Do You Have FOMO During CMCO?! #TerkiniWithNandini

“Monkey see, monkey follow”




Since the Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) was implemented Malaysians have been feeling a little FOMO, for those of you who aren’t familiar with the term, it simple means fear of missing out. Are you experiencing FOMO during CMCO?!

In this episode of #TerkiniwithNandini Fly’s AM Mayhem and Nandini discuss do you have FOMO During CMCO due to the many Malysians who are crowding restaurants since CMCO.

Nandini and Fly’s AM Mayhem feel that its typical Malaysian behavior and they are simply following directives from authorities.

” The idea that Malaysians decide to go to the mamak the moment they can keluar is so Malaysian! Its normal for them, thats what we do when things are okay, so I wouldn’t say its a fear of missing out, its more like people are just following the directives. Most people have been really good with the rules and stuff so I’m assuming these are the people that have been staying at home for a really long time. So the rules and regulations have changed, somewhat in the past week and I remember very clearly when i heard the speech from our prime minster last Friday, on like going out and stuff and he dd stress that please don’t go out unless you really have to but at the same time you can also dine out now!

So I was like huh if the prime minster himself and the law and the rules and regulations itself say that you an dine out the obviously people are going to be like oh can go out lah then!” – Nandini

But do think people have the notion that since MCO has been lifted to CMCO, that COVID-19 is gone to?

“I think that everyone has this wishful thinking that COVID-19 is completely done and dusted just because MCO has been lifted. Just because MCO has been lifted doesn’t mean that COVID-19 is gonna go away as well. So people don’t practice social distancing at the supermarket. Now the way they design this grocery store right is the vegetables are at the entrance, the baking product is all the way at the end. So I was at the back I already had a whole cart, this aunty rubs shoulders against me trying to get something that i was looking, I looked at her and said ‘excuse me, social distancing’, then she started scolding me, and she was loud! And she was like ‘why I need to tell you, MCO is done, that means COVID-19 is over!”- RD

Despite the the implementation of CMCO it does not mean that social distancing should not still be practiced!

” Nandini you said you don’t think this is the situation where its FOMO right, when it comes to Malaysians lining up at the mamak, I think I agree with you! on that, I think it’s ignorance. Because when we’re out and about now right with the whole CMCO you see people lining up at the stores, other people will also line up because they’ll think that its okay to do so. They will always follow the mass. People are just being super ignorant about the whole situation.” – Guibo
