Another lockdown. MCO 2.0.
A week into Malaysian MCO 2.0 (started 13 Jan) and seeing C19 cases in Selangor at its record high, close to 1,500 cases per day while total C19 cases for the whole country had reached its highest so far at 4,029 cases per day (today is at 3,631 cases). I am not sure how would our battle against this pandemic ended, will we win or will most of us succumbed to it.
I lost one of my travel friend mid last month.
She had a brain tumour. It was sudden. The last time I met her was in March last year when we were at Mulu, Sarawak. We tried to climb the rigorous Mulu Pinnacles together. She looked and sounded healthy to me at that time. We even planned to climb Mt. Kinabalu in October but we cancelled the plan due to the pandemic. I saw the sad news on her Facebook timeline. I heard that she was hospitalised in late October but she was super quiet about it. No one in my circle seemed to know anything about her condition until we heard about the bad news. Maybe she didn’t expect that the tumour would be that bad.
A good friend of mine had a major heart attack this week.
He was with another group of friend at the time when he was struck. Lucky enough one of them performed CPR on him until the help came. He is a fighter and I pray for his recovery, Allah will ease his recovery. We are not only battling the virus but also the mental madness that came along with it.
The mental stress. The paranoia. The call from the bank. The shrinking saving account. The fear. It is all real! What can we learn?
- Bad things happen
- How you respond to them
- Be prepared for anything
- Routine is helpful
A constant reminder of how short life is. When your time come, you can’t delay it even for a second. Will I be ready to let go of my last breath in peace?
The more reason that I want to experience ‘life’ to its fullest.
Stay safe y’all.
