The Movement Control Order (MCO) presents a hard time for a lot of folks but in order to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, it has to be done. Regardless, all sorts of folks are taking the time to help those in need in whatever situation they are in, including Malaysian astronaut, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor.
His latest Instagram posts say it all; a man with experience and knowledge some of us can only dream of but chose to remain humble despite the hardship. Being the co-owner of Restoran Rebung, a popular dining establishment made famous by celebrity chef, Chef Ismail, he’s seen delivering orders personally to customers on Malaysia’s beloved cub, the Honda EX-5.

Pic – Being a delivery Boy Not many knew that I co-own Rebung Restaurant with Chef Ismail way back since 2003 and it has bloomed ever since . I remembered going to Pasar Borong Selayang at 0400 am during those days buying fresh seafood everyday for the past 6 months during our start up . I remembered sending Lemang & Rendang & Dodol in the wee hours of morning Raya for the past 2 years . Those were the days. And Alhamdulillah – after 17 years Rebung still standing strong with 80 staffs achieving many Awards – Best Malay Food for 5 consecutive years . We even shifted from Bangsar Park to Botanical Park in 2018 for a more spacious 5 storey parking space and could accommodate upto 500 pax . – Syukur Alhamdulillah … I’m a man who is passionate on food . And Rebung is focused on Authentic Malay Food especially Negeri Sembilan . There’s no doubt the food is mouth watering – Haha puji Restaurant sendiri . We started opening again last week during this MCO and I personally put my feet on the ground to deliver food . Memang Best . Just sharing . Salam Everyone … Love As Always … @rebung_taman_botani For order kindly WhatsApp 011 2790 6993 PS – Anyone been to Rebung ? Do share – TQ

The rest of the post went on about the progress of his restaurant (very strong yet smart self-promotion) but the point is, a man who has been to outer space is showing characteristics that are very much down to earth, doing whatever it takes to make it work. We salute you, Dr Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor, and we wish you all the best.
For those who are fasting throughout Ramadhan, we wish you a happy and safe Ramadhan Kareem. Hopefully, after Hari Raya Aidilfitri, we can catch up once again for during those weekend rides we all yearn for and miss. Happy fasting to all our Muslim brothers and sisters!
