I’ve grown accustomed to shopping online nowadays because I can compare prices on a few platforms before I buy them. Hey, I’m not being stingy! I just want to be a smart consumer and squeeze the most out of my money. After all, there’s no reason to pay more for the same thing. Don’t you agree? Plus, my schedule has been quite crazy lately so I don’t have that much time to go to physical stores. Living in a multiracial and multicultural country, we all celebrate the holidays and festivities together. Raya is around the corner so I guess we should all shop together too? Nobody would say no to shopping and sale! I’ve done the homework for you and surveyed all 3 most popular e-commerce platforms (Shopee, Zalora, Lazada) on what are the top 5 things to buy before Raya.
Top 5 Things to Buy Before Raya
Now, now, don’t think that only Malay will eat kurma ya. In fact, I have several Chinese friends who also love eating kurma. Talk about multicultural! I saw that Lazada is currently running their “Raikan Ramadan Salam Al-Mubarak” campaign and thanks to this, you can get your Ramadan kurma supply for as low as RM 5.50! From Kurma Madinah, Kurma Khenaizi, Kurma Safia to Kurma Khalas and many more, you can get them all at Lazada. That’s what I call convenient! If you have any doubts, just ask the seller and wait for them to reply you.
Any festivity will not be complete without festive cookies and I’m sure you’re nodding now! It’s quite crowded at the supermarkets during this time and trust me, you don’t wanna waste your time queuing to pay for your items. Why not buy your own baking supplies online at Lazada and bake your favorite cookies with love at home? If you’re feeling ambitious, you can also sell them online and make some pocket money.
P/S: Please send me some if you’re going to bake festive cookies ya!
Money packets (Sampul Duit Raya)
If you’re married, you can’t run away from giving duit raya (blessing money) to those who are still single. I came across some really cute money packet designs and I’m sure the kids will be thrilled to receive them. They have cartoon characters like Hello Kitty, Ultraman, Boboiboy and many more. Check out the Sampul Duit Raya here.
Raya means it’s time to get the house sparkling clean. The merchants know this too and that’s why this is the time they usually have promotions on house cleaning products and appliances. I’ve been wanting to get a wireless handheld vacuum cleaner lately because I find it a hassle to push the conventional type around. The wire always got caught up on the sofa’s leg no matter how careful I am.
The last item in this list is the most important for Raya. How can we forget our Baju Raya? We need to look our best when we visit our friends and family! I’ve just found some stunning outfits from ZALORAYA 2019 collection and they’re pretty affordable. Going for some bright colors because festivities are supposed to be bright and cheerful! Check out this set of Baju Kurung by Lubna which I found from Zalora: Lace Wide Sleeves Kurung by Lubna Lace Wide Sleeves Kurung by Lubna
