It has been a challenging year for Malaysians as we continue to stay safe and persevere through the pandemic. If you're currently staying home during the movement control order, you might be itching to find activities or new hobbies to pull you through. To pass your time, we're going to share some things to do during a lockdown in Malaysia!

1. Learn how to cook halal Korean and Japanese food

It has been more than a year since we last travelled to Japan and Korea. What better way to reminisce your favourite travel moments by cooking easy halal Japanese recipes and simple halal Korean recipes at home?

2. Enjoy a relaxing spa session at home

We miss our weekend trips to the best spas in Kuala Lumpur. Now that we're pausing our aromatherapy body massage appointments, it's time to recreate the spa experience at home! It's a great self-care practice and all you need to do is light up some aromatherapy candles, put on a sheet mask, and listen to some calm music. To start, we show you some easy ways to have a spa session at home.

3. Support local businesses near you

While everyone is staying home, your friendly local businesses are still up and running - waiting to serve some delicious meals to you. If you're craving for ikan patin tempoyak, ayam berempah or nasi kukus, treat your family to these halal set meals in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor! There's no better time to support the local businesses near you.

4. Pick up a gardening hobby

You don't need a massive space to kick start a gardening hobby, and it's a pastime that you can easily pick up if you're looking for things to do during lockdown in Malaysia. Make the most of your balcony and corridor space to plant hydroponic vegetables, herbs, or tiny cacti! You can find so much joy from caring for a bonsai too.

5. Spring clean your home

Now that you're spending most of your time at home, it's time to start spring cleaning again! You can sort out old clothes to donate, set aside the books you're no longer reading or clean your bedroom.

6. Stay fit with indoor workout

If you're a fitness junkie who is staying home during a lockdown in Malaysia, we know how it feels not to breathe in the fresh air or stretching your legs with a morning run. As much as you're missing the gym and parks, there are many easy ways for you to keep fit and healthy even when you're indoors. From indoor workouts to dance parties, you can do it in the comfort of your home!

Last but not least, thank you for doing your part in keeping Malaysia safe by staying home and limiting your trip outdoors! Times are tough right now but as long as we stand together, we can overcome the trying times of the pandemic in Malaysia.
