Quick update

Friday, July 3, 2020




Hey guys! How have you been? It's been a while! *blows dust off this blog*


I have been surprisingly busy the past few days especially with work. The economy is slowly getting back on its feet in this side of the world. In response to COVID-19 crisis, the Cayman Islands government has allowed residents, regardless of age, to withdraw at least 25% of their pensions. Guess what happened? Locals are shopping now more than ever and spending tons of their money on new stuff such as home renovations, appliances, air conditioning, and what not.


As you may all know, I work at an air conditioning and appliance business so sales has been crazy like it's the holiday season. Can you imagine, in some parts of the world, people are starving and stressing on how to handle the pandemic, and here almost everyone got a huge payout.


We've been selling appliances like hot cakes. Most of our clients replace all their kitchenware in one go. It still amazes me how the first thing locals do is spend spend spend instead of saving their pension for a far better investment such as real estate (or whatever, just my two cents).


Also, all lockdown restrictions have been lifted since the third week of June so everyone can go anywhere as long as they practice the common courtesy of social distancing. Night clubs, bars, even restaurants are also allowed to welcome customers as long as the lounge is outdoors with minimum six people in one table.


Who would have thought that wearing as mask in this generation is considered a show of respect?


Also got my COVID test done via drive thru (thus photo above), got the results the same day, and thank God, negative!


Anyway, I barely get the time to open my laptop ever, let alone come up with blog topic ideas (by the way I have a couple listed down so I'm looking forward to write about them next week!). I am so busy with life apart from work, which I am very excited to share with you as soon as it materialises. I am also still learning how to drive, and will hopefully get a license and a car before the year ends!


Well that's it for me, if you still know who I am! lol.


Thanks for sticking around!

  1. I totally still know who you are :)) haha! So nice to hear from you again, Ann! It's great to know you're safe and doing well. Thank God indeed your test came out negative. Thanks for giving us an insight on how people are dealing with the pandemic over at your side of the earth. Perhaps people have been itching to purchase new things since we've all be holed up in our homes, so they went on a purchasing spree..

    They've eased the restrictions here as well in Manila, however I'm not so keen on stepping outside just yet. Staying safe remains to be top priority for me, even if I do feel the itch to go outside! For now it's within my garden walls, and the occasional car rides for small errands.

    Have a lovely weekend :") thanks for sharing with us.
