Trip to UK London

Here are some photographs for the trip to London. It was pretty enjoyable trip since we got to try some nice meals and sightseeing along the way. As compared with Singapore, this place is really huge and we couldn’t cover all the places in London since most of the travelling time was quite long. Anyway, we managed to cover for places we wanted to go and so it was very pleasant indeed.

That’s all for our article today. We will write more and show more photographs another day. Hope you have enjoyed viewing these photographs and do share your comments if you had been to London before. We love to hear from you.

Side note:

Our country is having election on 10 July 2020 and we sincerely hope that the people of Singapore will vote wisely as who they want to guide us into the future. We must endorse a good & strong Government to help the people of Singapore into the journey of prosperity and harmony. Being the older generation, we had enjoyed very much for what our Government have been doing all these years since Independent. Now we wish that our younger generations will have the good eyesight of making the right choice and giving a strong mandate for the Government to continue working for the people of Singapore.

We do understand that some may be influenced by emotions but that should not be the decision one should be making. We have to think seriously as how the candidates we are voting to have future plans and guiding us towards a new & better future. This is not a rosy sit for those who are willing to devote themselves to serve the people of Singapore. It is a tough job as they have to do a lot of planning in advance and with good strategy as how our country can develop. But at times we may witness some projects that might fail as no one can guarantee the success. Nevertheless if the project had gone through some stringent checks and still fail then one should learn from it to advance further without making the same mistake. We have to understand that Government are still humans like us and comes to venture, it goes either way of winning or losing.

We need to vote for a Government who are willing to lead us with plans and solutions to help the people of Singapore. Listen closely to what they talk about and what they are willing to commit for the people of Singapore. One should not get too emotional about ‘dirt’ or rumor that is unfounded. Even if one had made mistake in the past, it does not mean they cannot do the right thing. It is about now and how it can help the people of Singapore to move ahead into the future. Vote with a clear mind as we certainly need a good & strong Government to guide the people of Singapore.

Situation of COVID-19 is still dangerous as we still have some unknown sources among the community. We need to have a much better solution to do contact tracing and fortunately our Government has recommended a device which utilize bluetooth connection to do the contact tracing. This is indeed a very good initiative taken by our Government to distribute this device to everyone in Singapore. As we do understand that the current TraceTogether app are having limited subscribers due to some issues of iPhone’s connectivity as well as older generations may not be carrying smartphone. So coming up with the device is indeed a good initiative by our Government as to help with better contact tracing in Singapore.

Please do continue to be a little Kiasu & Kiasi like wearing masks & do social distancing when in public. Also do remember to wash your hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth since it will be the entry point for the virus into your body. Help yourself as you can help others to avoid getting this infection.

Be blessed with good health and take care of yourself & loved ones.

Exploratorium experience in USA

It was another great day to go for ad adventure to explore the Exploratorium in USA. This was our first time to visit this place and we were all getting excited about it. We were wondering what to expect and what we could see from this place as it was a place to show the works of innovators.

Entry to exploratorium

A different kind of dizzy
Changing the postion of your head affects your feeling of dizziness.

  • Sit in the chair, lay your head on the bar, and spin. If you spin long enough the feeling of motion will lessen. This happens when the fluid in your inner ear syncs with your head’s motion.
  • Now look up. Do you feel a sense of dizziness or tumbling? This happens when your inner ear responds to your head movement.

What’s going on?

Inside your inner ear are semicircular canals that maintain your sense of balance. These canals are filled with fluid and tiny hairs. Your brain senses motion as the fluid moves the hairs.

Make the effect stronger by:

  • Sitting up with your eyes closes.
  • Laying your head down with your ear pressed to the bar.

Your inner ear’s semicircular canals have three different orientations to let you sense movement in many directions.

Color your judgment
Your expectations may change your experience.

  • These 10 bottles contain 5 different scents. Sniff each one and try to find the scents that match.
  • Lift the flap in the center to find out which ones match and see what the different scents are.

What’s going on?

We are used to having smells go with certain colors: sweet things have fruity colors like yellow, red or orange; herbal scents are green; earthy scents are brown.

The scents here that have “inappropriate” colors are harder to identify than ones with the color you expect. And when smell matches color, you may find the scent stronger and more pleasant.

That’s all for today as there are many more photographs of this place and we will continue again another day. Hope you have enjoyed viewing these photographs and if you had been to Exploratorium in California USA, please do share your comments with us about what you think of this place.

Side Note:

Sadly to hear that as of today 18 June 2020, the infection rates had gone up to 8,400,129 cases while the death rates are now 451,263 cases. As we can see that there is no stopping of increment for the infections as well as the death rates worldwide and the only way to reduce the spreading will be people doing the right thing.

What is the right thing to do?

Simple! Just isolate or quarantine yourself to stay at home whenever possible. If needed to be in public, please do wear masks & do social distancing from others in order to avoid the spread of virus in case some people who are asymptomatic who will be the unknown sources. Also at the same time, please remember to wash your hands with soap frequently and especially before you touch your eyes, nose or mouth where the infection gets into your body. With extra care and precautions taken, you can help to prevent further spreading of this virus. Help yourself as you can help others to avoid transmission of virus. A good deed goes a long way in your life.

As we understand that in Singapore, our Government had announced the second phase of easing the restrictions as to allow more businesses and schools to be reopened. Please read this information from the site: Gov.sg and know what to do during the Phase 2 period. As we like to advice for those who can be working from home, should continue to do so as it helps to prevent spreading of this virus. As we do realize that there are still unknown sources from people who had not been tested but are carrying the infections, it will be best that we avoid being in public as far as possible. If no choice but needed to be in public, then please do take measures like wearing masks & do social distancing from others will actually provide a way of avoiding to be infected. This means everyone should compliant to this measure so it can be effective to eliminate human to human transmission. Other than that, one should also be washing hands with soap frequently and especially before touching your eyes, nose or mouth since it is the entry point of infection. As long as we humans take all these necessary precautions, we sincerely believe that it will help further reduction of spreading.

Let’s do our parts and keep all Singaporeans as well as others to be safe!

As we read about news informing us the latest updates of COVID-19 pandemic, we can see that different countries have their own contingency plan to handle the COVID-19 pandemic. Some countries are doing well with the control while others are not but no matter what are the measures put in place, we ourselves should take the task of keeping ourselves safe with our own precautions like wearing masks & social distancing as well as washing hands with soap frequently. These are the basic needs that can help to avoid further spreading! We have to cooperate with all others who are doing the right things to carry out the basic preventive measures. We definitely need to help ourselves so that we can help others to prevent the spread. It is a good deed that everyone should abide to these rules.

It’s as simple as ABC! But requires the cooperation of every single human in the world to reduce further spread of COVID-19. Can we do it? Not as simple as it sounds since we will definitely encounter resistance from some people in the world as they simply want to defy these measures for God knows what reasons they have in mind. Looking at the bright side, we sincerely hope that one day they decide to abide with the preventive measures and soon we will see the drop in numbers for infections. We can only hope to see that day to come …

Lastly, we like to end this with the standard precautions that each of us can undertake to reduce the possibility of further spreading.

  1. Wearing masks whenever you are in public as a preventive measures.
  2. Washing hands with soap frequently as to eliminate the virus staying on your hands.
  3. Do social distancing from others as it helps to prevent the spread of infection without close contact.
  4. Do not touch your eyes, nose and mouth before you wash your hands with soap as it will be the source of entry for the virus to get you infected.

Side Note:

Another sad day as we read about the infection rates worldwide is now 8,257,885 cases while the death rates is now 445,986 cases. The numbers seem to be increasing even though there are measures in place where people can do something about it to help eliminate further spreading. So it seems that even though we know & understand the need to be in safe distancing & wearing masks while in public but there will be some people who are defiance to abide simple guideline. Guess it is somehow nearly impossible to totally eradicate this virus until we get the vaccine cure or prevention. It is hard to predict how individual mind works as there tend to be resistance in all kind of situations in life. We can never get 100% cooperation from people to agree with any sort of proposes or ideas. We have to deal with it the best we can to move on in life.

Great news as Singapore proceeds with Phase 2 where most activities will resume as of 19 June 2020. But please do us a favor as to be vigilant with safe distancing & wearing masks in public as to avoid unnecessary transmission of infection. Here is what that will be allowed according to the Gov.sg announcement. Please do check on the site for further information of any changes.

  1. Dine-in for F&B where 5 persons per table with safe distancing of 1 metre.
  2. Social gatherings for up to 5 persons (visitors) for each household.
  3. Retail Outlets to reopen but prevent crowds or long queues.
  4. School students resume daily from 29 June 2020.
  5. Sports facilities & wellness reopen.
  6. Healthcare services will resume in operation.
  7. Home-based services can resume except for singing or voice training classes.

That’s what we gather from the Gov.sg and if you need to know more, please proceed to the website and find out further info. With the reopening of Singapore under Phase 2, we sincerely hope that everyone will do their parts as to maintain safe distancing & wearing masks while in public to help eliminate the possibility of transmission. Also keep washing your hands with soap frequently and before you touch your eyes, nose or mouth while in public. This is to safeguard yourself from getting infected with COVID-19.

You decide your path in life but please be civic minded as you do not want to increase the spike of virus for the sake of yourself as well as loved ones. Be vigilant to protect yourself with wearing mask & social distancing while in public. Important that you wash your hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose or mouth while in public since you will be exposed to this virus. Like what we always said, help yourself as you can help others to avoid being infected by this virus.
