Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 7 – Finally Leaving Claustrophobic Quarantine

When one is undergoing 14 days of mandatory quarantine in a small confined hotel room, trust me, the days will pass by very slowly. Even the hours seem to be taking its own “sweet time” to move. Whilst one may get excited on the first few days of being quarantined in a luxurious hotel room, one will soon get bored with the routine and yes, with the food which more or less from the same list of menu.… [Click to read the rest] “Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 7 – Finally Leaving Claustrophobic Quarantine”

Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 6 – Glorious Malaysian Quarantine Meals (3)

Food Quarantine

This will probably be the last post on quarantine food for the obvious reason – the rest of the menu was more or so a mix of the previous meals. I guess this is due to the control of the meal by the Ministry of Health and not left to the creativity of the hotel chefs (but then again it could be worse).… [Click to read the rest] “Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 6 – Glorious Malaysian Quarantine Meals (3)”

Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 5 – Glorious Malaysian Quarantine Meals (2)

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.… [Click to read the rest] “Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 5 – Glorious Malaysian Quarantine Meals (2)”

Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 4 – Glorious Malaysian Quarantine Meals (1)

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.… [Click to read the rest] “Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 4 – Glorious Malaysian Quarantine Meals (1)”

Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 3 – Arriving At Home Away From Home

(The view from my quarantine room which unfortunately was nothing to shout about but at least I could get some sunlight into the room. When I am bored, I will look over when the office workers are leaving the parking lot in the next building for a change of sight)

This will be the second time that we will be undergoing 2 weeks of COVID19 quarantine but compared to the first time quarantine in Cambodia, the quarantine in Malaysia with Malaysian food and Malaysian hospitality is always welcomed.… [Click to read the rest] “Mandatory Quarantine 2020: Part 3 – Arriving At Home Away From Home”

Malaysia 101: When Stupidity, Stubbornness and Double Standards Mixed

COVID19 Malaysia

What really went wrong in Malaysia’s fight against COVID19?

Just when Malaysia almost able to bend the curve, it suddenly spiked up again and it is running loose now. Have we gotten lax in enforcement and maintaining our precautions? It is the same case with water disruptions in the state of Selangor – it is happening way too frequently these days.… [Click to read the rest] “Malaysia 101: When Stupidity, Stubbornness and Double Standards Mixed”

Kingdom of Cambodia 2020: Part 12 – The Tedious, Much Awaited Journey Back Home

Cambodia Airport COVID19

(The rather empty departure terminal at Phnom Penh airport in Cambodia and it is the same case, most airports around the world. Most of the duty-free shops were opened but sadly there were no customers. The lone guy at Starbucks was practically begging passengers to come in to have coffee) 

This will be the last part in this Cambodian trip series – we have completed our assignment in Phnom Penh and it was time to make the journey back home and start the next phase of the project.… [Click to read the rest] “Kingdom of Cambodia 2020: Part 12 – The Tedious, Much Awaited Journey Back Home”
