  1. Time to register your coming to the July SHC monthly gathering. By registering, you let other members know that you are coming. Tell us who you like to meet, tell others about yourself, share your interest, and this meeting will be a good time to know new and old Silverhairs.

  2. I have not been to the new Hans Cafe at ChinaTown Point. But judging from feedback, the place is big and its concept is similar to the older Hans at Upper Pickering street.

    Some of you may have ideas or suggestions on what are some of the programs we can have for the remainder of 2016. For those who have something in mind, let’s meet at a long table at 7pm. We shall discuss for one hour. 7 – 8pm.

    Terence Seah

  3. Hi Terence, count me in.

  7. For this July monthly gathering, I need some help with the registration desk. The role is to mark attendance of participants, and also to give out the SHC cloth patch to members who register personally on this forum.

    The registration desk is a great place to get to know new and other members of the club. 2-3 persons, and we start at 5pm.

    Let me know if you can raise your right hand. Thank you.

    Terence Seah

  9. Hi SusanS and SamG,

    Thank you for raising your hand to do the registration desk. When members arrive, they will see you. This is a great way to know friends.

    Plse give those registered, and marked, a cloth SilverHairsClub patch, which can be sewned on a t-short or bag.

    Introduce members to one another.

    Have fun.

    Terence Seah

  10. I have two books to give away during the monthly gathering. Available to the first person who picks these two books up at the monthly gathering.

    1. Penang’s History by Wong Chun Wai & friends. This is a Malaysia’s STAR publication. I have not read it as I am no Penang boy, although I think someone will benefit from reading it.

    2. Pointers to Enlightenment by Vipula Wanigasekera. The author believes that truth has to be realized beyond the identifiction of the “false self” and no one can offer it to another, other than pointers and clues.

    Members are free to give away anything, although I dont think Hans will allow anyone to sell stuff.

    Terence Seah

  11. I am likely not going to be able to make it for this month’s monthly gathering at Hans Cafe on Tues 26 July, as I have a last minute overseas meeting.during this date.

    The gathering will still continue, and I shall be appointing a replacement EO next week.

    I apologise I shall miss seeing most of you.

    Terence Seah

  12. My travel schedule has again made it not possible for me to attend the monthly gathering.

    Sam Goh, who is a long time member, and who resides mainly in JB, will be the EO for this monthly. Plse welcome him.

    Thank you Sam for agreeing to be the EO. I am sure it will be fun to have you around.

  25. TQ Sam for bringing sparks and sunshine to the July gathering at Chinatown Point basement. I guess the gathering was hilarious and also totally disorganised.

    For participants, please give your feedback on venue convenience, food, prices, suitability as a venue for the monthly gathering. No right or wrong, or good or bad. If you have another venue suggestion, please share the place. If good or no other place, we may use this Hans Cafe again next round.

    Please share your pictures by ending 2-3 pictures, at the bottom of your comment.

    Nice to see members who are now 10 years older.

    Terence Seah

  26. Hi Terence,
    It was nice seeing old friends and meeting a few new ones.
    I do have feedback for you.
    The venue is too small and rather cramped. The tables were long and not great for mingling, especially for the newcomers.
    I met a rather shy lady, who was sitting all alone by herself with her name
    tag. As usual, I was a busybody and got her off her butt, (apologies to her) and brought her round to introduce her, but the response from the old timers was luke warm and could have been better.
    There were a few others sitting quietly by themselves. I wish more people were like me.
    It’s great catching up with each other but we should spend some time welcoming the new members and try to make them feel at home, don’t you think?
    D, if you are reading this, do drop me a line at my email address. I forgot to ask for your mobile number. Hope to see you at the next gathering.

  27. Hi Mary,

    When the last Hans Cafe at Upper Pickering closed, we have no new recommendations from members for an alternate venue. This Hans at ChinaTown Point was highly recommended; that’s why we picked this place.

    Your feedback is useful, esp the long table and the size of the venue. Unfortunately, we have not had other suggestions, fitting nearness to MRT, flexible seating, no requirement for min pax. I hope to hear of new venues.

    Getting new members and old members, I leave this to the imagination of the EO. You are right we have quiet members too. Our monthly gathering has always been based around the free and easy concept. Perhaps, other EOs have new action plans.

    I hope to hear other feedback from members.

    Terence Seah

  28. hmm, some members didnt register to come for this event. Give up, must be mobile phones done take nice pictures. Click on the pictures. They will grow big.

  29. Hi..Terence. I am quite puzzled by your statement.

    Would you rather have a person who registers promptly and unhesitantly and then fails to turn up (such as you) or a person who attends the event without registering (such as me)? Are you more interested in an impressive long list of names on the screen or a big crowd at the event?

    There are always unregistered members who happen to be near an event place and decide to pop in to say hello. Do you discourage that?

    Han’s café, like many of our meeting places, is open for business to the public. So long as the EO does not collect pre-payment, no reservation of seats and no booking of tickets, I don’t see why a person cannot walk in to buy him/herself a drink and mingle with friends.

    If it is necessary to keep a record of “attendance of meeting” for whatever purpose, I am sure we always have a person doing that. And we are thankful.


    • TQ for your comments. We are always pleased to see members new and old come and meet one another.

      I hope you will be the next EO of the Aug monthly gathering at Hans Cafe. Please go ahead, we shall wait for your post.

      Terence Seah

  30. Hi Terence, I note your apparent “letter of demand”. I am glad to oblige – and offer more.

    I declare the last Wednesday of every month to be our gathering (or meeting) day. Time is 5 pm onwards and place is the good old Han’s café at Chinatown Point Basement 2.

    No registration required. Anybody keen in collecting such statistics can do so on the event day. While it gives me immense pleasure to see people having fun, I don’t see why I should put in extra efforts to make any person come.

    We know the rules and I quote, “Strictly no discussion on politics, sex, race, religion, direct selling and MLM”. To enforce this, there may be volunteers going around to eavesdrop, and report on whether any group is speaking “taboo words”. Perhaps the question in everybody’s mind is, “WTF are we going to talk about?” I do not have the answer.

    Reminder – It is the last Wednesday of each and every month.
    31 Aug, 28 Sep, 26 Oct, 30 Nov and 28 Dec. 2016.
    Han’s Café @ Chinatown Point Basement 2. Start 5 pm.

    If you are in little India around the stipulated day and time, come don’t be shy. We are only three stations away via the North East line. If you are in Mumbai, India then don’t bother to fly back. There is always another month another Wednesday.

    Let us hear your alternative ideas and feedback, if any. We are desperate for EOs.


  31. Hi DanielC,

    Very nice of you to accept the role of EO for the Aug monthly gathering, and future ones too.

    Plse go ahead and let members know the details in a new Post. As EO, you can choose to accept registrations or otherwise. TQ.

    Terence Seah
