It’s coming to 18 months since the COVID-19 pandemic started. From a nameless virus to “China” virus to finally having a scientific name that everyone knows worldwide. I think it’s famous than anything at the moment but for al the wrong reasons.
Over the past year, all different forms of humanity has been on display, whether the good or the ugly. Racial discrimination has been the hot topic in the USA with the Asian Americans community being in the news headlines pretty often. Hopefully with a bill passed in Senate and better understanding of the disease, things will slowly get better over time although don’t expect things to change overnight.
However, it seems like a new form of nation discrimination is being suggested at the moment with countries and even the WHO asking the wealthier and developed country to contribute to the COVAX cause to supply desperately needed vaccines to the the less developed countries in their fight to overcome the overwhelming pandemic. Notwithstanding, this is also a time where nations has gone all out to support each other as the same time. This is clearly seen in the recent outpouring of support to India during their worse wave of the COVID-19 outbreak thus far.
Now is a good time for everyone to really take a step back and think about how best to help and overcome the current situation. It’s no longer how I can help my country, it’s more like how we can all come together and help everyone. There is no best fit solution. Like what our minister said earlier, nobody is safe until everyone is safe.
Let’s do all do our part and embrace this new normal and hopefully overcome this current situation in order to recover some sense of normality soon.
Finally saw an application for the public to use for the age old question of “what to eat”. Would be a very good idea for someone to come up with an app with all the mall dining choices and be able to localise it within the app. Then with a simple click, a random choice will be generated. A simple use will also be for those going on food hunt. Gonna be interesting to create a social website to incorporate all the foodies and food places in Singapore for all to enjoy. Any partners?
Just realised it’s been more than 1 year since a post. Things have changed so dramatically, not just in locally but the entire world as well. Life has been tough and is going to be tough while everyone is trying to get used to the new norm. But people have toughed through adversities throughout known history and will get through this one again.
Was at this place for the Nth time since it opened but still managed to capture different things about the place. Had a chance to catch the vortex fountain performance which was really amazing although was splashed with water. Was taking a video but decided to take some stills and I think it’s much better.
Sometimes, it’s better to stop a while and enjoy the moment rather than just keep moving aimlessly. Just a realisation.
Managed to visit this new iconic building in Singapore that was recently opened. This building, situated next to the airport is meant to push up Tourism and get visitors as well as locals to spend. Unlike other most other countries, Singapore Changi Airport is build more to resemble a huge shopping centre than an airport. Weekends means trips to the airport with a huge space to roam about in cramped Singapore. At 1.3billion
dollars, it shows how much the airport authorities are willing to pay and how confident they are. With another terminal coming up and another dedicated mass rapid transport, things are sure to get better with years to come. Have you been there yet?
Just visited this newly opened park in the west of Singapore. It is really amazing work landscape architects and landscapers have done to this place. It brings it totally new class of nature into this huge expanse. Super huge crowds as usual when something new opens in Singapore. But with the correct angle I suppose it’s possible to capture an amazing shot. 😁
Every beginning of the year, everyone will make resolutions and then review them at the end of year. I tried to do this 10 years ago but I just gave up and everything seems to repeat itself. Nothing has changed much in the last 10 years. In fact, it seems like it has been getting harder to get by as each year progresses. Maybe it’s all about the economy, political unrest and natural disasters that everyone has been talking about. But I think it’s still all in the mind. If you don’t work hard then nothing will come to you. I suppose I have not worked hard enough. People also say that the kind will be rewarded. I don’t think I have done any misdeeds but I suppose that I have not been kind enough. Another year and I am still looking for the light at the end of the tunnel. Maybe I am not looking hard enough. Sigh…
Went through a series of events which left me quite confused and stressed this week. Was presented with 2 business opportunities to join as partners at two different startups. Wondering if I should take it cos I’m not sure of I’m up to it and if I can handle it. Really going into the most uncomfortable zone. Decided to this weekend to ponder over it. Not sure if how other will handle this situation. Opportunities are not easy to come by startups are very challenging if you’re really just starting up. Still have not come to a concrete decision but just taking this time to chill at one of my favourite old time cafe. How’s your week been like?
Was out for lunch on a very hot Sunday and saw this clear blue sky. Not a common sight in sunny Singapore where humidity is generally pretty high. Chases away the blues that was awaiting on Monday. Happy I got through the Monday well. Now just for the rest of the week. Have a great week everyone.
Finally got a chance to finally sit down and chill over a slow and relaxing weekend. It isy first time trying out this cafe chain and this brace in the middle of the CBD is really very chill on a weekend. The food is OK but the coffee was quite good. Definitely a good place to chill if you’re alone. Have a great weekend everyone.
