Finally Home Thanks to "Gerak Malaysia" Application

Finally Home Thanks to "Gerak Malaysia" Application | After a while of being away from home and stuck in Kuala Lumpur due to Covid-19, my mental health was quite a mess even though I thought I was fine. Thanks to a lot of people, I managed to pull through. 

Sorry for not replying and being absent. I can finally see my family and decided to take a few days off from social media. And I can also see my fur babies. 

I'm not gonna say that I'm unlucky but as soon as I got back to Kuala Lumpur, the MCO was enforced and I wasn't able to drive back home. From two weeks (first phase), it is now already day 56 (as I was writing this). Just yesterday, the PM announced it will be extended until 9th June. 

And then Ramadan came. Alhamdulillah. I spent half of the Ramadan month alone. Unlike years before, even though I'm away from my family I still have my friends near me. It was challenging but fun at the same time. 

Have you guys downloaded and tried the Gerak Malaysia application?

At first, I was rather skeptical but end up downloading it anyway. IOS version updates were rather late than android but waiting for it was worth it. As soon as it was updated I applied for interstate travel. The application was approved on the spot after updating the latest 2.5 version.

Some people thought Gerak Malaysia apps are only for interstate travel but the truth is, it's more than that. There are 5 categories included in the apps. The government is trying to ensure that everything can go well and smoothly went it comes to people traveling outside of their homes. For me, it is better to download the apps just in case and to avoid any unnecessary incidents. 
  1. To go out and for grocery shopping and necessities
  2. Medical purposes
  3. Emergency 
  4. Important activities
  5. Interstate travel



You can see how fast they approved my interstate travel application. A job well done by the government for helping people like me. Although the Ios updated a little bit later than the Android, the wait was worth it. I'm glad I waited.

Not yet ready, I rush my way out and packed all that I can before I traveled home. 

p/s: I've already packed most of my things beforehand. All that's left was my luggage. 

The traffic was super clear that I managed to get home a bit sooner than I expected. Thankfully I have a bottle of milk for breakfasting. Because as soon as it was time, I was still in the car on my way home. 

None of my family know that I was heading home except for someone(you know who you are). Thank you for making my plan successful as they were surprised and excited at the same time.   

I'm planning something for you guys. Stay tuned okay.

  4. What's something? Is it kad raya? Hehe. I always thought where are you or are you alright but I don't want to ask because it may hurt you.
    I'm glad you finally went safe to your home. I used to feel the same, I thought I was alright alone in Ramadan and raya without my parents. Turn out not.

    1. That is so kind of you for thinking like that. Thank you so much. Alhamdulillah I am doing good. Been getting a lot of moral support from beautiful people. It was really hard being away considering the pandemic that is happening around us. The feeling is just different, not that I'm not used to it. It just changes everything.

      I hope you're doing fine too.

  25. But nowadays tak boleh guna dah this app dont know why. Probably they want to control the number of people who travel interstate. But alhamdulillah you'd safely arrived. Glad to know that!

    1. Yeah I think that is true. The government are not allowing interstate travel at the moment after that 4 days have passed. Alhamdulillah. Syukur. I really am thankful.
