Wu Chun Goes All Out To Stay Safe On Flight To China; Video Calls Daughter During COVID-19 Swab Test
After spending most of the year in his hometown in Brunei due to the lack of business trips amidst the pandemic, Wu Chun finally travelled to China yesterday (Oct 15) for work. He is scheduled to participate in a charity run early next month but flew over weeks in advance to undergo self-isolation.
While it is undoubtedly a good opportunity for him to, um, “earn real money” (as one Hongkong media outlet snarkily put it), the 41-year-old and his family were understandably reluctant to part after spending so much time together.
According to his Weibo post, Wu Chun’s two kids, 10-year-old daughter Neinei and seven-year-old son Max, were also very worried about their dear papa’s health. “They kept asking what would happen if I caught the virus,” he wrote. “Would it mean they wouldn’t be able to see me for even longer?” Awww…
To reassure them, he said, “Daddy still has important responsibilities. I will definitely do my best to protect myself. Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today!”
He really wasn’t kidding about protecting himself. Wu Chun shared several photos of himself in his ‘airport fashion’, and it is pretty intense to say the least. In addition to wearing a mask, goggles, and face shield, he also donned a hazmat suit. Guess one can really never be too careful during this period.
And the best part is, all the other passengers on his flight were dressed exactly the same, as seen from Wu Chun’s selfie on the plane (see below). It totally looks like something out of a post-apocalyptic sci-fi film, but then again, we are living in unusual times right now.
Upon his arrival, Wu Chun had to get a COVID-19 swab test, which Neinei insisted on seeing for herself even though she was in the middle of her ballet class and was freaked out at the thought of it. To satisfy his daughter’s curiosity, Wu Chun FaceTimed her during the entire process, and then uploaded the clip on his Weibo for everyone else to see.
We reckon it’s not easy to take a selfie while getting a super long Q-tip stuck up your nose, so the video is a little shaky, but we see the tester inserting the swab into Wu Chun’s nostril, wiggling it around and pulling it out again, resulting in one very uncomfortable-looking former Fahrenheit member.
