Farewell to Daniel Ong

Daniel Ong Teck Hock had passed away at 2.45 pm today.

Daniel Ong was known to us as one of a few SHC members who dedicated his own time and finance in teaching other willing members. He spent every Saturday evening for more than a year in sharing his dancing skills and knowledge with a group of SHC friends at the Braddell Height Club House. We hereby wish to bid him farewell to a journey well travelled.

The wake will be held at Telok Blangah Tower, Street 31 Block 80-D. Funeral on Saturday.

Saturday night disco coming up on Sat 17 May 2014 (6 – 11 pm) ~ Oxford Hotel, Skylight Cafe .. changed to Monthly May meeting from 6 – 9 pm

disco9disco3disco2disco5disco6disco1Dancing has definitely changed since our childhood days.  I am not sure what your first disco night was like, and whether you rmembered who you dance with.  Well today, we have social dancing, ballroom dancing and line dancing, all sorts.  Our days of disco dancing were fun.

It’s time again to go disco dancing. And, our schools are selling tickets, and everybody is encouraged to buy at least two tickets.  Organisers volunteer to put up balloons, and very likely we have a live band.  Not so sure if we can afford it, although in this disco, we wont have a live band. It’s alright if the speaks sqeeks, or goes bomm bomm bomm. Never mind if there is a blackout. Everybody gets excited, who can we dance with?  What if we get rejected.  Toughest part, is what we wear?

We have a few details:

  • Date:  17 May 2014
  • Time: 1700 – 2300 hours.  Our parents want us to be home by midnight.
  • Place:  We have to find.
  • Food: Yes, the school teacher is still working on it.
  • Drinks:  Orange punch, water melon punch.  Ours may be different.
  • Program: Let the boys and girls across the other class come up with it.  Please help and come up with ideas.  Tie one leg with someone else leg.
  • Birthday: Are you borned in May?
  • Number of pax: 30
  • Charge:  Cannot be expensive, our parents gave us $0.50 a day.

This event can also be a chance for you to dream and bring your friends and classmates together. And, if your class wants to EO this event, why not?  Hands-up?

EC event – Play about Love (Sat, 19 Oct 2013, 3pm to 4.30pm)

Dear all

The Ageless Theatre presents Faces (Phases) of Love, a play about the power of love and the search for that special someone. It comprises four short skits, including one about a lonely widow’s love for her deceased husband, and another about four mahjong buddies reminiscing about love and loss.

The venue is the Marine Parade Community Club Theatrette. Each ticket costs $15. As contact numbers of the organisers cannot be displayed here, if you wish to join a couple of us for this performance, you may transfer funds to my POSB Savings Account 159-13164-5 and I can purchase the tickets on your behalf.

What is interesting is that the Ageless Theatre comprises people aged 43 and above.

Any play enthusiasts?

Joy 🙂

dance, so I can catch up…….."

 

Glad to get the 1st course off its feet.  It is ending soon

hi all
a big welcome to all of you who have shown an interest in dancing; as at today we have 62 names listed; those who have not responded to my request for dancing information and background have been delisted; we will not be accepting anymore names for the time being; as usual the ladies outnumber the guys; we have 46 females and 16 males; so i will still be glad to accept males who are keen!
the following have been planned for 2012:

1)     newbies/novices sub-category:  we will help you to get started in dancing by introducing you to 5 social dances; these are the social cha cha, disco rock, square rumba, slow rhythm and social waltz; we will conduct lessons for you; we will provide you with notes on the various steps so you are less likely to forget the steps and if necessary we will revise them frequently; you should be able to dance comfortably in any social dancing events once you have completed these lessons; lessons will tentatively be on sunday afternoons between 3pm to 5pm; we will confirm the venue in due course;

2)     basic/elementary sub-category: this is by far the largest group; most of you can already dance the social dances; so we will introduce the elementary steps of the ballroom waltz; the elementary and intermediate latin rumba; the elementary jive; perhaps the elementary latin cha cha as well, depending on progress and time constraints; lessons will be on either sundays between 6pm to 8pm or tuesdays between 8pm to 10pm; we will confirm the venue in due course; notes will also be provided;

3)     elementary/intermediate/advance sub-category:  we will be focusing on the modern ballroom here; so we will revise and practise the waltz; the viennese waltz, the quickstep, the latin rumba, the latin cha cha and maybe some elementary jive; our practise session will be on friday nights between 7pm to 9pm; we will confirm the venue in due course;
we will invite you to sign up for lessons nearer the time; there will be a small contribution to cover rental costs and incidentals but there will not be any profit making; no money will go into my pocket! any excess monies we have, will go towards organizing events and functions for the group;
we look forward to your participation and support so we can all have a fun and enjoyable 2012…we look forward to building a cohesive dancing group within shc with everyone’s help;

Calling all social & ballroom dancing enthusiasts…

as some of you may know, presently there is a small group of amateur dancing enthusiasts who come to together and share the love for dancing with one another; we hope to conduct more dancing sessions to reach out to those of you who are keen to take up dancing or who wish to continue to learn new variations; we will probably be sharing the cha cha, disco rock, waltz, square rumba, latin rumba, viennesse waltz, jive rhythm and others in the near future;

if you are keen or have an interest in social and ballroom dancing please indicate your interest here so we can keep you in the loop as and when we are able to provide lessons or have a social dance function for members;

Anyone interested to participate in Drama (acting)?

"If you have SilverHairs at heart, and likes to organise activities for SHC"  –  I just joined SilverHairs a few minutes ago as I would like to lead a group of ‘Drama / Acting Enthusiasts’ in SHC. I had just finished my 3 years programme of ‘Theatre for Seniors’ with The Necessary Stage and had 3 public performance experiences. This 3yrs programme was encouraged & sponsored by Council for Third Age on ‘Active Aging’. I would love to meet up for a discussion so that I can share more on this and answer whatever queries before your club decide to start the class.  Cheers!

Pearl Wong.

I am not a professional Beautician by trade but I picked up this Facial Kua-Sa a few years back and have benefitted from it . I  have  be using this method to do monthly facial on my own at home and have save money for not visiting the SPA.   A few SHC members have see the result of this  facial Kua-sa .

I have very bad pigmentation as I am always under the hot-sun with my kids’s outdoor activities. With this facial method  –  it have lighten the pigmentation ,  lift-up the skin around the Cheeks where it will always form a "Pa-Zhi" as we age. It helps to soften wrinkles on the fore-head as well as crow-feet  around the eyes.

This  facial Kua-Sa will help blood-circumlate around  the facial area which result in a more radiant  & growing skin.

So , all the "Ai-Swee" ladies who are interested … Sign in for a morning class at Cafe. 

Venue : "Bra" Cafe

Date : 14/May/2011(Sat)     Time : 10.00Am – 12.00 Noon

Course Fee : $25 (include a Kua-Sa tool worth $15 to bring home after the class)

                      Include one "lemon Whitening Mask"  which we will be using during the class

 

Things to bring  : *   Day cream (yr own daily use cream)  or  Baby Lotion  

                             *   Small Mirror

                             *   Pen

                             *  hair-band or a towel to tie your hair back 

 ** Please come without your make-up but is ok to apply your day cream as we will be doing a Hands-on Demo in the class **  

Do come down  for a "Cha Bor" Morning breakfast & Chit-Chat session and  make yoursel "Mei Mei" for the day to come.
