2020 is like Whoa!
2020 came in with a bang. I decided I wanted to go to Shanghai for my birthday so I could mark Disneyland Shanghai off the list. My birthday is at the end of January. If you know anything about world news you know that Wuhan was reporting a deadly virus that had flu like symptoms. At the time it didn't seem like it was too serious so we decided to continue with our planned trip. Oh what a trip it was! The world only saw the virus through what was being presented in the media, however, being in China was a different story. Once we landed, everyone was wearing masks and everything was closed. We did manage to make it to Disneyland. It was unreal to see how people were dealing with a virus that was still being debated if it was serious or not. Once we got home and settled we realized that this virus was ripping through the entire world. We are so thankful that we went into the belly of the beast and came out unscathed. It is so sad that many people all over the world don't have that luxury. Enjoy our Shanghai Disneyland pictures.
Schools have been closed now for 4 weeks and they will not reopen for the remainder of this school year here in the UAE. The UAE Government did an excellent job of being proactive. Malls are closed and so many other businesses are too. The cases un the UAE increased rather slowly but now we are seeing exponential growth because people failed to quarantine after traveling abroad. This is no longer an issue as airports are closed.
So, we exercise, I conduct online classes, the Husbando streams (Youtube - Split Media Solutions, Twitch - SgtSplit), the Husbando is also doing professional development and taking advantage of master classes, and I cook and we eat.
I have been vegetarian for 7 weeks and I have seen so many benefits being on this journey. I have also found so many plant based foods that I don't think I'll ever go back to meat unless it's for a chicken wing or 2 or 10. Who am I kidding, 20. With all of this free time I do plan on doing more Unique Does Cooking and letting my creative juices flow. Be on the lookout for what's to come.
Stay safe. Wash your hands. And Be Uniquely You!

I love all Shanghai Disneyland pictures you had. It was a good thing that you were still abler to roam around before all these stuff happened. It was very devastating that we need to suffer this way right now. We are not allowed to go out and travel because the virus might be somewhere else. Well, that's going to be for our own safety too. By the way, I am hoping that all our lives will be back to its usual routine. I actually miss the right idea of living a normal life. I might go to Shanghai years after; once I am given the chance!
