Actually, it’s not all gloomy for this MCO extension. The opening hours of eateries are now extended till 10pm from 8pm previously. Guys, PLEASE, stay home as much as possible. Ordering food for the next 2 weeks will not ‘kill’ us okay. We need to be united in this war against COVID-19.Beyond that, perhaps this is also a very good statement and hopefully we start to see a dropping number from tomorrow onwards?

it’s 21st January today. 4th February is 14 days away. Not that tough, really especially since we have been trained well for the last 10 months or so. In fact eating a different kind of food everyday is possible too. Let me start the food list for the next 14 days. The list can go on forever yeah. This is Malaysia…
I just finished dinner and I am still hungry as I type these. Haha. Happy eating and staying at home.
