We are on day 48 of the ECQ (enhanced community quarantine).

A two-day “hard lockdown” is being imposed by Manila Mayor Isko Moreno on District 1 of Tondo and that is where Obet’s family live. I asked Nissa early this morning if they are prepared for it and she told  me they have enough supply so far. I am really wondering what “hard lockdown” means.  That means everyone could not go out of their homes for two straight days and by Wednesday they’re back on the enhanced community quarantine.

This situation either brings the best in us or the worse for that matter. There are still families who live now solely on donation and food packs given by generous individuals and their local governments.  I’d like to pay our electricity bills but since there are no meter readings and no bills for April and May, I could not do so. I also need to know the phone reference number so I could pay online but that is only included in their regular billing. Since I left the bank almost twenty years ago, I enrolled all our utilities online, so convenient and so easy.

Would you believe that for the past week, I’ve been reading Christmas stories? I am on my third  book actually. It is a nice change and  it is more inspiring reading books with happy endings and celebrating a lovely occasion than concentrating  on the  disturbing news about Covid-19. Learning to cope with the times, the “new normal” so to speak.

This morning, I let Josef trimmed my hair, about an inch at the back and on the sides too. Got no choice really. The weather is hot so long hair is not practical…haha 🙂

How are you all?
