A survey for PMET age 40 above

With consent from Mr. Terence Seah, I like to conduct a survey.
I plan to create a social mobile platform for PMET 40 years above. PMET may be displaced or retired.
What is it for them?
By signing up the platform, PMET can share their experience and get to know each other better to exchange ideas. Hopefully they may form a team to create a startup. The platform will guide them and accelerate their dream from startup to IPO. PMET may have not discover their full potential. Also it is about time to invest in yourself and at least take control of your investment.
The roadmap from startup to IPO requires a strong management team. This a prerequisite when investors consider to invest in startup. From the platform PMET may assemble a A+ management team among themselves.
Thus appreciate members may share your view if such platform is feasible.
If yes Why?
If no why?
Kindly email me at dtan168@yahoo.com to share your view.
Thank you very much members and especially to Mr. Terence Seah.

“SHC Gossips” every Fri during Late Birds. EO: Sue Chan on SHC Zoom

Late Birds is a late night program, especially for SHC members who cannot sleep early. Held every Fri at 9.30 pm, 1 hour only.

There are many gossips among members in the Club. While some members are affected by gossips, it is clear that gossips are impossible to stop. In fact, any attempts to stop or deny gossips have failed. Gossips have for generations, become a favourite past time during lunches, walks, tea breaks and now Whatsapp.

Gossips are not just many women’s strong points. Men also enjoy gossips too. Not just among ordinary seniors like us, but also in royal, government, business, political and entertainment circles.

Some gossips are rumours. Others are fake news, while some are true but unproven. I had thought over whether to have a regular session on SHC Gossips. Some do feel that having a gossip session only makes the gossips worse. Most times, members being gossiped get to hear the gossips after hearing from 3rd parties, and unable to give their versions of the gossip.

EO Sue Chan will moderate this session. I dont know how and where this session will lead to, but do feel free to participate, every Fri 9.30 pm.

This is our 1st walk for 2020 :D :D :D

We chose this route to walk less within the Park!

Let’s stroll upstream along the river banks; see water ripples
swirling through natural rocks, waters that glisten in the sun;
provides an exceedingly soothing and therapeutic peace to the mind.

An initiative by PUB was launched in 2006 to transform our waterways into
beautiful streams with natural materials, waterscapes; creating spaces for
the community to enjoy and increase biodiversity.

Bishan-AMK park was one of the flagship projects under this transformation programme between PUB and NParks.

The park which is located in urban central Singapore was transformed from a concrete canal to having a natural “Kallang River” flowing into and
through the park, an immense project never done before.

The park now with lush greenery, grassy lawns, playgrounds, ponds, are all
ideal for family picnics and gatherings; fitness enthusiasts cycle or pant
along well-maintained tracks.

The walk leaving us tired and hungry will culminate for dinner at AMK Hub.

Note:
No or limited shelters, good to have your brollies with you.
Water to hydrate on a hot day.
Need energy, bring along a snack.
To breeze along, lighten your load.

Walk Team: Charles Wee, Veronica Wong, Mary Tan, Azhari Cuttilan,

Canto K on Zoom

Hello……this forum page is quite deserted huh, with many of our events “zooming” in cyberspace. We are still on a national day mood, so Happy National Day to all members. I still believe this is the platform for mass appeal, after which, ZOOM serves to enlighten or entertain the niche we have found. An announcement : The Cantonese Karaoke is now fixed on every Thursday, from 9pm. Duration can be variable – to be decided by the host or co-host. Join us if you like to listen to Canto songs, or better still, sing.

Reading an entire article also prevents you from becoming a victim of click bait and fake news.

Here’s something I wanna share with you guys.

Yesterday, I went to the supermarket with the prudence dictated by the new normal. Mask, Safe entry and safety distance.

I then started to get the things that were on my short list, and when I was lining up to pay, between taking the money and storing the phone, the $50 note I had to pay fell on the floor, and the man who was in front of me finishing paying his purchases slowly bent down and picked up my note.

Woww, How much education and kindness in these pandemic times – I thought. I held out my hand, waiting for him to give me back my money, trying to stay away, so that he would feel safe, while preparing to thank him for the gesture.

But suddenly, what he told me was shocking – What’s on the floor belongs to whoever finds it! – and just like that, he left … naturally, as if he hadn’t done anything wrong.

I looked at the lady behind me and the people next to me and they all looked at me in shock and disbelief, whispering things between them.

For a moment there, I was trying to evaluate myself. I wanted to do justice on my own … I left my purchases, because I had no way to pay (I forgot to bring my credit card), and went after him to the carpark, to have my $50 returned.

However, I realized that the people closest to the line came after me, curious to know what was going to happen …

I spoke to him demanding my money but he just looked at me with contempt and acted like I was invisible.

When he got to the car, he slowly put his two shopping bags on the floor to take the key out of his pocket and open the trunk, and I thought – It’s now or never!

I took the two bags and told him the same thing he had said to me – What is on the floor belongs to those who find it! – and I started running towards the exit, between fright and laughter, proud of my revenge.

The spectators started to applaud and I saw that the “smart guy” had been irritated after all, as he left the parking lot dropping security cones in his path.

I swear I felt a rush of adrenaline, fright and nervousness, but then I cried with laughter.

When I got home I opened the bags and found:

  • 2 kg shrimp
  • 1 kg of salmon
  • ham, cheese and yogurt of two flavors
  • whole grain bread
  • 1 bottle of white wine
  • 2 bottles of red wine
  • 2 jars of strawberry jam
  • 2 kg of very good quality salami
  • 1 jar of mayonnaise

I had never made so many purchases with only $50.

And now here I am … Having a glass of wine, eating and thinking as I write – am I a vigilante or a vindictive person?

HAVE YOU READ THIS UNTIL HERE?
This obviously did not happen to me. It’s just a campaign to promote reading!

Reading stimulates the mind and imagination, makes us travel to other places and even helps communication.

If you want to copy and paste and produce a smile from your friends.

Please go ahead, stimulate someone else’s mind.

What I had learnt from e-Commerce lately

Dear Members,
Due to Covid-19 pandemic and its uncertainty routes of recovery, many are plagued with lots of issues : lesser job opportunities, reduced workday/salaries and/or retrenchment as employers are facing the same fate as we do.

Thus, so much uncertainties and lots of times on hand, I had been scouting around for other sources of incomes and e-Commerce is 1 platform that I had been actively looking into but regret to say that it had not been very fruitful to me. Let’s share my personal insights with regards of the e-Commerce platform.

There are numerous ways to go around e-Commerce which I tried

1) Attending free and/or paid webinar talks by those experienced pioneer players whom had been successful in their days and now just get income thru seminars/courses to earn their dues.

2) Tap on those current well establishment sites (Lazada, Q00, Taobao, and many times) but each individual sites have their own R&R to follow. Except for Taobao that I am more keen to join but to a standstill right now as I was unable to reach some general consensus with the suppliers, eg, prices, deliveries, stock management inventories and last but most important, payment. As travel is currently out of reach, I will need to kiv this project till time permits me to do so again.

3) In my opinion, these days, some e-Commerce sites also practised almost similar business strategies like MLM but those so-called up-lines these days do not enjoyed as much earnings as those MLM in earlier days which make it more challenging for us to partake. I had also in mind 1 or 2 products/ sites which I am still considering. But most important is that, we must learnt not to be so gullible as to believe that this will be a easy route to success – As this platform still need a small capital to start up with. Also, should I decided to join these, must be prepare to work very hard so as to achieve my goal.

After a breakfast meeting with a close girlfriend this morning which she was layoff recently and driving grab right now. She shared her experiences on e-Commerce. All she said is that I must be prepared for time/monies wasted should these e-Commerce turned out to be fruitless. Hence, in conclusion, I had decided to hold on till I am ready to do so.

That’s all l want to share. Kindly note that these are my own personal views only.

Thank you… Dolly

SHC operates as a free and easy to join Club with no physical premises. Its rules are no politics, religion, race, sex, direct selling and MLM.

We need a new person to head and lead this Club for another 5 – 10 years. We need someone with wide ranging interests so we can fulfil our Club objective of providing a platform for SilverHairsClub members to meet new and old friends, with like minded interests.

We need more activities and ideas. We need creativity, imagination and dreams. We need to expand our membership.

I am holding a brain storm meeting on how to transit to a new SilverHairsClub and who you see as someone who would lead SilverHairsClub for another 5 to 10 years.

No Age Limit: 4 Reasons Seniors Should Train Martial Arts

Staying active is important to people in their 50’s, 60’s or even 70’s. The body starts to weaken during these years, especially when seniors get trapped into the sedentary lifestyle.

As we age, our bodies become brittle. The importance of daily activity cannot be more emphasized by this fact. It is vital to consider engaging in activities that will keep us as active as our bodies will allow to ensure that we stay healthy and physically fit to avoid any future illness that could prevent us from living a higher quality of life in our later years.
During a time in their lives when they become free from the pressures of the daily grind as they enter the retirement stage, seniors must focus on health now more than ever. Of course, physical limitations and health considerations need to be addressed before engaging in this type of activity. But the beauty of martial arts is that it is for everyone, no matter the age, and can be tailor-made to suit anyone of any fitness level.

Martial arts training is becoming popular with people in this age bracket. Like most people, seniors turn to martial arts for the same reasons such as improved physical fitness and mental alertness. But more than that, martial arts is an activity that seniors choose to undertake to discover how far their physical capabilities can take them while learning something new.
Today, four reasons martial arts is the perfect fitness activity for seniors.

1) Martial arts helps sustain mental health
It is a fact that there is a direct link between keeping active and maintaining mental alertness. For seniors, however, the brain does not function as quickly or as healthily as it did during the younger years. They tend to experience worse reaction time and become less sharp.
The practice of martial arts is an activity that can significantly reduce these effects of aging. Through constant practice of reflexive routines required by training, seniors are able to maintain mental alertness. It is not just a set of techniques learned and practiced in the gym a few times a week, but rather, it becomes a lifestyle that seniors learn to adopt as a way to maintain physical and mental discipline.
The brain is a muscle that needs to be exercised just as much as other muscles within the body. Martial arts allows seniors to not only engage in an activity that stimulates their mental capacities but also strengthens and conditions their physical capabilities as well. It can be anything they choose to make it because it allows them to participate up to their comfort level.
 
2) Martial arts develops new friendships and builds a community

As people enter the retirement stage, their circle of friends tends to decrease. They no longer need to go to work regularly where they are in constant connection with their workmates and colleagues. Enrolling in martial arts allows them to make and build new friendships with people that share the same interests.
A community of like-minded people determined to stay physically fit and healthy is motivation enough for seniors to pursue this activity that will inspire them to push themselves to their limits.  It could come as a surprise for seniors to know that martial arts training gives them a social environment similar to that which can be found in other social activities.
New friendships developed through the regular practice of martial arts inspire and motivate people to stick to their routines. They help each other in times when the will to push through adversity is low.
Being part of a group of people who aim to achieve similar goals in terms of physical and mental fitness is a great advantage when seniors choose to enroll in martial arts. Furthermore, the social engagement enhances the workout and training as opposed to a regular gym membership that requires them to perform exercises on their own.
 
3) Martial arts keeps your body healthy

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most popular martial arts courses for seniors due to its aerobic benefits. Grip strength and hip mobility decrease past the age of 50 and BJJ specifically develops these through routines that are advantageous to seniors. This is just one of the benefits of engaging in martial arts for this age group.
Keeping active no matter how you choose to do so ensures that your body stays in tip-top shape but doing it through martial arts makes the activity more interesting and encourages one to remain faithful to their daily routine.
The idea of keeping oneself physically fit through martial arts gives you a sense of accomplishment while placing your bodily functions in check. Burning fat, maintaining healthy cardiovascular health, and improving muscle tone helps you avoid common illnesses that are almost always present as you age, such as arthritis, high blood pressure, diabetes, osteoporosis, and heart disease.
 
4) Martial arts reverses or slows down aging

Martial arts slows down the aging process and prevents the development of age-related diseases.
As we age, our body experiences major changes in our balance, strength, posture, flexibility, and endurance. The main cause of these is mostly through inactivity.
Balance declines over time as your muscles tighten and become weaker. Your physical strength is also affected and could lead to muscle atrophy. A study conducted on men and women over 90-years old revealed that after six weeks on a specific routine or exercise regimen, the participants achieved an almost 200 percent increase in strength.
Poor posture is one of the major shifts our body experiences over time. Through martial arts training, one is required to execute forms and techniques that guarantee improved posture that could help in the prevention of osteoporosis.
A loss in the body’s collagen structure is a consequence of the aging process. Muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments, and other connective tissue become stiffer and as a result, decreasing the body’s flexibility. Likewise, the difficulty one encounters as they perform even the simplest of physical activities is a sign of reduced endurance that comes with age.
With regular martial arts training, the chance to increase your heart rate and lung capacity leads you to much-improved endurance. Overall, martial arts training can ultimately reverse or slow down the signs of aging, which is something we should all strive for.

When you put in the work towards a long term goal, you pick up life lessons that apply to areas of your life that are unrelated to your pursuit. You are forced to cultivate discipline…
