Covid-19 is a creative time for all of us.  Some of us have gone crazy, others keep forgetting we are at home.  Some of us have lost our jobs, some of us get $600 from the govt, others get only $100.  Lucky ones get to keep our jobs while many seniors are happy to stay at home.

This Sat, 6 Jun 2020 at 1pm, we have Frisna Tan and a team of jokers to entertain us, and help us forget Covid-19.  Frisna hold the Club’s longest tile as the Xiao Xiao girl.  She had promised to host an entertainment channel some 10 years ago.  This Sat shall be the 1st planned event.

Come log into SHC Zoom and be tickled from your sofa, your bed or your bathroom.  The group has made plans for practice this week.  I guess there will be many hiccups, but let’s all enjoy the jokes, the laughter together and the unplanned scenes.

TQ Frisna and team.  I am already laughing.

“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.

Let’s bring our grand children together. Let’s have a Talentime for them

Many of us have young grandchildren, and it is indeed tiring keeping them busy all day and night. We had a Zoom gathering this week, and often, we could hear children busy in the background. At one recent event, a young sweet girl popped up besides Charles Wee, curiously looking at cute seniors having a chat online.

It strikes me that it would nice if we organise a Talentime for our grand children. They can be singing, dancing, showing a magic trick or hobby.

I was thinking we keep the age to 10 years and below. Grand parents get to dress the kids up.  and maybe prepare some music in the background. We can work out the prizes.

The audience can do a vote at the end of the Talentime to determine the most entertaining show.

Likely date/time: Sat 11 April  1 pm to 3.30pm. LIVE on SHC Zoom.

A practice session will be organised this Sat 4 Apr from 1.30 pm to 3.00 pm. Simply join in at https://zoom.us/j/4178525736.  Password is available from co-hosts Howard Yong  and Catherine Soon or via whatsapp +65 94894360.

How about this idea? Like to help me? Contact me at 9489-4360.

Plse standby to register your name and grandchildren to participate. Recording is not allowd and recording is disabled in all SHC Zoom events.
