This long-overdue COVID-19 Pandemic situation has really affected many people in this whole wide world in a very negative way. They are getting severely affected socially, mentally and the most critical one, financially. Despite all of that, life must go on that is what this man in Penang is doing. He is willing to dress up in an Iron Man suit and sells corn juice just to make ends meet during this hard and difficult COVID-19 pandemic situation here in Malaysia.
“Got laid off due to the COVID-19 pandemic, a former telecommunication company employee did not complain but instead he tried to get on with his life and use his creativity wearing ‘Iron Man’ suit to sell corn juice”.
“Muhammad Syukur Mohd Patthi, 26, said he was laid off last August and has been selling corn water for the past two weeks after finding it difficult to get another job”.
He and also his friends that are Yusri Md Saad and Mohamad Zaidi Zainal Abidin decided to wear different costumes when selling corn water as a unique way to attract the customers. Muhammad Syukur Mohd Patthi said, “Even though we have to work at the side of the road no matter rain or shine, I feel happy whenever the people who pass by wave or honk at us. Many people miss the world outside of their house and I am happy that I get to entertain them”.
Other than that, they also will give out the remaining stock of their corn juice for all the frontliners at the roadblocks around Penang. Muhammad Syukur and his friends are selling corn juice specifically around Bandar Perda, Bukit Mertajam in Penang.

Biden Ends Travel Ban On Muslim Majority Countries
WASHINGTON Jan 21 – US President Joe Biden on Wednesday ended his predecessor’s travel ban on several Muslim-majority countries, which the new administration called “discriminatory.”
Biden signed the executive order in the Oval Office after taking the oath to become the country’s 46th president, Anadolu Agency reported.
In the proclamation, he said the US “was built on a foundation of religious freedom and tolerance, a principle enshrined” in the country’s constitution.
Trump introduced the ban in March 2017 with an executive order followed by proclamations that introduced vetting capabilities and processes, citing attempted entries of “terrorists” or “public safety threats,” in a move to prevent individuals from entering the US from Muslim countries and then several other African nations. These countries include Syria, Somalia, Yemen, Iran, Iraq, Libya and Sudan.
“Our national security will be enhanced by revoking the Executive Order and Proclamations,” said Biden, ordering all American embassies and consulates to resume visa processing in a manner consistent with the move.
The restrictions were “rooted in religious animus, and xenophobia,” White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters at a press briefing.
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) welcomed the move, calling it “an important first step toward undoing the anti-Muslim and anti-immigrant policies of the previous administration.”
“It is an important fulfilment of a campaign pledge to the Muslim community and its allies,” said Nihad Awad, head of the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights organisation.

Lady Gaga And Jennifer Lopez Performs For Biden’s Inauguration
At the star-studded opening ceremony for new US President Joe Biden, Lady Gaga belted out America’s national anthem and Jennifer Lopez performed a stirring medley, including a line in Spanish.
Country hitmaker Garth Brooks, who sang a soulful version of Amazing Grace at the Washington DC gathering, has also joined the two pop superstars.
Four years ago, when he failed to draw big-name artists to perform, the celebration was in sharp contrast to the inauguration of Donald Trump. Gaga wore a dove pin and a wide red sculpted skirt as she sang into a gold microphone, performing an emotional rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner.
She listened to Mr. Biden as she left the podium and stared at former President Barack Obama. Gaga campaigned with Mr. Biden in Pennsylvania before his November election victory, and the pair worked together while he was vice president to fight sexual harassment on college campuses.
The Born This Way singer was followed at Wednesday’s ceremony by Lopez, dressed all in white, who performed a medley of This Land Is Your Land and America The Beautiful.
Before ramping up her show, the singer, known as J Lo by her fans, began slowly, throwing in a line in Spanish.
She said “one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all” in Spanish before belting out “Let’s get loud” and then wrapping up her performance by singing the line “This land was made for you and me”.
She then blew a kiss to the audience and turned around before walking away to say a few things to Vice President Kamala Harris.
More A-list stars are included in the Celebrating America television program presented by Tom Hanks, which takes the place of the regular official inaugural balls.
