A lot of industries are being badly hit by the Covid 19. Tiger is currently rallying the Singapore community to help our local F&B. With every $10 you contribute, Tiger will give you 2 Tiger or Tiger Crystal free. You can redeem them at participating outlets after the Circuit Breaker when the outlets reopen.
Tiger hopes to raise $300,000 through this initiative. All proceeds will go directly to the participating coffeeshops, bars and pubs. Tiger has contributed $100,000 to kickstart the initiative and another $600,000 worth in beer product sponsorship.
So let’s do our part to help our local F&B here. Cheers!
It’s the end of day 3 Circuit Breaker in Singapore. 25 more days to go. Singapore just reported 287 new Covid 19 cases today. And it doesn’t seems to be slowing down any time soon.
This Covid 19 is really a global catastrophe. Many plans are being disrupted. Lots of adjustments need to be made. I know the Singapore Government is doing its best to help everyone. Unfortunately for me, I fall into the cracks and don’t qualify for most of the assistance available. I guess I’ll just have to ride out of the storm with whatever I got.
Keep telling myself that all these are a lesson. A lesson to prepare myself for future challenges. Dolor hic tibi proderit olim (Someday this pain will be useful to you.)
We will see through this. We will overcome the challenges like we always have in the past. Hang in there everyone.

Most of you know by now that Singapore will be implementing a 4 weeks Circuit Breaker from 7 April to 4 May 2020 to stop the spread of Covid 19. Dring this Circuit Breaker, everyone is advised to stay at home. Essential services such as supermarket, food and medical service will remain open during this period. For the full list of essential service that can remain open during this period, visit https://covid.gobusiness.gov.sg/.
If you really need to go to the malls to get essential goods and services., check out the SpaceOut website to see if the mall is crowded before going. Do keep a safe distance from others and maintain your personal hygiene. Please remember to wear a mask. The Singapore Government is giving every resident a reusable mask. Go to maskgowhere.gov.sg to find out where you can collect your mask.
If you need to go to the parks to exercise, check out the Safe Distance @ Parks website before going. Remember, keep a safe distance while exercising. In fact, if possible, try to exercise at home. Only go out when absolutely necessary.
It is going to be a tough period. But let’s make this 28 days worth it. We will get through this. #SGUnited
“It will be a long fight. But if any country can see this through, it is Singapore. We have the resources. We have the determination. We are united. By helping one another through this, we will prevail, and emerge stronger.”
We all heard about the shortage of medical supplies due to the Covid 19 crisis. Some hospitals are running out of personal protective equipment (PPE) for their healthcare workers. We need to do something to protect the healthcare workers so that they can continue doing their jobs without fears of getting infections.
One of the many solutions is using 3D printers to produce parts and equipment needed to fight the Covid 19. 3D printers can be used to make face shields. There’s also stories about people using 3D printers to make replacement parts for ventilator.
Here in Singapore, a 3D printing company is seeking donations to print face shields for healthcare workers. Siege Advanced Manufacturing has more than 50 3D printers and can manufacture hundreds of face shields per day. They will be donating the face shields to hospitals in Johor Bahru.
Check out the GoGetFunding page and help spread the words. The donation goes into obtaining the clear plastic, elastic band, and running cost of manufacturing the face shields. They need SGD$13,000 to make 2000 face shields.
Dyson just announced a new haircare product recently. The Dyson Corrale is a hair straightener which uses flexing plates to style hair. Suitable for all hair types, it features Dyson’s Intelligent Heat Control for precise temperatures.
Unlike traditional straighteners, the unique flexing plates of the Dyson Corrale straightener mould to shape and gather the hair, giving the user greater control and therefore elevating the styling results, whilst reducing the reliance on heat. As the plates adapt to the hair, they apply tension more evenly and stop strands splaying. This greater control allows outstanding styles to be created with less reliance on heat.
The Dyson Corrale straightener has three precise heat settings – 165°C, 185°C and 210°C. Using a platinum sensor, the temperature is measured 100 times a second to deliver precise, accurate heat.
And the best part about the Dyson Corrale is that it is cordless. The built-in 4-cell lithium-ion battery provides up to 30 minutes of styling and takes 70 minutes to fully charge. You can charge it by using the magnetic charging cable or placing in a charging dock.
We don’t have the Singapore launch date and pricing for the Dyson Corrale yet. I’ll update this blog when I get them.
