Ex-Flight Crew Couple Opens Nasi Lemak Stall In Penang After Being Retrenched Due To Pandemic

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.

Named Nasi Lemak Wakzee, this micro-business is managed by the couple and Hana’s mother.
