    Moving on with Paperclips

    Hi Paperclips members,

    It has always been my hope that Silverhairs members are able to find like-minded friends. Since the club started in 2005, our activities are generally participated by about 80% females and 20% males. However the Club itself has registered about 60% females and 40% males. The question has always been why the inbalance.

    As we get older, especially after leaving full time work, our colleagues carry on their lives. Nowadays, many senior club members find that our children are having their own family life. And for some, they leave the nest home. For others, our spouses leave us naturally, either through a divorce or to another world.

    At some time, we are all left alone, with an empty apartment, no one to have lunch and dinner with. We have time to travel, but we are unable to find someone with common interest. Obviously, no one to chat, go out with, hold hands together, go to a cinema together or travel to nearby Penang together.

    Very often, we then try to keep busy. Spend time with grandchildren. Watch Korean movie or roam Changi Jewel alone. Better still, some find our local kopitiam a place where we can debate the budget or find out more about CPF life from neighbours.

    I had hope that SilverHairsClub will be a platform for members to find new friends. Today, I read an article in Channel News Asea on dating apps. I guess the article suits the 25-35 age group. But I believe the dating apps suits single SilverHairsClub members. The Paperclips program is for singles only. Plse read the article below.

    I plan to be in Spore in May, and am thinking of having the next monthly gathering with the topic “Dating for SilverHairs”.

    https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/big-read-short-finding-love-age-apps

    For members planning to join the mthly gathering, the date will likely be 13-18 May 2019.

    If you like to speak on this topic, please contact me at 9489-4360.

    WWII trails, Pt 1 & 2

    Date: Saturday, 13th April 2019

    Time: 09.30AM SHARP!!     

    Do plan to be on time, if not earlier . Strictly NO waiting for latecomer! :D

    Duration: approx 3 to 4hrs (there’s no turning back)

    Meeting place (**) : Seah Im Food Centre.
    Nearest MRT – HarbourFront, NE1 / CC29; Exit B.

    SeahIm FC: One end are Malay stalls; the other end are Chinese.
    Use the toilet facilities (located nearer the Malay stalls) as the next two(2) hours might not have this facility.

    WE MEET: In the mid section; are rows of tables & chairs, nearby a CharKwayTeow stall; past these rows facing the main road is a “Coffee Queen” stall.


    EC: ChristinA

    This is not a walk in the park ….. this is an Adventure you may not want
    to miss!

    Let’s get closer to nature.. C’mon on, strap on a good pair of hiking shoes!

    We will trek through some overgrowth, hike Uphill, to visit site(s) that once
    even had disappeared from the maps of Singapore for more than 60years;
    was rediscovered, yet hidden.

    Note:
    1st leg of this walk — depends much on the weather.
    Should there be heavy rain on Friday, we might need to “change” route
    as it might be too slippery to hike uphill & down.

    IF above happens then will walk only the 2nd leg…. m still thinking :)

    To avoid confusion, meeting place (**) shall remain unchanged.
    IF you are not sure of the location of the meeting place, ASK early.

    Strongly recommend:

    1. wear long pants, covered shoes with ankle socks unless you wish to
      get bites.
    2. Hiking poles — it helps as there ain’t railings or anything to hold
    3. Brollies, caps and bottle of water to stay hydrated.

    As we might end at 2pm, I will provide a small snack.

    Walk Team: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari
    Cuttilan, Linda Chua and ChristinA Chan…. signing off!

    Kindly put your name down soonest! Thank you!

    The SHC Bear Hug

    This is an old post. As the new year is here, we can revive the SHC best hug again. Let’s give one another the hug after our new year greeting.

    In recent days, some members including myself have been doing some bear hugging; and we thought it would be a good idea to develop the SHC Bear Hug.  Whenever we meet, we can do the Bear Hug.  Here’s how it works.

    1. Both hands forward, right hand slightly higher than left hand.
    2. Smile and walk towards the other person, and give a good hug for 3-5 secs.
    3. Works for both men and women.
    4. No kissing.

    You can still operate with the typical hand-shake.

    Here are some advice for we silver hairs.

    A Wholesom Advise for all of Us

    Here are some advice for we silver hairs.

    Between age 60 and death.
    It’s time to use the money you saved up. Use it and enjoy it. Don’t just keep it for those who may have no notion of the sacrifices you made to get it. Remember there is nothing more dangerous than a son or daughter-in-law with big ideas for your hard-earned capital.

    Warning: This is also a bad time for investments, even if it seems wonderful or fool-proof. They only bring problems and worries. This is a time for you to enjoy some peace and quiet.

    Stop worrying about the financial situation of your children and grandchildren, and don’t feel bad spending your money on yourself. You’ve taken care of them for many years, and you’ve taught them what you could. You gave them an education, food, shelter and support. The responsibility is now theirs to earn their own money.

    Keep a healthy life, without great physical effort. Do moderate exercise (like walking every day), eat well and get your sleep. It’s easy to become sick, and it gets harder to remain healthy. That is why you need to keep yourself in good shape and be aware of your medical and physical needs. Keep in touch with your doctor, do tests even when you’re feeling well. Stay informed.

    Always buy the best, most beautiful items for your significant other. The key goal is to enjoy your money with your partner. One day one of you will miss the other, and the money will not provide any comfort then, enjoy it together.

    Don’t stress over the little things. You’ve already overcome so much in your life. You have good memories and bad ones, but the important thing is the present. Don’t let the past drag you down and don’t let the future frighten you. Feel good in the now. Small issues will soon be forgotten.

    Regardless of age, always keep love alive. Love your partner, love life, love your family, love your neighbor and remember: “A man is not old as long as he has intelligence and affection.”

    Be proud, both inside and out. Don’t stop going to your hair salon or barber, do your nails, go to the dermatologist and the dentist, keep your perfumes and creams well stocked. When you are well-maintained on the outside, it seeps in, making you feel proud and strong.

    Don’t lose sight of fashion trends for your age, but keep your own sense of style. You’ve developed your own sense of what looks good on you – keep it and be proud of it. It’s part of who you are.

    ALWAYS stay up-to-date. Read newspapers, watch the news. Go online and read what people are saying. Make sure you have an active email account and try to use some of those social networks. You’ll be surprised what old friends you’ll meet.

    Respect the younger generation and their opinions. They may not have the same ideals as you, but they are the future, and will take the world in their direction. Give advice, not criticism, and try to remind them that yesterday’s wisdom still applies today.
    Never use the phrase: “In my time.” Your time is now. As long as you’re alive, you are part of this time.

    Some people embrace their golden years, while others become bitter and surly. Life is too short to waste your days on the latter. Spend your time with positive, cheerful people, it’ll rub off on you and your days will seem that much better. Spending your time with bitter people will make you feel older and harder to be around.

    Do not surrender to the temptation of living with your children or grandchildren (if you have a financial choice, that is). Sure, being surrounded by family sounds great, but we all need our privacy. They need theirs and you need yours. Even then, do so only if you feel you really need the help or do not want to live by yourself

    Don’t abandon your hobbies. If you don’t have any, make new ones. You can travel, hike, cook, read, dance. You can adopt a cat or a dog, grow a kitchen garden, play cards, checkers, chess, dominoes, golf.

    Try to go. Get out of the house, meet people you haven’t seen in a while, experience something new (or something old). The important thing is to leave the house from time to time. Go to museums, go walk through a park. Get out there.

    Speak in courteous tones and try not to complain or criticize too much unless you really need to. Try to accept situations as they are.

    Pains and discomfort go hand in hand with getting older. Try not to dwell on them but accept them as a part of the life.

    If you’ve been offended by someone – forgive them. If you’ve offended someone – apologize. Don’t drag around resentment with you. It only serves to make you sad and bitter. It doesn’t matter who was right. Someone once said: “Holding a grudge is like taking poison and expecting the other person to die.” Don’t take that poison. Forgive, forget and move on with your life.

    Laugh. Laugh away your worries Remember, you are one of the lucky ones. You managed to have a life, a long one. Many never get to this age, never get to experience a full life.

    Travelling experience with seniors

    A top activity among seniors is travelling. Many of us love to go JB, further to China, and further still on a cruise from HK. Of course, it costs money, but for many we want to see the world at 60, 65 and 70.

    Many seniors prefer to go with a friend or a group. So, we join a group, but sometimes, our travel partners become enemies. And the rest of the trip becomes sour, and we never want to see the other person again. Why?

    Teenagers, young adults handle social communication better. But seniors and retirees fare badly on many issues when travelling together, despite a good 50 to 60 years living experience on earth.

    “I just can’t stand why she spends such a long time making up in the toilet”.

    “This lady is a bitch, real bloody bitch. I will never go out with her again.”

    “Who does she think she is? She thinks she is still young. I don’t want to be associated with such people”.

    “This guy is very stingy. He waits and waits and won’t offer to buy you a drink. So kiam siap. I can pay myself. No need him to pay for me”.

    How do we go out travelling together and still come back as friends? Better still as closer friends. Are we the perfect travelling friend?

    Let’s chat without hinting at who’s the person. Let’s discuss how we can be better travelling companies.
