Things are ramping up in the international travel space all of a sudden. We’ve been dreaming of New Zealand trips for months, and now, another player has re-entered the arena—Singapore.
Despite our Trans-Tasman bubble being on pause while COVID-19 clusters calm down in various Australian states, the Australian and Singaporean governments have amped up their work on a plan to create a travel bubble between Australia and Singapore.
Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison, has said that he wants the South-East Asian nation to be next in line for quarantine-free travel after New Zealand.
This travel-bubble is going to happen “sooner rather than later” according to ScoMo, as and Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong have confirmed that students would be the first priority travellers within the bubble.
The travel bubble with Singapore would aim to see quarantine-free travel between the countries, once the majority of both countries have been vaccinated for COVID-19.
Of getting the Australian population vaccinated, ScoMo said that there’s “still some time before we reach that milestone, but there is nothing impeding us, as we discussed today, from getting on with the job, of putting systems in place that will enable such a bubble to emerge between Singapore and Australia”.
Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.
Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.
You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.
As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
