Senior Friendship Circle

From what I understand, from the notice board at my place, there's Senior Friendship Circle at my Constituency on every 3rd Sunday of the Month.  But my mum didn't attend.  It so happen, last Friday evening, I went to my neighbourhood park for my weekly workout organize by the RC.  My mum wanted to go and have a walk.  After the workout, the RC Chairman, who happen to be there, came and chit with my mum.  He invite her over to the Senior Friendship Circle last Sun, usually they will have it at 8am on Sun.  It so happen last Sun, they have event going on in the morning, so the Senior Friendship Circle was change to 12 noon.  And ask me to bring my mum there.


(1) I brought my mum there last Sun, they have 2 ladies from National University Hospital to come and talk on Hearing Loss.  Didn't know that they have the talk, so I didn't bring any paper or notebook to note down on the symptoms of Hearing Loss.

Based on my memory, they mention if someone calls you from behind, you can't hear till the person have to pat you, one of the symptom.  If you on the volume of the television, radio, so loud till your grandchild said that it's too loud, another symptom. The rest of the symptom, return what I have heard to the speakers.


(2) They also ask if any person is interested in the above hearing testing and only 9 slots left.



(3) Then lunch is served, which is nasi lemak


(4) Fruit will be banana


(5) Someone sponsor Tuna, and each senior gets a can of it

They also celebrate February seniors birthday with a cake, I didn't manage to take picture of the cake as it so happen my mum finish her nasi lemak, I have to help her with the clearing of the plate.

  1. Who pays for everything? Sponsors? Generous donors? That is very nice, caring for the elderly. Would be nice if they have volunteers to help take care of the really very old ones - I sure would need some help right now.

  3. I salute Singapore for having the most activities for the senior citizens. Not many countries are so caring and efficient on this concept. I had seen that different areas have their own community services in Singapore. Kudos.

  5. The nasi lemak looked so dry without much sambal or curry as gravy. Anyway, I won't complain any free food.
