TIME OUT – Things to do

Just to single out a few of the above instead of bottling yourself at home – of course our utmost care and concern is STAY HEALTHY n STAY SAFE.

What should I do for my birthday in November?

  • Do something on your Bucket List
  • Splurge yourself on a Treat
  • Take a day OFF whether from work or from your close ones
  • Spend the whole day doing 1 thing you haven’t had time to do

On behalf of SilverHairsClub – we would like to wish those SHCians born to this month a wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

NO TRICK OR TREAT THIS HALLOWEEN

Halloween is lurking just around the corner but the coronavirus pandemic and current restrictions limit us from engaging such high-risk activity especially for the young ones.

Safe things to do on Halloween at home:-

  1. Watch Halloween Movie Marathon
  2. Candy Hunts with your grandchildren – hide it around your house or backyard for them to find
  3. Hold a Zoom costume party with loved ones abroad – get dressed up and see who is the most creative youngster
  4. Decorate Halloween themed face mask
  5. Tell a ghost story – really love the Legend of the Sleepy Hollow

Many more ideas you can think of to interact with your grandchildren.

We need to slow down current community transmission which have doubled or tripled over the past weeks. Do take extra precautions to safeguard the wellbeing of our seniors as well as juniors and to seek medical attention immediately if they are unwell.

Just stay in on Halloween, let’s work together to help stop the spread of coronavirus and protect our family.

Collecting commision from advertising, promoting, introduction or selling products or services to SHC members

It has come to my attention that some members get a commission when introducing other members to external courses including skills development or skill credits courses.

In concept, it sounds like “Why not?” when the cause is good.

SHC was developed as a free platform. It incurs costs in operating the Club.  However, some members are unwilling to contribute to a SHC startup operating fund. And they use our members and forum to advertise and collect monetary benefits in return.

The club will be reviewng this situation.

Celebrating NDP from our HOME

Though limitations might mean a toned-down National Day this year, there are still a variety of ways we can celebrate and show our national pride at home, be it virtual and some gathering amongst families.

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.

Let your fingers do the walking and explore how you can bring NDP nearer to you. Click on the link to discover more… be it, to catch the moments in person or through live broadcasts over our coloured gogglebox and online platforms – a list of activities to be engaged through out your day.
