2021, 5 Months In…

The year is 2021, the month is now May. 5 months into the year. You know how most people are saying that we need a reset button for 2020 or a refund for the year as it was just almost total BS? Well, 2021 is starting to look like another loop of crazy. Well, atleast in my opinion as I’ve been dealt some horrible cards the first few months of the year. I was truly disappointed and deeply hurt because my dreams and hopes were shattered just like that. But, there is some positive out of it though. It’s like I’ve been given a second chance in the love department. LOL. This time, I’m going to choose wiser. I’m only going to let someone who is worthy and deserving of my love in.

Work has been moving forward. I’ve acquired some new clientele which is good. I have some new roles to work on. Let’s close some roles and make that money!! 😀

I can’t help but miss my Mom more recently due to my Birthday, Mother’s Day and her Birthday that’s coming up very soon. I hope that you’ve been well my Dearest Mom. Please forgive me for the tears that I’ve shed over the months. I know you wouldn’t want to see me sad but, how can I not miss your presence. We used to chat and speak to each other every other day and I love the way you used to laugh about things and nag me about things. I miss your love and caring nature.

I’m still on the fence about getting the C-19 Vaccination as there’s a few options now. To wait and get Pfizer sometime next year or to volunteer for AstraZaneca or Sinovac? Choices… I really dunno TBH. But, if that’s the only way for me to travel, I’ll have to eventually take it no matter what as Boy, I really want to fly. The last time, I flew internationally was in 2016. That was freaking long ago. Can you imagine, it’s been almost 5yrs since I last left this country? Damn!!

I’m starting to miss being able to just travel. Remember how it was Pre-C-19 Days? If you wanted to travel, all you would need is your passport and air tickets mainly. Now, you need to fill up a gazillion forms, get C-19 tested prior to your flights and follow so many freaking SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures). Will we ever go back to how it used to be? As it’s now a year plus that we’ve been having to live in this C-19 times. I think it makes many wonder and ponder this issue.

On a different note, is this a blessing in disguise that this happened or is it a curse? I think most will say the later. Well, for me I think if it wasn’t for it, I wouldn’t have seen some peoples’ true colours and I would most likely still be stuck in a hurtful relationship.

That being said, do you think this pandemic has made people drift apart by the different challenges that it brings with it or does it make people appreciate each other more and drive people closer in the process? I know that this tests relationships especially those in LDRs (Long Distance Relationships) as flying is way trickier than it used to be. If you’re in one now, how long will you be willing to wait for your partner? If it was me, my answer would be, no matter how long it will take. I will patiently wait and, I’d surely keep intouch over Videocalls, Voicecalls and Texting for sure. Thank God and the brilliant minds behind those awesome interactive apps.

How’s your 2021 been for you? I’d like to hear about it in the comments below.

MCO 2.0 (Movement Control Order)…

Malaysia is implementing Lockdown Round 2 or better known as MCO 2.0 which started on the 13th of January till 26th of January 2021. I’m sure that it will extend though based on previous experience last year. So, what do we know from it? What are the SOPs (Standard Operating Procedures) ?

  1. No traveling.
  2. No social gatherings.
  3. Travel limited to 10km radius from home.
  4. 2 pax per car.
  5. Only takeaways are allowed for the food sector (Restaurants & Eateries).
  6. Supermarkets, Healthcare services, Banks are allowed to operate.
  7. Gyms and Pool to be closed.

To be honest, I’m okay with this. I have no complains about it. I know the Furkids are happier too as I’ll be at home more since we can’t go out to eat during this time. I’ve started going through my old clothes and have collected those that I no longer can wear or doesn’t spark any joy and have decided to recycle them by giving it to the Lady that cleans the corridors of my service suite. I’m definitely spending this at home time cleaning and clearing the place. Decluttering clears the mind right? 😛

What are you doing to keep yourself busy during this Lockdown?

Welcome to 2020…

It’s been a challenging start to a new year. It almost feels like hiking up a really tough mountain trail, expecting to be amazed and greeted by a spectacular view but, instead you’re greeted by an avalanche and you’re in fear while holding on to dear life as you see things crumble and being swept away or covered with mountains of snow not knowing how you’re going to survive this catastrophe. That being said, I still believe strongly that there’s always a way, a solution for things no matter how bleak they may seem. That’s my optimistic side peeking out and assuring myself and everyone who reads this that things will eventually be better. *MEGA HUGS from me to you.
