After being separated for months, more than 50 Malaysians got to reunite and see their families in Singapore at the closest distance possible… from a yacht at the JB-SG causeway. Okay, so no warm embraces, but it’s a pandemic, y’all!
Since travelling across borders is still halted due to the Covid-19 pandemic, many Malaysians and their family members who are working or staying in Singapore have been apart since early this year.
R&F Princess Cove from Johor organised this thoughtful event where loved ones can reunite again from a yacht, which successfully brought 20 families together.
You can see family members on the yacht at Woodlands Waterfront Park holding up signs and banners saying “I love you” and “We miss you”.
After being separated for more than seven months, you could see tears flowing and hear some yelling “I love you, my wife” and “Thank you” to their families from the distance.
Even though they couldn’t talk to each other at that distance from the yacht, many families are grateful to have the chance of seeing their loved ones right in front of their eyes.
We can only imagine how it must feel to miss someone that much. We hope they will get to reunite properly soon, once this is all over.
