  1. Hi Steven

    I am agreeable to the ew arrangement including the charges.

    King Seng

  2. Steven

    I’m fine with the charges. I’m sure there is no objection from Annas if anyone wants to give more than $15 either.

  3. Hi Steven,

    I go along with the charges. Its fine with me. Thanks for organizing this healthy event.


  4. Steven,

    Can we for a “sampling” at Anna’s for the booking and menu selection. Don’t tell others how much we pay or they will kill us.

    I’ll be in Marcao so can’t join you on the 24.

    Hee- hee

  5. Hi Steven

    TOTALLY NOT FAIR as far as “A” is concerned. To honour the words of “A”, BOLDLY emblazon with the writing on the “wall”, should be pay as you wish (i.e. charity motto), n not otherwise.

    I will go on other day, and don’t mind to pay any amount, may be even over $15 (IS AN IRONY that is amount come about) , to insist a fixed amount by so called CHARITY is absolutely not in a good sense.


  6. Yes Steven,

    On principle, I totally agree with Ron Lai.

    The banner/motto they have out in the restaurant belie their so-called good intentions and faith in humankind.



    { Btw, doesn’t more people mean more contributions…no matter what each donation is. Where’s the logic.??? }

    I would like to withdraw from this lunch

    Sorry Steven, I know you worked very hard on this.

    Thank you……………….Jie

  7. Steven,


    Don’t reserve. Just go early at 11.30 am before the office lunch crowd.

    Relax. Let the late stragglers squat on the sidewalk. We are all old enough to be responsible for ourselves.

    Then you are free to pay as you like. But still try to agree as a group.

    A motto for a principle
    “Free is our right, not privilage”

    Don’t worry. I’ve been there, burned there. Tomorrow when the sun shines again, it shines brighter.

  8. Hi Steven

    I do believe they are an honest charity and you are a kind soul supporting them.
    The last time I ate there when they were in Peninsula Plaza, I thought the meal and ambient was worth at least $25 at todays price.

    I just had a meal in a posh restaurant and paid $90 for rubbish. The owner drives a Mercedese and have a very pleasant smile.

  9. Steven

    Sorry forgot to ask. So lunch is 11.30am or 1pm. We still meet at Chinatown Point Basement and what time now.

    Many thanks for your efforts.

    Caroline Gee

  10. Hi Steven,

    I agree with Ron and Jie’s comments.

    Maybe the restaurant have had bad experiences with people who go in a group. They enjoyed themselves so much that they forgot that are noisy, rowdy and eating too much. Other customers are deprived of a quiet and relaxing ambience.

    No worries, I’ll be there. What time please.


  11. WHY ($15)? Cos with inflation, cost is high, if everyone eats and leaves 10 cents behind, they’ll start to sigh, soon they’ll die with no time to say goodbye and so if you love food & support charity, it has still to be a “wa ai” and everythg else is nevermind……………

  12. Hi Catherine Chong,

    Ron Lai, Alice and Jie has withdraw from ANNA.

    And so you can replace one of them. Thanks for your support.

    The lunch is at 1.00 pm sharp.

  13. Hi Ron Lai, Alice and Jie ,

    I am indeed VERY SORRY it is BEYOND my control.

  28. Hi Dolly ,

    Thanks for your “walking’ bus nos directory. It would be useful for those who decide to travel by bus.

  29. Hi Dolly,

    …Thanks for your “walking” bus nos directory.

    To share, when I was working,I drove my Mitsu Lancer as a means of transport for work cum pleasure.

    However,before I almost “retired” I sold it off together with my condo as I realise Spore has world class 1st. transprt system and to down grade to HDB

    as the profit made from sale of condo together with savings and still waiting to smell my CPF can ensure myself of a “good” retirement time
    Now, I need not worry much abt the escalating price of petrol,
    maintenance and parking and accidents , traffic fines, problems of parking esp. in the CBD during peak hrs and points and charges.

    I can even reach my destination COOLED and RELAXED in our efficient MRT system , bus and taxi transpt.

    To share, Whenever, I visited my hometown in M’sia I often complain why the bus is so slow,sometimes waiting for the bus to fill up and then jalan.

  30. Hi Peng Peng, Janet, Liu and Amy Kor,

    Pls. reply by tomorrow, Sunday .

    Thanks for your kind understanding.

    I need more volunteers to help me to
    (i) plan various interesting games
    (ii) co-ordinate the games.

    Any Westerlies who wants to volunteer,
    ” Pls.raise your hands ” – Terence’s famous quote.

    Just drop you a line to say a big ‘Thank You’ in organizing such a healthy lunch yesterday. Your special recommendation of Mango & Orange Lassi are superb, and you’re indeed very attentive by ensuring that each one of us are well introduced.

    Not forgetting to add that a sip of the ‘Spinelli’s coffee with fellow SHCians after lunch were absolute quality time spent.

    Thumbs up for being a wonderful host!

    Thanks again.

  63. Hi Terence, to select the coloured photos of Annalakshmi Veg Buffet Event ( ZIP files) which I had just sent to you by email and attachment of Anna’s low res for attaching to your SHC Album.

    Goodnight and sweet dreams.

  64. Hi Karen Thio,Grace Wong, Susan Chan ,King Seng,Caroline Gee,
    Catherine Ho( BC = Black Cat-Lucky Omen ),
    Catherine Chong( BBC = Bare Back Cat – Sexy )
    Thank u to all for your notes of appreciation and thanks.

    And thanks BBC, it was v.good of you to come and you enjoyed the company of SHCians despite being late.
    However, at 3.30 pm after the veg.buffet as if not enough , some of us proceeded to Spinelli at China Square to have our cups of coffee and continue our quality time chit chatting.

    Suddenly, we realise that we had so much things to talk abt in common,it seemed endless! ” Are we in LOVE ? ” Ha! Ha!

  65. At #78, sorry to have left out Janet Heng’s and Oi Cheng’s name inadvertently.

    Btw, Susan Chan , the beautiful coloured photos of our ANNAs buffet gathering has already been emailed to Terence last night. I guess he is busy with work and will post it in his SHC album soon otherwise, can you “chase” after him for the photo link pls. OK? Thanks in advance.

  66. Hi Coffee Connoiseurs, others,

    i ) I had tried the TCC,Coffee Bean,Gloria Jeans but I still love the coffee at Starbucks Best. Psychological ? ? ?

    Any comments ?

    At Starbucks , the Venti sized Frappicino ice blended coffee with lots of whipped fresh cream and thick caramel – my favourite yummy coffee concotion.

    For those who had NOT sample the taste of Mango and Orange lasse yoghurt drink that we had been talking about , be free to visit ANNAlakshmi restaurant . I believe the chefs at Anna use fresh Indian mangoes while at other restaurants,they use “flavored” mango yoghurt. That’s explain the goodness and tasty drink in Anna’s yoghurt drink.

  67. Hi TerenceS,

    Many participants are enquiring and are anxious to see their photos to be posted in SHC Album re our AH NA NA affair.

    Pls. do ASAP. I had sent my low res photos of ANNA thru an attachment 2 weeks ago. Have you received it ?
    If NOT, pls.let me know and
    pls. be v. PATIENT it takes abt 4 to 6 mins to download all the photos in the meantime u can do multitasking with other windows.

  68. Hi Terence,

    THANK you so much.

    I am indeed VERY IMPRESS with your DHL service.I NEVER expected that the ANNA Buffet photos which I had sent to you just a minute ago can be put into the SHC album almost instantaneously.

    EXCELLENT! Keep it up! :>)

    Steven Chan

  69. Hi ANNAS Buffet Diners,

    Thanks once again for your kind support and donating so generously for a good cause.

    The beautiful colour pictures of ANNAS Buffet on 24th May 08 is posted in the SHC Album by Terence and can be viewed at

    It is indeed very HEARTENING to see all of you enjoying chit chatting among yourselves. It was a memorable day and as if not enough,some of us went over to Spinelli @ China Square to have another of round of coffee/ice blended tea and continue chit chatting until abt 4.30 pm before we decided to call it a day leaving our wonderful memories with us.

    Any comments abt the Northern Indian Vegetarian Buffet ?
    Pls. be FREE to speak your mind.

  70. Hi Susan Chan /others

    Remember you were asking me a few times when the posting of ANNA album will be up ?

    Finally,the moment has come you may view these photos. You look so young and photogenic with a sweet smile and voice.

    Are you sure you are 45 or above?
    Most important of all, you are “warmth” at heart and gets along fine with almost everybody.

    MUST apologise for missing your birthday which you all had celebrated with Terence and co at Scorebots.

    Did it turn out to be a “wild” Kahlua party? Ha! Ha! and I could sense that some of you will be walking around in circles after so many rounds of the boozzy drinks.

  71. Hi Steven Chan~Tai Kor!

    Thanks for your kind compliments…’re indeed very humourous and extremely meticulous in using your choice of words eh…

    You are right that we should always maintain our warmth, poise & confidence, to enhance genuine friendship among all SHCians & friends.

    Anyway, we had only a few rounds of Kahlua drinks and everyone was as sober as a Judge!

    Look forward to your next wise suggestion for another healthy lunch/dinner.


  72. Hi Susan Chan / Tim Liu ,

    Wah liao! Chan~Tai Kor! Umm Kam Tong. NO one has ever called me by that name.

    You r the No wonder your nickname is onlysue because you are UNIQUE!

    ….extremely meticulous in using your choice of words eh…
    I learn it the hard way from my working experience. Some teachers esp.the married ones are extremely sensitive. Sometimes meant something to be a joke can actually trigger a backlash. And so must be careful whom u r dealing with.

    …you’re indeed very humourous. NOT really,when I was working as a teacher,I was TOO SERIOUS. Even my students often told me to RELAX lah! and most of my colleagues had hardly have much time to talk with. Most of the time, we talk a little abt students’ behaviour ,respect and attitude towards teacher and follow by Mark,Mark,Mark….like siao. There seems no end to our marking except at the end of the yr.

    I learn to be more relaxed after my retirement and also be humourous when I first join SHC a yr. ago. I often “admire” Tim’s style of humourous writing and I play along with him in writing. I was gradually influenced by his humourous style of writing jokes. And then I learn to let go and be more humourous in my writing.

    And sometimes pai seh, pai seh ,I would search for my Oxford dictionary to find the new but seldom used words in everyday conversatn used by Tim.

    One in particular was ” nin com poop”, sounds like a foreign word.Sometimes Tim’s uses phrases or words that is
    “YAU HO TOR KUAT ,HO KARN LAN TON LOT HUI ” literally means in Cantonese ” had prickly bones that had to digest”.

    ….Next TIMELY suggestion will be a Happy Family SHC
    POT LUCKY Day at West Coast Park BBQ Park. Members are kindly invited to bring along their families to join us.

    The once SORE EYED metal boardings along the perimeter of the beach has FINALLY been taken off. In place,you see luxury cruise boats and big ships and you feel so invigorating fanned by the cool windy sea breezes.
    You are also being surrounded by luxuriant greenery of “Bird Ferns Paradise” garden in the vicinity.
