Covid-19 MCO : Day #44 (I Ate Big Prawns Today. Jealous Or Not?)

Before the Chinese New Year, my brother (the married one) gifted me a packet of large prawns. He was sharing his stash of prawns (gifted by his wife's customer) with me and of course I gratefully accepted. Rezeki jangan ditolak!

Covid-19 MCO : Day #23 (Hoarder Anonymous)

Today I am feeling good. Mostly because my back is almost healed. Also the consignment of veggies/fruits that I ordered finally arrived, alleviating the anxiety that I was experiencing over the last few days.

Covid-19 : MCO Day #22 (Texas Chicken)

Today I really no mood. Hah! I was like that since yesterday. I think this MCO is starting to get to me. Maybe it is because of my bad back. I can't do much when my back is hurting. But I am recovering, don't worry.

Tuesday 7 April 2020

Covid-19 MCO : Day #21 (Ayam Penyet)

Covid-19 MCO : Day #20 (Broccoli and Leftovers)

It has been almost three weeks already and gah! I feel so sien  today staying at home. This coming from someone who loves to hangout in the house. Imagine how all the party animals are feeling. They must have gone bonkers weeks ago.
