The 14 day quarantine after arriving KLIA

Upon my arrival to KLIA from Singapore, I was directed to different stations, starting off with the covid-19 swab test. It really wasn't a pleasant feeling having something that long up your nostril. I gagged and started coughing involuntarily. After watching so many videos, I was expecting them to collect the samples from both my nostrils. But it was one mouth swab and only one nostril swab. Both were equally horrible.
The authorities did the headcount and after all the formalities, we were brought up the bus to then be transported to a designated quarantine center. We were not informed before hand on where the bus was going. It felt like I was being kidnapped by the government hahaha.
It was a real crazy experience. Throughout the entire journey, all I could think of was 'the chances of me getting the virus here is very high' hahaha. I may come back covid free but who knows where everyone else in this quarantine red zone is from.

I had to pay RM140 per day for 14 days for t…

Pasar Malam After COVID-19

With the pandemic going on, the memory of what once used to be normal to us, can be chucked deep within your store room together with all your other junk. Because with covid-19 still out and about, this is the new normal we gotta live with.

We were on our way out to dinner one day and my brother suggested that since I'm home, we should go to pasar malam nearby. I haven't been home in 7 months, I miss everything about home, I miss everything about KL.
If you didn't know, the idea of a 'pasar malam' in Singapore is quite different when you're used to the pasar malam here. Most (if not all) pasar malam in Singapore are shaded under big tents with carpeted floor, stand fans everywhere and also wooden benches with tables for you to dine at. And they do not happen on a weekly basis like in KL, they are usually scheduled for short periods and then it will be gone before you know it. Its basically like Artbox in KL, or like an event space.
The pasar malam I know and love …

We tried Hoya Korean BBQ

Here's me trying to salvage whatever photos I can from my IG stories. I didn't take any photos, so here are some that I managed to screenshot out of our videos, haha.

I went to Hoya Korean BBQ with only the thought of 'having dinner' in mind. When I got home, I thought that I could share about this place. Also, to kick start my habit of writing here again. Yeah, so my sister has been raving about this place to me. Mainly because she was just so happy that there's a korean BBQ restaurant in Equine Park, nearby our house. And she's afraid that if she doesn't support them and especially during this pandemic, they may have to close down.
That's not exactly something Euwern can stand for. So, she made it a thing to support them once every month. Haha, when I came home, naturally we cleared out an evening to have dinner there. It was us 5 girls, my two sisters and my two best friends.
The first thing I saw when I got in was this very nice Soju bottle christmas tr…

What Feels?

Sometimes, I sit down and wonder if I'm at the stage of my life where I expected to be years ago. To say the least, I am no where close to where I expected to be 10 years ago. Then again, I was 16 and the only relevant portrayal of a future is based on my mom's experience. She got married at 26 and had all of us & a wonderful life began. 
Which brought me to always imagining myself with a loving husband, an amazing career, a house, some high returning investments and two kids while pregnant with the third at the age I'm at right now.
But of course, we grow, we change and we all tend to skew our goals and initiatives over the years. So again, am I satisfied with where I'm at, just by looking from two years back?
I guess I could do better. I feel like I'm still not on the verge of 'giving it my all' to be where I'm at right now. But not to undermine my own hardwork, I do feel that I have achieved a significant amount of recognition and success at this st…
