MAGGI® Celebrates the Pesta Ka’amatan Season: Pays Special Tribute to Frontline Heroes

The annual Jom Masak & Menang Bersama contest is back this year with great prizes to be won including the grand prize - a Mitsubishi Triton worth more than RM100,000!

The soul of Tadau Ka’amatan is that of thanksgiving and heritage, celebrated over a spread of local delicacies and favourites. For MAGGI®, it has always been a privilege to hold a special place in the Sabahan kitchen, whether it’s for everyday cooking or special dishes lovingly prepared during festive seasons.

“At the core of the Tadau Ka’amatan harvest festival lies the story of patience, diligence and hard work. While the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic has changed the dynamics of how we live and celebrate these special occasions with our loved ones, MAGGI® hopes to continue to support and be an everyday ally to the people of Sabah during these challenging times,” says Geetha Balakrishna, Business Executive Officer, MAGGI®, Nestlé (Malaysia) Berhad.

[Activities] An adventure to the Taralamas River Canyon, Kg. Tiang Lama, Ranau.

Wow, what a year.  I can't remember the last time, oh wait I did went for hiking months back to Tamaza Waterfall (sorry blog post tergendala) but I haven't been doing it as often that I would have liked.  This time, went on a trip with my group from handstand class with a runner friend to Taralamas River Canyon in Ranau. 

We opt for overnight at the homestay which cost us RM30 per person, coz we needed the electricity to charge our phones (there's camping 🏕 option: Bring your own tent at RM10 per pax and RM20 per pax for option at the sulap), and coz it's way more convenient than waking up early and driving at 3am to get to our somewhat unknown destination that might take us 3 hours to reach.

Russell ‘Taylors’ to Sabahans’ needs by bringing its products to S-Mart Sabah

Russell Taylors, a brand specialising in kitchen appliances for the home, now delivers its line of products to Sabahans directly from the state itself via a collaboration with Malaysia’s no. 1 e-commerce platform Shopee. This expansion is on the back of market research executed by the brand, where resulting insights have shown a strong demand for Russell Taylors goods from Sabah.

With the country still battling the spread of Covid-19, the digitalization of businesses becomes essential as more Malaysians shop online for necessities including home appliances. This is apparent in the sales performance achieved by Russell Taylors on Shopee during the Movement Control Order (MCO) period.

The story of Veveonah Mosibin who had to spend a night up a tree to get better internet access in order to do her exams online, has caught the attention of Shopee.  The e-commerce platform sent a team over to Kg Sapatalang, Pitas, to visit the 18 year old student and presented her with a Shopee Care Package.

After hearing her plight, Shopee got in touch with Veveonah to better understand her needs.  The e-commerce platform then put together a kit comprising a laptop, smartphone, backpack, wireless Bluetooth speaker, headphones, powerbank and smartwatch to aid her in her education.  Shopee Mall retailer, N4 Camera Store who learned about Veveonah's interest in Youtube video-making also extended a sponsorship of a tripod and ring light to support her hobby.
