Unboxing the latest bag from my favourite brand Gaston Luga. This is the new addition to the waterproof collection bag. I would say this new Tate Bag is kind of suit for a fickle-minded like me. This bag is not only spacious but also versatile. I can carry this as a backpack and also as Tote slings it on my shoulder. Awesome!


I find that this bag is even perfect for a 2 Days 1 Night backpacker. As long as you pack your item light.

I was planning to carry this bag with me for my first trip after 2 years. Well, don't get too thrilled. It's just a domestic road trip. I wish could go a bit further like over the sea but with the uncertainty and others, I won't take the risk. Not now, at least. Better worry now than sorry later!

MILKLAB Launches Oat Milk in Malaysia

 




Attention coffee lover!

Australia's most popular barista milk for coffee has added Oat Milk to its offering. MILKLAB is now available in Malaysia through select participating cafes and food services outlets.


MILKLAB Oat milk is versatile for use in both hot and cold beverages, and is the new creamy alternative to dairy milk with 100 per cent Australian oats, with a rich and creamy mouthfeel and a texture similar to a full cream dairy, to produce the perfect pour.


Rich with a natural, subtle sweetness that complements the flavour of espresso coffee, oat milk is the fastest-growing plant-based beverage, having grown by more than 400 per cent since 2017, according to the Cafe 2025 Report.




The MIKLAB brand is synonymous with the range-solution of milk offerings that would not only suit a variety of tastes and dietary needs but also address the increasing number of consumers worldwide looking to switch from regular daily to plant-based milk. The new Oat milk offering to the collection is after spending two years time in development. 

This new addition would give an advantage to baristas, resellers and distributors, coffee business owners and connoisseurs, as well as 'plant- curious coffee aficionados who currently drink dairy and other plant-based milk with their coffee. 

According to an independent research panel, MILKLAB Oat milk outperforms the current market leader for taste and overall appreciation.


Introducing MILKLAB Life & Coffe Consumer Incentive Program


Life's special moments often happen between friends and loved ones, usually over a cup of favourite cafe latte. Girlfriends catching up in their favourite cafe, two love birds going on their first date over coffee, or a bookworm enjoying their new novel with a cup of mocha.


Having a good cup of coffee is an essential part of our lives today. With coffee lovers having a more discerning palate, it is important to have good quality milk to complement the coffee and enhance the flavour. Coffee lovers who are health conscious and prioritize healthy eating will enjoy the delicious plant-based MILKLAB Oat milk with their coffee, now available across Malaysia.

Let's Make Slushy In One Minute

 



Gosh! the weather now has gone hair wired. It supposedly isn't this hot in the month of Nov onwards, right. But seriously, it has been freaking hot, nowadays! I don't usually drink ice because it will make me sick. Let me use the hot weather as an excuse to indulge myself with ice cooling drink. Once in a while, I need to stop being too good. Let's enjoy the paradise taste and worry about in hell later. Huh?


Recently, a box from Ambrosial reached me. As far as my knowledge this brand is famous for its delicious Greek-Yogurt style drink. I have tried that before, it tasted delicious when drink it, chilled and good for guts too.  


The ambrosial box contains :


πŸ‘‰ 6 boxes of Yili  Youngfun Milk Flavoured Drink

πŸ‘‰ One Lazy Ghost Squeeze Cup




Yili Youngfun Milk Flavoured Drink 


The one that reached me is Yili Youngfun Milk Strawberry Flavour. To be honest, I am not a big fan of strawberry milk. Sacrifice my palate for this review. WTH! 


How does Yili Youngfun Milk Strawberry Flavour taste?


It has a rich, milky texture and lovely strawberry fruity taste. For Muslim friends, worry not. This is a halal product, even though this milk drink is made in China. I would recommend drinking this chill rather than room temperature. For someone who doesn't really like Strawberry milk, this tastes surprisingly good!




Lazy Ghost Squeeze Cup


I never knew such a thing as a slushy cup exist. The slushy that I know only from 7e. kekekeke... The instruction in Lazy Ghost Squeeze Cup stated I can make my own slushy in just one minute. Seriously? Hard to believe this kind of technology even exist. 


How to make a slushy in just one minute?


Step 1 πŸ‘‰ Place the Lazy Ghost Squeeze Cup in the freezer for 6 to 8 hours. I left mine overnight in the freezer to enjoy the slushy the next day.


Step 2 πŸ‘‰ Pour in your favourite drink in the freeze slushy cup. It can be a yoghurt drink, milk, smoothie or even juice. I want to get the 7e slushy feel. So I add in grapefruit black tea with lemon soda. 


Step 3 πŸ‘‰ Put on the lid and squeeze it for one minute or less. 


Step 4 πŸ‘‰ Enjoy your slushy with your heart content. 


If you are interested to get your hand on Ambrosial greek style yoghurt drink , Yili Flavoured Milk drink or even a gift box with fun Lazy Ghost Slushy Cup, please visit :

Expensive Morning Business

 





I went out for the annual standard car service last week. Usually, I can wait at the service centre but not this time. The nearest place to wait was McD which is just a walk away from the centre. The lady who attended to me said they require 3 hours to complete. 


I was OK to wait at McD for 3 hours provided the place isn't that crowded. I ordered the small rice porridge and one cappuccino. Not many people, just around 3 couples. Aihhhh! Is it valentines day already? 


Ate my breakfast peacefully while browsing my phone. Isn't this is how people kill their time nowadays? Finished the porridge and notice the crowd started to build up. Aihhhh... Then at the same time, my bowel is calling to be emptied. Aishhhh!!! not now. I have a long way to go. I thought have emptied this morning. Why suddenly so active? I checked the time and it's only 30 minutes after I left my car. I still have around 2 and a half hours more to go.


The situation totally needs to go. So sian ar? McD toilet. Ewwwww.... Not so pleasant to do my business.


I was sitting there while sipping away my cappuccino and at the same time doing some calculations to solve this problem of mine. I check out the Grab Apps for a ride back. Ahhhhh... it will cost me RM20 plus one ride. The return ride will cost me around RM40 plus. At this moment, that place becomes more and more crowded. Damn it! I am exposed to risk. Not to mention this URGENT business. Otteoke!


Ahhh....Na Meolla! Click confirm ride back. The car arrived in a blink. Huh! this fella must be on standby around here. Anyway, it was a breeze 40 minutes ride back home. I was opening my house's door when the phone rang.


WTH??? Don't tell me. Don't tell me.  I saw the number it was from the service centre. Ah! is there some problem with my car and more cost to add? 


Me: Hello!

Lady : Hello! Miss Rina. I am XXX from XXXX. You can is ready to collect.

Me : ???

Paused for 30 secs. WTH!! WTH!!

Lady : Miss Rina?

Me : Ya? already?

Lady : Yes. Miss Rina

Me : OK


I walked into my house, put down my sling bag. Sat down on the toilet bowl and try to figure out the whole situation. This must be the most expensive morning business, I ever had in my 47 years of living. Jjajanae Jjinja!!!! (So annoying! - in Korean)

I started to console myself. Since I am one believer of 'Things Happen for A Reason'. Finished my expensive business and book the ride back to the service centre. Just hope, I didn't get the same ride. 


Another swift ride back. Collect my car and head back home again. 


I won't say it's a waste of rides but I would say, I could save some money if I did more calculations before making my decision. Hishhh!!!! DD...


Additional rant: Hate this google AdSense and analytic things. It getting more and more technical day by day to maintain a blog. The page views drop a lot with this new upgrade by google. My AdSense has disappeared apparently they accused me of invalid traffic. I don't even do anything,weiii!!! Who the hell is playing around keep clicking my ads and it becomes invalid. I'm really not into digital thingy. Now have to spend time understanding the new algorithm. ** big time menyampah ni**

Something I have To Deal With

 





October is my busy month ever after long hiatus. Sounds like a celebrity huh? 

I went to do some inspection on my new home works. I have not been visiting that place due to MCO. My kitchen cabinet still missing the tabletop. Apparently, the one I chose is out of stock. Then I have to choose again. Then the stock is only available in a few weeks time. Finally, they are installing today on birthdate. 


From my site inspection findings, the contractors thought an Eight feet tall person is living in that place. I am only 5ft 6inches tall. The rain shower head was beyond my reach at all. Too high up. Damn it! I feel like a midget walking into my main shower room. Can't even reach out to the showerhead to adjust the direction properly. I need a climb a ladder just to tweak the showerhead direction. Even the water heater switch is way up beyond my reach. Re-do? Gosh! they will ruin my tiling. Let me accept this as fate?


My beautiful ceiling light is already out of light. WTH! Gosh...I need to change the led light before even live in the house. Look like I need to practise ladder climb. I need to add better lightings though. The current one isn't that bright. I hate the dark houses.


They haven't installed the bidet, curtain rod, blinds and auto gate. That's how it is. You need to be monitored to deliver a good job, right? No wonder every job require a Hawke eye to scrutinized every single thing.


Last week, I went to do the first round of cleaning like sweeping out the dust and mop the floor.Then scattered around snake repellent powder. Hope I don't end up burn down the place before even get the chance to live there. I have ordered rat, lizard, cat and any sort of insects repellent. I am still waiting for the item. Super paranoid mode on. 


Back home after that cleaning day, I end up on my backrest for a week. My arm was all swollen. See? I don't self-claimed that Princess title for no reason. WTH!  I can't overwork myself. But hire people to clean is not even a choice for me. I need to do it myself to save costs. If I have good motor skills, I will install the curtain rod and everything on my own. Arghhh!!! I wish...


After all the installation is complete next week, I need to do the major cleaning and then have to rest for a week. Old body, like that lor... Then,  I will start to move my small items in and arrange them accordingly. After all, the small item arranges nicely and is 50% livable and the internet connection needs to be up too, I will arrange for the big thing to move in.  I don't have many big items. Not much furniture. to move in. No dining table or even a sofa or TV. isk isk isk...I will furnish it slowly when I move in later. One thing, I can assure you, I have more than enough kitchen electrical appliances from my blog review job. 


I need to choose a good and lucky date to officially move in too. My house has a bit of feng shui kind of things too. No harm right? Just use the logic la..... no need for feng shui master to come. Act smart again la ni... No Lil bit then talk sound like a know it, right? Haih!


Someone ask if can visit my new home. Cannot la.. I don't have enough cups and plates to serve people. Even the chairs are just for me. Basically, this is still a single woman set up home. I want to live a minimalist possible so that if I pass away, the live one doesn't have to do a lot of clean up. Does this make sense? At the same time, I learn a lot while packing all my stuff to move out. Many junks to sort and throw out. Urghhh!!! I don't want to be cursed out while resting in my graveyard. I can't even walk out of the graveyard to correct my wrongdoings!


Ecewah!!!! Talk like so angel like that,huh? When started to live there, I end up shop for many things. kakakaka...Gosh! I can see my future really well. ** facepalm **


OK! enough with my rant. I am practically feeling super nervous to live in my new home. Hopefully, no neighbour want t to talk to me. I will rather be MYOB kind of living condition. But again, I never know, right? Who knows after living there I become a famous social butterfly, out of a sudden! Human change, right? 


More updates soon. IMA is super busy these days. Packing my things in the box.

Why October Month Is So Special?

 



October month has always been a special and meaningful month. Not because it's Halloween month. 12th October is my birthday and to be exact this year will be my 47th birthday. If God gives the permission, I will be reaching my FIVE-SERIES tiers in 3 years time. Urghhh! Even now, I feel like living in the 60s body.  


As usual, no celebration because I don't have friends to celebrate though. My last birthday celebration is a farewell to my most fav workplace. So, I was a bit traumatic for a so-called birthday celebration, though! It's a good intention from others to make them feel less guilty towards me. I allow that to happen and it hurts me until now. 


I usually travel abroad and enjoy my moment alone wondering at other countries like a lost soul. My last birthday trip was in the year 2019 to Tianjin. I remember wandering around at the Italian Street there and enjoy an Italian Pizza in one of the Alfresco Italian Restaurants. Then fill up my special day cafe hopping and admire the building architecture at Wu Dao Dao street. I miss that moment. 


This year, I stuck here in Malaysia. Struggling to move home. The never-ending project because I still couldn't let go of much of my stuff in my old home. That is why I hate being close to anyone or even anything. I can't let go of things easily. Hopefully, this will come to closure in November. I still haven't survey for a comfy couch, table and chair  I am still very selective about this, though! It will take time for me finally furnish my new home.


I still haven't done my birthday shopping spree at ZALORA yet. Aihhhh...really not in the mood to do online shopping these days. Luckily the shopping voucher expiry isn't so soon.


What should I do on 12 Oct 2021 ?

Any idea?


Not a big fan of cakes at all but suddenly, I am craving for a good and delicious Pandan Gula Melaka Cake,

Reputable Developer Doesn't Guarantee A Good Quality House

 


I am writing based on my own personal experience. I made my decision to settle down and live in the landed property as my retirement home. Location wise, certainly far from the city centre due to affordability. I also consider the developer reputation to avoid any abandonment in the middle of the project. I will cry a river, blood tears if this happens to my hard earn money. I bought mine from the best property developer in Malaysia.


I received the key end of last year,2020. MCO and everything so everything at a halt for almost a year now. Revive back the plan only on September 2021. I plan to move at end of October this year or early Nov 2021. 


Since I don't have anyone to rely on. Everything needs to be settled on my own. Using my two not so experience eyes screening the handover house and armed with a sticker on my hand. I was so disappointed with the end products. The quality is worst and for the price that I am paying, not to mention the reputation of the developer. Damn it! for that so many defects and a long list to re-do. 


Of course! I went all out to report and request for them to rectify. They took a month to do that 'so called' repair work. WTH! After another inspection, the repair is not even a repair. So disappointed. But I don't want to waste my energy. If they can hand over that kind of quality home to the owner, I bet their level of corruption internally is just as bad as our political scene too. Ahh... I let God judge them la. Why stress up myself to deal with a moron who wants to live life dishonestly, right? So, I accept as it is! Although, mine has a long list of defects but considers myself still lucky. Mine is still liveable if just close my eyes tight! Some others have the worst defect such as leakage whenever it rain and the de-attached tiling and flooring parquet. Terrible, right?


I read in the FB group for the homeowner, some of them is now considering selling off the house. 'Beh Tahan'. Imagine the leakage every time raining, the report then repairs and then it happens again. It's like a never-ending kind of ordeal for the family. So they wanted to move out.


Well, if you drive into the township, you may fall in love with it and make you want to stay there. It's like everyone dreams home. The outside look so nice for now. To be honest, everything is still new. New things always look nice to everyone eyes.  I always visual something far down. With the quality of works handover to me, this township going to be a massive rundown place in just 10 years time. Living there will be a nightmare, though. So, I pray hard to God to take my life faster.


Sometimes, buying a home need some luck and fate too!


It has been stressful when received the house. Not to mention the kitchen cabinet works seems like still work in progress forever due to my small job to them. WTH! I put up with everything. Hopefully, they can complete it in 2 to 3 weeks time from now. But now, I am trying my best to accept mine with an open mind. I am glad to be alone for all this. I bet God have a plan for me.

Playing Solitaire is The Best Mind Therapy

 


I personally find that Solitaire is the most interesting card game. For me, solitaire keeps my mind busy when I need to forget something or become mind restless. This is a sort of mental activity to keep me stay sane. I can't be reading books, working or even watch TV or even listen to the radio all the time, right? Playing 


Most importantly, I don't need to pay for it. I always play solitaire online free games. No registration is needed too. I just need to open the website either on mobile or desktop and start to play for free.


I usually play Classic Solitaire at the free online game website solitaire.org. 


How to play Classic Solitaire?


In general, this is a sort of stack cards game. Just remember the sequences on suits and rank, for example, the cards will be stacked as K, Q, J, 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4,3 2, A with no mixed suits.


Basically, in summary, the rules of Classic Solitaire are :


πŸƒ Usually, cards are arranged from left to right, with the bottom-most of the card each pile placed face-up;

πŸƒ All you need to do is to move the cards from the Table to the Foundations beginning with the Ace of each suit.

πŸƒ Then you need to draw a pile for the source of the new card and draw one card at one time;

πŸƒ You can move the card with lower consecutive and place it below the higher rank. Note that that can happen only if the card is in a different colour;

πŸƒ Two ways to end the Classic Solitaire. Game over only when all cards are cleared or no possible move left.


What is the scoring for Solitaire?

If you are competing with others, TIME is the essence. You will win the game if you are the fastest to complete the game.

A Single-player like me depends on the point system.

How could such easy stacking games be mind therapy or mental exercise?

Well, I myself as a beginner always find myself blocked. This is where you are required to use your brain and find your way out to get the card in order.


Other than Classic Solitaire, there are few types of solitaire games here. I never know that until I found this website. To be honest, all my life I always thought of only one type of solitaire game in the world. 




Klondike Solitaire

How to play  Klondike Solitaire?

You have to move a shuffled deck of cards into four Foundation stacks in ascending order from Ace to King to win the game. Just remember in Klondike Solitaire, Ace is low and King is high. You just lose the game when you're blocked from making the move. I got blocked from the very beginning when I  started this game. kekekeke





Klondike Solitare has no undone button so you need to be extra careful when playing this game. You can get +15 points when you lay a card on the foundation for the first time. If you add a new card to the tableau or turn one over, it will be +5 points. However, you will get -8 points for every 30 seconds. Ahhhhh.... this is why you need to be a quick thinker to win the game.




Spider Solitaire


I still find Spider Solitaire is unreachable for me. It is so difficult for me.


How to play Spider Solitaire?


You are required to assemble thirteen cards of a suit from King to Ace in descending sequence. It will be discarded once you completed all the full suit of thirteen cards. In this game, your brilliant strategy and luck are very important. Don't get yourself block or you will end up losing the game.






You have options on which game mode suit your skill :

Easy - 1 suit
Medium - 2 suits
Hard - 4 suits

Well, if you ask me, I can only complete Easy mode. I still struggle to complete medium mode. Many things to learn.

When playing Spider Solitaire with others, then time is the key. The fastest to complete is the winner. If you are a single player, then scoring is important. You start with 500 points then every move is -1. You will get 100 points for each Royal Flush though.







Free Cell Solitaire



I tried this after founding this free online games website and totally love this. To be honest, it simply easy to complete this game and a good pass time game too.




The game is really simple with just one deck. There are eight rows of cards are dealt to form the Tableau columns and in total 52 cards are used. You can use the four cells to hold a card each. Then you may move any exposed card from the end of a Tableau column to another Tableau column if it creates a descending sequence as long as the colour is different. 

Note that fewer moves is the best for this game to get a better score. So think before you make the next movement.





Pyramid Solitaire



First time try out this game. I find that this one is the fun version of Classic Solitaire.







How to play Pyramid Solitaire?


This game is played with one 52 deck card deck. Deal cards to form a pyramid, starting with a row of one card followed by a row of two cards and so on down to a final row of seven cards. So in total, the pyramid will consist of twenty-eight cards shown face up. Pair cards to a total of thirteen and then moved from play. You can move the Kings without pairing since the Kings are worth thirteen points. You are required to remove all cards from the pyramid in order to complete the game.






Tripeaks Solitaire



This is another fun version of Classic Solitaire. Instead of one pyramid, this one has three peaks. 








How to play Tripeaks Solitaire?


In short, is to clear all the cards from the three peaks. The game is played with one standard deck. Pair cards one at a time to remove them from play and place on top of the discard pile. Note that only open cards can be paired. Just flipped the top card of the deck onto the waste pile when you can't make another move. 
You lost the game if there is no more cards to flip and pair. I am not really a big fan of Tripeaks. I rather play Pyramid over this.








Golf Solitaire


Honestly, I chose this over Pyramid and Tripeaks. Gold Solitaire is suitable for a beginner like me. It took me few minutes to adapt to this game. You may find it really hard to clear all the cards but just aim to clear as many as you can. Be realistic when playing this game. This game is just like its name because same as real golf, a perfect score is hardly achieved.

How to play Golf Solitaire?


You can only move a card from the Table to the Talon pile if no other cards on top of it and it is in sequence. Please note you can only move the top card in each column. Play the cards rank A, 2, 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,J,Q,K. If no more moves are possible just turn cards up one at a time from the stock to the Talon.
For a difficult version, the Ace and King cannot be played on top of each other. The main objective is to clear the thirty-five cards into the Talon pile You win the game when you clear all thirty-five. Otherwise, you lose the game.





Mahjong Solitaire


I have played the Mahjong game before but never tried Mahjong Solitaire. I would say that this is not much different from playing Classic Solitaire. It just this one uses a set of Mahjong tiles rather than cards.


How to play Mahjong Solitaire?


The game is played with 144 tiles which are all laid out before starting the game. Just aim to match the patterns into pairs and remove them from play. You are unable to remove a tile beneath another tile and you can't move a tile if it is locked. You are the winner if all the tiles are removed from the play.


I love playing Solitaire at Solitaire.org because its automatically deal the cards and if I don't know how to play a certain game, there are guides and tips for me to refer to. The only minus plus for me is whenever I want to start a game it takes a long time to load the game and make me wait. After the game starts, I can play really smooth. Other than that, I really enjoy my time at this game website. Oh! you can opt to play either on desktop or on your mobile. No need to download any applications or registration. Basically, you just visit the solitaire.org website and start to play.

Samsung Smartphone The All-New Galaxy Z Series 5G

Signs Your Spine is Out Of Alignment






Just like a car out body has misalignment spine condition. Misalignment spine is so uncomfortable, it can lead to serious problems if don't solve it quickly. Trust me! I am writing from my personal experience.
I bet many of us don't realize this and accepting it as part of normal life. We thought it was just part of us and eventually will heal off.


So, What is a Spinal Misalignment?



The spine is our body main core. It must stay strong and stable to support the musculoskeletal part of the bot to keep it straight upright. It protects the central nervous system too. Our body will maintain strong and easy mobility without interruption if we have a strong and perfect alignment spine 




Here are the top signs that your spine is out of alignment :


1. Constantly suffer from headaches, back pain or joint pain

2. Frequently crack your neck, back or other joints of your body 

3. Uneven wear out the heel of your shoes 

4. Stiff neck, back,  hips and other joints. It couldn't turn easily

5.  Often catch the flu. Flu is not necessarily from the virus. You can catch the flu if the misalignment blocked the central nervous systems and effected the immune systems.

6.  Numbness or tingling feeling in your hands or feet.

7.  Always feeling tired and sluggish. Most people feel fatigued but if you still feel the same after getting eight hours of rest each night, then it's not normal.


How to treat misalignment?


One of the best solutions is to get a Chiropractors to examine your spine. They will tell you what treatment suit you. But writing from my personal experience, the cost of the treatment can burn out your wallet in a long term. I end up signing up for 16 packages which cost me a freaking RM8k plus. Every week to visit the Chiro for treatment is daunting and horror for me. I feel like surrender myself to be tortured and listening to the sound of my bone cracking. It's so scary. It does feel better right after and it doesn't last at all. It came back and the pain is still there.


For the long term solution, I chose to straighten up and strengthen my spine using a body posture corrector.

Maintain good posture while you sit, walk and sleep is the most important thing you can do for a long term solution to spine health. But you see, easy to say to sit up and walk with your body up straight but maintaining the position isn't as easy as your talk. I can maintain the posture for less than 2 minutes and eventually start slouching after that. **facepalm**


I spent on a body support brace and a good Posture Supporting Chair. My current freelance job requires me to sit in front of my PC most of the time. I bet some of you are doing that while working from home, right?


How a good Posture Supporting Chair could bring a good benefit to your lumbar and spine health?

It's like sitting in a mould and keep you from slouching and assist you with sitting correctly. Eventually, it reduces back discomfort and relieves the back pain too.

If you are looking for a good posture supporting chair can try out the TIRTIR Posture Supporting chair. I have been using this and so far it suits and helps me.

TIRTIR supporting chair has a good specification that I am looking for :


πŸ‘‰ Lightweight and portable

πŸ‘‰ Correct posture to relieve backaches

πŸ‘‰ The material is breathable and the thick cushion is so comfortable fit

πŸ‘‰Lightweight and portable too. I can even use this on my car seat too for a comfortable long hour drive

πŸ‘‰ Versatile, adaptable to any chair from sofa to the dining seats too.


This is how my TIRTIR Posture Supporting Chair looks like.

What Is My New Normal Life In Year 2020 and 2021?



Time passes really fast. It has been two years since all of us has lost our freedom to live our lives like in the year 2019 and before that. We miss the time where we can 'Balik kampung' during the festive time. We long to make use of annual leave for a holiday. 


Many of us have received a double dose of vaccine. I can tell you this is not a ticket to freedom and life like we did in the year 2019 and before. Things have changed! Our freedom has been robbed! The virus has evolved and got stronger day by day. Even our vaccines couldn't catch up to the fast upgrading. Unfortunately, the chance of being infected after vaccines is still high. 


Although the Government has announced the ease of MCO, we have our own responsibility to take care of ourselves. My new normal life in the years 2020 and 2021, or should I drag it further to the years 2022, 2023 and the year after that and after that too? Forever? We have to learn to live among this deadly virus from now on. 


Here how I personally adapting to the new norms :




Face Mask Is Essential Item


I have few types of masks in stock. Never step out of my house without wearing any face mask. I cover up even during taking out my thrash which is on the same floor and only 30 steps away. I added a face shield over my KF94 mask whenever go down to pick up my online delivery order at the lobby. You can call me paranoid but hey....most of the deliverymen in my area kind of put their masks down all the time. I encountered a number of them, not one not two but most of them behave the same. 



Social Distancing


No doubt! Social distancing may be a key component when it comes to containing the virus. Now that the government has announced the eased of MCO. Gosh! I think it is really a challenge for me or all of us to avoid the crowd. I am considered lucky to live on the first floor. I opt to walk down and up the staircase most of the time unless carrying heavy things which require a trolley. I rather wait for the next lift than sharing it with others. I become a thick face to tell off other people to board the same life with me. I prefer to step out to give way to stubborn people! Gosh! we met this kind of people all the time who live their lives to danger others. Why bother to fight with them? 




Avoid Gatherings


I really don't understand when people are a relatively crying joy at the cinema opening announcement. I would do the same if I am working with the cinema itself. Big No as the patron. The virus is no longer about close contact infectious. They are now airborne. Imagine watching a movie in a dim close-up area for more than one hour. I bet there will be no popcorn or drink selling. We have to put our masks up throughout the entire hour. Urghh! I will feel seriously ill with suffocation doing that.




Online Shopping 


I bet most business owners have since changed their way of business and adopting from offline to online. I shop all my groceries from fresh to dry goods through online shopping. Avoid the crowd through online shopping is safer. Who said don't need to shop for wardrobe and beauty items during MCO?  I still need to apply sunscreen and other skincare despite being indoors most of the time. I bought most of the skincare products through online shopping websites. One or two or maybe more clothes to please me. I need to be happy and take care of my mental health too. (facepalm) 




My Handbag


Ever since this whole pandemic era started 2 years ago, it changes my life. What is the must item in the handbag during this new norm life? Not sure about other women handbag, but mine comes with an antibacterial wet wipe instead of just a regular soft tissue. Face mist has changed with hand sanitiser. A backup face mask is always on standby in the bag. I carry a sanitiser gun with me in my handbag if out in the public. (facepalm for my paranoid syndrome). I focus on the eye make-up instead of full-face makeup under the mask. So, instead of lipstick or lip tint, mascara and concealer to cover my eye bag are essential for me. I brought my own fork and spoon too, just in case!



Travelling Plan


I put all my travelling plans at a halt for 2 to 3 years or maybe longer. I dare not dream anything at this moment. I hope the world health improve and everything at ease in 2 to 3 years time. Those 'Travel addicted' can go on with their plan. As for myself, I decided to live with the flow with wait and see. Don't want to take the risk by following the desire. 


Give yourself a pat on your back if you survive this new normal lifestyle. Whatever situation we are in right now, be nice to yourself and others. Stay safe everyone and live life happily.
