Going to Desaru using Sam Goh’s services (Trip cancelled)

desaru beach

I love Malaysia, especially its beaches.  I too love Malaysian food.  Although I travel extensively within Asia, it seems I will not have enough of enjoying Malaysia’s countryside, food, beaches and other delights.

I like to give this a try, and that is to go to Desaru beach.  I discussed with Sam Goh and he is able to provide transport and bring us around Desaru.  He knows enough of Johore to be able to bring participants around.

  • Trip proper:  2D1N to desaru camping.
  • Date/time: Not agreed yet, but it will be 2D 1N.
  • Limited:  6 pax per trip.,
  • Pickup point:  JB Sentral
  • Return point:  JB Sentral
  • Petrol:  Sam tops up to full tank and will top up his tank on return.  Participants pay for petrol and toll.
  • Food:  All participants, exceopt driver, share in the food and drinks costs.
  • Hotel: Estimated at SGD 50 per night. Participants share costs of rooms.  Driver does not pay for the hotel room share.  He will share with me, if he does not snore.
  • Service fee:  SGD 10 per participant per day. For 2D1N, service fee per person is SGD 20.  If we go out for 3D2N, the fee is SGD 30 per pax.
  • Tent:  buy your own tent.  It costs around SGD 20, and you can use it when you join me regularly.

Please keep yourself updated here.  I shall announce the date soon.

Retiree Club (East)

retirement2  retired1  retired2

Calling all retirees in the East

I have formed a retiree club in the Kembangan area wherein active retirees can:

  • gather for coffee chats in the nearby coffee shops/joints in the east
  • makan in the hawker centres/markets in Bedok, Paya Lebar and Tampines in the east
  • morning walks at 5.30 am or late evening walks at 6.30 pm when it’s not too hot
  • introduction to ukulele fun
  • yak yak on anything (ranging from current affairs, in-laws, grown-up kids to anything under the sun)
  • help and seeking advice from one another
  • cycling in the parks (I need a trike or tandem rider though)
  • ….. and so on…. the list is by no means exhaustive

The 24-hour sarabat stall at Jalan Lapang (Kembangan) may be a good venue to be considered.  It’s just a stone’s throw from the Kembangan mrt station.  Those staying in this area may be familiar with this eating place.  It’s rustic, nostalgic and gives the ambience of Singapore in the early 60s or a typical Malaysian sarabat stall of today.

These are only ideas on the drawing board and can be finetuned as we gather momentum.  A chatline has been set up for those who have indicated interest so as  to keep everyone in the loop on activities or good sharings.  As we’re retirees, we’ll keep to thrifty thrills/fun…. no lavish spending.

So far, some 20 of my friends (mostly shc) have already indicated their interest in joining this retiree club as and when they’re free.  It’s good to form friendships now before it’s too late.  One’s spouse may not be with you forever and depression may set in (if you’re too close or dependent on your beloved) and especially when you’re already facing the empty nest syndrome.  We must rely on ourselves for our own well-being and happiness.  There’s a saying:

“No one is born happy but every one is born with the Ability to create HAPPINESS”.

Just leave a message here or apps me (if you have my hp number) if you are interested in joining the Retiree Club (East). A very important requirement is no quarrelling, hitting below the belt  or gossips on my chatline (taboos for the retiree club).   We want everyone to be happy and get along well.  Any recalcitrant member will be deleted from my chatline   🙂

Thank you.

Warmest regards,

Gabriella

Those Interested:

  1. 23 members in my Retiree Club  (East)
  2. Just leave your name on this forum page or apps me …. tks

Good time to walk off the loaded extras during the festive seasons.

We will walk to one of the less visited places: The “Rocket” at Upper Seletar Reservoir Park.
This “futuristic space age rocket” was built and completed in Seletar in 1969 – the
same year astronauts from the Apollo 11 space flight landed on the moon.

Pleasant & easy walk to the Rocket which overlooks lush nature.
Those with stronger legs & knees can go up the Tower. The view is breathtaking.
On the way back, if enough time we will visit Springleaf Nature Park & stroll along the newly built Springleaf park connector.
Surely, will meet several of this Lunar zodiac “representative” along the way.    Hehe…

There are many Makan places around Spring Leaf area. We can have dinner there
or take the bus back to AMK.
We shall decide at the end of the walk.

Bring water bottle, caps, umbrella and camera. Do wear comfortable walking shoes.

Look forward to your early registration!        😀  😀

Introducing a weekend of adventure at Khao Yai National Park, 10-12 Oct 2015

khaoyai nat parkmap      khao-yai-national-park

Some of you have joined me at Khao Yai National Park. This will be the first event dedicated to SilverHairsClub members and children, aged 26 and above. We intend to hold this exciting event in Oct, from a Friday to a Sunday.

Khao Yai is located some 1.5-2 hours north-east of the old Donmuang airport. It is ideally suitable for young adults, beautiful waterfalls in October, a good place to look out in its natural habitats for wild elephants, deers, junglefowls, Asian bears, and bird watching.

I plan to stay in tents, which we can buy on our own or rent from the National Park. We will arrange a cook to handle our dinners and breakfast. Ideally suited for members and their adult children.

For ourselves, there are grape plantations, where we can enjoy fresh grapes, juices, red and white wines. Also a good local beef steak.

There is adventure land, with horse riding, ATVS, rides. Our adult kids will enjoy time together, and they will find btheir own time to mingle with one another and get to know one another better. Car racing, and other trills which we used to enjoy when we were young. Bring your sons and daughters along. You have to make the effort.

Quietly located, Khao Yai air is fresh, the morning is cool and a good time to spend with family. Important our children can mix with other children.

Golf. Loves, we can play as the famous “Forest hill” golf course, where many tee offs start from a height. It’s easy.

I intend to make it easy, as we will have helpers to make our trip fun, enjoyable and meaningful.

This trip is for you and your adult children. Our plan is to arrive at the airport, and head straight for Khao Yai, 2 hours away.

Confirmed date:  Meet at DonMuang airport at 10am morning and 10am at Survanabhumi airport (if a group is formed) on Sat 10 Oct and we arrive back at Don Muang airport on Mon 12 Oct at about 5pm.  Others can proceed to Bangkok for other activities.

More details will come up. Express your interest here.

A walk along the rustic Changi Point coastline is not to be missed!
Changi Point provides a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of city life.

A charming boardwalk takes you through lush greenery and undulating terrain along the rugged
western coastline, while a meandering waterfront walkway along the eastern beachfront creates
an interesting tropical experience of sea and sand. Viewing decks and pavilions along the way
enable you to pause, soak in the sea breeze and enjoy the excellent views out at sea.

The Changi Point Coastal Walk is divided into six segments, each with its unique experience :
– Sunset Walk, has beautiful view of the sunset, hence its name
– Kelong Walk, reminisce the good old kelong days as you tramp on wooden stilts
– Cliff Walk takes you through the rugged western coastline
– Sailing Point Walk, enjoy views of the sailboats and the expanse of the sea
– Beach Walk, a relaxing coastal walk along sandy beaches, along the way pause, soak in the sea breeze and enjoy the views out to sea
– Creek Walk, appreciate the views, sights and sounds of the bumboat activities ferrying the public to and from the offshore islands.

At the end of the walk, those who wish to have dinner, there’s the Changi Village hawker centre where there are various food stalls,

Our Walk Team ECs: Christina CL Chan, Charles Wee, Mary Tan, Veronica Wong, Serene Low, Alice Seah, Jeffrey Lim, Azhari Cuttilan.
