What’s your daily routine like?
I do very simple things when I am at home. I wake up early morning, usually like 5 am and then I choose my tea, as I have a small box with a variety of teas in it. I make some breakfast for myself, then water my plants and feed the fish in a small aquarium; she is my companion. If I have anything to clean or wash clothes I usually do that afterwards and maybe relax or talk to my Mum – she always makes me laugh and I feel more relaxed by talking to her. I plan something nice to cook usually as I am a foodie – I end up always cooking seafood and some Indian style veggies. I then do my facials as I have some facial kits with 4 or 5 types of mask. In between this I have breaks with my favourite tea and an interesting series, and of course I do hair oil massages for myself which is really relaxing.
When and how do you buy groceries?
At this stage, I go grocery shopping once a week or sometimes every two weeks. I try to avoid weekends as it’s very crowded. I stock five types of vegetables including leafy vegetables and any other which I find fresh and of course, I stock seafood as my love for seafood is unending. Apart from that, I stock the necessary day-to-day items.
How do you stay in touch with your friends, family and colleagues?
Usually, WhatsApp is the best tool to be connected; social media channels also give us access to their activities.
