Wise decision needed for election

Election is about candidates who are capable to sustain a good and stable government that will help the people of Singapore into the future where we will face challenges. We need to understand that new candidates are being nurtured to replace the current MPs who are stepping down. We need to vote for candidates who are reliable to have long term strategy and ideas to help building Singapore for the good of the people into the future. Candidates in selection will need to have a good rapport as a group to brainstorm what will be best route for all Singaporeans and building our country towards the goals. It has to come with plans ahead in time for at least 5 to 10 years to mould our country with clear objectives as to benefits Singaporeans.

We as the older generations have benefited from the Government who have brought us where we are now so we also hope that the new group of candidates will continue the good work in helping the younger generations into the future. We need to give a strong mandate of approval so that the people of Singapore can continue to appreciate the effort by our Government in building our beautiful garden where we live. Though we are just a tiny red dot in the world map, our Government have transform it into a beautiful garden city where we appreciate in our hearts. We are indeed very happy with our Singapore’s current political stability and looking forward having it to continue in the future.

We need people to vote with a clear mind as not to be influenced by emotions which might be the wrong decision. We have to look into a bigger picture as who will be able to help Singapore to move into the future with strategic plans and guidelines. We may have encountered many various obstacles and unhappiness in life but decision as who will be the right candidates will be vital to our country. Make your vote counts as Singaporeans need a strong mandate for the Government to continue the good work of transforming our country.

As everyone is getting excited over the current election on 10 July 2020, we must bear in mind that our choice of having a group of true leaders to guide the people of Singapore into the future that matters. Please be clear headed about who you should be voting as leaders of our country to bring prosperity and progress as we are just a tiny red dot in the world map.

We can understand the new batch of younger leaders are being groomed to take over the older generation leaders which will be capable of handling difficult tasks and moulding our country for better future. It takes years of training and guidance to be true leaders and that is why we need candidates who are already equipped with such training. On top of that, we require leaders to have 100% commitment as our Government to handle all kind of situations and provide solutions to resolve any future obstacles. They will need to pave the way as to develop our country to attract more investors to build up our economy especially now with the COVID-19 pandemic issue. Let us all vote for the right candidates so that our Government can proceed to handle the COVID-19 pandemic as well as our economy which is badly affected.

Do the right vote and we will have a strong Government to lead us into the future. Every vote counts and do not vote based on anger or jealousy as well as emotions which can affect your decision. We sincerely hope everyone will make the wise choice in voting as we all want a strong & decisive Government to help tackling problems & issues domestic as well as foreign.

Back to COVID-19 pandemic which is still dangerous as we read that today there are already 10,803,599 cases worldwide with 518,968 deaths. We are fortunate that our Government had taken the correct measures to control the situation. Please do abide to the simple preventive measures of wearing masks & do social distancing while in public. In addition, please wash your hands with soap regularly especially before touching your eyes, nose and mouth as it will be the entry point for the virus into your body. Help yourself as you can help others to avoid getting this infection. Everyone should be doing their parts to avoid any human to human transmission. Every bit of effort by each and every one of us makes a great difference in bringing down the infection rates.

Like any Singaporeans, we always like to be a little more Kiasu & Kiasi in this circumstances and hope you will also be like that to handle this virus crisis.

Lastly, never take things for granted as our country current achievements are from the hardworking government that have been serving us and we should continue to endorse and appreciate for what they had done for the people of Singapore. Thumbs up!

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

Right choice towards COVID-19

Another sad day as we read about the infection rates worldwide is now 8,257,885 cases while the death rates is now 445,986 cases. The numbers seem to be increasing even though there are measures in place where people can do something about it to help eliminate further spreading. So it seems that even though we know & understand the need to be in safe distancing & wearing masks while in public but there will be some people who are defiance to abide simple guideline. Guess it is somehow nearly impossible to totally eradicate this virus until we get the vaccine cure or prevention. It is hard to predict how individual mind works as there tend to be resistance in all kind of situations in life. We can never get 100% cooperation from people to agree with any sort of proposes or ideas. We have to deal with it the best we can to move on in life.

You decide your destiny of fate in life but think of others before you ignore safety measures.

Phase 2 in Singapore

COVID-19 is still very much ALIVE!

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.

What should you be doing against COVID-19?

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.

Opening Phase 2 on 19 June 2020, what will be the impact?

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! Be a little Kiasu & Kiasi will save lives!

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!
