Club handover

Dear SilverHairsClub members,

Handover

We started SHC in 2005. Now 15 years old, we should review succession and handover plans. Change is needed to keep up with time and changing membership interests. It is my aim to be a SHC ordinary member by this year end and for a new person/committee to take over.

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.

Invitation to participate ONLY if you rsvp ‘handover” before closing date 18 Jul.

Venue: SHC Zoom
Date/time: SUN 19 July 1000am 1.5 hrs.

Are you afraid of listening to ghost stories? Telling ghost stories Sat night, coming soon.

For more than 40 years, I have not watched a ghost movie.  When I pass the television showing a jumping ghost, esp a female one in white, I would quickly close my eyes and walk away.  Unfortunately I can still hear the screams, because I cannot close my eyes. Today, I would still not go see a ghost movie.

Some seniors can sleep well, even if the doors keep opening and closing.   A few members are very good at telling ghost stories.  At the same time, many of us can glue our eyes to the screen, if the ghost story teller wears white or red, and has long straight or fluffy hair, and big black round eyes

We all have our experiences.  The soldiers talking in an empty barrack.  A woman crying besides the road at 12 midnight.  And something moving in the bushes but cannot tell what it is.

If you like to be frightened or to frighten others, come join us Sat night. Date and time to be announced.  Ghost story tellers invited to meet fellow friends

Pyjamas night

What’s it like to wear our pyjamas and zoom in bed? I guess we put on our ear piece, cuddle our bolster and tie a band aroun our head.

Maybe we can recognise one another.  Who?

Think about it and share.  Dreams work well if we think hard.  We need ideas.

The new SilverHairsClub Facebook group

Dear members,

The previous SHC Facebook page is now discontinued.  As part of getting our platform and objective to enable SilverhairsClub members to meet new and more friends, we are preparing to increase our membership via Facebook.

The new setup is called “SilverhairsClub in Singapore”, and this is our SHC Facebook group.  Facebook members have to be Singaporean/PR, over 45, and have to abide by the same club rules.

All SHC members with a Whatsapp/tel registered mobile number are considered Ordinary members.  You can also join as a SHC Facebook member, to enjoy another communication channel via Facebook.  This is optional.

New members as well as current SHC ordinary members can join “SilverhairsClub in Singapore” Facebook group.  Facebook Group members are called SHC Facebook members.  Facebook members get to enjoy the same SHC activities and use our Club website “SilverhairsClub.com”, provided their Tel/Whatsapp are registered with the Club.  This is the key difference between Ordinary member and Facebook members.

We intend to keep our membership registration simple.

Every Mon to Fri, we have Virtual “Morning Breakfast”.  Just pop in anytime, from your mobile, between 7.30am and 8.30am. Let’s have Kopi and nasi lemak together.

Let’s bring our grand children together. Let’s have a Talentime for them

Many of us have young grandchildren, and it is indeed tiring keeping them busy all day and night. We had a Zoom gathering this week, and often, we could hear children busy in the background. At one recent event, a young sweet girl popped up besides Charles Wee, curiously looking at cute seniors having a chat online.

It strikes me that it would nice if we organise a Talentime for our grand children. They can be singing, dancing, showing a magic trick or hobby.

I was thinking we keep the age to 10 years and below. Grand parents get to dress the kids up.  and maybe prepare some music in the background. We can work out the prizes.

The audience can do a vote at the end of the Talentime to determine the most entertaining show.

Likely date/time: Sat 11 April  1 pm to 3.30pm. LIVE on SHC Zoom.

A practice session will be organised this Sat 4 Apr from 1.30 pm to 3.00 pm. Simply join in at https://zoom.us/j/4178525736.  Password is available from co-hosts Howard Yong  and Catherine Soon or via whatsapp +65 94894360.

How about this idea? Like to help me? Contact me at 9489-4360.

Plse standby to register your name and grandchildren to participate. Recording is not allowd and recording is disabled in all SHC Zoom events.

“How to buy & Sell online via e-commerce websites”, a discussion led by Dolly Lim, Tue 31 Apr 2020 7pm

Zoom Video discussion on 31 March 2020 @ 7pm...

Buying goods online has become very popular, from local or overseas stores. Selling online has also been equally easy, especially with easy payment systems. Of course there are pitfalls, but selling online enables us to reach the outside world, reach directly the buyer and benefit from the e-commerce website marketing.

Dolly Lim has offered to moderate this topic LIVE on SHC Zoom. We get to share our selling and buying experience. Learn about potential risks but also how to go about using sites like Taobao, Wish and other sites to sell.

If you have a selling website, come discuss with the group.

The session will be one hour, and we will determine if we will do this activity on a regular basis, after the first one. Session will be conducted over SHC Zoom. Simply click here 5 mins before the date and time. No password.

GE 2020/21 discussion – members only

In the last general election, we had a WhatsApp discussion group. More than 100 members participated. I remembered the discussion was hot, furious, and personal. As a rule, SHC discussions do not allow politics but I had allowed it at the last GE as it was considered an issue of major impact to all of us.

This time, COVID-19 has become a new barrier to gatherings. To enable us to discuss the issues and keep ourselves updated, I shall open a SHC Zoom discussion on our coming GE2020 or 2021 very soon.

This will be a video conference, LIVE. You can participate from your mobile, IPAD, tablet or desktop. Simply click on the link at the scheduled times.

Join Zoom Meeting https://zoom.us/j/4178525736

More updates here soon.

Suggestions on how to organise this activity appreciated.

To participate, WhatsApp ‘Yes GE” to 9489-4360. You will be advised of this SHC Zoom event.

Sam Goh, also know as Ah Huat or the laughter yoga teacher, joined SHC in Jan 2006. Well known as our contact guy in JB, Sam just crossed 60, and has always been involved in recycling and charity activities in JB.

Sam is street smart. He speaks Bahasa Malay and Mandarin fluently. Having lived in JB for more than 20 years, he knows many nooks and corners, including good food, karaoke and special buys. He also knows many naughty places.

We have invited Sam Goh to give a talk on “Living in JB during retirement”. He is ideally suited to offer his views and recommendations on JB.

The talk will be presented over SHC Zoom. Date and time not fixed yet. This will last about 30 mins, followed by Q&A and discussion. You are welcome to participate.

Ageing stages 3 and 4 in Singapore or elsewhere – Whatsapp discussion and sharing

Earlier groups on “Ageing together in JB” discussed the topic last 3 mths. Most of the discussions centered around where to stay, costs, knowing more about JB, convenience, interesting areas, moving around, transportion and risks staying in JB. Most participants are healthy, vibrant, hot, shoppers, looking fot best buys, eager to enjoy life, and always looking for company to go JB. I see many are in stages 1 and 2 of the ageing process, meaning got money, still working, healthy, can walk, very busy, full of vibrance and essentially mobile and not bed ridden. This brings us to the next discussion. Stage 3 and 4.

What do we do when we reach Stages 3 and 4? We cannot walk and maybe bedridden. And we cannot bathe ourselves, cannot eat our meals and medicine.

At stages 3 and 4, we may have to decide having a maid or move to a nursing home. Maybe someone will decide for us, where we stay. Which nursing home to go to?

Worse still, when there is insufficient medisave and savings run low. If we have filial children or family, they may only see us once a week.

How to afford the next medical appointment and medicine? Where to get a wheelchair? Where to get assistance?

When we decide to stay at home, and no one around, what to do? Youtube movies, maybe. And wait until the daughter-in-law or son comes home with some food.

Getting a maid is an idea, but what does it cost to have a maid at home? Or should we be moved to a nursing home? How affordable is this? In Singapore, JB or Batam?

Many of us dont think of stages 3 and 4. Wait until then, the situation will take care of itself. Maybe, we just gong suddenly and go to heaven.

We shall dedicate the next 3 mths on this topic. For those who are in Stages 3 or 4, not mobile and bedridden, come share with us your experience. It will be truly valuable.

Nothing shy and nothing to show off. Our time will come.

Registration to participate close 15 March 2020.

Discussion on how to learn and share the use of smartphones for seniors

Many Singaporeans know how to use WhatsApp. We use it to send messages and pictures to friends and family.

But, not all of us know how to use it to chat with a group of 5-8 friends. Few know we can comfortably see one another on the phone screen.

Singaporeans can easily make and change polyclinic appointments from the mobile phone. Travellers use Google maps to get from one place to another anywhere in the world. We can also check when the next bus arrives at our bus stop. it is also easy to book and pay for a Scoot flight from Singapore to Beijing. We can order our favourite pizza online.

We fumble and cannot find where to press. So, we rather go to the postoffice and queue. The phone can help us. Phone is not cheap.

As we age, the time will come when we are quarantined or we cannot move. Have to lie on the bed the whole day. The phone will be our friend.

Many members are equally familiar with these phone uses. We can share and learn. Lets learn from the guys and gals. Lets discuss how to go about “how to learn and share the use of smartphones for seniors”.

Global consumption has dropped. Demand is not there yet. Is this the right time to buy the dip? And when is the right time?

Are you optimistic or pessimistic about the current world situation? Govts, WHO and businesses are taking precautions to prevent a pandemic. Others are preparing for a rebound with a vengeance.

Many markets have dropped since end of 2019. Is this the right time to buy the dip?

We cannot meet face to face. But let’s share your thoughts and hear from other members.

Suggestions appreciated.

“Zoom” Cloud meetings – a new concept in SHC monthly gathering

Aside

COVID-19 has forced us to find new ways to gather together.

From your mobile phone, Zoom is a high definition meeting app with video and screen sharing. Zoom enables us to connect together with crystal-clear, face-to-face video, high quality screen sharing, and instant messaging.

I have been recommended to use “Zoom” for some monthly gatherings. I tested it recently and it worked well for up to 100 attendees. There is a cost to rent this app from the US software provider. We would also require support personnel to handle registration, and manage and cordinate the meeting.

For a start, we will take a free trial. I dont have a name for this event yet. Likely we will call this “SHC Zoom”. To participate, go to Playstore and install “Zoom Cloud meetings” app.

The first SHC Zoom meeting.

1. Topic: free and easy, self introduction.

2. Venue: Anywhere in the world, as long as u have WIFI.

3. Date/Time: Mon 24 Feb 1830 hrs, ends 2000hr.

4. Strictly for SHC members only.

5. Dress: Appropriately as you are on video.

** Meeting ID: 417-852-5736.
