Shc Monthly Meeting
2 August 2017

I would like to thank everyone who takes their precious time to attend this August monthly get together. Turnout was unexpectedly high and we also get to have very good constructive feedbacks from our very own members.
Thanks again and also to those unable, due to unforseen circumstance. I look forward to the next monthly meeting to attend and support the next EO .
All the best and stay healthy.
Cheers!
Stella sheng

****************************************

July is a terrible month. 33 deg C or higher is common. The rising temperature warms the body, agitates the mind and torments intolerance. Thank goodness there are only a few days left.

Come August and the autumn breeze starts blowing. Similarly, as we approach our autumn years, we shall be more benevolent. Let us relax and unwind. Let us come together simply for a cup of coffee and chat.

CNY Lo Hei Lunch

SHC Happy 5, neither too many nor too few

Thank you for the presence of Charles, Daisy, Dan, Bobby including myself

making an effort to attend this Lo Hei Lunch today

Good to know these faithful members have committed this Rooster year gathering fun

We hope to see more members next year

Thank you for sharing

Cheers

Doreen

The Rooster is coming; let’s come up with suggestions on how to celebrate the occasion

Traditionally, most of us would have now started to springclean our house.  Then, we start to think what we shall do for the family reunion dinner.  The next day, we would visit our parents, and we fight to figure out which relatives we like to visit.  We wait for invitations to visit colleaques and friends.  And, we anxiously wait for our children to come over with their children.  Not forgetting we enjoy exchanging oranges and give angpows.  We enjoy the goodies, the bak kwa and Green Spot drink.

As the year passed, some of our children feel it is better to spend this holiday to escape the tradition and chore of visiting relatives.  The cruise ships are full with bookings throughout this season, and family members explore going down under to Australia, a short trip to Bintam or regional Asean.  For many of us, Chinese New Year may now be different from what it was before when we were 16, 30 and 45.

At around this time, we think what event we can hold.  Usually, we land up with a sit-down round table lunch or dinner.  If the event meets our club’s objective, we can go for it.  I guess there are limitations at this time, and costs are likely to be high, and most people would have their plans.  But, we can still celebrate this Rooster year together.

Think of a gambling table, some satay or prata or even chicken curry.  Think a little further than Singapore. Maybe a country club function room. Maybe someone’s house or apartment.  How about dancing on a Sat afternoon?

If you have something in mind, share with us. Suggest a date, a place and cost.

Closing date for suggestions: Mon 23 Jan 2017.

let’s celebrate Hari Raya Puasa this July

This year, Hari Raya Puasa is on Wed 6 July 2016. It is a public holiday, and is celebrated at the end of the Ramadan month of fasting. It is also known as the festival of Eid or as Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Hari Raya means the ‘grand day of rejoicing’ and, in Singapore, it is a big Muslim festival that recognises the demonstration of self-restraint during Ramadan, and symbolises purification and renewal. It is a time of forgiveness and children often visit their parents. From the 20th day of Ramadan, oil lamps are lit in homes until the end of the festival. For Hari Raya Puasa, people decorate their homes and put on new clothes. The men wear Baju Melayu (a loose shirt with trousers) with kain samping (a short sarong), while the Baju Kurung is often worn by women. Early in the day on Hari Raya Puasa, Muslims go to the mosques for prayers. During the afternoon, families and close friends gather together for a thanksgiving feast where forgiveness and blessing is sought from one another. Duit raya, green envelopes containing gifts of money, are often given to children and the elderly then everyone enjoys the food specialties such as beef rendang, satay, ketupat and lontong followed by cookies, cakes, biscuits, sweets and pineapple tarts. The customary greeting is ‘Selamat Hari Raya’, and celebrations of Hari Raya Puasa extends for three days, up to a month.

We have not had a Hari Raya Puasa celebration and gathering before, and I am thinking this year, we shall hold one event during the month of July.
Let’s open to members for ideas.  We shall firm our ideas by 30 Jun 2016.

Let’s bring the Baycity Rollers to SHC

The Bay City Rollers are a Scottish pop band whose popularity was highest in the mid 1970s. They were worldwide teen idols.

In 1973, “Saturday Night” was produced for the band. By early 1975, The Baycity Rollers saw a successful UK tour, which prompted newspaper headlines about the rise “Rollermania”.  Bay City Roller fans had a distinctive style of dress,comprising calf-length tartan trousers and tartan scarves. In 1976, the group released “I Only Want to Be with You” which I am sure many Silverhairs have heard and danced to.

Where were you then?  In school, just finishing your National Service, dating your first love or feeling sweet 16.  Let’s bring back memories of the mid 70s.  English songs, pop music, London, Edinburgh, top UK charts, SATURDAY night and I only wanna be with you.

Yes, we should have a band and teeny idol singers to match.  And an English setting at the British Club to bring back the atmosphere.  And, our guests will be anybody and everybody over 45.

This is still a dream.  And if you share in the same dream, please share your thoughts.

3 recommendations to hold our monthly gatherings

shclogo300    monthly meeting  monthly mtg3

Three places have been identified as possible venues to hold our regular SHC monthly gathering.  There are:

  1. Lee Kong Chian Food court – Basement 1.
  2. HarbourFront Food court – 4th floor, located at NEL
  3. SMU food court – located at Circle line

Thank you to the members who have suggested these places.  Ideally, we are looking for a place which does not require us to commit to a certain number of pax.  The venue should be located close to a train station.  Food and prices should be varied, so that we can cater to different needs.  The place should be relativelyquiet during the hours of 5pm to 8pm.

We will make the decision based on your comments.

March 2015 monthly gathering – coming up

polaroid-110612  febmtg1  febmtg4 We are now looking at March 2015 monthly gathering.  Our favourite was Hans at Upper Pickering; but that was closed.  But, the thinking process goes on.  Jayleen Hotel is currently being explored but this will very much depend on the EO.

Victor Khor will likely be the EO for the March 2015 monthly gathering. Let’s keep in touch until Victor has it all planned up.

Please share your suggestions and thots here.

SHC monthly gathering – Fri 6 Feb 2015

febmtg1  febmtg4

Update:  The cafe seems to have been closed.  This post is not valid for now.

One of the most important activity in SilverHairsClub is the monthly gathering. It is an Suddexcellent opportunity for members to meet one another.

The key agenda of the monthly gathering is to meet one another, for all kinds of reasons and excuses. It is the after-the-monthly-gathering that is equally exciting. We leave it to you.

This time, we have a fellow member who has volunteered to ring the ship’s bell, and buy the first drink for all members who register for this event. We will work the details later.

The event will be held as below:
Hans Cafe and Restaurant,
Upper Pickering Street,
Near MRT is Clarke Quay
Time: 5pm to 8pm
Date: Fri 6 Feb 2015

Registration is required. Please bring along your home-made nametag. The drink voucher will be given to you, for registered members only.

Plse put this date into your diary. And on this note, and on behalf of SilverHairsClub, I like to thank the kind member.

Sat afternoon at Jayleen Hotel, Carpenter Street ~17 Jan 2015

jayleen hotel2  jayleen hotel jayleen hotel 3  new year 2015  SilverHairsClub shall continue to look for places where members can gather together, to get to know one another.  We shall make effort to enable Singaporeans, over 45, to meet new friends.

Two members, SS James Tan and Andrew Koh showed me the Jayleen Hotel at Carpenter Street to evaluate their lunch setup and facilities.  We found the place suitable for a Saturday afternoon gathering. The lunch buffet is reasonable, and workable.   There is also a cosy living area and dining area.  Convenient is the large carpark, just outside the hotel.

The hotel has a reasonable music system.  Although loudness will be limited because of closeness to the hotel rooms, we may be able to use the music system.  We can have slow or soft ballads, and old fashion singing.  We can also have our own musician, who would have to bring along our own keyboard or guitar.  Accompanied singing is allowed, altho we have to set the sound level to 3.  10 is the loudest.  I am thinking of some old school songs to agitate our school days memories.

If we start at 12nn, we can end around 4pm.  This would be a Saturday.  We are looking at a price level of $17 per pax.

  • date: Sat 17 Jan 2015
  • place: living and dining room of Jayleen hotel.
  • time: 12nn – 4pm
  • cost:  $17 per pax (inclusive of a buffet and coffee/tea till 4pm)
  • Music and low volume singng – we can plug into the sound system if we bring a keyboard and musician.  If you can help to liaise this part of the work, it would be nice.
  • Pl pay to POSB Current Acct 951-00428-6 (ref number and date of transaction to be indicated on this blog)

Menu is subject to change:

  1. Diced Chicken Thigh in House Special Chicken Rendang Gravy
  2. Sayur Lodeh (Mixed Vegetable)
  3. Battered Finger Fish Fillet, with Mayonnaise sauce
  4. Mixed Omelette
  5. One Green Seasonal Vegetable dish

How many places in the world would you like to see before the legs say No? Europe and Eurail.

travel2travel1travel3

Travel has always been a top activity of SilverHairs.  We have worked all our lives, and we have not seen so many places. Some of us yean to go to Bangkok every year.  I go every month, and it is still exciting.  But there are so many other places.  There is China, India, Callifornia, Mexico (World Cup comng), Artic cruise, around Vancouver, etc, etc.  No end, our dreams and our pockets will decide.

An European Train travel 14 countries, How about Genting, Penang, or even Bali, or even Perth, Brisbane.  Too many, where do you want to go.  Your wishes, make it come true.

All your travel dreams will work well, if planned in advance, and you go with friends, people you know.  Maybe you want to go to Europe next year, but dont know who to go with.  Well, there is always someone who wants to go to Europe too.  Talk about it.  Let’s others know where you would like  go.  Maybe, both of you will pair up.

Well, we will set a date where all interested in travel can come together.  We will gather you in groups, by cities or groups, or …. The rest will be up to you. So, speak up and register your interest here.

This event is strictly for SHC members only.  However, you go with finally, is up to you.  Have fun.
