The 15th day marks the first night of the full moon and also the end of Chinese New Year celebration. It is also known as Lantern Festival Day. Another reunion dinner for us to celebrate, a customary to have special sweet dumplings called YuanXiao also called TangYuan made of glutinous rice flour stuffed with sugar fillings, symbolizing a family unity and wholeness.
This festive is about rejoicing and cultivating positive relationship between people – friends and families. Another legend associates with higher beings ‘Ruler of Heaven’ responsible for good fortune, bestowing wealth and good luck.
To some, Chap Goh Mei is known as the Chinese Valentine’s Day – coz long time ago it was the only day that young maidens were allowed to dress up, stroll on the street and went to temples to pray, wishing to bestow a suitable match. Such believes are still practice to this day…
Let us know how do you celebrate your last day or Chap Goh Mei which falls on Friday, 26 February 2021…

We (Chan Keng Ngee, Katherine, Laura Wee, Jasmine Wong, Sandra Chuah, Lydia Chin, Annie Seah and me la) spent our morning touring Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum at the Kent Ridge Campus of the National University of Singapore. Officially opened on 18 April 2015.
The Museum currently has more than 560,000 catalogued lots in its collection and over a million specimens from throughout the region and about 2000 of these are exhibited in the museum’s galleries.
Everyone had a wonderful time walking thru these history memory lanes and also busy taking photographs to showcase too…
We initially scheduled to leave around 12 noon for our lunch but was delayed till 2pm as there were more to cover but time was not at our side as we can heard our stomach crying for food liao.
Eateries around NUS were either not opened to public or too much R&R to follow so we finally landed in Alexandra Village for our lunch.
Many thanks to ChanKN for making this trip possible as he got discounted lobang for entrance tickets. Till the next outing…

Lunar New Year have always been celebrated by Chinese community for many centuries and is an important occasion to have close bonding with children, grand-children, parents and grand-parents together for grand reunion. Not forgetting to visit friends and relatives too for long lasting friendship/fellowships. – I have numerous new friends added on my list this year thru SHC and likewise, I am sure that most of you feel the same.
On behalf of SilverHairsClub, we like to take this opportunity to wish all members and families a healthy and happy Rat Lunar New Year. It would be nice to see how interesting we can be as we enjoy our SilverHairs years along the way. Share with us here if you can. We are waiting to hear from each and every one of you too.
And for those members whom have been inactive for some time due to other commitments previously, do take this occasion to wish fellow members seasons’ greetings. We want to hear from you.
A Happy prosperous New Year to everybody. Here we share our thoughts and exchange our greetings too… Starts the ball rolling…
We have revised our membership application procedure, Simply fill up the form below, and your application will be emailed to Admin for approval. Successful approvals will receive an email reply within one month.
This year, we celebrate our 15th Anniversary. SilverHairsClub has been established since 2005, and we have been quietly successful through a network of Event Organisers EOs, Event Coordinators and members support who share our culture and traditions.
It’s about time we look again at succession and a new team to take the club forward. At 50, I founded the Club. Next year, I shall be 65, and will get to collect the 1st payment from my CPF. I am running out of ideas. And in reality, I don’t have so much time to spare for the club, as I intend to continue work till I die. On average, I spend about 3 days a mth in Singapore.
Every organisation needs continued succession and we need to review this from time to time.
I am now ready to hand over the club to someone or a team to take over and develop further the SilverHairsClub. My eyes will be focused on someone with SilverHairs at heart. Let’s reopen the discussion.
All of us have seen many National Days. We participate in parades, we contribute to our nation and build Singapore to what it is today. We watch NDP celebrations on TV, at the Padang and National Stadium. We are all proud of Singapore.
On behalf of SHC, on this grand occasion, let’s wish our ourselves and our country, “Happy National Day”.
This is an old post. As the new year is here, we can revive the SHC best hug again. Let’s give one another the hug after our new year greeting.
In recent days, some members including myself have been doing some bear hugging; and we thought it would be a good idea to develop the SHC Bear Hug. Whenever we meet, we can do the Bear Hug. Here’s how it works.
Both hands forward, right hand slightly higher than left hand.
Smile and walk towards the other person, and give a good hug for 3-5 secs.
Works for both men and women.
You can still operate with the typical hand-shake.
The SilverHairsClub name tag has the following specifications. Please design and print your name tag yourself, and put the card into a plastic holder, which can be hung around the neck or pinned on the shirt/dress. There is no need to standardize the design.
Every member makes their own name tag.
Size: 89mm x 51mm (3.5inch x 2inch)
Paper: Can be of any colour or material.
Font size: As bold as possible so that others can see your name from far. Any colour, shape or design.
Content: Your name. Must have the first and last name or first, middle and last name. No abbreviation. Company name not allowed; except when approved as a Corporate member.
Members can choose any background, picture or design.
This name tag should be used at all SilverHairsClub gathering.
SilverHairsClub has numerous small groups. When members meet members, and they click, a group is formed. The numbers in the group varies, and this depends on common interests.
SilverHairsClub supports the formation of small groups by Group Leaders GL. Each group has its own outings, its own chatgroup and its own interests. GLs updates their group on the SHC monthly gathering.
As I am unable to chat with members directly, the Group Leaders GL concept works very well for me and the Club. So, if you have a small group formed, plse contact me. Usually, your name will be tagged with the letter GL.
Group leaders GL stand up very well. They keep their group informed of Club activities, gather participation and has direct Whatsapp communication with me. GL do get direct updates from me and usually I do sought their comments and suggestions.
Join the monthly gatherings or interest groups, and you are on the way to becoming a SHC Group Leader GL. Find your interest and join a group,
SilverHairsClub’s objective is to provide a platform for SilverHairs to meet new and more friends.
We can have the May monthly gathering if a member raises his/her hand to be the EO. I won’t be available in May and June 2018.
If you have not been an Event Organiser for the monthly gathering, plse give it a good, as all members are expected to organise at least one event for the club.
One option is SilverHairsClub invites outside organisers to handle the monthly gathering. I would assume there will be an organising fee, if we are unable to organise the event ourselves. I hope members would make effort to be an EO, as the Club has expenses, and this is one way to keep the club going. We would therefore no need to hire external organisers.
SHC is taking one more step to expand its membership. Through Meetup, we are looking at new members, as young as 45. Membership is free; and the same club rules apply. All applicants for SHC membership will go through our normal procedures.
Currently, we have Andrew Koh leading and managing the SHC facebook channel. Before the end of 2018, I shall be looking out for one or two members to head the SHC meetup channel meetup.com/SilverHairsClub-Singapore/.
(This Post and idea were conceived and written on Nov 2010, 7 years ago. I must admit we had limited but natural organic success,
SHCians who have been with the club for a number of years will know that we have always been on the lookout for matchmakers. To avoid misunderstanding, the role was create with no intention to match-make boys with girls, or vice versa.
I had used this role name in the club to facilitiate the match making of members with similar interests. For example, a new member has joined the club, and is interested to find other friends with interests in tree climbing. Well, the match-maker will then look around his/her contacts in the club and introduce the like-minded members together.
The criteria to be a Match-mater are:
Has been with SHC for at least a year.
Is an active participant in this forum, and known to other members.
The tasks are:
To take care of new members (20 new members), as assigned by the club.
To assist the new members with finding their interest and participating in the activities.
To constantly keep in touch with these new members.
So, if you are keen to take up this role, please raise your hand. I will then be in touch with you; and you will be assigned new members. Initially, I am looking for 5 match makers.
