Why is Bagaimana dengan awak hari ini necessary when we have apa khabar as they both meant the same thing?

Apa khabar is a casual form of greeting which is suitable even for strangers

Bagaimana dengan awak hari ini is a more conscientious way of asking one’s well being especially useful in counselling, tender, loving and care situations at home, or simply displaying attentiveness for a person more than a quick ceremonial act.

For clarification

-kah may be equivalent to isn’t it

Dia Ahmadkah ? > He is Ahmad isn’t he?

Awak Junkah? > You are Jun aren’t you?

Ya, saya Jun. or

Bukan, saya bukan Jun, saya Julai.
