    Time to revisit old norms

    Now that we’re seeing the easing of restrictions, with air borders opening up to allow travel to resume, I would like to see other aspects of life returning to normal.

    For two years, we were subjected to news that brought fear and anxiety to the populace.

    We traded our freedom for public health, and rightfully so. The global COVID-19 death toll is enormous. It’s hard to fathom the number of casualties if world governments allowed the virus to run its course.

    Now that we’re in the endemic phase, perhaps our focus should be the collective mental health, in the form of popular pre-pandemic activities that have been shelved, such as cooking demonstrations and teh tarik competitions in the physical form.

    The COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to move our lives to the virtual world. While it helped to arrest the spread of the virus, it also severed the social connection that can only be forged in the physical world.

    Perhaps it is time to revisit some of these activities that have been enjoyed by so many of us in the past.
