Lockdown life in England 英格蘭封城的日子

Lockdown life in England 英格蘭封城的日子

24th November 2020 0 By livinguktaiwan

Ever since UK started lockdown two weeks ago on 5th November, I’ve been posting updates on my Facebook page   every day. Yes, I still use it, as it’s a way to keep my friends, families and fans (yes, I’ve raked in a few, if not many over the years) on what I’m up to. Here’s a summary of my lockdown life over the first two weeks, for anyone who’s interested….

自從英格蘭11月5日封城,我每天都在臉書專頁上分享生活小點滴。今天在這裡來個兩星期重溫。

Lockdown 2.2

收到朋友從台灣寄來
Made in Taiwan 愛心口罩
記得2月初台灣已爆發肺炎
當時鬧口罩慌要配額限售
我這個旅居者當然買不到
幸有幾位當地朋友雪中送炭
這就是其中一位
台灣控制肺炎成績有目共睹
看來英國也應借鏡

Received a box of Made in Taiwan masks from a friend in Taiwan
Covid had already blown up in Taiwan back in February
Masks had to be rationed and of course I couldn’t get my hands on any
A few local friends gave me some despite being short themselves
This is one of those friends
Taiwan’s effort and result in containing Covid is one of the, if not the best in the world
UK has a lot it can look learn from them

已經很久沒做國英式甜點Trifle
不錯不錯
不過其實很容易做😊

It’s been ages since I made trifle
Not bad not bad
But then, it’s so easy to make 😊

Lockdown 2.5

自從疫情開始,這條街已封了一半,方便行人社交距離。這次封城,改了用大花盆, 彷如大大聲在喊 “我們封城了! “

Since Covid started half of this street was cordoned off for social distancing. During this lockdown, big planters have been placed as if shouting out loud “We’re in lockdown! “

人要靜下來
才會看到平常沒留意的東西

When you’re at inner peace
You’ll see things you don’t normally notice


 


Lockdown 2.8

Need to maintain a normal lockdown life
要保持正常生活

Lockdown 2.11

I shared this building on Lockdown 2.6
Same view after the rain
What a difference it makes

Lockdown 2.6曾經分享過這棟建築物
同一角度雨後感覺
截然不同

Lockdown 2.12

You know life is getting boring when you get excited over a can of Christmas limited edition coffee

當你為了一罐聖誕限量版咖啡而感到興奮時,你就知道生活開始苦悶了

Lockdown 2.13

有人說很久沒吃過 pork pie
這是傳統英國食品
特別的 hot water crust 外皮
包著絞肉再注入肉凍去烤
夏天野餐經常會見到
冬天午餐加熱吃很棒

Someone said it’s been ages since they had pork pies
It’s a traditional English food
Crunchy hot water crust pastry
Filled with chopped pork and pork jelly stock
It’s often seen at summer picnics
And makes a great winter lunch eaten hot

Lockdown 2.14

偽情日節
跟網上認識的美國朋友玩交換禮物
其中一樣物品是Uno 遊戲牌
Lockdown 只有倆小口也可以玩

Fake valentines day
Did a gift exchange with an American friend i met online
One of the items is a set of Uno cards
Perfect for the two of us during lockdown
