The following are some of the ways you can help to make my task simpler:

payment to my account, details as follows:
Account Name: Tan Wah Cheng A/c # 020-013689-8
Bank: DBS Account type: Autosave
* Pay through Internet transfer, ATM or Quick Cheque deposit
* Please notify me through this blog once you have transferred payment so that I
can confirm receipt. Pl indicate the amount and mode of payment.
* If you are making payments on behalf of your friends, please inidcate all their names in your notification. Pl indicate if there are any non-members.
* Finally consolidated payments are preferred as it mimises the number of bank transactions.

Please feel free to highlight if I have omitted any pertinent points. Thank you for
your cooperation.

    (Terence – for your info).

    Tks.

    G

  9. Hi Guests of Taipei Cabaret (SHC members)

    cc Terence – fyi

  10. Hi Boon Liang

    Ref yr telephone chat w me, you indicated that you’ve another guest Lydia Poh (?) for your table 1? Wd appreciate if you could put this on the blog here urgently so that I can include her as the 101 guest….

    Hurry while seats last!!

    Cheerio,
    Gabriella

  11. Hi BL

    Noted … Lydia Poh is the 101th guest. I’ve put her on the Waiting list.

    Will transfer her to your relevant table later on ~ when anyone withdraws or if, we have space for more seats.

    Regards,
    Gabriella

  12. Hi Terence

    Terry has submitted his membership application this morning. Can you please
    approve it if his application is OK.

    Thank you,

  13. Hi Gabrielle

    Please cancel Lily, Jway, Ah Née & Michael, Nor & Molly. They can’t make it. Our table now consists of : Hou Chong, Lina, Mega, Jane, R Leong, Lydia Poh, Douglas, Suzhang.
    Please update accordingly.

    Suzhang

  14. Hi Suzhang

    Ref your comments above, I have updated the name list accordingly.

    Gabriella

  15. HI…

    New member Lim Hoe Seng’s membership to SHC has been processed & approved on 2nd May. Kindly update the comments. Thanks. He is in the drama team.

    Also, there’s another non-active member, Babara Ong keen to join this event, and she’s planning to sing some songs. She’s quite a good singer, and has taken part in TV shows. Pls put her on my table.

    We have the treasurer Babara Lim on our table, and I hope there will not be any confusion between the 2 Babaras.

    Regards, LydiaC.

  16. Hi Boon Liang

    You enquired about the charges for non-members. I’ve clarified with Terence and it’s $30.

    Payment charges are indicated above.

    Regards,
    Gabriella

  17. Hi Lydia and Gabriella

    If it is OK with both of you, can you transfer me to the last table to sit with
    Terry Leow. This will avoid any confusion of having two Barbara’s in the same
    table. Besides, Terry is new to SHC and I assume he would welcome a familiar
    face on the same table. Tks.

  18. Hi Barbara

    It’s fine w me as I only take instructions from Guests if you all have obtained the consensus of your table leaders.

    Take it that I have to KIV this until Lydia (or Pearl) agrees?

    Wd appreciate an early advice so that I can amend accordingly.

    Tks,
    Gabriella

  19. Hi Gabriella

    I was informed by Terry today that his membership has been approved.
    Would appreciate if you could update accordingly.
    Thank you,

  20. Hi Barbara

    Will update for Terry Leow. Pl advise whether the table leader has agreed to your transfer to Terry’s table?

    Tks,
    Gabriella

  21. Hi Gabriella,

    My only means of contact with Lydia and Pearl is through this blog because I have
    not met them before. My name was submitted to Pearl through Johnny Pow.
    Guess, I will have to wait for either Lydia and Pearl to respond through this blog.

    Tks

  22. Hi Barbara,
    I was told by Johnny Pow that all his frens prefer to sit with him.
    If there’s a need for you to sit with Terry Leow, please acknowledge JP since he added you. Its ok with me.

    pearl.

  23. Hi Pearl,

    You are right, we would have preferred to be on the same table as Johnny. However, currently, a few of us are not on the same table with him, so I don’t think he would mind me shifting to another table.

    Hi Gabriella,

    Peng Peng is having problem with her PC and has asked me to submit Ronald Swee’s name (SHC member) for this event. Ronald would like to be seated with
    Peng Peng, so I think he can take over my seat on the same table, while you transfer me to the same table as Terry.

    Tks and I hope this works well for everyone.

  24. Hi Gabby,

    Please help to amend number 76 name to Ann Low as wrongly submitted to Pearl.
    Sorry for any inconvenient caused.
    Thank you
    Judy

  25. Hi Barbara,
    Alice Teo has trsfr’d $40 directly to Tan Wah Cheng A/c # 020-013689-8 on 5 May 2013, Ref#6656 at 20:28.

    Alice Teo is from my table#1.
    I’ll settle trsfr of balance $390 to your acct later this evening. Will revert after trsfr is completed.

I am sorry for this lapse in judgement on my part, Rgds

  70. Hi Barbara

    A friend of mine, Chua Seng Chong has asked me to register him for the event as he is unable to access his pc.

    I’ve told him to transfer $20 to your account.

    Cheersssssssss

  71. Hi Gabriella,
    Please include Paul, Peggy Kong & Nina Choo in table 1 & 2.
    Final arrangement will be sorted out later.
    I’ill arrange payment shortly. Thanks

  72. Hi Guests

  107. Hi Barbara
    According to Boon Liang (sent message to me), he said that Peggy and Paul Kong have paid. Tks.

    Hi Bira, Bernie, Lynn Tai, Moly Quek, George Chew, Audrey and Richard Lean, ~
    I’m finalising the seating plan and name list for the Cabaret Nite and would greatly appreciate if you could transfer your funds soon. Tks.

    Regards……

  108. Hi Boon Liang
    I don’t think I have received notification of payment for Peggy and Paul Kong.
    Can you please advise the date when payment was made into my account so that I can confirm payment receipt.
    Thank you,

  109. Some updates for our member who are attending the Taipei Cabaret night.

    1. We have a change of the live musician. We are now having Jeffrey Gan who will play live music with our singers. Jeffrey is known to many singers and dancers. He is fluent in Hokkien and Mandarin songs. To date., he has done one practice session with the singers. Another practice has been scheduled closer the date.

    2. Judy Lim, assisted by Janet Chan, is in charge of the singing segment. I understand there will be about 15 singers who will entertain us during the cabaret opening. I like to thank them for the effort and time spent coming for the practice. We can be sure they will bring our the best of good old memories of love, hate, romance, joy, sadness and revenge. And that, together with Jeffrey, the singers will help us enjoy a night of dancing and drinking.

    3. A special slot has also be allocated for a short drama. The story line is related to the life and style in Taiwan. Unfortunately, I dont have the details, although the group has been in correspondence with me; It will be a nice surprise, and I look forward to the show, while having some brandy. Thank you to the guys and ladies in the team.

    4. A special need for the night is a videographer. I have asked him, and he has told me that even if I did not ask,he will still videograph the night. He is Boon Liang. Thanks BL.

    5. We need one or two photographers during the night. Please raise your hand if you can shoot for us.

    6. Very soon, we will be hearing from our two co-stage managers. Please keep track.

    7. I am hoping we can have a game during the Cabaret night. A lady member has been approached, and she has agreed to consider. Let’s look forward to her getting us all hot up.

    8. Payment: For those who have paid, thank you. If you have not, please do so, so that we can complete our organisation work.

    9. Our co-owner Tian Soo has informed he is not able to make it during the night of the Cabaret night. This leaves Lai Fong alone as the other co-owner. Would you like to hold Lai Fong’s hand and come on stage to welcome the guests?

    10. Guys and gals, look forward to seeing everybody in the best of dress into Taipei night.

  115. Hi Frisna

    I’ve registered your guest, Peter Tan. He will be seated at Bessie Lam’s table of 6. Welcome Peter ~

    Take it that he is a SHC member and he will be charged $25 since he has signed up after the closing date of 31.5.13 (pl see Terence’s instruction above).

    Tks & regards,
    Gabriella

  116. Hi Gabriella

    Please register Lim Tian Soo for this epic event and seat him at Boon Liang’s table 2. He will also be the co-owner to hold Lai Fong’s hand.

    Hi Barbara

    TS will transfer $25 soon.

    1. Hi Geraladine,

      i wasn’t able to convince Tian Soo to come to the Cabaret. You definitely have your charms to convince him. We are now able to see the new owners of the new Cabaret on stage that night. Thank you.

      Terence Seah

  117. Hi Geraldine

    Welcome to the Cabaret Night ~

    Nice hearing from you :-) Glad that Tian Soo will be coming. He’ll be seated at Boon Liang’s table 2 as requested.

    Cheersssssssssss

  118. hi Gabby
    peter aka p.j tan is not member hence will pay $30.
    please refresh my memory:
    what does the fee entitle us to is it for snacks and 1 drink only?

  119. Hi Hi Frisna

    Yes, non-members will have to pay $30 (sori, didnt know Peter Tan is’nt a member).

    The amount paid by each guest will entitle him/her to one drink and tidbits (viz: crackers, nuts and sweets). However, Fairy Godmother will be providing grasshoppers and silkworms too!!!

    I’m sure everyone will have a fantastic time.

    Cheerssssss

  120. Hi Barbara,

    This is on behalf of George Chew (No. 88).

    He has transferred $20 to your account no 14/06/2013 @ 18:26.
    Ref. 2024.
    Location : NTUC UE BIZHUB.

    Kindly update paid status beside his name.

    Thanks!
    Lydia Chin.

  121. Terence

    Sorry for being indecisive, my testosterone finally decides for my brain. It is men’s vulnerability.
    My only excuse to you and consolation for myself is to know that my hormones are still healthy and passion is still there. I believe dirty old man have more fun.

    You should have also told me earlier that I am allowed to hold Lai Fong’s hand.

    Barbara
    I transferred $25 this morning from DBS at IMM. Ref.0017.

    1. Hi Tian Soo,

      We are all very happy that you and Lai Fong have bought over the Cabaret from the previous owners, and that both of you will be present at the launch night. Your singers have been practising for this evening, and we hope you will enjoy TAipei Cabaret Night 2013.

      All tickets for the Cabaret night have been sold. The evening promises lots of dancing and singing, and we have Jeffrey Gan and the local DJ to bring back old memories of the 70s, with plenty of Hokkien and Mandarin songs, sprinkled with Cantonese and English songs. Your two co-stage managers are for the first time a couple, Patrick Oei and Linda Chua. They will draw the best of the evening from the guests and the singers.

      Gabriella Chua and her team will be at the registration desk and will make sure you and Lai Fong are red carpet to your table. Barbara Lim is our treasurer and you can be sure the tills are full on opening night.

      A videographer is in place, and he will capture your cutting the ribbons, after both of you have welcomed the guests with your opening speeches. The flowers and ribbons are specially donated by Ah Nee, though she won’t be present.

      The entire idea of Taipei Cabaret Night was conceived by Mega, while he was on holidays in Loas. He is our co-EO. Mega has also been doing the job of cordinating with the Tanjung’s manager, looking at the drinks list and the venue.

      The event is coming together well, and our guests will be coming with glittering dresses, high slits, all made up to the days of the 70s. The men will be big spenders and they are looking forward to enjoy an evening of good music, song, and dancing.

      Thank you Tian Soo and Lai Fong. And to the members behind Taipei Cabaret 2013.

      Terence Seah

  122. Hi Tian Soo,
    Confirmed receipt of $25 from you and I have updated payment record accordingly.
    However, I am not sure why you are paying $25 instead of $20. Did you sign up after 31 May?
    Rgds
    Barbara

  123. Hi Tian Soo
    I went through the blog and noticed your registration was after 31 May. So payment of $25 is in order.
    In my earlier comment , I just wanted to make sure I am collecting the
    correct amount, especially from the Co-Owner – I don’t want to risk being fired from my job.
    Looking forward to meeting you again,

  124. Terence

    As the previous co-owner, it’s not acceptable to me to see the pleasant, sweet Lai Fong all by herself so I fiddled with some testosterone and now we will all have huge hard-ons and have an awesome blast! Bring it!

    The clincher was when TS realized he can hold Lai Fong’s hand; he perked up and looked very happy.

    Do make sure you have enough red wine for all of us; Lai Fong is my drinking buddy.

    You are welcome. I am still useful to the club, rite? Bwahahahaaa………mwah.

  125. Dear EOs & committee members

    Thank you for all the work, co- ordination. ….a tough job.

    Hi Geraldine
    You r great…..if not I #tot ku yat hock# and yes, red red wine:-)

    TS – I wanna hold your hand le…finally we can welcome the guest together. If not I “yam kong lor” “ko lian”..

    Looking foward to fun n laughter ….

    Cheers!
    Lai Fong

  126. Dear SHC Members

  134. Hi EO

    Just asking – should it be first come first serve basis on the table arrangement?
    I was the first few to book a table and why am I getting such bad seating ??

    Or U are only servicing The Big Boss with More tables reservation ?????

    Karen

  135. Hi Karen,

    I note your comment, and I hope you would not feel any prejudice over the table allocation. Do let me know, if you feel there was any unfairness.

    As with a similar Cabaret event held at the same premise, the sitting arrangement was considered optimal to accommodate SilverHairsClub. Do let me know what is the bad seating, and we shall see if something can be done.

    As discussed with the Lounge manager, the venue could accommodate 120 pax. As EO, I don’t see any intention on the part of me or my committee to over-stretch the number of tables. Again, if you have heard anything that I may not know, feel free to let me know.

    It is my belief that we keep everybody informed of as much as we can on the forum. We update the Club regularly. However, I hope you and your table members appreciate the difficulty of this task, and we have tried to manage the sittings of group preferences, despite changes and changes. Personally, I have tried to get volunteers for this task of handling registration and table arrangements, but the response was not forthcoming. On this note, I thank Gabriella for helping me as EO with this task.

    At this stage, we are very close to the event date. While I note your comments, I would think we should keep to the seatings as drawn, as we still have a lot of details to finalise. My apology if my explanation is not satisfactory.

    Terence Seah

  136. Dear Karen

    I’m indeed ‘surprised’ by your remarks above.

    The tables have been allocated according to the priority of registration as given in the list above. Terence is the first to book, followed by me, then Boon Liang and you are the fourth (No. 4). You have been given the 4th best table. Both Mega and myself have discussed at length before we allocate the tables as given in the plan above.

    You may not be aware that there were a few critical points for us to consider before the allocation :
    – nearness to the speakers
    – to try and bunch those who have booked two or three tables (viz: Boon Liang and Pearl) within close proximity
    – number of people per table ~ some tables can accommodate 10-11, some 7, two small round table can accommodate 3

    However, for any dancing function, the tables/sofas are all arranged in a circular pattern surrounding the dance floor and I can assure everyone that all guests will have the best view from their tables ~ just viewing from a different vantage point.

    Last but not least, we’ve not tried to squeeze in as many people as possible. The lounge has a capacity for 120 people and we’re just trying to take advantage of this and allowing as many members as possible to join in the camaraderie and fun.

    You can trust that I’m doing this ‘thankless job’ so that everyone can enjoy and have a great time. That’s my goal and not for personal glory ~ I’m just returning back what I’ve gained so much from Terence’s selfless gift of the SHC. Hahaha

    However, no worries, just feel free to air your views … on this note, I would like to thank Karen for her frank views.

    BE HAPPY, ENJOY AND HAVE FUN ……

    Warmest regards,
    Gabriella

  137. Gabrielle

    I m more surprised by the unfair arrsngenent of the seats/table.

    I booked the table for my group n upfront $240 payment the moment the committee gave Barbara account detail . If I m.not wrong. I did the transfer the next following day ..why the rush of be the first to book a table n make the full payment ? I want get a better seats for my Fren.

    Anyone who look at the table arrangement can tell Orbison planned out of favourism n not first come first serve basic.

    In a party even w a live band n stage ..who son want to have a better view of the performance. It does not matter his big is the place . I was at this place more than 10 times,

    During a DND org by. Francis few year back . He arranged the best seats to all his dancing kaki n there were hell of complaints n unhappiness in this event.

    EO n committees should have learnt a lesson n not to make the same mistake.

    Since I m the one who name full payment $240 fot this table , I like to cancel the booking . Individual members on by table will sign in on theirvown n make the payment to u on their own.

  138. Hi Karen

    Your rationale on the table and seating arrangements is 360 degrees away from the instruction given to me.

    I also wish to say that I’m a fairly new member in SHC and I’m not aware of any history on table arrangements done before.

    Perhaps, Terence and Mega can explain ..

    Thank you.

  139. Dear Karen

    Your ‘accusation’ of the table arrangements based on ‘FAVOURITISM’ is indeed uncalled for.

    For your information, I have not entered into any conversation with any members re: the table arrangement. You can ask all the members around. Only Terence, Mega and myself have seen the seating plan before it was released on the shc blog.

    I’m a person who don’t indulge in unnecessary gossips with anyone – male or female.

    Nonetheless, no hard feelings….however, ONLY THE TRUTH SETS ONE FREE.

    Regards,
    Gabriella

  140. Hi Karen

    My apologies if you have been upset with the table arrangement. Nonetheless, just come and enjoy with your friends… ok? Can I take it that you’re coming dear?

    Actually, some hiccups as such are expected. After all, we are only amateurs trying to make do with whatever little skills we have.

    Have a nice day :-)

    Cheers

  141. Hi everyone

    After hearing some comments this evening, I have discussed the matter with Terence. He said that the seating plan is final and we will not change.

    However, the table leaders can contact me direct if they need an explanation.

    Thank you once again for your support and understanding.

    Regards,
    Gabriella

  142. Hi all

    Allow big mouth old cow here to say something.

    I understand where both Karen and Gabriella are coming from; as a participant and a front desk co-ordinator.

    Karen has her point and Mega/Gabriella should have made it transparent in terms of how the seating is going to be (Gabby, just indulge me).

    Let’s leave Terence out of this CUZ he does not care if we end up on the toilet seat or in the carpark – which is why I can’t stand him and he hates me, whateverrrrr……….

    Point is, we can’t read the committee’s mind and Mega/Gabriella must tell us before the seating plan is finalized.

    That said, I totally agree that the seating plan should not change and I hope Karen and her frens will join us – table 4 is still alright (unobstructed and away from the speakers); just ignore Terence.

  143. Good morning everyone

    Geraldine – TQ for your comments.. appreciate as it gives me an opportunity to explain once and for all.

    I would like to clarify how we came up with this seating plan.

    Just reiterating what I’ve written above in my reply to Karen Thio. The tables have been allocated according to the priority of registration i.e. booking of tables as given in the registration list above (MAIN CRITERION). This criterion was stated from the very beginning when Terence started the bookings on this blog. Terence was the first to book, followed by Gabriella, Boon Liang, Karen and so on until the last table. (I booked my table before I was tasked to do the seating plan anyway).

    Besides the main criterion, there were also a few critical points for us to consider before the allocation:
    – nearness to the speakers (noise)
    – tables with high stools and benches (Tables 8, 9, 11)
    – bunching together those who booked more than one table (viz: Boon Liang and Pearl Wong) within close proximity
    – number of people per table – some tables can accommodate 10-11 people, some 7, two small round tables of 3 each).

    All the tables/sofa are arranged in a circular pattern surrounding the dance floor and all seats are unobstructed.

    Sofa 1 – Terence
    Sofa 2 – Gabriella
    Sofa 3 – Tan Boon Liang
    Table 4 – Karen Thio
    (these 4 are straightforward .. allocated in order of registration given above)

    Table 5, 8, 9 – Pearl Wong (allocated within close proximity since Pearl has booked 3 tables for her friends.. Table 8, 9 can accommodate 7 people each + small round Table 8, 9 which can accommodate 3 each)

    Table 6 – Tan Boon Liang (allocated within close proximity of his sofa 3 since he has booked two tables for his friends)

    Sofa 7 – Mega (took this because of nearness to sound system)

    Table 8, 9 – explained above

    Table 10 – Tan Seow Mai (allocated this table as there were no more tables of 10 left)

    Table 11 – last table for the late registrants (can accommodate only 7 people)

    We feel that we’ve tried our best to give everyone the best vantage view, and, of course, meeting our rationale in seat allocation.

    I would like to reiterate that Mega and I met twice to discuss this seating plan. Thereafter, Mega discussed with Lisa, the Club Manager. When everything was finalised, it was submitted to Terence for approval. Only Terence, Mega and I have access to this seating plan before it was released on the SHC forum page for all to view (None of us divulged to friends or relatives ..).

    I hope the above clarifies on how the seating plan was derived and I trust that you’ll appreciate that we’ve tried our best to ensure everyone will be happy, enjoy and have fun. It was never our intention to show any favouritism or create unhappiness or division among members. We are all above 45 and we know not what tomorrow will bring ~ so let’s sing, dance and enjoy the wine, women, men and songs ~ (haha)

    Looking forward to seeing everyone of you at the Cabaret Night on 20.7.13. All of you are VIPs! (VIP Karen – expect to c u ok?)

    Till we meet again :-) Be Happy, Stay Healthy

    Cheerio ~~~~
    Gabriella

  144. Hi GT, my lady boss

    You mentioned a word “transparent”, I am not quite agreed with. “Transparent” cannot make everyone happy, after the “transparent”, someone will still unsatisfied. “Transparent” can also be very time consuming.

    I think the problem occurred is due to Gabriella and Mega do the allocation of the tables for the others. Yes, they have put a great effort and be as fair as possible on this, but what they think good may be the worst for the others. Why not let them to choose???

    When Gabriella has the floor plan, she can ask the people who booked the table (s) to choose by themselves according to some criteria – e.g. who book the table first or who pay up the money first, etc, etc.

    For example, if the criteria is who book the table first, then the choosing sequence should be: Terence, Gabriella, Boon Liang, Karen ….. In this case, even the people choose the worst table, he/she shouldn’t many thing to say.

    Sometimes we are working hard for something and want to get the best from it, but we will ?????. The opinion from an 63 old man.

  145. Although I am not attending this event, I do peep in once in a while to read the latest. Karen, I remembered you were very supportive by being the first to jio your kakis to join the event and the first to pay for all your kakis.

    Wow! congratulations Karen! You’ve been made a VIP so you get to sit at Gabriella’s table?

    Cheers
    Carly

  146. I will probably get kicked out of SHC for being kaypoh and giving my comments even though I am not attending this event. As Taipei Night is all about cabaret in Taipeh with Hokien and Mandarin songs, I feel I will be like a fish out of water – not understanding Hokien or Mandarin songs.

    Anyway, I must applaud Terence for initiating this event of the year.

    I feel that barring committee members, SHC members who have booked and paid are given the right of ‘first-come-first-serve’ in table selection. From what I’ve read it is apparent that priority of tables are given to those who book more tables, whether they book earlier or later. Perhaps it should be clearly clarified right from the start that members who book more table will be given choice tables and seated in close proximity with all their friends.

    Am I stirring a pail of s**t? Oh well…words do get around and somehow somewhere something is just not right.

    Good luck to the EOs

    Hi Barbara
    Hv TT $240 (12 pax) at my table.

    The above are the first 2 comments for this extravaganza event. Scroll to the very top to see. The good thing about records in cyberspace – nobody, perhaps except the owner, can change it (if he wants). And they will stay there as long as the owner sees fit. Remember Mr. Snowden – he took advantage of this “weakness” in the system and stole the limelight, among other things.

    Back to our nitty gritty – over a silent night and $340 in the kitty. Not bad for a start. The situation then was – Karen running closely behind Gabriella in a race. The third was quite a distance behind.

    Fast forward and we are now at the prize giving ceremony

    For all intent and purpose, the sofa sets 2, 3 and 1 are 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes respectively (picture the Olympic-winner rostrum). Hence, Terence, Garbriella and Karen should be at Sofa sets 2, 3 and 1 respectively. Of course, having said that, “every seat is a good seat”. But there is this thing called, “it is a matter of opinion” and opinions certainly do not differ much here, I believe.

    If everything fails, we have this thing called balloting – or “lucky draw”. Remember the allocation of places in Pr. 1?
    Too late to change anything? Not sure. The organizer(s) always has/have the final say.

    And I would like to dedicate this song to all concerned,

  148. Wow wow.
    Have not been reading for so long.

    I can see a lot of passion for this event.
    Karen is my friend. Gabriella is my friend.
    We are all friends.

    I know Gabriella has worked so hard for shc of late.
    Objectively, she did indicate table allocation by Booking.

    However in all events, no money no talk. I would have thought those who pay first gets first priority esp in this case Karen. paid for whole table first.

    Having said that, I like to suggest that Terence table be swopped w Karen.s table..and since a few of the organizers.. are in this table..

    However I think Mega and Terence will be afraid others may want to change too…so with everyone.s permission.. No other swopping. hoh.

    We are here to enjoy right…and party.. Lets put our hair down.. And have a blast..l

    I’m sure with this swop, it will be ok..right.
    Mega/Terence.. Lets be flexible in this for once..
    Spoke to Gabriella on this and she also like to see this swop.

  149. As stage managers, it’s ok for us to take a few more steps to the stage, I need that exercise to help tire that spare tire round my big belly. Haha

  150. Hi Pat

    Tks for your kind thoughts. Really appreciate.

    Yes, we spoke and I agreed also to a swop between T and K’s tables. Any comments from Terence and Mega?

    Regards

  151. Really, what should I say or agree on? All three of my committee members, Mega (co-EO), Gabriella (Regitration) and Pat Oei (Stage manager) have publicly suggested that I quit Table 1. Can I say NO? Yes, I would like to insist on a NO, because I was the first person to register. But, then 3 of our key committee members say I should move aside my table, for not giving fair instructions to my team. If there is something we can learn from, I will always try to say yes.

    I have not seen the haze since it started sometime ago. Didn’t really know that the haze was this bad until when I work up this morning. I only read about the haze on the internet, but it looks alright to me today. To cut all stories and excuses short, Yes, I shall move to Table 4, and Karen’s group can move to Table 1.

    Karen has raised a case of unfair seating and table allocation. It’s good she raise it before the actual event, or else we might have an unhappy night of knives and parangs or a scene being enacted from my favourite hokkien drama on Sat 7pm Channel 8. Karen, I hope you will accept that we have not allocated the tables based on favoritism or not following the briefs given by me, as EO. Even Mega had to be contented to be allocated to sit besides the speaker.

    Maybe, some members were shy to say that Gabriella gave favoritism to Terence and put him on Table 1. She just followed the briefs. I guess Geraldine knew me too well to know I would not care, and let everybody sit in the toilet or in the car park. Geraldine, this is not true, I will always care you, Karen and other members.

    As pointed out by Andrew, it is true the task of seat or table allocation is not easy. Gabriella had spent a lot of precious time with Mega, going over the lounge seating. Would anyone believe that no one and I mean no one in SHC offer to take this role of registration and table seating. This is something that bothers me too, and I believe that we would have to address this issue soon.

    It’s nice of Patrick Oei to bring up this solution of swapping Table 1 and 4. I can only suspect many members have this idea in mind, although few would want to voice out. And Rosalind, the Club does not kick out any member, just because of raising a difficult issue. We would only do so if one breaks the Club’s taboos.

    Cabaret night is a night entertainment event. We have themed this Cabaret night, around the 70s, in the city of Taipei. The Cabaret new owners are Tian Soo and Lai Fong, both who have bought over the place from Jeffrey Lim and Geraldine Ting. I heard that the new owners are planning to buy up a piece of land at Rachadapisek Road, in Bangkok. Some news have leaked out that they are planning to open “Sabadi Sawatdi” and this will be the largest and newest Thai disco in modern Bangkok. It wont just be a “One night in Bangkok”. Keep in touch.

    Let’s have an enjoyable evening during Taipei night.

    Terence Seah

  152. OH dear, I must have hit the “paste” button twice. Sorry for that “double dose”.

    Finally, the “management” has spoken, instead of leaving Gab to face the music alone. Yes, Pat, we are ALL friends. Hence many choose to remain silent for obvious reason. Besides the few “kay pohs”, including me, who care (and dare) to speak their minds out of principle, there must be hundreds perhaps thousands, watching this development intently.

    This serves as a PR exercise for all, particularly EOs and helpers. Always think of possible consequences, eventualities and reactions. Managing damage control, if needed, is equally important. It can be very frustrating that after contributing so much, you find yourself in the “defence corner” explaining things.

    Terence, in HDB flats they pay a premium for the corner unit. Have fun. Hope Pat’s suggestion will be an amicable solution for all. Every person who has paid shall attend this function. Participants ought to move around, hence it does not matter too much, choice table or not. Sing and enjoy.

    Taipei is a mesmerizing and vibrant city. Please sing this song to all members who cannot be there for various reason s (click the link at the bottom of my previous comment)

  153. Wahpiangz,

  154. Hi Terence
    Taipei Night will come and go. But I am looking forward to “One Night In Bangkok” at Sabadi Savatdi. I’ve never heard of this place but it sounds exciting. I think I’ll be OK for three nights in Bangkok!

  159. Hi Karen,

    I refer to your cancellation of $240 on 28 June. I have also agreed that your table can be switched to Table 1.

    Please confirm if you still wish to cancel the table booking or withdraw the cancellation. This will help the organisers adjust accordingly.

    If we don’t hear from you by noon Wed 17 June, we will take your instruction to cancel the booking, as requested. I hope you will come and make a party of the evening.

    Terence Seah

  160. Terence

    Thanks U !

  161. Hi SHC members

    There are 5 seats up for grab if anyone is interested to join this Sat. It’s FOC ! Kindly register yr name here with the committee.

    My sincere apologies to the organizing committee, Mega & Jane. The 5 who cant make it : Lily, Jway, Lina, HC & myself.

    Suzhang

  162. Hi Karen and members,

    I am very pleased that everybody is coming. I wish everybody will enjoy themselves, and most important let your hair down. Ok, also if the dresses are down too.

    Cabaret night is intended to let our memories go back 30-40 years. Music helps brings back old feelings, of love, romance, lust, and youth. It also brings back feelings of hate, sadness and jealousy. Maybe out 1st partners, or even 2nd partners. Let’s all bring ourselves back in time this coming Saturday.

    Please imaging yourself in the 70s, and attending a cabaret, cha cha’ing and rock rolling the whole night.

    I have decided to be the official photographer. So, I shall be looking out for portraits shorts, two’som and full head to toe shots too.

    So, guys and gals, share the dream theme. I look forward to seeing you and everybody at the cabaret.

  164. Hi Susan and fellow guests,

    Allow me to be a bit funny. Actually, I had also been looking at the entire club forum to see when we had put the start time. 2 days ago, I realized there were no start times. Gosh, then I started to worry how come nobody asked. I thought I was the only one who didnt know the start time. Maybe, Mega went ahead with me. Then I thought Tian Soo or Lai Fong decided to kick me out. Or maybe the stage managers had quit and went to work for the new Cabaret in Bangkok.

    Well, it goes like this. Most of us usually go for dinner first. Then, after a good dinner, we start our night entertainment before we actually go home. Perhaps, dinner at 6.30pm and then go to the Cabaret at 9pm. Aiayah, nobody goes to a nightclub at 7pm. The fun starts after 10pm.

    Thanks Susan for raising this question. Being the Cabaret’s opening night, we shall start registration at 5.30pm. Ladies, speak nicely to the men. And, men, come early and speak to the ladies. Tian Soo is buying his new shirt today, and Lai Fong is trying out her hair at the saloon.

    The singers are singing everyday, and the drama team are rehearsing their scripts. Paul Kong, our Batu Pahat night expert will be showing us how to do the 3 or 4 finger games. I wont dare say too much, forgot whether his wife is coming. Dont take dinner too long, as we need your flower balls from Ah Nee. And, Mega, dont forget the snacks and two bottles of wines. Who else is bringing duty free liquor?

    Susan, come as early as 5.30pm. It will be nice to see you in red short skirts.

    Terence Seah

  165. Bro terence ,

  166. Hi Suzhang

    I’ve updated the names of those taking over the 5 tickets. FYI.

    It will be good if I can have their surnames as well. Perhaps, Janie and Paul Kong can advise.

    Tks & regards.

  167. Dear Guests

    Registration for this Saturday’s (20th July) Cabaret Night will commence at 5.30 pm.

    Each guest will get a lucky draw ticket and the relevant coupon for soft drinks or beer upon registration.

    See all of you on Saturday.

  168. Hi

    Helen Kuek and Chua Seng Chong will not be able to attend the event.

    Hence, there are two vacant seats on their respective tables.

    Regards.

  169. Hi Gabriella

    Richard had made payment liao. Kindly replace my name wif his.

    Richard, thanks once again n hv fun ya.

    Pauline .. d(^_^)b

  170. Ref to Janie’s comment above, I’m surprised my name is included in the list? Please delete my name and if I’m able to attend, I will register myself…not sure about BC, let him decide himself!

  171. Hi Martin
    2 weeks ago, Bernard Chan requested me to register for him n you but registration had closed then. Then I saw there are places available n went ahead to register but did not know that you do want to attend now. However, BC had told me that he is attending.
    EOs – my apologies for any inconvenience caused.

    Janie

  172. Janie,

    Your communication with BC was dated back 2 weeks ago…Its only ETHICAL not to block seats unless you are DOUBLY SURE that Bernard could make it for this event. From what has been transpired via smses between me & BC few mins ago, he’s still in BKK! Since BC has his membership reinstated last month, why don’t you ask him to register himself to avert further inconvenience to the EOs?

  173. Hi Paul Kong

    Ref your note to me in the latest blog, please refer to the name list given above.

    Confirmed the two seats for Peggy Yap and Arthur Yap as shown.

    Tks.

  174. If there is one requirement which we need for the cabaret night, and which we did not have at hand yesterday, and that is the photographer and the videographer. For such an event, every body wants to enjoy and not work. I thought I had to do the shooting of the pictures.

    Well, some members came up with an offer to help. They too want to enjoy and not work. So, on Sat night, we will see two young photographers. I am sure we will have some nice portrait and body shots, and also a nice video of the video.

    Thank you to the members who offer the photo and video services this last minute.

    Terence Seah

  175. Hi Janie

    Sue informed me that Bernard Chan has messaged her that he will not be attending the cabaret night on Saturday.

    I’ve deleted his name accordingly.

  176. Hi SHC members

  177. Hi everyone,

    Just a gentle reminder to bring along your name tag if you have one. If not, we’ll give you a sticker with your name written on it.

    Thank you.

  178. HI Daniel,
    Very nice of you. Beautiful song. And a real surprise.

    For our Taipei guests tonight, please note we have two young photographers coming. One is Sebastian and the other is Boaz. Let’s thank them for contributing to the event’s excitement.

    I am looking for nice portraits and full head to toe sots. Please do ask them if you wish to have a shot. Bigg smile and eyes into the camera.

    See you tonight. Bring your name tags.

    Terence Seah

  179. Nice meeting you SEBASTIAN (mwah mwah) n BOAZ!!!

    Boring Terence, you WERE the only ONE to have your frigging name tag, as if you were non-existent or rather, as if NO ONE IN THIS FRIGGING WORLD TO KNOW OF YOUR EXISTENCE!! Perhaps for whoever to know of your existence?? Poor darling. WHATEVERRRRRRR!!!!

    Anyways, I had a blast WITHOUT my FRIGGGING name tag, whatever that means……………a reeli reeeli pleasant happening to this old cow.

    Thank you to all who organized this (except Terence who still has his finger up his ass), sooooo happy to meet old and new frens and Pearl, still waiting for you………..- don’t count on you-know-who (eyes rolling).

    Gosh, so happy Lai Fong (mwah mwah) reeli reeli was THERE and TS who…….let’s not go there……..

    I am glad I was the substitute (yet to pay, kekekekekeeee, BL, please don’t charge me interest).

    Janet, both TS and I reeli reeli appreciate your being there. Thumbs up!!! Luv you!

    Linda, I am soooo impressed by your mcee skills! Another thumbs up. Go girl!!

    Seriously, I had more than I wished for.

    Christina (walk group), nice meeting you again and I hope you will welcome me in your future walks.

    Yes, SS, I am happy to see you again and reeli happy to have one dance with you!

    Frisna, boy, I was sooooo impressed with your mamasan acting and I would want you to join me should I ever have a niteclub.

  180. Hi everyone,

    Cabaret Night has come and gone. Hope all of you had an enjoyable time last night. A big Thank You to everyone for your support. All of you have contributed in one way or another to the success of the Cabaret Night.

    Thank you Stage Mgr Pat and your co-Mgr, Linda. You did an awesome job for bringing the Taipei Cabaret to life with your vibrancy, gift of the gab plus your ‘naughty’ sense of humour. One can’t ask for more!

    Of course, Jeff Gan ~ you did an excellent job on the keyboard. I don’t think it’s an easy task to put through so many songs with your one-man show. Hip, hip, hurray!

    Our DJ, photographers Sebastian and Boaz and our videographer, Boon Liang – well done guys.

    The singers have sung very well indeed ~ so professional ~ and kept us a-dancing all night long.

    Yes, of course the Drama team – Well done and keep up the good work!

    Also thanks to June, Myra and Theresa who helped at the Registration Desk.

    Of course, the Guests ~ Without you, there will be no party right?

    Thank you Terence for giving me this opportunity to learn new skills eh? I’ve really learnt loads through this experience. This wouldn’t have been possible if not for your kind invitation in roping me in. Really appreciated.

    Last, but not least, I would like to apologise for any shortcomings or unintentionally offending anyone through my lack of experience in handling such an event. Please accept my apologies for this is my VIRGIN project.

    Let me end with the following quotes:

    1. Choose to be happy
    2. Don’t forget to play
    3. We do not stop playing because we grow old, we grow old because we
    stop playing.

    Cheers and Warmest regards to everyone!

    1. Hi Gabriella and fellow guests of the Taipei Cabaret night,

      Gabriella has summed up alot of what I wanted to say. Thank you. In short, I would like to say every lady looked as pretty as 30-40 years ago, and every man as virile and handsome 40 – 50 years ago. Both guests, singers, the drama team and the committee participated activitively and with full of dedication. Thank you for making the event so entertaining and successful. Personally, I am glad to see our members getting to know one another better. This is exactly the club’s objective.

      I had another task that night, and that was to spot talents. Lai Fong was qa great singer, entertainer and dancer. Frisna, I was impressed by your equal half Peter. Where have you been hiding him?

      I am getting to know Jeff Gan, our live musician better. Leading to the night and on the night itself, he has been patient, creative and a skilled musician. I shall be considering using more of his services.

      Quiet and playful, and keeping a record of the night, I noticed Boon Liang. He volunteer as a videogapher,, even though is equipment went upside down. Had to borrow just for the night without my asking. BL has always been supportive of SHC, and we appreciate his good intentions.

      And to the two young boys Sebastian and Boaz, thanks to the contributtion from Lai Fong and Susan Tan.

      I have got so many things I want to say, but slowly, let me catch my breathe.

      Karen, where were you? I missed your presence last night. I am gladd to see that most on Table 1 turn up looking beautiful, handsome and enjoying the chatting.

      And, as for Geraldine, not that I am encouraging you, but I do note yourr comments. I wish you are as sweeet in your words, as you were during the evening.

      A bit of insight into next years’s Cabaret night. We shall be launching the opening of “Sawatdi Sabaidee”, one of the largest Thai discos in Bangkok. Typically, a Thai disco has only round high tables. The drinks are on the table. No food. Guys and Gals, dance around the table. Generally, there is no sitting,and if there are, they will be high stools.

      Thai Disco is likely to be 1 to 1.5 hours only, all thai music, great for dancing. All other times, it will be non-Thai music.

      That’s all for now.

  181. THE party is over. Back to the classroom. It is lesson time again.
    Have fun with English.
    What do a bitch and a witch have in common?
    They both have an itch that will never ever go away.
    And use both hands if you have to type – putting a finger there certainly will not take away the itch.
