New Korean Drama

It’s been a while since I have not posted anything in regards to Korean Dramas. Mostly, because I did not have time for watching any, and limited to one or a maximum of 2 episodes per night.

I finished the Goblin, as you know from my previous posts 😄😁 and considered starting a new Korean series, the Coffee Prince. I believe that Gong Yoo is a very good actor and wanted to try another Korean Drama with him in the main role.

Coffee Prince

The Coffee Prince is a 2007 Korean Drama that surprises an irresponsible bachelor that pretends to be gay so he can avoid blind dates arranged by his grandma. He hires Eun-chan to be his lover, not knowing that she is a female.

I managed to arrive at episode 5 yesterday and I am continuing to enjoy the series over a cup of hot lemon tea. I like how a movie keeps you trapped in its story with its cute and funny feelings.

Coronavirus in Suceava

Dupa cum bine stiti, din pacate, Suceava este acum supranumit epicentrul Coronavirusului. In fiecare zi se confirma noi cazuri de persoane afectate si situatia devine mai gri de la o ora la alta.

In data de 29.3.2020 avem in Suceava 317 pacienţi din care 149 sunt confirmati cu noul coronavirus. Chiar si Gheorghe Flutur, presedintele Consiliului Judetean Suceava a fost testat pozitiv pentru coronavirus aflandu-se in spitalul sucevean chiar in acest moment.

Sunt atat de multe stiri in ultima perioada despre situatia scapata de sub control la spitalul din Suceava incat nici nu mai stii ce sa crezi si ce sa nu crezi. Autoritatile nu se simt vinovate pentru ceea ce s-a intamplat si nu isi reproseaza nimic cu privire la managementul situatiei.

Dar intrebarea este, daca autoritatile nu se simt vinovate pentru ce s-a intamplat, atunci cine ar trebui? Vorbim despre sute de persoane infectate si probabil mult mai multe cazuri nedeclarate din lipsa testelor.

Situatia politica

Recent, ministrul sanatatii Victor Costache si-a dat demisia, fix in aceasta perioada de criza. Ludovic Orban, prim ministrul Romaniei, spune ca regreta situatia dar o intelege. Adica, cum poti tu ca prim ministru cu o zi inainte sa anunti un plan puternic pentru combaterea virusului si a doua zi sa renunti, ma depaseste situatia.

Si am impresia ca si conducerea statului este depasita, nimeni nu era pregatit pentru o asemenea infectare in masa. Insa ar trebui cel putin sa actionam inteligent si sa luam masuri care ar putea sa schimbe realitatea trista in care ne aflam.

Aud tot timpul la comunicari de presa afirmatii precum: incercam, vom face demersuri, lucram la asta. Intrebarea mea si cred ca a tuturor romanilor este cand se va realiza ceva concret si clar precum: astazi am facut asta, se va lua urmatoarea masura incepand din acest moment.

Companiile doneaza, oamenii de rand doneaza pentru situatia din Suceava insa statul sta practic cu mainile in buzunar si priveste de departe. Pai statul ce face? Unde este fondul de urgenta si de ce nu se implica?

Informari si dezinformari

Alaltaieri ma uitam la emisiunea Starea Natiei cu Dragos Patraru si de asemenea la stirile recente si pur si simplu ma enervam. Nu inteleg cum este posibil ca un manager de spital sa cheme toti doctorii, impreuna pentru a-i testa pentru acest virus, din ordin dat de ministru (ministrul nu stia absolut nimic despre acest lucru).

Astfel, doctorii, asistentele si tot personalul spitalului, fie ca discutam despre persoane testate pozitiv sau negativ cu Coronavirus au fost aduse in acelasi loc pentru un set de teste. Contaminarea a fost inevitabila.

De asemenea, discutam despre o lipsa de personal majora in spital, lipsa ventilatoarelor deoarece majoritatea sunt defecte. Discutam cu o colega si imi spunea ca sora ei se pregateste sa munceasca ca si asistenta in spital dar ca a fost obligata sa isi aduca singura echipament de acasa. Sunt probleme majore, lacune care afecteaza sistemul medical si pe noi, indirect.

Concluzii

Personal, nu am mai iesit din casa de doua saptamani, si atunci am iesit pentru cumparaturi necesare. Muncesc de acasa si incerc sa evit contactul cu alte persoane, aici facand referire la vecini si familie. Nu mi-am mai vazut parintii si ceilalti membri ai familei de mai mult de o luna.

Imi este dor de familie, de colegi si de rutina zilnica, insa nu pot risca sa ies afara. Sunt constienta ca sunt inca tanara la 24 de ani si desi nu prezint simptome de virus, pot fi o sursa de contaminare pentru ceilalti, raspandind virusulul.

Imi doresc din tot sufletul sa se gaseasca o solutie pentru aceasta problema si sa revenim la normal cat mai curand. Sper ca autoritatile sa isi revina la timp si sa actioneze inteligent in aceste situatii de criza nu doar pentru Suceava cat si pentru toate zonele Romaniei afectate.

Full day in quarantine

Hello, my dear readers, how was your day?

I am happy to say that my day was so full that I do not even know when the time flew by. It’s an amazing thing to happen, because we are in full lockout due to the Coronavirus situation.

I am trying to stay inside so that I can protect myself and the other people out there, by not contacting the virus and spreading it. I am staying inside as I am told to, safe and protected.

A few days ago I was reading another blogger’s post with ideas on what you should do on a quarantine day. So, Saturday for me was my free day and I decided to fill it out with something, anything.

I did not had to look out much for ideas as I had to cleanup the house and more. So I started simple, with a coffee. Then I managed to clean the kitchen, the cabinets, throwing out the unnecessary things, spraying the windows, washing the curtain, wipe the dust and use the vacuum cleaner.

I made sure to wash clothes and blankets and to iron the clothes as well. Cleaned the carpets throughout the house, aired the rooms. Moreover, a thing that I tend to do often with the virus situation, clean the bathroom and appliances that may be a source of infection.

Took care of the bedroom and changed the sheets, the blanket, sprayed the window, added the freshly washed and ironed curtain and removed any strand of dust that was present.

After cleaning all the house, I felt hungry and needed to cook something, so I managed to cook pasta and to bake a simple cake, personal recipe. Fifi was on the list of active chores so I washed him and cut out his nails.

After two hours of exercising I took the time to enjoy a hot bath and to listen to piano relaxing music. Now, at the end of the day, I am writing a new post and drinking a hot cup of lemon tea.

Conclusions

I realized that in this quarantine situation the best things that you can do is take care of you, the house and your family. Seeing the family members happy and keeping them entertained is one thing, plus seeing the house sparkling of cleanliness is like a dream come true. A dream that most of us usually did not manage to accomplish due to long shifts at work and being involved in many projects.

Now is the time to do the things that you loved doing previously but give up because of the time management. Like for example I love blogging and make an appointment every day with WordPress, reading the posts of my fellow bloggers and writing posts. Also, I would love to go back to painting and start the activity again, trying some new projects on the home walls.

What I am saying is instead of crying out loud and wishing to go outside putting in danger you and the ones around you try to focus on what you enjoy doing, make a difference. It will be a good change for you and the world.

A new day in quarantine

A new day has arrived, it’s Thursday. With this quarantine going on lately, I can barely feel the days passing, as I am living a feeling that every day is the same one and the time is lost in an hourglass, which keeps turning around moving the sand.

God allows me to wake up every day joyful though, filled with energy and happy to start another day. I move from the bed, freshen up, make a coffee, pet the cat and start working again.

I get to move the curtain, see the new light of the day, the risen sun but then when I throw my eyes on the street there is nobody, the path is empty. I don’t even see the stray cats or the gimp cute dog, Taz. All I can hear is silence, way too much silence.

I miss the view, the people, the atmosphere and mostly everything that made my day. It is funny how you can have it all and not be aware of it, treating it as it’s yours by the divine right, and then to simply lose it all in a moment.

Work routine

Every day is filled with new people and new challenges at work, new voices and new problems to be resolved on the line. Every day appears to be different, but every day cannot be felt truly.

Customers are scared of this Virus Situation and it can be felt through their lack of patience, their incapability of resolving situations that appear easy on a first look. The network speed is poor as there are many persons out there trying to escape the quarantine at home.

Last thoughts

To describe the situation in a few words, it’s a left-handed condition and at times I can feel like I had enough and that I want to give up. But then I remember why I started in the first place and have the hope that things will get better and we will overcome this storm that started against us.

That we are powerful and strong beings and that are capable of overcoming what challenges us at the moment, and that after this we will become more mature and able to face life and it’s ups and down’s with more courage and determination.

It’s being said that God only gives us what we can take, and never the things that are out of our power. Let’s remember that we are not alone in this life journey and always have God by our side. We are never alone.

At the end of the day, the most important thing is to know that we, our loved ones and the people around us are healthy and safe. And if being apart for now from them is what makes them better than it’s the least we can do.

As Meghan Daum said: „Distance is not for the fearful, it’s for the bold. It’s for those who are willing to spend a lot of time alone in exchange for a little time with the one they love. It’s for those who know a good thing when they see it, even if they don’t see it nearly enough.”

Let’s try to distance ourselves from the people around us for the moment, and be bold, letting the fear vanish. We will be able to cherish more the future times spent together in health when the situation will calm down together with the loved ones and the people around us.

Take care, stay safe and stay protected!
