The long waited SHC cycling event finally went on smoothly on:
Date : 17July 2021
Meeting Point : “Go Cycling” Bike Rental Kiosk
Time : 1630hrs for those that need to rent the bicycle
(Supposed to start at 1700hrs but was slightly delayed as some arrived abit late)
Destination : ECP ===> MBS
A total of 10 members were there to kick start this event:
1) DouglasC – EO
2) Ronald Lam – CoEO
Sadly that YK was only to meet later on the our return to rental kiosk after cycling.
Despite of slight delay, weather was hot and humid but all members shown great enthusiasm with SereneL started to cycle first with the rest of us followed up later. Many pics attached can attest.
Bonding can be seen amongst members from the starting point to Tanjong Rhu (1st rest point) finally to MBS. As much as everyone wanted to mingle around but was constantly kept reminding by DouglasC and RonaldL for safe distancing measures. Kudos to DouglasC and RonaldL.
While 3 of us continued to cycle further and stopped to watch NDay rehearsal but the rest need to get back to rental kiosk due to time constraint and proceed to have dinner at EC food centre. As for us, we had a dinner at St Marc while cycling to ECP.
Hope that SHC monthly cycling event will continue henceforth from now… Cheers..

Those born in July are either Cancer (June 21 – July 22), a symbol of Crab OR Leo (July 23 – Aug 22), a symbol of Lion…
True or False
A lady born in July is noble, very timid and occasionally stingy. She is good at cooking. A one in a million lady – not open to criticism – for sure you don’t really want to get near because she won’t take it.
July-born man seems to wear a frown on his forehead. Quite introverted and is indeed a family guy. Loves art and painting. Not someone whom you will consider very generous or let’s just say he is a big fan of money.
On behalf of SilverHairsClub – we’d like to wish all the July babies an amazing month.
PS – do drop a line or 2 to all who are celebrating their birthday month…HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Grab ‘n’ Go – presented by Ms Marlene Yap, Saturday, 26 June 2021 @ 10:30am
Why Grab n Go? Ms Marlene Yap, being a Diet Freak herself, talks about her unique offering of freshness, pictorial appeal, quick service, portable packaging, value and healthy options – another direction that is hassle-free than dine-in meals, but just as enjoyable.
Marlene’s MOTTO – Principles of healthy Eating… Demand for Quality Ingredients!
Nowadays, consumers are more discerning than ever before. They tend to spend more on their food if they know the finished product are made of imported ingredients, maintain ethical and ensure their meals are healthy and freshly made. Marlene’s cooking style is fuss-free and zero wastage. She loves merging cuisine and creating fusion recipes…
Her recommendation for today – Homemade Premium XO Sauce – with an umami flavour, commonly used as an enhancer or table condiments.

After Afi’s personal achievement was shared in a Facebook group, an experienced cyclist Loh Yew Kwong gave Afi an OCBC Ride 2021 medal to encourage him.

No matter what our age are – our father is our role model and the connection is wonderfully complex. Forging a strong father-child relationship can be hard work, but the lasting bond formed can make all our effort worthwhile…
Yet, another bouts of Covid-19 cases rising – let’s make this day a stay home day and show our dad that we love him for being who he is and for all that he had done for us… I am sure that is the greatest gift of all… gratitude and affection.

Ever since I am being appointed as SHC Admin in the SilverHairsClub.Com, I do have throngs of members speaking ill of me, not only in their circle of groups / one to one verbal n msg / etc… just to mention a few.
These inconsiderate beings who have nothing better to do with their spare time but rather spike / malign / defame / criticize about others.
Before going forward to do all these – take a look at yourself in the mirror – are you the Mr n Ms Perfect – if not, refrain from doing so – coz such ill ions in our human body will only do more harm to us causing anxiety, irritability, breathing difficulty and again just to name a few.
Majority of SHCians are half-century-old. What do we gain out of it by maliciously, viciously spiking at others? I, for sure, gain nothing out of being SHC Admin, this is a voluntary role which I believe no one loves to suck on it. But if anyone is interested, he or she is most welcome to take over any time.
What prompt me to write this post? Coz time and time again, I do receive such hateful remarks and maybe who knows my ancestor might have provoked theirs…. Hahahaha…. And this is my payback time? Don’t forget this old saying…. “What goes around comes around?”
I would truly love to hear more honest feedback from this post… all comments are welcome. Thank you.
I realise that I have been losing energy and feeling breathless last one year. Late last year, TTSH docs advised me to be prepared for water dialysis. Sounds like an exciting adventure and stage of my life.
Last Monday, I was admitted to TTSH for suspected fever and infection. The hospital also drew 2 kg of water making my weight now 72kg, instead of 75kg when I arrived.
Well, today the advice is to start blood dialysis quickly today.
I have been getting queries from members. And in order not to have bits and pieces of information from diff sources, I shall update this Post regularly.
I am fine mentally. SHC will move on, We are making arrangements to plan forward next 5-10 years. I am glad to have very strong support from Jean Lim. And the many members, pioneer and newer, who believe in the SHC objective. Tq.
This week session [05 June 2021] is hosted by Ms Josephine Wong – another one of our SHC foodie cum private chef. Went to SHATEC to build her foundation… who has an ardent interest in food – eats not only out of hunger but also as a hobby – someone who enjoys cooking for family and pleasure.
This day, she shares with us her passion…
I am sure we do have many more like-minded SHCians who are very good in cooking. Food is one of the most powerful connective tools we have. To build our bonds over a meal – FOOD indeed is a shared cultural product.
Do come forward to host and share with us what your family and friends like most.

Born in the 6th month of the year, JuneBs are known to be social butterflies because of their outgoing, charismatic, charming and creative traits… even though they can be more than a handful at times due to their extremely inquisitive and childlike optimistic nature. They are great communicators and can easily attracts everyone’s attention. Sensitive and caring towards other’s feelings.
The month in which you were born fall under the sign of Gemini, can reveal a lot more than you think about who you are as a person both on the inside and on the outside. June’s birthstone is a pearl, which represents innocence and purity. Often talkative, they enjoy debating and getting into deep conversations where they can exercise their active minds.
On behalf of SilverHairsClub – we’d like to wish all the June babies an amazing month.
PS – do drop a line or 2 to all who are celebrating their birthday month…

Morning everyone,came across this new clip that sad me but hope everyone to read with open mind.
During a recent zoom meeting, someone say that we must embrace the new technology with open arm – to like it or not also must accept it as move on. Cannot give any excuses but try your best through trial and errors.I strongly urge everyone to step out to try, to fail and to learn with persistence.

ps : i will try my best to guide SHC members with this digital knowledge to equip their New order in our future zoom training.
Put on your request to Terrence what are the topic you like to learn : How to use
This forum is an online “meeting place” and it is used to engage with others or groups of the same interest gather together so they can discuss or debate, share knowledge and communicate with others about something or provide useful information. It is like a message board, where members create a POST and can hold conversations in the form of posted messages.
The Club provides a forum for SHCians interested to network with others. Today, session is indeed fruitful. Terence has arranged it to enable more SHCian to be engaging and create awareness on their current activities. Based on the recent feedback survey, numerous members do have difficulty in accessing the forum.
One member quoted – I am still blur what WordPress is – Simply put, WordPress is web publishing software SHC use to create her own website or blog.
How does forum work? A user creates a post. That post can be accessed by other users at any time. It can contain questions, opinions, images, videos, link and more. Users can respond to the post, which creates a dialogue other user can participate in also known as a Thread.
Thanks to Terence, Howard, Yoon Chin n Steve… we are here to share – please click on the video link to view more… We highly encourage members to register in Silverhairsclub.com and be a Contributor.
Keep a lookout for the next session…
Have a look at our 2nd session on SHC Forum via WordPress held on Wednesday, 26 May 2021.
Our mothers are all superMUM and the family biggest supporters – always there for us and give us a listening ear. Give a big hug to the woman in your life, it means a world to them – tell them enough how much we love and appreciate them. Show them our gratitude and affection.
This day it’s best to stay home and order delivery to celebrate Mother’s Day safely amid this pandemic. Grant her a rest n relaxing day.
They are considered strong – known for their strength of mind, body and spirit.
Tend to be born tinier than those born in other months – some are shorter, lighter and have smaller heads.
They are driven to succeed – strong-willed and deeply emotional, possess inborn 6 sense that helps them navigate through life – can be stubborn, but their critical, systematic ways of thinking help them to get stuff done.
Often have Wanderlust – restless n curious, always itching to explore the world, bitten by the travel bug, exploration is not simply a distraction but it’s a way of life. They are the last to complain about hectic lifestyles.
May-born Parents are the BEST – their kiddos can count themselves among the lucky ones; they are devoted, well-organized, resourceful and creative… Plus point for May-born spouses, both are affectionate and funny.
Watch your wallets with May-born people – born in this month are notorious spendthrifts, BUT if they set their minds to save money, they’re also the most committed to doing so.
The 2 zodiac signs associated with this month are Taurus and Gemini. The practical Taurus can be known by their earthy and realistic ways of living. Gemini has a talkative, abstract, extreme intelligence that flies past – ready to go and do.
On behalf of SilverHairsClub – we would like to wish those SHCians born to this month a wonderful HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!
PS – do drop a line or 2 to send them wishes on their birthday month…
