2 Weeks In Isolation

It has been now 14 days since I stepped out of my building and 11 days of the officially declared lockdown with people in my area/nation being in quarantine. 2 weeks of staying indoors and not seeing another soul other than my parents and the odd delivery guys from Swiggy & Zomato (they are allowed to do their jobs). Thank the advancements in technology that gave us these apps and others for ordering and getting food and other supplies directly to our homes.

Work has been going on. I’m even upgrading to a new plan that gives me higher speed for longer – 100mbps for a 750GB cap. That’s awesome. I’m currently attending a training for a new process that they want some of us to help out with on a temporary basis. Most of us are in India – Cochin, Hyderabad & Chennai while the person from our same company who is conducting the training is from the Philippines. All this is done with the aid of the internet, some applications we had to download and headsets and mics. Here I am below attending a session 2 days ago.


We’ve managed to get most of the groceries that we need. And they are adding more and more options every day. For instance, yesterday I opened one of the apps and saw 6 grocery stores available and today it’s 10! Sweet. However they seem to not be keeping the instant coffee powders that we usually get. None in fact. I’ve managed to get some Coke and then moved onto juice, mainly apple juice. Since it is so hot and humid, I’ve been quenching my thirst drinking cold juice on ice.

And also a lot of water with ice. I sweat buckets a day. We’ve been buying food atleast 1 a day. Like either curries with chappathi or if we managed to get pre-cooked chappathis from a store then I just buy curries which we tend to have some left over and use the next day for lunch or dinner. Last night was a delicious chicken sausages with pepper and onions and some onion rings with mayo & ketchup. We had that with chappatis.
