Is COVID-19 getting you down? You're definitely not alone. No travelling, no events, no big social gatherings, can't even go to the movies, no intimacy... But in all honesty, at this stage, we're just grateful that Singapore's one of the few cities not on full lockdown.

Well, not yet anyway. We'll see.

That's why it was so heartening to see Singaporeans nationwide applauding from their homes the efforts of all front-line workers who toil day and night in the fight against COVID-19. Local business and F&B operators are also giving thanks to these everyday heroes in their own ways.

Indeed, it's times like these that gestures and messages of love, hope, positivity and wisdom are needed more than ever. Wherever you find it, however you show it, the important thing is to stay strong, stay sane, and stay united.




Freedom, resilience and grace are the three core messages of this young but aspiring jewellery brand. Of the three, resilience is probably the virtue we need the most right now. And buying from Avyanna means supporting the local economy, too, as all their products are made in Singapore.
