4 Things to Do to Cope with Your Coronavirus Stress

Hi everyone!

I hope everything is going well with you amid this coronavirus situation. I know things have been tough lately. Some of you probably don’t get used to the idea of self-quarantine to the point that you’re somewhere in between scared and pissed off with the situation.

You’re not alone. I spend most of my days staying at home, doing what you call self-quarantine, with or without coronavirus. And I still miss the time when I took things for granted, something as simple as going out to eat without the anxiety that I might carry the virus on the way back.

In the past couple of weeks, I realized that some of you might come across my post on what to do during self-quarantine. This time, I want to share with you on things to do in order to cope with your coronavirus stress. Because honestly, we’ve all been there.

So, what are those?!

The Best Luggage for Your Travel Companion: Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage VS NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on

As I stated in my short profile on the sidebar of my blog, I usually add on checked-in baggage whenever I travel. Apart from back when I worked as a flight attendant, the only time I traveled with carry-on luggage was a couple of years ago when I went to Singapore for Arsenal’s pre-season game on International Champion Cup.

However, I still have a few cabin luggage that I occasionally use for a short getaway. It doesn’t matter that I still end up putting it on the checked-in baggage on the flight.

The point is to at least have cabin luggage, in case I have no additional budget to add the baggage for a flight like my short Singapore trip when I was broke but wanted to go for the sake of football.

And today, I’m going to talk about two cabin-sized luggage that could be your consideration for your new travel companion. Those two that I will talk about in this post is the review between Tumi Lattitude International Hardside Carry-on Luggage and NaSaDen Heidelberg Carry-on.

So, between the two, which one is better?

4 Things to Do During Self-Quarantine (That Are Not Napping or Snacking)

I’ve never thought that I’d be able to write about a topic that I am an expert in. But when I do, it is ironically when there’s a pandemic outbreak like coronavirus. Or what some of you say Covid-19 case.

Now that almost all countries lockdown in their area, those who don’t still recommend people to do self-quarantine in order to prevent the spreading of the virus. I understand some of you might get quite frustrated with the idea of having to isolate yourself from your environment. But guess what?! I shamelessly do this all the time.

I’ve got the privilege to work from home. And when I don’t travel, what we call self-quarantine is basically my lifestyle. I barely meet people because I have all the conversations through e-mail, Slack, or Whatsapp.

Despite the fact I live with my parents, I have the second floor of my parents’ house for me since my sister lives in Jakarta. The only creatures that get in touch with me often are basically just my cats. Some people see it as a miserable thing to happen to someone. I’d say it’s a blessing.

So, in this post, I’ll share with you some things to do during self-quarantine, in case you have no idea what to do during this hard time for everyone. Believe me, self-quarantine is not that hard. The hard thing is those people who still have to go to work to make their ends meet during this time.

Novia Hotel Saigon: A Unique, Affordable (Love) Hotel in Ho Chi Minh City

Hi everyone! 🙂

For those who follow me on Instagram, you may have already watched one of my Instastories about this hotel in Ho Chi Minh City. The hotel that intrigued me prior to booking it, with an exceptional welcome greeting when I got there, only to be surprised when I arrived in the hotel room.

And if you happened to be one of those people who asked me to spill the tea about the hotel, here’s the answer: it’s Novia Hotel.

A likely love hotel where you could actually spend some time to fulfill your fantasy, because they have a lot of themed rooms. From something as innocent as Hello Kitty and Doraemon, to some sex fantasy like BDSM. 😛

So, what kind of room did I get and how was my stay there?! Well, I’ll write the review here. So let’s see!

6 Lazy Songs: A Playlist for Homebody who Loves to Slack Around the House

I’m a homebody person. When I’m not traveling, you can easily find me working or taking a nap at home. That, except for when I’m in the mood to go out and find something to eat elsewhere. Other than that, I’m happy enough to wait for the delivery man to bring me some good food from outside. I’m like a real definition of a couch potato, and I’m not even sorry.

Just recently, one of my friends asked me out as he knew I just finished my Indochina trip. I told him that I’d let him know when I’m in the mood to go out, and he was like… No problem, I could pick you up at home.

What he doesn’t understand is that when I’m not in the mood to go out, it really doesn’t matter if he picks me up at home. I just won’t go out.

But then that event gave me an idea to create this post. I’m compiling some songs that are suitable for people like me: the couch potato who gets too comfortable at home. I’ve found only 6 songs on my playlist, so feel free to add it if you have some other songs to recommend! 🙂
