- Where are you quarantined, since when and with who?
I initially self-quarantined beginning mid-March in London. I then decided to fly home to Manila right before lockdown in the UK. I did over 14 days of post-travel self-isolation and have been quarantined with my family since then.
- What has been your best quarantine activity?
I thought I'd have free time with quarantine but I've actually found myself just as busy, if not even busier. However, like many, I've rediscovered the joy of baking. I've been baking almost weekly, which I hadn't done for many years. Of course, Netflix and all the other online streaming platforms have also been a great and much needed source of entertainment. I really enjoyed watching The Last Dance and the home edition episodes of some of my favourite comedians like Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah.
I've also discovered a lot of small businesses - from local farmers, restaurants, bakeries, home kitchens and bars that are now all doing home deliveries to workout studios that are providing online classes - there are just so many. Placing orders and enjoying their products hasn't only been a great quarantine activity but also a way to continue supporting small businesses.
