Living in the current Covid-19 pandemic, we have experienced quarantine. It is a norm now. In Malaysia, we have been living in a quarantine state for almost two years. Quarantines is very boring yet it has some good sides and bright sides to it. Quarantine sucks? Some people have different opinions. Here’s some of the stuff that made quarantine seemed and feel a bit better.
This coffee became famous during the first quarantine period. 18 March 2020 is the beginning of the Malaysian Movement Control Order as a response to the global pandemic of Covid-19. Through TikTok and Instagram, dalgona coffee became the talk of the internet. Dalgona comes from a Korean word. This coffee is also known as Greek coffee. To make this coffee, you will only need three ingredients, sugar, hot water and instant coffee.
Serve the dalgona mixture on some milk then your drink is ready.
Powfu- Death Bed (Coffee For Your Head)
This song is particularly popular. Usually, people would be posting their dalgona coffee alongside this Death Bed as their background music. To enjoy uninterrupted music streaming playback, Jom Apply unifi for faster internet. Save data right now.
Learning New Recipes
Next, food. Yes I like food. I think most of you guys do too. Through TikTok, a large video application platform, people have been sharing their favorite recipes. I learned about the Gigi Hadid pasta and let me tell you, it was so good. It is creamy with a tangy sensation, add little chili flakes for some spicy umph delicious!
Quality Time Together
Then, in quarantine there is no school, work from home ‘kinda’ vibes. You spend time with your family, staying at home and spending more time than ever. Due to the fact that we can’t meet our friends, social media platforms are the medium to connect everyone. Some people will stay up late hanging out in the Discord app while streaming their favorite movie while some friend groups are playing games till the morning. Anyways, it is a good time.
This is the time for binge-watching. Quarantine may be boring but at least I can finish an original Netflix series in a day.
Here are some of the TV series and film recommendations:
- Money Heist
- Ginny and Georgia
- Stranger Things
- To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before
Explore New Things
All these free times make us have an option to explore new things. Trying new hobbies, venture into small business, trying to cook and making plans to travel for the future.
Decorate Your Room
Last but not least, we spent most of the time in our house and room. Some of the hot and uprising room themes among teenagers are Danish Pastel and Grunge. After that, led lights are one of the best selling items for a teenagers and adolescent room. Tape it into the wall and turn on the remote, and you get such beautiful colored-light. Then, the cloud mirror was also one of the crazes among the décor enthusiasts.
In a nutshell, these are some of the things that I indulge and enjoy doing during pandemic. I’m sure most of the Malaysia are doing the same. I miss social gatherings and going to places with no mask. Let’s pray and hope that this pandemic will end soon. Practice social distancing and wear your mask while visiting local places. Stay safe!
