CMCO Day 130 ~ Saturday, 17 Oct 2020

With the shitty pandemic not getting any better, wearing of face masks is set to become compulsory for at least another half a year. Even if it’s no longer mandatory by law to wear face mask in public, I will still be wearing one.  Our girls and hubby too. Would you dare to take chances of baring your nose and mouth? Just put on a face mask for peace of mind. And since face masks have taken over my blusher and lipstick, I might as well wear one in my favorite color to decorate my face 😷 .  Bright pretty colors often put me in a good mood.  I really need something to brighten up my life in depressing times like now.

The Covid situation in our country is getting worse by the day. Everyday we read of new positive cases detected in a new shopping mall or office building.  Today our country reported over 800 new positive cases.  More businesses are now affected by this unexpected black swan event.  Last week when the government announced that another CMCO would be imposed followed by cancellation of hubby’s catering events, my heart felt so heavy. I feel like our lives have been dealt with another big blow after we’ve just picked up the pieces and thinking that our lives are slowly returning to the norm.

“You’re not the only ones affected. The whole world is affected. Every business is affected” – this is what people always say to console us but the pain and frustration are overwhelming and it sucks, especially on the financial impact it has on us.

Besides reusable fabric masks, I’m also buying colorful disposable face masks to add to my collection.  Apart from Medicos, I discovered two other made in Malaysia brands,  namely Durio and Simply K and have bought these brands to add to my collection. I love them bright pretty colors!

My parcel of joy received today – face masks in bright purple ☺️

Sending Flowers To Your Loved Ones During The Pandemic

Science has proven what many already believed, that flowers are good for your soul and mental well-being!   Flowers are pretty, colorful, smell great and within their delightfully-delicate petals, our blooming buddies hold the secrets to make us feel happy.  Flowers have the magical ability to lift our mood, reduce stress and depression and generate a more optimistic outlook in life.

With the recent global Covid-19 pandemic, there is a significant impact on every aspect of life, including how people live in the new normal. With many people impacted negatively by the pandemic, there are more reasons why we need flowers in our lives.  Home quarantine and isolation can be a lonely and depressing experience; it can lower our mood and the vulnerable in society could have serious implications on their mental wellbeing.

If you are currently separated from your wife, daughter, mother, girlfriend, friends or loved ones because of border restrictions and social distancing, you can reach out to them from afar by sending them flowers via online flowers delivery services such as those from PlantShed NYC flowers, the best New York florist that’s around!

Fire Island Flowers

If you’re having many missed moments with your loved ones that you would have spent together if not for this pandemic, a beautiful bouquet or pot of flowers sent to them from a New York florist will make them feel loved though you’re miles apart from them.

Flowers are one of the best ways to spark some joy to the days of your loved ones during this drat pandemic.  Sending flowers to your loved ones is a great way to connect and communicate and truly make an impact on your  loved one’s mood in a way that’s otherwise not accessible due to social distancing and restrictions on traveling.

Sending flowers may be a simple gesture, but it is truly more than that.  Flowers are an absolute delight to have.  Stay safe folks!
