A Total TaiTai Tale

Tale of a Total TaiTai who was in Beijing & Beyond and is now in Singapore & Surroundings!

Month: May, 2020

On the last day of the month of May which was Mental Health Month.

We survived yet again another month of “New Normal”

Breathe In, Breathe Out. #Meditation

And remember “Don’t Sweat The Small Stuff, & It’s All Small Stuff (Richard Carlson)

For the third time since the start of the pandemic, the Singapore government is distributing a mask, free of charge, to each Singapore resident.

This time they are available 24/7 via vending machine. (And before you ask…. you need your national/foreign ID to collect)

First round in end of February & Second round in April.

We are all going to end up at AA and/or Weight Watcher meetings after the end of the lockdown.

Lemon Meringue Pie from Félicité courtesy of hubby’s boss and discovering yet again some new cocktails, this time from Laiba.

While I enjoy the rooftops Happy Hour with the girls, I have to say I really like the cocktails I can serve myself at home on my balcony. This single serving cocktail bottle will last me at least for 3 evenings. What can I say I’m a cheap date ;-).

We take physical distancing very seriously at home. Doing zoom call within ourselves 🙄😂.

They don’t use Zoom at work (they use Microsoft Team) so he needed to do a try out before the interview he was doing.

Just in case we would forget…

Frankly, compared to a lot of my friends or what I read on different forums I’m doing fine.

Being an introvert I don’t suffer as much as my extrovert friends. Doesn’t mean I wouldn’t mind a cup of coffee or a lunch in person. Hubby likes working from home and while the kiddos miss their friends they are not bouncing off the walls or crying either. Putting everything in perspective, there are a lot more people suffering a lot more.

Starting week 11 for us.

Just a week ago we thought it would be our last week. We will be stacking up at least another 4 on top of next week.

At this stage you don’t even pretend to make an effort for Zoom meeting anymore.

PS: I’m in my PJ. There are shorts. It’s freaking hot in Singapore. Just saying before I start receiving messages. 🙄😉

Monday Murals Reminiscing Old Changi Days by Yip Yew Chong

This 37m long mural at Changi Airport Terminal 4 Basement level reminisces the old Changi days before Changi Airport was built in 1970s. From aeroplane-watching at Changi beach, to peeking over the fence of the Royal Air Force Station; From playing ‘tarik upih’ with village kids, to shopping and dining at the variety of shophouses lining Changi Village; The mural transports you to a charming old world brimming with new aspirations.

Instead of taking a picture of the long mural on each side of the corridor I decided to take a picture of each panel and post them over a longer period of time. The murals are so full of details it seems like a waste of the artist work to not give it justice.

My currently state of mind.

What day is it already? Is it the weekend yet? Oh you means it’s over already?

PS: this is a typical Chinese calendar (the kind you tear off the page each day). I love them they are full of information of the day (if you can read them 😜)

I’ll classify this under: Things you try when you have way too much time on your hands and watch endless useless things 😉
