A Total TaiTai Tale

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

Today was the day we were supposed to fly to France for our summer vacation.

It was a rebooking made a year ago by the company since we weren’t leaving Singapore with J at the end of our posting and they offered to reschedule the ticket.

A year ago we thought we could use this ticket but as the months passed we realized that we wouldn’t be able to leave and be certain we would be allowed back in Singapore in time for the start of the last school year.

So once again we are rescheduling, one last time, this flight for June 2022.

PS: I had planned to make a trip to Changi Airport and spend some time at The Jewel but it’s closed, so we cannot even pretend we were taking a trip to nowhere!

Singapore: We have 20 new Covid-19 cases in the community… so plans to ease the rules on June 21 are being relooked and we are evaluating the “timing and scope” of Singapore’s reopening, given the “major new cluster”

France: We are currently down to 3,000+ new cases so we are ending Covid curfew earlier and wearing masks outdoor is no longer mandatory from June 21.

Me: Ordering a new shipment of my non-booze booze.

FYI: Yesterday, June 16, France had 44 coronavirus deaths (according to one source). Singapore had 34 coronavirus death… in TOTAL since the beginning of the pandemic. #StaySafe. #StaySane.

Can we BE more Singaporean?

Saving the economy, one hawker sellers at a time. At $2-4 per meal we shouldn’t go bankrupt anytime soon 😂

So thoughtful but awaiting June 13th patiently so we can enjoy dining out and just plain going out in group of more than 2 people. (finger crossed)

It’s all about celebrating small victories*

Most condos have closed their pools, mostly because it’s hard to comply with all the restrictions (strict number of people in the pool, distance between groups of 2, etc).

But the pools (we have 2 big ones and 3 small ones) at our condominium haven’t been closed because so far people have been pretty good and know it can change very quickly.

I don’t even go to the pool (I know totally wasted on me but I do love the whole common area of our condominium) but I’m happy for all the people who do go and all the kiddos who need it to distract them from HBL and summer vacation soon.

*Not just during a pandemic though

We usually go to the hawkers center for lunch on Sunday. We couldn’t stay and eat there this week (and until 13th of June) but I made sure to still support the hawkers because they are the one who are hit the hardest. With meal for less than S$5 it’s hard to justify a delivery if you don’t live nearby.

It’s Friday and we survived week #1 of this-is-not-a-lockdown-aka-circuit-breaker.

I’d better start digging into old pictures because I’m starting to bore myself with the latest posts 😂

Realized this morning that I hadn’t left the apartment since Friday afternoon so put on my active wear and went on a little walk… initially just around the condo, then decided to go down the street and I ended up at the Botanical Gardens🤷‍♀️.

The hardest part is starting.

PS: realized as I was leaving the gardens that I’d better grab a photo so I would have something to talk/post about 😂 not the best representation of said gardens but I wasn’t going to go around another time (remember I had started this whole thing with just a walk around the condo 🙄)
