Actually I have been like this since yesterday.
But I'm quite sure it's not Covid-19 because I don't feel like I'm going to die just yet.
Still, I'm not in the mood to write anything serious at the moment.
Tired of politics and feeling a bit suffocated by the Covid-19 restrictions.
I don't like wearing the mask because I have breathing difficulties....probably from the years of smoking.
I wish I can escape now to the East Coast and lepak by the seaside.
I miss sitting under a tree with a book at the beach.
Hopefully the MCO will be fully lifted soon.
Hopefully people will abide by the SOP so that we can further reduce the number of Covid-19 cases and make that happen soon.
By the way, I think the government should not let people gather in large number yet.
Someone forwarded the news about sembahyang Aidilfitri going to be allowed at the mosques, which in my opinion shouldn't be the case.
Such prayers are not even compulsory according to the religion.
That prayer could just be perform privately at home, which would lessen the risk of a major infection such as what happened at the Sri Petaling mosque gathering at the start of the pandemic in this country in February.
Religious gatherings or any type of gathering should only be allowed when there is an absolute guarantee that there would not be any risk of a renewed outbreak.
Of course the same should apply to gatherings of other religions.
We don't want another wave of infections like what were reported in South Korea and Wuhan, which was the Covid-19 epicenter.
I pray that the authorities would make the best decision on the matter.
As for the Raya celebrations, I think for once people should think about how to celebrate it privately.
They should spend it with only close family members and loved ones. Make it safe for everybody.
Actually, that's how I always celebrated Raya.
I don't really like the practice of going around from house to house and such on Raya day.
I don't even believe that's how they celebrated Raya during Prophet Mohamad's time.
It's too tiring, anyway.
Hopefully my fellow Muslims will understand that the less Raya they do this time, the less the risk of Covid-19 infections they pose.
For instance, if you insist on visiting your elderly relatives who are in their 70s or 80s on Raya day, you are actually increasing the risk of causing their death via Covid-19 infection.
Don't play the fool on this one, okay.
Don't let it happens to you.
Well, just don't do something which you may regret later.
Anyway, since I'm missing the beach at my usual haunt in the East Coast today, I'm putting this nice video of a Korean girl who spent time at a beach on a Ramadhan day,
