Deep interest in the field of bakery encourages this special education teacher to generate a side income every year before Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
Despite suffering from stage two cancer, for Nor Liyana Abdullah, 38, it is not an obstacle to pursue her interest.
She said that she needs to wisely divide his time between the actual task of teaching and the side job of producing biscuits.
“I split the time in the morning from 7am to 2pm I was at school. As soon as I get home from school I start being in the kitchen until 12.30am and depending on the number of bookings.
“For this Hari Raya order, I usually open orders for five types of biscuits, namely chocolate chip biscuits, Nilam Sari biscuits, pineapple tart biscuits, sugi biscuits and jering biscuits. The best-selling ones are the chocolate chip biscuits and Nilam Sari, which are always in demand from customers,” she said.
Nor Liyana Abdullah usually receives orders for around 50,000 biscuits or 1,000 jars of various types of biscuits.
She also uses his social media platforms such as Facebook and the WhatsApp application to order Hari Raya biscuits
