    1. Tq to member’s recommendation. The June monthly gathering shall be held at Pasir Ris Central Hawker Centre, 5 mins walk from Pasir Ris MRT.

      The date and time have not been decided yet. As this venue is not located in central Singapore, the date will likely be a weekend on a pleasant morning or afternoon.

          1. Hi LillianC and DavidO, thank you very much for the wonderful offer to provide members with coffee/tea or soft drink at this month’s monthly gathering.

            On behalf of the club, TQ again.

            Terence Seah

    3. A SHC member who lives nearby commented that the place has no aircon and is very hot. Not sure if it is true.

    4. Hi guys
      I’ve been to this food court a few times…and have some suggestions:
      The food court is on two levels and I suggest you go to the second level where there are more “atas” stalls…a bit pricier, but with many stalls run by young aspiring hawkers. I particularly recommend Wild Olives where you can get delectable chicken and pork grilled or Italian pasta sets with soup etc for less than $10.00! There’s burgers, Korean, Thai and more.
      The second level has a better layout and not subject to heat from the cooking…it’s more breezy, in fact, the surrounding view of the pond area is quite scenic.
      I’m sure the EOs have surveyed the food court and can agree to my points.
      A weekday early lunch or dinner is better to avoid the crowd on weekends.

    5. After going through the pros n cons feedback, I decided to go down to have a 2nd study of the place.

      The main drawback is no aircon which I am fully aware. I decided to go for a change from the past Aircon foodcourt to non Aircon hawker centre. They are not the same as those popular old traditional hawker centre like Maxwell Rd, Old Airport Rd, Whampoa, Alexandra, Tiong Bahru food centre, etc…, but a hawker centre with new concept located in resorts like retreat ambience, but with no hotels, golf, etc, around…. instead surrounded by neighbourhood HDB flat.

      The hawker centre is semi-circled and is facing directly the Pasir Ris Town Park of about more then 30 times of Football field. In the center of the park is a very huge fishing pond of about 6 to 8 times of football field, with a main fishing pond and is partitioned by many smaller ponds for other type of fishing activities.

      The hawker table and chair seat is widely spread with high ceiling and attached with gigantic fans of about 4 to 5 meters blades in diameter. The ceiling of the hawker roof is about 6 to 7 meters high with wide ventilation facing the Pasir Ris Town Park, with immediate children play ground, walking & jogging track and is surrounded by trees all over the park.

      You don’t feel the noise pollution and is occasionally quite breezy. Again it depend on the weather on the day of meeting itself.

      The hawker centre comprises of level 1 and level 2. Level 1 sell mostly traditional neighbourhood hawker foods at neighbourhood hawker price, Kopi O/ Teh O @ $.070. Kopi/Teh (with milk) @ $0.80. Other hawker foods started from $2.50 onwards.

      Level 2, food are of fine quality (mostly western, Korean, Thai , etc) priced a bit higher but is still within hawker pricing. The whole hawker are managed by NTUC FOODFARE.

      Of course the popular stalls often with long queue at times very well suggested by our SHC Kenneth Tan and Yoong Chin is Wild Olives plus others like reasonably patronised are Prawnaholic, SoulShiok, etc..

      Finally I would suggest we have our meeting on the ground floor just outside Tray Return counter with a lot of back rest chair seats, widely apart with beautiful panoramic view and airy whereby the foods and drinks are easily accessible and of reasonably quality and cheap.

      As for those who prefer better refined food can ordered from level 2 and bring down with few easily accessible lifts within reach.

      For those with NTUC Card or PIONEER Card, please bring it along. You will enjoy discount from certain stalls on the food you ordered.

      After meeting at 5pm, those health conscious SHC Members are encouraged to go for a healthy walking or jogging around the park which is big enough to burn your required calories.

      Level 3 & level 4 of the hawker centre is a reasonable size HDB carpark. Joining the hawker centre is the Pasir Ris Sport Hub for various sport activities. Diagonally opposites is a Pasir Ris Central MRT Station.

      Hope this meeting place is acceptable to our SHC members for a compromise of healthier and graceful choice of happy lifestyle with some exercise .

      Remember to wear casual and put on the right shoes for your exercise especially walking or jogging after meeting hor…

        1. After our SHC meeting ended at 5pm, there is a huge park right in front of you for early evening walk and other activities. So get ready…….

    9. THANK YOU, Lilian and Dolly, for a wonderful get-together. The brief drizzle was a welcome relief to an otherwise scorching afternoon. The place is spacious. We were able to mingle and snap pictures freely.
      Last but not least, thank you David for the Kopi O.

      Cheers

    10. Hi Lillian,
      Congrats for a great success and enjoyable gathering today. It”s your first time organising this meeting with your husband David’s great support and your graciousness, and with veteran co-EO Dolly to boost your confidence, everybody was happy mingling around, happy to see some old friends whom we have not met for a while. It”s good to re-connect, thanks for creating this opportunity.

    11. Looking at the overwhelming turnout at Pasir Ris Hawker Centre yesterday, it was indeed a great success for Lilian as an EO and Susan CH Tan as an co EO. If not for the hiccup occurred during these few days, surely the crowd will keep coming, the number of attendees will hit record high. Lilian and Susan, what an experience, thank you for your efforts, a job well done!

      3 cheers to everyone who make this fun and enjoyable gathering possible.. making new friends and meeting the old members.

    12. Hi LillianC,

      Well done for taking the initiative to bring everybody together, to this Jun monthly gathering. And to David for the great gesture to keep the weather cool.

      From the comments, I read many members, guys and gals, have come together to make this event fun and meaningful.

      Members are always free to organise the monthly gathering. Feel free to speak with any of the senior SHC members. At least once in the duration of your membership with SilverHairsClub.

      Tq LillianC and team.

      Terence Seah

      1. Members don’t be shy or afraid you cannot pull through. SHC has a culture of gotong royong, you know. Just shout out and you will not be short of help. More so on the day of the meeting itself – plenty of volunteers around.

        When I first organised the CNY Lohei as an individual, I did not know anybody but then one by one came out to offer their help. That’s the first time I got to know Daniel Chan, Christina Chan and Peri, the 3 pillars of support who gave their all which made the event a great success. We have been very good friends since then, through thick and thin.

        1. Dear Susan

          You are always there for people who need your help. And I am sure there are many who would help you when you need them. And we know you put in your heart and soul in everything you do so we are very lucky to have you around us.
          Till we meet the next time, stay healthy and happy!
          Cheers
          Carly

      2. Hi Terence Seah,
        Thanks for your encouragement & giving me an opportunity to learn & gain the experience in this June SHC mthly gathering.

      3 Cheers …..

      1. My dear livewire Lydia.
        Thanks for helping me in bringing full of sparkle to this June SHC gathering.

        The video with vegetable distribution clearly show the cheer you had created to the surrounding atmosphere. Even the hawkers were amused by our SHC activities.

        It is also the effort of Thomas Loh who sponsor the vegetables and the camera man Patrick Ooi, Richard Wong, Daniel Chan and also yourself, Lydia Poh.

        The success in this June gathering also come from Susan CH Tan, Lee Ah Nee and Dolly Lim helping in various administration works.

        Finally a big thank you to the overall success also goes to those SHC members that turn up to support this June gathering in making this event meaningful.

    15. CONGRATULATIONS Lilian & Dolly! Both of you are darlings to people who have met you and know you well. And all the lucky ones who got to attend this gathering.
      Have a great week ahead!
      Cheers
      Carly

    16. Dear All,
      Thank you for the support given during this monthly gathering – but I am not really a good Co-EO as I was busy with catch-up with old friends and chatting more with those KY tour members instead at the later part of the gathering. I know la.. anti-social lor… Nevertheless, thanks for the understanding given too.

      In my opinion, Lilian is a great and super as a duty of EO… hip hip hurray…another potential EOs listed for SHC events… Others like SusanCH and ANee also had given great support faithfully staying by their side to mark attendances and issuing out the free drink coupons. Thanks to the kind generosity of David Ong too… Also not forgetting others like Lydia Poh, Pat Oei, Richard Wong for photo taking too.. Getting old, so if I had unintentionally left out some VIP names, do forgive ya…

      Though we had a handful of members came in not registered but I supposed that this could be due to the technical issues for this monthly gathering post thus not able to do so earlier. Bottomline, we had a great turnout and bonding.

      Till the next gathering… Cheers… Dolly
