Zonal Meeting @ NEX – 28 December 2020

Our 4th Hangout at Food Junction – NEX with EO Melissa Khng assisted by ChanKN [from 11:30am to 03:00pm].

Our darling, EO Melissa, was there at 10:45am, putting bag, water bottles to chop 3 section of 6-pax seating arrangement to ensure that all members can be seated comfortably upon their arrival.  But, regret to say that at times, situation just not in our favour, so, very unreluctantly, we finally decided to say bye bye to 1 section as the lunch crowds kept increasing and every eyes were staring at our sides liao… paiseh lah!

At strike of 12.15pm, members were seen coming towards us with Melissa busy allocating seats for them since there was only 9 seats reserved instead of the original 15.  Then came a member with shiny armour (Bobby Bok) had graciously offered to buy each and every member a drink.  Sue Chan and Lina Ng were also sharp enough to spot on another table near to us to make the group complete in 1 corner.  It was indeed a show of cooperation among these members to ensure a safe distancing.

What happened next – Aiyo!!!  Of cos, chatting, networking and taking of photos lah.. and not forgetting our lunches too.  It was indeed an afternoon well spent.  Till we meet again…

Cheers!

Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum

Where were we on Christmas Eve?

We (Chan Keng Ngee, Katherine, Laura Wee, Jasmine Wong, Sandra Chuah, Lydia Chin, Annie Seah and me la) spent our morning touring Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum at the Kent Ridge Campus of the National University of Singapore.  Officially opened on 18 April 2015.

The Museum currently has more than 560,000 catalogued lots in its collection and over a million specimens from throughout the region and about 2000 of these are exhibited in the museum’s galleries.

Everyone had a wonderful time walking thru these history memory lanes and also busy taking photographs to showcase too…

We initially scheduled to leave around 12 noon for our lunch but was delayed till 2pm as there were more to cover but time was not at our side as we can heard our stomach crying for food liao.

Eateries around NUS were either not opened to public or too much R&R to follow so we finally landed in Alexandra Village for our lunch.

Many thanks to ChanKN for making this trip possible as he got discounted lobang for entrance tickets.  Till the next outing…

Cheers!
Dolly Lim

Invitations to investment, property and MLM seminars are not allowed in SHC activities

Dear members,

Sometimes, chat-group members are invited to special seminars. However, some seminars put pressure on the guests to buy investment products. Other invitations serve as phone number collections.

WhatsApp group chats are set up for sharing important issues among SHC members.

For members in the investing business, pls seek admin approval. If the intention is to sell investment products, I require this intention to be made clear and upfront to members.

MLM and property seminars and related advertising are not allowed to be mentioned or conducted in all club activities.

Face to face seminars can also be conducted over SHC Zoom, at no charge.

Kindly observe this announcement. Thank you.

SHC Treasure Hunt – Saturday, 28 November 2020

Our very first physical race on a lovely Saturday.  In total, we have 4 Teams of 4 participants each – namely, AJIV, WATERMELON, BANANA and KIWI – a combination of male and females.

This activity was created to encourage walking as a form of exercise cum teambuilding – as we see quite a number of energetic and enthusiastic members doing such walk on a regular basis.

Feeling energetic is a key to happiness and studies do show that you will feel much better not only about yourself but when you feel exhausted, overwhelmed and blue – a completed task DONE will probably gives you the sensation of relief.

Treasure Hunt is a game organized by Terence who prepares a list of 10 images taken at Marina Barrage.  Being a tracker myself, upon arrival on site, these images will be forwarded to the respective Team Leader to start their Hunting Race – the goal is to be the first team to complete the list.  Players take photographs of the listed items and post it back to me.  In return, I will take note of each treasure found and recorded the timing from my mobile and compile it to get the total time taken to complete their task.

Feedback from the Hunt Racers – fun with laughter and engaging as a team but sweaty and tiresome.  At the end of the race, some continued to enjoy the serenity of Marina Barrage with kite flying and thereafter a wholesome dinner – isn’t that what we call ??…

The HUNT has been set for 3 days and we still have up to Monday to complete the race and result will be announced on Tuesday noon, 01 December 2020.

Conversational Cooking – “All you need to know about BEEF”, 26 November 2020 @ 10:30am

Video presentation is ready for viewing….

Slow-roasted Whole Steamship Round

TOPIC Discussion

1. Presentation on How to choose the PERFECT Cut of BEEF

FUNDAMENTAL KNOWLEDGE & SKILLS

  1. Common breed of Beef Cattle
  2. Explain on Inspection vs Grading
  3. Different types of Cattle Feed
  4. Identify Beef Cuts
  • Difference between Porterhouse Steak vs T-Bone Steak – both have the best of both world which is the tenderloin and the sirloin

Porterhouse Steaks – cut from the rear end of the short loin, contain a bigger section of tenderloin along with a large strip steak

T-bone Steaks – cut closer to the front, contain a smaller section of tenderloin

2. BASIC BEEF TERMINOLOGY

  • Marbling – refers to the white specks of intramuscular fat in each meat cut, it adds great flavour and can be an indicator of how good the beef is.  Cattle raised on grain will have more marbling than grass-fed.
  • Three types of Beef Grading in USA

Prime – highest quality, features beautiful red meat laced with thin pattern of white fat. This type of beef on the market makes up only 2-3% of available consumable beef – most expensive cuts

Choice – high quality, widely available beef (top 54% quality), but has less marbling than Prime. Choice roasts and steaks from the loin and rib will be very tender, juicy, and flavorful and are suited for dry-heat cooking

Select – is very uniform in quality and normally leaner than the higher grade. It will lack in flavour coz less marbling.

Certified Angus Beef (CAB) – Cattle have consistent, high quality beef with superior taste. Do not confused Angus Beef with CAB (cannot be legally used by an establishment that is not licensed to do so.

  • Wagyu – simply means Japanese Cow, there are 4 breeds native to Japan. One of the breeds is genetically unique – it has this crazy marbling of fat on inside of muscle tissue – so integrated within the muscle.
  • Kobe – specific product from a specific place, cattle are hand-fed using high-energy feed including beer and beer mash, to ensure tenderness and high fat content. Also hand-massage to reduce stress.
  • Grass-Fed – cattle raised exclusively on forage.
  • Grain-Fed – cattle raised primarily on forage but “finished” in a feedlot with grains to fatten them.
  • Organic – cattle raised without added hormones, pesticides or other chemicals
  • Antibiotic-Free – animals were not given antibiotics in their feed, in their water, or by injection.

3. RECIPES – using

4. FAQ

  • Do you have a lot of cooking equipment? How often do you use it all? Do you have any pieces of equipment that you rarely ever use?

ANSWER – some loves cooking and never fail to purchase the best equipment to make the cooking journey more pleasurable. Some after a while due to age catching up or hardly cook, left their well-equipped pots n pans as white elephant.

So do dig up your storeroom or kitchen cabinet and drag them all out to give them a new lease of life.

Conversational Cooking – “The Ultimate Guide to Pork Cuts” – EO Sally Foo – 12 Nov 2020

Thank you all for the support…
Video presentation showcase – All you need to know about PORK – The Ultimate Guide to Pork Cuts – shared amongst our SHC participants.

TOPIC DISCUSSION of the Day
1. In many Cultures, women cook more than men. Why? Who did most of the cooking when you were growing up?
– Most of the participants’ feedback is WOMEN, remembering those were the days in the 60s where home kitchen is Mom’s territory – Dad goes to work while Mom stays home to raise the children and keep the house.
– A couple of participants mentioned hubby n brother, these ladies are the fortunate ones who do not have to wreck their brains but just savour instead.
– For me, professional kitchens still male dominated and women are doing such amazing stuff still fighting to get recognized in the culinary industry.

2. Recipe Sharing, all pork related…

“SHC Gossips” every Fri during Late Birds. EO: Sue Chan on SHC Zoom

Late Birds is a late night program, especially for SHC members who cannot sleep early. Held every Fri at 9.30 pm, 1 hour only.

There are many gossips among members in the Club. While some members are affected by gossips, it is clear that gossips are impossible to stop. In fact, any attempts to stop or deny gossips have failed. Gossips have for generations, become a favourite past time during lunches, walks, tea breaks and now Whatsapp.

Gossips are not just many women’s strong points. Men also enjoy gossips too. Not just among ordinary seniors like us, but also in royal, government, business, political and entertainment circles.

Some gossips are rumours. Others are fake news, while some are true but unproven. I had thought over whether to have a regular session on SHC Gossips. Some do feel that having a gossip session only makes the gossips worse. Most times, members being gossiped get to hear the gossips after hearing from 3rd parties, and unable to give their versions of the gossip.

EO Sue Chan will moderate this session. I dont know how and where this session will lead to, but do feel free to participate, every Fri 9.30 pm.

This is our 1st walk for 2020 :D :D :D

We chose this route to walk less within the Park!

Let’s stroll upstream along the river banks; see water ripples
swirling through natural rocks, waters that glisten in the sun;
provides an exceedingly soothing and therapeutic peace to the mind.

An initiative by PUB was launched in 2006 to transform our waterways into
beautiful streams with natural materials, waterscapes; creating spaces for
the community to enjoy and increase biodiversity.

Bishan-AMK park was one of the flagship projects under this transformation programme between PUB and NParks.

The park which is located in urban central Singapore was transformed from a concrete canal to having a natural “Kallang River” flowing into and
through the park, an immense project never done before.

The park now with lush greenery, grassy lawns, playgrounds, ponds, are all
ideal for family picnics and gatherings; fitness enthusiasts cycle or pant
along well-maintained tracks.

The walk leaving us tired and hungry will culminate for dinner at AMK Hub.

Note:
No or limited shelters, good to have your brollies with you.
Water to hydrate on a hot day.
Need energy, bring along a snack.
To breeze along, lighten your load.

MONTHLY WALKS 2020 UPDATE-2
Posted on August 25, 2020 by ChristinA Chan (Walking group leader)

THIS is NOT a registration post for a walk.
A separate post will be posted in due time as usual.

For reference, we have had ceased our monthly walks since the month
of July 2020 due to the spike of COVID-19.

All of us are aware, there could be still asymptomatics around.

Hence, at this stage, we are unable to comment if we will resume
our monthly walks on a regular basis.

However, I am keen to have a walk for the month of September 2020.

I would like to highlight SOME guidelines as follows:
(More might be added as & when necessary).

1) we shall ADHERE STRICTLY with the guidelines set by relevant
authorities ie., face mask, safe distancing are required, X numbers
allowed at any one time. If one comes with a face shield, you must
also wear a face mask.

It will be good if you would check your temperature before
setting out to our meeting place for said walk(s); should you do not
feel well, kindly stay home.

2) For now, the walk will be in groups of 5s; should not mingle with
another group during the entire walk.

3) Anyone who do not, will not follow required guidelines, kindly do
not attend our walks; else you will still be told to leave at once!

4) Should anyone be reprimanded / caught by representative of
authorized authority and/or penalties monetary or otherwise, this
person shall personally be responsible!

5) I and my walk team reserves the right to decision(s) make/formed
by us for our walks.

Positive feedbacks are welcomed :D

ps: Walkists, if possible drop me an email or WhatsApps with your
mobile contacts (my apology, I had misplaced participants’s contacts
esp the newer or once a blue moon :0)

Trust ALL remain healthy and exercise Wisdom!
Thanks!
