9th May (this coming Wednesday) is set to be a momentous day for Malaysians. No, it’s not because Bruno Mars is coming to perform. Most of us are anticipating the 14th Malaysian general election (GE14/ PRU14) that will effect the entire nation.
To celebration this occasion, several food franchises have decided to treat Malaysian voters with some yummilicious special offerings. Who doesn’t like being offered free food and drinks right? Once you’ve fulfil your duty as a citizen, go treat yourself by showing your “inked finger” as proof.
1. The BIG Group
Free Nasi Lemak and Teh Tarik anyone?
“Show us your inked finger and enjoy Nasi Lemak and Teh Tarik on us. No strings attached! Limited to the first 200 redemptions at participating outlets only,” reads the statement by The BIG Group.
To ease things, here are the participating outlets under The BIG Group:
- Plan B – Publika, Midvalley, Ipoh
- Ben’s – Pavilion, KLCC, Gardens, Publika, BSC
- Ben’s General Food Store (BGFS) – Batai, GLO, Publika
2. Meet Mee
Not keen on Nasi Lemak? No problem! Noodle chain Meet Mee will also be offering free bowls of delicious Pan Mee to voters. Priced between RM8.20 and RM8.80, you can enjoy these authentic Pan Mee (regular portions) at these 3 branches: Desa Setapak, Danau Kota, and Sungai Long.
3. EPiC Fit Meals Co
“I realised a lot of people around me are not interested in voting. So, I thought to myself, what better way to encourage them than (with) free burgers,” co-founder of EPiC Fit Meals Co. Lai Wick Kee was quoted as saying.
Adopting the tagline, “If you care enough to vote, we care enough to give you a free burger”, all voters can opt to dine-in or take-away a free ‘chummy’ burger. Get your hands on a free burger at either Damansara Perdana, Bandar Sunway, or Mont Kiara between 11am to 10:30pm while stocks last.
4. Dave’s Deli Malaysia
Craving for some dessert? The first 100 dine-in customers at Dave’s Deli will get to enjoy a free brownie. This offer is valid at all outlets nationwide.
5. Eng Chun Bak Kut Teh
If your polling station is located in Klang, then you may as well take the opportunity and enjoy a hearty meal. “I hope that this small token of appreciation will encourage the people, especially those who are coming back from afar,” restaurant owner Yong Jin Ng told New Straits Times. The eatery will be giving out 500 bowls (each bowl cost RM11) at Taman Berkeley and Taman Sentosa.
6. San Francisco Coffee Co.
Slurp on the ultimate Mocha tomorrow! Originally priced at RM17 (regular size), this yummy indulgence will only cost RM10 for one day only.
