Covid 19 changed the world quite a bit. No idea what’s gonna happen from here since we are still right in the smack of it now.
I want to capture a list of (sometimes small) changes in my life, just so that we may have something nostalgic to look (laugh) at 10 years from now.
Working from home is now the norm. I started sometime just after the Lunar New Year, today is the 19th of April, that means I have been doing this almost 2 months now. It’s hard to be motivated, it’s hard to do conversations, it’s hard to get things done, and I’m about to go crazy.
Rearranged my work desk. Gotten a new portable display for the work Surface Pro
When I am on a conference call, a Google routinely turns the light strip in the living room red when I say “Activate Battle Station”
Hoarders, Singapore Edition
It’s now embarrassingly fashionable to hoard. Lines formed up at the supermarkets quickly whenever any rumours of supply cut or movement controls.
Railway mall 1.30am
Me rushing to buy organic vegetables for the kids just before Malaysia closes its borders.
Phyllis did quite a good job stocking up at home and I did an even better job creating an inventory system using airtable, complete with barcoding and expiry date tracking. 🙂
Socialising distancing is the new in-thing … and oh yes, and then there is “Circuit Breaker”.
Everyone is going outdoors to stay healthy suddenly.
5km Henderson Waves
Sembawang Hot Spring
The tiring 7km Treetop Walk
We bought our first game console after … 13 years?
It’s getting too unbearable to stay at home without much to do other than work, eat, sleep, online shopping, TV.
Switch and my games ..
Consumer no more. Yes, salesman
At work, consumer business got scaled back with the new incoming GCEO. Not happy, but not unexpected.
And, strangely enough, I have now taken over the sales & marketing team, and that’s on top of my product portfolio. And, did I say I’m not a salesperson?
The new norm … conference calls day in and day out
