  1. Hi Terence,

    I have checked with Jeffrey pertaing to the permit. According to him a permit is not required if it is run by a private group like Silverhairs Club.

    To meet the requirement no percentage of the collection must go to the club and all the pool monies must be paid out. Jeffrey has done the Tombola session on a few ocassion without any issue.

    We will play safe by checking with the relevant authority or perhaps our legal counsel Tim would care to shed some light on this?


  2. Hi Dan,

    Thank you for the clarification. My position is if you are organising a Tombola night, under the name of SilverHairsClub, I am afraid I am not able to give you any approval.

    However, I would leave the activity to you and JeffreyG, if it is a private event, organised by both of you.

    Terence Seah

  3. Dan, my forte is in corporate and shipping laws

    I am not familiar with the legislations (complicated by subsidiary legislations which might contain exemptions) governing lotteries and wagers, which are regulated, and the relevant licences/[permits issued, by the CID.

    Nevertheless, my gut feel is that tombola comes under “private lotteries” so do do it safe by checking with the CID.

    The CID can be reached at 68350000. Ng Boon gay has just left but you dont hv to reach him.

    I can however assure all that the buying of the CID numbers in any 4-D combination isnt an offence and wont require a permit but you will have to buy from the Spools, not from ah lian or ah loong son.

    I hv a strong hunch that the numbers will take pride of place in 2day and tomorrow’s 4-D draws. Start the year rich.

  4. Hi Terence,

    This Tombola Nite will be held under the auspices of the Silverhairs Club and not by Jeffrey and me. Never have I ever organise any activities or event for my own gain. I have not ever made a single cent from any of these activities but rather put in my time and effort.

    If there is any issue with getting a permit, I will wash my hands and suspend the event!


  5. Dan, relac lah.

    You have always been a keen organiser of events and have put up many successful ones for many to emulate. You’re also an ardent supporter of activities organised by other EOs.

    However, if there’s the smallest of hints that there may be a possibility of infraction of some laws/regulations, we will need to be safe and sure. We need to look at the bigger picture. That must be Sengh’s concern; no insinuation shd be read in there.

    SHC has been around for some years now. We are watched. Despite the fact the we arent a registered entity, they let us grow. The reason is simple : let this group of ah laos look after themselves. They are relieved and spared the resources from taking care of a 3,000+ strong group.

    However, this Tombolo Nite is published for all to read. Its date and venue are given.

    Thus, if a permit is required but wasnt applied for, anyone jealous of the SHC success story might tip the mata kuching and they will be duty bound to come and join in the tombola. It will be turned into a humtam bola. The possibility of it happening, however remote, is a ta’ boleh.

    Do call and find out from the Licensing Section. And we will all be wiser the call after.

    Off to my gallop now…………

  6. Dear Dan

    I have been reading the above blog. Dont mind me just giving my two cents’ worth of comments.

    You have been such a wonderful and responsible EO all this time and many of us have benefitted from your good work albeit voluntary and no $ earned. You have earned the respect and love of many SHCians in your role as EO for so many functions.

    It would be a great loss if you decide not to remain an EO cos of the above. I fully understand Terence’s concern as he is the ‘Boss’ of SHC. He is actually protecting everyone as he is afraid that SHC may have to close down in the event of a police raid etc. The participants may even be arrested.

    I would say that most of us enjoy the karaoke and dancing more than anything else. Whether tombola or bingo is included or not, this makes no difference to most participants. We are at Jeff’s studio more for the fun of karaoke, dancing, fellowship and enjoying ourselves … getting to know each other, sharing in a common interest.

    Hence, I really hope that the karaoke and dancing on 29 Jan can carry on. Hope you’ll remain as the EO for this event.

    Thank you Dan and all organisers.


  7. Hi Dan/Terence

    Further to my note above, perhaps the event can be changed to “Singing and Dancing the Night Away”..come and feel young again! kekeke………….


  8. Hi Gabriella, Tim, Dan,

    Thank you for your feedback.

    As to what will replace the evening, I am sure Dan and Jeffrey will come up with something. Have fun.

    Terence Seah

  9. Hi Tim,

    Thanks for the link to the Licensing Section.

    Gariella, it such an encouragement to hear from you and we have taken on your suggestion.

    Terence, as for the idea of Tombola Nite, I was just using a high sounding name to inject life and novelty to the Club. Bingo and Tombola are the same with slight variation and involving the use of a revolving drum to churn out number. If Tombola is an issue why have we not heard any thing mentioned when we had the Karoeke and Bingo Nite.

    Getting a permit is never a problem, I just need to drive down to the Police headquarter in Cantonment Road to get it. Sometimes I wish you would have more faith in me.

    Well folks, here we are, get ready for another enchanting night at Selegie Road. Now got to rush for my bedminton at 11.00-1.00pm today!


  10. Hi Dan#11

    Thank you, thank you. I’m happy that all’s well that ends well.

    Pl count me in for your dancing and singing on 29.1.11. Thank you once again Dan for being so sporting and has agreed to being the EO once again. Keep up the good work.. Kudos to DAN!

    Looking forward to another night of fun, dance and songs!


  11. Hi Dan,Jeffery & Irene,

    You have all done a great job in organising events for SHC!

    Please count me and my wife (Peggy) in. We can now look forward to another fun and enjoyable evening.

    Thank you.


  12. Hi Dan, Jeffery & Irene,

    I am sorry that I have overlook that this event clashes with SHC dancing class which is held every Saturday evening. As myself and my spouse have enrolled for the class, we will have to miss this event, which we woud very much like to attend. Is it possible to change it to a Friday evening???


  13. Hi Jeremy, Peggy,

    We have not met, perhaps on a Friday night would be better. Let be get the general consensus and revert. I know it pretty near to Chinese New Year and many will have lot of things to attend to.

    Keep your fingers crossed!


  14. Dan,

    I’m very sorry about my oversight. Yes, we have not met. I look forward to meeting you.

    Do let me know if the event can be held on a Friday evening.

    Thank you for your kind consideration.


  15. We will most likely change the date to a Friday instead of Saturday. So far Jeffrey, Irene, Richard and Jane are okay with the change of date. We need to hear if Gabriella is okay before I change the post.


  16. Hi Dan,
    Yes I would very much like to join the event if it is held on Fri or Sun, because about 20 over of us are attending the SHC dancing classes on Sat nite. Cheers..

  17. Hi Dan #18

    Friday, 28 Jan or Sunday 30 Jan is OK for me, although I’ll be slightly late on Friday. Nonetheless, it’s fine. Just carry on.

    Thanks Dan for your consideration.


  18. Hi Dan,

    Yes, I should be able to come, if it’s held on a Friday, either 21st or 28th Jan. So there will not be anymore bingo? It’s ok with me. I would prefer to have a dance workshop… and lots of singalong.

    Cheers …….lydia.

  19. Do note that this event is now held on a Friday night on January 28, 2011. The cost is $10.00 and includes two soft drinks and finger foods and free wines!


  20. Dear Dan/Jeffrey/Irene

    Aiya sorry I have to miss this event. I know its going to be another night of fun and good company.

    Its so near to CNY, I have lots of cleaning, baking and cooking to do. Scalp itchy also no time to scratch!

    Next time lah, if it does not clash with my other appointments.

    You guys have fun!


  21. Dear Caroline #23

    We’ll surely miss you, the ‘live wire’ for the karaoke and dancing night.

    Aiyo, sure you dowan come? Leave the baking, cleaning and cooking to another day lor.


  22. Hi dear Caroline#23

    Relax, Have a break, I’m sure you are not going to clean,bake etc the whole day, afterall this is an evening function, as Gabriella Chua said,come and be the ‘LiveWire.’

    You will have the whole Sat n Sun to continue yr baking…etc….

  23. Hi Dan/Jeff.

    Sorry, I have to withdraw from this event. I sprained my right foot yesterday, and it is swollen and extremely painful when I walk. And definitely cannot climb stairs. Or even dance for some time. When I recover, will definitely be back for more action..!

    You guys enjoy…!

    Regards, LydiaC.

  24. Dear Peggy

    Thanks but you dont know how many pcs of cookies and cakes I have to bake. Cleaning is no problem cos I only do the finishing touches as my sister helps me with the major cleaning – she loves to clean and I really detest doing house cleaning.

    I have to bake over 1000 pcs of each type of cookies and almost twenty pcs of marble cakes – this number is just family’s cos I have many sisters and they have married children so each household one share. Apa macam. I am still struggling with grating and cooking the pineapple 🙁

    You all enjoy lah!

    Oh dear Lydia. Were you chasing after some dude? Sorry jus kidding. Take care and get well soon.


  25. Hi Jeffrey #32,

    Please request Mrs Lim to contact admin@
    silverHairsClub re membership.

    For future registration, may I suggest you do not register on behalf of any person whom you are not sure is a SHC member. It is better you let them register on their own. It will save us some work checking.
