Sri Lanka Quarantine

From Langkawi to Ahangama

So, here are all the photos off my phone from months ago. I have been meaning to do this for two weeks, but finally I get around to doing it on the second last day of quarantine here in Sri Lanka. It has gone very quickly. I have been surfing most days, I did my ten thousand steps every day, I swam in the pool a couple of times a day. I thought I was fit until I tried surfing again, and whew! I am not fit. After two weeks I can manage to go out in the water for half an hour and stand up on the surboard now! Woohoo.

Starting off from Langkawi about a month ago. Here is Kien with his first eggs from his chooks. He is so proud.

And his first flower in his garden. I have no idea what it is. But it is extremely beautiful.

Not really a river, just a filthy black drain, ha ha.

Jalan Sultan in Chinatown. There were a bunch of homeless dudes living under my window and screaming their heads off at 4am in the morning. I loved it.

This is the overhead subway, light rail, on the way to the hospital to get my pcr test done.

This is the plane to Singapore. I forget the name of the airline.

Scoot at Changi

I waited in the transit lounge at Changi for ten hours. So boredom. I did about twenty laps around that lounge.


This is the view from my room at Quarantine. I had to do two weeks in this hell-hole!
