Trip to UK London

Here are some photographs for the trip to London. It was pretty enjoyable trip since we got to try some nice meals and sightseeing along the way. As compared with Singapore, this place is really huge and we couldn’t cover all the places in London since most of the travelling time was quite long. Anyway, we managed to cover for places we wanted to go and so it was very pleasant indeed.

That’s all for our article today. We will write more and show more photographs another day. Hope you have enjoyed viewing these photographs and do share your comments if you had been to London before. We love to hear from you.

Side note:

Our country is having election on 10 July 2020 and we sincerely hope that the people of Singapore will vote wisely as who they want to guide us into the future. We must endorse a good & strong Government to help the people of Singapore into the journey of prosperity and harmony. Being the older generation, we had enjoyed very much for what our Government have been doing all these years since Independent. Now we wish that our younger generations will have the good eyesight of making the right choice and giving a strong mandate for the Government to continue working for the people of Singapore.

We do understand that some may be influenced by emotions but that should not be the decision one should be making. We have to think seriously as how the candidates we are voting to have future plans and guiding us towards a new & better future. This is not a rosy sit for those who are willing to devote themselves to serve the people of Singapore. It is a tough job as they have to do a lot of planning in advance and with good strategy as how our country can develop. But at times we may witness some projects that might fail as no one can guarantee the success. Nevertheless if the project had gone through some stringent checks and still fail then one should learn from it to advance further without making the same mistake. We have to understand that Government are still humans like us and comes to venture, it goes either way of winning or losing.

We need to vote for a Government who are willing to lead us with plans and solutions to help the people of Singapore. Listen closely to what they talk about and what they are willing to commit for the people of Singapore. One should not get too emotional about ‘dirt’ or rumor that is unfounded. Even if one had made mistake in the past, it does not mean they cannot do the right thing. It is about now and how it can help the people of Singapore to move ahead into the future. Vote with a clear mind as we certainly need a good & strong Government to guide the people of Singapore.

Situation of COVID-19 is still dangerous as we still have some unknown sources among the community. We need to have a much better solution to do contact tracing and fortunately our Government has recommended a device which utilize bluetooth connection to do the contact tracing. This is indeed a very good initiative taken by our Government to distribute this device to everyone in Singapore. As we do understand that the current TraceTogether app are having limited subscribers due to some issues of iPhone’s connectivity as well as older generations may not be carrying smartphone. So coming up with the device is indeed a good initiative by our Government as to help with better contact tracing in Singapore.

Please do continue to be a little Kiasu & Kiasi like wearing masks & do social distancing when in public. Also do remember to wash your hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth since it will be the entry point for the virus into your body. Help yourself as you can help others to avoid getting this infection.

Be blessed with good health and take care of yourself & loved ones.

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.

Visit Wufenpu Shopping District in Taipei

It was a day outing to Wufenpu Shopping District in Taipei. We would like to show you some photographs taken during our visit. At least you will have a rough idea of this place in case you wish to visit while you are in Taiwan.

That’s all for today and do hope you have some ideas of this place. If you had been to Wufenpu Shopping District before, we hope you can share your comments with us here so others can know about it. Thank you.

Side Note:

Being Singaporean, we are happy to learn that our Government is going to distribute free for the first batch of portable contact tracing devices to people in the latter half of this month. With this device, we will be able to eliminate those unknown sources of infections that we may be exposed to while in public. This is indeed the best initiative approach by our Government agency since the Circuit Breaker had ended and businesses as well as schools have re-opened. As we are well aware that the current TraceTogether app is unable to be used for iPhone therefore having this device will ensure we are equipped to do contact tracing for everyone while in public. Thumb up!

Read today’s update that we already have more than 7 millions people infected by COVID-19 with 408,625 deaths. The top 3 countries having the most infections are USA (2,026,493), Brazil (710,887) and Russia (476,658) with death rates of 113,055 (USA), 37,312 (Brazil) and 5,971 (Russia). As we viewed this in general, it means that we should totally be 100% strict in measures against the spread of COVID-19 and not allowing people who disregards the safety of others by doing whatever they want to. We have to safeguard the majority of people who want to be safe against COVID-19 and not letting some who are not civic minded about this matter. We as individual should undertake the task of having preventive measures like wearing masks & doing social distancing from others as not to allow the spread of virus. Personal hygiene plays an important role of being safe against the virus like washing hands with soap frequently and not touching your eyes, nose or mouth unless you have washed your hands, etc.

The world needs your help!

As long as each and everyone of us abide to the safety measures imposed by WHO and doing the right thing then we will be able to witness the reduction of spreading and soon be under control. That is the most realistic thought but hard to achieve in real life since not all individual will have the same mindset as they will be resistance to abide with the regulations while others might receive the wrong information about COVID-19. We understand the danger of people talking about COVID-19 without knowing the right information as they might be reading some faked news about it. It is always wise to refer to reliable sources especially from Government sites or hospital news as to keep yourself updated about the situation. Read it from different reliable sources and compare the news to ensure it is not just some faked news. Please analyze the information and not to be ignorant about it as faked news can put you in danger. Also, please do not spread faked news to others as it will affect their lives when they trust your words about it.

As usual, we know that following these steps as guideline will be able to ensure some form of safety measures for us. Please do it for yourself in order to keep your loved ones and others to be safe. Thank you! Be blessed with good health and have a great day ahead!
