The Circuit Breaker is finally ending officially.
We are moving on to Phase One of three phases of gradual reopening.
There are some nice memories for me to take away, having been cooped up at home for so long. And today, it was a beautiful moment when we were having desserts as a family, we shared our key takeaways of what CB meant to each of us.
Some key highlights of what we liked the most about CB:
Playing mobile games
Waking up late
Spending so much time together
Spending time with the kids
Papa washing the dishes
Playing board games
Having such a big house with ample space
Being able to WFH
Some key downsides of what we disliked most about CB:
Not being able to go out
Having to wear masks when we went out
As you can see, there were a lot more pros than cons.
I do feel like CB has taken a toll on all Singaporeans and each of us will derive some permanent memories of our time spent, be they good or bad.
We will look back and wonder how we passed the time at home at the while.
As my wife did mention the other day, CB feels weird because in the future when we look back and we tried to recall anything significant that we did, we probably won't be able to remember any. What we'd remember more is the routines that we had day in and day out, so much so that we did these things so systematically that we'd forget what day of the week it was.
It truly is an amazing time to be alive and live through this.
I'm sure it has changed people for better or for worse.
Tomorrow we begin Phase One.
