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

Tuesday 07 April 2020: It's the last official day of our 2 week stay home notice! We initially thought that this meant we could only step out of the flat at the stroke of midnight, but recently there's been a change of regulations - this means that at 12 NOON ... we are FREE!!! This…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Days 12 and 13)

Sunday 05 April 2020: Yet another productive day today! Finally finished the second of my assignment - a reflective piece that explores the determinants of food choice. Really enjoying this particular module, but as always, learning and actually writing essays are 2 very different things. Had writer's block for this essay one too many times,…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Days 10 and 11)

Decided to combine days 10 and 11 together because I was too caught up with eating on day 10 and hence did not manage to squeeze in time to write an update ooopsie! Here I am now, the night of day 11, trying real hard to recall what I did yesterday... Friday 03 April 2020…

COVID’19: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 9)

6:57AM Once again the body clock strikes again. I'm really amazed at how accurate this is, I mean it's such a weird timing to wake up to pee? Managed to fall into a light sleep after the trip to the bathroom though. 8:00AM Properly woke up this time round, and I'm feeling so much better…

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…
