It’s unfortunate that Malaysians can’t go home for the holidays this Raya.
To miss their loved ones so dearly and the sights and sounds of joyous festivities must be especially painful.
In the spirit of MyTOWN Shopping Centre’s #MyMalaysiaBoleh belief, we, Your Maker, as their ever-ready-to-do-more agency, set out to help two deserving Malaysians miss kampung a little less.
Koperal Mohammad Hafiz, part of PDRM and Ashurhanna Saleh, an Assistant Medical Officer, were going to experience a taste of home, even though they are in town serving their nation to the best of their abilities.
With the help of someone with interstate travel permission, we managed to ‘tapau’ the frontliners’ sorely-missed Raya favourites and surprised them with it, with help from their families, of course.
We documented the result with our phones, and made Malaysians, regardless of our cultural differences, shed a tear or two. Because the desire to be with the ones we love, especially now when we really want to be there for them, is not lost on the ones who have watched, and will watch, our film.
People behind the film:
Koperal Mohammad Hafiz
Dewa Bin Abdul Wahab (Hafiz’s Father)
Rawiah Binti Ahmad (Asnurhanna’s Mother)
