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.

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.

Are you safe against COVID-19 pandemic?

This may sound like a million dollar question but the truth about individual safety is just a BIG Question mark! How safe are we against this deadly virus that has haunted us since last year December 2019? Just reading all the reports from various countries for the warnings that were given, we do believe it is still not very safe at the moment.

What will life be like from now onwards?

Guess everyone should be continuing to wear masks plus frequent washing hands with soap as well as social distancing in all public places. No more gathering in crowd as it exposes to spreading of this virus in close proximity between humans. We can’t tell how long this virus can survive without human as a host but if everyone does the part of not getting infected, it may die off without further transmission. This will be the ideal case! But in life, it may not be so realistic since there will be people who love to flout the rules like not wearing masks or going parties in gathering, etc. So the hope of having it to just die off will be a fantasy.

What can we do about it?

Take good care of your personal hygiene as one good example to be healthy. So the new norm in life will be having to wear masks, social distancing and washing hands frequently while in public. Also do not touch your face especially mouth, nose and eyes in public unless you just wash your hands with soap. This are the critical areas on your face where the virus can simply infect you unknowingly. So be extra careful while visiting in public as you definitely DO NOT want to be a victim of getting this infectious disease.

Is there hope for the future?

Yes! There is always HOPE for mankind. All hopes are put into the doctors, researchers and scientists to develop the vaccine that can control or protect our bodies against this infection. We cannot tell if this is going to happen soon or later and it may also be never as it will be dependent as whether the funding for research will continue. Countries may not continue in funding such research as the situation may subside or getting better. We will not know how it will be like in the near future but currently, we still have great hope to look forward for this vaccine cure. Meantime, we have to practice personal hygiene and maintain a good example to each other as not allowing human to human transmission.

Who is to be blamed?

As you maybe reading quite a number of news in the Internet where blames are being made. We feel that ourselves as humans are to be blamed for the creation of this virus. Why? Though we do not know the source of its beginning but we feel that all sorts of diseases or viruses are created due to our own actions. We did it unknowingly for the birth of diseases or viruses by our actions. Looking back in history, for all the diseases & viruses that were happened is just our own creation. It is something that we had done for it to start. We remembered in our younger days, there wasn’t much of technology innovation and life was simple but everyone was much healthier. There were much activities with our physical body unlike now, most of us are spending majority time on our chairs. Somehow with all the technological advancement, it had made us lazier than before. That is the price we have to pay for!

Will it be better in future?

With this COVID-19 pandemic, we need to learn from it and recover. It is a great lesson for every country in the world as there are mistakes made but we need to move on and learn this lesson. Since this is the first time our generation is facing the situation, the actions we take might be right or wrong but need to move forward for every mistake we made instead of dwelling about it. No one knows what is the right action to take until it is taken. Decisions made might be wrong or right but only be seen after actions are taken. It is easy for people to condemn the actions when it didn’t turn out to be right but no one actually knows until it is done. So, we hope that people will not be too fast to make judgement when things are not right instead should move forward to other options when it is not right. Learn from mistakes and move forward! That should be the right mindset about the current situation. With the cooperation of everyone doing their parts, there will be a future for all of us as we will see a greater reduction of transmission and life ahead will be better though may not be the same.

Here are some tips we still need to follow as to keep yourself and others to be safe!

  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.
