Very soon, she took on the adventure to grow the locally based family business for nationwide expansion. She tailor-made her very first blazer and embarked on the journey up north to cold call on approach potential customers in Kuala Lumpur, all by herself at the age of 19. Even without the convenience of google map or waze at that point of time, she was strongly determined to navigate around the unfamiliar roads outstation using only hard copy map. Her go-getter personality pushed her through hours after hours of waiting at customers’ site for pitching opportunity, after which, most of them has become some of her longest-standing customers till today.
