The pandemic has shifted how Johorean works. More companies have stopped renting physical offices and allow employees to work from home. Many tasks can be completed via a laptop and internet from anywhere in the world. The industries include marketing agencies, insurance, accounting, education and many others involve only services and digital products, not limited to only start-up companies.
While working from home alone can be extremely boring and stressful, some opt for working from co-working spaces, cafes as well as hotels. Here are some of the trends to spend a working day in Iskandar Puteri!
Kick-Start Morning With Coffee
Majority of working adults can’t live without having a cup of coffee as an important part of their morning routine. No matter how early it is, Mana Cafe in Puteri Harbour is able to serve a good cup of coffee with wide breakfast selections as it opens 24 hours a day. Besides coffee, it also provides other beverages such as Malaysian’s favourite Teh Tarik, Milo and Soy Bean. In terms of food, this cafe offers local delicacies including Roti Canai and Nasi Lemak. A good breakfast fuels productivity too.
