . Some of you have met her.

During the last 8 years, when she was in Perth while my son studies to be a commercial pilot, she took the option to volunteer to work in an age-care home. She hope to contribute her experience and knowledge serving the Australian aged community, and at a later date to the Silverhairsclub community when she returned to Thailand 2 years ago.

My wife suffers from colon cancer some 3 years ago. She fought cancer and underwent various rounds of chemotherapy and surgery of abnormen. She suffered tremendous fatique and pain, every few hours a day. Last week, I and my son spoke with her oncologist, and the recommendation was increased morphine dosage and sleeping drugs. The doc told her to expect last days.

We are now back at her hometown in Korat, spending time to keep her company.

I know many of you question why I organise activities and fail to turn up last minute. I hope you understand.

As of now, I only wish to spend time with my wife. Meantime, please continue to take care of your health.

From there on we follow the PCN that borders the fringes of Lower Seletar Reservoir and walk towards an underpass below Lentor Avenue, crosses it and stroll along a canal till we reach Springleaf Nature Park.
For this walk, we will enjoy much greenery and waterways in an unspoilt natural environment. If we are lucky enough we may even sight an eagle, a blue tail bee eater or a raptor amidst the tranquility of the surrounding tall trees.
The Walk ends at the junction of Sembawang/Mandai Road. Located nearby are nice eateries for our dinner & refreshments. From there, buses to many convenient destinations are easily available .

Wear comfortable footwear, no slippers/sandals.

Gardens By The Bay – Free 2nd Tuesday for Merdeka & Pioneers

A saying “

On your journey, don’t forget to smell the flowers. Take time out to notice that you’re alive. You can only live in one day.

Ray Fearon

So I am just doing that on this 2nd Tuesday when the Flower Dome is free for all Seniors.

Meeting Time and Place : Outside Marina Bay Exit towards the Gardens by the Bay (outside the 711 shop). Grace of 5 mins, else meet at the Dome.

Old coins and stamps

I recently was given bagful of old coins and stamp by a dear old friend who wanted to bless me. It could be a good deed I have sow before. What am I to do with it without knowing their value, am I inheriting a good fortune?
Some of you may be wondering why Dan has gone into hiding, was it bad things I have done, you are not far from it. Here I am seeking redemption.
Coming to the point I am looking for member to come together to share thought on old valuable coins and stamps. Do indicate your interest here. If there is sufficient pax I will arrange to meet up.

Dan Huang.

SHC community in postal codes 60, 61, 62, 63 and 64. 1st 2 digits of 6-digit postal codes

IMM Spore

Come join SHC Jurong, Tuas group

Since SilverHairsClub was first established in 2005, all our activities and venues were centered within the CBD and East Singapore regions.

Although our bus and MRT network have made it easy to meet, there has been a reluctance from members leaving in the West and North to join activities because of distance. Very often, it can take one hour to travel between East and West Singapore, more so if activities are held on weekdays for working members.

We are looking at ways to make it easy for West Singapore members to meet in smaller groups. We reviewed our postal code system, and see that using the 1st 2 digits of our 6-digits as the community group can help members get together more frequently and conveniently.

We shall start with postal codes 1st 2 digits 60, 61, 62, 63 and 64. Mainly in Jurong and Tuas.

If you are living in these postal codes, as per your NRIC, and would like to join this community, please whatsapp text ‘zone 60-64’ to 9489-4360. The Club hopes that this project will help members meet new and more Silverhairs friends.

SHC Aquarium fish hobby

Feel young, feel refreshing, feel good

I guess some of us do not have the time to keep aquarium fishes when we were younger. Maybe because we are busy working or we have not develop the interest.

Today, some of us have the time. We may have grand children to entertain. We may start with a bowl, buy some guppies or some goldfishes. Only to see the lively fishies swimming around the new acquarium and bringjng a whole new world infront of us. A great way to enjoy ageing.

Then, we realise we have to get fish food, what to do when they swim upside down, refuse to talk with us, or refuse to make love and create babies. Sometimes, they grow too big and what do we do with them?

For some of us, we not happy with just guppies. We want to see sword fishes, fighting Siam fishes, Koi’s and $500 Red heads.

We adventure into JB to look for exotic aquarium fishes, find cheaper feed, pumps and filters. And we find friends to go with.

I would like to start a SHC Aquarium fish hobby group for members who have at least one fish in their homes or who have kept an aquarium before, and like to revive this hobby.

This hobby will start as a WhatsApp group for numbers to communicate. Strictly no URLs, no videos, audios, and copy and paste. ONE fish or acquarium accessory picture a day is allowed.

Plse WhatsApp text 9489- 4360 to participate. Strictly SHC members only. Registration closes 25 Oct 019 and participation starts 26 Oct 2019.

* SilverhairsClub will help develop hobbies for members from time to time. Do let your group leader GL know or any senior SHC member know. They will help you get registered too.

Ageing together in JB

We will start as a Whatsapp group, strictly no URL links, copy and paste, videos and pictures. Club rules apply.

Here, the platform would provide participants the opportunity to find other fellow members with similar interests eg:

1. Pooling of maid or domestic help services eg keeping the place tidy and clean and cooking.

2. Sharing of transport or cars, so as to keep mobile.

3. Sharing cost of place of stay, a house or a condo. Rental or purchase.

4. Sharing of day to day marketing and household costs.

5. Plan outdoor trips, to keep in touch with the outside world.

6. Discussion on hospital, doctors, medical services, clinics, nursing, maids and ambulance availability and costs.

7. Rooming needs eg double, single and facilities.

8. How to keep living costs down in JB while ageing together as a group?

9. What the group can do to keep healthy and active?

10. How to help and support one another, in cases of disabilities, difficulty in movement and need to go for medical treatment?

11. Malaysia – my second home as a retirement visa.

If you like to join and meet fellow members on the above topics, contact us at +65 9489 4360.

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.

SHC monthly gathering Fri 13 Sep 2019 mid Autumn festival

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.

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.

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.

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.
