Do we have hope to be completely free from covid-19 before Ramadhan :') i really wanna enjoy puasa vibes, tarawih vibes, and the excitement of hearing radio about the Eid Mubarak announcement.— joules (@luvrjoules) March 26, 2020
cant wait for this RMO to end & by that means Covid-19 is gone, everyoneâ€™s safe, we all can go to bazaar, perform tarawikh, buka puasa with family, relatives and close friends, balik raya, keluar dating, makan souffle, gi park date sebab semua dah gemok dan lain lain.— Ë—ËË‹ too turnt ansywni ËŽËŠË— (@ainsyawani) March 29, 2020
After all, whatâ€™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 peopleâ€™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 yearâ€™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 appâ€¦) 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 weâ€™ll be getting our satar and nasi kerabu this puasa month. Share your thoughts on TRP’s Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
