Maps By Tammy Chew
Walking tours are one of my go-to experiences when I travel to somewhere new. Learning about the history and getting insights from a local often feels more immersive and fun! While researching for this map, I chanced upon this themed tour - listen to stories about Greek gods, myths and legends while exploring Athens!
The Rail Corridor used to be a railway line that linked Singapore to Malaysia, its origins dates back to more than a century ago! It's now being converted into a public green space that's rich in biodiversity and history. I visited the re-opened section of the corridor on New Year's Eve with my friends and really enjoyed the morning stroll. Since we can't travel overseas now, this was a nice opportunity to rediscover Singapore and find some respite from the urban landscape.
I love grocery shopping, it's therapeutic. And heading to the neighbourhood supermarket is probably the most 'exciting' moment in my life these days. In Singapore, the new normal now is having to put on masks, have our IDs scanned and temperature checked before we're allowed into the supermarkets. It's also interesting to observe what everyone is buying these days to stock up at home. Stuff that people used to panic buy - eggs, hand sanitizer, toilet paper - are now fully stocked. Instead, kimchi, pasta and baking goods are flying off the shelves. It's also a bummer that everyone else loves sour cream and onion chips as much as I do. What are people stocking up on in your area, and what are your personal essential items to tide you through this stay home period? Keep a safe distance and stay healthy!
