KL East Mall Raya & CSR Campaign Launch

KL EAST MALL EMBRACES THE MONTH OF RAMADAN WITH A CAMPAIGN DEDICATED TO CHILDREN WITH AUTISM

The holy month of Ramadan speaks of self-reflection, quality family time and doing good for the communityEmbracing these sentiments, Sime Darby Property's KL East Mall, is supporting Yayasan Pendidikan Insani through its first Hari Raya Aidilfitri campaign.

 

INSANI is a not-for-profit organisation that provides early intervention care, therapy, and education for 50 children with autism from low-income families.

 

KL East Mall kicks tarted its Indahnya Syawal Kemeriahan Dirai campaign to raise a minimum of RM50,000 for the children and families under the foundation. From now until 16 May, shoppers can support the cause by donating a minimum of RM10 and get the chance to colour a piece of a puzzle from a large artwork for the organisation. Shoppers can also contribute a minimum of RM35 and receive an exclusive tote bag designed by Malaysian fashion brand Fiziwoo in collaboration with renowned chef Datuk Redzuawan Ismail, better known as Chef Wan.

 

Habib, which officially opened its store in KL East Mall, also pledged to contribute 100%  proceeds from the sales of 300 pieces limited edition pure gold wafers worth RM118 each to INSANI.

 

Taking opportunity of the launch of the KL East Mall’s Corporate Social Responsibility, Datuk Chef Wan and Fiziwoo also made their donations to INSANI as a kick-start to the charity initiative.

 

Sime Darby Property Group Managing Director, Dato’ Azmir Merican said, “The National Autism Society of Malaysia (NASOM) reports approximately 9,000 children are born with autism every year in Malaysia. That number is considerably high, and yet the awareness on the disorder remains low. Autism is one of the fastest growing disorders and must be addressed on a wider platform.

 

“Awareness on autism can be increased simply by talking about it. As a responsible property developer, Sime Darby Property does its part by actively organising initiatives in relation to the cause. We are proud to present this campaign which puts the spotlight on the community that has long been sidelined.”

Pasar Malam Scene after MCO

 

Can I have a show of hands for those who love Pasar Malams? Who doesn't love Pasar Malams. Gosh! I miss my Pasar Malams full of activities, hustle and bustle and lots of people. Kinda meriah don't you think so? But hanging out at Pasar Malams after MCO is never the same again. The crowds these days are lesser and stalls are also lesser too! Business owners will say aiyooooo business tak bagus these days. Who can blame them? Ramai yang shy away from crowded places after the Covid 19 scare which lasted for more than a year. Our lives will definitely be impacted and never the same again. Some are even too paranoid to go out or hang around places with too many people. It's all about social distancing these days!

A seller managing his quiet stall at the Chow Yang Pasar Malam on Thursday nights.

Street food is probably the best during Pasar Malam visits. On and off I do see some really creative street food. Most probably inspired by Taiwan snacks. But not all are nice. One of my favourite is the Taiwan sausage. My favourite Pasar Malam is usually the one in SS2 (near MCDONALDS SS2). These days I heard the Pasar Malam in SS2 buka 2 hari. Mondays and Tuesdays and so they split the number of vendors to not overcrowd one day, which I find it a good thing too since it's all spread out. Buying food in Pasar Malam ain't cheap. You tend to buy until syiok syiok without realizing the damage to your pocket. Especially when you shop for food when you're extremely hungry. You will tend to buy more!

So how long have you not been to a Pasar Malam? Tell me.
