SeniorsAloud events to go online

Rather than keep postponing events or waiting indefinitely till Covid-19 SOPs are eased, we have decided to join the bandwagon and go online for our next events. We held our first Zoom talk on 20 Nov. We did not expect the response to be so overwhelming that we had to close registration, as well as the waiting list. So don't wait till the last minute to register as there is a limit to the number of participants at a Zoom session.

SeniorsAloud will be organising two online events in December.


We have been a supporter of Pitstop and their free meal distribution since 2017. We salute founders, Joyce and Andrea, for their resourcefulness and tenacity in never giving up on feeding the hungry and homeless living on the city streets. The cafe is next to the former Bangkok Bank. SA team members Kamil and Choke Ling are volunteers at Pitstop cafe. For the talk on Pitstop, please register at this link. Thanks.

If you have bought our SeniorsAloud calendar 2020, or follow our facebook, you will recognise Mrs Jagjeet as our inspiring senior for November. She has made full use of the stay-home period during Covid-19 to come up with her first self-published book. All done in two months. Amazing! If you want to reach 80 looking fit, healthy and gorgeous like Mrs J, attend her talk where she will share her secrets of looking and feeling great. To register for Mrs Jagjeet's talk, fill in the form here: https://bit.ly/3o9Yvyz

The Zoom link both each of the above events will be sent to all who have registered successfully.

Past Event


Postponed events

It is looking very much like a year that didn't quite happen. Several of our scheduled events had to be either postponed or cancelled. 


We were looking forward to the above biggie at KLCC as we had been allocated a booth at the first AGExpo. Alas, it had to be postponed because of the MCO and EMCO.


The hike was originally scheduled for 7 April, but postponed due to the same reason. Subsequently when the situation improved, we decided to hold it on 7 Oct. Then the third wave of the pandemic struck. We had no choice but to postpone it for the second time. Sigh.
The above event had to be put on hold for the same reason. It was to celebrate International Day of Older Persons 2020.

On the bright side, we were able to carry out some events during the early months of 2020 before the pandemic wreaked havoc for event organisers.

2020 Past Events 


SeniorsAloud got off to a roaring start with the launch of our 2020 Calendar featuring inspiring seniors as role models of active, healthy living. Fortunately, we were able to sell most of the calendars before MCO started, thanks to the team, members and friends who sold for us or bought from us. From the proceeds we were able to contribute toward the purchase of 70 new mattresses and pillows for abandoned elderly at Tong Sim Senior Citizens Care Centre. 


SeniorsAloud did a full photo session for The Star for a series of articles that were published in early January 2020.  We were glad to help raise awareness of issues involving senior citizens.


30 SeniorsAloud members had an enjoyable and entertaining evening at the Kebub-Kebun Bangsar Concert at Menara Ken, TTDI on 5 January 2020, thanks to Irene Qi Fang for the invitation. 


On 11 January 2020, we visited Aurel Sanctuary at their invitation. It is an exclusive retirement resort that is currently being developed in Bukit Tinggi. We were very impressed with the facilities and the hospitality shown to our group. We also listened to a talk by Dr Rajbans Singh on healthy ageing.
