ONE WORLD

Marie Claire (Malaysia) - - Chief Notes - Azza Arif ED­I­TOR az­zaarif@bluinc.com.my @az­zaar­ifk

For the past cou­ple of months, like so many of you, I have been ad­just­ing to the changes to my daily life dur­ing the COVID-19 pan­demic from the com­fort of my home— brain­storm­ing ideas with my col­leagues through Zoom meet­ings, chat­ting vir­tu­ally with my loved ones, and find­ing es­capism through Net­flix and a hand­ful of my favourite nov­els. And whilst we all are safely con­fined in our homes, the real-life he­roes are out there, do­ing their best to keep us safe and flat­ten the curve. These are our front­lin­ers—the health work­ers, po­lice of­fi­cers, the mil­i­tary and emer­gency-re­sponse per­son­nel, gro­cery store em­ploy­ees, the de­liv­ery men and women, and others whose es­sen­tial jobs we de­pend on. And we too, must to do our part to pro­tect those who are most vul­ner­a­ble to it. Stay at home, cook some­thing fun, spend time with your fam­ily, and above all, prac­tise so­cial dis­tanc­ing—just like our cover star, mu­sic roy­alty, Yuna.

In our special is­sue, Yuna in­vites us into her per­sonal space, her abode of peace, her home, in this exclusive cover story, taken through the lens of her hus­band, Adam Sin­clair. Dur­ing the MCO (Move­ment Con­trol Or­der), she spent her time work­ing on her mu­sic, teach­ing mini classes (read more about it in our cover story), con­nect­ing with her fans, and above all, spend­ing qual­ity time with her fam­ily. And that is ex­actly what we urge you all to do—stay at home and enjoy some qual­ity time, what ever that may be. Try our some of our fash­ion, beauty and life­style hacks from this is­sue, and take time to look into your phys­i­cal, emo­tional and men­tal health. We are all in this to­gether—one world.
