  4. (Bloomberg) — Even before the new omicron variant forced the delay of several vaccinated travel lanes, Singapore’s grand reopening was off to a slow start. Despite the social media hype and initial bookings rush, the number of people actually traveling using the city-state’s quarantine-free travel lanes is surprisingly few, according to Bloomberg calculations based on Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore data. Some 20,510 travelers received approval to enter Singapore since the first travel lanes kicked off in early September through Nov. 26, just 12.5% of the around 164,500 people theoretically allowed in under the nation’s daily quotas. Including Singapore citizens, permanent residents and children aged 12 and below who don’t need to apply for re-entry approval, that figure rises to 37,001, still only 22.5% of the total possible. While omicron will start to be reflected in carriers’ schedules in coming days, Singapore’s recovery already ranked the slowest among major countries in the Asia-Pacific region, OAG data show. A spokesperson from the Ministry of Transport didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. While no-one expected the floodgates to open right away and the daily quotas put a natural cap on visitors, the numbers coming in on the vaccinated travel lanes average out to less than 500 people a day, a far cry from the more than 181,600 travelers who used to stream through Changi Airport 365 days a year pre-Covid. “The numbers aren’t all that fantastic,” said Mohshin Aziz, director of the Pangolin Aviation Recovery Fund, which invests in aviation-related businesses. “The first to travel will be those who need to see family or who are going borderline insane with the travel curbs. But after that, reality will sink in very quickly” considering the high cost of air tickets and Covid tests. Omicron “creates an additional layer of anxiety,” he said. It’s not just the expense of travel during a pandemic — rapid result Covid tests at some airports in Europe run to almost 300 euro ($315) a pop — but the uncertainty of travel that’s putting people off. Even before omicron blasted onto the front pages, Covid cases were rising at an alarming rate in Europe, sparking fresh lockdowns in parts of the continent. One of the earliest places that Singapore announced a vaccinated travel lane with was Germany, where new infections have been hitting records. In Europe, Singapore also has vaccinated travel lanes with the U.K., Italy, the Netherlands, Spain, Denmark and France. Freezing weather — Arctic blasts have left parts of the U.K. without power — and a winter ski season under threat from potential lockdowns for a second year has made the prospect of flying 12 hours across the globe only to be hit with frigid temperatures and lifestyle curbs less appealing. The risk of travel in a pandemic was only reinforced by the emergence of the new variant, which triggered a cascade of various travel curbs — even though its severity is yet to be determined. By Monday, several countries had started to raise their drawbridges, with Israel and Japan banning foreigners and others limiting entry to travelers from parts of southern Africa, where the new strain was first identified. The number of airline seats offered on flights from Singapore, which doesn’t have a domestic market, was about 22% of pre-Covid levels for the week of Nov. 22, the OAG data show. Singapore Airlines Ltd. said earlier this month it expects to be at just 43% of pre-Covid capacity by the end of December. And while capacity on flights to Australia picked up in the weeks after two-way quarantine-free travel was allowed, it’s still well under half of what it was pre-pandemic. Some of the same factors that are keeping people in Singapore from rushing toward the departure gates are holding back would-be visitors to the city-state, too. The cost of vaccinated travel lane flights, the price of Covid tests and the restrictions on daily life after arrival are putting many people off coming to the island nation, Hannah Pearson, the Kuala Lumpur-based director of tourism consultancy Pear Anderson, said. Most visitors to Singapore on vaccinated travel lane flights must take a Covid test upon arrival at the airport for around S$160 ($117). “What happens if you’re a family of six? You can’t eat out. What are you going to do? You’re still not getting this full travel experience,” she said, referencing the fact that local rules in Singapore currently restrict dining to groups of five. Singapore, where you can drive the length of the island in under two hours, also typically isn’t a place where travelers spend much time, she said. Many tourists use the nation as a transit destination en route to Europe or Australia, often never leaving the airport. “If you’re going to all that trouble to go to Singapore, to go anywhere really, you want to stay more than a few days,” Anderson said. “The long-haul market would probably use Singapore as a hub” however the more countries you visit, “the more border restrictions you’re going to bump into,” she said. Even travel within Asia using Singapore’s vaccinated travel lanes, which now extend to Malaysia and will soon encompass Sri Lanka, Thailand and Cambodia, isn’t cheap.

It’s too taxing,” he said. “What’s the justification of getting swabbed four times and spending money on that?” There’s also the risk that unless Singapore acts swiftly to protect its own borders, omicron enters and spreads substantially in the densely populated city-state, causing other countries to turn their backs on the nation, further thwarting efforts to open up. “To me that’s what we want to avoid,” Associate Professor Alex Cook, vice-dean of research at the National University of Singapore’s Saw Swee Hock School of Public Health, said. “I’m not convinced that we need to stop it from getting into the country, but we want to avoid other people blocking the border, turning from Singapore.”

  10. SINGAPORE - Sengkang GRC MP Raeesah Khan has resigned from the Workers' Party (WP), which also means that she has resigned from her position as an MP. The WP said in a Facebook post on Tuesday (Nov 30) night that its top leadership met earlier in the evening and reached this decision. "The Workers' Party Central Executive Committee (CEC) met at 8pm on 30 November to deliberate and decide on the recommendation of the Disciplinary Committee which had been formed on 2 November to investigate Ms Khan's admissions in Parliament," it said. Ms Khan, 27, had earlier this month admitted to lying in Parliament about details of a sexual assault case that she had alleged was mishandled by the police at an earlier sitting. The WP said that Ms Khan had, at 4.30pm on Tuesday, indicated to Mr Singh her intention to resign from the Party. She then attended the CEC meeting at 8pm and conveyed in person her intention to resign. The party added that it will hold a press conference on Thursday (Dec 2) to provide more information on the matter and to share its plans to ensure that Sengkang residents, particularly in Compassvale ward, continue to be cared for and represented. https://www.straitstimes.com/singapore/raeesah-khan-resigns-from-wp-and-from-position-as-sengkang-grc-mp

  14. With the leaps and bounds made in technology, there is no denying that people’s lives have gotten easier. You can do so much with it and achieve even more. One of the most well-known technology, among many others, is VR (virtual reality). Three years ago, the University of Electronic Science and Technology of China (电子科技大学) actively encouraged students to use VR. However, they may be regretting it now. Apparently, a student recently used VR to watch porn while masturbating in a public toilet. Male university students got a huge surprise when they walked into the public toilet. First off, there was a student standing in a cubicle with the door wide open. Not only was he openly masturbating with his pants down, while wearing a VR headset. No one is sure if the student forgot to close the door before excitedly jumping into the virtual world. Perhaps he did, but failed to close the door properly. Either way, whoever walked into the toilet was treated to quite a sight. According to the netizen who reported the matter, no one else was in the toilet during the incident. We can definitely understand why. Photos and videos of the student were uploaded to the internet, sealing his fate. As a fellow student aptly summarised: “(Either way), it’s a social death.” The news, which has spread widely among the students has generated much laughter and lewd comments. The university has a variety of VR tech at the students disposal, such as a VR library and VR gaming. However, they may be changing their policy on VR soon, thanks to this incident. Enjoying VR porn isn’t uncommon. However, enjoying it to the point of forgetting your surroundings may not be such a good idea. Always be aware, folks!

  18. Singapore was recognized for its pricey lifestyle today in an annual study. The tiny island with over five million people vaulted from fourth to second to tie with Paris as the world’s most expensive city to live, according to The Economist. Israel’s capital Tel Aviv topped the Worldwide Cost of Living survey conducted by the newspaper’s research arm and published Wednesday. Rounding out the top 10, in descending order, were Zurich, Hong Kong, New York, Geneva, Copenhagen, Los Angeles, and Osaka. The poll found the rate of inflation across the cities has “accelerated” since the pandemic began, rising to 3.5% from 1.9% last year, and 2.8% in 2019. It is the fastest rate recorded in the past five years. The survey compiled prices for more than 200 goods and services including recreation, petrol, and tobacco in 173 cities, 40 more than last year. Researchers noted the prices of products and services from a range of stores. The data was then converted to US dollars and compared to New York as the base line. In last year’s survey, Paris, Zurich and Hong Kong shared the No. 1 spot. According to the findings, Tel Aviv climbed to the top on the back of a strong New Shekel, which has driven higher transport and grocery prices. Meanwhile, at the bottom of the list, war torn Damascus and Tripoli were among the cheapest cities in the world. Image: Economist Intelligence Unit Image: Economist Intelligence Unit

  21. Cryptocurrency payments provider TripleA announced today (November 30) that it has been granted a licence from the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) to offer digital payment token (DPT) services in Singapore under the Payment Services Act (PSA). The licence will allow the company to provide end-to-end cryptocurrency payment services for businesses, including crypto payments gateway for e-commerce, crypto payouts and crypto remittances. TripleA is the fourth in Singapore to receive the DPT license, after Singapore-based fintech firm Fomo Pay, Australian cryptocurrency exchange Independent Reserve, and local bank DBS’ brokerage arm DBS Vickers. MAS has received 170 licence applications from DPT providers including global crypto exchanges such as Coinbase and Kraken. 30 applications were withdrawn after engagement with MAS and two have been rejected. Eric Barbier, founder and CEO of TripleA / Image Credit: Soar Payments Founded by Eric Barbier in 2017, TripleA offers crypto payment services, including white-label crypto trading to financial platforms. The Singapore-based company aims to revolutionise how businesses and customers are connected through blockchain technology and cryptocurrency solutions. It allows online and offline businesses to accept cryptocurrency payments with zero price volatility risk by converting them to local currencies in real-time. With its easy setup, its highly competitive exchange rate and its no-chargebacks payment system, TripleA helps businesses to increase their revenue by accessing their growing cryptocurrency community of over 300 million global users. Earlier in October, TripleA partnered with Asia’s leading super app Grab to allow users to buy crypto via GrabPay through TransCrypt (a TripleA brand) following the growing interest in cryptocurrencies. “Cryptocurrency trading has gained traction in Singapore, with crypto adoption of around 9.4 per cent of its population. We are very excited to partner with Grab to power crypto trading through TransCrypt. This collaboration will allow us to expand cryptocurrency access to more residents in Singapore,” said Eric, CEO of TripleA. TripleA currently operates in Singapore with a presence in Hong Kong and Europe, and is quickly expanding worldwide.

  28. SINGAPORE - The relaxation of social measures will be paused, and travellers entering Singapore will face stricter rules from 11.59pm on Thursday (Dec 2), as the country acts to buy time amid the spread of the new Omicron variant around the world. The Ministry of Health (MOH) said on Tuesday that while no cases of Omicron - identified by South Africa last week - have been detected locally, the pre-emptive measures are needed for Singapore to assess the implications of the new variant. They will also help to reduce the risk of importation of the virus. From 11.59pm on Thursday, air travellers arriving on the quarantine-free Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) scheme will have to undergo supervised, self-administered antigen rapid tests at a Quick Test Centre on days three and seven of their arrival. Currently, these travellers have to take a Covid-19 swab test only prior to their departure for Singapore and after arrival here. Second, all air travellers entering, transferring or transiting through Singapore must have tested negative in a pre-departure test within two days of leaving for Singapore. Currently, travellers from Hong Kong, Macau, China and Taiwan are not required to take pre-departure tests, and need to take a Covid-19 swab test only upon arrival. These places are in Category I of MOH's risk classification framework, which means they have the lowest risk of Covid-19 infections. Third, all travellers must take a Covid-19 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test on arrival. This will affect non-VTL travellers entering Singapore who are not from Hong Kong, Macau, China and Taiwan. Currently, they do not have to take a test upon arrival, but have to be tested before the end of their stay-home notice period. MOH said that it will also conduct a one-time PCR testing exercise for surveillance purposes, for travellers who arrived in Singapore between Nov 12 and 27, and had been to the countries or regions affected by Omicron in the 14 days before their arrival. These travellers have been notified of their scheduled test time and venue, said MOH, asking for the understanding and cooperation of affected travellers for the testing exercise. On the freezing of both VTLs and relaxation of social measures, Health Minister Ong Ye Kung said: "This is a prudent thing to do for now when we are faced with a major uncertainty." News of the Omicron variant, which is assessed by the World Health Organisation to have a "very high" global risk, has in the past two days triggered Japan and Israel to announce plans to close their borders to foreigners. The variant has many more mutations than the Delta Covid-19 variant and has sparked concerns among health authorities worldwide, though the impact of the mutations are still being investigated by scientists. MOH said Singapore needs to buy time to learn more about the variant as some of the mutations found in the variant's genome, previously found in other variants, were known to enhance transmissibility and reduce vaccine efficacy. "In terms of vaccine efficacy, early data suggests that current vaccines should remain effective against severe disease and death. However, more studies are needed to understand the actual impact of this variant on our existing countermeasures, including vaccines and treatments," MOH added. MOH noted that there has been a rapid increase in the proportion of cases that are infected by the Omicron variant in South Africa. It also said more countries have reported cases over the last few days, suggesting that the variant has spread globally. It added that Singapore's community would have some protection against this new variant. During a press conference on Tuesday, Trade and Industry Minister Gan Kim Yong, who co-chairs the Covid-19 multi-ministry task force, said: "Very little is known yet about this variant with regard to its transmissibility and severity, and how effective vaccines are against it. "We are closely monitoring the situation, and scientists around the world are working on it." These tightened restrictions will be in place for four weeks. They will be reviewed or extended if necessary, said MOH. There are now 18 countries from which vaccinated travellers can enter Singapore without quarantine, following the launch of the new VTLs on Monday. VTLs for six other countries - Thailand, Cambodia, Fiji, Maldives, Sri Lanka and Turkey - will start around the middle of December. But three other planned VTLs for Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates have been postponed indefinitely as a precautionary measure to reduce the risks of importing the Omicron variant to Singapore. MOH said on Tuesday that cases confirmed or suspected to be infected with the Omicron variant will not be allowed to undergo home recovery, and instead be taken to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases for isolation and management. It will also conduct full contact tracing for these cases to identify their close contacts, place them on a 10-day quarantine at government quarantine facilities instead of allowing self-isolation at home, and conduct PCR testing at the start and end of their quarantine. "We are introducing a set of measures that serve as a strong yet reasonable response to the new variant to protect our local community," said MOH. "We will continue to monitor and evaluate data on the Omicron variant as it emerges and adjust our border and domestic measures accordingly." Correction note: An earlier version of this story said six upcoming VTLs will be postponed. This is inaccurate. There are no changes to plans for the six new VTLs, but there will be no additional VTLs announced for the moment.
