About 30 people has turned up for the preview yesterday. This is almost double than the number of people who have turned up during the September preview as at that time the nation was hit by sudden fuel price increase. My staff, Sharizal and I were also present to lend them a helping hand.

Six people have signed up on the spot and a few more took back the application forms to submit at a later date. It was a success in terms of sign-up compared with the attendance.
