Malaysia’s favourite national motorcyclist Azlan Shah Kamaruzaman made it clear that there is nothing to be ashamed about being a food delivery guy. In fact, he is more than happy to do work that allows him to continue riding a motorcycle as it has become a habit and passion for most national riders.
According to Harian Metro, when the national racing calendar came to a halt due to the current pandemic, Azlan said he chose to help out his family business, Santai Brooo, of selling nasi ayam penyet by delivering it to areas around Kuala Lumpur and Shah Alam, Selangor.
The former national Moto2 rider said he got the idea to be a food delivery rider during the last Movement Control Order (MCO). He was wary that many could not go out to get food for themselves so he asked himself why not become the ‘delivery boy’ and deliver food to customers’ houses.
“I am not ashamed. This is a family business. For me, I don’t care what job it is as long as the income is pure, clean, and legal then I am happy to work like this. I can still ride a motorcycle and explore new roads that I have never been to before,” he said.
In fact, this delivery job made him happy and gave him sweet memories because many messages were from fans who have asked him to send the food.

“I have gotten a lot of requests asking me to send the food myself because they would like to meet me upfront. My fans are the one who gives a lot of support for the sale of this food. There are times where there were orders up to 40 to 50 containers a day,” he said.
He continued to add on, “So far the demand we have received is very encouraging. Sometimes, my wife and sister have to go out to deliver the food too.”
However, Azlan also shared that he had also experienced bitter moments as a food delivery guy when he had no choice but to go through the rain to ensure that the orders are sent to the customers at the promised time.
“Everyone is currently facing a difficult period of time. Many people have lost their jobs. The whole world is facing Covid-19 and it is not an easy challenge for us to face,” he said.
“However, we have to get up and stand together. It’s just like my business too. There are days when it is little and they are days when there is more,” he added on.
He also shared more about his experience through a video on Santai Brooo’s FB page.
