I need your advise regarding the problem I am facing. My mom is the owner of a shop lot in KOMTAR Penang. I am her son and I want to open a small cafe in her shop specializing Myanmar food. I employed a Sabahan girl and a Myanmar boy. The Sabahan is waitress whilst the Myanmar boy does cleaning chores.

I have no problem applying a business licence. The only problem is with MPPP. There rejected my application for a licence with the reason that my cafe is "dikendalikan sepenuhnya oleh warganegara asing". That is not true because I work in the shop and my waitress is a Malaysian. I intend to submit an appeal letter MPPP pengarah bahagian pelesenan.

I really appreciate and grateful if you kindly guide me to write a formal letter. Thank you.

Write 99 letters also no use. The more you write, the more often your eatery will be raided in the future.

The Myanmar cleaner, what type of work permit he is using now? Is it under your name?

I employed him from an agent. He has a work permit for cleaning services. The problem is why I was not issued an MPPP licence. It is my mom shop and it is my business and my waitress is a Malaysian. I cannot open a Myanmar eating house or do I need their permission on what type of business to do? My business is not illegal and my Myanmar guy has a work permit.

Post a clear copy of his permit here for me to understand better.

Foreign workers are not allow to work in small eateries even as cleaners. Are you saying your eatery is so big that the floors and toilets have to be cleaned round the clock 10 hours?

Cleaning services is not what you imagine. Even collection of the dishes is not allowed. That is not cleaning.
