However, Hari Raya of this year was so different with the previous years due to the pandemic of Covid-19 and these Malaysians decided to change their way for celebration by having picnic in front of their front gate.

Under the conditional movement control order (CMCO), Malaysians are forbidden to have house-to-house visiting and also gatherings for over 20 people during Hari Raya.

The video which went viral on social media recently, shows that there were some families in a residential neighbourhood in Negeri Sembilan, found out their own way to celebrate the big day together while practicing social distancing.

▼ As we can see in the video, there were about 20 families sat along the road which is in front of their homes. They put a mat outside their homes and sat together with their family members for having their meals.
