PETALING JAYA: Covid-19 may have clipped his wings, but grounded pilot Azrin Mohamad Zawawi has vowed to continue to soar.
Instead of hanging up his uniform, Azrin is wearing it with pride under a red apron as he mans a food stall in Subang preparing northern delicacies for his customers.
While it may just be a roadside stall, he puts in every effort to make it presentable.
Naming his stall "Kapten Corner", Azrin offers such dishes as Ipoh curry mee, mee hoon soup, laksa utara and rojak buah.
His father Mohamad Zawawi Ahmad is supportive of his son's endeavour to weather the difficult times, encouraging his friends to enjoy a meal at Azrin's stall in Boom Town USJ11.
"He doesn't know when he will be donning the uniform again as a pilot as nobody knows the future of the aviation industry.To all friends, please visit his stall for a sumptuous meal," Zawawi said in a post on Facebook on Tuesday (Nov 3).
Malaysians who have read Zawawi's post praised Azrin's enterprising spirit and encouraged him to continue with his new venture.
One of them said that Zawawi was a good role model to all working class Malaysians, while another said he was a sensible and responsible pilot who dared to be different.
