Jurassic Mile

 


Daily Dose: Jurassic Mile

Singapore welcomes 22 new residents from the past at Changi Airport. Dinosaurs from the Jurassic era will line up the new Changi Airport Connector.

This comes in just in time for the year-end holidays for those who wish to explore something new in Singapore. After all, the majority of us will be on this little island dor the holidays due to Covid19.  The best thing we could do is to rediscover Singapore!

Do note that while entry is free, for Fri-Sun,  you would need to book slots to entry.

You can book your slots here



1) 10 new Covid19 cases

  • 3 Dorms ( 2 Quarantine, 1 Surveillance)
  • 7 Imported


No community case reported. Imported cases vs local cases ratio has risen to 2:1

Imported cases are mostly from the Philippines and Indonesia. Since restrictions have been placed on India residents for compulsory testing, it remains to be seen if the tests are compulsory pre-entry for other countries.

It has a Jurassic Mile featuring 22 lifesize dinosaurs!

Between Oct 16 and Jan 3, visitors will have to reserve a slot on Changi PlayPass to visit the Jurassic Mile on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays between 9am and midnight due to safe distancing concerns. Capacity has been capped at "a few hundred", a Changi Airport Group spokesperson said. 

Visitors will be admitted every 30 minutes, and are allowed to stay for up to one hour within the exhibit. Bookings are not required for weekday visits.

4 )More couples seek counselling as a circuit breaker, working from home put strain on marriages.

The important thing to have is personal space and separation of work and family. Although my wife and I worked from home, we hardly see each other during the day as we are in separate rooms. It helps that our children are old enough to take care of themselves while we work. 

For those without the luxury, being together 24 hours might be a hindrance than a blessing.

5) 8 in 10 Singapore want to work from home or have more flexibility

After several months of having to work from home due to Covid-19, the novelty might have worn off, but the practice seems to have caught on.

Eight out of 10 workers now say they prefer to work from home or have flexible working arrangements, a survey commissioned by The Straits Times of nearly 1,800 people has found.

Just under half of the respondents felt that working from home helped them to save money, while seven in 10 said working from home improved their mental health.

Working from home has its benefits too!
