Today, my friends, is Day 2 of my long vacation. I had to file my leaves mid year and even though chances of flying was slim to none, I’m glad I lodged this two week off from working from home.
And since I’m feeling a bit courageous D and I headed to the mall to run some chores. I only had 4 things with me – my face mask, face shield, keys, and mobile phone. The pandemic encouraged more people to go cashless or use mobile wallet so whenever I go out it’s much lighter.
The stores were still mostly empty but there is a bit more people out and about than in previous weeks. When I got to Greenbelt park this caught my eye and I just had to take a photo. I realized in a couple of months it’ll be Christmas!
This was a heartwarming sight. I miss hearing Christmas songs, which used to play nonstop as early as September, in previous years. I guess they’re still playing in the department stores, but I haven’t heard them much in the rare instances I go out. This inspired me to me create a new playlist on Spotify – something to play in the background as I catch up on reading books during my break.
