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: Our 14 Day Stay Home Notice (Day 0)

As of now, all Singaporeans returning from abroad will have to serve a mandatory 14 day stay home notice. This means staying inside a room/apartment for 2 weeks straight, and not one foot should be set out of the house, not even to buy groceries. My friends and I who are returning from Adelaide, the…

Week in my life: 16 – 22 March 2020 (Part 1)

Monday 16 March 2020: Can't believe it's only the first day of week 3 of uni and so many changes have been implemented. Got notified that an upcoming annual social gathering event would be cancelled due to the coronavirus situation (disappointing because I was looking so forward to it but oh well it's just a…

A week in my life: Week 2 of school highlights

Currently, it's only the second week of school but I feel as though I'm already swamped with many things - upcoming assignments, personal commitments, going out with friends and socialising, housekeeping duties and basically just staying afloat amidst this hectic period. And it's not even the worse yet - it's barely begun. Perhaps, that is…
