Singer Mila Jirin glad to be back in business


SINGER and entrepreneur Mila Jirin is relieved that her catering business is gradually picking up again, Berita Harian reported.

“Thank God, this week we can resume operations after about 20 months of stagnant business,” she said, adding that bookings had begun to trickle in.

“We are almost fully booked until next month, and bookings for December and next year are slowly coming in,” she said.

Mila, 33, who has been running a catering business for the past decade, said she was thankful to be able to generate income again since the government eased Covid-19 movement restrictions.

Although she had suffered a loss in income, she said she was still taking care of the welfare of nearly 100 employees.

During the period when the business was not operating, she sold face masks, scarves and packed food.
