If you are celebrating the year of the Ox with your reunion or celebratory meals at home during the 15 days of the Chinese New Year celebrations, we take a look at some of the takeaway or delivery options available.
Here’s also a Public Service Announcement reminding you to wash your hands often. According to a survey on 1498 people conducted by Walch, 9 in 10 respondents said they wash their hands more often than they use to pre-COVID. 7 in 10 said they wash their hands fewer than 10 times in 24 hours. 7 in 10 also said they wash their hands after receiving a delivered package.
Wash your hands for at least 20 seconds to effectively clean them. Walch’s CNY campaign “Gift Health. Gift Wealth.” encourages Singaporeans to boost hyggiene practices and bring Walch Speed Foaming Automatic Hand Wash into the homes of Singaporeans celebrating Chinese New Year.
