Event Cordinator for EC events

In the early days of SHC, we had EC events. As we move on with the club, we still require all SHC events to be EO events only.

However this requirement has become not practical for many events.

Today, SHC Admin, Dolly Lim, also a pioneer since 2005, proposed allowing for EC events . I shall review this and revert with a position in a weeks time.

1. SHC EO events can only be participated by Ordinary members.

2. EC events are organised by members, and partially participated by friends of members.

3. , SHC members, ECs, may publish their photos or videos in SHC Forum or Facebook.

Only mames, groups and photos of Ordinary members can be published in the forum.

4. We will not support anti SHC activities..

5. In doubt, consult the SHC admin Dolly Lim or Sally. Foo or myself.

For SHC Facement, approval can be given by Facebook admin Jean Lim. Facebook is more free for EC events

Eulogy for a Friend – A tribute to Ms Susan Tan

OBITUARY – Mdm Susan Tan Chwee Huay

Today, I want to share with you a very personal and emotional story. It’s about Susan Tan, who was my friend and committee member for Batam D&D many years ago. She passed away early this wee morning after suffering a stroke during a trip to Ipoh in September 2022. She was in her golden years.

Susan and I met when we were both part of the committee for the Batam annual dinner trip in 2018. We had to organize everything from the venue, the food, the entertainment, and the transportation. It was a lot of work, but we managed to pull it off. Susan, a very outspoken friend never shy to voice out her opinion. She was always ready to try new things and learn from her mistakes. She at times, a troublemaker who created havoc for others, but that is her, with a great sense of humor and a big heart.

Susan loved her family very much, they are her pride and joy. She would show me pictures of them and tell me stories about their achievements and adventures. She was indeed a devoted mother who wanted the best for them. An image she inculcate in her shows her strong responsibilities as a parent.

I used not to like Susan’s way for being so outspoken. Sometimes, she would say things that hurt my feelings or made me angry. But I also admired her for being direct, honest and courageous. She never a boastful person unless she wanted to make a joke. She was a fighter in life, who faced many challenges and obstacles with determination and resilience. I saw her cooking workshop in zoom – very karang and skillful to complete the event. Bravo for her GungHo attitude.

When I heard that Susan had a stroke, I was devastated with immediate rosary miracle prayer for her. I couldn’t believe that someone so full of life and energy could be struck down so suddenly. She managed to survive the stroke and was transferred to a nursing home, but was never fully recovered. She passed away peacefully in her sleep.

Now, I miss Susan with images floating in my memories of her. She was my dearest big sister, who taught me many things and supported me through thick and thin regarding SilverHairsClub. I know now she is resting at God’s side, and I hope she is happy and free from pain. I will always look upon the stars whenever I miss her.

Thank you for reading this eulogy for Susan Tan. She was a wonderful person who touched many lives. If you knew her, please share your memories of her in the comments below. And if you didn’t know her, please send your prayers and condolences to her family and friends.
“`

PS : I usually don’t do eulogy on public but she – my only big sister.

EO: Alice Tan | Co-EO: Christopher Tan

Let’s gather on 11/04/2023 @ 6pm to 9:30pm

Video created by Veronica Kok, EO Alice Tan BK. Sun 26 mthly gathering

The Mar mthly gathering was just over. Held at the Esplanade, unser the Helix bridge, the event went on very well. The weather was absolutely kind to all of us.

Alice, I am glad that there is tremendous show of fellow members getting together to get to know one another.

An Veron’s video is really fantastic. It captures the occasion very well. Under the open skies and Singapore’s most modern skyline, the singers sang and entertained fellow members.

So many helping hands. I thank the committee for the great show, the singers, the members who prepared the potluck, and the volunteers who picked up the lost sheep from the meeting point.

Share this video with your friends.

Making an online LPA presentation – a Zoom session

In 2020, we had a zoom session on how to make an LPA. The then EO was John Chua.

This time, we will have another zoom session on Mon Mar at 7.30 pm (1 hr) to share unclear thoughts on “Making an LPA”.

There has been a recent push again to make our LPA online. LPAs concern seniors.

Pls see this video clip before attending zoom discussion.

This session is recorded.

Cycling for Seniors

Most seniors like us turn to low-impact exercises and cycling is one to stay healthy in old age. We don’t have to be a great athlete to enjoy a ride.

Benefits (just to name a few):-

  • Indoor stationery or outdoor cycling improves balance and leg strength.
  • Give us more strength and stamina over time.
  • A great way to improve our mental health, is ideal for seniors who suffer from memory loss…
  • Is FUN and great supports for socializing when done in Groups ~ a great way to meet new friends.

EO – Douglas Chan (joined since 2005), our cycling enthusiast will guide you along your every trip, be it SG or JB.

My suggestion for silver hairs club – enhance the ideas

Here are some suggestions to enhance a silver hairs club.

  1. Offer a variety of activities: Seniors enjoy a wide range of activities, from exercise classes to social events. Make sure to offer a variety of options to cater to everyone’s interests and abilities.  .
  2. Create opportunities for socialization: Seniors often face social isolation, so it’s important to provide opportunities for them to connect with others. This could include coffee mornings, games, and group outings.
  3. Provide education and learning opportunities: Many seniors are eager to continue learning and exploring new topics. Offer classes or lectures on subjects that interest them, such as history, art, or current events.
  4. Incorporate technology: While not all seniors are tech-savvy, many are interested in learning more about technology. Provide classes or workshops on using smartphones, social media, or other digital tools.
  5. Invite guest speakers: Bring in guest speakers to talk about topics of interest to seniors, such as health and wellness, retirement planning, or local history.
  6. Offer volunteer opportunities: Seniors often have a wealth of experience and knowledge to share with others. Provide opportunities for them to volunteer in the community or within the club itself.
  7. Create a welcoming environment: Make sure that all members feel welcome and included, regardless of their background or abilities. Encourage a sense of community and belonging by celebrating members’ birthdays and other milestones.

Item 4 and 6 are looking forward to enhance it – looking forward for more volunteer to leverage the task.

How i budget my monthly expense

Managing personal finances is an important aspect of maintaining a stable and healthy lifestyle. It involves keeping track of expenses, creating budgets, and making informed financial decisions. There are two main types of expenses to consider when managing personal finances: fixed and variable expenses.

Fixed expenses are costs that remain the same each month, such as rent or mortgage payments, car payments, and insurance premiums. These expenses are essential and usually cannot be avoided. Fixed expenses are predictable and can be planned for in advance, making it easier to create a budget.

Variable expenses, on the other hand, are costs that can fluctuate from month to month. These expenses include things like groceries, entertainment, and travel. They are often discretionary expenses and can be adjusted based on your needs and priorities. It is important to monitor variable expenses carefully and make adjustments as necessary to avoid overspending.

When managing personal finances, it is essential to consider both fixed and variable expenses. By understanding the difference between the two types of expenses, you can create a budget that reflects your priorities and financial goals. This will help you to manage your money more effectively and avoid unnecessary debt.

For example, let’s consider a typical monthly budget that includes both fixed and variable expenses. Fixed expenses might include rent or mortgage payments, car payments, and insurance premiums. These expenses will likely add up to several hundred or even thousands of dollars each month. Variable expenses might include groceries, entertainment, and travel. These expenses can vary widely from month to month depending on your lifestyle and spending habits.

Suppose you have a monthly income of $3,000 and your fixed expenses amount to $1,500. This leaves you with $1,500 for variable expenses. You might allocate $400 for groceries, $200 for entertainment, $100 for travel, and so on. By creating a budget and tracking your expenses carefully, you can ensure that you are living within your means and avoiding unnecessary debt.

In conclusion, managing personal finances is a crucial skill that everyone should develop. Understanding the difference between fixed and variable expenses is essential for creating a budget that reflects your priorities and financial goals. By tracking your expenses carefully and making informed financial decisions, you can manage your money more effectively and avoid unnecessary debt.

Fixed expenses are those expenses that do not change or fluctuate with the level of activity or usage. They are typically recurring expenses that are paid on a regular basis, often monthly or annually. Examples of fixed expenses include rent, insurance premiums, loan payments, and subscription fees.

Variable expenses, on the other hand, are expenses that change based on the level of activity or usage. They tend to be more flexible and are not always recurring expenses. Examples of variable expenses include utilities, transportation costs, entertainment expenses, and groceries.

Part II : Here is an example of a list of fixed and variable expenses:

Fixed expenses:

  • Rent/mortgage
  • Property taxes
  • Insurance premiums
  • Loan payments (e.g., car loan, student loan)
  • Membership fees (e.g., gym membership, professional association fees)
  • Subscription fees (e.g., Netflix, Spotify)

Variable expenses:

  • Utilities (e.g., electricity, gas, water)
  • Transportation costs (e.g., gas, public transit fares)
  • Entertainment expenses (e.g., dining out, movie tickets)
  • Groceries
  • Clothing and personal care expenses
  • Home maintenance and repair expenses

It’s important to track both fixed and variable expenses to get a complete picture of your spending habits and to help you make informed financial decisions.

 

Part III : My budget from $1500 reduce to $549.17

Item Cost
Rental $200
Mobile $5
Credit card $100
Food $200
Transport $30
Town council $14.17
Total $549.17

 

 

How to perserve my peranakan culture with simple effort.

Peranakan culture is a unique blend of Chinese and Malay traditions that has evolved over centuries in Southeast Asia. If we would like to preserve this rich cultural heritage, here are some simple efforts can take:

  1. Learn about Peranakan culture: Educate yourself about the history, customs, and practices of the Peranakan community. Read books, watch documentaries, attend talks, and visit museums.
  2. Cook Peranakan food: The cuisine is a significant part of the Peranakan culture. You can learn to cook traditional dishes and share them with your family and friends.
  3. Use Peranakan-inspired decor: Incorporate Peranakan-inspired decor into your home. You can use traditional fabrics, ceramics, and furnishings.
  4. Wear Peranakan-inspired clothing: Wear Peranakan-inspired clothing, such as sarongs, kebayas, and batik prints.
  5. Attend Peranakan events: Attend Peranakan cultural events and festivals. You can learn more about the culture, meet members of the community, and support local artisans.
  6. Support Peranakan businesses: Buy from Peranakan-owned businesses to support the community and help preserve their cultural heritage.
  7. Share your knowledge: Share your knowledge and experiences with others. Educate your family, friends, and community about Peranakan culture and its significance.

International Women Day 2023

Happy International Women’s Day! On this special day, I want to express my love, appreciation, and empathy towards all the incredible women out there. You are the backbone of society, the nurturers of families, and the catalysts of change.

I want you to know that your struggles, your triumphs, and your voices are heard and valued. Your kindness, empathy, and resilience inspire us all. I hope that you always feel supported, respected, and loved.

May we continue to work towards a world where women are not only celebrated but also have equal rights and opportunities. May we raise our children to be respectful and empathetic towards all genders, and may we work together to build a better, more inclusive world for all.

Once again, Happy Women’s Day! Keep spreading love and empathy, and know that you are cherished.

Bangkok Trip 26 – 29 March 2023

Updates!!!
Hotel chosen : Ibis Bangkok Siam
Flight Details
26/03 SIN – BKK Scoot608 Depart 0700 Arriving 0830
29/03 BKK – SIN Scoot605 Depart 1455 Arriving 1820

Cost (Flight & Hotel) : $372.15/pax 
a) Based on twin sharing @ Ibis Hotel.  For 1 single, the cost is estimated at $496/pax.
b) Handcarry bag (7kg) only
c) 15kg Baggage, extra charge of $54 for both ways
d) Departing on the next morning timing, will be incurring another $17 extra/pax
e) You will need to get travel insurance individually which we can map out later

Both Pattiya and I are planning a F&E Bangkok Trip from March 26 – 29 2023. This trip will be done solely on own timing/agenda as well as going thru obstacles with public transport – BTS and MRT, buses and others.

Maximum to go : 16 fully paid members (inclusive of Pattiya and myself), we still go ahead even we dont have 16 members.

POIs intended to adventure are as follows:

  1. Iconsiam- White Orchard River Cruise – Dinner Cruise
  2. Leng Saap Restaurant – Strongly recommended by Pattiya for their speciality – Pork Ribs
  3. Maeklong Railway Market (hope tht I got this place right) – interesting place whereby both train and market peddlars are using the same location giving way to each other whenever needed.  A POI that definitely a go.
  4. As for night market, as there are too many locations these days so we will choose 1 once we confirmed the hotel that we intended to stay
  5. Not forgetting spa and massages to look out for too.
  6. For those interested for shopping – maybe can try if 1 can get Korean Hanbo for the coming SHC D&D – Good suggestions right…
  7. For those keen of cafe hunting for coffees and cakes, there will be no short of these too.
  8. Last but not least, night spots to enjoy before we headed home

For 4D/3N, the above POIs will keep us very busy, I am sure.

I will be checking on the airfare/hotel packages thru travel agent first as the last check for online booking for both airfare/hotels will be around $330/pax based on the twin sharing.  My personal preference will be if Travel Agent’s quote is only less more that $50+, we will go for travel agent’s arrangement.  Of course, I am not stopping those to go direct to book online but on 1 clause, try to get the same hotel to save time

I would also like to advise for those going for this trip that have not taken 4th jab, to go for flu jab for protection.

Members going:
1) Pattiya
2) Dolly Lim
3) Alan Ang
4) Cheng WK
5) Terry Chun

HUAT ah… Abundance of Wealth and Long Life

A Combinatorial Chinese New Year Tradition – is a festive ritual that brings families, relatives and friends together to invoke wishes for year ahead. A magical moment or bonding, “tossing up good fortune” – the higher they are mixed and lifted, the more prosperity it is intended to bring.

Coupled with the loud and joyous HUAT AH!!! – this colourful tossing is a boisterous Lunar New Year highlight with each ingredient has a symbolic, auspicious phrase to be exclaimed as it is added to the platter.

Wishing all SHC Members a HAPPY LUNAR NEW YEAR 2023…
