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.

Side Note:

As of today 15 June 2020, the infection from COVID-19 pandemic has increased to 7,984,432 cases while the number of death rates also increased at 435,177 cases worldwide. From reading these news around the world, we are sad to say that different countries are using their own methods of measures to react accordingly but unfortunately it may not be the correct solution. We sincerely hope that each individual country will be taking this matter at the highest alert in order to cope with the increase of infections & deaths. Please do not be complacent as the virus will not be disappearing any sooner. You need to implement a stricter measures as to avoid any further spreading and keeping the people safer against COVID-19.

Fortunately in Singapore, we are happy with the measures taken by the Government as to control the situation of preventing further spreading in the community. As the Government is easing on the restrictions for some businesses and schools, we should all be still vigilant and take all necessary precautions like wearing masks & doing social distancing from others in public in order to avoid getting the infection. Every person in Singapore should be alert and do what is right for yourself as well as others. We know that it will be best if one can stay at home so as to eliminate the possibility of transmission while others who cannot then must take the initiative of wearing masks & social distancing. This will be the most current cure of eliminating the transmission. Of course we still need to pay attention to wash our hands with soap frequently before touching our eyes, nose or mouth since this will be the entry point of the virus. All people should be doing the right thing together as we will emerge much more stronger than ever.

We also read about the unhappiness of some people regarding the measures taken by Singapore Government. It is understandable of such anger but one should be thinking that there is no foolproof of measures that can satisfy everyone or work correctly until it is carried out. Of course the most ideal case will be each implementation works to our desires. Unfortunately, it may not be the case everything when measures are taken since we will not know if it is correct until it has been tested. We sincerely appreciate what the Singapore Government is trying to do with much thoughts about it before each implementation. We believe that it is easy to point fingers & putting blame when it does not work out. But we need to think that measures are needed to carry out according to the situation that seems fit at that moment but if it does not work out then we need to move on for other methods. Our Government needs to improvise accordingly after each implementation and discharge those when not working. It is just a trial & error kind of situation since no one knows what is best to work on such crisis until it has been tested.

Be united as one people in Singapore and we will conquer over this crisis!

We do believe we all will learn the lesson from the COVID-19 pandemic and emerge much more stronger as we face the future after COVID-19. The most basic thing about this crisis is that every single human being should be doing their parts of keeping themselves safe by wearing masks & social distancing while in public. Not forgetting to wash hands with soap frequently as it helps to prevent getting the infection when one touches the eyes, nose or mouth. It is the job of every person to help eliminating this spread of virus irregardless of what news you may be getting from the Internet. Best current cure to stay at home, wearing masks, social distancing and washing hands with soap in order to keep this virus at bay. People’s action will result in helping to reduce the amount of transmission. Please do your parts to help eliminate further human to human transmission.

Lastly, we hope people will continue to follow these guideline as to help yourself to avoid any sort of infection with COVID-19. Be blessed with good health and do take care of yourself & loved ones.

  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.

Adventure at Ximending in Taipei

We went to Ay-Chung Flour-Rice noodle store to try out since we had heard that they were quite famous.

We also heard about this place where they were selling Soya Milk. So we went there to check it out and bought some to test and see if it was as good as they had said in the Internet.

We went to Ximending and checked it out the area. While roaming at this place, we were also trying out the street food along the way during our walk around.

As you could see, some of these street food looked quite delicious. We had fun during this walkabout in this area.

That’s all for today’s article and we shall continue again another day. We hope that you have an idea of this area and if you had been to this place before, please do not hesitate to share your comments with us as we love to hear them.

Side Note:

This figure of infections worldwide is now 7,318,124 and death rates is 413,648 while the recovery status is 3,602,580 as of this morning.

Based on yesterday figure, there is more than 5 thousands deaths in a day. This is indeed a scary thing that continues happening to all humans worldwide. It is time for us to be taking it seriously as the spread of COVID-19 is not stopping any time sooner. Even though some countries are recommending people to be back in their routine life for work, we must still be vigilant as to abide all the preventive measures to ensure safety among us. This simply means that everyone should continue to wear masks as well as social distancing from one another in order to prevent further spreading. On top of this, we still need to maintain a good personal hygiene practice of washing hands with soap frequently before touching your eyes, nose or mouth. This will help to avoid getting the infection through your hands since you might have touched the fluid of the virus while in public. Like to saying goes: Better safe than sorry!

Sadly to read about some countries where people are not practicing safety distancing or wearing masks that can pose a danger to others. This is indeed a bad choice made by people who might still be ignorant or simply couldn’t be bothered in doing so. The fact that COVID-19 is still a potential danger to all humans regardless of race, language or religion, therefore no one should be going in public without having their masks or doing social distancing from each other. This is a MUST DO thing at all times from now onward in order to keep yourself as well as loved ones to be safe. Please do it as a human being and do not let it spreads to others if you happen to be infected.

With the continuation of spreading for COVID-19, it shows that not all people are civic minded about the danger it poses. Or some might be actually influenced by the wrong information or faked news about the situation being better and no longer needed to take precaution any further. Please do advice those who may not be aware that the situation is never going to be over any sooner therefore we must 100% abide to the safety guideline of wearing masks, social distancing and washing hands with soap frequently. This will help to reduce further spreading of COVID-19. Please do your part and help yourself as well as others to eliminate further human to human transmission. Let us put a stop to this once and for all with 100% cooperation from every single human in the world at the same time.

Again, with resistance from some will actually make it difficult to totally eliminate the virus. We can only hope for the vaccine cure which will not be available in a year or so. Therefore we have to adopt this new trend of lifestyle as a norm. Keep in mind that every single effort you put in will actually help to reduce by a certain percentage though may not be 100%. At least it will be in a control manner as long as we try and put in the effort of doing so.

As you may be aware that Singapore Government is coming out with the contact tracing device which can be pretty useful as to eliminate as much unknown sources which are affecting people. Without totally eliminate these unknown sources, it will be harder to put in place some form of control to prevent its spreading. So, we totally are in for getting this device for better contact tracing in case we are being exposed to one or more people who are infected. We do understand that there are people who are asymptomatic and not showing any signs of infection, therefore with this device, we will be able to trace and know about it. We are currently using the TraceTogether app but it is unable to work with iPhone users so having this device will be a better solution in contact tracing. Hopefully people will realize the importance of contact tracing for the sake of their families as well as other people around them. Guess it will kind of receive resistance from some but please do think about what it can do to help people who may get infected without knowing why. You can help everyone simply with a device that can help to trace when be infected by someone.

We hope that people will continue to follow these simple but yet effective methods of safeguard oneself and others in a long run. Be blessed with good health and take care!
