More than 50 Malaysians got to wave and see their families in Singapore at the closest distance possible from a yacht yesterday (24 October 2020).
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, travelling across borders is being put on halt. Many Malaysians and their family members working or staying in Singapore have been apart for the past several months.
R&F Princess Cove from Johor, Malaysia organised this event where Malaysians get to reunite with their loved ones from a yacht. This thoughtful event brought 20 families together at the nearest distance.
Family members on the yacht and at the Woodlands Waterfront Park held up banners and signs with words like “I love you” and “We Miss You” written to express love and affection for their families.
Finally able to see their family members after more than 200 days, some are seen tearing up and some are yelling “I love you, my wife” and “Thank you” to their families.
According to 8World News, Malaysians in Singapore, including a frontline worker are grateful for this opportunity to finally meet their wives and children.
Hopefully the Covid-19 pandemic can be over soon and lovebirds or family members can eventually reunite.
