"22 years ago, I delivered my first child. I went back to my hometown and asked my mom to find a 'tukang urut' for my 'pantang' (confinement). Everyday, I had to wait for my mom to come back from her office, then my dad will send me to the masseuse's house, while my mom will take care of the baby. How inconvenient!One day, the old lady (midwife) was massaging my back with her foot and slipped because of the oily surface. I almost fractured by back bone and was in and out of hospital for six months. I don't ever want any new mothers to experience the same thing, so I decided to start Pantang Plus.I used to be in banking for 15 years, so I am quite exposed to the corporate world. But I was still not prepared to become an entrepreneur - I was always scared, I was not a risk taker.MaGIC has provided me the best environment to grow. It is the best place to learn and mingle as they provided us with a supportive environment. Not to mention, being surrounded by entrepreneurs with similar mindsets from different industries, where we are all there to learn and take our businesses further. Mana you nak cari tempat macam tu?The best part was the mentors who have really helped me mold my business. They drive you to where you should be, not where you think you want to be. And in the end, I am very grateful that I am able to help mothers, not just in Malaysia, but all around the globe too."
