The Alamanda Shopping Centre (Alamanda) will be hosting a three-week campaign from now until 16 September 2020 to commemorate the 63rd Independence Day on 31 August as well as 57th Malaysia Day on 16 September. The Merdeka campaign will offer something to shoppers, families and the community starting with the VIKids art contest which ended recently. The theme for the VIKids Art contest is based on the 63rd Merdeka and shoppers at Alamanda will have the chance to choose the winners from the 20 finalists of two age groups: Category 1 (7-9 years old) and Category 2 (10-12 years old). 

Alamanda will update shoppers’ votes by 10am daily (from 24 August to 13 September 2020) on a screen near to the artwork displays, apart from being published on Facebook and its website. The mall management will finalize the votes by 15 September 2020 and parents of the finalists will be contacted to inform them of their exciting prizes i.e.: 

To inject some spirit of unity during the Merdeka celebrations, Alamanda will be raising funds amounting to RM10,000 to purchase teatime snacks for staff and medical frontliners of a the government hospital in Putrajaya. Each time a shopper redeems a limited-edition Merdeka Tshirt and vote for the VIKids art contest, Alamanda will donate RM10 to the “Tribute Fund” for the benefit of the frontliners. To get the exclusive T-shirt, a shopper only needs to spend at least RM500 in not more than 3 receipts at any Alamanda specialty store from 24 August to 16 September 2020. Redemption must be made on the day of purchase, while stocks last. To make the gesture even more meaningful, every shopper who has voted may also sign their names on an A2-sized “Thank you Greeting Card” to be delivered to the hospital together with the teatime snacks. Andrew Brien, CEO of Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd said, “For this year’s Merdeka celebration, Alamanda has decided to provide a blend of distinctly Malaysian elements that come together to lend the right vibe, while ensuring the safety of shoppers as we embrace the theme of Malaysia Prihatin which emphasizes the spirit of patriotism, unity and love for the country.” 

Shoppers who redeem the exclusive T-shirt and vote on weekdays (Monday - Thursday, excluding public holidays) also stand a chance to win RM200 worth of MPH cash vouchers through our Weekday Lucky Bonus (24 August - 10 September). 

A total of three MPH cash vouchers, each worth RM200 will be offered through lucky draws conducted at 3pm on 11 September 2020. Winners will be notified to collect their prizes on 16 September 2020.
