20 Malaysian Families On Board Yacht Tearfully Greets Loved Ones Far Over At Woodlands Park
These families in Singapore and Malaysia have been separated for around 200 days now.
Malaysian families wave at their loved ones as they get a chance to get closer to them over a body of water.
Due to boarder closures brought upon by COVID-19 restrictions, families in Singapore and Malaysia have been separated for around 200 days now.
20 families were then given a chance by R&F Princess Cove, a property developer in Johor Baru, to have a little reunion with their loved ones by getting them to board a yacht which later took them near the Singapore shores.
As this was the ‘closest distance’ they could get to their families, people on board tearfully wave to their family members gathered all the way over at Woodlands Waterfront Park.
Banners filled with heartfelt ‘We miss you’ and ‘Love you’ were raised as the families cherish their moment of finally seeing their loved ones despite the distance. People on board were even given binoculars to spot their family members clearly.

The family members standing by the park were also seen carrying banners expressing how much they miss those on board.
Some even brought out their phones to record the event.
Hopefully the current situation gets better soon so the people could finally see their loved ones in person.
