  • Public Transport Safety Tips for the COVID-19 Pandemic

    COVID-19 continues to be a significant impact on our lives, with the number of cases on the rise again recently. With many out there already traveling to their workplaces to pull through these tough times, public transport commuting is still the top mode of transport to commute to and from our destinations, whether it is work, school. In addition to that, due to the travel restrictions imposed, there might be more traveling by buses and trains now as people might also use public transport to travel to the various domestic recreation sites to cure their holiday blues, especially in dense cities like Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta, and London.  To help you get that extra peace of mind, here are some tips for you to stay as safe as much as you can while traveling on Public Transport in this COVID-19 pandemic.   Alternative modes of transport Image Source: Photo by Angelo Pantazis on Unsplash Choosing a different mode of transport where you will be less likely to come into close proximity with others is a great way to start. This will not only benefit you, but it will also lessen the pressure and the number of people taking public transport. The lesser contact, the better. Walk or Cycle Think about walking or cycling to your destinations if you can or when they are closeby. Remember to keep a distance between you and others around you at all times. Car-Sharing If you want to get somewhere fast, Car rentals and Car-sharing are a viable option as they are now more accessible than ever. Always sanitize the car before and after you use it and make sure the cabin is well ventilated during your journey to minimize the risks. You could argue that taxis, Grab, uber, or gojek do the same but, by renting and driving the cars yourself, you are staying in your own safety bubble, sparing you and the cab drivers with more risks.    Travel Off-peak Image Source: Photo by JOSHUA COLEMAN on Unsplash Peak hours in Public Transportation means more people, which also means that you will come into contact with many people in packed trains and buses, making their way to and from work or school. Choose to travel during off-peak hours whenever you can, leave your house earlier in the morning, or make your way home later in the evening. A bonus to doing this is that if you do choose to travel during the off-peak hours, your journey will not only be that little bit safer, but it will also be a bit more peaceful as well.   Plan your Journey Image Source: Photo by Jeremy Downes on Unsplash Before actually setting out to your destinations, plan ahead, and choose your routes carefully. Take the most direct routes that lead to your destination to minimize the time you spend outside. Avoid going to and through places where you know are generally busy, you can alight a stop before your intended station if you know there are more people there. Another thing to consider when planning your journey is that you could walk for more parts of your trip.   Contactless Technology Image Source: Photo by Mika Baumeister on Unsplash Minimize your contact with everything when you are out and about. Go contactless with your purchases by using contactless payments such as ApplePay, GooglePay, or any contactless cards available. Where possible, use your mobile phones when topping-up or purchasing tickets by doing the transactions through the respective mobile apps.   Personal Protection Image Source: Photo by Anshu A on Unsplash It has to go without saying that you should always follow the standard safety measures such as wearing a mask at all times and maintaining a safe distance between you and the next person. Safe distancing might be a hard thing to do when traveling on a packed bus or train, but whenever possible, always try to distance yourself from the next person. Bring a hand sanitizer with you when using public transport. Clean your hands after alighting as you may have used the handrails or touched some other parts of the vehicle. Due to the nature of the virus spreading through droplets, try not to speak during the commute (even if you’re already wearing a mask). If you are traveling overseas, check out our past blog “Planning To Travel Soon? Here Are 10 Travel Safety Tips For You To Know” for travel specific tips.   Safety Checklist Image Source: Photo by Glenn Carstens-Peters on Unsplash In summary here is a checklist of what you should ask yourself whenever you plan to go out on Public Transport: When is the best time for me to make my way there? Can I walk or cycle there? Am I taking the most direct and fastest route? Are there a lot of people on my route? / Is it busy? Are there any alternative routes with lesser people? Can I take any other alternative modes of transportation?  COVID-19 is a complex virus that we are all still trying to understand. These traveling tips are just precautionary measures to help you minimize the risks as much as you can whenever you are traveling around domestically. Of course, staying at home as much as possible is still the best, we understand that sometimes we really have to get out of the house to attend to something. Stay Safe!...

  • Indonesia's Independence Day 2020: Things to Look Out For This Independence Day

    Indonesia will celebrate its national day next week on 17 August. The biggest archipelago country in the ASEAN region is going to enjoy its 75th year of independence after being under Dutch colonial rule for 350 years. Indonesia’s capital city, Jakarta, is showing its joy as many national flags are bring waived in the streets. With COVID-19 positive cases increasing day by day in the country, the pandemic is still a looming threat to Indonesia and the rest of the world. Indonesians have fought hard to gain their independence, and now they fight against this deadly virus. Next week will be a big day for Indonesia but we will never give up fighting the virus. Indonesians celebrate Independence Day by conducting several competitions that are very famous in the country that should not be missed. The health protocol is a primary thing to do, however. Everyone should wear their masks, face shields, wash their hands, and surely never forget to practice physical distancing.Here’s how Indonesians are celebrating their Independence Day in the new normal.   Celebrating from Home Image Source: What's New Indonesia In a pre-COVID, Indonesians will come from all over the country to attend the annual flag-raising ceremony in the Presidential Palace. Standing proud as they watch their national flag being raised high. This will then lead to the President’s speech to the nation. This year, with the safety measures in place, the celebrations will be taking a more modest approach, with most of the activities being moved online as gatherings are no longer allowed in order to lower the risk of infections. Citizens are not worried about missing out, as they will be able to catch the flag ceremony and celebrations in the safety of their homes as it will be broadcasted live on television and social platforms.   Independence Day Community Games Image Source: IDN Times Community games can still be held albeit at smaller scales with strict safety measures in place. This means that Indonesians can still enjoy their favorite games they always play during independence day. A long-standing tradition associated with Indonesians during independence day is surely the Cracker Eating Race or also known as “Lomba Makan Kerupuk,” which is a must in every Independence Day celebration. It is a game where adults or children will race each other to see who can finish their crackers first. This year, however, participants are required to keep a distance between one another as they play this game. The crackers will be hanged by a thread a couple of centimeters higher than the participants. All the participants will raise their heads to eat the crackers while having their hands tied behind their backs. It is a cheerful game as the participants will keep opening their mouths to chase the crackers that are wiggling around. It is a fun activity that will surely raise everyone’s spirit! Another game played by Indonesians during Independence day is the Sack Race. Similar to the Cracker Eating game, adults or children can join this competition. The participants will get inside a gunny sack. The race usually runs around a distance of 15 to 20 meters, the participants have to hop while holding the sack from the start to the finish line. Quite tiring, but yeah, it will always create a lively atmosphere with spectators cheering on to support their players. The race can be more challenging and joyful if the participants are required to wear a helmet while hopping! Want to give it a try?   Taking it to Social Media Image By: Photo by Nick Agus Arya on Unsplash During the pandemic, when many people are asked to stay at home, TikTok has been the go-to app for Indonesians to spend their free time. Indonesians could create video content that is so relatable with the current situation – COVID-19 awareness! Yes, we can still produce an exciting and creative video while reminding people to stay healthy and safe. Another way Indonesians are spreading the joy of their independence is through the internet by creating videos with the Independence Day theme. For example, uploading a video on Facebook or Youtube to tell the viewers about how grateful they are as trying to flatten the curve during the national celebration—sharing positive words of encouragement from their hearts to inspire others to do the same.   Mask Making Competition Image by: Photo by Vera Davidova on Unsplash Since face masks are the main protective equipment used during the current pandemic and have become one of the health protocols, it would be great if there was a mask designing competition this Independence day month. Where people of all ages can display their creativity by coloring and designing their masks. This competition can be an attraction for children to participate in the August race this year, it could even help in the fight against the pandemic. It will be very special (and safe!) because it could be conducted virtually to prevent the spread of the coronavirus in Indonesia. Even though the celebrations this year are being scaled down and will feel a little different from previous years of celebration, the spirit of independence still resonates with the nation, and it’s citizens where they are united to stand against the global pandemic. Happy 75th Birthday Indonesia! Stay healthy, and let’s flatten the curve!...

  • Magical Hygge Campsite: Japan's Princess Mononoke Campsite

    Japan is set to open a Hygge inspired glamping campsite in 2021. Hygge (pronounced as Hue-ga), is a Danish word which means "a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being". If that sounds like something you would enjoy, here’s a place worthy of a detour to the Inabe City while traveling on the Bullet Train between Kyoto and Nagoya. Image Source: henrik-innovation Located in the dense forest of Uga Valley in the Mie prefecture, the Hygge Circles Ugakei by Nordisk will be a breathtaking magical campsite surrounded by lush forests, waterfalls, and cool mountain streams. With its aesthetically pleasing looks, it is easy not to think that one of the key intent of this campsite is also to bring visitors closer to nature with environmental sustainability in mind. Riding on the waves of the ecotourism movement in Japan. Image Source: prtimes.jp   Different Kinds of Lodging The campsite will offer an experience closer to glamping in a sense, with a choice of available accommodations that will really make use of the natural scenery around the area, bringing out the Hygge aspect with full effect to the campers and visitors. Currently, the plans are that the campsite will feature Nordisk tents and Hygge Lodges alongside the Hygge Education field and the Hygge Nature field. Image Source: henrik-innovation Image Source: henrik-innovation Visitors will be assured to get the full and authentic Hygge experience while also enjoying the wonders of the natural wonders in Japan as the campsite will be constructed by Tredje Natur, a Danish architectural firm, alongside Structured Environment, a Japanese Engineering firm. All based on the sustainability advice from henrik-innovations, ensuring that campsite is green and eco-friendly. Letting visitors have the peace of mind while enjoying the facilities of the campsite. Image Source: henrik-innovation   Resemblance to Princess Mononoke from Studio Ghibli Avid fans of the Japanese animation house Studio Ghibli have pointed out the resemblance of the Hygge Circles Ugakei with the settings of the blockbuster hit, Princess Mononoke. The movie is largely based in the forest just like where the Hygge Circles Ugakei campsite is located in. It will definitely be a place to visit to have the full experience of the Princess Mononoke movie! Image Source: henrik-innovation For the fans of the animated studio, there will also be a fully-fledged theme park under works which is based on the studio’s animated films estimated to be open in late 2022 in Japan. With the Dondoko Forest - a My Neighbor Totoro inspired forest, Ghibli’s Giant Warehouse, the Hill of Youth - with the antique shop from Whisper of the Heart, Village of Mononoke - official recreation of the locations in Princess Mononoke and the Valley of Witches - a salute to Kiki’s Delivery Service.  Image Source: Studio Ghibli   Perfect for the Outdoor Traveller Imagine sitting by the campfire surrounded by the serene forest under the starry night sky while enjoying a cup of tea, this campsite promises to be a must-visit place for people who love the outdoors. A place where you can recharge and escape the hustle and bustle of the fast-paced and busy city life through connecting with nature. Check out our other blog on "Forest Bathing: Relax, Rejuvenate & Recharge With Nature When You're In Japan" if you want to learn more about reconnecting with nature. If you’re more of a city-dweller check out our blog on “Japan's Most Aesthetic Hostels You Need To Check Out”. Where we scour the street of Tokyo for the most awesome looking hotels you can find a piece of peace in the hustle and bustle of the city. With only the released renders, pictures, and limited information of the campsite to go by, it already looks to be an interesting development. There's no surprise that it is a highly anticipated project by all the avid travelers looking for new places to explore when the pandemic blows over. We know we will definitely keep an eye on this campsite for our next visit to Japan....

  • NDP 2020: 5 Things To Look Out For This National Day Parade

    Cover Image Source: Photo by Rogan Yeoh on Unsplash No live shows at the Padang this year? Well, they bring the parade to you! 9 August marks the 55th year Singapore gained independence. With the current virus situation, this year’s National Day Parade will especially be different than in previous years. With safety measures in place for COVID-19 and no tickets to the parade at the Padang, you won't be missing much of the festivities as there are plenty of things happening around the island. You can even catch them live in the comfort and safety of your home as most or all of the events will be broadcasted live on television and on Youtube as well. The theme for this year’s NDP is centered around bringing the crowd favorites such as the Mobile Columns, Flag Flypast, Jets, the Red Lions parachuting down, and of course the fireworks closer to the people. Most, if not all, the events are focused on paying tribute and showing gratitude to the healthcare and frontline workers who have continually put their lives on the line to keep others safe during these hard times. (Thank you all!) With all the things that are different in this year’s edition, it can be very easy to get confused with what to expect on the actual day itself. Luckily for us, the NDP committee has just recently released the schedule and locations to the public. Here’s what’s different about this coming NDP. via GIPHY   Mobile Column Happening at 10 AM to 1 PM islandwide This year’s mobile columns will cover the longest distance ever for any mobile column traveling into the heartlands. Covering all four corners of the island. A noteworthy point about this is that the mobile column will be going past several hospitals to salute the healthcare and frontline workers. Image Source: NDP 2020   Flag Flypast & Roar of Unity Happening at 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM Another exciting change to the parade that is going to be a first this year will be the route taken by the Chinook, Apaches, and F-15SGs for the Flag Flypast and Jet flyovers, or as they call it the “Roar of Unity”. They will not only just fly over the Padang, but they will also make their way around Singapore as well. You’ll definitely hear them coming your way, so make sure to look out your windows to catch a glimpse of them flying by! Image Source: NDP 2020   Maritime Sailpast Happening at 11:00 AM To commemorate the country’s 55th birthday, a unique sail past with vessels from the Navy, Coast Guard, Civil Defence, and Maritime and Port Authority will be sailing past off the coast of Marina Bay. Image Source: NDP 2020   Red Lions Happening at 11:10 AM Get ready to “Ooooo”, the ever so popular Red Lions will be jumping off the planes and parachuting down into the heartlands at Sengkang and Jurong East. They will be landing near the Sengkang General Hospital and Ng Teng Fong Hospital as a sign of tribute to the healthcare workers and frontline workers. Image Source: NDP 2020   Fireworks Happening at 8:20 PM If you are like us, then the definite highlight of every National Day Parade will be the fireworks display, every single year. Whether you choose to see it live or even on the television, it serves as a great conclusion to the whole parade and celebrations itself. This year will be especially different as it has been announced that it will be set off in 10 different locations right in the heartlands. Even if it will be harder for us to get to see it in person (to get that great shot for Instagram), changing the norm might not be such a bad thing. Imagine seeing the fireworks right in the comfort and safety of your homes. The main point is, safety is still the top priority. The exact locations have been released by the NDP committee recently, here are 10 spots where the fireworks will be set off, which will mean that you can see the fireworks from around the vicinity - The fireworks are scheduled to go off at 8.20 PM islandwide. The locations of the fireworks as released by the NDP Committee are: Jurong Lake Garden Yew Tee Buona Vista Bishan Woodlands Sembawang Marina Barrage Ang Mo Kio Punggol Tampines Even if you do not live in these areas, these fireworks have been described as “High Level” Fireworks where they should be easily visible from afar. Image Source: NDP 2020   Safety is Still a Priority We cannot stress enough how important it is to remember to abide and follow the safety measures against COVID-19. If you are going out to see the different NDP events listed earlier, remember to practice adequate Social Distancing measures between one another and always wear a mask. You can also stay at home and watch it on television or over on Youtube, where all the events will be broadcasted live so you won’t be missing out on the festivities. Those are only some of the events that you will see during the National Day Parade on 9th August, with all that is happening for the parade, it will surely be a very different experience to the parades we normally see on National Day. Happy 55th Birthday Singapore! via GIPHY...
