SHC May monthly gathering, Fri 5 May 2017

Our last few monthly gathering was organised by Daniel Chan. it was held at Hans Cafe at the basement of Chinatown point.

We shall now try another location, away from the buzz of working people and shoppers. We make effort to keep to somewhere near the train station so that members working in various part of Singapore can get here conveniently after work. Food and drinks, we go for variety and choice. Seats plentiful, as this venue is crowded during working hours. So, here it is, details of our May monthly gathering. Strictly for SHC members.

Date: Fri 5 May 2017
Time: 1700 – 2030 hours
Venue: Asia SquareTower 1 Food court, level 2,
Marina View, Asia square, Singapore 018960
Near train: Downtown DT 17

If you have been there, please recommend an area to meet. If you have a special interest, do highlight here so that others know you are coming. You may introduce yourself here before coming, to make the gathering more fun.

The monthly gathering aims to provide a platform for members to meet new and old SHCians. Please register your coming.

  1. The date for the next monthly gathering is now set for Fri 5 May 2017. It will be at the Asia Square food court on level 2. Nearest train station: DT17.

    If you like to meet up with fellow members with interest to go on your next holiday trip, please let us know your plans here so that others can join you.

    If you like to chit chat on the new Samsung Galaxy S8 after buying one, and you need some help. Well, you just got to tell us your problems, and maybe someone might be able to show you how during the gathering.

    Many SHCians, at our age, are busy with our grandchildren, bringing them to school and facing the same issues we face with our children, do get together and share time together. You will find common things to talk about.

    Shy, not so sure how to get started with dancing? We have plenty of dancers in the Club. And plenty of non-dancers too. There are the social dancing queens and kings. Mind you, not to forget the line dancers too. Tell us your interest here, or you may be sitting down quietly at the foodcourt all alone, waiting for another non-dancer to say hello.

    For those who can sit down for hours playing mahjong, but sometimes, short of one kaki, well, you just got to yell on this post. But, if you keep quiet, no one will know.

    I cant believe it; but there are so many members who make the last minute decision to go into JB for massage, lobsters, a nice lunch or even a quick shopping trip, and of course, if you are not planning to go alone, here is the place. Tell us your escape routes, and you may find others meeting you when you arrive in this city north of singapore.

    I may have run short of ideas, but if you have ideas on how to make the monthly gathering more exiting, this is the place.

    Finally, our club rules require no discussion on politics, race, religion and direct selling.

    Have fun.

  2. Asia Square Food Court is a good choice of venue for a gathering as it is very spacious. Love the ambience there. However, generally the food there is slightly more expensive than other food courts.
    I will be there but for a short while as I shall be going to the Esplanade Waterfront for a free concert featuring songs of the yesteryears. Hopefully I can cabot early from work.
    I shall put up the post on this free concert when I have more details.

  3. I am adjusting my May travel schedule. It is likely I may miss the SilverHairsClub May monthly gathering.

    In the meantime, I have asked Stella Sheng to be the co-EO on 5 May 2017. Event is on, and I look forward to your participation at Asia Square Tower 1.

    Plse register your attendance.

  6. Hi Terence / Stella , please register the ” giraffe ” Steven Chan for the May 5th meeting.
    Congratulations to Stella for being appointed as co E.O. I will fully support you at this event. However I have to leave by 7pm to Pasir Ris to join midnight tour @ Pasir Panjang Wholesale market n later to Jurong Fisheries Port . Looking forward to meeting old n new Shc members.

  7. Hi Stella/Terence
    Please register me for the event.
    As a matter of interest, those who are keen to play or to learn a board game called RUMMY-O, I shall liaise for the interest group which meet regularly at a CC. The use of the spacious room is free and all chats are communicated through a WHATS-APP.
    It has been claimed that the game can enhance the wellness of the brain and reduce the onslaught of dementia.

  27. TQ Stella for hosting the May SilverHairsClub monthly gathering.

    I looking forward to reading feedback on Asia Square Food Garden as the venue for future monthly gatherings.

    How to make this venue more convenient for members? What are the comments on food, space and ease of social networking?

    Members who have new ideas, you may like to be the next EO. Do get in touch with me.

    Also, Jazz Soh has created a short video of the evening event. You can enjoy it in the main post.

  28. Hi Stella n Terence ,

    T hank goodness we finally found a suitable place with a pleasant green surrounding non smoking food court at Asia Towers.

    I give compliment to the one who recommended this favourable food court.

    Unlike the other 2 venues you have to talk very loudly to be heard . The loudest noise WINS. Ha ha.

    Why is my comment always MODERATED despite being a permanent member ?

    Admin please CLARIFY. THANKS.
    Steven Chan

  30. Many thanks and credit to our professional photographer who took good clear photos of our meeting.

    And also to post the beautiful photos as a memory of our events will follow this way of presentation.

    I hope this May Gathering Meeting be set as a precedent for future events to follow.

    My personal view but you may choose to differ .

    Steven Chan

  31. Yes, Stella, you have been a great EO for this monthly gathering, glad that I attended. Looking forward for another EO event from you soon…
    Cheers… Dolly

  32. Hi StevenC,

    Re your query as to why your comments go into moderation.

    Our SilverHairsClub forum treats every member the same. It does not differentiate StevenC from StevenD. Honestly, I don’t know why. When our forum was first started, some criteria had been set. Outside the approved criteria, the comments and also Posts go into moderation.

    I have no intention to relook into the whys. 99% of members comments go through as swiftly as a breeze. Comments under moderation may be published at a later time. Others stay in the bin forever.

    Please be reminded the SilverHairsClub forum is a moderated site. It is a Club for all members.

  33. Time flies. Half of 2017 is almost gone. Thank you Terence,  for giving me the opportunity to be EO. I have attended many events and functions organised by SHC and for SHC. It is only fair that I do my part to serve others. 

    Being an EO is no easy job, even when there is no money collection. I was worried no one would register. Then I worried whether those who registered would turn up, and how many would turn up without registering.

    It leaves me to thank each and every one who was present at Asia Square on May 5th. It was a wonderful meeting. We chatted on anything that came to our mind. Some left early for the Esplanade while others stayed on.

    A picture tells a thousand words. So I leave it to Terence and members to look at the pictures and derive their own opinion about the place. Personally, I like it.

    Till we meet again, take care and have a safe and pleasant journey for the second half of 2017. For a change, I think we should have a gentleman to be the next EO. 

    Best regards

    • Well said Stella.

      I like the place too. Spacious and comfortable. Easy to get to. Not noisy so we don’t have to speak at the top of our voice to be hear. But I have a built-in stereo so I speak loud – no matter where.
