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

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

- 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. You had to always take a precaution.

- 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. After 8 weeks of a movement control order, the government agreed to allow two people to buy groceries.

- 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. It's better for us to 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!
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.
