  1. Sorry Folks

    The website is mis-behaving again. I’ve spent 3 hours editing my post, even tried re-writing a new post – but nothing comes out here or in the old post. Terence is checking the problem. Once he get it sorted out, I follow-up the editing. Meanwhile, here’s the excerpt of my post.

    Here are 3 Options short-listed from a total of 7 quotations received todate. Take a look then cast your vote. The EO Team reserves the right to final decision.

    Thereafter, we will do the room allocation. You can then let me know who you want to room with.

  2. Hi Dan,

    Can elaborate more about the cruise …. is it the ‘gambling ship’ singaporean used to go?

  3. Lily, YK, Dolly & Huat Huat Huat,

    Option A – a relax free & easy holiday.
    Option B – same like going for my office Retreat, can be very FUN leh……
    Option C – more like a day cruise on board, but what are we doing on board, spending time at the casino? hmmmmmm… I don’t prefer.

    My choice, I take Option A. :)

    Ah Nee

  4. Hi Lily, Dan,

    I think that we may be spending a lot of time on checking in and checking out, if we take the cruise option. Why you give us headache to choice. I will go with the vote, altho I prefer option 1.

    Terence Seah

  5. Hi Terence,

    It was from an email from another member requesting my email address and NOT from the SHC forum ?

    Since you too have no such record, i guess it could be someone who has not registered as a SHC member.

    Thanks for yr comment.

  6. HiLo….I am on wait list so high chance of me not being able to join in for the getaway. So I shouldnt be giving my feedback. But then long time no writing anything on the forum. So pls let me kay po kay po say something…:-))

    Full body massage….uh um…really really relaxing and that’s what getaways are abot.
    BBQ dinner at pool side….eat, swim and be merry…this is wonderful (guess the BBQing will be done by hotel staff :-)).
    Team building games…if the games coordinator is experienced and effective, there will definitely be lots of laughter n fun.
    Leisure World ship…I enjoy gambling in MR as my gambling “capital” is very small. So what do I do on the tiny ship once my S$50 is eaten up by the jackpots??…that wld be stressful…:-)))

  7. Hi Lily, Dolly & YK,

    We take Option 1 if we are lucky to fill the up-coming vacancies.

    Thanks.

    Bessie

  8. Dear Lily

    Pls delete my hubby and myself from the wait list.Will miss this event as we will be travelling.Thanks, JanetH.

  9. Hi There

    Ah Nee & Terence pretty much sum up Option C :
    – too much hassle checking in and checking out
    – not much to do on cruise ship if you do not like gambling
    – no cabin allocated so can be tiring with no room to rest or freshen up.

    The name list have been updated with your votes. The rest of you kindly post your choice by Wed 30 Sep, 6pm. No vote means you are ok with whatever others have chosen. We can then finalise the package and I will make the reservation and 50% downpayment to secure the booking.

  10. Hi Lily,

    I will just follow our Great Leader, Option A.
    Only 1 nite, so don’t have to think so much.

    Why is the lettering on this post all RED?

    Can you let us know when is payment due? Must start saving now.

    Cheers

  11. Haha Charles

    I have absolutely no idea why the comments are in red. It’s all in blue now…. better? Will update your vote together with others. Otherwise, the post will again ‘kee siow’ if I update too much at one go.

  12. For those who are seeing RED, apology. Yew Kwong and myself were trying to figure out why. We could not find the cause until now. Think the cause is a little red space in the text of the Post. Should be ok for now. Let’s move on.

  13. Hi Lily,

    I am fine with either Option A or C. Option B does not appeal to me.

    I hope i can get into the “confirmed to go” list.

    Regards, Lydia.

  14. Good morning Lily…jus checking in on the post to see if any updates…in fact almost daily …:-))) As long a there is itsy bitsy teeny weeny chance of going, I mus follow up on this post…:-))))

  15. Hi Everyone

    Kinda busy – will update post with banking details asap. Payment will probably start this weekend.

    We are going for Option A since most of you prefer that.
    Also, would like to extend pax limit subject to the consent of my co-EOs.

    Will advise in due to course.
    Thanks.

  16. Hi Lily,

    Please be advised that I have decided to withdraw the Batam trip, due to unforseen circumstances.

    Regards
    Lin

  17. Hi Lily,

    I am next on the waiting list. Why is my name not upgraded to the Confirmed Going list? I know you did ask me in your previous post whether 1 or 2 to go but but when I get to see this comment, you have already given the seat to Lilian Teo. So I was thinking since my name was first on the waiting list, I have better choice than the rest.

    I would appreciate if you can put my name on the #40. I am sure James will also have a choice coming nearer to the date.

    Thank you
    Susan Tan

  18. Hi Lily

    Sorry, I m unable to join u and the rest of the members
    Have fun and take care

    Cheers
    Dennis
