What a strange year it has been. I’m sure nobody is going to ask me what I mean by that!
The latest big news in Singapore is about a Covid scare that cut short a cruise to nowhere. An 83-year-old man had fallen sick on board and tested positive. However, on return to mainland, his latest test results, by a proper lab presumably, have been negative. It might turn out to be a false alarm after all. In any case, over 1600 holidaymakers had their trip cut short. The good news is that they might not have been exposed to a real case.
Still, better safe than sorry, as they say. Another cruise that was supposed to depart today was cancelled in response to the false alarm. I guess crew and passengers alike need a bit more time to calm down after the excitement.
Checking through my phone pictures, on this day one year ago, I was on a tour in a desert. Two years ago, I was on a business trip overseas.Three years ago, I was at home. So in the past, I’d often travelled in December. Now I don’t even know if there’s going to be any trips in 2021…
What a strange year it has been. I had a premonition this year would be a year of change for me but I had not anticipated that it would affect everyone as well.
