Certificate in Tours & Travel Services For Tour Leader

Terence, this is not advertisement but a SkillsFuture Credits for those retired or semi-retired or like me, thinking of retiring and don’t want to be idling around and hope to try our hands on new venture.  After all, most members are into travelling so this could be an interesting subject to learn too…

Dear Members,
Rosalind Lee had actually shared this in SHC FB Page and felt that it would be also good to share this info here.

The above is 2 days and best still, Eligible for SkillsFuture Credits.  From the poster given, this seems to be an interesting course for some of us to attend.  Understood that there will be session on 27-28 Sept and subsequently 7-8 Oct and 14-15 Oct respectively.

I wish to attend this too but not on weekends as I have other family commitments to attend.  Any others to join too?  All current dates given above, I am unable to attend.

All details are listed in the posted attached.

Thank you and cheers… Dolly

Donating of Kindergarten Story Book

Dear all SHC members,
Presently, I have some 180 copies of this story book, The Tooth Fairy, which I intend to donate to recommended kindergartens/child care centers.

I’m sure this book, which is well illustrated and written in simple English with a moral that comes with each story, will bring joy to children during story time. This book is suitable for children of 1.5 – 6 years old.

The reason for making this small donation is a show of my way in giving back to society, also supporting the Govt’s current national campaign, Read More Physical Books, which is aimed primarily at preschoolers. Hopefully, this promotion will also encourage more mothers to read regularly of bedtime stories to their children thus inculcating good reading habits from young.

If any SHC members who may know of certain needy kindergartens/children learning centers, interested in receiving this donation which is limited to 10 copies per recipient, please give me full kindergarten/center’s name, contact details including email address with which I can use to communicate with them directly. I fully respect the present PAPD Act. Do a good deed and be blessed.

Finally, I’m contactable on frankaw@gmail.com.

Best regards

Frank

“One night in Bangkok” date not firmed

We shall be starting our planning for “One night in Bangkok” soon. The date, the venue and the program are still at liquid stage, but I think we may not have many moons to wait.

I am hoping to coincide the date with a Thai traditional culture and date. And if this is the case, the event will be held before this year end. Obviously, we must have thai food and maybe Singha or Chang beer to go along.

We need not structure the event as a dinner & dance, so the committee will have to crack this out.

To start, if you like to join the committee, plse whatsapp +65 9489 4360. Suggestions and comments are invited on this Post.

Quotable Quotes

“Friends are the fruitcake of our lives.  Some are nutty, some are soaked in alcohol, some firm, some sweet, but altogether, they are great to have in your life.”

“Surround yourself with people who:

Empower you

Believe in you

Support you

Uplift you

Motivate you

Appreciate you”

 

Thank you very much for your support at the kopi chat today.  30+ ppl attended the event. Everything was fine and a success except for a little misunderstanding.  Nonetheless, this has been resolved and the matter is now closed.. we’re all good friends again.. nothing unusual .. the teeth may sometimes bite the tongue because of their close proximity..life is too short to be bothered.. we want to enjoy our remaining years.  CHEERS! 

 

Fairy Godmother is still alive

Hi fellow members,

Fairy Godmother is still very much alive. She is now 72, walks around with a walking stick, a bit slow in thinking and very often, sitting and resting under the mango tree. She still dangles her magic wand; but due to weak batteries, the wand seldom works well. She is now thinking of using an Artificial Intelligence Robot to help her thinking and sometimes makes decisions on a behalf.

I am sure some of you have read about a security robot that can patrol large area 24 hours a day, taking over the duties of securities guards and can smell fires, detect faces and can even call an ambulance. But sadly, about two months ago, the robot ran too fast, hit the edge of a water fountain and fell into a pool of water. Her circuitary was wet and she died.

Well fairy godmother is alive. She is still good at moderating quarrels especially among boys and girls. Unfortunately, she can’t talk, so she just waives her wand. Some some comments and posts just disappear at a “Zap”. If batteries are not well charged, sometimes nothing happens.

Fairy Godmother wants to have a smooth and quiet retirement life. But we all know boys and girls do quarrel from time to time, usually because of a misunderstanding. Fairy Godmother is happy to see the boys and girls happy, running here and there and enjoying the good lives on Singapore island.

Fairy Godmother forgets names easily. She is not perfect. If anyone likes to be a trainee God Mother, do let me know. Meantime, she is hoping that more of the boys and girls who are over 45 can help to keep the peace with SilverHairsClub.

Direct Selling : Kumquat Marmalade

I brought my home-made kumquat marmalade to sell for the first time in SHC 2010 flea mart. Thanks to many of you, the marmalade sold briskly. This year, I saw a bumper crop and so decided to sell the kkq marmalade once again.

FYI., the kumquat marmalade is natural, with no preservatives or artificial colouring added.It is hygienically produced and packed into tubs of about 380 gms. On wide request, the recipe has been altered to reduced the sugar content. However, It still tasted great. The price remained at $5 per tub.

If you wished to make an order, pls write to me on whatsapp or on this post. I planned to make the first delivery on 23 Aug ’17 at Gabriella’s coffee chat (see refer to her post on this subject). Thank you Gabriella for kindly consenting to this. The second delivery (for o/s orders, if any) would be at the monthly meeting but this is not finalised yet. Personal collection / delivery will have to be discussed one-on-one separately.

Thank you
Lee Hou Chong

Chat about “Genki-Kaki” over coffee

Lien Foundation arranged for 2 seniors to tour Japan to discover lessons in senior living. Their observations are posted on its website. Just this weekend, BizTimes printed an article “A good Death’ wherein there is a section about “Advanced Care Plan”.

This is the link for Genki Kai.

http://www.genkikaki.com/articles

Would any member like to meet over a cuppa of Starbucks coffee and chat about these 2 issues.

My proposal is to meet for the first time on 14 Aug 2017,Monday morning at around 10:30 at the SBUX coffee store at either HarhourView or ViVoCity. We shall see if a group of like-minded members can be formed to keep ourselves abreast of developments in this field. Of course, we can chat about other issues after the main topic has been covered.

Drink coffee!

Drinking ordinary coffee is a simple pleasure, but now the latest studies on coffee show a strong association between coffee drinkers and longevity! (ST 12/7, pg A18. )Yes, coffee drinkers appear to live longer compared with non coffee drinkers.

For decades coffee was considered an unhealthy drink.  I was drinking coffee regularly and of course was worried. However a colleague pooh poohed the whole thing. She said her father-in-law was a coffee addict and drank coffee every day like water. He passed away at age 88years!

My favourite brew is kopi-O lightly sweetened with raw sugar. Sip it hot. Refreshing!  If at coffee shop I will order coffee sweetened with condensed milk.  Delicious!

Great news about coffee prolonging life.

38 Oxley Road, a memory for most of us

The home of our ex Prime minister LKY will remain a memory for many of us.  It is currently the most talked about topic in Singapore; and today, Parliaament opens with a ministerial statement from PM Lee as well as other ministers.  The whip has also been lifted. MPs are free to ask questions and  express their views.

SHC members are free to discuss the issue on this post.  Please stay away from politicising the issue.  No name calling; and plse respect every member points of view.
