We live in a strange world where we don’t really have to go outside to do things anymore. Since social distancing measures were implemented, I have worked, shopped, dined in a tiny space of 50 square meters, very much like my days in Shanghai. I thought I would like it but it’s different this time round. The work-shop-dine routine, albeit convenient, is a lonely one at length.

I opened up Bumble, chatted with someone, where he suggested we do a game — where we will ask each other questions, but you are not allowed to ask the same question back. No doubt, it left me frustrated for two reasons. 1, I am hopeless at breaking the ice and 2, I really wanted to know his answers to the questions he was asking me.
