What’s your favorite part of your work-from-home routine?
My favourite parts (I can’t pick just one) of work from home, is that I can work in my jammies. Or more correctly, it’s the South Indian version called a lungi. Lungis are so comfortable to wear and especially in a state like ours with it’s hot & humid months, it’s so much a relief.
The other is the money I save on cafeteria food and travel to and fro the office, which used to take a sizeable chunk of my salary. Instead I eat more decently cooked food made at home or ordering in nicer food from reliable restaurants. Also, I tend to eat a lot more veggies, fruits and juice at home than if I am at the office, as they have easy access to Coke, Pepsi, 7Up etc and that’s what I tend to drink a lot.
Next is the time I save not having to travel to an office. I start my work a few minutes before my shift starts and as soon as I am done and shut down the work system, I can do whatever I wish to do. That includes going straight to sleep, watch sports / tv shows / movies or listen to music.

Nineteen-year-old forward Marquinhos has joined us from Sao Paulo on a long-term contract. The young Brazilian youth international, full name Marcus Vinicius Oliveira Alencar, developed through the Sao Paulo youth system, progressing into the first team squad and making his first team debut as an 18-year-old last July. Marquinhos made 33 first team appearances during his time with Sao Paulo and was a part of the squad which won the Compeonato Paulista in 2021.
The young forward, who has represented Brazil at under-16 and under-17 levels, will travel to London from Brazil in the coming weeks to join up with his new team mates for pre-season training. Technical director Edu said: “We’re delighted to have completed the transfer with Sao Paulo, as Marquinhos was a player we had been watching for a while. At 19, he is still very young, so he is a player for the future. We look forward to Marquinhos now joining us for pre-season, making his new home, and continuing to grow and develop with us.” Everyone at Arsenal welcomes Marquinhos to the club.
The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes. ESPN reported last month that the deal would be worth €3.5 million and that the clubs agreed a fee after Marquinhos rejected multiple contract offers from the Brazilian club and sources suggest Arsenal moved quickly to secure a cut-price agreement. Marquinhos is a left-footed forward also able to operate as a winger but he is viewed by Arsenal as a future prospect rather than an immediate first-team signing.
