Covid-19 pandemic literally ruined everyone.
People are dying, businesses going bankrupt, people are given unpaid leaves till an unknown period or worse, terminated with immediate notice. And, school closures resulted in the disparity between students with access to the internet/computer and those without.
Quoting people on Twitter, 2020 is canceled.
However, amidst all the bad things that happen, there are silver linings during this lockdown that I’m so grateful for.
9 Silver Linings During Lockdown To Be Thankful For
I still have a job
I couldn’t stress how grateful I am to have a job. My company is an IT company, so our operation is not affected compared to the tourism and aviation industry so no one is losing a job yet.
Some of my friends did and it is sad how tough everyone is doing financially wise. Malaysia already has a problem with terribly low wages among fresh graduates so the majority probably won’t have enough savings to survive until they get a new job.

Working in the comfort of home
A great privilege that can be easily taken for granted.
I have a room where I can set up my work station. A stable internet connection. An annoying sister that surprise, surprise would bring me breakfast when I’m working.

Can work wearing comfortable clothes or just PJs and no one would bat an eye
Less money spent on eating outside
To waste it on online shopping and GrabFood/FoodPanda
I’ve bought so much stuff from Shopee/FoodPanda and my bank account is crying.
Can I stop?
Trying new recipe
My siblings and I have been trying new recipes during lockdown and one of the easiest recipe that we’ve tried making is Carbonara Spring Rolls. You only need 4 ingredients and this tasty spring roll is yours to eat!
Do noty let this poor photo quality cloud your judgment! It’s yummy!

I actually lose 3kgs after coming back to Malaysia.
That sounds impressive, right?

Losing weight is hard.
I hope that the Covid-19 pandemic would be over soon. Statistics wise, the Malaysian government has been handling the pandemic successfully. From 8,668 confirmed cases, 8,476 recovered which credit goes to our hardworking frontliners – the doctors, nurses, policemen, etc.
You guys are awesome!
