    "我是一名自由业者—化妆师 (Freelance makeup artist)。在新加坡完成大学后已经在这里居住了20年的马来西亚人。疫情爆发以来影响了各行各业的生计,我也不例外。三月至今我一共只做了少过15单的工做。开始时真的觉得惨了,没工作没收入,又得关在家里该怎么办。阻断措施开始几天,在家里几乎没什么事做,结果全身不舒服。所以我决定打起精神,让自己有点事做。而最简单的方法就是要有一定的作息时间。 我从一日三餐做起。每天定时准备三餐。然后每天给我的花浇两次水,有时也除草修剪花草,又可以晒太阳,又可以做运动,活动筋骨。化妆师没办法work from home,但是即使没工作我也要做点跟我化妆师有关的事。所以我开始在我的IG上载一些化妆小贴士,也尝试做了几次Live , 每个礼拜我也做一个简单的短片,把我一个星期内所做的事用照片做记录。阻断期间,我又找到了一个让我很有推动力的活动,我参加了mask sewn with love 活动,制作布口罩捐给有需要的人。这几年我因为想要学习新技能,上了一些缝纫课程,结果竟然派上用场。 这期间大概做了两百个口罩送给公益 ,还有朋友的小孩们。很庆幸我能参与这个活动,让我烦闷的生活有了方向。因为我家人全都在马来西亚,只有我和先生在这里。我们很担心家里的老人家没人照顾,也很想念我的外甥们。我们在这里什么忙都帮不上,真的很难过,只能天天视讯他们,希望他们都平安没事。阻断措施到现在已经4个多月了,我的工作才刚开始有一两个单,婚礼几乎都是延期到2021 年,少数人希望在10月开始可以举办他们的婚礼。我们婚庆行业的朋友们都过得很辛苦,因为大部人都是自由工作者,几乎没有任何的帮助,手停口停的。有些暂时去送外卖,做司机,什么可能的工作都做了。希望疫情可以快快散去,大家才可以继续过生活。在这段期间,日子真的不好过,一不小心人都郁闷起来了,如果有点动力或目标,可能会让日子过的容易一点,有意思一点。大家一起加油吧!"--Contributed by Tan Yun Xin, as part of the "Documenting COVID-19 in Singapore" collection community call.
