Unusual Norm of Festival Celebration




National day/ Malaysia day is just around the corner, but we might miss the celebration part that used to be warm and crowded. We have adapted to a new norm of festival celebration: staying at home, will be the greatest gift from citizen to our beloved Malaysia

Some people would blame COVID. Yeah, it should be blamed by turning over the norm of human life over the past two years.


My fear raised when I heard about few cases of hawker sellers that I used to go and dapao, got infected by COVID-19. My heart sank as the cases is getting more closer to us than ever. Even though I have fully vaccinated (not long time ago), and I am always in full protection whenever I'm exposed to public places, we are still prone to this deadly virus. I don't wish to bring the disease back home and victimise my family. That's horrible.

We are currently surrounded by the negativity that you can't see the end of it. Why don't we try to make it a bit positive during the festive event? It reminds us to work hand in hand through the hardship and hard time, as fast as possible.


We will make the first move about spreading the positivity, by contributing part of the profit that we made through online sales to Pandemic Fund initiates by Mercy Malaysia.

There are much more than the mentioned effort done by Mercy Malaysia and they still need more help from us.
