Photography
I see many Deaf people love to learn the photography! You can make money when you love to take creative photos! Try to sell your own photos via the stock photography or blog and portfolio website. For example, iStockphoto or Malaysian Stock Photos, both of which sell your digital files and you’ll get a percentage of each download because they are buying downloads, once you have the images uploaded and key-worded, it can become a nice passive way of earning income. You also can promote your creative photography via your Facebook, your friends will be interested in you and want to hire you to be their photographer for the wedding, family, festivals, and studio!

Cooking
You love to cook? No problem for you to earn extra income if you can create your idea when you are cooking or you can sell the food recipe or cookies or cupcakes and any food via the Internet. In addition, you can provide your cooking classes to teach Deaf students who want to learn how to cook. Today, I see many Deaf women nowadays do not know how to cook but there are also Deaf men who want to learn to cook. Maybe this is good chance for the Deaf guys enjoy to learn it in their rent home. For Deaf women, they can take cooking class then they can have chance to sell their homemade food to friends. I learned to cook and bake the cookies and cake since my mom guided me because I want to sell my cookies for Chinese New Year via my facebook, I never think to get responded from my friends so quickly! Some friends love to order more from me. It is good chance for Deafs to sell their baking or homemade food in the blog or social media!

If you skilled to fix your computer or notebook, you can help your friend to fix the computer, so you can gain extra money. Or, you can teach the Deaf students at home. For example, you teach Deaf students to do website, or designing with used the software IT.

Work as Part-Time during holiday

You can work as part-time Sign Language teacher for the hearing students at your home. Or, you can work in DIB Coffee and Hawaii to learn about how to do latte coffee or work as waiter. You can help your family to do business so you can learn more from them. You can teach to Deaf students at your home, like giving the tuition, if you are teacher. You get your friends from other country? They want to visit your place, then you can become tour guider to bring them visit around Kuala Lumpur, Penang or Malacca. Or you can look for the part-time jobs, such as the Part time Post, You.my, Parttime.com.my, and Jobless.com.my
