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

  • John Howe
  • Eve
  • Anne Choi – EO for Table 2

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

Sharing/Giving @ Zoom

https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1LMMhQRkzOLvPAEDQT3j5KwFutP50kcA2?usp=sharing

Since there is no taker here, I will be giving them away thru FB now.  I will be deleting this post by April 23 2020 by 5pm.  Thank you

Dear Members,
I have numerous ‘white elephants’ which is my trash now but someone’s treasures to be shared here. But I would like to share these giveaways during the Zoom session. Pictures will be added in later

However, I would prefer these to be given away to those members that I can see them via Zoom even though I might not have meet you in person before. If any members see anything you like here, you may want to consider to meet me in Zoom. I have yet to plan a date for this. But my preferred timing will be after 7pm weekdays. I will definitely choose a day whereby most members can meet me lor.. These giveaways will be mailed out once you are selected, however, you will need to pay for postage and other expenses incurred. Rest assured there will be no overcharged as I gave away very often thru my FB page. But for this time, I decided to give a try at SHC instead

Till then… Cheers… Dolly

SHC Aquarium fish hobby

Feel young, feel refreshing, feel good

I guess some of us do not have the time to keep aquarium fishes when we were younger. Maybe because we are busy working or we have not develop the interest.

Today, some of us have the time. We may have grand children to entertain. We may start with a bowl, buy some guppies or some goldfishes. Only to see the lively fishies swimming around the new acquarium and bringjng a whole new world infront of us. A great way to enjoy ageing.

Then, we realise we have to get fish food, what to do when they swim upside down, refuse to talk with us, or refuse to make love and create babies. Sometimes, they grow too big and what do we do with them?

For some of us, we not happy with just guppies. We want to see sword fishes, fighting Siam fishes, Koi’s and $500 Red heads.

We adventure into JB to look for exotic aquarium fishes, find cheaper feed, pumps and filters. And we find friends to go with.

I would like to start a SHC Aquarium fish hobby group for members who have at least one fish in their homes or who have kept an aquarium before, and like to revive this hobby.

This hobby will start as a WhatsApp group for numbers to communicate. Strictly no URLs, no videos, audios, and copy and paste. ONE fish or acquarium accessory picture a day is allowed.

Plse WhatsApp text 9489- 4360 to participate. Strictly SHC members only. Registration closes 25 Oct 019 and participation starts 26 Oct 2019.

* SilverhairsClub will help develop hobbies for members from time to time. Do let your group leader GL know or any senior SHC member know. They will help you get registered too.

Introduction to the World of Acrylic Painting

Hi everyone,
Let me first introduce my humble self – Adeline Yeo – have never written to silver hairs club besides attending a few get together. I am wondering how many of us have always wished to give personalized yet relatively affordable gifts to people whom we get in touch with. Well let me introduce you to the world of acrylic painting, which both young and old, with or without artistic ability can learn easily.

When I first picked up acrylic painting 15 years ago, I had no idea that it would not only bring much joy, creativity, freedom of expression, more friends and best of all extra monetary gains. Acrylic can be painted on most surfaces such as: fabric, paper, cards, fiberboard, wood, plastic and even stones. Thus I hope to share this skill and interest with others who are equally passionate about learning crafts.

The internet, schools and books expose you to a world of both knowledge and confusion about acrylic. Here I list just some of the few subjects:
• Different objects: sceneries, birds, flowers, still life, portraits, landscapes, etc
• Different family of colors within the colors, burnt sienna, raw umber, etc
• Different types of mediums: Retarders, glaze, etc
• Different types of brushes: flat tipped, round, ferrule, liners etc
• Different types of surfaces: Paper, plastic, wood, etc

Internet Links like this: https://youtu.be/AWQ1S1YwkI0

Schools that teach basic acrylic painting: http://pabha.com/ArtClass/Page6.htm
http://www.nafa.edu.sg/courses/part-time/short-courses

Books: Acrylic Painting for Dummies, Acrylic Painting with Passion
The list above is not exhaustive as you can always google or even borrow books from the library. As I was fortunate in the sense that I blindly followed what was taught because I was attracted to the final product that my colleague introduced. So questions like, what should I paint, what kind of brushes should I use, How do I start? These did not hinder my passion. It was much later that I learnt from Arts of Crafts (a school at Orchard Road) and Spotlight that I further increased my interest, but I should add I am still in the process of fine tuning

So without much further ado, let me show you some of my completed artworks, which were ordinary looking pieces of wood and stones which I had them painted as decorative items, given as personalized gifts and some that helped me make some extra income.

I hope this helped in your decision in taking up a hobby that is both therapeutic, relatively cheap and an enjoyment with your kids and a favorite past time.
Regards:
Adeline Yeo

Mahjong anyone?

Hi all,
Mahjong helps to exercise the mind, like Sudoku, Scrabble, Chess etc.
I am not a good or regular mahjong player.
My aim is to have a non gambling game, that is, chips will be used. The idea is to learn to build on the doubles, not just to game small. To exercise the mind and also to socialise.
I would like to start with a small group of 4.
You may be a beginner, a regular or someone who has not played the game before.
I have a mahjong set and table at my place, which is in Pasir Ris.
I’m willing to teach the game if you are a beginner.
If there are people who wish to add some excitement to the game and not use chips only, I’m not averse to it but I play very small.
Do let me know your preference and I can have a separate group for that.
Just email me at meiliix@gmail.com .
Cheers

  • Moving from DayCare to SHC Orchids

    shc-logo  orchid2  orchid1

    If there is anything some of us are good at, it has to be dreaming.  Dreaming is a great activity.  First, we dream about Day Care.  For some of us, we have been with SilverHairsClub for 10 years.  Now, we think about what we will do when we get older, and less mobile.  We conceptualise a few ideas.

    Next, we move on, and we conceptualise “SHC Orchids”.  A nice pretty word, less hostile and more welcoming than Day Care.  Essentially, the same activities as what we are doing now, but with more focused activities, suitable for SHC members who have difficulties with mobilty.  But, still working on the same platform to allow us to meet new friends and catch up with old friends.

    Maybe SHC Orchids will expand to more Singaporean seniors.  Maybe arts and crafts, hobbies, indoor activities.  I dont know.  But, we will keep developing.

    I like to encourage members who have arts and craft skills to come forward.  You can teach, conduct short courses to interested members, and we can expand your skills and training as part of SHC Orchids programmes.  You can charge a fee for your training, nobody would expect you to do so for free.

    There are a number of you with arts and crafts skills.  Do let me know if you are interested to work along such a plan.  I am sure a number of us would be interested to hear from you.

    Use Tennis balls to relieve stress and tension

    Hi All

    People who saw tennis balls on my bed are often puzzled and asked why?

    I accidently discovered this trick and it had helped me and so would like to share this simple tricks with you folks who might be interested. It cost nothing – only the tennis ball and the weight of your body will do the trick. It is relaxing and it’s easy to do.

    Get hold of any tennis ball/s – it doesn’t have to be new. Used and discarded ones will do as long as it is still in one piece and firm. You can start with one or 2. I use two.

    For the shoulders :
    – Lie on your back on your bed (your mattress should be firm and not too soft). Place tennis ball/s between your shoulder blades and relax your arms to the sides. Relax and you will immediately feel the relieve of tension on your shoulder. You can even fall asleep in that position.

    – Wiggle a little and you will feel the massaging effects.
    – Raise both arms straight in front of you and draw circles in the air (you will hear crackling sound. Where the sound comes from?…. who care?…. as long as you feel shiok).

    You can use the same method for the lower part of your back, or lie on your side and place 1 ball in the hollow of your hip (between the hip bone and the thigh). This will relieve the “sng” feeling.

    For the neck :
    – In the lie back position, place 1 tennis ball on the spot at the back of your neck where you feel tension….. because the back of your neck is not as broad, you will need to hold it in place with your hand or place the ball in your palm.

    For the leg :
    – In standing position, place tennis ball under the arch of your right foot. Try rolling the ball in small circles while still standing, weight on the left foot. Not so easy to do but will help with blood circulation of the legs. Repeat with the left foot.

    Try it. Hope it help. If you tried – share your feedback so others and I can learn from it.

    :)

    Pickleball – Let’s Play This Sport Together

    My name is Eric Leow, a new member to this Club.

    I am playing pickleball for the last year and there are players who are playing this for the last 20 odd years. Many players across all skill-level have claimed that it would be “very hard” to stop playing the game, with some saying that they are “very determined” to continue playing.

    Briefly pickleball is a hybrid of Badminton, Tennis and Table-tennis, a three in one game, played with a wooden, graphic, or composite paddles and a perforated plastic ball. It can be played on a normal Badminton court or on any hard surface. The net is lowered to 3 ft high.

    If you find badminton, tennis or squash too strenuous for you, then pickleball is an excellent introductory game. It is very easy to learn and is quickly played and enjoyed by everyone, men, women, children and benefiting people at all ages. It is a low cost game. Badminton courts are easily available in our CC or sports hall. All you need is to buy the paddles and balls.

    From my personal experience, I found that most pickleball clubs do not want to take in new players who have not play this game before.

    I know the organizer of a pickleball club, and I think I should be able to convince him to recruit new players. Subject to SHCians expression of interest, I am considering to introduce pickleball and EO this sports here.

    If this is on, it would be on every Tues and Thurs 9.30am to 12.30pm. However, if the CC required the use the hall for activities then that session will be cancelled.

    You just need to get your own paddle, and contribute towards the purchase of balls. Not to worry about the amount, it is very affordable. It is about $3-$4 per month.

    The place is in the vicinity of Hougang.

    Venue venue and still venue – Where to conduct classes

    Hi All,
    While we are aware that there are lots of talented members willing to come forward to conduct classes charging a minimal cost for materials and some extra.  It is always a great challenge as to where they can find a venue to host these classes.

    This morning, while having breakfast with Karen – she was showing me those nail arts that she had done on her nails.  Wow, is really beautiful and she is willing to teach but again venue is another setback.

    I always wanted to try putting a false eyelashes but yet to master this skill and always hope that someone will be able to guide me along.. todate, had been unsuccessfully discard at least 10 pairs of falsies due to no proper guidance given.

    Of cos, some of you will definitely tell me, aiyah, go to youtube and watch video, sure ai sai 1.. well at least, I know that this does not worked out for me…

    Having said all these, are any members out there able help to provide any info for venue (FOC) or cost at minimal charge – we want to hear from all of you….

    Cheers… Dolly
