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.

A day in Batam, followed by a dinner & dance, and returning the next day, Jun 2018

SilverHairsClub is planning to have a day trip to Batam, followed by an event D&D at a Batam venue, and returning to Singapore the next day.

The event is likely to be on a Sat/Sun, in June 2018. A few members are assisting with the thinking and planning process. If you like to join the committee, plse whatsapp me +65 9489 4360.

We will leave Sat morning from Harbourfront. Have lunch somewhere, enjoy Batam and returning to the overnight venue. Our D&D starts at 6pm, knocking off to bed late into the night, have our breakfast at the hotel, before catching our ferry back to Singapore.

Options are open for now. We can opt for an organised tour which include the hotel stay or our own free and easy.

If you have a firmed suggestion, do let me know. Preference given to suggestions if you have taken the tour and stayed in the hotel. We shall close suggestions on 9 May 2018. Event will be held in June, and confirmed once we have decided options available. Let’s have a non-tradition idea.

Monthly walk: WPL Ramble

Date: Saturday, 14th April 2018

Start Time: 4.30pm SHARP

Duration of walk: approx 2.5 to 3hrs max

Meeting Place: Blk 7 Empress Road Market/Hawker Centre, off Farrer Road
(not Farrer Park).

Get to Meeting Place:
1) Nearest MRT-CircleLine CC20 Farrer Road MRT, Exit B, walk “against
traffic flow” along Farrer Rd to Blk 7, approx 6/7mins walk
OR
2) by Bus – available along both sides of Farrer Road: 48, 93, 153, 165, 174,
186, 855 and 961.

EC: ChristinA Chan.

The water PipeLine Rambles are a series of 4 treks introduced in 2008.
WPLR 2 and WPLR 3 are my favorite treks.
1st WPLR 2 was on 2nd August 2008 & then on 09March 2013, 5 years ago.

IF you have not been on this WPLR, you will not wanna miss it!
IF you have done this before, I reckon you are not able to recall and will
not want to miss it either!

This interesting trek with lush greenery all the way is not “our norm walk in the park”.
The terrain is undulating, as we trek up & down slopes, the route is mostly off the
beaten track.

The trail is exploratory and you can add some excitement if you so wish,
** get onto & walk on a large pipe OR
** slide down another OR
** test of strength…. challenge your Hand Power, heave oneself up a 4-feet
wall (if the wall is still there).

Let me assure you that the challenges are not as daunting as it seems ….

The walk shall end likely somewhere at Sixth Avenue where a variety of cuisine awaits!

Covered walking shoes that would not skid is highly recommended, but not new shoes as some parts might be sloshy.

IF you do not wish your legs to itch, come in long pants, longer socks & insects repellent; walk light with only the necessities.

Our Walk Team ECs: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari Cuttilan, Linda Chua and I, ChristinA Chan,,,,, signing off!

Do bear with me should we wander off course as I have no time to recce the entire trail,
COME! LET’S RAMBLE TOGETHER!           😀

NOW FOR THE MEMORIES………………

SHC LOHEI AT ALOHA LOYANG

On behalf of the STAMP team, thank you, Lohei participants for coming to support and joining us at the fun at Aloha Loyang just last Saturday. And it was a good opportunity for SHC members to meet there for a Reunion and to celebrate the festivity of Chinese New Year. Thanks also for your compliments and good feedback which you gave through our watsapp groupchat.

First of all, I must say how proud I am to have a wonderful cohesive STAMP team – Susan, Teresa, Ann, May and Peri. Yes, SHC got Talent and I want to highlight the talent from each of my team members that left everybody with a nice surprise:

Peri – for her special preparation of the Lohei dish and for sponsoring the generous add-ons of abalone and pacific clam. What a surprise she gave everybody with this delicious dish, topped with pomelo and jelly fish, which was happily tucked in after the mega toss that left little room in the stomach for dinner!

Teresa – for her signature muah chee, the highlight of the Tea spread. And if you take a look at the photos of her artistic creation of the dog, this is as good as the dog design done professionally by caterers in the preparation of the yusheng tray crafted from the julienned vegetables.

Ann – for ordering the caishenye outfit – what’s a lohei party without the Caishenye to make it complete? Ann is the one who took care of the “traditions” in line with the CNY theme – angbaos, the gold coins and what great lengths she did with some members in the team to do a lot of legwork to source for all the things.  Let’s hope somebody will win a Toto prize this coming Friday!

May Woo – besides helping with the securing of the Aloha Loyang bungalow she took sole charge of the order for the afternoon tea, coffee, drinks, cakes and all.

Together we have good teamwork and supported each other to complete each individual task. And hiccups will surely happen but it was quickly solved with quick thinking on our feet and that’s how we are always doing things cheerfully and supporting each other when challenges come in the way.

Special mention also to Sam for his great sport to don the caishenye outfit – Sam has always been a good sport to do anything good for everybody.

And now meet the offshoot born from our working group, BELLE – Bessie, Esther, Lillian, Lina and Evon, the support team working quietly behind the scenes. The party would not be able to take off so successfully without your help, thank you, BELLE.

Not to forget also to thank our generous sponsors for the prizes and tableful of door gifts:

Ronald, Thomas, Bessie and May

I hope that it was fun the way the door gifts were handed out.

To the line dance leaders, Yatsing and Lily, thank you for being part of the line dance group as seasoned line dancers. Hope that our line dancers have got their share of the fun in this segment of the programme, though it could not be finished due to lack of time.

And of course, to the photographers who sent the photos and videos, Richard Wong and the many others, thank you for sacrificing your time away from your enjoyment and food to take those nice photos and videos and sharing with us.

Last but not least, kindly excuse me if there is any inadvertent omission of names of people helping out at the event. It was very gratifying to see everyone approaching us to ask what can they do to start up the event as quickly as possible. This is very typical of the wonderful spirit of SHC members at events like this.

Now, let’s enjoy the photos of the whole event.

Dear Participants

HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR!

It’s countdown time to the big party!   First of all, I’d like to thank my wonderful STAMP sisters for working so hard putting the D-I-Y pieces together and seeing to the fruition of our plan for this coming Lohei on 24 Feb.   Having had 2 physical meetings and 2km long of watsapp discussions, we trust that everything will be smoothly executed.  Thanks especially to May Woo for making sure that we secure the spacious venue and therefore making the whole event possible.

We have a lot of interesting activities lined up for everyone to participate and enjoy.

– Be sure to bring along your oranges for the traditional CNY greeting when you meet Mr Caishenye at the door who will be laden with goodies in his basket to welcome you (no prizes for guessing who’s CSY – hohohohohahaaaa).

– A toto hongbao with 2 toto tickets for double-measure good luck and prosperity. Hopefully somebody will become a millionaire after this!

– Door gifts for early birds. Come early to choose your own gift while stocks last.

– Best dressed Lady and Guy Contest

– Guess-the-number-of-Oranges-in-the-basket-Contest and win a Prize

– Exciting games and prizes for winners

……….. and many more.

As our activities are packed back-to-back, do be punctual and be sure to be around for the specially prepared Lohei mega toss and dinner which will start at 5.30 pm SHARP.

Programme:

3.00 pm: Guests to arrive
Registration
Toto hongbao & door gifts
High Tea
Mini Line Dance jam

5.30 pm Lohei mega toss & Dinner

8.00 pm Games & Prizes.
Goodnight, hope you had a
good time!

Come dressed in your Sunday best and bring as many oranges as possible from home to add on to the basket for the Orange contest. Get ready to let our hair down and dance away, or have a delicious Tea spread over a hot drink and join in the CNY merry-making.

Finally, just a gentle advice that in the event that unpaid visitors are thinking of dropping by even for a while, please note that we have reached full capacity in the house and therefore they will not be admitted. Perhaps to avoid disappointment at the next event, kindly register early to secure a place. Hope you understand.

SO LET THE COUNT DOWN BEGIN – HUAT AHHHH!!

……Yours Truly and the STAMPers

Wishing every SHC member a healthy and happy Lunar New Year

Dear fellow members,

Soon, the Lunar New Year is here.  On behalf of the SilverHairsClub, I wish one and all members an enjoyable family reunion and a healthy happy year ahead.

SHC matchmakers

(This Post and idea were conceived and written on Nov 2010,  7 years ago.  I must admit we had limited but natural organic success,

SHCians who have been with the club for a number of years will know that we have always been on the lookout for matchmakers.  To avoid misunderstanding, the role was create with no intention to match-make boys with girls, or vice versa.

I had used this role name in the club to facilitiate the match making of members with similar interests.  For example, a new member has joined the club, and is interested to find other friends with interests in tree climbing.  Well, the match-maker will then look around his/her contacts in the club and introduce the like-minded members together.

The criteria to be a Match-mater are:

  1. Has been with SHC for at least a year.
  2. Is an active participant in this forum, and known to other members.

The tasks are:

  1. To take care of new members (20 new members), as assigned by the club.
  2. To assist the new members with finding their interest and participating in the activities.
  3. To constantly keep in touch with these new members.

So, if you are keen to take up this role, please raise your hand.  I will then be in touch with you; and you will be assigned new members.  Initially, I am looking for 5 match makers.
