Jimat even more with ShopeePay when you order at KFC or Pizza Hut

 There was a time when salted egg fish skin was all the rage, and there was no stopping anyone from getting their hands on the addictive snack.

 

Now we get to try the crispy fried chicken skin from KFC (yasssss!) that was launched a few weeks ago! People have been talking about it and the Chicken Skin Snek Jimat Kombo, and the ASMR videos by fellow Malaysians did not make it any easier for our growling tummies.

 

If you have not tried it yet, don’t worry because it’s not too late!

 

Plus, here’s how you can jimat even more when you visit KFC. We got to know that there is a RM2 cashback with a minimum spend of RM5 when you pay with ShopeePay at KFC if you buy the KFC ShopeePay Voucher from the Deals Near Me portal.



When we were searching for KFC on Shopee, we also found very interesting deals from Pizza Hut. This is one place we used to hang out with our friends for birthday celebrations or visit with our parents for a nice makan-makan. Ahhh the good ol’ days.

 

Turns out, you can get RM3 off on Pizza Hut’s new Hand Crafted Crust Pizza. Take a break from all the cooking and treat yourself or the family to a nice, warm pizza and a movie. 




If you fancy other pizzas, there is also a RM3 cashback when you spend a minimum of RM6. Make sure to check which outlet nearest to you that is offering these deals!

 

Get these vouchers for only 1 sen at Shopee’s Deals Near Me portal, and enjoy the cashback when you pay with ShopeePay at the outlet. 

 

Remember to also read the terms and conditions before using it!

The Retail Bleeds

It was such a sad sight walking into a mall before my Jab yesterday. Here is a glimpse of the retail scene at Sunway Pyramid. Sad but true. These were taken during the EMCO period when all non essential shops were not allowed to operate. The retail scene is BLEEEEDDDDIIIIIINNNG!

All fashion, beauty, hair salons..etc were not allowed to open.

Only those in the F&B business were allowed to operate. Check out the standalone Inside Scoop kiosk where it's surrounded by emptiness of shops around it. Kasihan.

Before my jab, I manage to grab a kebab from my favourite Kebab store at Kebab King. They serve the best of the best kebabs in my opinion. Only 1 outlet is left. They used to have another outlet at One Utama but it was long gone. 



It's just so heartbreaking to see this scene with most shops not open.
Friends and relatives in some businesses cannot open for business and some yet still have to pay their staff and shop rentals. The situation makes it hard for businesses to survive. How long can they stay afloat? How many more businesses can survive this closure and for how long? Reserves are running low. What about those who need income to pay for their housing loans, car loans and other commitments. Without income how do they survive?

It's a real fact that entrepreneurs are bleeding all the way and dying a slow death with extensions after extensions and are not allowed to open for business. 
When only can we be free again?



The Future is here

Ok! ok! So I look like some sort of futuristic space chick!

I bought this face shield for double protection but ended up doing a space chick OOTD and had some fun playing dress up looking like an astronaut. Hah!

Some friends asked where I bought this. We;; here you go girls. I bought it here! 

>>Plain faceshield : https://shp.ee/scefpfd

It's RM6 only! Looks kinda cool eh? I feel like a million bucks!


And then later, I thought the purplish and blueish one looks kinda cool too and I ended up buying it too! You can buy yours here. I bought it for around RM10.

>> Purple Gradient : https://shp.ee/765pddv


I wore a mask under the face shield before going for my Jab.
It's better to take precautions as the cases are sky high at 13K.
Stay safe guys and stay protected. 
Take care!

Explore the Taste of Australian Beef

Thank you Meat and Livestock Australia for graciously sending over this media kit and lunch pack over the weekend.


I truly enjoyed the Grilled Australian Black Angus Striploin Steak

Eating lean red meat three to four times a week is recommended by nutritionists for a healthy balanced diet. Australian beef, promoted using the True Aussie Beef branding & logo in international markets, fits the bill completely and deliciously. It’s easy and convenient to buy and cook and there’s no better time than now for a beef-up experience.

Beef has many nutritional benefits and is an essential part of a healthy diet for the family, especially for children. Red meat is a great source of protein, iron, zinc and other essential nutrients.

Australian beef -- grass-fed, grain-fed, organic and breed-specific products like Wagyu and Angus -- can be enjoyed in different meat cuts and in a variety of cooking styles. Most Australian cattle are raised on open pasture, and Australian grass-fed beef is naturally low in fat and cholesterol, while offering a higher level of Omega 3 fatty acids.

The Australian red meat industry has a global reputation as a supplier of clean, safe and natural products, underpinned by its disease-free status and advanced food safety and integrity systems.

According to Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) Managing Director, Jason Strong, Australia’s red meat industry has world-leading production systems, is the custodian for half of Australia’s land mass, and plays a vital and sustainable role in feeding Australians and the world (https://www.beefcentral.com/news/red-meat-industry-urgespeople-to-get-more-facts-in-their-diet/).

MLA recently launched “Red Meat, Green Facts” (https://www.redmeatgreenfacts.com.au/) at Beef Australia 2021. It’s a “fast-facts‟ producer pocket guide and online resource providing important information about cattle, sheep and goat production in Australia, with a particular focus on animal welfare, protecting the environment and health and nutrition.

MLA invests in food safety research and development (R&D) projects across the value chain to support market access for the Australian red meat industry by enhancing product integrity and traceability from paddock to plate.

Beef plays an important role in the Malaysian diet, especially among Muslim consumers. Australian beef imported into Malaysia is halal compliant, adhering to strict standards required for producing halal meat and meat products, with the involvement and expertise of Islamic organisations to supervise and certify the production processes.

Australia is the second largest beef supplier to Malaysia, with a market share of approximately 12%. It is also the biggest supplier of chilled beef, accounting for almost 90% of the country’s chilled beef imports.

Australian Beef is widely available in major supermarkets and hypermarkets throughout the country. The different cuts of beef are in convenient and hygienic packs with the True Aussie Beef logo on it.

According to the MLA Global Consumer Tracker Malaysia, 2020, Malaysia has comparatively high per capita beef consumption of about 7kg per person a year, compared to the average of 5.4kg in the region. Australian beef is the favourite meat for many Malaysian families, especially among those with middle to high-income. Australian beef is also believed to offer the highest quality steak, with 40% of affluent Malaysians indicating it would be the first choice for their next beef purchase.

The True Aussie Beef Up campaign shares nutritious and practical recipes using Australian beef. Consumers not only are able to enjoy beef steaks and dishes made from Australian beef from participating restaurants or buy the Australian beef from retailers to cook at home, they could also join a contest as part of the Great Aussie Beef Escape promotion to be held from mid-July to mid-August.


Red Meat, Green Facts

Nutrition Iron 

Red meat is a great source of iron which is important for brain function, well-being and immunity. To get the same amount of iron that’s in 100g of cooked beef, you would need to eat a half kg of spinach. According to Nutrition Australia, the form of iron in red meat is easily absorbed. 

Zinc 

Zinc from red meat is easily absorbed, it’s important for healthy bone development, fertility and immunity. 

Omega-3 

Red meat is a good source of omega-3 since Australian beef and lamb are predominantly grass-fed. 

Essential nutrients 

Red meat is naturally rich in protein and provides 12 essential vitamins and minerals – iron, zinc, omega-3, magnesium, selenium, niacin, potassium, phosphorous, Vitamins B5, B6 and B12. These are important for brain function, muscle development and function, immunity and energy. 

Lean red meat fat content 

Lean red meat has a lower fat content than chicken. Trimmed of separable fat, lean beef has an average 2.7g fat per 100g raw weight while skinless chicken is 3.5g.

Green Facts

- Halved GHG (Greenhouse Gas) emission since 2005

- Grazing livestock remove greenhouse gas from the air by stimulating plant growth which speeds up absorption of carbon dioxide from the air into carbon in plants and soil.

- Methane from cattle breaks down into carbon dioxide after 10-12 years which is recycled by soil and plants that cattle, sheep and goats eat.

5 Ways to Spend Your eBelia Credit Using ShopeePay

Congratulations to those who have successfully claimed their RM150 eBelia credit through ShopeePay! The additional RM500 worth of vouchers received is definitely an opportunity for you to grab essentials to weather through the pandemic.

 

But what will you spend it on?

 


Here are five suggestions on how to spend your ShopeePay credit both online and offline, to make the most of what you’ve got.

 

1.     Food for thought


ShopeePay is an accepted mobile wallet for any food and beverage outlet with a DuitNow QR code. And better than that - after claiming your eBelia credit, use ShopeePay and receive RM5 cashback with a minimum spend of RM10 when you scan any other eWallet or Bank’s DuitNow QR codes to pay.

 

At the same time, you can also order food from DeliverEat and KFC and pay with ShopeePay. Ordering from KFC will allow you to claim RM4 cashback with a minimum spend of RM25.

 

You can also further stretch your Ringgit by buying ShopeePay Vouchers through Deals Near Me. Deals Near Me is the mobile wallet’s recently launched online-to-offline (O2O) feature that uses location-based services to help users discover ShopeePay Vouchers by nearby merchants, offering further discounts, special prices, and cashback rewards when users redeem the vouchers and complete their purchase using ShopeePay.

 

2.     Books galore

 

ShopeePay is an acceptable mobile wallet at Borders and MPH Bookstores. There are currently ShopeePay Vouchers for Borders on sale for as low as 10 sen, offering 40 percent cashback, capped at RM4 with no minimum spend. These can be redeemed at seven participating outlets.

 

The Big Bad Wolf Books official store on Shopee is also a great place to spend your eBelia credits on, with its extensive selection of books from a wide range of categories. Meanwhile, youths buying books at any MPH bookstore or even their website can take advantage of ShopeePay’s exclusive cashback of RM3 with a minimum spend of RM15.

 

3.     Groceries for adulting

 

It’s not that easy being in college as grocery buying on a tight budget becomes a norm. Buy your detergents, softeners, instant noodles and everything else at TMG Mart, Billion, TF Value-Mart and MYDIN to get RM3 cashback with a minimum spend of RM15.

Or if you prefer, just sit back, relax and have the items delivered to you when you order your groceries through MYDIN and Billion’s official store on Shopee. Checkout with ShopeePay to make use of the RM500 worth of vouchers you have received, such as the Free Shipping and Coins Cashback vouchers.

 

4.     Spend some cash on yourself

 

Yes, it’s good to be the responsible one to spend the money on needful things, but it is okay to address your wants every now and then as a form of self reward. As such, browse through sporting goods equipment to keep you fit or health and beauty products to help you look and feel your best on Shopee.

 

ShopeePay is also accepted by Al-Ikhsan Sporting Goods, L'OrĂ©al and Mary Kay’s online stores. For those who wish to use the credit to upgrade their wardrobes, TS Habibti and Tomaz are just a few of the many online fashion webstores that accept payments using ShopeePay.

 

5.     Pay it forward

 

While some would like to spend their eBelia cash on their own needs and wants, there may be some who would like to take this opportunity to pay it forward to charity, crowdfunding and social enterprises. For these, websites such as Simply Giving accept donations via ShopeePay.

 

Of course, it goes without saying that these are not the only ways you can spend your eBelia credit. You could get a wireless charging stand to declutter your workspace, or a silent mouse to help elevate your focus when preparing for your next big presentation.

 

However you choose to spend, spend wisely! For more information on eBelia with ShopeePay, visit https://shopee.com.my/m/ebelia-claim. Terms and conditions apply.
