Zonal Meet-up Buddy Hoagies Steak & Grill Restaurant (East Point)

The 6th Zonal meet-up finally landed on Friday, 19 March 2021 at 3 Simei Street 6, #02-06 East Point, Singapore 528833.  The session is from 1:30pm – 3:30pm which stretched beyond till 4:15pm.

We had 14 members signed up and turned up for lunch and friendship bonding.  They are:-

  • Chan KN – EO for Table 1
  • Vincent Hee
  • Bobby Bok
  • Doreen Ong
  • Ann Giri
  • John Howe
  • Eve
  • Anne Choi – EO for Table 2
  • Janet Loo
  • Agnes Seow
  • Sandra Chuah
  • George
  • Sherry Wong
  • DollyL

Many interesting discussions on shares, wellness & health, tours & holidays when borders open were shared and discussed among members.  Of cos, not forgetting the affordable set meals at Buddy.  Everyone was too engrossed in the bonding moment where time to leave was no longer important.  hahaha….

But, sad to say, all happy moment still needs to end at 4:15pm.  However, nothing seems to hold back couple of members to accept the invite from AnneC to adjourn to DBR – Home Dining whereby we had a jolly good time served with special brewed healthy blue pea tea and pomelo fruit.

Thank you, AnneC and ChanKN for making this meet-up possible as we can see from photos of many smiling/laughing faces.  Don’t believe, see for yourself lor…

Cheers… DollyL

2021-03-05 Zonal Meet Up @ Toa Payoh HDB Hub

I would like to take this moment to thank both ChanKN and DollyL to initiate and organize Toa Payoh Zone as the 5th location. It is a food paradise within walking distance.

Original plan to hold it at TPY KouFu was switched to Fork & Spoon at the last hour due to mid-afternoon crowd bombarded mostly by seniors in a matured estate. Both ChanKN and myself were early trying to secure 2 long tables of 8 pax but failed. A quick decision to switch location was made coz I am confident there are afternoon vacant tables there… I quickly rushed over to recce and manage to get 2 long tables by 3:00pm.

After much hiccups, we [3] managed to gather 11 members to join us at Fork & Spoon. The remaining 5 stayed at KouFu and ordered their food instead which is good for us coz it is indeed a big group.  Namely, DavidO n LilianC, AnnieS, SherryW and RichardW.

Photo images of both locations and food ordered showed a successful bonding amongst the members, from initial Koufu to Fork & Spoon and later adjourned to Gourmet Paradise for famous Soon Heng Rojak shows it all.

Meanwhile at Fork & Spoon – we received a SOS call that some of them were unsure of the location. Hence, we took the initiative to go and ferry them here. Though a bit disorganized in the location but am glad we can see smiling faces amongst them gleefully enjoy the remaining hours in deep entertaining discussion on travels, gardening tips and not forgetting SRVouchers on how to redeem it.

I must say to shout out loud or applaud to SherryW, our ardent Zonal fan, who took the effort to join the remaining team at Fork & Spoon.

Overall, this Zonal catch-up bonding is a salute to all participating member who made it happen. Images shows it all as the saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words”.

Looking forward to the next bonding…

Zonal Meeting @ NEX – 28 December 2020

Our 4th Hangout at Food Junction – NEX with EO Melissa Khng assisted by ChanKN [from 11:30am to 03:00pm].

Our darling, EO Melissa, was there at 10:45am, putting bag, water bottles to chop 3 section of 6-pax seating arrangement to ensure that all members can be seated comfortably upon their arrival.  But, regret to say that at times, situation just not in our favour, so, very unreluctantly, we finally decided to say bye bye to 1 section as the lunch crowds kept increasing and every eyes were staring at our sides liao… paiseh lah!

At strike of 12.15pm, members were seen coming towards us with Melissa busy allocating seats for them since there was only 9 seats reserved instead of the original 15.  Then came a member with shiny armour (Bobby Bok) had graciously offered to buy each and every member a drink.  Sue Chan and Lina Ng were also sharp enough to spot on another table near to us to make the group complete in 1 corner.  It was indeed a show of cooperation among these members to ensure a safe distancing.

What happened next – Aiyo!!!  Of cos, chatting, networking and taking of photos lah.. and not forgetting our lunches too.  It was indeed an afternoon well spent.  Till we meet again…

Cheers!

SHC community in postal codes 60, 61, 62, 63 and 64. 1st 2 digits of 6-digit postal codes

IMM Spore

Come join SHC Jurong, Tuas group

Since SilverHairsClub was first established in 2005, all our activities and venues were centered within the CBD and East Singapore regions.

Although our bus and MRT network have made it easy to meet, there has been a reluctance from members leaving in the West and North to join activities because of distance. Very often, it can take one hour to travel between East and West Singapore, more so if activities are held on weekdays for working members.

We are looking at ways to make it easy for West Singapore members to meet in smaller groups. We reviewed our postal code system, and see that using the 1st 2 digits of our 6-digits as the community group can help members get together more frequently and conveniently.

We shall start with postal codes 1st 2 digits 60, 61, 62, 63 and 64. Mainly in Jurong and Tuas.

If you are living in these postal codes, as per your NRIC, and would like to join this community, please whatsapp text ‘zone 60-64’ to 9489-4360. The Club hopes that this project will help members meet new and more Silverhairs friends.

SilverHairsClub – Westend Singapore

One suggestion that came out from recent brainstorming ideas on “Bringing SHC to the next level” is to have a regular gathering for members who live in West Singapore.  Reason given was many of our activities are centred around the city or in the East.

We had a couple of gatherings in the West; but this gatherings did not continue due to a lack of follow-up.  Some members would like to continue with Westend gatherings; and I thought we can give this suggestion a kick again.

Past few gatherings were held at JEM or Jurong East, where JE MRT is located.  Please recommend a venue.  It does not have to be at JE, but as long as it is located where a MRT is, I guess the suggested venue will work.

From experience, it is difficult to mix retirees and part-time working members with full time working members.  So, we may need to have two gatherings; one on a weekday for retirees and one on a weekend for working full time members.

Thank you for the members who have met and contributed to this suggestion.  Look forward to suggestions of venues and date/time.

A regular SHC meeting point in the West, for retirees

I have been exploring the possibility of having other SHC regular gatherings outside the central area in Singapore.  Last week, I spoke with Vincent Khoo, who lives in Jurong East.  In general, since he is retired, and would also like to gather and coordinate SHC members together on a regular basis.

In general, I have some agreement and understanding on having a monthly gathering there at Jurong East, for those members who live in the West.  Key points are:

  • Place – Jurong East
  • Venue likely a food court.  This is being explored by Vincent. Food court Kopitiam, 2nd floor, IMM
  • Time – 10 am – 12nn or 2pm to 4pm, a weekday
  • Frequency – likely once a month
  • Date:  Fri 10 Feb 2012
  • Residents – those who are retired and live in the best.
  • Transport – MRT, Jurong East.
  • Food – As you would buy from the food court.
  • fees – there are no charges.
  • Topic – Vincent will lead.  But, participants can suggest topics.

Soon, I will announce the start of these gatherings.  Note:  The usual monthly gatherings for all members will still continue; although this one will be in the West for retired SHCians.

For your info, thoughts and comments.  If anyone has suggestions, and would like to lead in the East and North, please share your thoughts here.  This is to be a regular happening.  We will take it from here.

If you are living in the West, and would like to be part of this grouping, please register here.

Any SHCians from Northern Part of Singapore?

Dear members,

I would like to initiate this thread for those who are residing in the Northern region of Singapore, since members from both the Western & Eastern regions have created a separate thread for their respective group.   Special thanks to Ah Nee for calling ‘the Northerners’ out too… 

Members who are residing in Upper Thomson Road, Yio Chu Kang, Seletar, Sembawang, Yishun & Woodlands areas; you are welcomed to pen your thoughts or give any suggestions to hold a small gathering , to kick-start the beginning of a New Year 2010!

Wishing everyone Joy, Peace & Happiness as Another New Year rings in!emoticon

Cheers!

The Westerlies wind is blowing. January 30, 2010

The idea has been brought forth by Rosalind and Terence and some others. We had some territorial group formed before but it faded off into the horizon!

Before the Easterlies came up with some show, the Westerlies want to be the first to jump up the bandwagen. Those who are from the West may show your interest here. We would need to locate a place to meet or possibly a member’s home, whether for lunch or dinner? 

New members are encourage to come forward and we look forward to hear all your suggestions!
