If you had been to Taipei Zoo, please do share with us your comments as we love to hear from you.

Side note:

Even after the Circuit Breaker had lifted, we still see some cases of community infections. We sincerely hope that people will have the TraceTogether app to enable the Government agencies to do a much better job of tracing the source of these cases rather than having it as unknown cases which will hinder the control of spreading. It is terrible when we do not know who are the ones having the infection and spreading. Please be cooperative and do your part as not to expose this virus to others by wearing masks & social distancing. If unwell with the symptoms of fever, cough and hard to breathe, please consult a doctor to verify your situation.

We truly believe that when each and every single person puts in a little effort to keep themselves safe, it will benefit the entire community. Just simply abide to the simple guideline of protecting yourself as well as loved ones from getting this infection. In this world, we are sad to learn that even though we do know what to do as to avert this disaster as well as continuation of spreading but some people simply ignore this warning and do what they like instead. Nevertheless, we ourselves should not be deter with their actions instead help to spread the clear message of doing good for everyone with our actions. We believe we can touch their hearts with our sincerity!

As of today we checked it is already 6,698,370 cases of infections worldwide with the death rates of 393,142. A big IF we had taken all necessary precautions and safety measures then this might not be the case of having so many deaths worldwide. We are also sadden to read about country that still do not see the potential danger since it has not be well under control with the spread. Please do take a good look at this situation and help people to survive this ordeal with all proper measures and control. Kindly do not take this lightly as it is still far from under control as the number of cases are rising worldwide. Measures must be put in place to deter people from infecting others without knowing. Enforcement is important in order to maintain a control of this spreading! We need everyone to understand that without the vaccine cure, this will still be a threat to every person in the world.

Once again, we hope people will take these measures as to safeguard themselves and others to be free from infection. Let us do our parts together and be cooperative to keep ourselves free from virus today!

  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.

Side Note:

It sadden us to read about the COVID-19 pandemic had already infected more than 6 millions people worldwide and causing more than 300 thousands of deaths as a result. This is indeed the worst news in history for a pandemic that is causing so many deaths.

Why is it continuing at this rate of infection?

One simple answer we can think of is people are still not taking it seriously due to misinformation or just being defiant about it. We understand about the danger of not getting the right signal about how bad this virus can cause harm to individual when not taking all the necessary preventive measures to safeguard against infection. The right message can be obtained from all Government agencies worldwide and need to take action in order to avoid having the infections.

Simple guideline of social distancing and wearing masks in public but yet many are still not serious about it. Why? Guess some people are reading from a mix source of information that had confused their thoughts about what will be the right thing to do. Also there will be people who just refuse to obey the rules and do whatever they feel like doing. We presume that is one of the reasons why we are still having the rise in numbers for infections worldwide. As we had mentioned many times since the COVID-19 had announced as pandemic, we just need to do at least ONE month of isolation for the entire country as to eliminate the human to human transmission and slowly allowing it to die off. Unfortunately, this is not done by 100% people in the country month after month as we can see it had dragged for the last few months since the disease started in December 2019.

Resistance to abide the guideline is the main cause of COVID-19 to persist on for many months. It is a very tough job for all Government agencies to handle the situation when not 100% people are willing to abide the simple rule of engagement. This is indeed sad and very disheartening when we know how serious it can be affecting individual’s health. Well, guess for all those who clearly understand the danger and having the right knowledge of preventive measures to do the right thing. We can only hope for the best outcome and hopefully those who are resistance about following the rules, do not get the infection to spread around us.

As we understand that countries are starting to ease on restrictions as there are signs of improvement but we must never be complacent about it since the virus is still very much alive and please continue to be vigilant so as not to spread this virus to others & loved ones. We all need to do our parts even though some may not do so. Every single bit of effort carry out by individual makes a difference. We must try to persuade those who may still be resistance about this and change their mindset as it is for the good of others!

We are happy to hear about 30 countries are sharing resources and information with regards to COVID-19 as this will indeed benefit the entire world. Sharing of information about their researches of producing vaccines can be helpful to get result sooner rather than later. No matter when we will have the vaccine, every single person in the world should maintain the basic rule of doing social distancing and wearing masks while in public. Of course we must forget about personal hygiene like washing hands with soap frequently especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth since this is known to be the entry point for this COVID-19. Do your part to keep everyone safe and sound.

Lastly, this will be our advice for cure currently as to avoid being infected by COVID-19. Remember, every bit counts in prevention!

  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.

Visiting Longshan Temple in Taipei

Another of our great adventure while traveling in Taipei for vacation. We always loved to venture to places of interests that may not be viewed as one though. It was unfortunate that we encountered rainfall due to the aftermath of the typhoon occurred a week ago. Anyway, we still could make our way to visit some of these lovely places and enjoyed some nice meals along the way.

That’s all for today as we will be back again another day for more articles and photographs for our travel adventure. If you had been to this place, please kindly do share with us your comments as we love to hear them.

Side Note:

What our founding father Lee Kuan Yew had said these words: “Never be depressed, never be deflated by setbacks.”

With the current situation of COVID-19 pandemic, all Singaporeans should face it together as a nation and not to be deflated by setbacks. We know that everyone is doing their best to face this danger together as one people! It needs the cooperation of every single human being if we want to win the war against COVID-19. It takes just one bad apple that will create havoc since the spreading will be from human to human. Only with 100% people with true commitment to fight against this virus together then we shall emerge victory!

Another nice saying by our founding father Lee Kuan Yew was: Singapore’s success to a one of the nation’s greatest strengths – “its willingness to face reality.”

We must each bear in mind of what he had said and learn from it. Though we are facing tough times ahead but with our will as one nation, we will prevail against all odds. We understand the danger of COVID-19 pandemic and it is our duties to participate in cooperation of safety concern between one another with guidelines to abide. We need to do basic tasks like wearing masks and social distancing while in public as well as washing hands with soap frequently before touching your nose, mouth or eyes. It will be your own personal hygiene that will help to avoid getting the infection. We need to do our parts as to avoid the transmission of the virus from human to human.

To fight against this virus is every individual’s job as the onus is not just the Government. Our Government can help to give advice but we are the people who need to carry out the important task of abiding to the rules of engagement that is wearing masks & doing social distancing while in public. Of course during the course of the situation, things might not turn out to be favorable but we must not be quick to point fingers and blame for it. This pandemic is new and sudden, therefore there is no clear solution as how it should be carried out and what will be the best way for good outcome. It is like a sort of trial and error’s situation but with much considerations. From what we see, the current cure for the situation is to maintain with wearing masks and doing social distancing in public. This will help to reduce further spreading of this deadly virus. This advice is needed to be taken seriously as we do not want another wave of attack by COVID-19.

Never be complacent even though the situation has started to ease down. Please continue to be vigilant as the whole world is fighting against this pandemic. It might take a year or longer before things to get better but our efforts can save lives. Just continue doing the right thing as we move ahead in life.

Here are some safety tips we need to continue doing as to keep ourselves to be safe without infecting others.

  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.
