  1. Dolly & Lily….

    My colleague, Rishan is so excited about our Arabian Nite. She has just signed up as a member and will pay $$$ by tomorrow.

    Cheers! Ah Nee

  2. Hi Dolly

    James Tan & wife, Koh Aye Leng paid me cash last night.
    Post updated liao.

  3. #161 Terence,

    I can drink the very most half a glass of red wine so I won’t join your table. I will bring a ‘tum pwee’ for you in case anyone in your table drink too much and have an urge to puke.
    The ‘tum pwee’ will be placed under your table ala kopi tiam of the 60’s style…hehehe


  4. Hi Dolly,

    Thanks for the apporval. My whisky table is now 2 persons (including me). I just bought a bottle, a new brand at duty free yesterday. Hi guys and gals, would you like to join my table?

    Terence Seah

  5. Hey Buddy
    Update done.

    Wow, Grace Tay is coming huh? Long time no see liao. Still slim and graceful I’m sure.

  6. Terence,
    Can la, you can form a table for whisky drinkers lor but hor, make sure all of you are sober enough for games hor..

    Lily, pls help to update payment for Eliza Hee and Grace Tay

    Cheers.. Dolly

  7. Usually, I do not like to set an example of gathering members I know well on one table, especially for an event like the Arabian night. The EOs might just kill me.

    But, then if I have no drinking partners on my table, I may have to drown myself with one or two bottles of whisky. I might also fall down while bringing my bottle around. Am also not a wine guy, nor would I like to mix beer with whisky.

    I like to form a table for strictly whisky drinkers. Can? Guys and Gals are invited. No non-drinkers. If you can drink at least one bottle of whisky, shared by 10 people, wah, I would luv to have you at one table. We can be noisy and we can have fun too. Dont be shy?

    EOs, can?

    Terence Seah

  8. Hi Dolly and Lily

    Susan Tan has transferred $45 (ref: 5429) to Dolly’s account today.

    Kindly ack receipt.

    Thanks & Cheersssssssss

  9. Hi Lilian #155

    Noted your comments. No worries.

    There are now two spare seats on my table for any two who wish to join us. Just raise your hands if interested ~


  10. Hi Gabriella #139,

    Noted your table not able to take in Nina Choo.
    Hope you dont mind that Anna Seet and myself will pull out from your table arrangement. My apology if it does cause you any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

    TQ & Cheers,

  11. No worries Laura.
    Those who haven’t paid have been deregistered (please see this post). Should your circumstances changed and you wish to join again, just make payment and we will include you again.

    Dear Robert Ong
    Thanks for your payment. You are No.79 in the paid up list.

  12. Dear Dolly, Lily and organizing team,

    Sorry I have to withdraw from this event due to unforeseen circumstance.

    If I had caused any inconveniences, please accept my apologies.

    Have a fantastic time at the event…

  13. Hi Karen – Payment from Sally, Rose & Billy updated. Thanks.

    Hi Janie – Thanks for the encouraging words all the way from overseas.

    Dear All
    GOOD NEWS!!! Molly Chua, our PIC for F&B was able to convince SGCC to waive the minimum 100 pax condition. Also, THERE WILL NOT BE ANY CORKAGAE CHARGE – so, feel free to bring your own bottles.

    As of today, we have 78 paid ups. Since we do not need to meet the 100 pax headcount, registration is now closed. For those who still want to join this event, KINDLY MAKE PAYMENT. NO MORE REGISTRATION WITHOUT PAYMENT.

    Thank you all who supported us this far. Those who can’t make it to this Arabian Nite – not to worry, we will see you at other events.

  14. Dear everyone,

    Looking at the programme, this will be a fun filled night for members to gather. The committee has worked hard and plan with consideration for dancers, non dancers, drinkers (brink your own or order), talented personnel n the list goes on….we want everybody to meet and have a wonderful night.

    Dressing to the theme adds to the fun, it’s definitely ok if you decide to look elegant and handsome in your own ways. You can mingle with any table and catch up with those that not met for a while. Gathering of this scale can come by maybe once a year. Come for the food, dance, play games, amusement and laughter, etc….

    So please consider or reconsider. We just wish to this will be one more memorable night for us. Shall see you on 28 July 2012!

    Best regards,

  15. EO

    Rose White asked me to adv that she hv just TT $90 for Herself and Billy Loy. Pls update . Thanks


  16. Dear EO & EOS

    Need to withdraw from this event :-(((
    I fully aware that All EO & EOS & committee members are working very hard for this event.

    If I do cause any inconveniences, kindly accept my apology….thousand apologies.

    To all who are attending : have a BELLYWOOD Night…

    Those who can’t make it to this Arabian Nite – Jeremy, Irene, Patrick and others….. not to worry. There will be other D&D to come. It’s a SHC tradition to have a D&D every year.

  30. Hi Dolly

    Pl include Catherine Lee, shc member for the event.

    Thanks & regards,

  31. Hi all.

    Almost 70% pay up. Good news . My appeal . The rest 30% pls. pay up asap to make this event a success. The EOs and others committee members have sacrificed a lot of time and effort on the theme. So pls. do not dissapoint them. time is running short!

  32. Hi Veronique ,

    You are being too humble. After 2 yrs attending belly dancing lessons , I am sure you can master the moves with grace. We all look 4 ward to your performance on stage just like the movie 881.

  34. Hamidah Sayang! #114

    How I wish I could be a talented dancer like you who not only can dance, you can teach and also choreograph. Thanks for your encouragement. I will try, dear!

    Hi Steven, #115

    Looks like you are very creative with my name hor! You evolved Veronique to veroni-Q and now is veroniqueen? Am so glad to see you gradually climbing back to your usual self- always witty and happy.
    As for belly dancing, I’ve temporarily put on hold because am currently pursuing other types of dances. With your strong encouragement and persistence, how to turn u down leh? Since I’m not good in performing, I’ll try to show those who are interested to know what is belly dancing some simple basic techniques if you guys don’t mind to follow this mediocre instructress?

    Hello Lily, #127

    Since I’ve already paid up and can’t siam , so have to reluctantly walk up to the stage lor……. Thanks for your encouragement too.
    Will liaise with you for arrangement and time slot. Ok?

    Please include Susan Tan for the event. She is a shc member.Can she pay now or to wait for verification of membership first?

    Thank you.


  37. Hi Lily, Molly and the committee,

    We are sorry, both Peggy and myself (Jeremy) will not be able to join all of you, as we have to be attend a wedding function.

    Hope all of you have a great time.

  38. Yes Steven Chan & Hamidah
    I fully agree with you that Veronique should show us some belly dance moves – be it ‘camel’ or ‘hip drop’.

    Haha Norlinda
    Shiok to read your telling off the chicken feet not to be chicken or go after chicks…hehe. With that chicken feet around, you gals will have a safe trip. Enjoy.

    Hi Barbara
    At SHC D&D, you won’t have time to be wall flower lah. You’ll be too busy laughing.

    Where are the guys hah?
    So far, the ratio of woman to man is 2:1. Any more men coming bo? Tian Soo, where are you? Ivan – so bad you can’t come. Can’t you reschedule your biz trip? Edwin & Philip? Charles Chua & Wee, Conrad, Douglas, Alan, Lawrence – don’t just go cycling lah. Come and relax a bit leh. Apart from Douglas, SGCC is so near your place lor.

  39. Thanks Lily.

    Am so glad not being ‘condemn to the harlem’ by the cancellation. sure if you get 100 pax and still can accomodate more, we’ll be more than happy to show up once our schedule is confirmed (end of june or middle of July) and dress up to the theme (and give surprises!!!)

  40. Dear All
    We greatly appreciate all the support from so many friends here. Dolly and I would like to thank each and everyone here for your comments, payments and suggestions. It is very encouraging indeed.

    Dear Rosalind
    The min. 100 pax was our ‘bargaining chip’ to secure a good package deal. Sure we can lower the number but the cost will be spread out to each participant. It is the committee’s aim to keep cost as low as possible.

    Dear Frisna
    The committee have not thrown in the towel yet so don’t give up so easily. We would very much love to have your gang of 5 whom I remember clearly to be very supportive of past D&Ds, very sporting in games and will really make an effort to dress up to the theme. We look forward to your participation.

    THANKS TO MOLLY CHUA – our Person-In-Charge of F&B – SGCC HAS AGREED TO EXTEND THE DATELINE TILL END OF NEXT WEEK – thereby giving members more time to pay up.

  41. #121 Dolly Lim,

    Dolly mei mei, if the final figure of paying participants for this event is less than 100 pax, can the committee requests from the Serangoon Country Club for a smaller function room? Hopefully, they have one and can accomodate the <100 members.


  42. Dear Dolly & the Team

  43. Hi Dolly

  49. Hi Veronique,

    You can also teach us the basic steps in belly dancing and I am sure that there are many of us who are keen to learn from you if and only if you initiate the move and here I STRONGLY encourage you not to disappoint us.

    Nothing to be pai seh about. SHCians are a bunch of understanding lot.

    Char Yue ! Char Yue !

  50. Hi Veroniqueen @ 113 ,

    Perhaps to you, you may have set high standards but to us lay man it is good enough for us just to see you dance.

    We appreciate very much if you could dance on stage with your wriggling slender and slim torso accompanied by your favourite Arabian music. And don’t forget to wear your Ali baba pants and complete with
    ” Aladdin ” shoes and a sexy veil.

  51. Hi Veronique Dear #113

    Don paiseh lah, just show us whatever you can dance & teach us some belly dance steps.


  52. Hi Terence,#99

    Thanks for the compliment, I’m just trying my best to support the organising committee who is working very hard for us to enjoy later.

    Joe Choo is also looking forward to meet his old friend and colleague. According to him, it has been a long time since you both worked together at the then Straits Times. However, Joe Choo is still unable to loggon to the SHC website with the password given.

    Hi Steven #102

    I agree that belly dancing is my passion, but I’m still not good enough to perform on stage leh! Maybe, I can show you the “camel-walk” in bellydancing.


  53. Hi Terence,

    I also cannot dance, and worst, I also cannot drink whisky.

    Perhaps, the good dancers of the Night can teach those who
    cannot dance a few simple steps in Line dancing so that we can be seen as “participating” and not end up as “wall flowers”.


  54. Dear Dolly,

    Amt of S$45 has been transferred to your POSB Savings Account at 16:20 hrs. The Ref no is 8822, very the swee number – can buy bay pio…:)

    Thank you

  55. Norlinda, you made me “kang cheong” lah. I am also checking mah, now that Joe Leow confirmed attending, can transfer $$$ already.

    Dolly, $90 has been transferred to your account via ibanking a while ago. Reference: 7723188381. Thank you all the EOs and committee members for making this event happen.

    Ah Nee

  56. Terence@100..

  59. Hi Dolly & Lily,

    My apologies for delaying payment. At the day of the picnic I didn’t have enough cash with me.

    Dolly, forgive this forgetful lady hor. I should have asked my laogong for the money to pay you when we were waiting for him to pick me up after the picnic. I feel v bad.

    I’ll do the tt by this evening. Will let you know the transaction no asap.

    Sorry, sorry, sorry….:(

    apa macam ah…very lambat le…hhmm..

    Sorry for the delay..cos im ‘chief’ just came back from holiday…so didn’t do my job!…ooppsss!haha :)

  63. Hi Veronique Lee,

    I understand you took up belly dancing for many years and that was your passion.

    I hope you could volunteer yourself on stage to entertain us with your belly dancing and shows us that natural belly dancing can be FUN to achieve a trim and slender waistline better than taking Slim 10 etc….

  64. Hi Dolly

    Just paid $45 via internet banking today..takes 2-3 days.


  65. Hi Dolly, Lily,

    Although I am not the EO of the Arabian night, I have a request for consideration. There are many members who cannot dance, and they feel very uncomfortable dancing, especially with Cha cha, rock and roll, waltz, mambo jumbo something, or anything which requires dancing to steps.

    I also feel very uncomfortable, if a lady ask me to dance; I find it difficult to say no, and yet, I know that I will make a clown of myself on the dance floor. Sometimes, the lady will just think I am such an idiot, not able to dance after 57years. It’s nice to say “Dont worry, do what you can”, but then I cannot enjoy the event, and will find excuses to go to the toilet 6 times a night, or maybe even to go out for a cigarette.

    Would you and other ladies mind, if I bring along a bottle of whiskey, pay for the cockcage and enjoy an evening of laughter and fun with other 2 left feet chickens. Looking at the list of participants, I see many good dancers, or more than just good dancers.

    I hope those who are in the same situation as me, will say something.

  66. Well done Veronique for initiating the payments. And I look forward to meeting an old colleaque of mine Joe Choo.

    For fellow participants, your early payment gives confidence to the organisers, who are looking forward to make the evening “Arabian night” to your fun and entertainment. It also gives all of us a chance to meet friends, in an entirely different setting and environment.

    Terence Seah

  67. Hi Dolly,

    I’ve just transferred $90 to your POSB Savings AC via ibanking, being payment for Joe Choo and Veronique.

    I wish to thank you and the organising committee for all the hard work you all have put in.


  68. Hi Dolly

    I’m logging in on behalf Karen Wong as she encountered error while logging in. She has tsf $90 for herself no. 84 and her hubby Pharis no. 80 transaction ref: 7717391802 dated 21/5


  69. Wow Wow Wow!!!

    When I saw the registration exceeding 110pax in end April, I thot that I could “safely withdraw” from this event (due to some biz matter needs attending to during the said date) without up-setting the planning, the organising committee etc …. since the numbers are already sufficient/there.

    Had also make it a point to inform the EOs as early as possible so that it does not become a hinderance to their planning efforts.

    But atlas, it appears that I am wrong! I am truly sorry for the organising committee who had put in so much of their OWN time, their bottomless efforts as well as any upfront out-of-pocket expenses to plan for this event so that many SHCians may get to enjoy themselves….

    A BIG MISTAKE is not putting up a “PAY UP/BY DATE” earlier in the post.

    Anyway, I still hope that this event will materialise and wish the organising committee members well and as the saying goes: “Bai Ren Chen Ching”!

    p/s: No offence intended or directed at anyone. Just speaking out my mind……

  70. Dear EOs,
    Annie Tang and myself not able to attend this event, kindly please take out our names.


  71. Hi EO

    I have make payment for Helen Kuek today. Pls update.



  72. Thank you Admin for moving the post to the top.

    Thank you Gabriella for helping to urge people to pay up.

    Please transfer payment to her POSB Saving A/C# 146-00513-6. By 25 May, if we do not get 100 paid pax, this event will be cancelled. Refund will be made to all those who have paid.

    So far, less than 40% had paid.

  73. dear EOs

    I’m just doing my bit to help Dolly, Lily etc
    who are up to their neck in organising this Arabian Night for SHCians.

    Many thanks!


    Warmest regards,

  75. Hi Dolly,

    Never know that a mirror image of me appears on your list .
    Pls. check Name list 95 and 118. Both names appear the same or is there another new member also called Steven Chan who wants to beat my record.
    Ha! ha! :)

  76. Hi Everyone,
    A great thank you to Gebby for in helping us to expedite n some payments were collected from some members at the picnic potluck yesterday.

    As we need to pay confirmed deposit for the utilization of the function room before May 27.

    Cancelation of members’ participation keep coming in but payment receivables yet to receive from those confirmed members todate, hence, we had decided to set a closing date for this payment on May 25 2012. Hopefully, by then, we can receive enough participation of members still keen to support this event.

    If not, we had no choice but to call off this event as it will not be fair for the committee to absorb the penalty deposit in view of this.

    We are aware of the disappointment of those members paid earlier but we had no other choice should this event be canceled.

    As far as the committee is concerned, cancelation will only be the last resort as we had indeed working very hard to get this event ongoing getting sponsors for games, tables’ draws and other deco ornament all way from Onan.

    Some members told me that it would be due to this post had already been pushed to very rock bottom hence some might have forgotten this event – Is this really true, if so, Admin, can you help to prioritize this to the top again?

    Let’s see if there are some miracles…. Cheers.. Dolly

  77. Hi Everyone,

    Was looking forward so much to attending the Arabian Nite…we were even looking at the costumes…but alas

    But I think its only fair to inform you early…

    Richard Ong

  97. Hello there Cecilia #51.
    I will write to you with a detailed map and exact location of function room.

    Welcome to Serangoon Garden Counry Club. I am a member and can show you around if you like. I live 3 minutes from the Club and I hit the gym in the evenings and on Saturday mornings. You are welcome to have a meal with me.

    Cheers, winnie

  98. Hi Dolly,

    Just received flight confirmation back to Singapore, in time to attend the “Arabian Nite”. Please register Peggy and I for the event. Sorry for being late.
    Thank you!

  99. #51 Cecilia,

    Sorry. Kensington Room is the name of the function room where this event is going to be held. Helliconia Wing is where you’ll find Kensington Room. It’s on Level 3. If you’re lost and cannot find any signage ask any staff of the club for directions. You shouldn’t have any problem locating the venue as most of the members will be dressed like Arabs (I hope) and all you have to do is stop them and ask if they’re attending Arabian Nite. You won’t be wrong if you stop a local and not an actual Arab…:p


  100. #51 Cecilia,

    SGCC stands for Serangoon Gardens Country Club. It’s very near to Chomp Chomp.

    Helliconia Wing is the name of the function room.


  101. Dolly Dolly….

    The number of pax over 100 already, have not registered early because I am checking on my other event date. Now can join “liao”, pls include me.

    Also, Joe Leow is interested in the ARABIAN NITE, kindly include him. For table seating, we are okay to sit any table as long as there are seats available. Thank you

    Ah Nee

  102. Hi James,
    Welcome but kindly note that this event is solely for SHC registered member, thus, is your partner a registered member also, if so, what is her name, we need to put this down also.

    Cheers.. Dolly

  103. Hi. Please register me and partner for this dinner on 28 July 2012. Please also advise how do I pay up. Thanks.
    James Tan JH

  104. #48 Last sentence refers.

    Sorry, I inadvertently (meaning unintentional, honest oversight or mistake) left out the word “Singapore” between
    high-cost and without enjoying………


  105. #44 Hi Dan,

    Isn’t it wishful thinking to imagine that wives can be so generous as to allow their husbands to be seen hugging stunningly beautiful Arabian damsels with hour-glass shapes in overly revealing costumes. Hey, please wake up!

    Enraged wives armed with rolling pins might be peeping in from outside the dance hall for an opportunity to strike hard……..real hard!

    Well, help is on the way for a husband who has an Aladdin’s lamp to make a quick getaway. He can call on the
    Genie to get his wife see him as invisible. Nothing is impossible with Mr. Genie, as we are led to believe.

    I do hope what I have written will not sour my friendly relations with both Dan and Charles. Life can be pretty tough in high-cost without enjoying jokes once in a while.


  106. #41 Hi Charles Chua,

    “Don’t brush teeth for one week,” by a competitor may so stun other competitors to faint from his bad breath that they fall out of the competition one by one leaving him the sole surviving competitor left standing to claim the first prize.

    Oh, your knockout strategy is so potent that the fainted have to be carried on stretchers down the stage for medical attention. Brilliant, simply brilliant!

    Good recommendation. Ha, ha, ha.

  107. All registered members for DnD, please don’t forget to wear your name tag hor… Cheers.. Dolly

  108. Ha Dan,

    You have been watching too many movies. Get Real. There’s no flying carpet and no harem.

    Nevertheless, live it up when you can. Enjoy.

  109. Hi Charles,

    No lah, you made it sound so gross. I would rather come under Karen’s knife and perhaps ride out in style as sheik Omar Dan Sharif with an entourage of enchanting Arabian girls!


  110. #41 Charles Chua,

    Hahahaha….you’re so funny and so explicit in your description of ‘How to look like an Arab’…


  111. Hi Dan,

    Very simple to look like an Arab lah, get white bedsheet, cut a hole for your neck and drape it over your whole body. Make sure you have underpants on.

    For the top, get a small white/beige table cloth, or even a checked tea cloth and a fan belt from your car and you have the headress.

    For finer details, grow a moustache, use some kiwi polish, camel or tan colour and don’t brush your teeth for a week.

    Quite sure you will win some prizes then.

    Also, no need to have shoes, just some leather sandals and perhaps some prayer beads.

    Have a great evening.

  112. Ros

    Using the bikini top is one of the idea I hv as well n the other one is those sport type of top for yoga – I don know wat tat call like those top tat Indian lady wear with sari .. That will be easy to wear sequin on it.

    Well, I believe you already hv yr ideas too.

    Dan – I sure know u will behave since u the only guy in our table.


  113. Hi Dolly,

    Hope I am not too late to register,please count me in for this interesting event.


    Grace Kang

  114. #33 Karen Thio,

    You are so kind to offer a day to help the ladies seated at your table with their Arabic costumes. I dare to bare my belly lah but it’s a sagging belly wor….:( Dunno people see already will puke or not leh….:(

    I was thinking of getting a cheap set of bikinis and then sewing lots of sequins onto the bikini top. For the bikini bottom must cover up with transparent cloth sewn onto it like a long skirt. Buttock area must cover up swee swee coz
    old lady also has saggy buttocks mah…

    Please let me know when you’re holding the session as I’d love to pick up some better ideas from you.

    Cheers and thank you

  115. Hi Terence #31 and Dolly
