A Total TaiTai Tale

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



It’s over.

It’s all gone.

It was so much part of our life that I didn’t even think of taking a picture of it.

When I arrived this morning, the small maze of barriers leading to the Check-in stations wasn’t there anymore.

As I was climbing the stairs after stepping out of the MRT car, I took my phone out of my bag and opened the TraceTogether app to scan the QR that would show my vaccination status and thus allowing me to enter. I was prepared like I have been for the past 2 years.

It’s an automatic gesture as soon as we approach any mall/store/restaurant/bar/cinema/etc we are prepared to show our little swimming otter. We actually keep our phone in our hands because it’s easier: checking in checking out, checking in, checking out, etc etc.

Today Tuesday 29th April I have a little tears for all the people who just lost their job making sure we were compliant with the measures, but frankly they haven’t cared much for the past couple of weeks if I must say!

But that’s not all… there is also: No more group size limit on social gathering and household visit. No more self distancing. No more vaccination differentiation (except for large event, F&B). No more capacity limit. And a lot more “No more”. The Coronavirus/Covid-19 saga in Singapore thru my eyes can be read here: https://www.tumblr.com/tagged/c%26jfiguringoutcoronavirus?sort=top

Going to Chinese HotPot seems to be our family “last dinner before we leave Asia” tradition.

This will most likely be daughter last dinner in Singapore (I would never ever say 100% sure because that’s what we thought in December 😉).



26-Apr-2022: D-54 before departure

With the departure approaching we are starting to have One-Last-Time to-do list, and food is an important part of that list, well especially in Asia, we didn’t have one for Aberdeen and stavanger 😉.

We still remember our list from our 2 Beijng departure, and we had agreed that the very last meal would be hot pot. This time we are toying with either doing Chicken rice for example at a hawker center because it’s quintessential Singapore or keeping with the hot pot tradition. 🤔


~~~Just a little FYI So for my last 200 days in Singapore I have decided to reblog, in no special order, a post from the 6 years I will have spent on the Little Red Dot. PS: you will then get 2 posts a day!!~~~
