Teh tarik ikat tepi, roti man, the infamous typical Malaysian hand gestures. These are just a few things that tell people we are Malaysians, without telling them we are Malaysians.
This Merdeka, Star Media Group (SMG) will be running the #SimplyMalaysian campaign that invites Malaysians from all walks of life to share and celebrate their food, experiences, destinations and stories that showcase our unique national identity.
From Aug 22 to Sept 16, to mark the nation’s 65th year of independence, this campaign will be giving away 65 attractive prizes to 65 most creative #SimplyMalaysian stories.
To stand a chance to win prizes such as electronic appliances, staycations, cash vouchers and more, all the participants need to do is to submit entries that “tell us you’re Malaysian, without telling us you’re Malaysian”.
Submissions can be in the form of photos or videos alongside a creative caption and the official hashtag #SimplyMalaysian, which can be submitted at simplymalaysian.the star.com.my or send via WhatsApp to 03-7964 6600.
Aside from participating in the campaign, the public can also view and appreciate each other’s quirky submissions on the campaign website, all aimed at celebrating quintessential everyday Malaysian moments and scenarios.
As part of the Merdeka month festivities, SMG is also offering a special discount of 50% for all The Star Digital Access subscription plans to content on TheStar.com.my and its app.
Readers can also enjoy a 44% discount for one month of The Star ePaper subscription during the campaign period.
