Has the Corona (COVID-19) changed your life so far?

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I am now definitely never taking a cruise ship holiday. Being imprisoned in a shit shopping centre never was very appealing. All you dirty buggers who are only now washing your hands deserve to get norovirus.

Any Corona virus in Soi 6 .?
No, but it could be a challenge of industrial proportions tracking down the contact chain if it were an epicentre. :D

I would have thought that because you handle money, tuk tuks whatever when you are outside your home then you would automatically wash your hands when you get home. I dump what ever I have bought home then wash my hands. No different than before this convid-19 thingy.

It has made me a better person, in many profound ways.

Then pick up all the diry bags you just dumped and put the virus in the fridge to preserve it smeared over all the containers you bought :-)
If you want to go nuts about it my brother in law used to wash everything in hot water before he put it in the fridge. he even scrubbed fruit ffs
There is a school of thought that says dirty hands make a heath immune system because you constantly get small exposures to bugs, giving you body a chance to develop immunities

I have given up on street food. I got used to breakfasting from whatever lady pedaled by on a bicycle. One of my faves: chicken noodle bean stew breakfast, 3000 Huns per bowl.

Now I eat cold peanut butter sandwiches for breakfast while peeping at the streets through my window blinds.

IF it spreads and hundreds of millions die maybe the historians of the future will look back and say that the world was given a second chance ? :beer1:

No fever, but I seem to be sweating a lot more than usual lately.
