SHC monthly gathering Fri 13 Sep 2019 mid Autumn festival

Hi SilverHairsClub members,

For many of us, some 30-40 years ago, many of us were young adults. Some of us were at a romantic stage of our lives.

Although not a public holiday, we know when the moon cake festival is here. We wait for the full moon to bloom at its brightest. Our parents taught us not to point out 1st index finger at the moon. And we get to enjoy moon cakes.

Perhaps you have your version of how the moon cake festival existed. But definitely the same mid autumn festival is a romantic day each year. Now that we are in our fifties, sixties and seventies, we can still be romantic, in love with memories of our younger days.

This year, we shall again celebrate the moon cakes cum mid Autumn festival.

Here’s the planning details.

* Date: Fri 13 Sep 2019

* Time: 1700 -1830 hr at Ground floor,  1830 to 2230 hr at roof top.

* Venue: Jayleen 1918 hotel (roof top),

42 Carpenter St, Singapore 059921. Nearest MRT: Clarke Quay. Cross the overhead bridge to Carpenter street.  Car Park $1.50 per hr, after 5pm.

* Music: Chinese evergreen, musician and keyboard accompanied.

* F&B: Buffet dinner.

* Dress: Appropriate, light and breezy.

* Cost: $28 per pax (early bird paid before 31 Aug 2019.  $30 after 31 Aug 2019).
Non- member price $35 per pax. As this is an Anniversary celebration, we shall make an exception: extend payment to be made by 05Sep for S$28/per pax for members; after 05Sep will be S$30, no further extension. Payment to a/c Chris Chan POSB Savings Acct 542-10756-1.
* Liquor: You may bring your own wine, beer or whisky if you like. No corkage charge.

* Dress: to suit the festival.

Be a part of the thinking and planning process. I look forward to your ideas and suggestions.

  1. The SEP 2019 mthly gathering will be held on Fri 13 SEP 2019. This is also the mid autumn festival, and for many of us, this is also moon cake eating time. But for me, this day is very romantic. I remembered when young, we quickly finished work after 5pm, have dinner and wait to see the big bright moon. Altho no girlfriend, at that time, the mid autumn festival has always been a romantic time. I focused my eye sharply at the moon, and visualising the face we see each night.

    We have programmed the evening to have Chinese classic music, played by a musician on his keyboard. Very likely, food will be catered. So, make a date to join this mthly gathering. We will have a paper lantern for the 1st 50 registered members.

    The monthly gathering aims to bring SilvrHairs together, meeting new ones and catching up with old ones. As we get older, knowing a set of friends with similar interests is key to keeping an active life circle.

    Keep your ideas coming in.

    To make this occasion, i shall arrive Singapore on 12 Sept, and leave on 14 SEP 2019.

  2. We have now confirmed the venue for our mid Aug festival monthly gathering at Jayleen 1918 hotel (rooftop).

    Our cost is $30 per pax. This will include a buffet dinner at the roof top. The cost of musician is a contribution from a fellow member

    For those who register before and pay before 31 Aug, the early bird price is $28 per pax.

    Those who wish to bring their own whisky, beer or wine my do so, without corkage charge.

  3. I am very pleased we have some very senior and new faces coming to our SEP gathering and 15 th anniversary celebration. I note members are pulling in other members, despite other interesting events going on during this mid Autumn fest night.

    I need some help for someone to buy or make a cake, say 1 kg and bring to the event. Club will pay for the cake. This is for celebrating our 15th birthday.

    Ideas are welcome.
