COVID-19 pandemic is currently here to stay until we get 100% people to cooperation together as to eliminate it. But sadly, this seems to be an impossible task since we will never be able to get 100% cooperation from every single human in the world to see this objective. However, we should never be despaired as those of us who want to be safe and sound can continue to do our duties of preventive measures against getting the infection.

Today we watched the video by our founding Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew made in 2003 about the outbreak of SARS and how important it was for Singapore to face as one the health and economic crisis that Sars brought “regardless of race, language, or religion”. The founding Prime Minister had added: “We had people who broke the quarantine, but we had a cooperative population. It was a population that knew that survival was at stake and cooperated with each other and with the Government.” These were the most encouraging words that had embedded in our minds and we had great respect with what he had said.

Today as we are facing similar situation like SARS, therefore we have to have to give our cooperation to survival this ordeal. We sincerely hope each and everyone of us will remember what our founding father had said to us and we should all be bonded as one people to outcome all obstacles we are facing today! We should never allow this bad situation deter us from doing what is right for Singapore as we brave ourselves against this COVID-19 disaster. With the right effort and persistent, we will definitely be able to overcome this crisis.

In the midst of this crisis, we are indeed sad to read about bad things happening around the world as we are fighting against this virus. We sincerely pray that people will see each others as HUMAN and do the right thing for one another in current crisis. No matter what races or religions we are, basically we are plainly just human to one another and should never be treated differently. It is due to discrimination by some people which has caused problems worldwide and being indifferent result in chaos. Instead, people should just treat one another as human being. We pray that one day it will come for everyone to realize there is no difference between one human to another and it will be peace for the world.

Treat others like how you want them to treat you!

Yes! We all should be doing that! We remembered those younger days when we were living in kampongs and everyone knows each others and sharing food among ourselves. Those good old days where we did not even need to lock our doors as we lived harmoniously among us without fear of danger. We really miss those good old days! Guess it is hard to move backwards to those times but we still can maintain such good relationship as long as we all put in a little effort of caring for one another. It will be good for parents to teach their children these values and learn to appreciate one another as human.

It is sad that some of the newer generation of adults are not really understand how to properly discipline their children as allowing them to do what they please. Maybe they think it is better to allow the children to be free but frankly, we think it is better to have some rules and the do’s and don’ts for children as they are pure in thoughts. They do not really know what is right & wrong unless you guide them. Reward and punishment should be carried out justly so they know while growing up. It is not only the duty of the school teachers but also parents to guide the proper path in growing up. Guess nowadays some parents are better off and giving too much freedom to their children and not knowing they might be influenced by bad behaviors from other children.

This is so sad how some children are brought up without much caring and picking up bad behaviors from other children. Without proper guidance from their parents will soon go out of hands as they grow up. You will notice some of these cases while shopping where some children were simply left alone to run around wildly without supervision. This is very dangerous as you will never know what can happen with them doing that especially accidents. Remember that it is your children that will require much of your attention other than the school teachers trying their best to impart the right knowledge of behaviors and upbringing.

We all know one bad apple spoils the bunch!

We should never allow such thing to influence you! Looking at the COVID-19 crisis, every single person’s effort can help to prevent further spreading even though we can’t get 100% cooperation! Just do your part as you will be helping others to avoid being infected as well as yourself to be safe. We hope you will abide to the simple rules even though the Circuit Breaker had ended and we are now in Phase 1 for opening up businesses and schools. Be safe and have a lovely day ahead!

  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.

Sightseeing at Raohe Night Market in Taipei

Just a short visit to Raohe Night Market in Taipei. We had heard about this place before traveling here so just dropped by to check it out. Of course we would be trying out some food here since our pleasure in Travel was all about food and scenery. If you ever been here before, we love to hear from you about it.

Smelly Toufu

That’s all the pictures we took at this place. Well, we will continue another article the next time again. Hopefully it will be more exciting so that you can enjoy viewing them. Anyway, if you had been here before, please kindly write in the comments so we can hear about it as well.

Side Note:

As Circuit Breaker in Singapore already ended yesterday, today will be the first day of Phase 1 where some people as well as students will be back in public places. We do sincerely hope that those needed to be back to work or studies, please do not be complacent about this as the danger is not over yet! Kindly do be vigilant and do what is necessary to avoid getting the infection. Simple guideline like wearing masks and do social distancing from others will be the basic requirement as to keep yourself & others from getting infection if either party already infected. This is to safeguard yourself or others to avoid being infected by each other. We do understand that there will be some form of inconvenience but necessary to carry out as to be safe.

Please do abide to the simple rule and keep yourself and others safe. You are doing it for not only yourself but others as well as your loved ones since nobody wants to be infected while in public. As we understand that the most worrying part about this virus is that people can be infected but without their knowledge. So this will be the unknown sources which can be spreading this virus. Therefore it will be good of you to install the TraceTogether app in Singapore so to enable a more better contact tracing should one of you be infected, you will be informed about it rather than not knowing you had exposed yourself with someone having the infection. It is scary when you are walking in public without knowledge of whether the person(s) around you are infected or not.

There is always some kind of strategies that can be implemented but ultimately it will depend on humans to carry out. As we all know that it is the most difficult task to enforce this since there will be group of people who will resist on following the simple rule. Some may say that it is their freedom to do whatever they want without consideration of others around them should they be infected. While others may just want to show their rebellious nature against the rules which they are not happy about. Since we are unable to get 100% cooperation from every single human then it will be a tough situation of getting this under control. Nevertheless, as long as we do our best in keeping ourselves & others to be safe, it will be okay. Every single bit of effort by someone will goes a long way to end this pandemic. Who knows we can influence those who are not to feel the same way as we about this situation. Shower with love and caring to one another by doing the right thing and the situation will be better!

It is very sad to read about news where there are sources of FAKE news circulating in the Internet where people kind of believe what it had written about it. We simply hope that people will read news from legal sources like Government sites for real news and not to be influence by those fake news that can result in harming you. We do understand the in such a desperate situation of pandemic, people can be easily influence by those fake news and ended up to be in worst situation. Should you be reading such news, please take a step back to consider about it and verify them from the legal sites like Government agencies before believing what was written. You do not want to harm yourself in any way by listening to fake news.

Lastly, we hope everyone can abide to these simple guideline as it will help to keep yourself and loved ones to be safe. Every bit of effort done by you will go a long way.

  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.
