First day WFH under this Restricted Movement Order. Tough! Keep getting distracted, like cook lunch already need to clean up and wash the dishes. (Wanted to order delivery but waiting time too long edi)

How's everyone doing?

Working in office today as well.
Apparently my company's HR has confirmed with the government, we semiconductor manufacturing factories can continue operating during the movement restriction but with reduced volume.
So I'll be working 5 days in the factory, 5 days from home.
Looking forward to catching up on some series while I reply emails. biggrin.gif

All the major VPN vendors (Cisco, Juniper, Pulse Secure etc) are giving free extra licenses to all existing customers.
I forsee this order to continue and/or extend beyond 2 weeks so you might want to ask your support people to look into this

Thanks for sharing. Might share this to my boss if the situation is getting worse.

Even we manage to get the license, it is still up to Management and IT to decide whether to implement or not. Also knowing my company's IT ppl, they don't like to do extra works.

So far so good, thankfully my VPN, Skype and emails are working fine. Team is able to work remotely as well and asides from the expected lull in deliverables.

Staying at home has its pros and cons - I seem to focus better when I'm at the office though.

I like WFH, so relaxing and can cook meal in between for lunch. Enjoying it much, but don't like the lack of social life part of it though.

I'm feeling the opposite. Prefer to go back to office for work instead of WFH. Too relaxing at times and less discipline compare to working in office environment. Just my 2 cents.

I was enjoying WFH in the beginning of MCO but now after one month WFH I get bored already. Really miss the socialization part in the office, that's all. Hopefully one day can start implement to WFH as part of the job culture, like in a week you go to office for 3 or 4 days, and get one or two dayss to WFH.

Yes! Hopefully this episode is a lesson to companies that WFH can be part of the job culture. For a 60-40 kind of distribution. Maybe this episode will revolutionize how we work. One can hope right haha

But seems like most companies still have issues with trusting their employees... I guess it can't be helped especially since there may be people who take advantage of WFH.

Sucks to be in that companies where they are required you do a daily report or something along that line. Heck, even worse I read somewhere that some company their IT installed like a tracking software it track if ure being inactive based on ur mouse cursor. That shit is brutal lol

WFH is fine. Although this is my first WFH experience with current company as I've experienced it with my previous companies too.

Managed to close March books reasonably within the timeframe with some expected hiccups as some employees need to adapt to the new environment, such as reducing their reliance on printed hardcopies for reference and etc.

So far so good. I wake up slightly later vs when I was heading to office and I find myself able to sit and focus more on my deliverables.

But I do agree with most of the points here though - missing the social interaction with my colleagues especially face to face, and of course, aircon and hot beverages at the office! biggrin.gif

I feel like now that I work from home, I tend to be lazier. A lot of times just wake up, eat breakfast (without rushing) while doing my work. All in my pyjamas. Not like before MCO, rushing to shower, eat breakfast, catch LRT, etc. So lazy lah me.

I feel like I'm at the edge. I never thought it could be so complicated. It's like I'm about to lose my mind. I also order home delivery all the time because sometimes there's just no energy to leave the house. How do I start thinking about wearing a mask, getting antiseptic, walking with my own legs.Then stand in line, make contact with other people... Just brrrrrr. But on the other hand, I'm a little used to being shut up in my house, and I don't see how I can get back into society like I used to...

I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I can’t wait to get back to the office. I have colleagues that are no longer able to differentiate weekends from weekdays, night from day. Stress levels definitely going up, not to mention the electricity bill too. doh.gif

Works two ways.

Back at office since early May, and it feels good and comfortable to be able to work with the extra monitor and aircon during office hours.

Added with the convenience of having access to the printers/scanners and what-nots plus stable intranet connection at the office, it feels some semblance of normality has slowly been restored.

Of course, whilst WFH, I was able to get more sleep and wake up slightly later plus the comforts from home such as the loo, able to catch 40 winks during lunch break...

There are people who works better from home, and some from office. On the contrary, I used to think it's better to work from home... but after 6 weeks, found out I work better in the office biggrin.gif

You'll slowly get used to it. Start by going out to do takeaways, get groceries etc. Run small errands first to get used to this 'new norm'.

When you're in office just do the necessary precautions - social distancing, mask, sanitizer, no touching your face, wash hands often etc.

Initially it was good to work from home - no travelling, can wake up slightly later etc but after awhile it became stressful when it's hard to talk to my bosses. Yes there's video call and all, but seriously, nothing compares to being able to do discussion face-to-face without line breaking, the laggish audio, seeing the other person's body language etc.

What's worse was it's hard to separate work from home. Home used to the sanctuary where you return and rest, leisure, forget about work. But after weeks of salving in the sanctuary, it no longer felt like safe haven away from work sweat.gif

End of the day I'm just glad to finally be back to office.
