20yo Started a Kedai Bundle & Now Owner of a Brand New House & Car!
Muhammad Asyraf Khairul Anuar started off his bundle business fresh after SPM with only RM100 in capital from which he improved coast to coast and through his consistent efforts, he buys a house and car!
In our life, we all dream to do something big, fantasize our world and set our goals.
Muhammad Asyraf Khairul Anuar dreamt big for himself and started achieving his goals. He was just 17 when he started his Kedai Bundle. And while it may be a messy business having to dig through pre-loved clothes and accessories to find that one desirable item, you never know how profitable the business can be.
For Asyraf, who is barely 20-years-old this year, running such a business has proven to be more lucrative than we all could imagine!
Already an owner of a house and a car of his own, Asyraf has since been working as a personal shopper for people who want to buy luxury goods from Japan. However, it’s not all been rosy for him, who hails from Klang, starting off in the local ‘bundle’ business.
The ‘bundle‘ business, for those who aren’t familiar, is essentially Malaysia’s equivalent of thrift shopping. The reason why its called ‘bundle‘ is due to how pre-loved clothing tends to be shipped to Malaysia in large sacks, and thrift store owners would tend to buy them by the bundle for a flat price, without knowing what is inside.
“With what capital I had, I bought Internet top-ups to browse Instagram and analyzed how some bundle stores operated and promoted themselves. Whatever I had remainder, I used to purchase used clothing from other bundle shops and sold a few pieces through Instagram. I didn’t expect them to sell out in under a week.” he mentioned in an interview with Harian Metro
But while his bundle business offered stable income, his real stroke of luck happened when he became a personal shopper for luxury designer items in Japan, a market which was incredibly profitable given how many vintage collectors were willing to pay him for his items.
THE WOW MOMENT
In fact, in 2019, he was able to save up to RM200,000 in profit from his sales buying and selling pre-loved designer items to collectors. Now, he owns his own house, which he bought for his family, and a car of his own too. His inspiring story has since gone viral over Malaysian social media, gaining over 8,000 retweets since it was uploaded. The journey of Asyraf becoming an entrepreneur was definitely not easy, he failed but didn’t stop, he tried again and achieved his milestone.

We wish to thank Asyraf for being an inspiration to all of us out there!
