Speaking

When they leave to SH, I remember it was February 1st. The returning time was February 8th from Sri Lanka. The coronavirus was broken at that time. We heard many flights were cancelled from other places to the Mainland. Luckily, the company, Cathay changed their flight so they managed to come back. They actually took the flight 2 hours early. My husband also found that there’s less customers on the flight.

This was the first time only two guys share a trip together. No mummy with them. So the luggage is very simple. I think Sri Lanka’s weather is very hot so there was no need for them to take clothes to buy things. During that period, when I was in SH, when we need to go to public places, we need to wear face masks. After they came back to SH, we found out that there was only one person founded positive in SL. The temperature is very high, they can swim and go to the national park. They booked a jeep and they could see a lot of tigers. They also enjoyed the food there, it’s also very cheap. The people over there are also very nice and they can speak a bit of English with an accent.

Our plan B is if the flight from HK – SH is cancelled, we were planning to buy a ticket from SL – SH. Although we would have to pay a lot. Another thing is they could eat a lot on the flight.
