For a short time, therefore, because we have not been allowed to leave the district for four weeks now. And this is new because in March during the ‘real’ lockdown, we were not allowed to be more than 10 kilometers from our house. Everywhere there were roadblocks, so yes, you couldn’t go much further than those 10 kilometers. To see it from the positive side, they do everything they can here to let your creativity flourish because now we had to find out which district we live in. And that hasn’t proved to be easy at all. Today, we seem to be on the wrong side of the border, and we are in Kuala Lumpur instead of Petaling, 100 meters apart, oops…
And that’s what our weekends look like, we walk (with masks), drink coffee, play a little bit on the laptop, have lunch in a restaurant, and we walk back again. Then you think, why don’t you take off that mask when you walk outside, no one bothers? In the meantime, we have been stopped by the police once already. The policeman without his mask kindly told us to put ours back on. We are doing everything we can to escape the fine of RM1000, which is €200, so now we are a bit more careful and take it for granted to sweat our asses off in the sun with our protection.
