Wondering when this little old security guard will be out of work because we won’t have to check in and out of public spaces.

It’s been a while since I’ve had a little rant about those freaking measures.

I’m pretty easy. I don’t like having to wear a mask all the time but I can live with it for the time being. Checking in and out of public places are not the most convenient, because one it reduces the number of access points and two is just freaking annoying when you are in and out of stores. But again a minor annoyance.

However we were all expecting some relaxation in the measures when Chinese New Year festivities would end. Well the new softening of the measures are out.

A few more VTL (Vaccinated Travel Lane) countries added to the list; half of Singapore will apparently be visiting Cambodia and Angkor Wat in the next few weeks. Really glad for them, the tourists and the country but it doesn’t really help with daily life in Singapore.

What changes for me personally is that I can now wash my hands in the public bathroom next to a stranger (every other lavatory was crossed off until now), men can also pee next to a stranger (same deal than the lavatories) and I don’t have to keep 1 meter away when I seat next to a stranger on a public bench BUT I still cannot be in group larger than 5 outside or invite more than 5 persons in my home 😱.

A year ago and for a grand total of 127 days (from December 28 until May 7) our group size was at 8. It was still restrictive but if I go down the comparaison line (and I know that comparaison is the thief of joy 🙄) I’d rather be limited to 8 than 5. No limit would be better but let’s not go to wishful thinking craziness!!!

I’m still holding hope that they realize how ridiculous this is and lift the 5-person rule in time for my next walk challenge with my Let’s Cross the Island from North to South and East to West group of ladies next month.

I’ll keep you posted. I have less than 125 days and I really hope I won’t have another rant to post.

ps: believe me this is a mild rant compare to what you could read online 😉
