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.
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.
This week session [05 June 2021] is hosted by Ms Josephine Wong – another one of our SHC foodie cum private chef. Went to SHATEC to build her foundation… who has an ardent interest in food – eats not only out of hunger but also as a hobby – someone who enjoys cooking for family and pleasure.
This day, she shares with us her passion…
I am sure we do have many more like-minded SHCians who are very good in cooking. Food is one of the most powerful connective tools we have. To build our bonds over a meal – FOOD indeed is a shared cultural product.
Do come forward to host and share with us what your family and friends like most.

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…

During a recent zoom meeting, someone say that we must embrace the new technology with open arm – to like it or not also must accept it as move on. Cannot give any excuses but try your best through trial and errors.I strongly urge everyone to step out to try, to fail and to learn with persistence.

Put on your request to Terrence what are the topic you like to learn : How to use
This forum is an online “meeting place” and it is used to engage with others or groups of the same interest gather together so they can discuss or debate, share knowledge and communicate with others about something or provide useful information. It is like a message board, where members create a POST and can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.
The Club provides a forum for SHCians interested to network with others. Today, session is indeed fruitful. Terence has arranged it to enable more SHCian to be engaging and create awareness on their current activities. Based on the recent feedback survey, numerous members do have difficulty in accessing the forum.
One member quoted – I am still blur what WordPress is – Simply put, WordPress is web publishing software SHC use to create her own website or blog.
How does forum work? A user creates a post. That post can be accessed by other users at any time. It can contain questions, opinions, images, videos, link and more. Users can respond to the post, which creates a dialogue other user can participate in also known as a Thread.

Having a headache, a stomach ache or a flu may be easily cured after visiting the GP.
At our age, what does it mean when we are striked with a major sickness. We turn to our hospitals. There is excitement. Will we ever be cured? How do we overcome the costs of medication, doctor visits and hospital stays. What medication or treatment do we go through?
I am a diabetic for 20 plus years. I thought medication, diet and exercise would help or cure. But recently, my TTSH doctor told me I have to undergo dialysis. So, I am looking forward.
Unfortunately I didnt have the experience to slow kidney failure. I felt I should have started a diabetic support group for members who are diabetic. This group is not for advisors.
I have allocated every 1st Thur 2100 – 2200 hrs for diabetics to gather together. Join us from your home on Zoom. If u are diabetic, rsvp “Diabetic”.
Fyi, 2nd wk Thur 2100 hr High BP, Stroke, hypertension.
3rd wk Thur 2100 hr Cancer.
4th wk Dementia and Parkinson.
Closing date for RSVP 10 May 2021. Zoom link will be sent after.
EO Jean Lim. Recording is for the benefit of members unable to attend or who have sick relatives.
They are considered strong – known for their strength of mind, body and spirit.
Tend to be born tinier than those born in other months – some are shorter, lighter and have smaller heads.
They are driven to succeed – strong-willed and deeply emotional, possess inborn 6 sense that helps them navigate through life – can be stubborn, but their critical, systematic ways of thinking help them to get stuff done.
Often have Wanderlust – restless n curious, always itching to explore the world, bitten by the travel bug, exploration is not simply a distraction but it’s a way of life. They are the last to complain about hectic lifestyles.
May-born Parents are the BEST – their kiddos can count themselves among the lucky ones; they are devoted, well-organized, resourceful and creative… Plus point for May-born spouses, both are affectionate and funny.
Watch your wallets with May-born people – born in this month are notorious spendthrifts, BUT if they set their minds to save money, they’re also the most committed to doing so.
The 2 zodiac signs associated with this month are Taurus and Gemini. The practical Taurus can be known by their earthy and realistic ways of living. Gemini has a talkative, abstract, extreme intelligence that flies past – ready to go and do.
On behalf of SilverHairsClub – we would like to wish those SHCians born to this month a wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
PS – do drop a line or 2 to send them wishes on their birthday month…
