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.

Exploratorium experience in USA

It was another great day to go for ad adventure to explore the Exploratorium in USA. This was our first time to visit this place and we were all getting excited about it. We were wondering what to expect and what we could see from this place as it was a place to show the works of innovators.

Entry to exploratorium

A different kind of dizzy
Changing the postion of your head affects your feeling of dizziness.

  • Sit in the chair, lay your head on the bar, and spin. If you spin long enough the feeling of motion will lessen. This happens when the fluid in your inner ear syncs with your head’s motion.
  • Now look up. Do you feel a sense of dizziness or tumbling? This happens when your inner ear responds to your head movement.

What’s going on?

Inside your inner ear are semicircular canals that maintain your sense of balance. These canals are filled with fluid and tiny hairs. Your brain senses motion as the fluid moves the hairs.

Make the effect stronger by:

  • Sitting up with your eyes closes.
  • Laying your head down with your ear pressed to the bar.

Your inner ear’s semicircular canals have three different orientations to let you sense movement in many directions.

Color your judgment
Your expectations may change your experience.

  • These 10 bottles contain 5 different scents. Sniff each one and try to find the scents that match.
  • Lift the flap in the center to find out which ones match and see what the different scents are.

What’s going on?

We are used to having smells go with certain colors: sweet things have fruity colors like yellow, red or orange; herbal scents are green; earthy scents are brown.

The scents here that have “inappropriate” colors are harder to identify than ones with the color you expect. And when smell matches color, you may find the scent stronger and more pleasant.

That’s all for today as there are many more photographs of this place and we will continue again another day. Hope you have enjoyed viewing these photographs and if you had been to Exploratorium in California USA, please do share your comments with us about what you think of this place.

Side Note:

Sadly to hear that as of today 18 June 2020, the infection rates had gone up to 8,400,129 cases while the death rates are now 451,263 cases. As we can see that there is no stopping of increment for the infections as well as the death rates worldwide and the only way to reduce the spreading will be people doing the right thing.

What is the right thing to do?

Simple! Just isolate or quarantine yourself to stay at home whenever possible. If needed to be in public, please do wear masks & do social distancing from others in order to avoid the spread of virus in case some people who are asymptomatic who will be the unknown sources. Also at the same time, please remember to wash your hands with soap frequently and especially before you touch your eyes, nose or mouth where the infection gets into your body. With extra care and precautions taken, you can help to prevent further spreading of this virus. Help yourself as you can help others to avoid transmission of virus. A good deed goes a long way in your life.

As we understand that in Singapore, our Government had announced the second phase of easing the restrictions as to allow more businesses and schools to be reopened. Please read this information from the site: Gov.sg and know what to do during the Phase 2 period. As we like to advice for those who can be working from home, should continue to do so as it helps to prevent spreading of this virus. As we do realize that there are still unknown sources from people who had not been tested but are carrying the infections, it will be best that we avoid being in public as far as possible. If no choice but needed to be in public, then please do take measures like wearing masks & do social distancing from others will actually provide a way of avoiding to be infected. This means everyone should compliant to this measure so it can be effective to eliminate human to human transmission. Other than that, one should also be washing hands with soap frequently and especially before touching your eyes, nose or mouth since it is the entry point of infection. As long as we humans take all these necessary precautions, we sincerely believe that it will help further reduction of spreading.

Let’s do our parts and keep all Singaporeans as well as others to be safe!

As we read about news informing us the latest updates of COVID-19 pandemic, we can see that different countries have their own contingency plan to handle the COVID-19 pandemic. Some countries are doing well with the control while others are not but no matter what are the measures put in place, we ourselves should take the task of keeping ourselves safe with our own precautions like wearing masks & social distancing as well as washing hands with soap frequently. These are the basic needs that can help to avoid further spreading! We have to cooperate with all others who are doing the right things to carry out the basic preventive measures. We definitely need to help ourselves so that we can help others to prevent the spread. It is a good deed that everyone should abide to these rules.

It’s as simple as ABC! But requires the cooperation of every single human in the world to reduce further spread of COVID-19. Can we do it? Not as simple as it sounds since we will definitely encounter resistance from some people in the world as they simply want to defy these measures for God knows what reasons they have in mind. Looking at the bright side, we sincerely hope that one day they decide to abide with the preventive measures and soon we will see the drop in numbers for infections. We can only hope to see that day to come …

Lastly, we like to end this with the standard precautions that each of us can undertake to reduce the possibility of further spreading.

  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.

Airport Browsing

Took a flight to USA and here are some photographs taken during this trip. It was just some random taking of snapshots and hope you will enjoy these views.

That’s all for today. We will be back again to provide more photographs of our travel around the world. We hope you have enjoyed viewing and should you be traveling around the world, please share your comments with us as we love to hear them.

Side Note:

Reading today’s report on 16 June 2020, we learnt that there are already 8,118,908 cases of infections and the death rates are now 439,204 in record. We wonder why the numbers are kept increasing even though everyone understands the danger of human to human transmission and yet different countries are showing more infections and deaths than others. Why can’t we all take a break and analyze the situation based on individual country. If your country are seeing the rise of infection then people should start to look at the preventive measures for current cure like wearing masks & do social distancing from others while in public as well as washing hands with soap frequently to eliminate the chances of spreading. We, as individuals should be taking all necessary precautions to safeguard ourselves when being exposed in public as we will never know those who are unknown sources that we might be in contact with. This means that even if your country are easing down the restrictions of movement, we ourselves should maintain good personal hygiene as well as the preventive measures while in public.

Important to maintain your current measures of wearing masks & doing social distancing in public as well as washing hands with soap frequently. This helps to reduce the possibility of human to human transmission. Remember that you can help yourself in order to help others to avoid this spread of virus. Please be socially responsible on this matter as we humans are the only way to stop further spreading by doing the right thing. Your action will prove to be an effective way of having deterrent against the spread of virus.

As in Singapore, we will be going into Phase 2 after the Circuit Breaker (ended on 1st June 2020) and Phase 1 (started on 1st June 2020) which means further opening of businesses and schools based on the guideline provided by the Government. We had witnessed other countries after lifting the restrictions, they were hit by second wave of infections and causing the rise of cases thereafter. So, we can see that even though our Government has moved to Phase 2, we must still be vigilant against the spread of virus. Therefore, maintaining the current cure of wearing masks & doing social distancing while in public is a must as well as washing hands with soap frequently. This will help to reduce the chances of having more human to human transmission since we do know that there are still some unknown sources of people who are not tested and may continue to spread when you are exposed in public. No matter under whatever situation, we should always maintain the simple practice of wearing masks & social distancing when in public. Also continue to wash your hands with soap before touching your eyes, nose or mouth since that will be the entry point of the virus. As long as we are not being complacent and stay guard for our own safety as well as others, we believe that we can control the spread.

Just do your parts and be safe!

Regardless of the situation, we ourselves must continue with the preventive guideline until the vaccine cure is made available. So, no matter how much the situation has changed, we must never be complacent as it is very important to keep ourselves & others to be safe against COVID-19. The Government will base on the current trend and manage accordingly to the situation as they ease on restrictions but to us, we must never neglect the basic preventive measures that needed to be followed. At least life will be a little better with lesser restrictions and businesses can resume with safeguards. It is vital that we make appoint that no one should neglect those basic guideline that will prevent human to human transmission.

Like the saying goes: Better safe than sorry!

Once again we like to stress on these basic measures that we all should continue doing until the vaccine cure is made available to us. 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.
