Local Footprints
In a post-circuit breaker ‘new normal’ world, at least till the end of 2020, the thought of traveling again will be like dreaming of a seat on Virgin Galactic – an unimaginable experience that seems light-years away.

In place of a globetrotting and wanderlust vacation, we are all stranded on this island (Wilson! Wilson!) and will have to make the most of the situation. Perhaps that is why on a recent trip to Spago at the Marina Bay Sands, I found myself weaving through throngs of staycationers milling around the vast hotel atrium, checking into the hotel rooms, and making their way to the iconic rooftop infinity pool – just like what tourists will do on a regular day except that they are not tourists! It’s domestic tourism as the next best thing to leaving on a jet plane. Staycation is the new vacation, Sentosa is now our long weekend in Bali, and Capella is now our Como retreat.
