TRAVELING MADE EASY.... is happening now in Malaysia, no need to apply for police permit or getting My Travel Pass approval.  Good or not good?  As for me, at the endof the day, we, the people have to take our own precaution, we have to face risks if we want to go out freely and at the same time, life just have to go on.  The virus is definitely now here to stay...  Over here, I also try not to go out unnecessarily, the numbers here are low, just a few hundreds but we do not actually know the real figures, right?  So it is like in Malaysia, "sendiri jaga diri".....  So most days I prepare my own breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Breakfast as usual is very simple, followed by lunch, mostly noodles or leftover food from previous day and dinner, I try to have one or two dishes done by then.  Juggling an active baby who sleeps one hour nap in between, there is not much time to do what I want to do.  LOL... With this routine, my blog is often left neglected and for my readers, please

That was what I told my son, with the never ending Covid virus, we did not know when we would be allowed to travel.   Now I am really here, it has been more than a month now and I am more or less settled down, being a grandmother and nanny, two in one.  LOL...
