SHC ukelele group

There are a number of Ukelele groups. To serve beginners as well as members wanting to share and playing different languages and dialects, we have allocated Monday 8pm over zoom for 4 weeks.

Due to the nature of zoom and the internet, this group will focus on solo playing.

This group is for members who has already a Ukelele and has started playing the instrument.

The EO for this program is Jasmine Wong.

After 4 weeks, we can decide how to proceed further.

To participate, join on zoom on Monday 8pm 1hour. Whatsapp ZOOM LINK on your mobile or desktop.

Invitation to Book Launch on Saturday 1st July, 12.00 to 4.00 pm

I am launching my book, Ninety9 Reasons Why Cats Make Purrfect Pets – A Voice For Voiceless Stray Cats

DATE     :  SATURDAY 1st July 2023

TIME      :  12.00 to 4.00 pm

VENUE  :  #02-31/32 Thomson Plaza (shop across from KFC) 

You are all invited to this event. 

Besides giving me support :-) there is a cat talk, “Recipe For a Happy Cat” by a Cat Behaviorist Specialist, craft activities for childrendécor items for sale, and an auction of a cat house…all activities aim to raise funds for different cat welfare groups.

Admission to the launch is free! You only spend when you buy a book, décor items, or even bid for the cat house – all in support of cat rescuers’ work.

This is an open event, so do feel free to invite your family, bring your grandchildren for the craft activities, bring your friends who love cats or are cat curious. 

If you have not been to a book launch, this is a wonderful opportunity! Never too old to experience something new and different! I have not met any of you yet so will be very glad to see you there! 

After visiting the book launch, you may like to proceed to the Kentucky Fried Chicken right across, steps away from the launch venue…to spend more time to catch up over a snack or drink (expenses on yourself.)

Event Cordinator for EC events

In the early days of SHC, we had EC events. As we move on with the club, we still require all SHC events to be EO events only.

However this requirement has become not practical for many events.

Today, SHC Admin, Dolly Lim, also a pioneer since 2005, proposed allowing for EC events . I shall review this and revert with a position in a weeks time.

1. SHC EO events can only be participated by Ordinary members.

2. EC events are organised by members, and partially participated by friends of members.

3. , SHC members, ECs, may publish their photos or videos in SHC Forum or Facebook.

Only mames, groups and photos of Ordinary members can be published in the forum.

4. We will not support anti SHC activities..

5. In doubt, consult the SHC admin Dolly Lim or Sally. Foo or myself.

For SHC Facement, approval can be given by Facebook admin Jean Lim. Facebook is more free for EC events

Surviving SpinalAVM in Singapore!

Growing up in sunny Singapore in the Katong School by the Sea, I’m a free-spirited Patrician born in the post independence era. Life’s been pretty good to me despite the usual twists & turns for most part in the first 54 years of my existence.

After returning from Cambodia, my last teaching stint in SCIA as a pioneering Gr 1-9 faculty, I started experiencing difficulty in my bladder & bowel; & walking became a laborious task even as I strive to work in HopeHouse with the De Lasalle Brothers of St Patrick’s Community where I was nurtured.

It was a scary, dark phase and it did occur to me to make my alma mater my resting ground. Yet the love for my family & friends kept me going. In early Feb 2020, I lost all confidence in walking safely and sought out my eldest to bring me for a lumbar x-ray ordered by my endocrinologist.

I am fortunate he was in office early and I got to see him. Thus began my metamorphosis into a SpinalAVM Warrior @55, joining a 1% in the world with this very rare genetic and crippling condition.

A battery of major medical tests culminated in a T4-7 opened surgery to dissect 3 AVMs out. Took 20 months of physiotherapy amidst channeling on the Healthcare Conveyor belt of SGH (5weeks), OCH (5weeks) & a Chinatown Care Home (2.5 years) before I was discharged in untidy manner home with my walker, wheelies and my scooter!

It was a major psychological, physical & financial battle (on-going), to reintegrate back into the Land of the Living, after a 3 year absence from family, Church and society in Kg Glam where we’ve resided for 33 years!

Sheer grit, silent contemplations & patient love became my mainstay even as I continue to be stronger & better with the help of pain meds, mindfulness methods, acupuncture, continued rehab twice weekly and even weekly chiropractic treatment session, managing family, mobility, bladder & bowel as well as chronic fibromyalgia issues.

The alternative option would have been an easy return to a nursing home, have assisted living and fade away. Such is not for me! I have much to do, to surmount the living environment for wheelies, to regain respect & dignity even as a PwD and live life meaningfully with dreams of travel, a SpinalAVM Foundation to assist fellow warriors & their families to alleviate life’s pains a little and live to a 100! I’m on my way!

Eulogy for a Friend – A tribute to Ms Susan Tan

OBITUARY – Mdm Susan Tan Chwee Huay

Today, I want to share with you a very personal and emotional story. It’s about Susan Tan, who was my friend and committee member for Batam D&D many years ago. She passed away early this wee morning after suffering a stroke during a trip to Ipoh in September 2022. She was in her golden years.

Susan and I met when we were both part of the committee for the Batam annual dinner trip in 2018. We had to organize everything from the venue, the food, the entertainment, and the transportation. It was a lot of work, but we managed to pull it off. Susan, a very outspoken friend never shy to voice out her opinion. She was always ready to try new things and learn from her mistakes. She at times, a troublemaker who created havoc for others, but that is her, with a great sense of humor and a big heart.

Susan loved her family very much, they are her pride and joy. She would show me pictures of them and tell me stories about their achievements and adventures. She was indeed a devoted mother who wanted the best for them. An image she inculcate in her shows her strong responsibilities as a parent.

I used not to like Susan’s way for being so outspoken. Sometimes, she would say things that hurt my feelings or made me angry. But I also admired her for being direct, honest and courageous. She never a boastful person unless she wanted to make a joke. She was a fighter in life, who faced many challenges and obstacles with determination and resilience. I saw her cooking workshop in zoom – very karang and skillful to complete the event. Bravo for her GungHo attitude.

When I heard that Susan had a stroke, I was devastated with immediate rosary miracle prayer for her. I couldn’t believe that someone so full of life and energy could be struck down so suddenly. She managed to survive the stroke and was transferred to a nursing home, but was never fully recovered. She passed away peacefully in her sleep.

Now, I miss Susan with images floating in my memories of her. She was my dearest big sister, who taught me many things and supported me through thick and thin regarding SilverHairsClub. I know now she is resting at God’s side, and I hope she is happy and free from pain. I will always look upon the stars whenever I miss her.

Thank you for reading this eulogy for Susan Tan. She was a wonderful person who touched many lives. If you knew her, please share your memories of her in the comments below. And if you didn’t know her, please send your prayers and condolences to her family and friends.

PS : I usually don’t do eulogy on public but she – my only big sister.
