Side note:

According to the figure today for the COVID-19 infection, it had risen to 6,844,705 and that is not a good sign since it had been six months when it first started. This simply means that there are countries are not enforcing strict rules to manage the prevention of spreading. We all do clearly understand that the coronavirus will spread human to human and all we need to do will simply be isolation or social distancing in public with masks on.

But why this still persist on until this day?

Guess some people are having different thoughts in their minds! If you are thinking that you maybe immune to it, think twice! This virus will simply infect anyone at any place or time. Do not take your chance when you are in public since you will be exposed to unknown sources and get infected. We all must clearly be aware of such danger and be totally vigilant about it. It is better safe than sorry!

Of course you may also find some people who desire some bad thoughts of spreading this virus to others without any kind of conscience. They simply just want to do whatever they want and not bother with the consequences. This is simply very sad to know but it is the true fact about life. We sincerely pray for the day will come where every person will look at each other as HUMAN and be treated like the same for everyone. Then we do believe that the world will be a better place to live in and no more fighting among ourselves. Will this day comes? Maybe or maybe not! Only time will tell in the future where we will no longer look at each other in a different way like races or religions as we are all the same HUMAN beings.

We do believe that Government agencies in Singapore will try their best with implementation of safeguard but it will never be foolproof unless it is with the cooperation of everyone of us to abide the rules. Strategy and plans cannot work unless the people are willing to put in the efforts. We know that the situation is getting better with all the necessary preventive measures but if without every person’s cooperation, we might be facing a second wave of attack like other countries after opening up and easing control. So, please take it seriously as you need to be 100% vigilant and do your part of wearing masks & social distancing from others while in public. If possible, please remain isolated as it will help to reduce or eliminate further spreading. As long as individual help in doing this, we believe that it can come to an end though will be unlikely since not 100% people will abide to the guideline. But then, as long as we do our parts, it will reduce the spreading of this deadly virus.

Once again, we hope that you can stick to these guidelines as it will definitely help to reduce further transmission of virus and we all will be safe again.

  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.
  5. If you need to sneeze, please use a tissue or otherwise bend your elbow and sneeze in between there.
  6. Should you have fever, cough and shortness of breathe, please do consult a doctor. Remember to wear mask when doing so.
  7. In order for more effective contact tracing, please do download the TraceTogether app for those who are staying in Singapore. This will actually eliminate those unknown sources as well as allow you to be informed should you be exposed to someone having the infection.

Self service store in Taipei

Today was interesting as we witnessed of this self service store that could be seen as popular in Taipei. The food looked like pretty good though we never tried it. Something that we had never seen before in our Travel around the world. We simply found it amazing!

That’s all for this article. It was just something which we never seen before and so we love to show it here. If you had come across such self service store elsewhere in other countries, please share your comments as we love to hear from you.

Side Note:

Singapore had ended the Circuit Breaker on 1st June 2020 and we hope that people will still abide to the simple guideline of wearing masks & do social distancing from one another since this is the only option for cure in prevention. Please try not to be complacent but instead stay vigilant against COVID-19 pandemic as we never know if there will be a second wave of attack by it. It just takes one unknown source to spread further which might be the next wave of virus attack. We need to help each other in order to safeguard the safety of every person in the worldwide.

Will that be easier said than done?

Guess not! Why? Even though we are all just humans but the mind of each person tends to be different as one might has some kind of resistance to just follow the rules. So, when a person defies the rules then it will help the spread of COVID-19 and this will definitely turn out bad for everyone of us.

One bad apple spoils the whole bunch!

This is always the truth in life. Since we hardly can get 100% people to believe and do the right thing, it will be ending up disaster! What we can only do is to spread the right news and hope that one will receive it with good grace. That is all we can do by spreading the right words so people might be following it and do the right thing.

If there is a will, there will be a way! That’s what we believe in life. Even not everyone will believe or do the same thing but with our sincerity, we believe others will follow with their hearts. As long as we understand the true fact that we are all just plain HUMAN BEINGS and we should be UNITED in this sort of situation as to fight against all odds with COVID-19. That way, we will definitely emerge victory!

This is our hope that 100% people will think alike and do whatever is necessary to help one another to tide over this pandemic. Remember every single bit of effort you put in to avoid the spreading will go a long way in life. Regardless of what others might do, all it needs is you to start doing the right thing. We need to have the same mentality so things will start to get to be better as time goes along. Don’t blame too much on others but your effort will gather some form of results since it will help to avoid further spreading.

Bad news can be heard from other countries where it seems to be kind of out control due to misinformation of the situation. So, it is clear that we must always get from reliable sources when facing crisis. If unsure of what information you are getting, please try to verify through Government agencies and also give some thoughts about the info you are receiving. Be sensible and give much thoughts about it whether or not the information you get is the right thing to do. Sometimes we are overwhelmed with information that we ended up believing what that is not true to be true. So, we ourselves need to be calm and take some times to consider what had been said and whether or not it is true. Impulse decision tends to be at fault! So gather your thoughts and analyze it before jumping into conclusion.

Look before you leap!

That is always a very good advice for us in many years as we believe that one should be calm and consider all facts before jumping into consideration. Not everything you hear or see is the true fact. It is up to individual to have a sound mind & soul to realize as whether or not what had been presented to you will be the whole truth. So, gather all your thoughts and consider all the facts you have in hand and decide as whether it is what it says to be true. That should always be the right way of handling information especially when you are being overwhelmed with it. Stay cool in your thoughts as you can analyze it much better and sensibility.

Again, we like to tell everyone that these are the simple steps we can follow as to keep everyone safe from COVID-19. Simple but yet difficult as not every person tends to follow the rules. All we can do is try our best since every single effort by you will pay off in a long run. Let us do it from today’s onwards.

  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.
  5. If you need to sneeze, please use a tissue or otherwise bend your elbow and sneeze in between there.
  6. Should you have fever, cough and shortness of breathe, please do consult a doctor. Remember to wear mask when doing so.
  7. In order for more effective contact tracing, please do download the TraceTogether app for those who are staying in Singapore. This will actually eliminate those unknown sources as well as allow you to be informed should you be exposed to someone having the infection.

All about food delights in Taipei

That’s all for some of the food delights we had during our vacation. There were more food we had while in Taiwan and if you had been there, please do share with us your comments as we love to hear them.

Side Note:

It sadden us to read about the COVID-19 pandemic had already infected more than 6 millions people worldwide and causing more than 300 thousands of deaths as a result. This is indeed the worst news in history for a pandemic that is causing so many deaths.

Why is it continuing at this rate of infection?

One simple answer we can think of is people are still not taking it seriously due to misinformation or just being defiant about it. We understand about the danger of not getting the right signal about how bad this virus can cause harm to individual when not taking all the necessary preventive measures to safeguard against infection. The right message can be obtained from all Government agencies worldwide and need to take action in order to avoid having the infections.

Simple guideline of social distancing and wearing masks in public but yet many are still not serious about it. Why? Guess some people are reading from a mix source of information that had confused their thoughts about what will be the right thing to do. Also there will be people who just refuse to obey the rules and do whatever they feel like doing. We presume that is one of the reasons why we are still having the rise in numbers for infections worldwide. As we had mentioned many times since the COVID-19 had announced as pandemic, we just need to do at least ONE month of isolation for the entire country as to eliminate the human to human transmission and slowly allowing it to die off. Unfortunately, this is not done by 100% people in the country month after month as we can see it had dragged for the last few months since the disease started in December 2019.

Resistance to abide the guideline is the main cause of COVID-19 to persist on for many months. It is a very tough job for all Government agencies to handle the situation when not 100% people are willing to abide the simple rule of engagement. This is indeed sad and very disheartening when we know how serious it can be affecting individual’s health. Well, guess for all those who clearly understand the danger and having the right knowledge of preventive measures to do the right thing. We can only hope for the best outcome and hopefully those who are resistance about following the rules, do not get the infection to spread around us.

As we understand that countries are starting to ease on restrictions as there are signs of improvement but we must never be complacent about it since the virus is still very much alive and please continue to be vigilant so as not to spread this virus to others & loved ones. We all need to do our parts even though some may not do so. Every single bit of effort carry out by individual makes a difference. We must try to persuade those who may still be resistance about this and change their mindset as it is for the good of others!

We are happy to hear about 30 countries are sharing resources and information with regards to COVID-19 as this will indeed benefit the entire world. Sharing of information about their researches of producing vaccines can be helpful to get result sooner rather than later. No matter when we will have the vaccine, every single person in the world should maintain the basic rule of doing social distancing and wearing masks while in public. Of course we must forget about personal hygiene like washing hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth since this is known to be the entry point for this COVID-19. Do your part to keep everyone safe and sound.

Lastly, this will be our advice for cure currently as to avoid being infected by COVID-19. Remember, every bit counts in prevention!

  1. Stay isolated or quarantine for 1 month at the same time for the whole country.
  2. Washing your hands with soap often as to get rid of any virus on your hands.
  3. Do not use your hands to touch your face like eyes, nose or mouth unless you have just washed it.
  4. Wear masks when you are in public places and keep social distancing as well.
  5. If you sneeze or cough, use a tissue or elbow to conceal it.
  6. If you are having a fever, cough and difficulty in breathing, please wear mask and consult a doctor immediately.
  7. Download the contact tracing software in Singapore so that it helps to reduce the unknown sources and also keep you inform if you happen to be in contact with someone who is infected with COVID-19.
