RMCO Day 125 ~ Monday, 12 October 2020

Today marks another dramatic day in our lives.  The Government announced that besides Sabah, KL, Selangor and Putrajaya will be placed under a Conditional MCO again, effective Wednesday, 14 October for 2 weeks.  The 2 weeks here means that the situation will be reviewed and if daily new cases are still high, the CMCO will be extended, just like how it was in the past. We all know the drill after being in it for the most part of 2020.

Today’s announcement comes as a big blow to the hubby’s business.  His income has been roiled during the initial few months of the first MCO and now comes the next CMCO.  After the news was announced today, all his confirmed events and functions were postponed and cancelled.  He was to go to Fraser’s Hill to provide catering event this Saturday and this too will be cancelled.   We thought that the worst is over but it’s starting again and we’re back to square one. Back to ground zero again. It feels like we have been struggling to stay afloat in the deep ocean and just when we have finally reached the shore and can finally breathe with ease, we are now swept back into the rough choppy sea, struggling to stay afloat and gasping for air 😭

The days of MCO from March to May will be a repeat again. Maria our part-time maid will not be able to get into our condo once again. Our girls will be stuck at home and online classes will resume again.  I shudder to think of cooking 2-3 meals a day 7 days a week and cleaning up the grease and mess after each cooking session. My right hand has just healed completely and here we go again!

I think I’m going to go homecooked just thrice a week and for the rest of the days, I’m going to order takeout.  What the heck!

I am speechless and can only hope for the best. I know that God hears my prayers and if one door is closed, another door will be open. We’re going to get through this shitty MCO and pandemic.

As I had to bring Sherilyn to the dentist for her second tooth extraction for braces in the evening, I popped into the nearby supermarket to stock up on some groceries. When I was there, the crowd had just started and by the time we left, there was a long queue with panicked shoppers doing eleventh hour lockdown groceries shopping. Here we go again with long queues at supermarkets and hoarding of toilet papers, canned food and shelves sweeping 😱

My first virtual church wedding via Zoom on Saturday, to witness my cousin’s wedding.
