Assimilating the daily routine of our city's circuit breaker might have required a few sacrifices, but in time, they all seemed attainable. Or at least that's what we assumed, until news broke of McDonald's shuttering all of their outlets until 4 May. That earth-shattering decision did set us a few (hundred) steps back from the progress we made in this #stayhome fix.

For the first time since we've known, our beloved 24/7-rain-or-shine fast food chain isn't in operations. No late-night door calls when the munchies hit or waiting in line just to get a McFlurry. The unprecedented situation might be temporal but it's a reality that's hard to grapple with, even with a bigger problem named COVID-19 at hand.

Of course for some maddening reason, the cravings of a 330-calorie loaded burger seem more fervent as before. It's the classic cliche of not knowing what you've got until it's gone. So to tide you over till 4 May, multifaceted eatery Telok Ayer Arts Club's sous chef, Saz (with over 30 years of culinary experience clocked in Sydney as well as a slew of popular bistros in Singapore) presents his rendition of McD recipes. The first, being the legendary breakfast special — Sausage Egg McMuffin. Here's a picture below, in case you forgot how it looked like.
