Mid Autumn Kok and High Tea – 29 Sep (Sun) 1 – 5 pm

Mid Autumn festival is traditionally held annually in the month of September and October. The official date for year 2013 is September 19. Moon cakes abounds in shops all over towns and carrying of lanterns lends gaiety to the occasion. What is the significance of this festival and how does it affect the life of each of us? Many folklore are told and it would be good to hear from those who are familiar to share with us here. One fable was those how it came about.

‘The Zhuang people, for example, have an ancient fable saying the sun and moon are a couple and the stars are their children, and when the moon is pregnant, it becomes round, and then becomes crescent after giving birth to a child. These beliefs made it popular among women to worship and give offerings to the moon on this evening’.

Well, that only half of the story. We are here to join in the celebration and I have booked a nice place.

Date: September 29 (Sun) 1.00-5.00pm/Kolam Ayer Community Club, Geylang Bahru/Nearest MRT Potong Pasir (11 minutes walk)

Hilarious Hours of Fun and Song – 29 Sep (Sun) 1 – 5 pm

Now that the Mandarin class is under able hands I shall focus on another topic of interest. Book reading seems out of place for us oldies. Back to the drawing board and losing more hair in the process. Singalong session will be encouraged throughout. Everybody will have to sing in groups.
One of my policy from day one was to organize event that can reach to as many member as possible. How else can we get the new member to come forward to become active and to play a greater in adding vibrancy to the Club?
Four hours for singing.  An opportunity to meet new friend here.

Date: September 29 (Sunday)
Time: 1:00pm-5:00pm
Venue: Kolam Ayer CC, Geylang Bahru (11 minutes walk from Potong Pasir MRT)
Cost: $6.00 if we have 10 pax, $3.00 if we achieve 20 pax or pro-rated.
Hot water provided, bring your own beverage packages and some snacks for High Tea.

Depending on respond, we may have it on monthly. Please indicate whether you are coming for one or both session.

EO, Dan

Should EO enjoy a free ride?

Our intention for the event in question was to pro-rate the cost based on the number of participants. One of us suggested to collect $5.00 from each, why?. The cost was mentioned in the post and 33 pax signed up to attend but what if we don’t achieve this number, who will bear the difference. The EOs are at risk here because no money was collected upfront.
Actual person attended was 29 with 25 pax contributing and 4 abstained. Leftover of $25 was used to defray part of the dinner cost. Was the EOs justified to do that? Let’s us consider other considerations, 2 of us went to recce the place at our own cost and the unsung hero here is Susan who borne the cost of preparing porridge and mee-hoons for about 30 pax which I figure may amount to $25 considering she took a train from Jurong and catch a taxi from Kallang MRT to the venue.

What I can say here is we answer to nobody but for future events we like to invite ideas and opinions.

Not guilty!
Dan/Daniel/Susan/Joy

Mind your language.

To avoid any confusion I shall start a new post here. How many of us have a desire to improve ourselves whether to speak a new language, a new hobby or a new pastimes. Do we live with regret that certain things in our life should be achieve and experience but due to our laziness and procrastination we lose sight of our dreams and desires.

Learning Mandarin have been a goal I have set out to do but I did nothing and nothing happens. Now we have our own Daniel Chan who have kindly step out to help us. The date and the time was set.. Daniel being a lecturer himself will make it easy for us. Whether learning by rote or through karaoke singing he will guide us.

This is also an opportunity to meet and learn and laugh our hearts out. Who want to join us?

Taipei Cabaret Night will be here this month, thanks to the members who will add to the night’s entertainment, Sat 20 Jul 2013

cabaret taipei

Cabaret Night 2013 committee met for the first time last Sat, 29 Jun 2013 at Orchard Central.  Leading most of the work to make this event a success and as entertaining as possible for ever guest is Mega Abdullah.  He pieced together Jeffrey Gan who will provide all the live music (almost more tha 4 hours of live music) during the opening event.  And he has also added the local DJ who would be playing all the dance music and memorable songs to keep us dreamy, nostalgic and romantic.  Thank you Mega, we would not be able to coordinate all these work without your planning and running around.  Well done, considering this is mainly a Hokkien/Mandarin Cabaret.

There is another group who has been working more than just hard.  And these are the singers.  If you know me, I cannot sing, neither can I dance.  I cannot hear the difference between tempo and a tune.  But, there is a very capable lady who has made this possible, and she has come forward to accept the role of recruiting the singers, putting them through practice sessions and sequencing the songs.  I dare not try to figure out what are all the pains, criticisms and arguments she has faced so far, with the group and committee.  She is Judy Lim.  She is fluent with Hokkien and Mandarin songs.  Besides, Judy, we also have Janet Chan who loves singing, and helps Judy out with the Cantonese and Mandarin segments.  HI Tian Soo and Lai Fong, our two co-owners of this refurbished Cabaret, these are the two ladies who have started work way more than two months ago.

Let’s also bring in our stage managers – Pat Oei and Lyndy Chua.patandLyndy

Now, let’s look at our line up of Singers.  Many of the singers will be flying in from Hong Kong, Shanghai,  Singapore and Tokyo to bring us an evening of good fun and sheer music delight.  Let’s bring them in.  Please give them our applause for coming on stage.

(To the participants, my apology if you find your stage picture errh, “it cannot be me” Terence Seah

A Rock Concert in the works

And, as if we don’t have enough song and music events in SHC, I like to start exploring having a  Rock Concert.  I know what is a Concert, but I do not know what is Rock music.  Here are some vague ideas what I think the event will turn out to be.

  1. The venue is likely to be at the Hong Lim Green, but instead of political speeches, we  will have a Rock Concert.  There is a stage there.
  2. Time wise, it is likely to be in the late afternoon, say 4 – 6 pm.
  3. We would look out for either one or two rock bands and singers.
  4. The event will be organised by the SilverHairsClub, under the umbrella of the SilverHairs Enterprise Pte Ltd.
  5. Participants will have to be SHC members, but attendance to listen to the music will be offered to the public.
  6. The theme has not been decided yet, but we will work with the Rock band, musicians and singers.
  7. This will be a wholly English language event.
  8. Access to the Park will be from MRT station.  Just exit and that’s it.

In reality, nothing has been decided yet.  It’s a thought.  But,. if you know me, and I bring up the topic, it is likely 51% a yes, Let’s do it.  I am opening for discussion on this forum, any questions, ideas, suggestions or considerations for this event.  We will take two months, and close discussions and major decisions on 31  Aug 2013.  Let’s go.

50Plus Expo (this weekend) – Active Ageing

In case you are not aware, this expo will be held from Friday to Sunday (22 – 24 March) at Singapore Expo. I have attended twice so far – like especially the short talks here and there which are quite popular and the croonings from participants on stage.

I remember particularly the demo on Botox – very curious to see how the Botox needle poked into the model’s face in a few places – iyoh they were so cool but it was the audience who cringed though they didnt get the needles.

Also kaypoh-ing to find out what this Laughter Therapy session was all about but sorry, in the wrong group – no, no I love good jokes but just can’t laugh it off in the midst of strangers, but hey no problem if we have funny SHC friends around!

Now that my hair is turning silver, it’s time to move to more relaxed and topics closer to our hearts – such as Ageing Gracefully with TCM and Community in Bloom, both held on Sunday at 3 pm and 5 pm. At 4.30 pm there’s Disco Rock and Square Rhumba dance by a couple, probably from our age group, my guess. Hey, dance is a strong part of our SHC culture, right? Oooooo so happening, just in the middle of our SHC dance group lessons, learning these 2 dances.

Goodie, goodie, this time-table from 3 to 6 pm couldn’t have been more perfect. Got 2-3 members joining already. Anymore game to join us?

Better to sign in online, get your confirmation slip and get faster check-in. Website url: http://www.50plussingapore.com/

Don’t forget to sign in for the talks too!

Esplanade Outdoor Theatre – Free Concert, 25 Dec 2012

Dear Members 

The Summertime Big Band will be performing at the Esplanade on 25 December 2012.  The three sets are from 7.30pm to 8.15pm, 8.45pm to 9.30pm and 10pm to 10.45pm. 

They play mostly jazz and some pop.  They usually charge more than S$10k per gig.  Since this is free, we should take advantage of it.

So for those of you who have the time and enjoy "live" band performances, do go down to listen the music.

Btw, my daughter will also be performing so I will there.  Hope to see you there. 

Cheers

Carly

Halloween night, Tue 30 Oct 2012

Halloween night is a night out for monsters and eerie things.  For many years, I have noticed Halloween nights being celebrated and enjoyed in clubs by young people all over the world.  However, I have not attended any one of them.  I know participants wear eerie attire, carrying with them a spear on one hand, and a arrow tail behind their back.

I think this occasion can be a fun time to get together, squeezed ourselves in a small pub, with tight opportunities for dancing and talking loudly and closely at each others ears to share a conversation.  And, when the music stops or the singers decide to take a rest, wow, we have some minutes of rest intereval.

I had been invited before to a pub next to and just after 112 Katong, and I thought it would be a nice place to celebrate Halloween night.  The music and songs on Tues is nostalgic and rather suitable to most of us.  Most drinks are at $10 each, pay upon delivery of the glass.  I think they do not serve coffee, tea or soft drinks. Many tables and stools, and yet can be cramped for a SHC crowd.  There is a 2 piece band, with a singer, likely he can entertain us if we make a request.  Did not see any food, so likely we have to eat before coming.

Well, if you like a night out, one day before 31 Oct, come together for a drink or two, listen to some great music and catching up the weird ones among us celebrating Halloween night, come join me at this place, I think the name is 57 Chevvy at 8pm.  You can leave anytime before the clock strikes 12 or sneak out if you find the tempo too soft or hot for you.

No attendance will be taken.  You dont have to register if you prefer not to.  Yu can come with anybody, any dress, anytime or sneak in ans out quietly.  Simply come in, find a seat, if you can get one, pay for your own drink and figure out who’s there that night.

See you on 30 Oct night.  Registration NOT needed.

Cost: $5.00 per pax (Each member who signs up must sponsor one or more elderly residents)

Menu: Food catered by Sin Kee Famous chicken rice includes white and roasted chicken, an egg dish, a toufu dish and a vegetable dish. We need a sponsor for soft drinks.

A medical point will be set up from 11.00 am to 12.30 pm for those coming to check their glucose level, foot scan and blood pressure.

“SilverHairsClub Awards night”, Oct 2012

We have many members who have contributed immensely to SilverHairsClub.  Many members have a strong desire to help fellow SilverHairs.  Others are excellent entertainers. For some, their contributions comes in the form of friendship and support.  We have some die-heart forum contributors.  Others may just have the sweetest of smiles.  I am receptive to all kinds of awards, eg the oldest SHCian, or the youngest SHCian, most meaningful picture, or even Mr/Ms Grouchy,  although I will leave this to the committee of judges.

Do you think it is a good idea to have the "SilverHairsClub awards night"?  It is a great way to show our appreciation to the people who have contributed to making SHC successful, and in fulfulling its objective of providing a platform for SilverHairs to meet new and more friends.

We could have awards like "Best EO of the year", or even "Best performing actress", or "Highest contributor to the SHC forum’.  Well, the list of awards can go on and on.  I was thinking that we could list the type of awards, from now to end of 2011.  For this first awards night, we can look back all the way to Oct 2005.  Then, we have the SilverHairsClub awards night in Oct 2012.

SilverHairsClub awards night is likely to take the form of a sit down stage/audience.  Presentations will be given to the winners of these awards.  There will also be stage entertainment.  Award winners would most likely be dressed in evening gowns, suits, or as appropriate to the event event.  The venue preferred would be an auditorium or a concert hall.

Unlikely, there will be dinner.  Other sides activities may be considered.

Nominations for winners of these awards will likely start around June 2012.  It will likely take the form of a postcard to be sent to the judging committee.  No mention of nominations will be published on this forum.  A committee will be formed to decide on the winners; and the results will be announced that very evening of the event.

So, for now, please share what’s inside your thinking cap as to what kind of awards we can have?  Comments are always welcome.  Please respect each others’ views.  Feel free, but please do not mention names.  Your comment may be deleted.

Direct Selling is one of SHC’s taboos

Direct selling is one of SilverHairsClub’s taboos.

Organising a talk or seminar with the intention to promote or sell a product
or a service to members is considered Direct selling. This taboo was
implemented in Oct 2005, when SHC was started, as a platform for
SilverHairs to meet and make more friends. The idea then was to prevent a
situation whereby members use the Club’s platform to promote and sell
products and services.

While some audience do benefit from the talks, other audience may feel
they have been falsely led into buying a product or service by attending these
talks. As such, the club had made direct selling a taboo.   The same
applies to MLM.  This taboo may sound silly and narrow-minded to some
members.   But sitting in an audience towards the end of the talk when
you know that a product is going to be pushed to you can be discomforting.

Members who fail to observe this taboo may be removed from the club’s
membership or may not be allowed to use the club’s forum.  If in doubt,
please contact admin@silverhairsclub.com.

Should we have an agenda for the monthly meeting?

Most of us are glad to be a member at the Silverhairs Club and appreciate what Terence has done in providing a platform for us to meet. So far Terence has suggested and introduce many activities and carry it through in the last few years. As member we are happy to be part of this and look forward to more participation to come.

Is there something we could do or suggest to bring the club to the next level? Out of this Club many smaller groups are formed and they in turn meet up privately and persue their common interest.

The September meeting will be different from what we had previously. Live singing  by Jeffrey Gan on the keyboard and karoeke singing where member brings their own cd wll be the happenings of the day! Board and card games will also be encourage where member can look for other member sharing similar interest.

I would like to see more participation from member, how about meeting up and have a time where various member can share their thought and mission in life, something in line with Toastmaster International. Having our meeting in Han’s may not provide the privacy needed in such sharing by public speaking. We need to find a place more enclosed for such.

We all come from various background, there will be something exciting to share. Having to make comment on the post may be prohibiting as certain topic may be sensitive. When we meet and listen to fellow member share their goals and ideal in life, a certain bond are created.

Volunteers will be ask to share something about their life that  is memorable and enriching. Do you know that I have tried bungee jumping just because I was trying to get someone’s attention. Oh, there are so much to share and talk about.

It may be just meeting up and sharing each other profile and ideal in life. So, fellow member come to this September gathering. I would want to try something out where we allocate a time frame for each of us to speak out and suggest what they want to see happening in this unigue Club! So many thing I would want to share, my life, my passion and motivation in life and of course some of you may want to share too. Let’s hear from you?

Online trading chit chats – every Tues and Thurs

It’s been a long time since we chat about online trading.  In our earlier days, we had talks on shares and currency markets.  We had speakers. Small groups were formed and some are still on-going.  Our good old Ben Foo used to conduct online trading courses.  A number of SHCians trade online on a daily basis.  Some make some money; others, we will never know. 

I just spotted a new member reviving an old post by Ronald Wie.  It was titled "Group strategy" vs "Individual investor".  Maybe this would have made a lot more sense than the title itself.  I wonder how many SHCians are doing online trading, be it stocks or currencies.

The MPH cafe is pretty quiet in the afternoon, and ideal to discuss online trading tips.  There is WIFI connection, so you can have a good internet link with your broker’s server.  For a start, I like to invite 4-5 SHCians to come together, link up to their own broker’s server and share and enjoy trading tips.  So sorry, the cafe has only one or two power points.

My office is just two blocks away; so I shall come and see see.  Rene is also there; so she can learn from the more experienced ones.

Days:  Every Tuesday and Thursday, 2pm to 5pm sharp; except public holidays.  It starts after 2pm as lunch hours would be over then.

If you are keen to share online trading knowledge, tips, warnings and surprises, please register your name here, so we can expect your coming and allocate a corner for you.

Do you have a topic that you can stand up and share with us?

Many of us have wide expereince and skills.  Especially after reaching 45, we must have collected a lot of knowledge.  Some of us have also  picked up social skills and entrepreneurial experience.  Then, there are others who have picked up CARE skills, crafts and hobbies.  Talk about dogs, flowers, plants, deep sea fishing, vitamins, herbs, aeroplanes, dress, cakes, bakery, computers.  Talk about find a friend or a soul mate, a favourite topic of mine.

You too can share these skills and knowledge.  Tell us what you can talk about, we will organise the ideas and then have a session on it.  Anybody who is interested can come along.  You can listen, and you can share the thoughts, views and comments in return.

Only members can talk.  We will co-ordinate the topics,  but you have to submit them here on this forum by 30 April.  I believe we can spread all the topics from now to end of 2010.  Go ahead, and speak your mind.  Please do not send me any emails on this subject.

SEE ANDREA BOCELLI FOR FREE AT BOTANIC GARDENS, May 8 2010

Hi all

There are not a lot of things that comes free in life.  Thanks to Robert, we get to see free movies almost every month 🙂

Now I have great news that we can watch Andrea Bocelli for free for those opera fans.  His last visit to Singapore was in 2004 at Singapore Indoor Stadium.  His tickets are super expensive as he is in the same class as Pavarotti.

A Malaysian tycoon has generously brought in Andrea Bocelli and this is not the first time he has done such a charitable act.

Please note that tickets are only given out by ballot and you need to register yourself at ytlconcert2010.com.sg and only a pair will be given.  For those successful applicants, pls put your names on the SHC forum and we will make a picnic out of it.  Of course, now I am crossing my fingers, legs, toes everything to hopefully can be one of those successful applicants.

WHAT YOU WAITING FOR ??!!!  Cheers (*_*) !!!
