Tours and makan alert by members and non-members

The Club encourages members to organise and EO these trips. These trips do require deposits payable by members in advance and then payable to the travel agent.

There may be reasons and things do go wrong. The EO may cancel the trip, change the travel agent and fail to pay the travel agent.

Members are then confused as to what has happened with their monies and what to do next.

Then, starts the blame game. Members like to travel in groups.

I encourage members to

1. Pay deposits direct to the travel agent. It is your risk if you pay to any another other persons.

2. Get a receipt for the deposit, especially big amounts.

3. Be sure u know the travel agent or the transport company.

4. Some organisers are SHC members but some are not members or have exited the Club. Pls check before joining their tours

5. Bad incidents have recently.

This is an alert. This is your choice.

Update on my hospital stay last week.

Tq everybody for your concern.

I thot I shall update myself here, as there are hundreds of messages every day about my health, and I am unable to respond.

Yes, I had a 2nd heart attack, an unusually low BP, below 80 levels, leading to a blood infection which require moving my dialysis point from the chest to my groin.

The infection has caused severe chills, despite the cold air conditioning at TTSH. 7 blankets did not help. And my leg joints were just painful.  Further, blood tests are required and one more surgery expected.

Jean Lim has been with me all this while.   And she is well updated.  Tq for her care all this while.

I will be moving to the general ward, but have to apologise I wish to rest and unable to take visitors.

I enjoyed all the strange stories about this hospital stay, many are very wrong, but I guess concern was at heart. Pls do not circulate other stories, except from this forum.

For this reason, I had been pushing with succession, and will pushing again in keeping SHC team moving.

Since 2005, it has my been my desire to help seniors find friends of common interest and keep loneliness at bay. So, stay social and dont fight.

Terence Seah

What is Silver Hair Club anniversary mean to me

Here is an article I wrote about the SilverHairsClub as a journalist:

The SilverHairsClub: A Social Platform for Singaporeans Over 45

Singapore is known for its fast-paced and competitive society, where people often work long hours and have little time for leisure and socializing. However, there is a group of Singaporeans who are not willing to let their age or busy schedules stop them from having fun and making friends. They are the members of the SilverHairsClub, a social club for Singaporeans and PRs over 45 years old.

The SilverHairsClub was established in October 2005 by a fairy godmother who wanted to create a platform for people in her age group to meet new and more friends, share experiences and interests, and participate in various activities and events. The club is free to join and has a strict policy of no politics, religion, sex, race, direct selling & MLM. The club has more than 25 employees who help to run the club’s operations and ensure its smooth functioning.

The club has a website and a Facebook group where members can find information, updates, and announcements about the club and its activities. The club organizes monthly gatherings at different venues where members can socialize, network, and have fun. The gatherings usually have a theme or a topic of interest. For example, the September monthly gathering will be held at Big Appetite, a restaurant at Suntec City that offers a wide choice of food and seating space.

The club also organizes trips and tours to various destinations, both local and overseas. Some of the recent trips include Melaka, Kukup, JB, Penang, Ipoh, and Bangkok. The trips are designed to cater to different preferences and budgets of the members. For instance, the 3D2N Melaka, Kukup & JB shopping tour costs S$268 per person for twin sharing and includes Nonya lunch, BBQ dinner, porridge supper, sky lanterns, fireworks, fish spa, games, mahjong, karaoke, coconut milk shake, snacks, and shopping.

The club has a forum where members can post their introduction, feedback, suggestions, or queries. The forum also has categories for different topics such as travel, hobbies, health, finance, etc. The forum is a place where members can interact with each other and exchange ideas and opinions. The forum also serves as a channel for members to voice their concerns or complaints if they encounter any issues or problems with the club or its activities.

The club is always open to new members who share its vision and values. The club welcomes anyone who is over 45 years old and is a Singaporean or PR to join the club and enjoy its benefits. The club aims to provide a friendly and supportive environment for its members to enrich their lives and have fun.

If you are interested in joining the SilverHairsClub or learning more about it, you can visit their website or Facebook group. Alternatively, you can contact Terence Seah, the fairy godmother’s assistant, for more information.

An investigation

Hi SHC members,

An investigation is currently underway. This involves threats and violence, and police report.

If the final conclusion is valid and true, the member involved will be dismissed and exited from the club.

All club members will be informed, and will be asked to exit from all activites and groups, organised by the investigated person.

This is a serious issue, and SHC cannot tolerate any such occurence and threats.

Fairy God mother has been been alerted. She sound grouchy.

If you have feedback or complaint, plse type FEEDBACK or complaint. You can be sure it will remain P&C.

Tq.
