DUBAI: People across the world are staying at home in a bid to contain the spread of COVID-19. We catch up with our favorite stars who answer a quickfire round of questions about their time in self-isolation.
Saudi TV presenter and influencer Eleen Suliman is trying to stay patient during self-isolation. The style star is being productive at home and is spending more time with her family.
How has self-isolation been for you so far?
I’ve been at home. We are all bored and we can’t take it anymore, but we all hope that this crisis passes by soon without losing anyone.
What’s the biggest challenge?
My biggest challenge is to be patient. I am worried about the practices that we are now getting used to, like staying home all the time, being scared to greet people and so on. So, I am scared that after this crisis, we would actually be this way with people.
What is something positive that has happened due to self-isolation in your life?
To be honest, a while ago I said I don’t want to travel, I want to spend time with my family, I want to develop myself to become a better person and this actually happened. So, I say, it is the best period to use this time right.
What are you currently watching?
To be honest, I only watch “Money Heist” and the rest of my time I spend attending online courses and reading books.
Are you trying anything new in the kitchen or around the home?
I eat everything and everyday I go to the kitchen and learn something new. I learned how to cook shawarma, I learned how to cook spaghetti and chicken with rice. I learned a lot.
How are you keeping sane as you stay home?
I do mediation and yoga. Those are the two most important things we have to do during self-isolation, especially that we are all at home and we are trying to avoid any problem that could happen.
How are you staying “social”?
I use Zoom or video calls on Snapchat or WhatsApp. I catch up with my girls and check up on them.
Any tips for bored readers?
I recommend the books “Ask and it is Given,” “The Secret” and “Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus.”
In self-isolation, are you relaxed or do you feel the need to be extra productive?
I am staying productive and I am learning new things because I am a very moody person and I get bored easily. So, I always like to change my routine.
Are you living in your PJS, or taking the time to get dressed up?
Both, I like to dress up and also wear my pajamas.
