Listen Now: No Filter: Vietnam Group Shares The Realities of Life in Quarantine
Most of us are stuck in quarantine, but some people are putting a filter on it.
With the world stuck at home, social media is full of the ways people are filling the time. And since most people only put their best face forward those posts are full of workouts or fancy cooking.
But a Facebook group out of Vietnam is painting a more realistic picture. Instead of golden loaves of bread or perfectly round cookies they are posting pictures of burnt dishes, inedible potatoes and undercooked brownies. The founder of the group says it’s important for people to have a place where they can share their failures and be comfortable with it.
Along with food there’s posting about failures to home school children and messy homes. Most of urban Vietnam just wrapped up a month of isolation and like everyone else, and day to day life looks a lot different. Group members say they are now cooking three meals a day, giving school lessons and trying to keep the house clean.
We’re all in the same boat, we might as well embrace it.
