Saturdays are supposed to be very crowded on trains because that was when most are not working, including some of our maids/migrant workers. Today is the first Saturday after the Circuit Breaker in Singapore. The trains are empty, you are allowed to put your food items on the seats because of social distancing. People in grey polo tee who are Social Distancing Ambassadors are patrolling the stations. People are either carrying groceries or food when they are out.
Public transport is still available and there is social distancing to be followed even on public buses. We are not supposed to sit on certain seats with sticker or stand on certain spots with sticker (for trains). We have lesser cars on the road but to keep up with the frequency, the buses are moving slower than usual and stopping at bus stops longer than usual.
This is Singapore with our Singapore residents doing our best to flatten the COVID-19 curve.
You might think that empty malls means unrest but nope, we still have security guards patrolling the malls and looking at me at what am I doing at the mall. Luckily for my bag of groceries and Koi bubble tea cup, otherwise, I might be questioned.
After getting my essentials and food, I headed back to home and wash up. I’m not going out until I really need to and please don’t hoard food. It took me 3 trips to different supermarkets to find any pasta/pesto sauce and granola.
