Do you know what is the story of the renowned Dragon Boat Festival? One of the most enduring legends associated with this celebration tells the story of Qu Yuan, an incorruptible minister of state during the Warring States era of China. Once a trusted advisor, he was banished by his emperor due to political intrigue and in despair, threw himself into the river and ended his life. Because he was well-loved by the common folk, fishermen started to beat their oars against the water in a desperate attempt to stop the man-eating fish in the river from devouring his body. Others threw cooked rice wrapped in leaves into the water, in the hope that the fish would eat them instead. The stories have fused well with the tradition of Chinese fishermen using dragon-shaped boats to appease river ‘dragons’, which evolved into a sport during the Han dynasty.

At TTS, we are always nurturing the culture of gratitude. Thus, the management had taken the opportunity by giving out dates to our Muslim employees during the fasting month. Breaking the fast with dates has always been a Ramadan tradition. Dates are also particularly beneficial because they are high in sugar and vitamins such as potassium and magnesium as well as an excellent source of fibre and carbohydrates.
Let’s get vaccinated! We are pleased that our comrade, Alfred Lim, is taking the initiative to help get the word out about the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines. The faster we can get eligible people vaccinated against COVID-19, the sooner we can protect our health services, save lives and come back together.
