Movement Control Order In Malaysia

Today is Day 7 of the Movement Control Order in Malaysia.  It started on the 18th March 2020, for 2 weeks, to contain the Coronavirus Covid 19.   This is like a partial lockdown and people can only go out to buy essentials.  All schools and offices are shut down and only those involved in essential business can stay open like grocery stores, clinics, businesses related to food like kopitiam and restaurants.  However customers can only takeaway and there is no dining in. This strict implementation is done to flatten the epidemic curve.

So what have we been doing so far?  Missy had school last week as her school holiday only begins this week.  So from Day 1 to Day 3 of the MCO, she had online classes.  That kept her busy for awhile.

On Day 4, missy was bored and wanted to order McDonalds online as she has yet to try the Blueberry Pie.  Alas, it was not available so she opt for her favourite Meatball Sub from Subway.

My buddies and I video-call each other to keep each other sane.  My sisters and I also did video-call to chat for a while

On Day 7, I woke up at 5.30am to go to the market nearby to stock up on some vegetables.  Unfortunately, the vegetable stalls were closed as it was a Monday. So I asked hubs to drive to Jusco supermarket in Mid Valley to get some veges.  Luckily he managed to buy some.  There was no crowd and parking is free.  Everyone will have their temperature checked before going in and sanitizers are available everywhere.  I think I will make another trip to the market this Friday (Day 11) to see if I can buy some mushrooms and old cucumber.

So how have you been doing?  Remember to stay home if you can and keep well.
