Feast of the Assumption on Seychelles’ La Digue a toned-down affair amidst COVID-19

The Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary on Seychelles’ La Digue Island will be a low-key affair this year with only the celebration of mass being held.   The Aug. 15 celebration typically includes a procession and mass as well as funfairs, music concerts and sporting events. But due to COVID-19, this year, all of these activities are cancelled and only mass will be celebrated.   “With the new normal, we have cancelled all mass gatherings to abide by the new regulations set by the Public Health Authority,” Barbara Barallon, district administrator, told SNA on Monday.   The church also confirmed that there will be no procession this year but instead only mass will be celebrated.  “We will be having three services on that day, one at 9 a.m., one at noon and another at 3 in the afternoon,” Marie Therese Payet from the St Marie parish explained.    The church also confirmed that there will be no procession this year but instead only mass will be celebrated. (File photo: Joe Laurence, Seychelles News Agency) Photo License: CC-BY According to Payet, the decision has been taken to ensure there is enough physical distancing; only 100 people will be allowed in the church at one go. These celebrations will be broadcast live on - SBC - the national radio and television.   Whilst emphasis of the feast is on the religious ceremonies, the Feast of the Assumption on La Digue is also one which provides the opportunity for family reunions.   People especially the Diguois now working or living on the other islands tend to go back home and spend time with their loved ones.   Barallon confirmed that this is being the case for the upcoming feast as most of the guest houses are booked and that “some of these bookings, were done long before COVID-19 and even now people have not cancelled, so this shows that they will still be coming to the island for the weekend.”   With the new normal, all mass gatherings have been cancelled to abide by the new regulations set by Seychelles' Public Health Authority. (File photo: Joe Laurence, Seychelles News Agency) Photo License: CC-BY La Digue is the third-most populated island of the Seychelles – 115 islands in the western Indian Ocean. The event sees hundreds of people travel from the main islands of Mahe and Praslin to La Digue, to celebrate the Feast of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, the Patron Saint.   Roman Catholics from mainly Mahe make the one-and-a-half-hour trip by boat to celebrate the feast with their fellow islanders on La Digue.

Longer wait: Some projects in latest BTO sales exercise may take up to 5 years to complete

SINGAPORE - A number of projects in the mega build-to-order (BTO) sales exercise on Wednesday (Aug 12) may take up to five years to complete due to safety measures introduced at construction sites to curb Covid-19. The Housing Board said home buyers keen on the 1,785-unit UrbanVille @ Woodlands project, a five-minute walk from Woodlands MRT station, will have to wait the longest, at around 62 months. The project is slated to be completed in the second quarter of 2026. The 1,070-unit Costa Grove in Pasir Ris will take between 56 and 58 months, with an estimated completion date in the fourth quarter of 2025. The 472 BTO flats in Bishan and 1,044 flats in Parc Residences @ Tengah have an estimated waiting time of between 52 and 54 months, to be ready around the second or third quarter of 2025. On Wednesday, National Development Minister Desmond Lee acknowledged in a Facebook post that some of the projects have a «longer than normal» completion timeline, which may be of concern to buyers.

Singaporean geek makes goth indie game about being stuck in life during lockdown

While many of us were playing games like FF VII Remake or Doom Eternal while staying home this past year, one geek decided he wanted to use that time to make his own game. So he learned some game development skills from YouTube and created Gloom and Doom, an indie game about being stuck in life. What he ended up with is a quirky visual novel about an ancient ghost named Gloom and a young girl named Wynona who is destined to destroy the world. According to the self-described “game dev noob” Drew Pan, the story is based on his experiences during university. He didn’t know what he wanted to do with his life, his friend was stuck in a lousy job, and another friend couldn’t get out of a toxic relationship. “I sort of combined all of that into a horror concept with a wraith as the protagonist,” he explained.
