What do you do during home quarantine?

6 Answer(s)

Yifan Wei: Well, it was really hard for the first two weeks. I was always thinking that my winter break shouldn’t be like this. I slept 12h a day and spent almost the other 12h on my phone. Then I realized, it wouldn’t work. So I decided to start a healthy life, both physically and mentally.

Here’s the schedule↓
9:00 get up
have some toast and a cup of coffee
10:30 find a book to read
(It suddenly occurred to me that I haven’t read for such a long time. It’s a good chance to input something.)
13:30 afternoon tea time
(a cup of black tea, sometimes homemade milk tea with homemade tapiocas. I can’t live without tapiocas!!)
14:30 continue reading or do some research
17:30 diner time/watching news and all kinds of videos
20:30 do some stretch and practice locking
(Well, I am a part-time dancer so it’s really important to keep physical strength.)
24:30 go to sleep

And also, I started my French-learning again like...maybe the 49th time.

I didn’t become a creative chef or a pâtissière, but I feel quite satisfied.

Can’t hangout doesn’t mean you can do nothing. It’s a very good chance to do something that you don’t have time for but always wanted to do.
Don’t eat to much
Don’t go on a diet
Don’t sleep all day long
Do some sports
Keep contact with your friends
Talk to your family
And find your own lifestyle!

How’s Luoyang 洛阳 in China? Is it worth a visit?

4 Answer(s)

Quan Zhou: Luoyang is a very livable city. The pace of life is slow, but the infrastructure and image of the town are better than any of my hometowns, Chaoshan and Sanshi. Yes, Luoyang is a city with a rich history, after all. It is a history book that I can never read. She has been the most prosperous city in the world thousands of years ago! She has an urbanization side, and the city's supporting facilities are quite complete, but she does not have the same pace of life as a big city fighting. She is clean and orderly.


How is the situation of Coronavirus in China? And locals in Wuhan?

4 Answer(s)

Vivian Yan: What I heard from my friends in Wuhan:

Her whole family stayed at home all day.
They cannot drive cars to get more groceries anywhere, and they are waiting for proper arrangements shortly.
They still held strong hope as the whole of society is helping them. At least today, Alibaba started to provide necessities for Wuhan, especially for the doctors and nurses.
