ShopeePay celebrating local delights this Merdeka

The Merdeka celebration may be a tad different this year but one thing we know that will lift every Malaysian’s spirit is food… and discounts! So we scoured around looking for really mouth-watering deals and we came across the Merdeka Local Delights campaign via “Deals Near Me” on the Shopee app. 

Here are a few that we think will bring some gastronomic fireworks to your Merdeka celebration. 

Secret Recipe

A staple tenant in most malls in Malaysia, Secret Recipe remains the place to go to satisfy one's cake cravings - especially their Chocolate Banana Cake which is still raved about till today. Enjoy RM10 cashback when you purchase a minimum of RM50 through ShopeePay at the outlet. Take this opportunity to sample their Shinjuku Bake series and indulge in piping hot soft cake with ice cream!


This local fried chicken brand has grown to become a local go-to for those seeking a fried chicken treat, especially with a side of their crispy onion rings. We’ve seen Marrybrown stepping up their game with their pink bun burgers and Nasi Lemak campaign which made its way into the Malaysian Book of Records. In celebration of Merdeka, Marrybrown is offering users RM5 cashback with a minimum spend of RM15!


For those who fancy rotisserie chicken, Ayamas is currently offering their newly released Salted Egg flavored roast chicken from just RM9.90!! Even better, ShopeePay is offering RM3 cashback with a minimum spend of RM5 for you to enjoy at any of their participating outlets.

HOMI Curry Puff

Any big crispy curry puff lovers out there? Curry puffs hold a special place in the hearts of Malaysians and we definitely have a separate stomach just for it. Looking very much like a local version of croissants, HOMI is offering RM1 for a single curry puff when you purchase its voucher for just 1 sen!

OLDTOWN White Coffee

OLDTOWN White Coffee is celebrating this Merdeka with a few mouthwatering promotions. With the cost of 1 sen, you can now enjoy RM6 cashback with a minimum spend of RM18! What’s more, is that they’re also offering signature dishes for up to 55% off!! Time to drop by the nearest (only selected) OLDTOWN White Coffee branch for a yumcha session, but let’s not forget to follow SOPs.

Nam Heong

Can’t travel to Ipoh for some freshly baked egg tarts? Don’t worry because Nam Heong has you covered! Nam Heong is giving you RM4 cashback when you spend a minimum of RM15, all at the cost of 1 sen. You can also get any of their pastries for just RM2.50 per piece, exclusively available on Deals Near Me.


What’s better than a weekend brunch over banana leaf rice? Enjoy an RM4 cashback ShopeePay voucher when you spend a minimum of RM10 at any BananaBro outlet. Be it fish curry, fried chicken, or lamb varuval, don’t forget to get yourself some bitter gourd chips and papadom to go with it. To complete the experience, make sure you get a shot of rasam to wash it all down.


The smell of freshly baked coffee buns brings Malaysians a sense of nostalgia. We’d journey back to our worry-free school days and to date, the taste of Rotiboy brings joy that fellow Malaysians can understand. Feeling a little restless from being cooped up at home? Why not start your day with a freshly baked Rotiboy and enjoy RM3 cashback when you spend a minimum of RM5.

If we were to list down all the promotions available on Deals Near Me, this may take us till tomorrow. So why don’t you hop onto your Shopee app now, and check out the endless list of ShopeePay vouchers! The Merdeka Local Delights campaign ends 31 August.

Remember to read the terms and conditions carefully of each voucher. 

Selamat Hari Merdeka!

Ramai Graduan kesal dengan Jurusan Dipilih | Tun Mahathir kongsi tentang Platform YEG Academy

Platform pendidikan dan kerjaya atas talian , Your Education Guidance Academy (YEG) berbesar hati apabila mantan Perdana Menteri ke - 7, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad atau lebih mesra disapa sebagai Tun M sudi untuk meluangkan masa berkongsi pengalaman beliau bersama warganet khususnya pelajar-pelajar lepasan Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia.

Menerusi program kemuncak ‘Educareer Pasca COVID-19 Bootcamp’ yang bakal berlangsung pada 22 Ogos 2021, Tun M akan bersembang santai bersama hos, Tengku Izwan Fareed mengenai topik ‘Revolusi Pendidikan Tinggi Supaya Relevan Dengan Pasaran Kerja’ di semua platform media sosial YEG Academy dan negarawan itu bermula jam 10.30 pagi. Asbab hasil tinjauan mendapati 90% pelajar yang menyambung pengajian di IPT menyesal dengan jurusan yang mereka pilih, pihak YEG Academy turut berharap agar Tun M yang pernah diberi mandat sebagai Menteri Pendidikan suatu ketika dahulu dapat berkongsi pendapat beliau bersama warganet kelak. 

Sebelum itu, usahawan dan penyanyi rap terkenal, Caprice akan terlebih dahulu membuka tirai pagi dengan turut berkongsi pengalamannya dalam mengejar cita-cita. 

Menariknya mengenai ‘bootcamp’ anjuran YEG Academy, ia bukan sahaja berlangsung secara atas talian malah turut menampilkan ramai personaliti dan selebriti-selebriti terkenal tanah air yang terdiri daripada pelbagai latar belakang seperti MK K-Clique, Caprice, Ernie Zakri, Wani Kayrie, Faiz Dickie, Pencetus Ummah (PU) Amin serta ramai lagi. Dalam masa yang sama , YEG Academy sekaligus menjadi platform pendidikan dan kerjaya atas talian pertama di Malaysia yang menjayakan program seumpama ini. 

Mula berlangsung pada 2 Ogos lalu, mereka yang telah menonton siaran langsung ini rata-rata memberikan maklum balas yang sangat positif. Antaranya mereka dapat membuat pilihan jurusan yang lebih tepat, mengenali potensi diri, mengetahui kehendak industri serta banyak lagi.

Menurut pengarah YEG Academy, Encik Hasan bin Ithnin dan Encik Azizulhakim bin Suhaimi tujuan mereka adakan program ini adalah kerana ingin membantu pelajar sekolah dan universiti di luar sana memilih kerjaya yang tepat dengan keperluan industri kini dan dalam masa yang sama dapat mengurangkan kadar pengangguran negara. 

“Tujuan kami menganjurkan ‘Educareer Pasca COVID-19 Bootcamp’ kerana ingin membantu golongan muda lepasan SPM berusia 17 hingga 19 tahun atau mereka yang berminat, membuat pilihan tepat dalam pemilihan institusi pendidikan tinggi. Untuk rekod, dalam tempoh tiga tahun bermula dari tahun 2018 sehingga 2020, seramai 4000 golongan muda telah dibantu oleh YEG Academy untuk menyambung pelajaran dan membina kerjaya” jelas Hasan 

Mengambil faktor situasi kini, YEG Academy juga telah mengadakan sesi siaran langsung ‘virtual’ ini secara percuma di laman Instagram yang mana nilai sebenar bagi penyertaan ini adalah sebanyak RM1999 seorang. Ditambah pula program ini turut mendapat sokongan daripada Tabung Haji, Latihan Industri Bergaji Penuh (LIBP), Innovative School of Management (ISM) dan Aviation Career Malaysia. 

“ Kami sedia maklum akan keadaan negara sekarang yang berhadapan dengan pandemik COVID-19 sejak setahun yang lalu menyebabkan ramai golongan muda mengeluh tiada rujukan tambahan mengenai hala tuju mereka selepas SPM

“Jadi, YEG Academy telah memutuskan untuk mengadakan sesi perkongsian idea dan pandangan buat julung kalinya bersama figura-figura terkenal tanah air secara percuma. Ini adalah peluang keemasan untuk mereka sertai sesi ini kerana pada dasarnya mereka perlu membayar sebanyak RM 1999 bagi sesi selama 21 hari namun kali ini ia adalah percuma” tambah Azizulhakim 

Faktor penceramah jemputan yang terdiri daripada personaliti dan selebriti terkenal tanah air pula adalah kerana YEG Academy ingin mempelawa mereka berkongsi pengalaman terdahulu sebelum terkenal dan berjaya di dalam bidang masing-masing. 

“Kami melihat mereka bukan sahaja kerana terkenal atau dikenali sebagai selebriti semata-mata. Namun, kerana pencapaian yang telah dikecapi sebelum ini membuatkan kami terpanggil untuk mempelawa mereka berkongsi pengalaman. Sebagai contoh, Wani Kayrie telah berjaya mendapat keputusan cemerlang di dalam SPM dan Faiz Dickie pula pernah bergelar sebagai pensyarah” 

“Dengan kredibilti mereka sebagai figura terkenal, kami percaya dapat memberi inspirasi kepada golongan muda yang menonton sesi bicara ini. Tidak dilupakan, Tun M yang sememangnya dikenali dunia sebagai salah seorang pemimpin yang disegani. Sudah pasti, banyak perkongsian yang akan dibuat oleh negarawan ini apatah lagi penonton boleh bertanyakan soalan ketika siaran langsung itu dibuat kelak” ujar Hasan lagi

Untuk menyertai program YEG Academy, layari pautan hari ini. Ikuti perkembangan terkini menerusi laman media sosial Facebook @youreducationguidance, Instagram @yegacademy.official atau YouTube @YEGAcademy .

Shopee rolls out company-wide staff vaccination programme to protect employees and shoppers

In a bid to further its commitment in the fight against Covid-19, Shopee announced today that it is participating in the private sector vaccination programme with the aim to have its employees fully vaccinated against the virus.

Shopee revealed that it has prioritised its frontliners from its logistics arm, Shopee Express, as well as teams working in the warehouses as they face the highest risk and have the most potential interaction with shoppers. 

Commenting on this initiative, Terence Pang, Chief Operating Officer at Shopee said, “Our employees are the backbone of the organisation. Their safety, together with that of our users, is our utmost priority especially as the pandemic continues to affect the lives of Malaysians. We seek to safeguard the health and well-being of our people better against Covid-19 through this exercise, whilst contributing to the nation’s goal of achieving herd immunity.”

This measure is also part of Shopee’s reassurance to its users for a better and safer online shopping experience as reliance on e-commerce deepens. Pang shared, “This effort is even more important as we ramp up towards the year-end shopping season, which has always been a highlight for the people and businesses in the country. We want to do our part to help everyone shop with a peace of mind and to help local businesses sell with greater ease and certainty. 9.9 marks the start of the shopping season and I hope that by making buying and selling safer, we can bring smiles to more Malaysians.”

This commitment comes ahead of the e-commerce platform’s flagship 9.9 Super Shopping Day which is the first of its four end-of-year shopping festivals. 

The upcoming 9.9 Super Shopping Day, which will take place from 20 August leading up to the peak day on 9 September, also has something in-store for all its users. Shoppers can look forward to claiming Free Shipping and 99% Coins Cashback vouchers, both with no minimum spend. Above all, users can also stand a chance to win a brand new Mercedes-Benz by participating in the Play & Win Mercedes-Benz game by collecting golden tickets daily.

With 25 August just around the corner, Shopee will also be holding its August 25 Payday Sale which will feature RM25 Knockout Deals where shoppers can get items such as Samsung Galaxy A12, Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair, Armaggeddon Shuttle II Premium PU Leather Ultimate Gaming Chair and more for just RM25.

Aside from the employee vaccination programme, Shopee has been championing the fight against the pandemic since the onset of Covid-19.

It allocated 1 million Shopee voucher packs worth RM40 each through the #ShopeeAjakVaksin campaign to reward Covid-19 vaccine recipients at selected vaccination centres across the country to encourage the public to stick to their vaccination appointments. Last year, together with the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA), Shopee raised about RM1 million in a public donation drive to support the nation’s medical frontliners.

On the business community front, Pang stated that the e-commerce platform introduced a RM15 million Shopee Seller Support Package in April 2020 to help traditional businesses who were facing cash flow problems due to the lockdown. “Following which, we introduced a Shopee Marketplace Growth Package providing benefits of up to RM1,600 in store vouchers and advertising credit to help existing Shopee sellers grow on the platform. Both initiatives not only drove digitalisation of local MSMEs but also cushioned the adverse impact of the pandemic on their businesses.”

He added that on top of this, Shopee supported consumers with additional free shipping vouchers through its “Stay Home, Stay Safe” campaign to give Malaysians access to essential items such as fresh and frozen groceries, cooking ingredients, beverages, snacks and cereals, milk formula, diapers, personal care products, household essentials, pet food and work-from-home equipment online.
