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.
  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 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.

Beef Set in Taiwan

Dinner at restaurant

Everywhere we traveled to different countries, it was our way of finding some nice and yet delicious meals that could fill our stomach. We kind of love those food where we could find here in Taiwan which are quite similar to what we can have in Singapore with a slight difference in taste. Having vacation for us is the way of de-stress ourselves from the hectic working environment. It is one of our ways of letting steam out in a sense.

Well, that’s all the pictures to be shown for the nice dinner meals we had at this restaurant. If you had been to this place in Taiwan, why not share with us your comments as we love to hear them. It is always our idea of going to different countries in the world and tasting the same type of food from Singapore and comparing it with the countries we had traveled. It is kind of interesting to actually taste some kind of difference even though it maybe the same dishes. Guess it will be dependent on the Chef as well as the ingredients being used. We are kind of food lovers when traveling to different countries.

Till the next article, we hope to share more with you and enjoy your day!
