Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to the ‘Kashless’ Kampong Bharu Ramadan Bazaar to experience the #RayaSempoi with Touch ‘n Go eWallet. Opened daily at 3pm from 6 May until 31 May 2019, the ‘Kashless’ bazaar was given a ‘modernised’ touch that perfectly encapsulates the multifaceted #RayaSempoi spirit that the eWallet represents.
Kampong Bharu is a township known for its rich history and packed with local flavours. As the last Malay village in the metropolitan city, visitors often throng the streets during Ramadan for the atmosphere, local delicacies and spirit of the stalls. You can also grab the opportunity to learn more about the history of Rumah Warisan and Kelab Sultan Sulaiman within the compound.
Users of the Touch ‘n Go eWallet can pay for their iftar meals across all 400 stalls at the bazaar by simply scanning the QR code of the merchants. Once the meals are purchased, visitors can opt to break fast with the community at Halaman Sempoi, situated at Rumah Warisan.
“We want to better connect with the community by making technology more inclusive, in a way that will benefit users and merchants alike. The ‘Kashless’ Kampong Bharu Ramadan Bazaar is one of our initiatives to inspire the public in re-imagining the way payment is made and make eWallet payment more commonplace,” said Syahrunizam Samsudin, CEO of TNG Digital Sdn Bhd.
I was thrilled for the exciting activities at the bazaar including cashbacks worth RM1,000,000 through Ketupat Runtuh, or exclusive merchandise purchase through Hadiah Extra Sempoi and more!
In keeping to the spirit of giving this Ramadan, visitors who make their way to Masjid Jamek Kampong Bharu can also make a donation using the Touch ‘n Go eWallet by scanning the QR codes available at the mosque.
During Ramadan, food wastage tends to increase by 15% to 20%. With moderation being the core of this holy month, the Touch ‘n Go eWallet embarks on a programme to ensure that any excess food at the bazaar will be donated to people in need. Excess food will be collected and packed by volunteers, before it is distributed to the homeless and urban poor.
This #zerofoodwastage initiative is helmed and supported by Yang Amat Mulia Tengku Datin Paduka Setia Zatashah Binti Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, in collaboration with Kechara Soup Kitchen. The Selangor princess, who is a vocal champion against wastage had visited the ‘Kashless’ bazaar earlier and distributed bubur lambuk to the public at Masjid Jamek.
She had taken the opportunity to share her passion in showcasing to the public to #sayno2plastic. “Every year we will see a lot of food and plastics being thrown away and this contributes to an enormous amount of waste. This year, I wish for all Malaysians to be responsible towards eradicating food waste and saying no to single-use plastics. I hope that more organisations can work together with the public to protect our environment to be clean and free from plastic,” said Tengku Zatashah.
The Touch ‘n Go eWallet is available for download on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store respectively. For more information, please visit www.tngd.my/rayasempoi.
