Been saving up all year? Now’s the best time to shop because Hari Raya promotions are springing up across the country, especially at your favourite brands in major shopping malls.

For Muslims who haven’t had enough of Raya shopping, now’s your chance to nab these fantastic deals and invest in quality, stylish baju Raya for yourself and your loved ones. If you want to stay on top of the trend, we heard ultra violet is dominating the fashion scene this year!

2. Traveling

In Malaysia, Hari Raya is regarded as one of the best times to travel. Since it coincides with the mid-year school break, many families take this opportunity to go on a little excursion, be it locally or internationally. While traveling, it’s important not to scrimp on comfort or convenience as you want the best memories for your holiday.

Great news – Sunway Putra Hotel currently offers a School Holiday Package until 30th June 2018, inclusive of a RM30 dining voucher and 4 movie tickets, among other benefits. This is ideal for small families looking for a fun, family-friendly adventure without burning a hole in your bank account. Located in Kuala Lumpur, the hotel offers convenient access to restaurants, malls and a free shuttle service to some of the famed tourist spots in the city!

3. Feasting

You can’t have a memorable Hari Raya festival without good food. On days that you’d like to take a break from cooking, venture out to the restaurants with your family. Thankfully, plenty of eateries in KL are offering great promotions this season, so your only concern would be selecting the restaurant of your choice to dine in.

4. Pampering

Prepping for Hari Raya holidays can be stressful. Shopping for baju Raya and organizing the annual balik kampungfamily road trip ain’t a breeze, as these tasks often require time, energy and effort. On top of that, juggling the demands at work can dampen the Raya mood. So if you feel a burnout heading your way, don’t forget to treat yourself to a good pampering session.

Ladies, this is the perfect reason to splurge on a manicure/pedicure package, eyebrow enhancements and facials. Oh and let’s not forget the spas and massage parlours, which are guaranteed to relax both your mind and body. You could also get your man to tag along for a relaxing massage!

5. Family time

Finally, Hari Raya traditions wouldn’t be complete without quality family time. Apart from home gatherings and visitations, why not add a little spontaneity into the plan this year? If you have kids, treat them to a day at the Aquaria KLCC or Petrosains, also located in the Suria KLCC mall. It’d be a crime to assume that the aquarium and science discovery centre are just for kids. They contain enough entertainment to amuse adults too!
