Malaysian Muslims are getting anxious about the prospect of celebrating the fasting month of Ramadan in light of the nationwide Movement Control Order (MCO) and the larger Covina-19 pandemic.

After all, what’s puasa without the wondrous sight and sounds of our many bustling markets and bazaars as well as the delicious delicacies that, for some, would only be available once a year.

Well in order to boost the people’s Ramadan spirit, fill their appetites, and as a means to keep the local economy moving, Terengganu plans to provide an online platform for this year’s bazar Ramadan.

According to the state government, Terengganu entrepreneurs may register their businesses at the online bazaar made available in the second week of April.

Though there was no mention of how the system (whether its a website or mobile app…) would look, feel or generally function, state officials did explain that the online bazaar would only use electronic payment services or e-Wallets for all sales and transactions.

So far, Terengganu is the only state that has banned bazar Ramadans in light of the pandemic.

Guess we know where we’ll be getting our satar and nasi kerabu this puasa month. Share your thoughts on TRP’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
