I have a confession to make: Ever since Singapore went into DORSCON Orange, I haven’t seen my colleagues physically in three weeks. Like a lot of Singapore’s workforce, we’ve been employing split-team operations, and I’ve been part of the lucky few who’s had the opportunity to work from home. So, yay me.
This means that team meetings have been conducted via video conferencing over Google Hangouts. We’re a pretty close-knit team, and since most of us were doing our work in the comfort of our own homes, for our very first video call in, everyone “showed up” in their worst pyjamas, yours truly included. And it was not a pretty sight. Since then we have learnt to turn the camera off and have agreed to stick to voice calls instead to preserve everyone’s dignity.
But I’m just going to declare this proudly—pyjamas are the best thing to wear to do your work in. They’re loose and usually made of thin materials, which means you’re the most comfortable you can be. In fact, my productivity levels have gone through the roof just because I no longer have to deal with the pressure of dressing for the office.
So, if you’ve had the opportunity to work from home, here are a couple of stylish and comfy pyjamas worth investing in. And the best thing about them? They’re still presentable even if you have to show your face for a last-minute video call.
