It is now day 30 of the nationwide lockdown and it looks like Phase 1 of the National Recovery Plan is seeing no end in sight.
Yesterday I checked the news which reported 6,437 new Covid-19 cases. I screamed right there and then in my living room.
Today saw 6,276 new cases and I felt very down because the numbers were hovering around 5,000+ cases prior to yesterday and like everyone else, I was hoping to see a reduction and not an increase.
I guess I will be stuck at home for a while. I admit that while I am one to enjoy extended time at home, I worry about office work piling up and bank account balance dwindling down.
So to cheer myself up a bit, I went out to the garden to look at my flowers.
I like this Bunga Raya (Hibiscus) because it looks like a bright red pom pom. Too bad there is nothing to cheer at the moment.
If I am not wrong, this plant came all the way from Kuala Terengganu, from my dad's garden.
This is another multi-petal Hibiscus (different from the pom pom type) which I am certain came from my dad's garden.
My Spider Flower is doing well (in spite of pest attack) and produced a few branches that are about to bloom.
Another thing that cheers me up is food.
This is Belle Belle the party girl sleeping it off after an all nighter. Yup, again stayed out last night. Naughty girl!
Tomorrow I go for my vaccination (finally!) and I am feeling a tad apprehensive. Hope all goes well!
