The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - WOMAN -

“My hus­band’s land was de­stroyed in 2008, his losses ran into tens of thou­sands of dol­lars. So in­stead of tak­ing on work­ers to help bring in the har­vest, we the fam­ily brought in the crops on our own. This saved us a lot of money, but it was a huge chal­lenge for us. I love bak­ing, so I started to use our crops, such as spinach and wheat, to make pas­tries and sell them. This has been a suc­cess and now I’m re­ceiv­ing or­ders for big events. I’m proud of the many com­pli­ments I re­ceive for my prod­ucts.”
