A really good post about Malaysia.

In the blink of an eye, we have been in the pandemic battle for over a year. Throughout this one year, it was no easy feat for a majority of us as some industries are forced to go on a hiatus. As this happens, many Malaysians face retrenchment. So is this flight crew couple who lost their jobs in the aviation industry. Now, they’ve started their own Nasi Lemak Wakzee stall in MS Food Court, Penang.

Nasi Lemak Wakzee: A Business Run By Ex-Flight Crew In Penang

Hana and Zee both worked for Malindo Air; Hana was a flight attendant while Zee was in flight catering. Last year, the couple were unfortunately retrenched because of the dip in the aviation industry.

But this did not hold them back, they came out stronger by starting up their very own business selling Nasi Lemak. Named Nasi Lemak Wakzee, this micro-business is managed by the couple and Hana’s mother. Utilizing her bilingual skills, Hana converses fluently in the Hokkien dialect, English, and Malay to customers.
