However, do try to minimize the numbers in group outings and also try to keep to the restrictions set to avoid potential exposure to the virus.
For gatherings with closed ones at home – most F&B Outlets can only open for takeaway and/or delivery during this period and as for dining-in do look out for the latest announcement.

On the morning of 30 July, SHC team of past and future weekend warriors had a zoom session with Aloysius and Kevin of Vintage RadioSG. Many of our members were also with us to enjoy the morning chit chat with our guests. Hopefully, they will be inspired to be the future weekend warriors.
It was a reunion for past warriors who had the great experience to deejay a recording session with Aloysius and his team. All we needed to do is to showcase our 10 favorite songs and what the songs meant to us. Under Aloysius’ guidance, we sounded calmed and collected, making the whole session fun and we looked cool.
It was indeed a privileged for me to be their pioneer WW in Nov 2020. I shared the thrilling experience with our members in our zoom sessions, many have participated and have received great compliments. Two members will be called shortly for their recordings.
Aloysius updated us on what’s happening on the Vintage Radio and its various platform whereby seniors can take a peek at his/her own leisure. E.g National Silver Academy , C3A and the videos covering NSA e-Nuggets series.
Do check in the zoom recording to hear what we discuss and gain more exposure from Vintage Radio.
Take this opportunity to say “Yah! I wanna to be a deejay, and be heard over the soundwave, have the opportunity of play my favourite songs.”
Make this your next challenge in your bucket list. Life is more interesting as we explore new boundaries.
Those born in August are either Leos or Virgos. They are very strong people, physically and mentally, undeniably strong-willed, confident and some says proud… Thanks to the combination of 2 great sets of personality traits.
What kind of person is your LEO friend? A passionate, warm-hearted, humorous and cheerful individual fun to be with – this “King of the Jungle” rules with self-confidence, dominant and irresistible…
Virgoans, on the other hand, do have appealing personality traits – explicitly, organized, precise and detailed-oriented. They are dependable and also practical people. They are charismatic too but theirs is a quiet charisma.
Some said to be arrogant yet humble. Straightforward and honest – they are friends who will never sugarcoat anything and only choose those worthies of their time. And if they love you, they really do and will give you all they have.
If you have any friends in mind who fit the August bill, please do wish them a wonderful birthday month.
On behalf of SilverHairsClub – we’d like to wish all the August babies an amazing month.
PS – do drop a line or 2 to all who are celebrating their annual natal day…

I am conducting two zoom sessions (through NLB) on the following dates:
Part 1: 5th Aug 2021 at 9PM to 10PM

The long waited SHC cycling event finally went on smoothly on:
Date : 17July 2021
Meeting Point : “Go Cycling” Bike Rental Kiosk
Time : 1630hrs for those that need to rent the bicycle
(Supposed to start at 1700hrs but was slightly delayed as some arrived abit late)
Destination : ECP ===> MBS
A total of 10 members were there to kick start this event:
1) DouglasC – EO
2) Ronald Lam – CoEO
Sadly that YK was only to meet later on the our return to rental kiosk after cycling.
Despite of slight delay, weather was hot and humid but all members shown great enthusiasm with SereneL started to cycle first with the rest of us followed up later. Many pics attached can attest.
Bonding can be seen amongst members from the starting point to Tanjong Rhu (1st rest point) finally to MBS. As much as everyone wanted to mingle around but was constantly kept reminding by DouglasC and RonaldL for safe distancing measures. Kudos to DouglasC and RonaldL.
While 3 of us continued to cycle further and stopped to watch NDay rehearsal but the rest need to get back to rental kiosk due to time constraint and proceed to have dinner at EC food centre. As for us, we had a dinner at St Marc while cycling to ECP.
Hope that SHC monthly cycling event will continue henceforth from now… Cheers..
At last night’s meeting, 11 Jul 2021, Daniel Chan has suggested to take SHC forward as a registered entity. His view is that we cannot collect donations if we are unregistered.
From members’ feedback in recent surveys and live recordings, members have overwhelming opted to remain status quo ie unregistered and informal. Plse follow this thread.
To give this topic one more opportunity to bring SHC into the registered status, I am open to Daniel Chan bringing his suggestion into fruit.
DanielC, pls go ahead to do all necessary discussions with members, to set up SHC as a registered entity. This will likely take some months. Once your protem committee and entity is set up, you can invite current members to join this new entity. I open this option and shall leave this to you.
Meantime, SHC shall proceed to move forward as preferred by the majority of SHC members. We shall stay clear within the laws as Singapore citizens, and keep to our rules of not engaging in politics, race, religion, sex, direct selling and MLM. Our single objective, since 2005, is to provide a platform for seniors to meet new and old friends.

Those born in July are either Cancer (June 21 – July 22), a symbol of Crab OR Leo (July 23 – Aug 22), a symbol of Lion…
True or False
A lady born in July is noble, very timid and occasionally stingy. She is good at cooking. A one in a million lady – not open to criticism – for sure you don’t really want to get near because she won’t take it.
July-born man seems to wear a frown on his forehead. Quite introverted and is indeed a family guy. Loves art and painting. Not someone whom you will consider very generous or let’s just say he is a big fan of money.
On behalf of SilverHairsClub – we’d like to wish all the July babies an amazing month.
PS – do drop a line or 2 to all who are celebrating their birthday month…HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Grab ‘n’ Go – presented by Ms Marlene Yap, Saturday, 26 June 2021 @ 10:30am
Why Grab n Go? Ms Marlene Yap, being a Diet Freak herself, talks about her unique offering of freshness, pictorial appeal, quick service, portable packaging, value and healthy options – another direction that is hassle-free than dine-in meals, but just as enjoyable.
Marlene’s MOTTO – Principles of healthy Eating… Demand for Quality Ingredients!
Nowadays, consumers are more discerning than ever before. They tend to spend more on their food if they know the finished product are made of imported ingredients, maintain ethical and ensure their meals are healthy and freshly made. Marlene’s cooking style is fuss-free and zero wastage. She loves merging cuisine and creating fusion recipes…
Her recommendation for today – Homemade Premium XO Sauce – with an umami flavour, commonly used as an enhancer or table condiments.

Being our member since 2007 – A great cycling coach and influencer to our members in SHC Cycling Group.
A benevolent person, Yew Keong never fails to show his kindness and love interest in engaging anyone regardless of their age to partake in this cycling activities. A member of Facebook Public Group “Singapore Park Connection Network, otherwise know as, SG PCN Cyclist”, currently joined hands with fellow enthusiast of 47.8K…
Do take a peek on this Straits Times review published on Sunday, 27 June 2021
ST20210627_202119601467 Yong Li Xuan/ cyocbc/ Afi, 7, completed a 75.3km bike ride from Bukit Panjang to Coney Island in 5 hours. After Afi’s personal achievement was shared in a Facebook group, an experienced cyclist Loh Yew Kwong gave Afi an OCBC Ride 2021 medal to encourage him. The OCBC Cycle team has arranged for Afi and his family to meet Yew Kwong.
We do have our very own cycling group communities – jointly organized by Douglas Chan, Ronald Lam and Loh Yew Kwong on a monthly basis. Take up this hobby as a form of exercise and have a good bonding with all passionate cyclists – Keep exploring with your Bike and who knows you might capture some beautiful scenes while cruising.
Below is the FB write-up link from a mother thanking Yew Kwong for his kind gesture…
SHC is not funded by any individual or organisation. All activities are voluntary and at costs. EO usually report losing money despite putting in time, effort and costs
We can carry on as we have done for the last 15 years.
A common question which members asked is how much do we have under the pillow. My answer is Zero.
At the recent feedback on finding a successor, we had some suggestions to raise funds. We had not considered because many members felt we should remain status quo because of legal concerns and how to go about. I am not in favour of fees and subscriptions. I think that collecting fees is a debate itself as members have expressed strongly they benefit differently from SHC besides the legalities, so fees or subscriptions is an unfair concept.
But we should still explore how we can fund ourselves. Besides the operational costs, we should now look forward the next 5-10 years how to manage new seniors expectations eg how to handle major events, membership drives without running losses.
If we have a fund, we can see ourselves operating as a voluntary social club for the next 5 or even 10 years. This will enable the Club successor and the Admin committee to run SHC, within rules set.
To start the process, I like to initiate 2 brainstorms sessions. Members get to voice your opinion and suggestion.
Session 1 – What are the big ticket activities or ideas, you, as a member, expect or hope to see within the next 5-10 years. Date next Sat/Sun.
Session 2 – We should then determine a budget as our aim for a fund. Here, we brainstorm how can go about setting a fund.
Both sessions are recorded, for members update.
You can also participate in this topic in SilverHairsClub.com forum.
No matter what our age are – our father is our role model and the connection is wonderfully complex. Forging a strong father-child relationship can be hard work, but the lasting bond formed can make all our effort worthwhile…
Yet, another bouts of Covid-19 cases rising – let’s make this day a stay home day and show our dad that we love him for being who he is and for all that he had done for us… I am sure that is the greatest gift of all… gratitude and affection.
