I’m Missing the Quarantine Already

Things are starting to get back to normal here. The community quarantine has been partially lifted. Almost everyone is allowed outside, except for those considered to be vulnerable – the minors and the retirees.

As a bit of a background, during the quarantine period, I have been part of the workforce allowed outside. We have work on a shifting schedule. One week I have work, one week I don’t. While it has been terrible to the routine – it was sort of relaxing.

Be Careful of Your Sources

Last Friday, we got a bit of an alarming inquiry from my wife’s sister.

“I heard there were positive cases from tests where your husband works?”

Hold up. What?!

Botched Up the Patch Job

In my previous post – I mentioned how our City was in the path of an incoming typhoon, right?

Well, fortunate for us, the path went a lower course and missed us. The most we experienced was some heavy rains around five,  up to seven in the morning.

The day before, which was Thursday, we got ample time to prepare and anticipate for the typhoon. We moved the potted plants we had at the balcony indoors, covered up the washing machine, and I had to do an inspection of the roof above the kitchen.

As if One Crisis Was Not Enough

Hello everyone. How are you all doing in these trying times?

Things are slowly settling here in the Philippines. It would seem that by next week, strict quarantine controls will only be limited to a select few areas. Our city will probably go back to normal next week – well, at least the so called “new normal,” at the very least.

How Are You All Doing?

“Let Me Out!” – Our cat stays at home, too.

Tomorrow marks the start of a more lenient community quarantine measure in our country. I don’t know if that is a good idea, but at least more people will be able to work and get on with their lives.

The virus infections seems to be under control. Probably.

An Amusing Turn of Stats Event

I know this is nothing to be completely happy about – it just means that my blog – which has usually been flying under the radar, must have caught the eyes of a bunch of spambots.

Since I have no new comments in my notifications, I guess I should be thankful that the Spam filter is working as it should be.

But still, it’s funny, and I got a good chuckle out of it. Look at how my blog has performed for the past few days — then suddenly, BOOM!

This reminded me of that post Jim Borden made on his blog,  The Day My WordPress Stats Went Wild. It’s amusing to see such performance out of our blog, eh? Outstanding!

Anyway, my suspicions were mostly confirmed when I saw where most of the views were from. Hahaha…

Well, anyway, that’s all for now. I hope you are having a good day today. Stay safe!

If you like this blog, and the things I post here, I highly recommend that you follow me here. If my current post has not convinced you yet that it is a good idea to follow me, please take a look at my past content and decided then.

See you around, and have a nice day!

Just Checking In. Some Quarantine Stories

Hello everyone! How are you doing in these trying times? I hope you are still sane and able to keep yourselves safe – you know, while staying at home and always washing your hands…

There has been nothing much going on by my end of the world. Buying supplies has been difficult and exhausting – mainly because you have to buy in larger quantities, and often, the things you need to buy are not available due to problems in the supply chain. At least it was not as apocalyptic as I had initially thought. I mean, the canned goods are still untouched, and I am still able to procure some fresh produce.
