51-year-old Rohaizan Hassan is selling 50 cents roti canai at his humble stall in Kampung Chendering, Kuala Terengganu. In his interview with Sinar Harian, he said he has received backlash from his people, saying selling roti canai at a measly price would bear him no fruits. But Rohaizan has a strong faith that everyone receives blessings in different ways by God and he wants to help the less fortunate so they could afford to buy his roti canai.
With the increasing cost of living, it’s close to impossible to sell anything below 50 cents but Rohaizan is making it possible. This way, large families with an unstable financial status could afford to feed their children. He further explained that the major reason why he decided to sell roti canai this cheap and that’s because he dedicates his business in memory of his late son, who passed away in an accident while delivering pizza in 2019.
If you're ever in Kuala Terengganu, do head over to this stall to have a taste of his hot and freshly made roti canai to start your day. The stall operates from 8.30am - 11.00pm and since roti canai is versatile, you'd only have to pay up to RM2.50 for flavours like roti telur, roti bomb kaya or roti 'double' telur.
