DAY 12 LOCKDOWN: When the rich people whines

I have nothing much to update. I guess "nothing much" is being part of my daily life for now. I watched the Itaewon Class till 5am the night before and woke up at 12pm. I completely ditch my responsibility to feed my family, and everyone had to eat biscuits for breakfast. LOL! I begin to miss my single life. Having people relying on you sucks.

DAY 11 LOCKDOWN: Let's Talk About Food

In Malaysia, we're left with 2.5 months of rice. That is not enough for all because the rich will hoard the supply and some sellers might hide it to sell when supply is low. This is a serious issue. We've not touched on the supplies of vegetables and meat. In other words, we're f**ked.

DAY 10 LOCKDOWN: I Begin to Miss Nature

  • Me: Baby papa, after all these ordeal, let's go to Monkey Beach 
  • Baby papa: After all these, I want to go somewhere further.
  • Me: Where???
  • Baby papa: Cameron Highlands.
  • Me: I thought you're going to say Switzerland. 
  • Baby papa: Times like this, we have to contribute to our own country's economy. So Cameron Highlands!

DAY 9 LOCKDOWN: Not a Good Time to be Sick

I missed one day of the entry, but here's to make up where I have left out.

DAY 8 LOCKDOWN: Extension & Books to Read

The Movement Control Order is extended till 14th April 2020. That is another 19 days. The past 8 days were hard enough. I'm not sure if there's enough food for everyone, because the rich will be stocking up without hesitation.

DAY 7 LOCKDOWN: Learning Korean

A few people asking me about my online Korean class that I'm taking. It is absolutely free! You can learn it too and since you probably have the time at home.

DAY 6 LOCKDOWN: Netflix Shows to Watch

Today I'm physically exhausted from cooking daily. Cooking in my house isn't like how I used to do when living alone. My grandma has a long list of SOP to follow, that exhaust me. For example, every time I cook, I have to clean the entire kitchen. It doesn't help when I still have to work from home for 8 hours, then cook 2 meals daily. I can't stand another day of the lockdown.

DAY 5 LOCKDOWN: Only Head of the Family Allowed to Leave the House

Random photo of the ocean because last night I dreamt I went to an island resort. Hence a throwback photo from my Redang trip.

DAY 4 LOCKDOWN: Grocery Situation

I went out for grocery shopping today, it's madness out there. Initially, I went to AEON because I still have lots of AEON vouchers to spend. But the parking was limited and there is a sea of human at the entrance waiting for their turn to go in. I think they limit the number of pax to enter, but I'm not sure because I didn't get down from the car to check out. I went to Giant instead.



It's not something to be proud of because I could get caught by the authorities. It was a short drive within an 800m radius from my house. I was trying to find a cake to cheer myself.

DAY 2 LOCKDOWN: Fear of Food Scarcity

Random thoughts today involve a lot of food supply in my house. I begin to think that I don't have enough of the food supply to last for 14 days. What trigger this was, I spoiled an egg when boiling it. There was a hairline crack and I didn't monitor the pot. So it was completely a mess, I had to throw the egg away. In normal circumstances, I will just throw the egg away without any remorse. But today, I was afraid I don't have enough to feed the family.

DAY 1 LOCKDOWN: Battling with Working-from-Home Environment

First thing first, I know you're going to say Malaysia has no lockdown. I personally think communication is clearer when we label it as "lockdown" instead of Restriction of Movement (ROM). When mentioned ROM, people take things lightly, thinking it is ok to loiter around, so I much prefer the term lockdown.

I decided to keep an account of what is happening for the next 14 days (ROM starts from 18-31 March 2020, may be extended if the number of infection increases). I think I may never live another life to experience this happening again, so I want to be able to look back on what happened.


Panic Shopping: 50 Things To-Buy in case of Lockdown

It seems like the coravirus activity isn't slowing down anytime. In Malaysia, we see a spike of people infected on daily basis. At the moment, we still have the luxury of partial lockdown, which means, we still can go out to shop for essential items.

Here are some items that I've narrowed down in case of full lockdown instruction. Better be prepared than be sorry right? Scroll to the bottom for a downloadable list where you can copy & paste into your phone Notes.

DIY Money Bowl to Attract Wealth

Most of us have different rituals when it comes to manifesting for wealth. Mine is pretty simple. I keep a money bowl. It started off as a catch-all bowl for my loose change. After a while, I realize that having the habit of gathering money in a bowl is actually a practice that many people did to attract wealth.

4 Vegetarian Restaurants in Melaka to try

Last October, I started to adopt a vegetarian lifestyle. I must admit, that didn't stick for long. But I discovered the pescatarian diet (which means I don't eat meat such as chicken, beef, pork, lamb, etc). Most of my diet consists of vegetables and fish. The vegetable is at the base of my food pyramid and fish would be on the tip of the pyramid.

I didn't have any problem eating out because of the fish diet gives me plenty of choices on the menu. Also, vegetarian restaurants now are more sophisticated. That leaves me a lot of options when dining out. Here are the few vegetarian restaurants that I frequently visit when in Melaka:
