Because the world can always do with more of a woman’s touch
It’s been over a year since Singapore reported its first COVID-19 case. After a period of tough but necessary measures, we are now seeing some semblance of normalcy. More activities have resumed and a number of businesses can accommodate more people. But we are still a long way from full recovery.
Until then, let us remain adaptable as we go about our daily lives, including leisure pursuits. While there may be pastimes that we still cannot enjoy during this pandemic period, we can still learn to embrace other activities. And when we set our hearts on trying something, the outcome can often be very fulfilling.
Take the case of SC/CPL Thoufiq Ahamed — he may only be 25 years old, but his love for cinema has seen him write, direct and produce his own films. Read his story here. Likewise, MAJ (NS) Dr Toh Lim Kai and SUPT (NS) Terence Choo took up running to stay in shape. Today, running has developed into a passion and both are part of the HomeTeamNS REAL® Run Committee, inspiring others to lead a healthy lifestyle. Even for HTVN volunteers — anti-drug advocate Lim Zi Fei and Civil Defence Lionheater Club leader Teo Jia Cheng— what started out as a community service has become a full-fledged pursuit for both.
