In the post posted on its official Facebook page, the Sabah NSC illustrated the basic health checks that travellers will be required to go through using Sabahan slang and local humour.

The Sabah National Security Council (NSC) has won the praises of many netizens with a humorous social media post on travel requirements to the state during the recovery movement control order (MCO).

In the statement posted yesterday on its official Facebook page (Majlis Keselamatan Negara Negeri Sabah), the Sabah NSC illustrated the basic health checks that travellers to the state will be required to go through using Sabahan slang and local humour.

The post on Facebook has since gone viral with over 12,000 shares and 5,000 comments at press time.

The Sabah NSC illustrated several scenarios that a person called "Rembo" would face if he is travelling from Kuala Lumpur to Sabah.

These include filling up health declaration forms and other necessary procedures upon arrival at the Kota Kinabalu International Airport (as well as the Tawau and Sandakan airports).

Sabah NSC also prepared a list of FAQs (frequently asked questions) for easier reference. One of the questions is whether the test is free or would require payment from passengers.

The Sabah NSC said: “Ndak payah bayar yang penting ikhlas beri kerjasama dan kalau disoal jawab jangan pura-pura babau” (There’s no need for payment, what’s important is you give your full cooperation and if you are asked questions, don’t pretend to be mute").

In another scenario, Rembo is denied entry by his sister because he forgot to bring souvenirs from KL.

There is also a scenario that involves his ex-girlfriend from the Philippines, who would like to visit him in Sabah.

Facebook user Hasnul Hayat commented that he had a great time reading the post.

“I thoroughly enjoyed reading this,” he said, adding that flight tickets to Sabah are very expensive now.

Another user Siti Nurmyati Hasanuddin said the post was very informative.

“Thank you for the explanation. Now I can go back to see my mother, siblings and other family members, ” she said.
