[TEST] M’sians Share 5 Nifty Ways They’ve Been Celebrating Special Occasions While Staying At Home

Wob Jinro Feat 2

Whenever we want to celebrate special events, we often think about lavish parties or eating at the fanciest restaurant that we can barely afford. But with the current MCO, most Malaysians have no other choice than to come up with other solutions to celebrate the special events we’ve got going on in our lives. After all, just because we’re stuck at home doesn’t mean we can’t have a good time, right?

So read on to find out a few nifty ways that Malaysians can opt to celebrate special occasions in a new norm way.


1. Serving a DIY all-you-can-eat hotpot buffet


The best way to celebrate something is always with good food! And nothing beats the good and hearty hotpot meal. Unfortunately, we’re no longer allowed to dine in-stores. Thus, why not just make your own hotpot party? It’s delicious, more cost-effective and you won’t have to worry about any time limit so you can really enjoy the meal. Plus, the steaming hotpot would go perfectly with some chilled bottles of soju! Now that sounds like a celebration! 

You can get one of these 2-in-1 grills for quite an affordable price online and voila! Want to have hotpot every day also can!



2. Laying out a cute picnic set up in your own yard

This one’s perfect for when you’re in the mood to have an outdoor celebration (even if it is just in your own backyard or balcony).

Having one of these aesthetic picnics is quite the trend right now. Even though you can’t have it outdoors at a nice park, who says you can’t have it outside of your house? Here’s what you need to get started:

… and a whole lot of food! If you feel like the weather is a bit hot outside, make sure to also get some chilled drinks to enjoy. Our favourite would be a nice bottle of soju. There’s no better way to cool down on a hot day!

Not only is this fun but it also makes a very pleasing addition for the ‘gram. 😉


3. Creating your own cinema-at-home with a projector


Do you miss the cinema? Surprisingly, it’s not that hard to recreate your own at-home theatre. All you really need is a projector and a blank wall! Nowadays, you can get a really decent mini projector for less than RM150!

Once you’ve got that setup, you can dim the lights and recreate your very own private cinema! It’ll be the perfect backdrop for when you want to kick back, chill and enjoy a drink or two. Imagine what a romantic set-up this would be, perfect for an intimate celebration for anniversaries or a significant other’s birthday. 😍

4. Hosting a virtual tournament with your friends

Thanks to technology, we can still hang out and celebrate with our friends virtually. But instead of just talking to each other on Zoom, why not make it more interesting and play some games instead! You can even make a virtual tournament out of it where the winner can win a special prize. Some games you can check out:

  • Play drinking games where you can have fun and also chill with a nice, cold drink
  • Bingo is an easy crowd-pleaser especially if you’re with a big group
  • Virtual Murder Mystery games where you need to solve mysteries together


5. Making a surprise delivery to your loved ones

If you’re living away from your family or friends, it’s pretty sad that we can’t celebrate special occasions with them in person. However, you can still show your love by sending a surprise delivery to them. Not only are you sending a gift, but it will also let them know that you’ll still be there with them in spirit. Some gifts you can consider sending:

  • Order their favourite food from a restaurant they always frequent
  • Send a hamper filled with their favourite dessert goodies
  • Flower deliveries are also a great option especially for your parents

At the end of the day, we’re pretty sure that they will appreciate anything you send. After all, it’s the thought that matters most! If you’re still unsure of what to send, why not just send over a few nice drinks? If you’re wondering what would be the perfect beverage to send over, we’d definitely recommend delivering some Jinro Soju! It’s a perfect way to encourage them to ‘relax, chill and enjoy!’ especially with the stress of WFH these days.

In case you didn’t know, Jinro Soju is the no. 1 bestselling spirit for 20 consecutive years & it’s the perfect refreshing drink for Malaysians!

What’s great about Jinro is that it is refined using a bamboo charcoal filter and it is also made cleaner with only carefully-selected additives. As a result, you can enjoy a soft and clean taste with every sip.

There are also seven different delicious flavours to try:

  • Chamisul Original – containing a higher ABV, the classic flavour that is a favourite among those who enjoy rich, authentic taste of soju.
  • Chamisul Fresh – this flavour utilises only vegetable-based additives, making the taste lighter and milder compared to the Original flavour.
  • Jinro Green Grape – a very easy-to-drink flavour that offers a fresh clean taste, perfect for those who aren’t heavy drinkers.
  • Jinro Grapefruit – the addition of grapefruit creates a fresh and healthy flavour, making it irresistable to anyone.
  • Jinro Plum – the Jinro Plum has a sweet and clean taste which is a delight to drink, especially if you’re a sweet tooth.
  • Jinro Strawberry – the newest fruity flavour introduces a lighter yet sweet taste that is sure to be a refreshing twist.
  • Jinro Is Back – to commemorate its legacy, Jinro Is Back introduces a vintage 70’s style packaging with its sky blue bottles that is sure to catch the attention of young, trendy drinkers.

Apart from being the drink of choice for special occasions, soju is also great to drink when you’re hanging out with friends or even for nights when you’re just in the mood to chillax. It’s also super heavenly when you pair it with foods like Korean BBQ, fried chicken, instant ramyeon noodles or other light snacks.

No need to travel all the way to South Korea, just one sip of Jinro and you’ll feel like you’re already there! 

Wait, we have more good news! Jinro will be having a special Merdeka promo that you won’t want to miss!
