Suggestion for forum log in

During our previous monthly gathering and zoom meeting – always heard members lament forget their user log in this forum. Some even can’t recall their email account. Also our Admin support like Ms Yoon Chin and Ms Dolly patiently assist to amend to reset.

Can i suggest our “user name” to be input as last 4 digit of Nric or Mobile so that member won’t be able to forget their log in.

Hope that will help and encourage more to log into this forum to share and contribute.

SHC two new Zoom entertainment – the Xiao Xiao and the gossip channels during Covid-19

For a long time, SHC has been looking out for members who stand out to make other members happy and entertainment. These members usually can talk, non-stop.

Frisna Tan does customer surveys with passengers at the Singapore airports. Some of you may have bumped into her at the airport which waiting to enter the gates. Frisna is also a keen gardener. She is a member of SHC Gardening group. Join her if you have green fingers. Frisna will be hosting our Xiao Xiao channel.

Howard Yong is a Baba. Once he starts on a topic, he can carry on non-stop. His speciality is gossip. Talk about foreign wives, dealing with govt agencies, squeezing his duck rice seller and buying a BTO flat. Any topic to gossip, he is game. But you must be prepared to sit down and listen. Toss him a question, and he will be able to get you engaged for the next one hour. Howard had an unusual sleep pattern. He sleeps at 9pm, so no program latter than 9pm.

We shall be scheduling these two channels. Stay tune.

How to be a co-host of a Zoom account? Practice Sun 16 and Sun 17 May 2020

This will be the last series of training sessions on how to use Zoom.

Zoom is a video conference app used to communicate LIVE with friends, colleaques and students.  SHC has already conducted one week of basic ‘How to use Zoom?”.

However,  there is a difference between being a host of a paid Zoom account, compared with a free Zoom account.

This Sat 16 May and Sun 17 May, we have allocated Zoom time, starting 1400 hrs and ending 1700 hrs.

  1.  Participants are given Co-Host rights during the practice period.  Similar to those with a paid account.
  2.  You get to practice all Zoom admin functions with SHC friends.  So, come early  at 1400 hrs so that you can be assigned a group of friends.  Every group will have 30 mins to play around the Zoom co-host features.  You will then return to the main hall, for coffee break, before being assigned another room for another practice group.  We close practice at 1700 hrs.

Our Paranakan friends among us

Singapore Paranakan 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 Paranakan, 

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.  Paranakans are usually educated and are able to speak the father’s language and mother’s dialect.

We have a number of members who are Parankans.  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 Paranakan include Malacca, Penang, Phuket, Paranakarm food, baju kebaya and the sarong.

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

good memories.

What and where to eat today? Come share with other SHC members.


Can you beat these places?

1/3 of our life is spent eating.  So, “what and where to eat ” are favourite talking points.  Probably, food is a great way to get to know more friends.  That’s why we always hear “Sudah makan?”, after lunch time.

Food is the easiest topic in any discussion.  There is Hokkien, Hakka or Cantonese style dishes.  There are Thai, Indonesian, and italian dishes too. Where to eat?  Many places are hidden, and some of us know where to find tasty dishes, old fashioned Hokkien mee at some faraway corner, at really good prices.

I have always tried to look for topics and reasons for SHC members to meet.  Well, food is a good reason.  With Covid-19 still around us,  let’s use SHC Zoom to meet, talk and share “What and where to eat?”.  and meet new and old friends.

Let us meet every Sat 11.30 am to 12.30pm.  The main table can be as big as we like.  For those who like smaller tables, we can seat you in separate private rooms of 4-6 pax (automatic free seat assignment).  Come join us, and you can see how SHC Zoom works for big and small groups.  Get your friends to meet you at 11.30 am every Sat.

DAY FOURTEEN OF CB – What have you been up to?

Hi Dear All.

It is tough trying to work from home for such a long period of time. But we have to do what we have to do to keep safe. From Mondays to Fridays, I have my laptop turned on from 8.30am to 5.30pm. In between checking on my work, I watch the news from around the world and home. Everyday we read and hear about what COVID-19 is doing to the world, it sometimes gets quite scary and worrisome. But getting respite from the situation, you get people doing things that make you laugh – instead of the avalanche of sad news on COVID-19 on every TV and radio channel.

On my part, I only go out, with mask on, for grocery shopping only when its absolutely necessary. If I need items that I do not have, I use something that I already have as a substitute. I write down my shopping list. Go into the market/supermarket and buy what I need and leave the place asap.

I google for recipes that I have never tried before and experiment on them. Mostly turn out good because I choose those with many reviews and with a five star ratings. So far, from Day One to Day Thirteen, I have not repeated any meal for lunch and dinner. I have baked different types of cakes and breads. My youngest daughter and I embarked on a Sourdough Project and we have baked several lovely loaves of sourdough breads which we enjoy for our breakfasts.

I have started to learn how to play the ukelele (my second daughter gave me a beautiful one and I never got around to learn how to play it until now) and I am enjoying it.

I practise dancing on my own and doing dance exercises to keep fit cos there have been loads of input.

Group chatting with family and friends, sharing jokes and latest updates on almost anything under the sun keeps me sane and watching the Youtube channels.

After COVID-19 is defeated, I would love to travel (had to cancel my trip in April and June), catch up with family and friends and go jalan jalan at the malls and browse the supermarket shelves, slowly.

If you like, you can share with us what you have been doing and what you would love to do when the COVID-19 virus is defeated?

In the meantime, follow the rules, take care and keep safe.

Caroline Gee aka Carly

P.S. Terence, will try to get to doing the recipe requested. Hopefully soon.

Let’s have “Morning Breakfast” together. Every Mon – Fri 7.30am – 8.30am

Hi everybody,

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.

Dont be shy.  Quickly introduce yourself as not everybody knows you, Share the latest news you heard the night before or any global news early in the morning.

“Sunday Rise and Shine”: Sun 0700 – 0800 hr

SilverHairsClub members are creative and have brilliant ideas. Here’s one suggestion which we picked up recently. How about getting up early from bed on a Sunday morning? Quickly tidy the bed, make a cup of hot coffee, squeeze in a small pau and look at the mirror.

7.00am:
It’s already 7am. Quickly, pick up the mobile phone, and let’s meet up on SHC Zoom, and wish those around us “Hi everybody, It’s Sunday Rise and Shine”.  Make sure you have space to swing your hands around your body.

7.15am:
Time for a 10 mins exercise together to stretch and loosen the bones. Everybody is muted, except for the Shifu and video.

7.30am:
Zoom unmutes everybody. Time to relax and cool down. Finish the coffee, with some youtiao. And maybe, share your hot soya bean milk with friends. A quick chat with friends, and off we run to start the day.

8.00am: Event close.

** If you are a Taichi or slow stretch instructor, please contact any senior member, we would like you to co-host this regular event.

** It’s fine to speak Hokkien, Cantonese, Teochew,  Malay or Tamil.  The fun is being together.  Bring your friends.  “Sunday Rise and Shine” is open to non-SHC members.

Join us at https://zoom.us/j/4178525736?pwd=azNDN3ZWWVVwYUhrU3dZb0RTSmR1UT09

**  Latest:  This Sunday event is discontinued,  Feedback:  too early to wait up on a Sunday and not easy to exercise together online.

“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.

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.

A Visit to Sembawang Hot Spring Park

Date : March 5 2020
Time : From 12noon till 4.00pm – You can leave anytime you like..

Planning to go for Sembawang Hot Spring Park since it last re-opened for public but always no time to do so. But for now, it seems to be a fairly good idea to pay a visit to enjoy natural hot spring.

Those members with the same mindset as I, are welcome to join me to have a dip in the hot spring water for 10 – 20mins, boil eggs? and etc…

What to bring?
Towels, swimsuit, extra clothings, footwear and umbrella and not to forget drinking water. You may also need to bring plastic carriers to keep those wet towels, swimsuit and clothings.

Then after soak/dip followed shower, we can proceed to have tea with cakes.

See you when I see you there.. Cheers… Dolly
