thursday. it is very sunny again. 1°C. so cold.

i went out to get disinfectants and groceries. at 7.55am. lolololol. the city looks dead and there were notices on almost every shops/restaurants that they’re closing because of the virus outbreak, but some restaurants do takeouts. can’t wait for my döner fix on Saturday! i was with a friend and then a police car appeared behind us and we quickly distanced ourself cos we’re supposed to be at least 1.5m apart. hahahhaahahhaa. that was funny.

well, it’s not just the health and social issue, since stock markets crashed too. and of course it could affect politics. behold the coronavirus. i want to grow up to be like it too.

this is. a masterpiece. weird and engaging enough to keep people reading, and somehow it manages to pack some wisdom in it. i don’t really know how to describe this piece but maybe this: another way to think about the SARS-CoV-2 outbreak
