I’m Getting Fat, and I Know Why

I blame all this hoopla about home quarantine… But in reality, I have no one to point the blame to but myself!

Is This What Retirement is Like?

I may be decades from being of retirement age, yet the current condition where we are encouraged to stay at home made me think…

Is this what retirement is like?

The Paradox of the Free Time

With the self-quarantine in place and a lot of us having to stay at home, you’d think that you’d have a lot of free time to be more productive, right?

Unfortunately, that isn’t the case for me.

Sure, I had more time on my hands, but I ended up using those time to sleep in, watch movies or TVseries… basically not a lot of the “productive output” I was expecting.

What Have You Been Up To?

To help fight the spread of COVID, staying indoors, and away from human interaction is the best we normal human beings can do.

Our work has been on rotation running on a skeletal workforce, and last week was my scheduled off days.

On Community Lockdown

Hello everyone. How are you all doing?

To control the pandemic, our government declared a community lockdown. Cool. I can stay at home, yeah?

For an introvert that can spend hours at home, indoors, that is not a bad news. However, I still have to go to work this week, mainly because I am in the government sector, and my work deals with necessary documents and paper work. The good news is that I am not on the front lines, and that there is no documented infection in our city. The community lock-down is more of a preventive measure to curb the spread.

Don’t Be A Spreader (Coronavirus [covid-19])

With the rise of the issue on Covid-19, I stumbled upon this interesting tweet/video from Max Brooks

And it got me thinking – we should really be more concerned about the people who are more susceptible to this disease. Sure, we may be strong and healthy, and the likelihood of us dying from this disease may be low – but what about those who aren’t?

If us prancing around the place going from person to person is actually helping this disease jump from one place to the other – then we should really do our part. Limit our physical interaction with other people. At least it will slow down the spread long enough for us to be able to develop a cure or at least make human civilization’s immunity to it strong enough to make it as ordinary as the common cold.

Just because you are asymptomatic (not showing any symptoms) does not mean that you are not a carrier.

Stay safe, everyone, and have a nice day!

Fiddling Around With Photography

With my wife diving into her vlog production more recently because we have more free time, I have rekindled my love for photography.

Armed with my Fujifilm Superzoom, which I had with me since 2014 (yeah, it’s old), and my iPhone, I have been taking photos whenever I can.

Sweating Bullets

My phone might be really close to dying out on me.

However, it is an old phone. An Iphone 6s which was handed down to me from my wife. It also had its screen replaced when it took a dive off a high table and smashed its face up.
