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.

“If you fancy BIG BALL game….happening from 22/3/2009

Hello fellow SHC members, if you fancy BIG BALL game……..

I mean BOWLING.

We intend to start a Sunday Bowling Session.

It is going to be for two groups.

Group A – for regular bowler and “in” for a competition and friendly game.       If things work out fine, may form a SHC Bowling Ladder later.      So, bowlers…. are YOU in for a game?

Group B – for beginner and “L” plate holder’s bowler.

Calling all SHC awarded “Long Kang” Bowling King or Queen, and persons who like to take up this game for fun and leisure, to join in. For those who wanted the “L” plate, we have Richard Yee who is happy to coach and guide you with a push, a tip or hold your hand to get the ball off the “Long Kang”. In no time you may even get yourself upgraded to Group A. It is a matter of how keen and serious you are.

Born year of the Rabbit (1951). Returning S’porean – have lived in Jupiter, Florida from 1988. 2004 lived in Belgium till return early this year.

While in Belgium, joined the Singapore Association for Belgium/Luxemburg – enjoyed activities like Chinese New Year & Hawker Fare (so shiok – brings back lots of memories of home – esp local FOOD). While abroad, did some Arts related activities. Beaded jewelry. Quilts/patchwork. 

Would love to take up golf – again. Is there a golf pro in this SilverHairClub?

Would love to meet up with members who lived in Florida (Jupiter area?) & Belgium.

Cheers!

Recently, I met a close friend Ron Lai and he mentioned SHC to me. He said that since I am actively involved in singing and dancing, why not join him. He mentioned that the people there are very friendly and I then decide to join the club.

I am a long time musician and had a running band presently.I had also played in many functions all over like SICC, KEPPEL CLUB, QUALITY HOTEL, SUNTEC CONVENTION HALL to name a few. I am presently conducting singing live band and social dance here and there. I am also an assistant convenor for PARC bowling for the past 10 years and is now held in Planet Bowl, Tessensohn Road. We have 4 days a week session from 2-4PM. Hope to see you real soon. Cherrio !
