A Malaysian female nurse went viral recently after she uploaded a video documenting her emotional journey back to her hometown in Sarawak. That being said, it appears that some people out there aren’t very pleased with her return, and decided to publicly put the lady on blast.
The woman, known as Tracy (@trcyjntm), is a Malaysian citizen working in Singapore as a nurse. According to her, it’s been two years since she could not return home and was stranded in the country. In the video, the woman was also seen having difficulty holding back her tears while on the plane.

“Initially wanted to take a video of me eating the muffin that they gave me, but I ended up getting emotional,” Tracy revealed in her post. “Thinking about how much I struggled for two whole years alone, without my family around. Handling the pandemic as a frontliner was not easy. Just cannot believe I’m really going back home after everything I’ve been through.”
The video has in turned caught the attention of many people, particularly Malaysians and not to mention Singaporeans. Most of them welcomed her back home and thanked her for the sacrifices she made throughout the pandemic. Others also expressed their gratitude to fellow Malaysians for fulfilling their responsibilities to get themselves vaccinated and allowing those like her to return home.
Here are some of the comments shared by local netizens:
That being said, Tracy also ended up receiving some hateful comments from a few Singaporean keyboard warriors. As seen in the receipts provided by the Twitter user herself, some of them mocked her for working in their country. Others also claimed that she only worked there for money.
“The reason why I always use my Malaysian sim card is because I don’t want my TikTok audiences to be from (the) SG region. because most of them would always say these type of shit to me,” Tracy commented on her post.
