  1. Hello Doreen, please count me in. Seng Kim

    In reply to Seng Kim: Most welcome and thank you for your support

    You are on the list. Could you please give your phone no. for updating purposes


  2. Hi,
    We are disappointed that the 18th Oct tour was not organised properly. Earlier instruction was given that there is no breakfast break and we must take our own breakfast before boarding on the bus. During coffee break one of the member Steven Chan was nearly abandoned at Batu Pahat by the driver because he returned to the vehicle last as no instruction was given as to what time he is supposed to be back. At the organic farm only the church group was told about the farm tour, the other SHC group was left to walk at the supermarket on their own and not invited for the farm tour. This is the feedback and hope organiser can do better next time to look after SHC members welfare. Thank you

  3. Hi Doreen ,
    I am writing the part which Bok has left out. No instruction on what time we should be back to our MPV. As such I took my time to shop for my basic necessities. However as the place was very crowded with both tourists and locals as well there
    was a very LONG QUEUE for payment . As soon as I paid and about to enter the MPV with my items Doreen reprimanded me for being late and the last person to leave the shop.
    However. , after 5 to 8 mins later another couple was seen hurrying back to theit MPV . Doreen saw them but did not reprimand them just ask them to hurry up . They were even much LATER than me why NO REPRIMAND. ? Doreen you are obviously practicing DOUBLE STANDARDS and this is UNFAIR TREATMENT towards me .
    Why are they given SPECIAL type of preferential treatment. ?
    As our tour representative you must look into our welfare and safety concerns. When Bok told me that the driver almost drove off without me . What does that imply to you ?
    That because you LOST YOUR PATIENCE you have the guts to ask the driver to drive off leaving me alone stranded at Kulai ? ? ?

    Doreen , is this the way you treat your customers ? If NOT for Bob and Stella who continously told the old and grumpy driver to wait a little while for me to return he would have drIven off because you authorise him to do so.
    Doreen , you proudly name your travel agency as KINDLY TRAVEL but ask yourself HONESTLY what you have DELIBERATELY done to Steven and left him almost alone and almost STRANDED at Kulai an act of kindness ?

    We Shc community are very discerning people and we are able to see tthrough you that as an event organiser you DON’ have the interest of SHC ians at heart and you care more for profit and not into customer service satisfaction . Sorry to say that.
    I wrote all these because I want to speak my mind and also to offer constructive criticisma so that the November tour will be better .

    Also I see that you did NOT REBUT BOK ”s comment at all which means that Bok is speaking the truth and NOT running you down in any way.
    I hope you will learn to improve more on customer satisfaction which is the most important factor to consider besides making profits from them .

  4. Hi Doreen ,
    U hv my support ! …. I’m ON .
    Is never easy to please every1 … taking the efforts to organise , oredi shd be appreciated.
    We, thank u .

    Don’t be disheartened ya !

  5. First of all we must thank Doreen for organising the trip. We know it is not easy, looking after 70 people, young and old.

    When we paid the amount to join, we did not know what would and could happen. Now that it has happened, we want to feedback for the sake of future participants.

    No we are not trouble makers. Disappointed merry makers perhaps.

    Don’t forget we are senior citizens and naturally may display some mental and physical shortcomings. As a tour leader, please be mindful of this natural development. Clear instructions ought to be given, and as time is of the essence, regrouping time must be constantly repeated and reminded.

    Thank you and all the best in your next event.


  6. Hi DoreenC,

    I have received many feedback on your organising of travel activities for members. 95% are good, reflecting your professionalism in travel. On this note, thank you.

    Although you are in the travel business I am fine with it as I see more benefits to SilverHairsClub and its members. As a SilverHairsClub member, I am therefore glad to support your events. In fact, I have been looking for someone with your type of committment and travel knowledge to support one of SHC most loved activites. I see you fit this role well.

    Please continue your good work.
