How's your first Day of Phase 3?



 Daily Dose: How's your first day of Phase 3

There were no Supermarket rush, no long queues for bubble tea, no swarm of joggers on the street. 

Phase 3 kicks off like any other normal day in most parts without any significant report compared to Circuit Breaker, Phase 1 or Phase 2. This is a sign that things are beginning to head back to normal. Even the MRT decided to take an off day today and Starhub phone services joined in for the late morning and afternoon with disruptions in their services.

Speaking of normal, this is the last week of school holidays. Enjoy it while it last!
