KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 23 — Former technician Ahmad Sholehin Sarji used to be able to sell 60 to 80 packets of curry noodles daily when he first started operations in March.

Following the reimplementation of the conditional movement control order (CMCO) on October 14, his sister, Adila Syuaira, 24, said it reduced sales to as low as two packets a day.

She told mStar it was then that she took to Twitter, to promote her brother’s business.

“He had wanted to give up and said wanted to look for another job but I encouraged him to continue.”

“After the post went viral, we even received orders from outside of Kuala Lumpur,” Adila added, noting that 26 people even donated money to her brother.

“We used the donated money and sent mi kari to an orphanage at Taman Medan.”
