My Mid-sem Break/Stay Home Shenanigans

It's been a long time since I found the time to sit down with my laptop and let my thoughts run free, let my fingers fly across the keyboard. Which is quite ironic, considering how it's currently my 2-week mid semester break; yet I'm writing less than I used to when school was still ongoing.…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 8)

6:57AM This is the third time I've woken up at this timing because of my bladder's urge to relieve itself. I guess internal circadian rhythms are really a thing - I don't even have to set an alarm in the mornings anymore, my body just wakes up automatically and heads for the toilet first thing…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 7)

Tuesday 31 March 2020: It's the halfway mark of our stay home notice! Time is passing slowly yet quickly at the same time - can't believe it's been a week since I came back to Singapore. I'm slowly settling into a new sort of routine in this small apartment. It also feels like I'm living…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 6)

7:30AM Maybe because it's Monday so the whole house was up early this morning once more. 8:30AM Started work! Had 2 lectures to go through today, but thankfully they weren't too painful to go through. Managed to sit through the both of them with a cup of cold coffee. 12PM Took a short break and…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 5)

Wow, can't believe that it's already day 5 of our stay home notice. Kept thinking that it was still day 4 for some reason. 1 weekend down, 1 more to go! 8:00AM Got out of bed after lying around for close to an hour. There was greater inertia this morning, but managed to pull myself…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 4)

7AM: Body clock once again in action, and I'm up! Spent about an hour lazing in bed scrolling through my phone and catching up on all the latest news to grace my feed. I also ended up buying a cooking pot - nope it's not a typo, yes I really did buy kitchenware within the…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 3)

7:15AM Woke up slightly later today, but still early considering I'm studying from home and I have no lessons scheduled for the day. I guess there's some truth to those who say that the lines between work and rest are blurred when one does it in the comfort of home - I find that these…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 2)

Thursday 26 March 2020: 6:30AM Body clock woke me up bright and early this morning, 1.5 hours before my alarm was due to ring. But no matter, this means I can take my own sweet time to get ready in the morning. It was a chill leisurely period, where I brushed my teeth, washed my…

COVID'19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 1)

Wednesday 25 March 2020: Today is the official first out of the fourteen days of our stay home notice. The 4 of us woke up at around the same time (7:15AM SG time). I'm quite surprised, because I thought that the others will sleep in after such a long and tiring day yesterday. As of…

COVID'19: The Journey Back Home

Because of the evolving pandemic situation that's worsening globally, my friends and I made the decision to fly back home instead of remaining in Adelaide. What a turn of events indeed - just in February, I changed my flight at the last minute and flew 2 weeks in advance from Sg to Australia so that…
