SHN doesn't work because the first line of defense at the immigration was compromised and penetrated.    The weakest link at the airport is the toilet.  I suspect that is where the cleaners and t

Not surprised at all,  would be surprise if we dont get a CB 2.0.

 

From day one,  i dont believe they can handle well. While the border with JB are closed but our door are still open very big, from last september,  everyday there are tons of imported cases, coming to visit family or coming to treat covid? What job cannot wait that we must let them come in now? What sporting event is so important that we need to  let them come in? Did we really detect each and everyone of them since PRC test are not 100% accurate. Even if we do,  they are still a burden on our medical resources and especially those doctors and nurses. I hope we are making them to pay full medical cost without any subsidies.

 

Incapable team combine with complacency from the people. Who still wear mask in gym? You can easily see tons of people mostly the elderly not wearing mask at all or exposing their fucking nose to the whole world. . No more social distancing as there are no more social ambassador around,  that is the mentality for many. 

 

Lets pray in our respective religion,  we need lots of good luck.

It a shame the government was so slow to order vaccine that they couldn't get enough, much easier to spread fake news about vaccine and sit back not doing it.

The irony of the rise of covid infections in Singapore is that the cluster started in a hospital.

 

but we will never learn what went wrong...

Never know what went wrong because the Dictatorship will never tell, can't trust the people with information.

Phase 1 is not the same as the CB, right?

 

Phase 1, no dine in, must tabao. Cinemas also not opened.

If CB2.0 comes, I wont be surprise. As much as we manage to "control" our infection, its still very leaky... a little bit like filter paper.

 

And we cant close our country off. Our economy depends on being open, multiracial, metropolitan with stable government. 

 

So, either we supplement our workforce with foreigners or everyone of us get married and churn out like five babies per family and when they grow up participate in the economy.

I am so sorry to hear these news.  

It seems that Singapore is moving in opposite direction to America.

These days gyms here are fully open, and I am one of the fewer ones who wear a mask there.

 

Social gathering size cut to 5 people!!   Well... at lest this still leaves the opportunity for very nice threesomes. :)

What will happen to swimming pools now? I have not swam since phase 1 and thinking of going back to swim recently. Now it seems will be restrictive to swim again.

I always wear a mask while at the gym. I have become so proficient at it, that I do not even feel wozzy or out of breath.

And get this, once I started wearing masks at the gym, I never fell ill or got mild flu-like symptoms like stuffy or runny nose.

The mask helped protect me from the cold aircon air or for whatever reason.

Masks work.

Sanitaizing your hands often, that works too. 

 

What I fail to understand is: why focus on gyms when not a single infection was detected at fitness centres?

I understand it is a precaution, then what about other establishments?

Malls, bars, cafes, beauty salons, stores etc ect.

What makes them immune to infection?

Why single out on gyms?

 

Why not do a blanket closure if you are truly concerned and want to nip this at the bud? 

It does not make sense to me. 

Just like the government allowing these foreigners to continue to come in all these months, I knew the breach would be imminent. 

Even if you use your kneecaps to think, the inevitable conclusion will still come to you.

 

4G is a failure.

I know some friends are hoping CB will be back!

Yeah, CB days saw empty train rides. Heavenly. 

These days, the MRT trains are still packed. Most commuters are no longer concerned about social distancing. I gently reminded a few fellow passengers to spread out and not congregate and verbal altercations ensued. They were standing so close to me.

I refused to stay and bicker so I walked away to find a quieter and emptier spot. 

No point arguing with them.

"Australia, Brunei, mainland China, New Zealand, Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Macao."

These countries will only need to serve 14 SHN instead of 21 days.

See, you shouldn't do that. Everyone should be quarantined for 21 days.

Have they not learnt from their mistake?

This virus mutates and travels fast. You cannot be sure these 7 countries have not been breached. 

4G failure again.

Gym aircon air is very dirty! All the viruses, bacteria and germs from respiration, pespiration saliva and bodily secretions regurgitated ad nauseam within a closed system. I wonder if they ever clean their aircon filters.

It is worse than you think.

From Aust, Brunei, NZ, TW, CN --> only need to have negative test on arrival.  There is no SHN requirement.

look people.. just follow the news religiously, don't break the rules, be obessed in wearing ur face masks (disposable mask) have to be changed every 4hrs.. reuseable face masks, please change daily. And have it washed. bring a bottle of hand sanitizers everywhere u go. wash ur hands regularly, changed ur clothes daily, be obessed with ur own personal hygiene & health. not feeling well, go to a gp, stay at home, self quarantine. please, its extremely impt everyone follows the game plan. if not we could face cb 2.0 till end of the yr.

 

the govt did admitted the fact that there's a "patient zero" whom might have slipped thru the net.. and this person ( male / female) is going around whether symptomatic or not.. this person could have visited TTSH (thus the cluster) and this person have been going thru the malls and whatever nots.. so u dunnoe who is infected around u.. treat anyone & everyone u know as a positive patient mindset.

 

 u know the train cabin is crowded.. move to another one or wait for the next trip. since 08th onwards CB 2.0 is back.. office workers, please kindly work from home. stocked up what is necessary, dun go chiong the supermarkets, raid the shelves for maggi mee, mineral water & toilet rolls like the previous times.. avoid going to crowded malls, etc.

Guest Salary Worker

Can any company survive another round of CB? Will business be affected? More retrenchment coming? Any news update from your company with regards to this new tight measurements again?

 

Although boss said no retrenchment and only tight manpower. But I have to prepare for the worst. I might be 2nd or third inline to be layoff incase it takes a worst turn. If only I am not a salary worker that have to be at the mercy of others. 

 

Sometimes I feel that being me right now is good. I dont have children or spouse or family to raise. Just parents to take care only. Imagine my colleague who has family to raise. He said he will jump off from the building jokingly. I only managed to give a small half open smile. With or without family to raise, losing a job still quite a stress. 

 

Maybe this is part and parcel of life. But still I cant help to lament, What do you want from us God? Isn't it enough already? You create us and give us all these tests. What do you want to test us? I want to throw the white flag. I admit I failed in this life and all the tests. I don't want to take anymore.  Can I surrender now? I feel that no need to fight anymore or prove anything, I am so at ease. Free. No stress.

Kinda move reading this post.  While reality is hard, the only thing is to pray that all will be well.   Hope there is always light at the end of the tunnel.  Hope when one door is closed, another shall open with better opportunities.

 

Love your last paragraph.  Love the word 'surrender'.  Guess, all we can do is to keep on praying.   Thank you for sharing.

The air in gym often stinks, is dank and musty,  filled with BO. Outdoor exercise better.

 

You are more conscious than Americans,  and here gyms have gone into lengths to improve their air filtering and circulation.  In reality, it does not matter the stinking, the body odors.  What matters is the absence of aerosol droplets that can carry the virus.  There are some positives to the gym environment, like most of the participants are strong, healthy individuals, not those with much pre-existing conditions, old (with exceptions), diseased.  And also some negatives: after heavy exercise people have to breathe very strong, and this is a reason many don't use or take off their masks and project their breaths far out.

 

Maybe it is time again to find the best and most practical exercises to do at home.

Good idea.  To stock up good non-perishables like bags of lentils and beans, miscellaneous canned vegetables, and if having a larger freezer, plenty of frozen vegetables. And for protein, some big containers of whey protein if it is not too expensive.

I have 1 empty room in my 3 room HDB.  I plan to convert it into an exercise room by installing pull up and sit up bar and do yoga there.  Now everywhere is not safe, including gym.  Want to cruise, there are better place to cruise from the internet.   I hope I didn't miss anything.

Why does the person on FB needs to be told that? I didn't hear anything mentioned by the person talking in the video about race.  If I'm not mistaken the one who mentioned 'indian' was a poster here in BW.  

 

You can tell the videoer is of  Chinese descent, even when the video didn't show him? That's like claiming someone is white English cos he speaks speak English.

 

Lastly, passengers exiting a plane from Bangladesh, need NOT always be a Bangladeshi.  I can't tell what their nationalities are from their visual image.

Of course you'll miss a lot. Don't kid yourself. That's part of the consequences of staying in your room.
