Before this Covid-19, I planned to leave my job 6 months ago. Early this month, 7 people being let go from my workplace, the remaining workers being pay cut from 10% to 20%. All TV commercial production activities are canceled. We are lucky that some clients still come to us to do a simple job with humble budgets.
A Turning Point in Life?
I am here in Singapore for 10 years, and I thought it’s time for me to go back to my country to spend more time with my parents. just about time to leave, here comes the covid19 pandemic, it causes Malaysia has locked-down, I am stuck here without a job, soon.
To me, I am not that worried since I have decided to leave my workplace, I have started planning to save money that is able to sustain myself for a year at least, to be able to live in my country, how? I feel lucky that I don’t have to take up a sudden hiccup amidst this pandemic.

Turning Point in Life 3 Notes
1. Negative Noises Around
On the other side of the world, my jobless friends feel stressful for bills, friends with a job have no sales, business deals have canceled. Malaysians have to stay home, only one person can drive out to buy food, no more than 1 person in any vehicle. Permit needed to work in the office. No hanging out, no restaurants hoping, only delivery service. Groceries stores can open from 8 am – 7 pm.
Some unfortunate events are happening due to the lockdown. Foreign workers are jobless, it causes more crimes like robbing, snatching, fighting, and dispute. They need food, money to survive and perhaps feed their family. We are not advised to go out, more havoc could happen in a quiet alley or even open street.
Fortunately, my family members are safe. My dad is worry about his job, he is a stockbroker, he is trying to work from home but the stock market is bad.
In every life there is a turning point. A moment so tremendous, so sharp and clear that one feels as if one’s been hit in the chest, all the breath knocked out, and one knows, absolutely knows without the merest hint of a shadow of a doubt that one’s life will never be the same. – Julia Quinn
2. Resetting Our Lifestyle – Stay Creative
To me, nothing is more important than getting rid of being sick and ill. Everyone should avoid visiting the clinics, let the infected people have the priority aids. Protecting ourselves can prevent our family from falling sick too.
Encouraging my friends and family, this pandemic might affect our job, our lifestyles, restraining us from our daily activities, but it also a good time for us to stay home, to read more, to readjust our 2020 resolution, to spend time with family. Learn to cook, lessen eating outside food, learn how to survive at home and find pastime activities.
The turning point in the process of growing up is when you discover the core of strength within you that survives all hurt. – Max Lerner
3. Save Our Life First
Stress and worries are unnecessary. Resetting, replan our life, learn how to deal with the crisis, dealing with our emotions are more crucial. Be patient the bad times will eventually mellow down and gone, it just takes time. Life is precious, every day we lose some people, we have to stay calm and stay fit. Worries and anxiety will only weaken our immune system.
Lastly, read more, sing more, paint more. Do anything that is therapeutic. Outdoor activities are good too, remember to also wear a mask, and practice social distancing.
Stay safe everyone. Till next time.
The turning point in the life of those who succeed usually comes at the moment of some crisis. – Napoleon Hill
