What working from home looks like

Well… sometimes, lol. Working from home is kind of difficult for me to stay focus. Once in a while kena work from home bila we need to run errands or settle something nearby our home tu still OK lah. But bila kena do everyday.. merana jugak lah sikit, haha.

But good thing about my line of industry, as a software engineer is that – working from home ni is something normal and we are already used to it. Kalau ada problem for our company pun, just the load yang they need to handle for remote connections. And about a week before the CMO, our company already had a ‘global work from home’ day, to test the load and find difficulties bila everyone is working remotely.

p/s: Menyampah betol lah my neighbors ni. Bising. Tak habis2 lah menarik kerusi tu kuat2. Tau kan kat bawah ada neighbor, be thoughtful lah sikit!!

How I can safely receive deliveries in time of Covid-19

I’ve been panicking each time I receive a parcel. Tried many custom personal “SOP” but none ever works. I always get more panic and ended up thinking – “Shit, idk.. I think there’s a chance I might already got infected, I’m doomed. Oh God. But… Let’s wait for 14 days, I still hope I’m ok..”

So just now, I found this step. Pretty basic. But I’m still nervous though. Only people with anxiety disorder would understand.. sobs..

  • Ask for contact-free deliveries to minimise the risk of transmission from delivery drivers
  • Dispose of packaging immediately
  • Follow hand washing advice and thoroughly clean your hands after handling parcels
  • Regularly clean surfaces with anti-bacterial spray

Update as of 25th March 2020:

I had to pick up a package that was being placed inside PosLaju’s EzyBox (cause apparently they don’t want to do home delivery if they don’t feel like it urgh). Here’s what I did;

  • I bring 2 bags
    • 1 paper bag to store the parcel
      I place this bag inside my car, to leave it for few days. If there’s any virus there, it should die without a host.
    • 1 reusable bag to put my belongings
      So I can place all items I brought out – keys, handphone, sanitizers, small wallet. And have them cleaned when I reached home.
  • As soon as I reached home;
    • Wash my hand.
    • Close front door.
    • Open door to laundry place.
    • Wash clothes I wore to go out.
    • Wash my hand.
    • Shower.
    • Clean/disinfect the items from the reusable bag.
    • Was the reusable bag.
    • Wash my hand.

At least when I did those, I panic less. Since I don’t place things all over the place, it took me less time to clean/disinfect the things. Yay me!!

Place to rant during CMO

OK, these few days, my panic attacked more often. One of reason is – too many bad, sad, annoying news regarding the virus and new government. Then there’s also my paranoias towards any foreign item I have to bring inside the house – parcel, letters, groceries.

So.. this will be my avenue to let go all of those frustrations, anger, worries… or anything that’s bothering my mind.
