    It's weird as fuck, that's for sure. Covid tests for fish, for dogs, for newborn babies. But no vaccine mandate? People dressed in surgical gowns to scan your temperature entering a building. Hazmat suits. Covid test pop up boxes all over the city. QR "healthcode" tyranny. It's so embarrassing.

    I'm pretty lucky: was never taken to a fangcang (the camps), didn't get covid and have to hide from the authorities (like some of my friends), had some food in the cupboard, made a point of trying to talk to someone every day. A friend of a friend had a breakdown during the Shanghai lockdown and is still in a psychiatric hospital. A lot of people who got covid got fired because their companies think they're too dangerous.

    32 days left here...

    Is that now just a saving face exercise of the government? They are usually not the types to sacrifice economic growth over peoples health.

    The economy is in tatters, so actually it's quite handy to have an excuse like this ("we did it for the health of the people, not like in the evil west where they let all the old people die"). On the plus side, the government has learnt that you need to give people food if you're going to lock them in their homes.

    Lots of cities in full lockdowns in China right now and it's very hard to leave your city even if you're not in a lockdown. In Shanghai we're still having covid tests (PCR tests) every 72 hours, and teachers/students have to have them every 24 hours. So there's one part of the economy that's booming...

    I promised myself a break from tattoos for a while but then I was at a fundraising bbq yesterday and there was a girl doing handpokes...
    No coverings or anything this time!

    I just wear my normal shoes and I have a shoe dryer machine thing to dry them out with when I get home.

    Never tried a pickled egg, never will

    My brother not only eats pickled eggs but drinks the liquid they come in, and even writing that down makes me feel nauseous.
