Housewife Suhana Shuib, 42, finds a profitable way to kill two birds with one stone. For over a year now, she supports her family while contributing to the community at the same time.
Suhana sells nasi lemak at RM2 a packet. Besides nasi lemak, she too sells porridge inspired by the famous ‘Bubur Ayam McD’.
Her signature nasi lemak comes with a generous serving of fragrant steamed rice cooked in coconut milk, a half piece of hard-boiled egg, freshly-sliced cucumber, fried anchovies and fried groundnuts. Her aromatic sambal is the one that draws the crowd. The RM2 price tag is definitely a ‘steal’.
Suhana or Makcik Ana, as she prefers to be addressed, sells spiced fried chicken at RM3 apiece. Customers often buy her nasi lemak with a piece of her fried chicken.
‘’It’s not difficult to find stalls that sell packed food for RM2 but, I bet, it’s not as good as mine,’’ she said in jest.
Her quaint little stall operates daily between 6.15pm and 10pm. If you are keen to try what she has to offer, look out for her stall located in front of Lahat’s 99 Speedmart. You can’t miss it, as there will be people milling around it.
