I AM BACK


Thank you Dorothy and Spring for worrying about my wellbeing. The two dear ladies emailed me to find out how I was,  Fear not I am back.  

I had a very eventful 2019.  I immersed myself in charity work and community service.  So much so that I neglected my blog.  A tragedy happened in my family.  My youngest sister had an accident and was in a coma for sometime.  She passed away on October 20th 2019.  My family and I were in mourning for a few months and I was too distraught to blog,

At the beginning of the year I had to get ready for my retirement in April.  I had to train my successor and also try to finish projects that I started.  Unfortunately, I could not finish what I set out to do.  On 18th March, my country Malaysia went into partial Lockdown.  Here we term is as Movement Control Order (MCO).  We wee not allowed out from our houses unless we needed to go buy food, buy medicine or seek treatment form the hospital.  Malaysia is still under MCO but things have been relaxed.  Economies are allowed to open and our time out has also been relaxed. Schools and institutions of learning remain closed. We are told that henceforth life will not be the same.  There will be a new norm.
Social distancing is what we need to do to stay safe.  We also go about carryiing hand sanitizers and wearing face masks.  This MCO will be until June 9.  Then we wait and see if it will be extended.

As my birthday is on 17th April, I retired without ceremony and fanfare.  Orders were to Stay at Home to Stay Safe.

However, I have been really, really busy during this period as the Non Governmental Organisation I am attached to have been offering humanitarian aid to the poor and needy.  Those who are daily wage earners and do not have savings are finding it hard to make ends meet.  Luckily the government has come up with packages to help the economy and people.  However, while waiting for the cash pay outs, some families had run of food to eat.  That is where my team comes in,.  We get contributions for to buy send food to these people.  I think this situation is happening throughout the world.  WE are all together in this Pandemic.

So dare friends that about sums up what I have been up to until now.

I will try to do catch up with my blogging,

Love
Li Na
