As law-abiding Malaysians, we have lived under MCO (Movement Control Order) conditions for the
past eight (8) weeks,
starting from March 18, 2020. The Malaysian Government activated the Conditional Movement
Control Order (CMCO) on May 4,
allowing more economic sectors to resume operation, except for activities that involve large
crowds, close contact,
risks of infection and / or confined in a small space. These include sporting activities as well
as social, community
and cultural events. Interstate travel is also presently not allowed.
On May 10, Malaysia’s Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin announced that the Conditional
Movement Control Order
(CMCO) will be extended for another four (4) weeks, to June 9, 2020. The extension of the CMCO
means that all the rules
and standard operating procedures (SOP) during the CMCO (May 4 - 12) continue to be enforced
till June 9.
The Conditional Movement Control Order (CMCO) is a relaxation of regulations pertaining to the
MCO, with the key
objective of reopening the national economy in a controlled manner. This means that events
published on this site that
are scheduled for this period or even after the conditional movement restriction will be
postponed or cancelled. Kindly
check with the respective organisers of the events to confirm the updated event status.
Meanwhile, there are several events that are being carried out online. Our site has listed out
the online events, which
you could enjoy in the comfort of your home. The ultimate aim of the MCO and CMCO is to break
the chain of Covid-19
infection. So, let’s comply with the CMCO and help to curb the Covid-9 outbreak.
Palm Sunday is the last Sunday of Lent and the Sunday before Easter. It is the beginning of the Holy Week and commemorates the joyful arrival of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem, as Saviour and King.
Palm Sunday is the last Sunday of Lent and the Sunday before Easter. It is the beginning of the Holy Week and commemorates the joyful arrival of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem, as Saviour and King. The final Sunday before Lent is called Palm Sunday because it is when the faithful receive palm fronds which they use to participate in the re-enactment of Christ’s arrival in Jerusalem. Palm branches are recognised as a symbol of peace and victory, hence the day is called Palm Sunday.
Christ rode a donkey into Jerusalem and was greeted by a large crowd who laid palm branches and their cloaks across the road as a sign of homage. A donkey was used instead of a horse as it represents the humble arrival of Christ in peace. Christ rose from the dead a week later on Easter.
