One year on…COVID-19 is still very much around. Like many others, we have not been spared of the effects of the pandemic.
Its been a while since our last post. Somehow, the pandemic has taken quite a bit of our strength. This is our second Ramadan celebrating in the new normal.
By now, many already know that we had lost RUANG Subang Jaya to COVID. It is really sad because it was there that things began from scratch. We did not know what to expect but it went pretty well until the emergence of MCO after MCO. Anyway, we are at the point where we have to be practical rather than sentimental.
If you look at it in many many ways, yes, the pandemic has done nothing but mostly harm to a whole lot of people. Many lost their jobs, homes, businesses. Tourism, events industry are among the many many industries badly affected by it.
But, nothing good comes out from dwelling on the impact it has on you. No good will come out from crying that RUANG Subang, our first baby is no more. When you reflect, it actually gives you another opportunity. An opportunity to re-do. An opportunity to re-evaluate. An opportunity to reset. An opportunity to offer a deal that was so affordable to our clients. http://www.ruang.com.my/promotion
The pandemic has taught us to prioritise our needs against our wants. Taught us to be mindful of our spending. Taught us to be stronger in adversity. Even taught us to make our own bread or sagu gula melaka (haha). Well, everyone did look at this video over and over again before trying https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F9heaUkOtP4
All in all, we have to remember that everything happens for a reason and surely good things are on its way.
We feel that we need to share this message as an encouragement to others since we too lost our precious Ruang Subang.
If you are a struggling entrepreneur, business, do not give up! Look around you and find something you can benefit from. Restructure your finances, rearrange your strategy and most importantly, ADMIT that you are in trouble and do the necessary actions to save you.
We would be in denial if we still keep all our outlets. The rising cases, the never ending MCOs just doesn’t add up. Sometimes, letting go is the best thing to do.
So we did just that. We hope and pray we and everyone affected will recover slowly but surely. May God eases it for us all and may He takes the virus away.
Take care everyone.
