We all cope with the ongoing trauma and quarantine in different ways. 2020 is not a waste of time, it has been a time that we all be more active, creative and productive. Taking course, learning something new and keeping yourself fit. Learn about yourself and learn to love yourself. One of my resolution of 2020 is to spend more time with my parents back in my hometown which is hard for me due to the distance and local government rules. I decided to use other different ways to keep in touch with my parents, my friends also my love ones. You can do the same as well, checking on your friends from time to time. You got nothing to lose by sending a message, writing them a handwritten card or call just to say HI. Enough people dying in the year of 2020, let’s do a small favor for someone today.
While keeping social distance, wearing masks and washing our hands frequently. Remember to show some support to the local small/medium business. It’s sad to see some of my favorite shops that grew up with me had force to close down due to COVID-19.

This COVID-19 is going to last for a while, also this is not the end of the world. This is the best time to evaluate yourself, reconnect with your family and begin the journey of becoming a better person.

Helping one person might not change the whole world, but it could change the world of one person. And you could be the HERO for someone else. If you can’t contribute in term of financial then be there to help and support. If you can’t be there to show your presence, you can help to share the awareness. My birthday is around the corner and I realize that Facebook had this birthday fundraiser for a charitable cause or NGOs. Well, I can’t seem to find any Malaysia local movement.
Here’s a small shout-out to a friend of mine who stays in Kota Kinabalu, Jane Ho for keeping strays off the streets. Hats off for her, despite of her full-time job, she put off a lot of effort and time doing rescue and feeding stray dogs and cats. Not to say, she did pull out of her own pocket to do all these. She aimed to hit Zero Strays in near future.
COVID-19 hits the strays hard. I am proud to have such a big-hearted friend, same age as me, doing things that is out of her comfort zone. Instead of spending money, time and effort gossiping or complaining about our work in café or all eyes glue on social media all times. She is saving more than a dozen strays per day.
