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!

  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.

Visiting Jiufen in Taipei for vacation

It was another nice day to go and visit Jiufen in Taipei. We had taken quite a number of photographs which would be shown here. Hope you will get a rough idea of this place and should visit when you happen to visit Taipei. Happy viewing!

Unfortunately, it started to rain. What a spoiler! Well, that didn’t deter us from continuing to look around as we braved through this rainfall. It was so happen that this place had just encountered the typhoon in earlier week ahead and guess this was just the aftermath of the event.

That’s all we will be showing and next time we will continue with more photographs of this place in Jiufen. We hope you have a rough idea of this place and it is indeed a lovely place to visit and having a taste of the delicious food as well. Please do share your comments with us if you had been here before as we love to hear it.

Side note:

As the number of COVID-19 cases are still rising in certain countries while others are easing down on restrictions, we sincerely hope that people will not disregard the danger of this virus that is still lurking among us. It is yet to end since there is no vaccine cure is produced. So, please DO NOT be complacent as you still require to be vigilant against getting infected by it.

This means that you will need to abide the simple guideline that has been imposed by Government agencies which means wearing masks in public while doing the social distancing from one another. This is very important as to safeguard yourself & others to avoid human to human transmission. Other than that, you need to remember that washing hands with soap frequently will help to prevent the virus from your hands spreading the infection if you touch your nose, mouth and eyes. That is where the virus will get into your body and you having this infection. Take all necessary precautions without being complacent about it. You need to protect yourself as well as those around you especially your loved ones.

Why is this virus still spreading even though it is made known as how it can be transmitted?

Guess the simple and logic reason is that out of 100% population around the world, we think only around 80% people are doing what is right as to prevent the spreading while the rest of the 20% simply ignore such warning of danger. It is always the case for some human beings to think that way as they might feel that it is none of their concerns since they are not infected or presume to be free from infection. While some are not getting the right source of information about it as well as some are simply resisting the restriction against their freedom. We just hope that the day will come when 100% of the population will think alike and do what is best for all human beings.

Just remember that we are all basically HUMANS though we are separated in the forms of races & religions. We are still the same people regardless of our skin colors. Please think as a human being and allow yourself to abide simple rules and guideline as we move forward to fight against this deadly virus. Only through the cooperation of 100% population in the world, this will be able to end without having further death occurring worldwide.

Will we be able to have 100% cooperation worldwide?

Very unlikely! Reading the news daily and we can see that there will always be resistance by a certain percentage of people to disagree of doing the right thing. They will feel that they have the right of not doing it as it is their freedom of doing so if it may cause death. This is a kind of mindset that may be in some people’s thought but we still have hope that people can change if they give themselves a little more time and thoughts! It will likely be a very slow process and as long as there is a light of hope, we will emerge victory against this virus.

What should we do?

For all who are ready for fighting against COVID-19 pandemic, should continue to be more vigilant and not complacent by doing the right thing. This simply means continuing to wear masks and social distancing in public. Washing of hands with soap as frequent as possible and not touching your eyes, nose and mouth before washing your hands. Do the right thing for yourself and others to avoid further transmission. As long as the majority of us are doing the right thing, we might be able to persuade those who are not to also follow our examples. We might have hope to influence those who are against doing the right thing. We always believe if there is a will, there is a way!

Here are simple guideline that can help to fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

  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.
