SHC Cycling – Finally Rolled Out

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
3) AndrewK
4) JasmineW
5) JohnH
6) BobbyB
7) DollyL
8) SereneL
9) LinaN

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..

Daniel Chan’s suggestion to take SHC forward as a registered entity

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.

Interesting Qualities of July-born

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.

https://www.straitstimes.com/sport/cycling-seven-year-old-covers-75km-in-5-hours-veteran-gives-boy-his-medal-for-amazing-feat

Funding SHC for the next 5-10 years

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.

SHC Admin Role – to ASSIST or OVER-RULE

Ever since I am being appointed as SHC Admin in the SilverHairsClub.Com, I do have throngs of members speaking ill of me, not only in their circle of groups / one to one verbal n msg / etc… just to mention a few.

These inconsiderate beings who have nothing better to do with their spare time but rather spike / malign / defame / criticize about others.

Before going forward to do all these – take a look at yourself in the mirror – are you the Mr n Ms Perfect – if not, refrain from doing so – coz such ill ions in our human body will only do more harm to us causing anxiety, irritability, breathing difficulty and again just to name a few.

Majority of SHCians are half-century-old. What do we gain out of it by maliciously, viciously spiking at others?  I, for sure, gain nothing out of being SHC Admin, this is a voluntary role which I believe no one loves to suck on it.  But if anyone is interested, he or she is most welcome to take over any time.

What prompt me to write this post?  Coz time and time again, I do receive such hateful remarks and maybe who knows my ancestor might have provoked theirs…. Hahahaha…. And this is my payback time?  Don’t forget this old saying…. “What goes around comes around?”

I would truly love to hear more honest feedback from this post… all comments are welcome.  Thank you.

Update on my hospital adventure Jun 2021

I realise that I have been losing energy and feeling breathless last one year. Late last year, TTSH docs advised me to be prepared for water dialysis. Sounds like an exciting adventure and stage of my life.

Last Monday, I was admitted to TTSH for suspected fever and infection. The hospital also drew 2 kg of water making my weight now 72kg, instead of 75kg when I arrived.

Well, today the advice is to start blood dialysis quickly today.

I have been getting queries from members. And in order not to have bits and pieces of information from diff sources, I shall update this Post regularly.

I am fine mentally. SHC will move on, We are making arrangements to plan forward next 5-10 years. I am glad to have very strong support from Jean Lim. And the many members, pioneer and newer, who believe in the SHC objective. Tq.

Individual born in JUNE – What it says about you!

Born in the 6th month of the year, JuneBs are known to be social butterflies because of their outgoing, charismatic, charming and creative traits… even though they can be more than a handful at times due to their extremely inquisitive and childlike optimistic nature.  They are great communicators and can easily attracts everyone’s attention.  Sensitive and caring towards other’s feelings.

The month in which you were born fall under the sign of Gemini, can reveal a lot more than you think about who you are as a person both on the inside and on the outside.  June’s birthstone is a pearl, which represents innocence and purity.  Often talkative, they enjoy debating and getting into deep conversations where they can exercise their active minds.

On behalf of SilverHairsClub – we’d like to wish all the June babies an amazing month.

PS – do drop a line or 2 to all who are celebrating their birthday month…
