500s – 800s

16 Sep 2021 – COVID-19 Cases In SIN

Mon: a good week ahead to all – missing overseas family&friends, autumn-colours, etc etc. With 520new COVID-19cases yesterday in SIN trying not to gallivant about, thus sharing memories from some of my favourite places on this earth. https://amylamsg.com/2018/09/14/tromso-kvaloya-2018/

Tue: 9/14/2021 07:34hrs ST MorningBriefing 607 new Covid-19 cases yesterday here in SIN, rather concerning & depressing with 500+ and 600+ cases the past 2days! https://www.todayonline.com/singapore/new-covid-19-cases-sept-13-21

Needed this uplifting, heart-warming pix&write-up to share today!

Memories of taking care of Ram, a golden retriever in the late 1970s when we were living in TOS/Norway while the owners (Ellen&JohnSr+Nils&Cathrine) were in UK for 6months. Ram was such a good well-trained dog and gentle with L&M but working part-time and living in a small 2nd storey-house (Anne&Roar were occupying the ground-level), felt guilty&sorry that he could only be outside when one of us had the time to take him out then. Unable to locate the 1977-78pix, the only one with Ram is from 1980 after we all move to OSL/Norway.

Those who do not really know me believe that I do not like dogs and that is such an incorrect observation. Do not like any pets who are not well-trained and really dislike any animals jumping on me or licking me. Feel sorry for dogs being cooped up, especially those living in cities – they should have the space to roam&run around freely. How many can take the responsibilities&time to take their dogs out in the nature to do that??

Oh no! 837new cases in today’s news, need to stop keeping taps with these figures!! The 3above downloaded pix are from a FB-posting Trust Me, I’m Singaporean – maybe at the rates of all these high figures, it might be the way to go on public transport – better safe than sorry!


Bring in the good memories&thoughts now that I should not be roaming around too much and as for travel, that is definitely out of the question at present.

Must be missing Norway to watch this documentary – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B25DbSNoyRs Not a fan of cruises but have been on the Hurtigruten a few times on short trips and once from Bergen-Kirkenes before moving away from Norway/1985, it was in my bucket list – really enjoyed&glad that I went on it then.

Revisited a section of it with my oldest friends KK&PP 9yrs ago/Sep2012 – tkx for wonderful memories. Hurtigruten – The coastal highway to the soul of the north. Even I who do not like cruises will go on the Hurtigruten any time – highly recommended.  https://amylamsg.com/2012/09/11/svolvaer-goat/

Å – World’s shortest place name is located on the Moskenes island in Lofoten is the civilization most far-out on the Lofoten islands.
