Take a look at some convenient Ramadan digital platforms below and get your delicious delights delivered to you instead

 

With the Movement Control Order in place until 12 May 2020 (for now, at least), Ramadan is bound to be a little different this year. The usual Ramadan buffets are replaced with Iftar set menu deliveries; and the typical bazaars are now completely online. All these measures are, of course, to keep us safe and healthy while we continue to self-isolate at home. The negative effects or consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic are massive (oh, Miss Corona)—but that does not mean we can't still enjoy the things we love.

The New Normal means adapting and finding ways to bring normalcy back into our lives without jeopardising the health of ours and others. The digitalisation of Ramadan bazaars is one brilliant example. According to SME Corporation Malaysia, "e-bazaars are online platforms for food entrepreneurs, traders, and hawkers to operate their businesses" from 24 April to 23 May 2020.
