With the annual bazaars cancelled and the circuit breaker in place, where do we get our Raya snacks? How do we liven up the Raya spirit?
Well, Instagram user @bazaarraya2020, created an account for everyone to experience a virtual bazaar where we could shop for Raya essentials through our mobile phones.
It is also a platform to support local businesses that was affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and cancellations . You can find anything from food, make-up products to clothes and services.
With that we will be zooming in to the food section of the online bazaar. Here are some foodie accounts where you can order your Raya delights:
