Do the right thing about COVID-19

Only YOU can do the right thing as to end this deadly COVID-19 virus with cooperation like isolation (stay at home for a month), wearing masks in public, washing hands with soap and do social distancing.

It is a growing disaster as we all witness the amount of people being affected by the very dangerous pandemic that is causing lots of deaths all over the world. We believe that due to some misinformation about the danger of COVID-19 that has lead to the current situation. We all must get the right source of information so that we can all participate in doing our parts as a preventive measures to help not only yourself but others to avoid this deadly infection.

As what we view about this deadly virus that totally require every single human being to do what is necessary to avoid the spread of infection. Yes! Only we can help to prevent it from spreading further as long as we do our parts of preventive measures. As far as the information we understand, this virus is transmitted from human to human through contact of touching someone who is infected via touching our eyes, nose and mouth. Therefore the safeguard of having to wear masks is vital to help the chance of having the infection when someone close to you is sneezing or cough as it might transfer to you.

Remember the rule of washing hands with soap at least 20 seconds to get rid of any form of COVID-19 that you may have contacted with while you are in public places since it will likely be that you have made contact with surfaces that may be infected with the virus. It is better to be safe than sorry! We understand the danger of this virus but yet it is still spreading like wild fire and this may due to the fact that not all people are receiving the right source of information about it. Please help to spread the news about the danger of COVID-19 and it does not matter who you are as the infection will definitely be very dangerous when you are in contact with it.

The basic precautions will be doing your parts of social distancing while wearing masks in public. Try not to talk when you are in public transport or in crowded places. Best of all if possible, refrain from going out and stay at home as it will allow the virus to die off. This virus is being transmitted human to human and if every single human being in the world can avoid being in contact with people for just ONE MONTH, we sincerely believe that it will help to eliminate this virus. The reason as why it is spreading so widely is due to the gathering of people in public and touching the surface where there is the infection as we never know that it exists. This is a silent deadly virus where it can stay on surfaces of materials for a period of time when someone who has COVID-19 made contact with it.

So if you need to be in public, whenever you have contact with any surfaces of materials, try not to rub your eyes, nose and mouth without washing it with soap or using disinfectant to kill the virus. It is very important to take note of this since this deadly virus can enter your body via eyes, nose and mouth. So with frequent washing hands with soap will deter the virus from entering your body. We are the only people who can end this pandemic as long as we abide to the rules of safety precaution like social distancing, washing hands with soap frequently, wearing masks in public, etc.

That is the ideal case but in real life, we believe it is very difficult to ask every single human being to isolate themselves from going out in public for a month’s period to allow this deadly virus to end itself. That is why we are now witnessing so many people from all over the world being infected with it. Sadly that many people are dead with this infection. We have to be clear about this as the virus does not care who you are as once you are infected, your life is in danger. Like the saying goes: Prevention is better than cure. Please do your part as it will help yourself as well as others to avoid this very deadly virus. Think of your loved ones as you do not want it to happen to them.

Let us join forces and put an end to this COVID-19 pandemic and we can move on with our lives without fear of being infected. It is time for a wake up call to everyone to make this right decision and help one another regardless of race or religion. Be blessed with good health and take care of your 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.

Never ending battle with COVID-19 pandemic

Since the start of last year December 2019 when the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, we all are solely involved with the never ending fighting with this deadly virus which had already claimed so many lives of our dearest and continue to be harmful until we get the vaccine cure. What can we do? At this very moment, our ONLY cure will be social distancing & isolation! Yes! That will be the ONLY way to fight against this deadly virus and helping to contain it so that it will no longer be able to transmit human to human. Please abide to this simple and yet effective way as a prevention to avoid further spreading. This means we have to act just as a human being regardless of races or religions to combat this as one people. That way, we will slowly emerge as victory against COVID-19 pandemic.

This may sound simple but a tough situation. Why? After reading news every single day, we can tell that not all people will have the same determination of doing just that. It is a very hard path for all human beings at this stage since there are resistance from certain group of people who just want to defy this sort of action like social distancing or isolation whenever possible. This group of people simply don’t agree of doing such thing as they just want to do what they want without any sort of consideration for safety of others. But we still have hope that they will simply wake up one day and abide to this simple rule for the safety of themselves as well as their loved ones. This is a long battle with COVID-19 as well as different human perspective on this matter. We just hope that one day in the near future, everyone will see as one human being to another and do what is right as to eliminate this virus together. It is like hoping for a miracle as we do believe it can happen. Hopefully to be sooner than later.

Of course, we also need to rely on true news rather than fake news as it can be harmful when we do not know the truth. But the current situation of pandemic, it is best to keep wearing masks and washing hands with soap often whenever you are in public. Try as far as possible to minimize your public appearance and do what is needed and head home thereafter. Be informed of the news from reliable sources and know whatever is going on so that you can take all necessary preventive measures. It is sad to hear news about Chinese being beaten for no reason at all. This disease is not anyone’s fault as it does not choose who to be infected. One is just unlucky to be infected and having it to spread to another. This virus does not care about races or religions and can infect anyone. So, we all human beings should stand united and fight against it by using the right method of preventive measures and precautions. That way, we can prevent it from further spreading of human to human.

Think like human and behave like human! Then we have won half the battle already! The next half battle will depend on individual to abide the social distancing and isolation to avoid further spreading. Helping yourself as what you want to help your loved ones to be safe & sound. Let us work together for a safer society and put an end to this disaster together as one.
