Alumni - Owner of Two Chicken Rice Shops - Kar Heong

Shireen Tan Pei Mun

My family owns two chicken rice shops called Kar Heong, which I manage alongside them. This routine has encouraged my passion for the food and beverage industry.

On top of this, I founded a small shelter for strays named Dog ‘Appy to help some furry kids in the Setia Alam neighbourhood while pursuing a part-time Master of Business Administration for my personal development. Balancing work, study and family is not easy but I hold on to the saying, “When the going gets tough, the tough get going.“

I love the satisfaction of having sought what I desire. Many possibilities that were given to me through my Diploma in Hotel Management and BSc (Hons) in International Hospitality Management, at Sunway University, built my faith to constantly invest in my dreams.
