    The Oak Garden Building | Short Story 2021

    As I gaze out my window at the sky while watching my children sleep,  the brisk winds remind me of a building that I once lived in,  wherein I saw, sensed, and were horrified,  an encounter with which I'm not comfortable speaking.  Fortunately, everything turned up okay. My name is Herman, but my friends called me Er, and the following is a story of what occurred to me 23 years ago. I have had a passion for writing since a kid. Now my guardian thinks I can go even farther. Consequently, they help me submit an authorship application and enrol in further linguistic, writing, and journalistic courses. Little did I realise that I'd be given a job to help me improve my abilities while simultaneously taking part-time writing courses to support my income. I was a young twenty-year-old at the time. Too young, yet inquisitive and willing to try new things. As a young author, the chance pushed me to go outside my comfort zone and acquire essential experience.  Pay attention to the sound

    My Quarantine Life - Day 61, some restriction order (Malaysian Movement control order)

    See, Write, and Post-it. Our eyes see and record every memory that goes on in life.

    I miss that moment of meeting your friend although we had to meet for only one hour or less than that. This pandemic had taught me to be more grateful at every moment of my life. 

    Enjoy the moment while you still can with the friends surround you, the people you met, include strangers. So whenever you are right now, I wish you a Happy Sunday; I hope you had good health and stay safe with your family.

    Before pandemic VS after the pandemic.

    Before the Malaysian government announced for Movement Control Order on 16 March 2020, I was in the city for short courses. Luckily, a week before the lockdown, the head school allowed us to go back home. Then, I drove back to my hometown, which took me one hour. So, does everyone. Some were miles away; some were just around there. 

    Nonetheless, living in my hometown is so much fun, even it was a lockdown. You can explore more things, learn, and the things that you haven't had a chance before such as, helping your parents in the field, cleaning the house, and doing your hobby. However, because this is a movement control order, not everything I usually do before a pandemic can be done as I please. The rule is a rule, it's either you obey or disobedient. 

    Here are some of the new routine since the MCO:

    1. Social Distancing.
      There are no exceptions to the world. It applied all around the world. The COVID-19 had utterly changed the way we live. So, no, shake hands and keep your social distancing.

    2. Maintaining Hygiene.
      Always wash your hands, take a bath, and always maintain your hygiene. Even the kids can understand it. Bring your sanitiser along with you whenever you go. It's essential and will be used every time you touch other things.

    3. Wear a mask and take a bath.
      Every time you go out, buy some groceries or take an order from someone who delivered it to you, you have to wear a mask and then clean yourself. So you had to always take a precaution.

    4. Only the head family had to go to buy groceries.
      Sad, but it's true, at first, only the head family had to buy essential supplies at the supermarket. Then, after 8 weeks of a movement control order, the government agreed to allow two people to buy groceries.

    5. No gathering, no seeing your friend, stay at home!
      All the birthday parties, planning on going on holiday and go outing was cancelled. The religious event was also held as this is a pandemic. But, a virtual online can be used. So, we should stay at home for a moment.

    This is part of the MCO regulation; I am sure that the whole world has the same regulation. There's more regulation, such as; school are closed, all the workers were asked to work from home, some of the company was closed, but the restaurant will still be open (for taking away order only). 

    I hope this will end soon.

    Stay safe and stay at home. Hold on for a while.

    Here a song for you, Happy Sunday!

    Translations:

    Tiada Laut yang terlalu dalam - There's no deep sea
    Tiada Gunung yang teramat tinggi - There's no high mountain
    Saat Engkau Bapa menggandeng tanganku - When You, Father holds my hand
    Lewati laut gunung kehidupan - Go through this mountain of life

    Takkan dapat aku bayangkan - I can't imagine
    Arungi hidup tanpaMu Tuhan - Live life without you God
    Hatiku rindu bersamaMu - My heart miss with You
    Lebih dan lebih lama lagi, Tuhan - Over and over, Dear God

    After the COVID-19 had struck the world, there's a lot we learn through it, but still, right now, there are people who fight for their lives, and economic crisis, a person losing a job, and much more burden that we might not know. 

    We can't blame anyone; it is what it is; it's hard to say "everything will be fine" because the reality is, it took so much strength and emotions to fight this situation. 

    No matter how hard our life right now, keep believing that, at some point, this all will end.

    How the conversation started 12 years ago | seewriteandpost.com

    There's a quote says by a famous person, "If you find someone you love in your life, then hang on to that love." - Princess Diana. Twelve years ago, I had a crush on one person. He played the guitar at the church. He was a best friend to my other friend, so I'm not really close to him. He was funny and sometimes quiet too. I was interested in his character. I was 16, and he was 18 years old at that time.  Well, you know what people say, love is blind for a kid, and I realise that I was still underage at that time. Having a relationship is not my kind of thing when I was still 16 years old. But still, having a crush is not a crime. So, I kept that feeling until I was at college. At the age of 18, I got an offer to school away from my hometown.  Because I kept my feeling for so long, sometimes when I return to my hometown for a semester break, I will give him a present. Looking back on that memories, it was funny, though. He was 20 at that time. Sure did, I tried to
