Malaysian sellers participating in Shopeeโ€™s 9.9 Super Shopping Day for the first time achieve over 5 times uplift in sales

Yeahโ€ผ๏ธโ€ผ๏ธ Do you all enjoy Shopee shopping ๐Ÿ›๏ธ๐Ÿ›’๐ŸŒ๐Ÿงก just like SiennyLovesDrawingย  the recent 9.9 Super Shopping Dayโ“โ‰๏ธ

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

Health & Beauty and Home & Living categories proved popular, with most buyers coming from areas including Johor Bahru, Kuching & Kota Bharu

Shopee continues to offer more value and fun for shoppers and sellers during its 9.9 Super Shopping Day. The start of the End of Year Sale season concluded on a high, with local sellers in Malaysia who were participating in Shopeeโ€™s 9.9 Super Shopping Day for the first time achieving an average sales uplift of more than 5 times on 9 September, compared to a usual day.

Health & Beauty, Home & Living and Mobile & Accessories emerged as the top categories sold during the shopping festivalโ€™s peak day.

Interestingly, despite the recent announcement that face masks are no longer mandatory indoors except in certain situations, masks were still one of the most sought-after products on 9 September. Treats and snacks for cats and storage products such as folding boxes, cake boxes and paper bags also proved to be a hit among consumers. The latter may be a sign that local sellers are preparing for anticipated orders in the coming months.

Those living in Johor Bahru, Kinta, Seremban, Melaka Tengah, Kuching and Kota Bharu were busy checking out their shopping carts during 9 September. These locations registered the highest number of orders in the country, outside of Klang Valley.

Meanwhile, live streaming continued to provide enjoyable and interactive shopping experiences to users. Within the campaign period from 26 August till 9 September, Malaysian shoppers spent over 2 million hours watching streams on Shopee Live. Buyers also had fun while shopping, with a total of over 24 million game plays on Shopee Prizes during the same period.

All about Shopee app, online shopping, ewallet, ecommerce, ShopeeFood, ShopeePay, app, ShopeeAmbassador

ShopeePay was also a preferred payment method for checking out by users when purchasing items on Shopee during the 9.9 Super Shopping Day. Within the first two hours of 9 September, there was a 9-times uplift for orders paid using ShopeePay, compared to an average day in the previous year. In the last two years since the pandemic, users are likely more accustomed to paying using cashless payments methods like ShopeePay for ease of use as well as value in terms of rewards.

ShopeeFood since starting in November 2021 has helped many users to connect with merchants that are both big and small through the integrated platform offered by Shopee. Micro merchants especially benefit greatly from the ecosystem as the platform helps merchants to expand their businesses in the post-pandemic period by connecting them to a large base of online users available on the Shopee mobile app.

This is evident based on the Top Dishes ordered by users during the 9.9 Super Shopping Day. Across all the five locations (Kuala Lumpur/Putrajaya, Johor, Penang, Sabah and Ipoh), most users took advantage of the great discounts and promotions to order their favourite local staples like Roti Canai, Satay and Nasi Ayam Penyet. Besides supporting local F&B merchants, users also ordered a high number of food items like Strawberry Chocolate Chip Almond Milk Frappe, Sushi, Matcha Boba Tea and Pasta based food items.

Kenneth Soh, Head of Marketing Campaigns at Shopee Malaysia said, โ€œWeโ€™re really humbled to play a small part to help local sellers on our platform achieve a significant level of sales uplift during the 9.9 Super Shopping Day. We can see that our marketing tools and seller engagement features are empowering MSMEs to capture significant growth opportunities in the digital economy. Shopee is looking forward to continuing boosting their sales during the year end, while enabling Malaysians to enjoy the best savings on our platform.โ€

If your mouth feels dry & sticky with saliva that seems thick & stringy, you probably have a dry mouth ๐Ÿ‘„ What can be worse is if you have difficulty chewing, speaking & swallowing, offensive breath & mouth ulcers, which are all signs of an irritated mouth ๐Ÿ‘„

A dry & irritated mouth is usually caused by viral infection or allergies. However, there are also other factors like ambient air pollution, weather changes & smoking ๐Ÿšฌ that can aggravate the condition. As viral infections are the major causes of dry & irritated mouth, most cases do not require any antibiotic treatment

People usually turn to herbal remedies made of natural ingredients such as honey ๐Ÿฏ, propolis, aloe vera ๐Ÿ’š & peppermint ๐ŸŒฟ, which are commonly used for anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory, cooling & soothing to relieve the symptoms of dry & irritated mouth, such as bad breath or mouth ulcers.

This round she ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป would like to share about her recent media attendance to witness the official media launch to raising greater conservation awareness with WATER ๐Ÿ’ฆ: A Musical ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ presented by Somerset Music & Mr Chin San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป

WATER ๐Ÿ’ฆ is a musical ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ Tiger ๐Ÿ…๐Ÿฏ calls the animals for a meeting to discuss man’s act of deforestation which leads to the pollution of rivers. All the 7๏ธโƒฃ animals affirm the sacredness of Mother Earth ๐ŸŒ, ohh no no…๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

Guess whatโ“โ‰๏ธ

The musical ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ is interactive. The audience are invited to sing ๐ŸŽค & dance ๐Ÿฉฐ together with the cast members, wowโ€ผ๏ธ Absolutely gonna be an exciting & interesting musical experience with a meaningful conservation awareness raised, bravoโ€ผ๏ธ

It’s a collaboration ๐Ÿค๐Ÿป between playwright/director, Mr Chin San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป aka nickname in Mandarin ๅฑฑๆฐด Mountain Water, with music by Ms Joanne Poh ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ of Somerset Music, the audience can look forward to this 60mins of memorable cum interactive engagement with the cast members. Ms Joanne ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ & the cast members have proudly shared during the launch that the music is catchy & interactive for audiences to sing ๐ŸŽค & dance ๐Ÿฉฐ along with all cast members during the musical play. Wowโ€ผ๏ธ SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป is looking forward toward it, how about youโ“โ‰๏ธ

Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป said at the official media launch of WATER at Warung Old China in Kuala Lumpur (KL), West Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ, โ€œI was contemplating writing a play on the topic of conservation when I read of the deforestation that was taking place at the National Park ๐Ÿž๏ธ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ in Pahang, Malaysia ๐Ÿ‡ฒ๐Ÿ‡พ many years ago. I was too earnest & the muse eluded me, till now.โ€

When the covid lockdown began, Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป spent 4๏ธโƒฃ very productive months occupied, with the end result of finishing 8๏ธโƒฃ scripts: 2๏ธโƒฃ satires, 3๏ธโƒฃ musicals, 2๏ธโƒฃ monologues & 1๏ธโƒฃ operetta. So, that is how WATER ๐Ÿ’ฆ : A Musical ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ is flowing out to the Malaysian audience in this post-covid environment

It’s really a privilege for SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป to be at this official media launch to hear directly from Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป, Ms Joanne ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ, Mr Khang Nanyao ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป & some cast members of their involvement & preparation of this musical play ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ

Do check out her TikTok clip captured from her media attendance via ๐Ÿ“น๐ŸŒ

Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป continues to share that: โ€œA musical ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ is more difficult to realise as it is very challenging to compose a piece of music ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ to lyrics written by another person. I approached Joanne ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ to compose the music. Joanne in her own right is a piano teacher, runs a music school & has sung in choirs & performed on stage. I gave her a year to work on the music. I am glad that Joanne Poh took up the gauntlet with our 3๏ธโƒฃ musicians.”

He ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป further explained to the media members that during the covid lockdown, he basically spent time on eat ๐Ÿ˜‹, sleep ๐Ÿ’ค๐Ÿ˜ด & write โœ๐Ÿป, repeat almost the same daily & then produced this play ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ He always wanted to create something relating to pollution & conservation. He just sat down to write without any ideas, then this play materialized naturally. Bravoโ€ผ๏ธ

He ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป also admitted to the media members that personally, he is not good in music, not a single note. He understands the difficulty of composing music ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ from play, so he spoke to Joanne ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ, a music teacher, singer, pianist & more to invite her to compose music for this play. Joanne actually being modest & hesitant to Mr San Sooi’s invitation at the beginning, she managed to produce the music for this play after 1๏ธโƒฃ year. Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ

Ms Joanne ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ then shared with the media that a total of 8๏ธโƒฃ songs, each animals represent in each music. Why took a yearโ“โ‰๏ธ She was procrastinating at 1st, hence delaying it when she was invited by Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป To her, music ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ actually comes when you don’t want it from her music experiences. She would like to have her music on how to connect with the audiences. Also to her, the animal’s gender in this play actually makes a difference in her music creation. It’s neutral & simple to looping mind ๐Ÿง  when connecting with music ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ Even for children/ students ๐Ÿ‘ฆ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘ง๐Ÿป๐Ÿง’๐Ÿป, to educate them on pollution & conservation through music ๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽต Of course different for adults & teenagers will be also different. The children will come with adults (ie. Parents/ teachers) to the play, so using appropriate music ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ to tight in the play script content is really important to connect with the audiences whether during or even out from the theater that the audiences still remembering the conservation messages from this musical play ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ

She ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ further explained that she was hesitant to Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป’s invitation at the beginning because it’s totally ๐Ÿ†• to her to put music in this educational play. She was lacking of confidence with totally something ๐Ÿ†• to her music experiences. She took a lot of courage because she understands well that this music from her needs to be put on stage for the public. At last, she decided to still give it a try. Yeahโ€ผ๏ธ Ohh ya…Ms Joanne ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿ’ผ also shared that she was at 1๏ธโƒฃst worried about the generation gap with Mr San Sooi, 81 ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป who is actually on par with her grand parents age. She appreciates the trust from Mr San Sooi with her to put tunes to his play script created. In fact, she has total freedom in her music creation to this play ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

โ€œWATER ๐Ÿ’ฆ is a combined effort by us in an act of creativity with the members of the cast. The oldest cast member is 61 year old Hilda Looi ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿฆฑ & the youngest cast member is school girl, Kirsten Wong, 13 ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ Together with designer, Khang Nanyao, we have set the stage with the different cast of characters through head gear specially created headwear for Mousedeer ๐ŸฆŒ, Tiger ๐Ÿฏ, Elephant ๐Ÿ˜, Monkey ๐Ÿต & Wildboar/ Warthog ๐Ÿ— In a small but significant way, we hope that WATER ๐Ÿ’ฆ : A Musical ๐ŸŽต๐ŸŽถ๐ŸŽผ would make people be more aware of the environment & treat it with respect & concern. The play could lead to larger issues like conservation of the seas & oceans ๐ŸŒŠ,โ€ added Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป

Mr Khang Nanyao ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป shared during the official media launch that the animal’s head gears were all 3D printed for current edge trending technology. So, the weight of each is not heavy & does not spoil very fast. These head gear with PLA plastics is possible to recycle โ™ป๏ธ, but it may require special techniques to recycle them

Hmm…Importance of technology over the nature/ being environment friendlyโ“โ‰๏ธ Personally, SiennyLovesDrawing ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿป as a go green ๐Ÿ’š person would think of using a more environmental friendly materials in producing the head gears would be more meaningful to this play on conservation initiative & awareness ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

Mr Khang Nanyao ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป further explained to media members that he appreciates the trust from Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘จ๐Ÿป as he has full control on the hear gear design, yes โœ…, basically everything on his own ideas & no restrictions of head gear ideas for this play. It’s actually both the spiritual design with technology design at the same time. He did an open head helmet instead of a covered mask as requested by Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป His artwork more on live vs death ~ More scary side. Started making a difference in this play by adding in past & future elements to his head gear design. The cause & effect of humans made. To Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป, the white side of the head gear signifies spiritual to him. It’s an interesting interpretation of the head gear created. It took average 4๏ธโƒฃ days to produce a head gear of the animal, except 5๏ธโƒฃ days for the elephant ๐Ÿ˜ head gear

One of the cast member, Madam Hilda Looi ๐Ÿ‘ฉ๐Ÿปโ€๐Ÿฆฑ has shared that her 1๏ธโƒฃst play was when she was in 18 yrs old & this musical play is her 2nd involvement as Elephant 1๐Ÿ˜ Being the oldest cast member in this musical play, she is looking forward to working with the younger generation. While the youngest cast member, Ms Kirsten Wong ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ is not doing much acting before her involvement to this play as Monkey 1๐Ÿต It’s really a good ๐Ÿ†• experience to learn new things. While another cast member, Ricky – shared that it’s his 1๏ธโƒฃst play as Elephant 2๐Ÿ˜ in this musical play & a lot more to learn

Mr San Sooi ๐Ÿ‘ด๐Ÿป has added at the end of the official media launch that all cast members will start the rehearsal of this musical play in early Sept. Ohh yes, it’s on going now, so your ticket booking & purchase surely motivating & boosting encouraging vibes to all the cast members ya ๐Ÿ˜€ Let’s support local Malaysian artistsย

โ–  Name of Exhibition teamLab: Resonating Microcosms

โ– Title Resonating Microcosms: Liquified Light Color, Sunrise & Sunset ๐ŸŒ‡๐ŸŒ† The Rooftop Garden, which features countless ovoids, is an art space that transforms through changes in the natural environment & the presence of people. Under the sun ๐Ÿ”†๐Ÿ˜Ž, the ovoids reflect the world around them. As the sun sets, the ovoids begin to shine by themselves. When an ovoid is pushed by a person, blown by the wind ๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ๐Ÿƒ, or hit by rain ๐ŸŒง๏ธโ˜”, it shines brightly & emits a sound tone as it rises back up on its own. The ovoids around it also respond one after another, resonating out the same sound tone & light color. The surrounding Resonating Trees also respond & change continuously teamLab is experimenting with the concept of color ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿคฉ

The ovoids can change into a total of 57 newly-defined Liquified Light Colors The space of the work is interactively transformed under the influence of the wind, rain & the behavior of the people in the space, making the environment & the people a part of the work. Amazing unique artโ€ผ๏ธ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

โ– Title of the work: Resonating Trees The trees shine brightly. The light of each tree is autonomous, slowly blinking The light transmitted from โ€œResonating Microcosms – Liquified Light Color, Sunrise & Sunsetโ€ causes the trees ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณโ€™ lights to change color & a tone specific to that color resonates out The light of a tree is transmitted to the surrounding trees ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ one by one, as the sound is continuously emitted. When a light resonates from the trees ๐ŸŒณ๐ŸŒณ in the distance, it signifies the presence of people. Perhaps people will become more aware of the existence of others in the same space
