It appears that many Malaysians made a mad dash to catch some much-needed R&R over the weekend, as lockdown restrictions relaxed across the country in lieu of the Covid-19 National Recovery Plan (NRP).

Aside from reports of traffic increasing in the nation’s capital, other parts of the country saw members of the public crowding local recreational sites and partaking in a range of leisurely activities.

Here in the Klang Valley, Phase 2 of the NRP have family and friends spending plenty of time outdoors.

In Kuala Lumpur, the city centre became alive with people having some fresh air by visiting urban parks and green areas.

Denizens were spotted gathering in places like KLCC as well as popular hangouts like Taman Tasik Titiwangsa.

People in Putrajaya were seen enjoying picnics together with their loved ones as well as getting some exercise while cycling around town or pedalling their kayaks in the area’s lakes.

In Shah Alam, a number of intrepid adventurers had enjoyed the sunny day zooming across the lake at the public zipline in Taman Tasik Shah Alam.

The weekend also saw folks in the Klang Valley rush to the ocean. Beaches in Selangor such as the one in Pantai Morib, Pantai Jeram, Pantai Remis and Pantai Bagan Lalang were reportedly filled with people making use of the inter-district travel permission to relax in the sun, sand and seas.

The sight of crowded beaches, however, did raise concerns among netizens.

Videos shared online also showed what many described to be a nightmarish situation of a traffic jam occurring in the middle of the jungle as members of the public allegedly crowd a recreational forest reserve in KL.

With Malaysia now moving into declaring the Covid-19 crisis as endemic instead of a pandemic by October 2021, let’s all try our best to abide by SOPs so that we don’t get stuck in another round of lockdowns.
