In March 2005 we opened our own restaurant in Mersing, Malaysia. In September 2011 we moved to Kota Bharu, where we took over a Pizzeria Traudi. I have been taking care of the books, of our promotion and advertising activities, and I help where help is needed. The restaurant in Kota Bharu is still operating, but my job is only part-time and I'm looking for a possibility to earn some extra money online.
