Today is the first day of Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO), although state government allows certain sectors to resume operations. But, I’m sure you would’ve either experienced or seen by now that many people are losing their jobs, some even have to take a major pay cut or unpaid leave and government aids are not helping much, especially for those supporting a big family.

Finance Minister Tengku Datuk Seri Zafrul Tengku Abdul Aziz said “Malaysia is weathering its worst economic recession in its history just as other developed nations are facing deep downturns due to the Covid-19 pandemic and Movement Control Order (MCO),” according to his recent interview in TV3.

Please save some money for the rainy days, cause we don’t see the economy picking up any time soon. For those who resume work, please maintain self-hygiene and embrace a safe distancing! # Staysafe
