Hi Dear All.
It is tough trying to work from home for such a long period of time. But we have to do what we have to do to keep safe. From Mondays to Fridays, I have my laptop turned on from 8.30am to 5.30pm. In between checking on my work, I watch the news from around the world and home. Everyday we read and hear about what COVID-19 is doing to the world, it sometimes gets quite scary and worrisome. But getting respite from the situation, you get people doing things that make you laugh – instead of the avalanche of sad news on COVID-19 on every TV and radio channel.
On my part, I only go out, with mask on, for grocery shopping only when its absolutely necessary. If I need items that I do not have, I use something that I already have as a substitute. I write down my shopping list. Go into the market/supermarket and buy what I need and leave the place asap.
I google for recipes that I have never tried before and experiment on them. Mostly turn out good because I choose those with many reviews and with a five star ratings. So far, from Day One to Day Thirteen, I have not repeated any meal for lunch and dinner. I have baked different types of cakes and breads. My youngest daughter and I embarked on a Sourdough Project and we have baked several lovely loaves of sourdough breads which we enjoy for our breakfasts.
I have started to learn how to play the ukelele (my second daughter gave me a beautiful one and I never got around to learn how to play it until now) and I am enjoying it.
I practise dancing on my own and doing dance exercises to keep fit cos there have been loads of input.
Group chatting with family and friends, sharing jokes and latest updates on almost anything under the sun keeps me sane and watching the Youtube channels.
After COVID-19 is defeated, I would love to travel (had to cancel my trip in April and June), catch up with family and friends and go jalan jalan at the malls and browse the supermarket shelves, slowly.
If you like, you can share with us what you have been doing and what you would love to do when the COVID-19 virus is defeated?
In the meantime, follow the rules, take care and keep safe.

P.S. Terence, will try to get to doing the recipe requested. Hopefully soon.
