“One night in Batam” 2D 1N Sat 30 Jun – 1 Jul 2018

SilverHairsClub and members have organised a series of “One night Dinner and Dancing” with themes set in Taipei, Shanghai and JB. These activities help support a platform for members to get to know more and new friends.

This year, we had planned to hold our Dinner and Dance with the theme “One night in Batam”. We are able to create this event when Christine Teo, a keen dancer, volunteered to co-EO the dancing night, together with two days of sightseeing, lunches, shopping and a dinner at the M1 Hotel.

We will theme our event with Batam Indonesian culture and tradition. Members are encouraged to attire Indonesian style. Your room is just a lift away.

There are plans for music for dancing from disk/USB. We have a VJ in place, not karaoke or live singing.

A team of members BobbyB, ChristineP, DaisyY, YeoES, StellaS joined a recce event on Sun 10 Jun. We review the 10th floor of M1 hotel, surrounded by glass top to bottom, with a breezy view of the nearby area. This venue is bare, and will be redeveloped into a roof top restaurant in July. Christine has arranged for some seating out the glass walls so that a few of us can enjoy some moments of quiet, during dancing and dinner time.

The rooms are new and well set with clean bright bathrooms. The recce group love the M1 hotel.

Venue: M1 Hotel.
Dinner and dance venue: M1 hotel 10 floor

    Strictly for those on the registered list only. Strictly TEXT chat only. No URL, Pictures, videos.
