We can fight Coronavirus but we cannot fight stupidity and ignorance

We can fight Coronavirus but we cannot fight stupidity and ignorance.
I was jogging around Sengkang and saw so many folks out with their trolleys at 10pm!

Government announced ORANGE (on DORSCON level), and everyone crazy chiong supermarket! Preparing for doomsday?

Is it really Kiasu and Kiasi ? or some misplaced well intentions.
I would urge everyone to be safe, but also demonstrate logical thinking and compassion.

I did not remember the same thing happening during SARS and H1N1 outbreak, or even during Haze period. Everyone Stay calm and sanitise!

Remember basic hygiene like washing our hands. And promote social responsibility, like resting at home when we are sick, or mask when we are not feeling well. 自动一点 please.

Government Whatsapp and tips:

Many people are second guessing what MOH and Government is doing.  Suddenly, everyone becomes Virus experts and consultants.

If Singapore is not moving in the same direction, forget about SGsecure and other initiatives. The best plans will be derailed by rumour and ignorance!

I would prefer the authorities to quota essentials, example maximum 10kg rice per family. Otherwise, this crazy phenomenon will harm ourselves even before the virus reaches us!

Many rumours are floating around in Social Media and Whatsapp, some are plain ridiculous:
– MRT and shopping centre lockdown
– Masks shortage in Singapore
– Maggie mee and toilet rolls hoarding
– Many more examples! (from MotherShip.sg)

Can you imagine a scenario where other folks are deny essential items?
-Mother cannot find baby powder for her toddler
-Uncle finishes night shift cannot buy his weekly ingredients (no more stock)
-Nurse who just finished her shift could not find toilet paper(what!)
-I do not want to queue 1 hour to get my favourite ice cream too

What I noticed is many non-Singaporeans are involved in the supermarket-clearing too. Do share with your neighbours and colleagues, no need to horde!

Even if you are buying non-essential item, you need to queue with the irrational ones!

Teenagers are another group.  I had to nag and nag again to my kids, avoid crowded spaces, sanitise your hands. Teenagers seem to think they are young and strong and can avoid coronavirus!

We can fight Coronavirus as a nation, but everyone needs to chip in. STAY CALM!

ErgoBloom, the best study desk for your kids

Boon Yee studying on his ErgoBloom kids study desk. He is studying hard for his PSLE, and this ergonomic table came in time to help him concentrate.

ErgoBloom (sold by ergonomic furniture retailer ErgoEdge) come in two sizes and colors, regular/large sizes in either pink or blue. Since ErgoBloom is designed to grow with children, we chose the large pink so that there is enough space for two kids to study side by side.

With ErgoBloom, Boon Yee has improved his posture. He is much more productive now and is able to prepare for his PSLE comfortably.

Sturdy quality with adjustable heights, ErgoBloom is designed to grow with our child.

The set also comes with various add-ons such as foot rest, book shelf/holder and wristpad to provide a more conducive and comfortable study environment for your child.

Here’s the best part.

The desk and chair are fully adjustable, so we can adjust it for our child’s comfort as they grow. This ensures that our child would not sit awkwardly in an ill-fitting desk.

Once a child cultivates good posture and is comfortable, not only will he be confident in his posture, he will fidget less and naturally be able to concentrate better on his studies.

The ergonomic table literally grows with the child, promotes and enforce good posture on children of all ages, stretching our ROI!

The ErgoBloom table top can be tilted to minimise strain to the neck, this prevents kids from developing “forward neck posture”.

The non-reflective surface minimise light ray from reflecting into a child’s eyes, especially from electronic devices. This will reduce the impact of astigmatism, and delay the progress of myopia.

ErgoBloom is designed by ErgoEdge, and Boon Yee’s table looks more impressive than my own computer table.

Be it for study or entertainment, ErgoBloom allows the kids to focus and manage their work area.

BloomChair comes with ergonomic features like height, backrest, and seat depth adjustments to get your kid the perfect fit.

The standout feature is the unique flexible split-backrest design. It reacts to any shifts in our kid’s back to immediately fill in the gaps. This provides high levels of support and comfort, thus reducing pressure to the back and spine by up to 75%.

Some studies have shown that this design gives the best shoulder and back support, helping your your child to slouch lesser and sit straight more often.

ErgoEdge chair has a safety feature too. The rollers are automatically locked when someone sits. This would prevent accidentally rolling over toes!

Our ErgoEdge table is both functional and aesthetic.

Good Luck Boon Yee with your studies!

The ErgoBloom is undoubtedly one of the best kids study desk available in the market.
