The pandemic has been a pain for many, especially for those who have had to live apart from their family for a long time.

This is the case for 26-year-old Malaysian frontliner Tracy Jantom, who has been working as a nurse in Singapore.

In a TikTok video that has gone viral, Tracy documented her journey as she returned to her hometown in Miri, Sarawak from Singapore after not having gone home for two whole years.

It was definitely a very emotional one as we cried while watching it. In just three days, the video had amassed a total of 1.1 million views, more than 150,000 likes and 4,000 comments.Msian Nurse In Singapore Reunites With Family After 2 Years 3

 

The video starts off with Tracy leaving her apartment in Singapore and boarding a plane back to Malaysia. During that flight, she was offered a muffin and as she was eating, she became overcome with emotions as she was still in disbelief over the fact that she was finally returning home to her family.

Tracy writes in the video, “Just cannot believe I am finally going back home after everything I’ve been through.”

“Handling the pandemic as a frontliner was not easy.”

Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Tracy explained that she had moved to Singapore to pursue her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing part-time whilst also working full time in a local hospital. As the pandemic struck and borders closed, she was not able to see her family for two years.

As her plane finally touched down on Malaysian soil, Tracy was especially touched when the pilot said the iconic words, “… and to all Malaysians, welcome home.”

However that was not the final step as Tracy had to take a connecting flight to Miri. As she finally arrived, she said that she was only able to meet her family members from a distance as she needed to quarantine for seven days.

Tracy told us that as of today (5 Nov) she is currently on her fifth day of quarantine and she is counting the days till she is able to physically reunite with her family.

When asked on what will be the first thing she will do after being released from quarantine Tracy says, “I would like to hug my mother first.”

“After that I will eat all the Sarawakian delicacies that I’ve been craving for two years.”

Tracy will only be back home for a month, before she will eventually have to return back to Singapore. We hope that during this time, Tracy will be able to eat all of the food she has been craving and spend lots of precious time with her family to make wonderful memories!
