8 Essentials To Prepare Your House For Raya

1. Spring Cleaning Items

With the 10-pax rule, we can finally invite larger groups of friends and family over to our houses! Whether it’s for an iftar gathering or Raya, you’ll want to do some spring cleaning to welcome your guests and when the day’s done!

Wipe down surfaces with Dettol Anti-Bacterial Surface Cleaner Spray and clean up spills with Scott Virgin Fiber Kitchen Towels. Don’t miss out on other cleaning items that you can easily get on pandamart too, like Ajax Multi-Purpose Floor Cleaner Fabuloso Lavender Fresh 2L, Glo Dishwashing Liquid and more!

#HHWT Tip: Be sure to explore the Ramadan category on pandamart so it’s easy for you to browse through all the essentials you need. 

2. Cooking essentials

Ran out of ingredients but don’t have time to head to the supermarket? Don’t worry! All you have to do is browse through pandamart on the foodpanda app or website and get some of your staples like Adabi Ketupat Nasi Mini Rice Cubes or New Moon Premium Cooking Oil. Add flavour to your dishes with a wide range of soy sauces, oyster sauces or perhaps some Knorr Chicken Stock Cubes. 

If you’re looking to switch up your usual Raya dishes, why not whip up some kimchi fried rice with Sajo Halal Hot Pepper Paste (Gochujang). Did you know that you can also get fresh produce delivered to your doorstep from pandamart too? With over 5,000 products and 24/7 delivery, you can stock up on kitchen essentials anytime! 

3. Raya drinks

Stock up on drinks before your guests come over! By getting them delivered to your doorstep, you won’t need to carry those heavy cartons and bottles home. 

Pandamart has curated a list of beverages that are perfect for Hari Raya on the foodpanda app! 

From Coca-Cola series to Heaven & Earth’s tea drinks, Fanta, Minute Maid and more, there’ll be something for everyone.

4. Instant pastes 

Instant pastes are a life-saver as they’ll help you cut your meal prep time and save you all the hassle. This is especially so during Ramadan where you’re constantly busy with countless tasks. The good news is that pandamart has a wide range of them such as Asyura’s Lemak Cili Padi or Rendang paste, Adabi Kuah Kacang Satay Sauce and Ayam Brand Green Curry Paste among others. 

5. Baking essentials

Raya is approaching which means it’s time to bake your favourite kuih Raya! From Bake King’s flavourings/colourings to baking soda, SIS Fine Sugar, Prima’s flour series, Ayam Brand’s coconut milk and more, you can easily get them delivered to your doorstep. If you’re new to baking and need something simpler instead, check out the range of pre-mixes on pandamart too. For seasoned bakers that need specialised tools or ingredients, check out Bake with Yen, Wheat, BakerzMart and more on foodpanda shops.  

Or if you're too lazy to bake, get your cakes and kuehs sorted out with foodpanda shops. Why not try the halal-certified Cat & The Fiddle? First time customers on foodpanda shops can also enjoy $8 off $24 (terms and conditions apply).

6. Decorative items to spruce up your home 

It might be the first time you’re having guests over for Raya after two years! You’ll want to keep up the festive atmosphere with some decorative items such as the Hari Raya Pullout Garland - Star & Crescent from pandamart. Alternatively, recreate the vibes of the traditional lampu lap-lip (Raya lights) with some fairy lights. BLOOMS: BY M on foodpanda shops has some Bulb Fairy Lights (LED) that you can get. 

You’ll also want to keep your house smelling nice and fresh with diffusers and candles from pandamart. Check out To Be Calm’s range of reed diffusers and Hush’s essential oil candles to get your house Raya ready. 

7. Homeware

If you don’t have time to go shopping for new plates and glasses for Raya, fret not! You can stay home and browse through foodpanda shops. For minimalist-themed homeware, ToTT has a great selection! Their Cerabon Essentials plates and Evelin Polystyrene Glass Coasters would make amazing additions for Raya hosting. If you’re looking for something to store your kuih Raya, check out Miniso for their Wheat Food Container or Miniso Container. 

8. Raya treats and snacks 

Last but not least, what’s Raya without some yummy treats and snacks? If you’re not baking any treats of your own, you can always get them conveniently on pandamart and foodpanda shops. Check out Uncle Saba’s Poppadoms Hari Raya Gift Box and snack on some savoury goodness. Or browse through Serious Food Co’s range of cookies including White Choc Macadamia, Coconut Delight and Double Chocolate.
