  1. Doreen/Jeff,
    Direction to the place is not clear to me. Is it next to the Sports Complex along Bishan Street 14 and about 7 mins walk from from Bishan Mrt .

    • ok, Dolly,

      We will reserve a seat for Thomas Loh
      Appreciate if 4 of you, Caroline Gee, ANee, Thomas Loh and yourself could make payment


  2. Hi Doreen,
    Your paynow not working. Anyway, I dont want kena Ah Long keep chasing for payment so I had already make a internet transfer of $119 (which I had already wat apps thru screenshot) for the following attendees:

    4) David Ong
    5) Lilian Ong
    8) Caroline Gee
    9) Ah Nee
    10) Dolly Lim
    13) Thomas Loh
    and #) Richard Wong

    Kindly indicate paid against our names. The reason that I was not so unwilling to make payment first is that I am not sure whether this event will be on or cancel should the headcount is below what was expected. But you have given me the assurance that regardless of how many attendees, the show will be on. So I paid lor..

    Looking forward for this coming gathering… Cheers.. Dolly

    • Hi Dolly, you owe Doreen C an apology, for implying that she is “Ah Long”, exhorting you for money. What is wrong with an EO collecting money upfront? Our usual practice, isn’t it?

      If you are worried that the EO will cancel the event due to “not enough people”, the EO is equally worried that you cancel your participation due to “not enough money”. If every potential participant is waiting for the crowd to build up before paying, how to get the crowd?

      Unlike surreptitious gossiping where one can get away scot-free, every post here is subject to a response or retort, from all and sundry. For a change, why don’t you be the EO; doing a favour for all members and enjoying the pleasure of being “Ah Long”.

      An apology is needed and an apology is due, otherwise there is no reason for the EO to accept your participation.


  3. Hi Doreen,
    If apology is needed from me to you thru another person and that you have no reason to accept my participation owing to this, then, I will not attend this event.

    Whether you want or dont want to refund me, it is up to you.

    Regards… Dolly

  4. Hi Doreen/Dolly,

    Personally I view it as casual joking remark. After all, we are friends that know each other well enough. Lets take it as no issue and look forward to our enjoyment in this coming event.


  5. Hi Dolly,
    Miscommunication dear, small matter. In the event that there is not enough participants, I will top up with the minimium amount.
    Lets get together for a great time, and not to be bothered by small matters.
    AS Daniel quoted, it is the normal practice to pay in advance, as EOs normally have to bear the losses. As for myself, I like to pay up asap in case I forget.
    I am fairly absent minded myself.
    Cheers and looking forward to great times together.

    • Hi Dolly
      Thank you for being kind and helpful to pay for the 7 members
      I have given you the assurance that regardless of how many attendees, the show will go on
      As an EO, the difficult job is collecting money and balancing the account. It is a painstakingly thankless task

      Hi Daniel C
      I thank you for speaking your mind; not only for me but for all future EOs. I know you will not mince your words.

      Let us Relax, Smile and Move On
      ”JIA YU”
      Hope to see more members coming to join us
      Happiness is when you see others happy

      Doreen ????

      • BRAVO Doreen & Jeff !!
        You both had displayed good qualities being excellent EOs…. to bring UNITY and not ugly scenes to your event & your selfless top-up to LOSS ( if any ) then getting freebies out of organising events! For these gracious mindsets, u both deserved my due respect. I, THANK YOU both for your best efforts to organise this event to allow us to hv a get-together nite to njoy ourselves!

  6. Oops! Serious typo yet again. …
    THAN getting freebies, not Then getting !
    Pls dont digest it wrongly OK EOs , my fast fingers to blame, Heehee !! Cheers.

  7. If people who know Dolly, she loves fun loving people who can take what she dishes out with a pinch of salt. No pun intended. If there are those who like to poke their noses in events where they didn’t even register just to stir shit and leave a bad smell behind, then you don’t belong here cos we are here to have fun. Either they buay song cos they are so disliked or just so eng with no one to entertain them or have nothing better to do.
    Dolly is not new to the EOs so they should know her well. We support your event but guess you are not firm enough in your reply to comments of “outsiders” who did not even register. Very disappointed.
    Btw, when Dolly was organising events, many which i was lucky enough to attend, these people were not even here. So shut the hell up and don’t try to be kaypoh cos it just makes me want to puke, these people trying to be knights in shining armor, trying to rescue a damsel in distress. Sickening to the max if you ask me!

  8. Indeed, people who have not participated in the event or not going to an event have no business to talk about the event proper.

    However, every member who logs into this forum platform has every right to comment on what is posted here. Similar to newspaper forum pages, where many “kaypoh” and “busybody” speak their minds on matters concerning or not concerning them.

    Ah-Long is an unsavory term, suggesting intimidation or harassment. It is used to ridicule and embarrass. From Ah-Long to Wicked Witch, and from puke to other 4 letter words, nobody is lacking in such a vocabulary. There is a time and place for everything. No forum editor will allow such words to be published.

    If anybody chooses to dwell on personal attacks and not addressing the issue, then let us cease and desist, before puking becomes mutual.

    I thank everybody for their indulgence. I shall not stop giving my piece of mind, with neither fear nor favour, until and unless the administrator tell me to.


  9. Hi Daniel ,

    I agree with you that anybody can give comments to what is posted here, not necessarily the participants to any event.

    However I would like you to refrain from using “strong” words, like lecturing others.
    There are better ways to phrase a sentence, such that people will agree and accept.
    Just only my own opinion.

    Let’s close this chapter and move on.

    I am neutral to both.

    Cheer !


  10. Hi Stella,
    Thank you for your understanding.
    We are in the silver years, maybe golden years.
    We look forward to better ourselves and enjoy our silver/golden years ahead of us.
    I now look forward to 29th to catch up with our fellow SHC members for a great time ahead.
    Cheers and Enjoy!

  14. Doreen,

    Cheers and all the best.
    Jeffrey Gan
