When the world is going mad, what do you do? Head to Legoland!
Our original plan for this weekend was to go to Bangkok. About a week ago things started looking less stable. Since we hadn’t bought our flights yet. We decided a big city wasn’t the right move right now. Then early in the week, Thailand imposed a 14 day quarantine on an expanded list of countries, including Singapore. No point traveling to sit in the hotel room. A few days later, they partially walked it back and said if you were a tourist you didn’t need to quarantine, but that was pretty confusing to us. We also began to worry Singapore might expand their quarantine list. Too many unknowns for us. As we were all pretty bummed about not going. After a few brainstorms, we decided to head just over the bridge to Malaysia and Legoland.
We finished off the day with a little more car building (they really loved it). Bought some “prizes” in the store. Again, exchange rate in our favor. 3 LEGO sets, 3 mini figures and a bonus set abs mini figure. $128 US. Nice. Finished up with lunch at a KFC 🤢in the mall. Good news is it was only 46 ringitt. $11 us for a family of 5… again, I love Malaysia.
We’re home now after a quick ride across the border. Hopefully we don’t start a new Covid cluster here caught at Legoland Malaysia… All travel is so up in the air right now. We haven’t booked anything yet for spring break. Now that the virus is spreading worldwide it’s hard to know what next week will look like, let alone a month from now! It’s funny how things have changed. We now are worried for our family and friends in the US. It doesn’t seem possible for containment to work there the same way it does here. It’s interesting, some things in our life here are restricted because of the virus, but for the most part, daily life continues. Ryan goes to work and and kids to school. We get our temperature taken and wash our hands a million times per day. I hope the US can get it figured out too so that our family and friends can feel as we do. Concerned but still living our life. Things might change here too. We had an uptick in cases over the weekend. A new cluster developed and it looks to be a big one. The government is cautioning we should plan for a second wave. In the meantime, we’ll all just keep washing our hands…
