Are you under home quarantine? Well, you may be isolated, but you are not alone! In an attempt to curb the spread of COVID-19, the global pandemic that has brought many cities to a near standstill, Thailand has made a 14-day self-quarantine mandatory for all travelers entering the Kingdom. On top of that, the governor of Phuket has ordered a week-long lockdown of the island, from 24-31 March, in a bid to control the spread of the virus.
While it is absolutely necessary to practice social distancing at a trying time like this, home quarantine does not have to be as dull as you may think. Here are 5 fun things you can do:
1. Try a New Recipe
Get your apron and your chef’s hat, because you are going to cook up a storm in the kitchen. Not being able to go out and eat at the amazing restaurants in Phuket does not mean that you cannot enjoy delicious food. It is the perfect time to try new recipes that tantalize your tastebuds. If you want to learn to add Western twists to your Thai dishes, check out Marion’s Kitchen on YouTube. If you do not know where to start, you can go on to Tasty and pick what makes your mouth water from the hundreds and thousands of recipes available. One thing is certain – you will emerge from this quarantine a seasoned chef.
2. Beautify Your Garden
Have you been meaning to tend to your garden? Now is the time! You can trim the shrubs, pluck out any weeds, and fertilize the soil to make it ideal for plant growth. If you would like to grow new flowers, herbs, or even vegetables, you can order those plant seeds off Lazada or Amazon as well as any gardening tools you need.
3. Watch the Movies and TV Shows You Never Had Time to See
If you have always wanted to watch that TV show with too many seasons or the list of movies you never got around to watching, you can go on a marathon now! Go on to Netflix or Amazon Prime Video, get yourself a subscription, and start binging!
4. Play Games with Friends
You are probably wondering, “How can I play games with my friends when under quarantine?” Well, you can play games with them without inviting them over. Go to your App Store or Play Store, look for multiplayer games, download them and have your friends download them as well. Psych! is an exciting game where you can bluff your buddies with false answers. If you want something action-packed, be sure to download Call of Duty and fight opponents alongside your friends on different battlefields. Whatever you choose, you are guaranteed to have some fun!
5. Pick Up Some New Skills
Want to learn to dance? There are many great tutorials available online that will teach you some moves. Want to practice yoga? Download a yoga app and it will show you the ropes. Want to learn to knit? There are many bloggers who can teach you tricks and techniques. The point is, you can learn whatever you wish to learn online, thanks to technological advances. All you need is time. Since you have plenty of it now, you can learn anything you want.
There are so many other things you can do during your home quarantine in Phuket. Chances are, you have already figured out how to have fun. At the same time, it is essential that you wash your hands regularly, practice good hygiene, and take precautionary measures. Stay safe!
