Shopee answers call to lower cost of living with 9.9 Super Shopping Day

Over the past year, the Government has rolled out a number of initiatives to reduce the cost of living in Malaysia. Its recent initiative is the establishment of the National Action Committee on e-commerce by the National Cost of Living Action Council. The aim is to promote and strengthen the use of e-commerce, thereby eliminating the role of middlemen in a bid to lower the cost of consumer goods.

In view of this, the Government has been engaging closely with Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, on how it can best alleviate the rising cost of living for Malaysians. One of Shopee’s efforts is to work alongside Malaysian retailers by lowering the barrier of entry to the digital economy. Additionally, the cost of operating a business online is much lower. In turn, Shopee encourages retailers to share their cost savings with shoppers, thereby making online shopping more affordable for consumers. As a result, consumers see themselves saving an average of 20% on their daily necessities when they shop on Shopee on a regular day, with the potential to save up to 90% during major shopping events like 9.9 Super Shopping Day.

Taking place from 19 August to 9 September 2019, the campaign offers greater deals and discounts across categories from brands such as Nutox, HP, L'Oréal, Vinda, Photobook Malaysia, Enfagrow, Universal Traveller, realme, MR DIY and Nestle. To further promote the adoption of e-commerce and encourage Malaysians to take advantage of these savings, Shopee is bringing down the minimum spend for free shipping to RM9.

Welcoming the initiative, Song Hock Koon, Director of E-Commerce, Malaysia Digital Economy Corporation, said, “One of MDEC’s objectives is to encourage Malaysians to become immersed in the digital ecosystem, as such initiatives like these will help accelerate adoption in a sustainable and cost-effective manner. We are always pleased to collaborate and support industry moves and trust that this latest initiative will further inspire digital entrepreneurship efforts.”

Ian Ho, Regional Managing Director, Shopee said, “Shopee’s mission has always been to impact local communities on a meaningful and sustainable level through initiatives such as our sales campaigns that will allow Malaysians to continue shopping and stocking up on necessities without breaking the bank. At the same time, I am happy to announce Shopee’s partnership with our latest brand ambassador Cristiano Ronaldo. Having him on board is truly a milestone for us. This makes us more than just a shopping platform as we continue to inspire users and connect them with the biggest stars and celebrities in the world.”

At the launch of 9.9 Super Shopping Day held at Grand Hyatt Kuala Lumpur, Shopee revealed its newest brand ambassador, Cristiano Ronaldo. As one of the greatest athletes, he is an inspiration to many and his dedication to football resonates with the deep commitment Shopee has towards its users. He will be working with Shopee across its seven markets in a wide range of activities to engage and inspire people in the region.

The 9.9 Super Shopping Day will feature three weeks of super promotions and entertainment as well as exclusive privileges with leading industry players:
     Shocking Sale - 9 times daily, enjoy deals from as low as RM1.
     RM9.90 Super Voucher Pack - Pay RM9.90 to enjoy vouchers from Shopee, Agoda, dahmakan, Dal.komm Coffee, ZEN Rooms, Grab, BBQ Chicken, Victoria Station, KKday,, Muslim Pro, MBO, Dunkin Donuts and Teppanyaki and receive savings up to 17x of your money spent.

Boyzone "Thank you and Goodnight Farewell" Tour

 Boyzone "Thank you and Goodnight Farewell" Tour in Kuala Lumpur
Date & Time: Monday 14th JUNE, 2019 Friday 8.30pm 
Venue: Melawati Indoor Stadium, Shah Alam

Former boy band Westlife member and songwriter Brian McFadden has been announced as special guest performer in Boyzone’s “Thank You and Goodnight Farewell Tour” last show on 14th June 2019 at Malawati Stadium, Shah Alam.
McFadden started his singing career as member of Westlife, which was formed in 1998 and released the debut studio album “Westlife” in 1999.
He left Westlife in 2004 to begin his solo career and released the single “Real to Me,” a track in his debut solo album “Irish Son.”
In 2016, McFadden and Boyzone’s Keith Duffy formed the group Boyzlife and toured the world, performing their bands’ hits.
Boyzone’s Duffy, Michael Graham, Ronan Keating and Shane Lynch will be performing some of their greatest hits including “When You Say Nothing At All,” “No Matter What” and “Love Me For A Reason.”
“When we started out as five young Dublin Northsiders, eager to face the world, we never imagined that we’d still have an army of fans some twenty-five years later… If you’d seen our famous first TV appearance on ‘The Late Late Show,’ you’d probably be surprised too!” said the band, according the tour website.
Boyzone enjoyed success throughout their career.
“We’ve played stadiums and arenas all over the world, released six albums, and had almost two-dozen hits. We really can’t put into words just how much you, the fans, have supported us along the way. Without that support, we would have never achieved what we have, and for that we’re eternally grateful,” they added.

Successful OKU - Jamumall Khairul Nizam

Would like to share an inspiring story of,
Khairul Nizam,
The founder of Jamumall Sdn Bhd.

With physical disability,
Life is never easy for Nizam.
From someone whom needed help to maintain his daily life,
Like eating and taking a shower,
By just using 3 fingers,
To become a successful entrepreneur,
Handling a well-known company - JamuMall!

Physical disability is actually not an disability in mind and will..
Where there's a will, there's a way...
There's no word such as 'Giving Up'
In Nizam's life dictionary,
That's what makes him successful as he is today...

Besides handling his business well..
He also gets the chance to travel and explore around the world...

He doesn't limit himself...
No physical disability, 
Would be a barrier to success....

You have everything,
Don't complain over a little things missing..
Be grateful for what we have,
Each and every moment of our life...
