Today is day one of MCO 2.0. The feel is quite different from MCO 1.0 last year. This morning the roads were relatively busy, unlike before where it was near deserted.
When I reached my office, there were lots of cars and it did not feel like MCO at all. I guess that is because many businesses are allowed to operate subject to strict adherence to SOP.
My day went by like normal. It was more quiet than usual (less phone calls, which was nice) and I could work peacefully with more focus.
Then it was time for lunch. Last weekend I only prepped two days worth of lunch, hoping to eat out for the rest of the week. Mana tau MCO was going to be imposed and no dine-in is allowed.
So. I went out to tapau chap fan. Along the way I observed that some restaurants were open and they either removed the tables and chairs or pushed them to the back. They also blocked the entrance with a row of chairs and tables to prevent customers from going inside. You have to place orders at the entrance.
This restaurant, Ipoh Kuey Teow Taugeh & Ayam, (not to be confused with this one) opened in December last year. I wanted to visit but thought to wait out the eager crowd and now I guess I have to wait a little longer.
I also passed by Village Park and saw many Grabfood riders crowing at the entrance. It looks like Village Park is super laku even during the MCO with many orders via delivery. I did not snap any photos since this is not the time to kepoh-kepoh.
But I couldn't resist taking photos of something that always melts my heart.
Kitty cats! I've seen this grey boy around and his tail looked like it had been chopped off. Poor fella.
This is Girl this morning. She woke me up at 2:00 am. Gah! Some more she climbed on my chest and expect me to sayang-sayang her.
So what's lunch?
Stir fried sweet potato leaves, sweet & sour pork and stir fried mustard greens with oyster mushroom. No rice. I am too fat.
A little later I went to The Starling to pick up something for my partner at Jaya Grocer.
The mall was deathly quiet just like how it was last year.
Remember my fritters? I kept some in the freezer and they have come in very handy.
Just reheat in the air fryer at 180C for 8 minutes. Straight from the freezer and 8 minutes later they came out all hot and crispy.
