    • James, very nice of you to kickstart the registration. It is always difficult to kmow if an event will be successful, who will come and how to make the event meaningful to the members who will turn up.

      But, I am always confident that members who have time, and like to meet other SHCians will come join us.

      Everytime, I see you, I think of dancing and turtle soup. You have always good ideas.

  1. For understanding, any registration for participation in any EO events will always be placed in the registration. I may not reply, but the registration will be acknowledged in the registration list.

  2. This Mar gatherimg, I thought it would ne nice to celebrate the birthdays of members borned in March. It is strange that even at our age, many of us are still shy to reveal our birthdate. Doesn’t really matter whether male or female.

    Tell us, if you are a March baby boomer. I will have a big cheese cake to celebrate this occasion during our Mar gathering. I have also prepared two candles; one for each cake.

    No shy. The club does not keep your birthdate as part of registration. Everyone is 45. So, I look forward to you sharing your birthday wishes, and in turn we sing you the birthday song.

    Terence Seah

  3. Terence,
    Should you say you have a birthday gift for me, I’ll whisper
    in your ear my birthdate hehe

    I love the month of March, the month of my birth!
    You asked… so here I share
    my advance birthday wishes for my friends and I….
    “A year full of fun, excitement, filled with joy and laughter;
    Forget what’s behind; focus on what is ahead;
    That we will always have a reason to rejoice;
    Be glad, Be kind and at peace with one another”.

    and Terence may serenade me the birthday song, in Thai also can haha

    As I will be away, will claim my slice of cheese cake when I next meet you 😀
    Forget not, hor.

  4. Payment $15 received from StellaS and MariaT.

    Payment $45 received from SusanCH for herself, Peri and Ann.


  5. Next Sat 17 Mar, we shall have an afternoon tea, for our Club gathering. The hotel will prepare a few local dishes, desserts, coffee and tea. For those who have been here before, you would know this is a cosy place for a SilverHairsClub gathering.

    Add to this, a fellow member has organised music to accompany a dance afternoon. Jayleen hotel has a great sound system, so I am sure dancers can rock the afternoon.

    Please make your payment to our Teasurer to secure a place.

    A SilverHairsClub members event.

  6. Terence,
    Kindly register me since I was told that cycling had been rescheduled. Will transfer $15 soonest possible. Thank you and cheers.. Dolly

  7. The Sat 17 Mar 2018 program is out.

    When you arrive, please write your first and last name on the registration list. To encourage moving around, a member can seat anywhere, anytime, if the seat or sofa is empty. No chopping with tissue, or handbags.

    The tea dish set, coffee and tea starts the moment you arrive. Make yourself at home and you can chat the whole afternoon.

    2 – 4pm – Dancing starts.
    4 – 4.30pm – Line Dancing.
    4.30 – 6pm – Karaoke. Singers to bring own disc.

    Strictly for registered and paying SHC members only. We will close at 40 pax.

  8. Glad that our registration is moving up.

    I like to request to listen to this song which is posted at the top of this event on the 17 Mar 2018 monthly gathering.

    If you bring the music disc, and you sing this song during the karaoke segment, the Club shall offer the first singer of this song $15. Hope this is a refreshing idea and that this will allow enough time for some practice. Look forward eagerly.

    Terence Seah

    • Haha Terence. Which song do u want to hear? Initially it was Massachusetts by Bee Gees. But last night, I noticed the song has been changed to Wang shi zhi neng hui wei …. !

      By the way, is there someone to man the karaoke system? Or is it “free flow”…?

  9. Unlike social dance, line dancers are usually notified of the dances ahead of the jam in order that we can do some refreshing of the steps at home. You will see better participation there as we are well-prepared for the dances as there are 1001 dances for us to guess otherwise if there is no dance list.

    Rather than go there and make some dance request on the spot, can I put a dance list here for everybody to see and prepare themselves? Cos it’s more fun to see a bigger group dancing when line dancers are confident of their steps.

    Thank you.

  10. Hi SusanT,

    Re song sequence for Line dancing, we should make the segment enjoyable for line dancers. Meantime, share what you have in mind.

    I am no Line Dancer, so definitely we shall listen and adjust accordingly. Please suggest.

    Terence Seah

    • This is the dance list – I’ve chosen easy stress-free dances so everybody can come down to the floor and stomp together:

      Electric Slide
      Khoo Kaat
      One Step Forward
      Honky Tonk Stomp
      Cowboy Cha Cha

      Waltz Across Texas
      Silver Thread
      Tango with the Sheriff
      Rock around the clock
      Chillie cha cha/Magic cha cha

      Sweet Joana
      Vertical Expression
      Red Hot Salsa
      Come Dance with Me

  11. Hi StellaS,

    As we are holding this event in a hotel, we have always issues with corkage charges. I am sure some wine wil help loosen the atmosphere. For the moment, based on our discussions with hotel, we should not bring wine or liquor to the venue.

    Like all members, we are looking forward to a relaxing and pleasant afternoon. Let’s keep it this way.

    Terence Seah

  12. Dear Attendees,
    I can help to print a simple name card for those that needed them, please reply here your First and Last Name here. I will get these printed and give to you on the day of the meeting.

    After that, you can keep these name card for the next and/or future monthly gathering meeting lor..

    As I do not logon frequently, hence, I will have the cut off date for this request on 15 March 2018 2359 hours…

    Cheers.. Dolly

  13. Hi fellow SHCians,

    I have lost my mobile phone last night, and am hunting for a replacement. Meantime, no Whatsapp, only communication via this forum.

    SusanT, can you arrange to put the LINE dance songs into a USB or disc? We have 30 mins. I am not sure if USB can be used, but think about it first.

    Terence Seah

  14. Hi Terence & Christina,

    Please register myself, Catherine Yeo & Wong Hong Jeng.

    My friend, Jennifer Lim (a new SHC member) would like to attend this event. However, she noticed that registration is already closed at full house of 40 pax. Can you kindly put her on waiting list? She’s a new member and this will be her first time attending an SHC event, and she was looking forward to attending. Pls advise if you can put her on waiting list?

  26. This month, the Club shall start to celebrate the birthdays of members. I am not sure how members will react. But it does appear to me that most members are shy when it comes to birthdays and birth dates. Everybody is 45. We wont check your ID.

    Sometime, during this afternoon, we shall bring out two cheese cakes and 1 candle each. They have been made by Susan Tan CH’s son.

    We will announce the event time this afternoon. Lets gather together, and hopefully all March boys and girls will come up quickly. We will sing the global birthday song, cut the cake and let us give it a go.

    If the above goes well, we will do so for some future monthly gatherings.

    Terence Seah

  27. Our monthly gathering at Jayleen Hotel had a good turnout. The event met our Club”s expectation by providing a platform for SHCians to meet and discuss their interests. Such gatherings suits likeminded members.

    Ronald Lee provided the music with his talent with his computer sound system. Judging from floor response, the music brought guys and gals dancing on the limited dance area. Guess time was never enough. RonaldL is a one-man musician; and he is absolutely agile with connecting the various ends of the cables to bring us music. Thank you RonaldL.

    The singing Karaoke segment started with Jennifer Lim singing this gathering theme song. and accompanied by Lydia Chin. Personally, I was impressed by the confidence and entertainment displayed. Thank you for singing this song. I appreciate it.

    The thought of a monthly gathering with food and music advanced to an other level with birthday celebrations for our March babies. Gee, we had 4 March babies. Susan Tan CH offered to make two cheese cakes, to be designed and baked by her son. With two candles each, Susan lead this segment, with a bright Happy Birthday song by RonaldL. Thank you SusanT for bringing this creative cheese cakes to the gathering.

    There are more people in the background who had helped to make this event run smoothly. Thank you very much.
