Although the recovery movement control order (MCO) grants Malaysians more freedom to go about their everyday lives, singer and television host Nina Nadira is still choosing to stay at home whenever possible.
Nina, 27, said that she tries to minimise time spent in public for the safety of her one-year-old.
“I don’t leave the house unless I have to for work. I don’t even meet up with my friends anymore, because I’m paranoid for my baby. Maybe I’ve just gotten used to staying at home so I’m overthinking things,” she told mStar, The Star's Malay portal.
The MPop! host said that she enjoys being able to spend more time with her daughter now that she has settled into the routine of working from home.
Nina is also optimistic about her career: “Since the Covid-19 pandemic started, a lot of television programmes were affected. However, a positive side effect is getting to try new things – for example, I was asked to do an online performance for someone’s wedding!
“I also received an offer to do theatre work, but I declined because I don’t think I can commit fully. Right now, my priority is maintaining a work-life balance. That means making time for my family,” she added.
