We can have the May monthly gathering if a member raises his/her hand to be the EO. I won’t be available in May and June 2018.
If you have not been an Event Organiser for the monthly gathering, plse give it a good, as all members are expected to organise at least one event for the club.
One option is SilverHairsClub invites outside organisers to handle the monthly gathering. I would assume there will be an organising fee, if we are unable to organise the event ourselves. I hope members would make effort to be an EO, as the Club has expenses, and this is one way to keep the club going. We would therefore no need to hire external organisers.
Look forward to your suport.
The SHC WhatsApp group on CPF Life, MediXXC and health insurance has 49 participants. The top topics are CPF payouts, MediXXX and Health insurance. Other topics are CPF Life payouts, retirement acct and related retirement costs.
As these are important topics for many of us, and I would like to organise a live session for us to share information, ask Questions and hear what other members have to say about these topics.
Plse note this is a member sharing activity. You are advised to contact CPF directly for the information you require.
The WhatsApp discussion is excellent, as it has allowed members to share with one and all. This will continue and you are invited to join. We shall taken in new participants until closing date 15 Apr 2018.
The live discussion will be 3 hrs. One hour for speakers, one hour for Q&A and one hour for group discussions.
The date and time is now fixed as follows:
This event is strictly for SHC members. Closing date for registration: 17 Apr 2018.
We are at the thinking and planning stage for our April monthly gathering. Some ideas include holding the event at West Singapore or North Singapore. We could hold it on a weekday in the evening, to cater to working members. This may mean the CBD. We could add a talk or topic. We may even be able to hold the event in your office or factory.
But, important is to find a suitable location, near a MRT station. It is always good to have flexible F&B, rather than a fixed menu. We should keep costs low.
Most members can respond their participation, if we give 10 days notice. Lets keep our options open. I look forward to hear your ideas and suggestions. Closing date for feedback: 1 Apr 2018.

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.
The Club had planned to hold a members only gathering at a condo poolside, sometime in Jan or Feb 2017. The date is now confirmed for Sat 14 Jan 2017, 12 noon to 1700 hrs. We have booked the function room and the Karaoke room. The condo is conveniently located walking distance from DT3 Hillview train station. We are able to use the pool as one of our members Grace Ng lives there. Bring your sexy trunks and swimming costumes. Bathing facilities available around the pool. You can also suntan on the deck chairs around the pool.
The activity aims to provide a platform for members to meet one another and get to know one another better. Details on the program are being worked but you are invited to contribute an event, if the condo management allows it.
A lunch buffet is being organised. Member Daisy Phua is assisting the organisation of the F&B.
Full Event fee: $25.
Early bird registration and payment before 31 Dec 2016 – $20

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.
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.
It’s been sometime since we have the monthly gathering. We had Hans Cafe, but that place was gone long ago.
