We did not have any prior experience in website production. Whenever we met obstacles, we worked our best to find someone who was able to consult. There was much joy and setbacks during the research process. At the same time, Time limitation for interview: We confronted many restrictions in our interviews regarding this research project. The main challenge was the schedule to visit many places in Segamat, after school time.
