This year, KitKat ® is introducing the limited-edition Raya KitKat ® Ketupat, which provides consumers with the ideal balance of creamy milk chocolate and crispy wafer encased in a brand-new “Ketupat” motif stamped onto the KitKat ® 4-Fingers chocolate bars. A traditional Ramadan and Hari Raya treat, ketupat is made of compressed cooked rice and wrapped in woven coconut leaves. The intricate Ketupat weaving pattern also symbolises Silaturrahim, a form of good relationships and friendship that is honoured in Islamic traditions as well as Malaysian culture, representing the “Rezeki Dikongsi Bersama” campaign’s spirit. On the basis of this idea, the KitKat ® Ketupat seeks to inspire Malaysians to share their “rezeki” with everyone by bringing love, joy, and togetherness into a many homes during the Raya celebrations.

The four distinctive collectible designs of the Raya limited-edition KitKat ® Ketupat, each of which highlights significant Raya traditions, make it the ideal Raya gift to share and “cele-break” with friends and family. There are two different pack sizes for the KitKat ® Ketupat: the KitKat ® Ketupat 4-Fingers Multipack of 4 and the KitKat ® Ketupat 4-Fingers Multipack of 2.

In addition, KitKat ® and Mimpikita have teamed up to release the limited-edition KitKat® x Mimpikita Raya Edition pack, which comes with two packs of KitKat ® Mini 9g Sharebags and a specially created Luminarc drinking glass from Mimpikita. These chic glass mugs are offered in three different, one-of-a-kind designs.

Nabila Razali and MK K-Clique performing the KitKat ® “Rezeki DiKongsi Bersama” theme song

Support from Local Celebrities
Two local celebrities, MK K-Clique and Nabila Razali, performed the KitKat ® “Rezeki Dikongsi Bersama” theme song that is featured in KitKat ®‘s most recent Raya animated music video at the KitKat ® “Rezeki Dikongsi Bersama” Raya campaign launch event. The animated music video for the Raya holiday from KitKat ® honours all the special moments that bring people together during the festive season while embodying the values of the Ramadan and Raya seasons. The characters on the KitKat ® Ketupat packaging, which represent diversity, community, and the joy of sharing “rezeki,” served as the inspiration for the animated music video.

I am honoured to be back again and be part of the KitKat ® “Rezeki Dikongsi Bersama” campaign together with Nabila Razali this year. We hope this song will liven up the spirit of Ramadan and Hari Raya for everyone this year.

Poached Chicken Pumpkin Mee Sua with Love Earth Mushroom Seasoning

Chinese wheat noodles known as mee sua are thin and are frequently used in soups and stir-fries. It is well-known for its delicate texture and mild flavour and is a common comfort food in many Asian countries. In this recipe, I will be using Love Earth Pumpkin Mee Sua (mix), which comes in four mixed flavors – original, pumpkin, spinach, and beetroot, pairs well with savory flavors like chicken and mushrooms.

Poach chicken thighs first, that’s what you’ll need to do. By gently simmering food in water until it is thoroughly cooked, you can prepare food by poaching. Because this recipe calls for moist, tender chicken, poaching is a great way to maintain those qualities. Poach the chicken thigh for eight minutes. The chicken should then be taken out of the pot and submerged for a short while in ice water. By doing so, you’ll be able to stop the cooking process and preserve the chicken’s juicy texture.

Time to prepare the Mee Sua now. The four mixed flavours of Love Earth Mee Sua are original, pumpkin, spinach, and beetroot. I am using the pumpkin flavour in this recipe. Just boil the mee sua in the chicken broth for about 3 minutes. Remember to add in Love Earth Mushroom Seasoning into the soup to taste. Once the mee sua is cooked, serve it in a bowl and add in vegetable and the poached chicken.

This recipe is an excellent choice for a quick and simple lunch or dinner. Additionally, it is a nutrient-dense meal that is high in protein, fibre, and vitamins. A delicious umami flavour is added by the Love Earth Mushroom Seasoning, and the pumpkin Mee Sua is a distinctive and delectable take on a traditional dish.


  • 1 chicken thigh
  • 1 Love Earth Mee Sua
  • Love Earth Mushroom Seasoning, to taste
  • 4 cups of water
  • Ice water
  • Vegetables of your choice


  1. Bring water to a boil in a pot.
  2. Add in the chicken thigh and let it poach for 8 minutes.

  4. Cook the Love Earth Mee Sua (Pumpkin) in the chicken broth for 3 minutes.
  5. Add Love Earth Mushroom Seasoning to taste.
  6. Cook until mee sua is cooked.
