Zonal Meeting – Boleh Boleh! In The Clementi Mall

The 7th Zonal meet-up managed to make its way on Friday, 16 April 2021 to Boleh Boleh! located at 3155 Commonwealth Ave West #04-20/22, Singapore 129588.  The session starts from 11am and end slightly after 3.30pm with the 2 EOs at their helms to make sure no one was left out.

We had 11 members signed up and all turned up for this makan and friendship bonding.   We had to split into 2 tables to observe safe distancing measures.  They are:-

  • VincentH – EO
  • ChanKH – Co-EO
  • AnneC
  • ChengWK
  • DollyL
  • FongWC
  • JessieO
  • StellaS
  • MargaretS
  • SherryW
  • EveC

Many interesting discussions on wellness & health, tours & holidays and current activities besides Zonal meet-up, were shared and discussed among members.  I must say that mission accomplished for each and every one especially for me, longing for this catch-up with ex-colleague cum friend of 25years, MargaretS was to no avail till now.

Some of us need to leave by 2pm but both 2 EOs together with Cheng were still chatting while waiting for the remaining members to turn up.

Lastly, kudos to VincentH and ChanKN for their efforts towards this meet-up as well as Cheng for his company, we can see from photos of many smiling or laughing faces.  BTW, do make a guess, where and when will the next Zonal meet-up be?  Or why not give us an option or suggestion and liaise with ChanKN and he will create a future meet-up link…  the continuation will be ongoing and happening again…

Cheers… DollyL

Our Peranakan friends among us

Singapore Peranakan culture can be traced to their links in MalaccaSingapore, and Penang.  Originally from the southern provinces of China, the immigrants travelled south to Peninsula Malaysia, inter-married and created a distinct culture Peranakan, 

According to Laura Wee, Nyonya is the term for women and Baba for men.  These terms apply to the populations of Chinese descent in the British Straits Settlements and the island of Java and other locations, which have adopted the Nusantara customs and most have lived for generations along the Straits of Malacca.  Peranakans are usually educated and are able to speak the father’s language and mother’s dialect.

We have a number of members who are Peranakans.  Some of whom I know include Kenneth Tan, Agnes Seow,  Sue Chan, Laura Wee and Catherine Soon.  I also remember Ronald Wie.  Keys words associated with Peranakan include Malacca, Penang, Phuket, Peranakan food, baju kebaya and the sarong.

Since our first fashion parade, and for a long time, I have wanted to gather the Peranakans together.  We shall form the Peranakan group now, and if you are Peranakan, please WhatsApp “Peranakan” to +65 9489 4360.  We shall gather you together to share your family history, culture, traditions, dress and food.

good memories.

An unusual experience taking trains in Singapore

I think this is a good intro to Terence Seah. And, I encourage all of you to share more about yourself. I shall start. The story is embarassing.

Two days ago, I went to Bukit Batok station to meet a friend. From Hougang, I took the NE line to Outram Park and then connect EW line to Jurong East and then take the NS line to Bukit Batok station. It was easy.

After my meeting, I went back to Bukit Batok station to go home. I got into the train and sat down. 10 mins later, I realised that I just past Kranji station. Aiyah, I decided to carry on the journey passing Yishun and AMK. I was bored and fell asleep.

When I worked up, I realised my train had stopped and there was no one else inside. I got out and found that I was at Marina South Pier. The station look like a beautiful modern “ghost town” station. I waited and waited and finally a train arrived.

I took this NS line, connect at Dhoby Ghaut and then via the NE line to Hougang.

This is where I start to think about myself, train stations, and what it feels to have crossed 60. My purple card hit an error at the gates, so I went to info counter. The officer looked at me and asked me where I came from, and I reply “Bukit Batok”. He also asked me what I was doing inside the trains all the while. I thought this was a “trick” or “trying to be funny” question, but I calmly replied “waiting for trains at Marina South Pier”.

Then, the officer smiled and said “No problem, I shall reset your card”. As he led me to the gate, he asked me, “Sir, have you taken train before?

I was confused there and then. Did I really spent 2 hours inside the train network? Still unsure.
