Day 5 of Movement Control Order

After 5 days of being locked up in the house, me and my wife are quite bored. Lucky us we have to pack out hour to shift to our new place and this MCO period seems to be the best time for us to do so…

I personally was hoping to use the services of a moving company to do all the packing but alas, with the current situation, we have been deprived of that option. But we are glad to follow the Movement Control Order to allow our nation to cope with the Covid-19 Threat. I sincerely hope that everyone in the country would stop risking themselves and other for the sake of their own agenda.

To enforce this prohibition, all houses of worship and business premises should be closed, except for supermarkets, public markets, grocery stores and convenience stores selling everyday necessities.
