Live Well and Be Happy

  • Autumn is a colourful and vibrant season

    AutumnLife is about like-minded people in their autumn years coming together to live vibrant
    and meaningful lives by sharing experiences, exploring new ventures and self-expressing their new found selves. We are a very special community.

  • Explore

    A space for infotainment. Members can contribute interesting and relevant information that explores lifestyle activities, travels, health and wellness, and anything entertaining.

  • Create

    Start a new chapter in life. Write, draw, paint or make something with your hands – let your spirit flow, let your heart yearn.
    Imagination is ageless and dreams live on. Here is where it begins.

  • Give

    We have amassed a great deal of knowledge, experience and wisdom to put us in good stead to give back to society. Let’s start to pay it forward.

Dear friends,

Hope you are keeping well. We took a long hiatus since early 2018. Sorry about that. It has been hard to run actively with limited resources - be it time, funds or human resource. We are trying our best to keep this community alive even though less actively for now. Please do stick with us.

Before you know it, we are already past mid 2019. Guess we have been kept rather busy to let time slip by. Well, hopefully, our next Chit-Chat session in August will bring a little excitement to you. In May this year, four over-50 ladies embarked on a 15-day continuous walk (and climb) of the Camino de Santiago; trekking an average of 23 kilometers daily for 15 days to reach the beautiful historic city of Santiago de Compostela in Spain.

We are pleased to have these ladies to come and share their stories of the Camino with us. The Camino experience is not just a physical challenge, a mental endurance, it can be a life changing encounter for some. Come and join us for a chit-chat and you might just decide to add the Camino to your bucket list after that.

Register now for this Chit-Chat session. There are limited seats. You may go to the Events tab above or click on the Chit-Chat registration below.

See you soon.

Are you into long nature walks and trekking?

Have you heard of Camino de Santiago in Spain? The Camino is known in English as the Way of St James. In the early centuries, mainly pilgrims walked the Camino. However, in recent years, people from all walks of life have come to walk the Camino. As recorded, more than 200,000 people from all over the world walk it every year. This May, four over-50 ladies from Singapore have completed a 15-day continuous walk of the Camino. Come and hear them share their stories over a nice afternoon cuppa. 

Date: 28 August 2019

Time: 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm

Venue: To be confirmed

Registration: For members only. Please sign-in then register online at Events above. Seats are limited to 20 on a first-come-first-served basis.

Closing date for registration: 15 August 2019

As usual for such events, we do not charge a fee but participants will buy their own drinks and/or food at the venue.

 

Our Chit-Chat@AutumnLife is usually at a selected cafe where the ambiance is casual and relaxing to facilitate a good chit chat over a cup of coffee or tea. The event is free for members. Members will pay for their own drinks and food at the venue. This is a member only event.

Members who wish to suggest and lead a topic for our next chit-chat, please drop a note to founders@autumnlife.sg.

According to the World Health Organisation publication World Health Statistics 2015, life expectancy of Singaporeans stands at 83 years for both men and women. This puts us in second place after Japan, where life expectancy is at 84 years. Imagine how many more years we still have to go if, for whatever reasons, you retire at 50, 55 or 60. Living active, meaningful and happy lives after 50 is certainly a very good option. Don’t you think so?

AutumnLife is a platform created by the community for the community. This community is us who have spent our first fifty years busy living. Whatever that may mean to you, we have come through it and made the necessary contributions to our families and the society. Today, we owed it to ourselves to live a more colourful and joyful life in the years ahead.

Together, we can explore new frontiers – new interests, hobbies, skills, places, eats, wellness and beauty. We can create – recreate ourselves through various self-expressions, be it the arts, music, technology and literary ventures. We are also well poised to give back to society in various ways – pick a cause to support the way we choose to, group volunteering with a difference, and pay it forward as we wish to.

That’s how our autumn life should be.
