Potluck Picnic at the Park – Saturday 19th May 2012

(This activity is in conjuction with May’s Monthly
Gathering.)

Dear fellow SHCians,

I have not organized any activity for quite some time and hopefully (crossing my fingers), some members will find the time, the day and the date of this Potluck Picnic convenient for them to join. My thanks to Dan Huang and Charles Chua for making the trip with me to recce the park on Monday 30th April’s morning. We have unanimously agreed on an excellent spot that is near the main road, bus stop and toilet facility. There is a sort-of shelter from the heat but not from the rain, lots of benches, grassy ground, trees and a lovely view of the cleaned-up Kallang River.

In my previous thread I received offers of help in provision of food and transportation from some members. I am very grateful for their kindness.

Details of this activity are as follow:-

  • E.O.s– Rosalind Lee, Dan Huang & Charles Chua
  • Day/Date    : Saturday 19th May 2012
  • Time           : 3.30 pm – 6.00 pm
  • Venue         : Meeting Point 2, Kallang Riverside Park
  • Map    : http://www.streetdirectory.com/asia_travel/travel/travel_id_19398/travel_site_1/

Meeting Point 2 is at the spot nearest to the pedestrian bridge linking the park to Crawford Street. If you look at the map, it is at the bottom left. There is a toilet facility near the spot we’re to meet.

What to Bring

  1. Yummy food or hot/cold drinks or disposable paper plates/cups/refuse bags. 
  2. A mat or plastic sheet if you prefer to sit on the grassy patches. 
  3. Foldable deck chairs if you have your own mode of transport.
  4. Hats/Caps/Umbrellas in case it rains…..:p

Members who are keen to join this activity will get to enjoy a relaxing afternoon picnicking with other members and taste the various dishes made/cooked/bought amidst serene surroundings.

Please register early stating what type of food you’ll be bringing. Kindly refrain from duplicating the same dish a member has already offered to bring (except for drinks/fruits).

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

    Cheers
    Ros

  6. Hi Rosalind,

    Thank you for organising, I wish I can join in the FUN and the yummy food, but this date coincide with the monthly cycling event. Ivan just reminded me of the date clash and possibly, the cycling will shit to morning. In any case I won’t be able to participate as I have a wedding reception in the morning and dinner in the evening.

    Sam huat huat huat(Safekeeper of the SHC Banner)….”mai tiam tiam chor kang hor”, time to relax relax and enjoy your favourite curry chicken. oh yes, don’t forget to bring along the SHC banner for nice shots / scenic picture okay…

    Ah Nee

  7. Sorry for the word “shit”, should be “shift”. hahaha…lunch time now lah.

    Ah Nee

  8. Ros, I can do lor bak and bring some white rice along. Goes very well with the chicken curry from the Secret contributor. However, I have a sudden family commitment – let’s wait and hope it will not clash.

  9. Ros Dear

    YES! Please register Dolly, Lily and Caroline for the picnic.

    And Xiao Di, yes I hear you shouting for cup cakes but cannot put butter cream leh because of our weather.

    Will probably bring cup cakes or some kuih muih.

    Cheers
    Carly

  10. Rosalind,

    Please go ahead and correct the text breaks, and start the registration process.

    While my schedule is rather tight, i shall make effort to come, shall know next week. I am learning how to make smooth Tau Huay.

    Terence Seah

  11. Hi Rosalind,

    Annie Tan and me would like to join your potluck picnic cum Dan’s monthly gathering. We will make sushi.

  12. Hi there Ros

    I’ll be out of town that weekend. Sorry. Have fun though.

    Cheers
    Daisy

  13. Hi Rosalind,

    Please include me and I will bring disposable cups, plates, forks & spoons and refuse bags. Thanks….

    Janie

  14. I cant find Meeting Point 2 on the Map. (I can only find Meeting Point 3).

  15. #14 Li Li,

    Please refer to the post where I have edited and clarify where the spot of our picnic will be held. My apologies.

    Cheers
    Ros

  16. Calling Caroline….. save a cupcake for me. I am coming. Any chance of an English Carrot Cake – no need cream-cheese icing?

    Hi Ros, Dan & Charles, Thanks for organising. I will bring Brown-Rice Vegetarian BeeHoon.

    Winnie

  17. Hi Li Li,

    From the map when you come out from Lavendar MRT pass the ICA Building and look for Crawford St, walk along the river and pass Southbank condo. You will spot a pedestrian bridge, cross the bridge you will see a shelter area where Meeting Point 2 is.

    There is only bus service 100 with a stop along Crawford St. If you stop at kallang MRT, the walk is slightly longer. Hope I dun confuse anybody here.

    Dan

  18. Yes I hear you Winnie.

    Cup cakes no cream still nice but Ang Mo carrot cake must have cream cheese topping otherwise no kick lah. We were suppose to have tea one day but still not done yet. Will make for you when you have tea at a later date k?

    Cheers
    Carly

  19. Hi Li Li
    I wd like to go but not sure of the way. Would you like to meet me at Lavendar MRT station and we go together?

    Hi Rosalind & Dan

    I wd like to join in if I can find my way there.
    Will wait for reply from Tan Li Li.

    Thanks & cheers,
    Gabriella

  20. No worries Gabriella.
    I can wait for you & others @ Lavendar MRT Control Tower.
    Shall we meet at 3pm?
    Winnie

  21. Hi Winnie #21

    So sweet of you dear ~ Ok let’s meet at 3 pm at Lavendar MRT control station.

    Cheersssssssssss

    Warmest regards,
    Gabriella

  22. Hi Rosalind & Dan

    Regards,
    Gabriella

  23. Hi Rosalind

    Hi Gabriella, Li Li, Winnie
    I am not familiar with the area so I will show up at Lavender MRT at 3pm looking lost. Wait for me please? Thanks much.

    Sue Tan

  24. Hi Ros
    sound fun. would like to join but have wedding to attend after work…next time ya

  25. Hi Ros,

    Include me in the fun. I’ll bring fruits.

    Hey Winnie and Gabriella,

    I’ll meet you at Lavender MRT at 3pm.

  26. Aiyah Rosalind Lee,
    I have to withdraw from the potluck picnic. My WEC BBQ falls on the same day. I’m in the committee and I have to be there.
    So sorry about this.
    Some other time perhaps. You all have a good time.

  27. Dear Ros

    My thousand apologies. I have to withdraw cos my daughter needs my help at the market’s stall as she has two events for that day. One in the morning n another in the evening so will have to miss cycling too.

    Regards
    Carly

  28. Oh, oh!

    Looks like Mary’s banana has crumbled! And there’s no more kueh-mueh to look forward to from Caroline. Top that with the disappearing lor bak from Susan and I can’t help but withdraw my planned participation…

    Maybe better call Tian Soo to go to Jalan Bersih for shark and turtle soup!

  29. Hello Sue (#25),
    Welcome, welcome. I will look out for you at Lavendar MRT Station – Control Tower – 3pm. Looking forward to your Kueh Salat. Yum, yum.

  30. Hi Sue #25

    C u at Lavendar MRT station at 3 pm. on that day.

    Cheerssssssssssssss

  31. Dear all who responded,

    Thank you so much for looking at my post and giving your comments. I appreciate your interest in the topic regardless of whether you’ll be attending or not.

    Thanks to all who wants to join in the picnic. I’d love a small group but if Dan wants this event to be SHC’s May monthly meeting then I reckon this might be the smallest group of members in a monthly meeting! :p

    Whatever it is, rain or shine we’ll hold the picnic. I’ll pray for good weather ideal for our event.

    Cheers
    Ros

  32. As usual this an initiative by the members for the members, All are invited to attend where opportunity abounds to make new friend and bond with the old.

    We missed having a monthly gathering in April. Good to have it differently this time at the park. Terence and the guitarists will be there to entertain us.

    Ten more days to go, those of you who indicated your preferences in the various board games may take this opportunity to come and find members who share with you similar interest here.

    And…..Kenneth must you have a very good reason to attend beside the foods?

    Dan

  33. Hi there Kenneth Tan (#30),
    My fried Vegetarian Bee Hoon is something you must not miss lah, if good food is what you are looking for. No gluten – only fresh vegetables are used. Must come, after all the trouble I take to cook for you. I see you have a sweet tooth. If you come, I will bake you a special fruit cake – a yummy rum & whisky fruitcake. How’s that? Still want to go for your Turtle Soup?
    BR win

  34. Hi Ros, Sorry to keep in suspense for so long but now I can confirm going. Khong bak, lor bak, lor neng and chinese bun to make it complete – will happily do so. See la, got good mood might add more things in the potpourri. Plus white rice for the carbo people!

    Cheers!

  35. oh forgot can the ladies group congregating at Lavender MRT pl include me for the rendezvous at 3.00 pm?

  36. Hi Sue,
    Sure thing. The more the merrier. See you at Lavendar MRT Control Tower – 3pm. Looking forward to seeing you.
    Cheers, win

  37. Dear members who registered,

    I shall contribute my fruit punch which is a mystery ingredient challenge…

    And I know who the secret contributor of chicken curry is… he’s afraid of getting sued if eating the curry makes you run…

  44. And Rosalind, Dan,

    I am coming to the Potluck and monthly gathering, and with my guitar. I need to show off the new toy, and I look forward to all beginners and experienced ones coming together for a beginners’ jam.

    Ros

  64. Dear all,

    Heng ah, you wonderful people can still post….with so many other members’ posting their activities, etc…this thread kana push down to dunno where. Need to type ‘Potluck’ in the search box then can find it.

    If any of you are reading this and attending the picnic, please bring along an umbrella (for hot sun or rain lor). If you have a foldable plastic mat, it’ll be great for sitting on the grass as there are limited park chairs there. Arbo gotto squat….:p Foldable chairs are a hassle to bring so the best is a mat or a piece of cloth where you can rest your butts…:p

    Picnics are fun but we must all be prepared for a-n-t-s! The guys can stomp the ants to death but we should be pretty safe if we choose our spot to picnic carefully.

    There is a canopy that’s covered with flowering plants on the exposed roof. Not that great a shelter for rain but for hot sunny afternoons, it is perfect!

    Enough loh loh soh soh…see you guys!

    Cheers
    Ros

  65. Hi Ros, Dan and Charles,
    I am urge to bring a guitar to the picnic and do some strumming with others regd with the guitar group. Unfortunately, Terence can’t come now and I wonder if the guitar session is going ahead. Anyway, weather permits, I will come with one other member of the guitar group, to the picnic. I will bring along 3 pcs of paper in case anyone wished to strum and sing-a-long the selected songs. I am thinking of bringing Beers and Nuts, if that’s ok.
    HC

  66. Hi HC,

    Yes, your bringing the guitar along and doing some strumming with the group would give the Potluck a lift. Thank you; and I hope this will inspire more SHCians to pick up guitar lessons. Sorry, I cannot join you and as I down under.

    Ros

  79. Dear all,

    Everyone one the list has been notified to bring either food/drinks or whatever’s edible. There will be a good food variety and the amount you bring is up to you. We will not waste food for sure so if there are leftovers, Sam can lead the guys to ‘sau ka liao’….:p

    This picnic is already a success, all thanks to participants!

    Ros

  80. Well done Rosalind and Dan,

    The picnic looks like it is coming to shape very well. This is a great opportunity for SHCians to socialise and get to know more friends. I am sure there is a lot to talk about when it comes to food, or guitar or board games.

    For members who have always not been able to attend weekday gatherings because of work, this Saturday picnic has been specially organised for you too. I like to encourage you to quickly register and let the organisers know by tonight.

    It is only appropriate to show up at the picnic when one has registered to come. I hope everybody will also do their share to keep the place clean.

    Thanks again Ros, Dan and all participants.

    For participants, please bring along your name tag, so that other members can get to know your name.

  83. Hi Ros, done my khong bak liao – last night braised slowly, slowly…. tomorrow i get the chinese bun from market. So I’m still on, waiting for your reward, remember?

    Hi Win, see you at Lavendar mrt with my pretty pink trolley of foodies.

    And Kenneth, because you unabashedly declare your tastebud for the khong bak, I’ll reserve one share for you. You want an egg too? No guarantee it’s good though. But no good must still say good, ok, or there will be no more offerings next time.

    It’s all systems go, the “inaugural” picnic for SHC, right Terence?

  84. Rosalind (#81), no need for apologies. Thanks for the opportunity to mingle.

    Winnie (#79), glad that I will be able to pick you out of the crowd! Thanks.

  86. Hi Lilian,

    Oh yah, definitely will be present at the picnic even rain or shine as I don’t want to miss the chance this round having your home made onde onde. Lolx.

    Hi Roseline,

    Actually would like to change my mind bring the banana hoon kueh which I learned from Lilian, however I can’t get the banana leaf, so I will bring the eggs tarts.
    Thank you for the effort & arranging. Look forward to have the fun gathering with everyone.

    Cheers
    Judy

  87. Hi Ros,

    Sorry for last minute registering – as I’m able to come to picnic now as prior appointment is postphoned.
    Will bring mingzhang kueh.

    Winnie & group @ Lavender Station – I’ll meet you ladies too!

    Thank you.

  88. Hi guys!!

    It’s D-day today the 19th and I’m so looking forward to our gathering! The weather looks promising and hot so Sam’s ponchos can be used as ground sheets… and the banner too!

    There will be a parade… of the ladies from Lavender Station with pink trolleys and a troupe of serenading guitars.

    Ten persons will be bringing “something” for our mystery quiz and I just hope that someone brings a can opener for the canned food!

  89. Hello Constance #94.
    Glad you could join us. Will look out for you @ Lavendar.
    See ya.

  90. Hi Rosalind

    Hope it’s not too late to register now. I just managed to settle the urgent important tasks and 1 more to go before I can rush over to Kallang riverside potluck picnic. I might be late though. Guess it’s better late than never, right.

    I don’t want to miss this great picnic. HOpe it will be a cool and breezy afternoon. I need to avoid the uv rays (doctor’s advice).

    Hi Sam (di di or kor kor)

    I hear you la… No Frisna but got May May here. I will run the games if Rosalind doesn’t mind. I plan to do

    a) Hi-5 ice-breaker
    b) Group game (no runnning around. Must think out of the box)
    c) Number calling (forfeit will be singing with the guitarist)
    d) Matching/Pairing (All participants must be observant)

    Enough?? If not enough, I can still think of something else (no need to use any props)

    Hi Pearl

    I also hear you la. Here I come again. See you later.
    Got to run off now.

    Cheers!
    may woo

  91. Hi Rosalind

    I am lucky to have someone or 2 persons who prepared the food.

    Lilian and Ann, thank you for cooking. See you there.

    Regards
    may woo

  92. Rosalind,

    If you have a whistle, bring along. it’s a great way to gather the guys and gals together. Have fun.

  93. #100 Terence,

    Sorry for missing your call, Terence. I am confident the members who are going to the picnic will be game enough to ensure they have fun. 🙂

    The weather’s lovely as of now and I pray it will be cooler in the later afternoon. Anyway we are prepared for the elements to change and having a wet picnic will be quite a novelty…hahaha

    I have late registrants but never mind. As long as everyone bring something edible or drinkable to share with others, that’s good enough. Empty-handed participants will be getting the ‘eye’ from me….hahahaha

    Too bad you cannot be with us, Terence. Wherever you are right now, you have fun too.

    Cheers
    Ros

  94. Weather forecast says Partly Cloudy. However, weather forecasts from NEA got to be taken with a pinch of salt.

  95. Hi Rosalind, Dan & Charles

    Thank you very much for all your efforts in organising the picnic for us this afternoon. It was really enjoyable, the food was good and there was good fellowship among SHC friends.

    SHC really got talent ~ you’ll be surprised at the culinary skills of some of the SHCians!

    Last but not least, the weather was fine and the picnic site just right for the event.

    Cheersssssss to all…………

  96. Dear all,

    Wahhhhh, you wonderful people beat me in the post-mortem post!

    I want to thank everyone for TURNING up in full force and the attendance was 100%! There were one or two late registrants and everyone brought either food, desserts or drinks. Those who cooked were indeed master chefs! There were sedap food and no wastage as uneaten food were shared and brought home for family members.

    I am glad for fellow members who care for each other and no one was left alone or isolated. Our newcomer Sue Tan experienced the SHC spirit of warmness that you and I are sure have made her feel she was welcomed.

    Alamak! Here I go again, long-winded…:(

    Thank you soooo much my SHC brothers and sisters!

    Cheers

  97. Hi Rosalind, Dan and Charles

    Thank you very much for organising the Potluck Party today.
    I thoroughly enjoyed it. My only regret is that I had a
    heavy lunch and did not have much room to sample all the good food.

  98. Hi Rosalind,

    Thank you for organising yesterday potluck picnic. This event provide Annie and me an opportunity to catch-up with those we met before and others the first time. There are many varieties of food. I think I eat every 15 mins. 🙂 We also enjoy the group games lead by Dan & May. In one of the game I was ask to approach and name 5 members. All that I approached were ladies. Where is the men? Hope more men to join in for the next event. 🙂

    The day seems not long enough, we join May, Clara, Ann and Sarah to Marina Bay Sand. Again, all ladies and me only man. 🙂 Spend some time at its Skypark. Good view. Manage to take a short nap at the pool deck while the ladies chit chat. 🙂 The hotel room is amazing…high-tech. Thanks to May Woo for leading us there. She can be good PR for MBS. 🙂

    Both Annie and me look forward to joining more events organise by voluntary EOs.

  99. Hi Johnny Pow @ 106,

    With regard to your question ( Where is the men ? )

    In SHC the men are ” endangered species” hiding in the bushes. Ha! ha! 🙂

  100. Johnny #106

    Johnny,my new friend.

    You escorted 5 ladies to one of the most scenic and romantic place in Singapore and proceed to fall asleep. You also ask where are the SHC men.

    I think we should discuss why you fall asleep, it may well be the same reason why we see few men in SHC functions. And if we know the reason Terence can fix it.

    Is it because we men are already worn out by the time we reach 45? What can we do to prevent you from sleeping or worst still, like me, who did not turn up for the function.

    Maybe we men need some stimulant, but what stimulant.

    What do man want, really?

  101. #108 Tian Soo,

    I cannot put a face to your name even if I have met you before. This is due to my poor memory for names/faces and not because of dementia.

    I hope to clarify this. Johnny DID NOT fall asleep during the picnic but only after, when a group of ladies and him went to MBS. It’s only natural for him to have a nap at the Skypark after an afternoon of feasting at the picnic.

    When you said you ‘did not turn up for the function’ I read it as the function meaning the picnic because the visit to MBS was by invite only. NONE of the guys were sleepy at the picnic for your information.

    Please be more specific with your reference to ‘function’ as I take affront to categorization of the picnic as a ‘sleep-inducing’ activity.

    If readers feel I am wrong, please correct me.

    Cheers
    Ros

  102. Ref: 108 and 109

    Hi,

    Agreed with Rosalind’s comments at #109. All the men were fully awake during the picnic from 3.30 – 6 pm. The stimulant seems to be the good home-cooked food, fresh air, beautiful scenery and beautiful ladies, of course.
    Hahaha…………..

  103. Hi Rosalind, Dan and participants to this Potluck cum picnic,

    Sounds like everybody had a good time at the event. I hope the new members get to meet new friends. So, food was the attraction. Exactly what our recent survey indicated.

    Men, I still have no solution. I would welcome any small or big ideas on how to reverse the situation. Aiyah, dont worry, let us focus on Potluck or home-cooked Potluck.

    Terence Seah
