Singapore’s economy

With the election over, now our Government will face a tougher job to help rebuilding Singapore’s economy as it affects every single country in the world as well. This is definitely be one of the toughest time since the World War’s era. But we sincerely believe that our Government will put their hearts & mind together as they will guide all Singaporeans towards the right path and eventually we will emerge stronger than ever. It may not be so soon as all of us are likely to face unemployment, pay cut or going for unpaid leave, etc since quite a number of companies are suffering losses during this COVID-19 crisis. It is time to be UNITED as one people and work together with our Government to solve the COVID-19 pandemic (not allowing it to spreading further from human to human transmission) and rebuilding the economy.

We have to understand that our Government will be doing most of the supportive roles in getting investors, creating new jobs, etc and Singaporeans may have to expect change in job’s scope or upgrading their current skills, etc to be employed by companies according to its requirements. We believe more and more companies will be moving towards using Internet technology as to promote their products with some countries carrying out lockdown. Therefore digital communication and promotions for companies will be one of the options where they can utilize to help their businesses. With this COVID-19 pandemic for the past few months, we understand that the new norm of people working from home seems to be viable as long as they are not front end support staffs. This maybe so for the next few years as we do not know when the vaccine cure will be made available to prevent or even cure with it.

As we can see that travel will be quite costly due to certain restrictions are in place for travellers and this will greatly affect the airline’s businesses. There will likely be scale down effect for airlines since there will not be much flights to certain countries due to certain regulations and requirements. Also we will notice a significant of cut in tourism for most countries as travellers will be subjected to quarantine depending on the country’s guideline for COVID-19. So we can see that there will be an enormous changes in our lifestyle as everyone is greatly affected by COVID-19.

Ultimately, we hope that everyone will be putting in their safeguard against spreading of COVID-19 by taking all necessary precautions. This preventive measures may be simple but it needs everyone’s attention and carrying them out in order to avoid transmitting to others.

  1. Try to isolate yourself whenever possible to remain at home.
  2. Wearing masks & do social distancing when needs to be in public.
  3. Washing your hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth. This are the entry point for the virus into your body.

Remember that helping yourself will help others to avoid getting this infection and we will slowly but surely reduce the amount of infections as we can see that every day in the world, the numbers are climbing higher and higher. That’s why we need the cooperation of every single human beings in the world to reduce this infection. Think of your loved ones and do the right thing to prevent it from further spreading.

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

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.

Experiment with OSIM Well-being 3D scan

It was a fun day at Changi Airport and we did a test with OSIM well-being 3D scan just for fun. It was quite interesting as you just need to be standing on the device where it would rotate round to do the complete scan of your body’s feature. It would then output on the system where it captured your details of weight, body mass, etc. If you ever been to the Changi Airport, you may want to give it a try and find out a little more about your health conditions.

Every day when we read about the world news for COVID-19, it saddens our hearts as many people have suffered and died because of this deadly virus. It is also sad to know some people are still not convinced of its danger and continue to disregard the safety measures thus putting all of us in grave situation. No matter what you maybe thinking or hearing, the best advice for everyone is to try staying at home if possible otherwise take the necessary precautions like wearing masks and doing social distancing while in public. In addition, please kindly do wash your hands with soap frequently especially when you need to touch your eyes, nose and mouth as we understand that it is the entry point for the virus into your body. Please help yourself as you can help others to avoid getting this deadly infection. Spread the words to as many people as you can via Internet, social media, emails, etc without any physical contact.

Be bonded as a community of people and carry out the right mindset to prevent any further spreading of this virus. It is more of a human war against this virus and we are the only person who can contain it without endangering others just with isolation. Keep in mind that you will be doing a good deed by keeping yourself & loved ones to be safe from this COVID-19. Every action will result a reaction so if one can safely maintain a good habit of doing the right thing, then we all can be safer in return. So, please try to be more civic minded in the matter as it involves every person in this world. Your caring for this matter will be greatly rewarded with good health and free from COVID-19.

In Singapore, we are grateful that our Government is going to supply us with the contact tracing device which will help to reduce the amount of unknown sources. As we all know that these unknown sources of people will be the most dangerous since we can be in contact with them without being aware of it. So, with this device, it does help to reduce the workload of contact tracing and eliminate the unknown sources as much as possible. These unknown sources can be those who are asymptomatic and are carriers therefore with this device, we will be able to narrow down our contacts while in public.

Thumbs Up!

We sincerely hope that every country will take good initiative to do what is right for the people and prevent this spreading. Be blessed with good health and take care of yourself & loved ones!
