Satu peringatan….stay at home

PE­TAL­ING JAYA: A pub­lic ser­vice no­tice from a prom­i­nent be­reave­ment op­er­a­tor has gone vi­ral, with Malaysians shar­ing the no­tice for its hu­mour and stark mes­sage.
Nir­vana Asia on Thurs­day night posted on its Face­book page a poster bear­ing both Chi­nese and English words urg­ing Malaysians to stay at home dur­ing the MCO pe­riod.
“Stay at home or stay at Nir­vana,” it read, re­fer­ring to its graves and its colum­bar­ium.
Nir­vana Asia Group founder Tan Sri Kong Hon Kong said “the bor­der­line con­tro­ver­sial post” was re­leased to re­mind the peo­ple “as straight for­ward as pos­si­ble so that peo­ple would not ig­nore the se­ri­ous­ness of the is­sue”.
“With a lot of fake news around, we’re hop­ing the pub­lic will prob­a­bly find it eas­ier to ac­cept and share the mes­sage to their loved ones with a sense of hu­mour,” he said.
Kong also urged the gov­ern­ment to be strict in pe­nal­is­ing the vi­o­la­tors of the or­der.
“I have no­ticed the gov­ern­ment has been very tol­er­ant. I think the pub­lic would like to see more con­trol mea­sures to be ap­plied,” he said, adding that it was not just the gov­ern­ment’s duty to en­sure peo­ple stayed at home.
Stu­dent James Wong said the poster was a clever way of catch­ing the pub­lic’s at­ten­tion.
“It’s a pow­er­ful mes­sage and done in a way that peo­ple will ac­tu­ally share,” added the fi­nal-year mass com­mu­ni­ca­tion stu­dent.
Mean­while, art­work by dig­i­tal comic la­bel @ar­tor­toise was also widely shared on­line, with In­ter­net users laud­ing its pur­pose.
Bear­ing the hash­tag of #Ki­taJa­gaKita (we take care of us), the comic fea­tured 10 char­ac­ters of dif­fer­ent oc­cu­pa­tions stand­ing in a cir­cle sur­round­ing a house.
“With them sur­round­ing a house, it meant that peo­ple are safe with them, who fought for and de­fended the na­tion,” said Ikhlas Ise, the il­lus­tra­tor be­hind the Ar­tor­toise l
