10 Ways Filipinos Can Be Productive While Under Home Quarantine

SAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles, San Francisco Bureau) – Whether they live  in California, New York, Manila or Baguio, Filipinos can be productive while under home quarantine or shelter-in-place.

Here are some tips from The Adobo Chronicles:

  1. Disinfect all rooms and areas of your home, and don’t forget to disinfect the plastic covering of your expensive couch and dining chairs.
  2. This would be a good time to practice and improve on your singing. You do have a videoke machine in your home, don’t you?
  3. Brush up on your word knowledge. Play scrabble but maintain a safe distance from the other players, and don’t forget to wear your designer masks and disposable hand gloves.
  4. If you don’t have a scrabble game, play a game of dama, using tanzan (bottle caps) from the case of San Mig Light you and your friends drank last night.
  5. Teach your children proper hygiene by asking them to wash the dishes with soap and water after each meal.
  6. Do some cupboard and refrigerator spring cleaning. Get rid of jars and bottles of bagoong and atchara that’s been sitting there for years!
  7. Do some dusting on items that could harbor viruses and bacteria, especially your giant wood-carved spoon and fork, your wall carpet of The Last Supper and your capiz shell lampshades.
  8. Sit down and make a list of the people you borrowed cash from but were never paid back. When the home quarantine is over, pay them back. After all, you’ll be saving a lot of money by staying home.
  9. Open your baul (treasure chest), retrieve old family photos and reminisce those days of bellbottoms and platform shoes.
  10. Still bored? Embark on a home science project: try to separate the ingredients of your 3 in 1 coffee.

Stay safe!
