Sunday, July 25, 2021


It's a very chilled Sunday. We're all in our rooms, either lying down or watching something on Netflix. Iman is actually sitting for her finals now and I've always found it bit odd that UiTM has exams/classes on Sundays! Surely that can't be right.

I'm watching the Artistic Gymnastics qualifications on Sooka now. I love watching this sport, it's so fantastic how the body can bend and balance hahaha am trying to watch Farah Ann but cameras haven't shown her yet! I'm watching on the Sooka app and I've been keeping track of events via the Olympics app. I also really love that TikTok has been so pivotal for updates because we have athletes who show the Olympic Village there too. It's soooo cooooooooool ugh there's just something about the really really talented and the really really skilled coming together for an event to represent their country. Like I just think you cannot get any cooler than that. That's why I love the World Cup so much. A team sport and even if you're an individual competing like many of our Malaysians there, they have the whole country behind them! I'm telling ya, nothing unites a country more than defending the local delicacies and for supporting a sportsperson. 

In Covid news, we are at 17k cases today...... even when a majority of the country is on lockdown for more than a month now. Sigh. The only thing keeping me going is to see the vaccination rates going strong in recent days. We did 500k a day on Wednesday I think and that's commendable, I have to say. In the family, all of us have been vaxxed once and 5/7 are fully vaccinated alhamdulillah. Iman just did hers yesterday and so it's just my dad and her that's left with a second dose appointment soon insyaAllah. I'm also very happy to know that all my friends are all at least half vaxxed. Like I said, am not friends with anti vaxxers haha.

Really just so excited and almost nervous (??) to go out again and meet friends and have outside food that isn't in a takeaway package. Y'know, just simple things! I miss the office and my colleagues! And our 5pm McD teatime. Such a different feeling compared to the last lockdown... at the time I was very much comfortable working from home and even resisted going back to office because I thought it was too soon. Now I'm just counting the days for us to go back working in a NATURAL ENVIRONMENT. Hate that home has become work. The government's about to announce some special privileges (if you can even call it that) to those who are fully vaccinated so I'm hoping that's soon enough and I'm also hoping people don't abuse it and cause another spike in cases. I just miss being around other people!! Texts and video calls won't cut it anymore, not natural for us to be connected virtually. I need them hugs!!!!!

We spent out THIRD raya (both Aidilfitri and Aidiladha) at home. We got to spend Raya Haji in Penang last year but unfortunately we can't spend it with them yet this year. Both my grandparents are vaxxed alhamdulillah and I miss them loads. First place we're going is to visit them and give them big hugs and kisses. Our Raya Haji was simple, Mama cooked some food that lasted us two days for all meals haha and we just took some photos outside. Zaim and Hanis didn't join us and it was for the best - we'd all prefer if everyone's double vaxxed before they can come over again. You just never know with this new variant. 

It's almost 10pm now (I started writing this a little after lunch!) and I'm going to continue watching One Tree Hill. Naomi Osaka's playing tomorrow at 10:00am so I'll sneak that in while working. Best part about WFH is that I get to just go downstairs to do work in my PJ's. Though I do miss getting ready and putting on proper pants. 

Take care, everybody! Talk soon.
