Kaijia: What’s In Store For 2022?

Kaijia Muslim Food has been around for like 4 years, but we only got serious like last year. For our 5th year, we have humble plans to scaleup the business.

The Business

Our Eatery: 2022 is the year we expect to reopen our eatery at UTM, Skudai. BUT! Yes, there is a big BUT there. We intend to revamp our eatery. The plans are still in the drawing board as we type this out. Just stay tuned for updates on our website and social pages.

Our Products: So in 2021, we came up with our Chilli Oils, Garlic Oil, BBQ Oil Set, Fragrant Spiced Oil, Fragrant Chilli Oils, Guoba Snacks, Spices Range & Powdered Spices Range. That’s 8 different types of products, not including the variations under each product category!

For 2022, we decided to tone down a bit and come up with 5 new products, insha’Allah. We already have the 5 products and all of those products are still undergoing R&D, We hope to launch 3 products in the first quarter of 2022, while the other 2 products would be launched by the third quarter.

Our Social Pages: We decided to be more focused on what type of content goes on our social pages. Here’s the breakdown

  • Facebook – mainly for sharing blog posts & Instagram feeds
  • Instagram – mainly for cooking ideas, serving suggestions, events, & updates
  • TikTok – mainly for recipes & cooking ideas

Which one will we be more active in?

Instagram for DMs, TikTok for comments.

The Website

Our Content: Regular content like the monthly link-roundups, new Chinese Muslim restaurants and food businesses, and our personal reviews will still be around. However, we’ll be adding sponsored content and our TikTok channel recipe content.

Sponsored Content: What is this about? We’ve been getting feedback from people asking us whether they could advertise or get featured on our website. The quick answer is YES. But obviously, there are areas we need to discuss further.

Like are you looking at us to write a blog post on your restaurant? Do you want us to review your product? Are you looking for free advertising? How much do we charge? What are our working terms?

To make things easier, just contact us for more details. We will answer all your questions, explain to you about our terms and come up with an arrangement that benefits both of us. And we promise we won’t bite (unless you send us your food product, which we’d happily chomp down)

TikTok Recipe Content: So if you’ve been following our TikTok account and are eager to get the recipes, you will soon be able to get it on our website. We’ll be including little anecdotes, stories, and cooking tips too.

What’s with the TikTok recipe content?

Besides running a Chinese Muslim food business, we’re just a couple of home cooks with a passion to share the little knowledge we have cooking our favourite meals. Just because we run a business, doesn’t mean we must always share about our business, do we? Sometimes, it’s nice to share our passion and knowledge with others.

That’s about it really. Do you have any big plans for 2022? Let us know in the comments section.

Happy 2022!

Kaijia: Are We Open For Business?

We’ve been receiving enquiries asking whether we’ve reopened our eatery at UTM, Skudai.

At the moment, our eatery is still closed. However we do intend to reopen in the first quarter of 2022, insha’Allah.

Are you going to sell the same products?

The answer is no as we will be doing a complete revamp of our eatery. We’ve been ramping up efforts to come up with the new concept as well as a new menu for the past few months. In fact, we are still doing it.

New year, new start, new concept, new menu. Just run by the same people and possibly a greater level of awesomeness.

In the meantime, be sure to follow our social pages for updates!

How To Use Kaijia Products?

How to use Kaijia products?

If you have been following our social pages, then you’d know we often share ways and ideas on how to enjoy our China-style Chinese Muslim products. However, we reckon it’d take a while for you to search through the posts.

As an added feature for our buyers (and potential buyers), we decided to curate those posts and share it right here on our blog. Take it like a one-stop-location for easy reference.

The icing on the cake? Rather than writing it out, we thought it’d be better to share the images. Makes it easier for you to download and save the ones you’re interested to try or share around.

Let’s go!

We’ll be adding more to the list as we go along, so remember to bookmark this page!

Lastly, take care everyone & stay safe!

Kaijia: Powdered Spices Range

In case you haven’t heard, we recently launched our powdered spices range!

For now, we are offering the following spices on our Shopee store:

  • Sichuan Peppercorns 花椒
  • Black Cardamom 草果
  • Star Anise 八角
  • Cinnamon 桂皮

These are the spices we often use when we cook Chinese Muslim food, such as Dapanji 大盘鸡 and our ever popular Chilli Oil.

So, which is our favourite?

Definitely the Sichuan peppercorns! It’s a prized ingredient because back in the day, it wasn’t easy to find authentic Sichuan peppercorns in the market.

Need ideas on how to use Sichuan peppercorns? Here are some amazing articles for you to read: 20 Great Ways to Use Sichuan Peppercorns, Best Szechuan recipes and 12 Top Recipes with Szechuan Peppers.

Quick note from us, always be wary of unethical sellers out there. Over the years, we’ve experienced getting Sichuan peppercorns mixed with something else, making it questionable for consumption. That’s one of the reasons why we decided to come up with our kitchen essentials range of powdered and non-powdered spices.

How about the non-powdered versions?

We’ll be selling the non-powdered versions of Sichuan peppercorns, black cardamom, star anise, and cinnamon too! You’ll be able to purchase those on our Shopee store by this weekend, insha’Allah. We could have listed those sooner but we were occupied with Eid preparations.

That wraps up our post for today!

Kaijia: Hari Raya Gift Ideas

How’s your Ramadan going?

Ours have been pretty good so far, Alhamdulillah. It’s been raining on a daily basis, making the weather more cooling and fasting more bearable.

But with the new norm, obviously this year’s Ramadan is unlike pre-pandemic years. Nevertheless, we are thankful with everything we have been blessed with. On a personal note, Alhamdulillah this year we get to celebrate Ramadan with more family members.

We also managed to secure a pop-up stand at Bazaar Ramadan Fourty 5, located at the carpark area opposite Kuu Van Cha 古文茶, nearby to Perling Mall.

While we’re at it, we’re currently running 10% cashback and RM40 Free Shipping promotions on our Shopee store. Ramadan is the time to spread goodness and happiness, so we thought it’d be great to offer our buyers additional perks during this festive occasion. It’s our way of thanking our buyers for supporting us all this while.

The promotions only last for a couple more weeks or so, so hurry up and place your order at our Shopee store! You may also reach us online via our website and social media platforms.

Have a good Friday!
