If this is the end, God please make it quick

The pandemic season is still going on, abusing everybody's business day in and day out. The numbers of infection is still going on, and politicians is taking this advantage to lock people down, so no one else can discuss about how to form a new government. Like it or not, they even call for election(I'm not saying the super power country, even my own country does it).

And when things doesn't goes their way, they went and see the king and wanted the king to give them permission to declare "emergency". I think the king is smart enough to see this is a political move, rather than truly wanted to help the people, and proceed to stop these non-sense request from the current power.

One of my favortie Starbucks, and I believe many of us in the nearby office tower love this Starbucks too, due to it's situated at some secluded area, it's very comfortable and we always meet the similar faces around here. It is now, empty like half the time(or most of the time). At least, for the 2 hours I was sitting there enjoying my coffee and doing my work, I took a head count and there's less than 10 customer order. I don't know how long they can last, but their staff force has been greatly reduced to minimal, currently 2 person serving the entire shop.

The shopping mall right opposite of my office, I used to hang out here for cakes in the afternoon, they're no longer there. There's a banking outlet here, so I don't need to go up town for my banking, and that too, left with a glass window. The grocery shopping is also done, the entire building are now vacant.

The petrol station that I usually grab a cup of coffee, hangout on Friday morning before headed to office, is also very quiet. All these suddenly reminds me of the movie - I am legend, by Will Smith. What if I'm the only one left here, I don't think I will be the legend. I'd probably eating all the junk food in the petrol stations and died of heart attack several years later. Sad but true.

And would like to share with you the last photo when I took this shot over the weekend, where I went out going for a run. There's very little traffic out there. I thought to myself, was it due to the pandemic? Or was it due to the numbers that the politicians trying to create panic? I have read stories about husband sending a sick wife to the facility and never seen her again. 2 weeks later, the husband was returned with an ern of ash and some few belongings of the wife. Please God, if this it he end of mankind, make it quick. If it isn't, please take it away and punish those who responsible for creating chaos and panic among the people.

Dear @davidke20

Interesting and kind of depressing choice of topic. You cannot imagine how badly I would like to be back to Malaysia right now. Europe is absolutely crashed by covid. Poland (population similar to Malaysia) reached already 28k cases daily and it's scary to even think of going outdoor.

In many ways it's very strange, because people seem to live like Covid19 isn't a big deal. Sure - most wear masks, but that's about it. Malaysia seem to be more of a ghost town - and perhaps that's why your country is doing so well when it comes to minimizing amount of people being infected.

And when things doesn't goes their way, they went and see the king and wanted the king to give them permission to declare "emergency". I think the king is smart enough to see this is a political move, rather than truly wanted to help the people, and proceed to stop these non-sense request from the current power.

King? Do you mean Sultan?
I've heard about it from my wife. It's very first time I've heard anything good she said about Malaysian Sultans :P

Stay safe and have a great weekend,
Yours, Piotr

Or put it this way, there's is minimal to no affect at all with C19. The virus is now declared as dangerous AF due to CDC asymptomatic spread. Most arguable is, it has no symptom to healthy people, so why do people worry about it? And according to the reports, most people gotten killed by the virus, are those already posses chronic diseases, that the virus possibly sped up or further deteriorate the deceased. I know I can't say this out, because there is always a challenge coming back to me, why don't I go and work at the frontline and see how scary this virus are. I'm just as afraid as anybody else. There is no argument and the government has the final say. Until today, there's only several states in the country are still free to move, the rest of us are technically locked down. And funny enough, everytime when they announce a lockdown, they give 2 days time so those idiots can have time to move back to their home town and be quarantine at their comfort. LOL. Ain't that help to spread? Many hasn't really thought if they're the carrier and possibly bring the virus back to their home town and pass it on to their family.

More stories of Sultans can be found here at Wiki

I referred the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong as King, as it's the easiest way to describe the status and title of the country's leader. Once again, more detail of the King's title in Wiki.

The Yang di-Pertuan Agong (lit. 'He Who is Made Lord', Jawi: يڠ دڤرتوان اݢوڠ‎), also known as the Supreme Head or the King

Thank you for your awesome reply @davidke20

I'm just confused little bit here:

Most arguable is, it has no symptom to healthy people, so why do people worry about it?

I think there has been thousands of thousands of cases proving, that not only old and sick people get affected by Covid19. But many young and strong and healthy as well.

I'm just as afraid as anybody else

Glad to hear that. I wouldn't like to lose a good friend.

Stay safe,
Yours, Piotr

I know. I'm just saying, it's arguable. Many stories flying around saying, some are literally heart breaking. There's one recently surfaced, saying the wife doesn't feel well. The husband sent the wife for test and confirmed, but the husband was negative. So, the husband were sent home for home quarantine with the kids, and the wife be left at the hospital. Several weeks later, the husband were returned with a disinfected cell phone and an ern with some ashes in it. Not too sure how true is was, but it's heart breaking enough, at least to my book. But, logically these people should come up and claim their story? No? So far these stories has been going on as "one of my friend", "my friend's acquaintance said", "my distance relative, my in law's maternal side's cousin brother's sister in law's brother in law". And when being asked, who? Who exactly are "they", somehow magically the person does not want to be know and let the sad story end there and never be told.

I don't know. Am I afraid of the virus? Probably. Am I afraid of the authority that said the virus is scary? Oh fuck yes. More than the virus itself!

Hi @davidke20

I just read your reply (somehow I've skipped it before).

Am I afraid of the authority that said the virus is scary?

I'm not sure what did you mean?

Somehow, I am more afraid of the politicians than the virus. The virus can kill, but the politicians can use the virus as a weapon, as an excuse.
