Ever since I got hold of a fitness tracker, it has been easier to keep track of the number of steps that I clocked on daily basis and with the workout feature, it is easy to track the number of calories burned for each type of workout. However, losing weight significantly has been a tough effort despite the hours of exercise that I put in on daily basis. Photo by Ketut Subiyanto from Pexels
Probably taking a leaf from our own Putrajaya, Napyitaw or Naypyidaw is Myanmar’s administration city which is located about 370 kilometres from Yangon. It has the very famous, 20 lane roads in Myanmar which do not make sense considering there are hardly any vehicles in the city. Based on the estimates in the Google Map, driving from Yangon to Naypyidaw, Myanmar using the expressway will take a gruelling 4 hours and 40 minutes. Image source: South China Morning Post
It was the last day of the Deepavali week and at the very last minute, we decided to take a break away from home and go for a short drive out of the town to Sekinchan. Before that, we were considering several options for a quick, one day drive which included Sepang Gold Coast but Sekinchan which is famous for the lush green paddy field, fisherman village and great seafood restaurants seems to be a better place to go.
One of the key things that caught my eyes when it comes to daily meals during the 14 days quarantine is this – the label on top of the meal box. It explains 2 main things namely the date & timing when the meal needs to be finished and the fact that the Ministry of Health vetted through the daily meal to ensure a balanced meal.
A big part of the “fun” of being quarantined down in a small room for the next 14 days without anything much to do is to watch for the 3 meals of the day that will be hand-delivered to the small table just outside our quarantine room. Of course, one also needs to be prepared with standby food of their own – in my case, 3 in 1 cereal, biscuits and packet drinks.
