During this pandemic, my family and I just stay at home. At the beginning of April, we started to feel afraid of what appeared on the news about the Covid-19 and it got worse when the number of infected people increased. In the month of April-May, all of the borders of Aceh were closed. My family and I just stayed at home and did our duty to earn our daily bread from home by open-order drawing through online. On the first of June, I heard that the restriction was open. I felt like I needed to meet people again even just for a meet-up and chit-chat face to face, no online meeting, and I needed a fresh air because I was really sick staying at home nonstop. I chose to visit my grandma, aunty, cousin, uncle, and their children in Sabang. I stayed there for a week. Malaka was also happy playing with the kids. The day before going back to Banda Aceh, we spent our time right before Maghrib on a beach near to Sabang Fair while Malaka rode the odong-odong*.
