While we're hopeful that the Movement Control Order (MCO) will be lifted soon, we already know that puasa and Raya are going to be very different this year
Not only have Ramadan Bazaars been cancelled nationwide, all mosque gatherings in Selangor have been suspended too. Everyone is also encouraged to continue social distancing, even after the MCO, which means it'll be difficult to do things like balik kampung, gather for buka puasa, or host open houses.
Grab is making sure that Malaysians will still be able to enjoy Ramadan and make all the necessary preparations for Raya
To do this, they're gearing up all their different services to help Malaysians get everything they need to have a great festive season ahead, from yummy eats to gorgeous baju raya, and more! Whatever you search for, Grab has it.
