Merdeka! promotions and offers


Shouts of "Merdeka", which is freedom or independence in the Malay language, was heard throughout Malaysia on 31 August 1957 after Malaysia's first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra al-Haj declared the independence of the Federation of Malaya from the British rule.

So, 55 years from then, Malaysia will be celebrating its 55th National Day tomorrow. The theme varies from year to year. This year, it's "Janji Ditepati", which translates into "promises kept". I won't be discussing Malaysian politics because it is such a sad case.

Anyway, there are some freebies and promotions on for the National Day (and some not-too-related ones). For example,

RapidKL will extend monorail and LRT rides' operating hours to 1am for 30 and 31 August for selected stations: Bandaraya, Hang Tuah, Titiwangsa, Kelana Jaya, KL Sentral, Masjid Jamek, Dang Wangi and KLCC.
Free rides would also be given to those who attend the Merdeka Day gathering in Bukit Jalil. You could get a token from various LRT or monorail stations to get to the Bukit Jalil LRT station and a similar token back from the Bukit Jalil LRT station.

Several highways and expressways will offer discounts and rebates for the National Day celebration tomorrow. And the LDP expressway is FREE to all motorists.

Taiwan based Hot-Star Large Fried Chicken will be having a Merdeka Day Buy 1 Free 1 promo at Pavilion Mall and SS15 tomorrow. I've tried the one in Taiwan and it was worth the queue!

And since it's the 31st, drop by at Baskin Robbins to get 31% off on handpacked ice-cream.

And if you are a huge fan of Paul Frank, make use of this opportunity to get a 50% discount on the 2nd item.

Well, honestly, I'd get something else because I don't think I'll spend RM550 on this.

Happy Merdeka my dear Malaysians!
