While most would gladly get rid of old, bulky furniture from their home, some have instead put their creativity to good use and transformed them into entirely new products.
One makcik was recently praised by netizens for her brilliance in turning an old washing machine into a sink.
Turns washing machine into sink
In a video shared by @huda_jahar on TikTok, she showed the makcik washing the dishes in a sink made up of an old washing machine.
The left-side compartment was the section specially dedicated to the washing of dishes, while the right-side compartment had a basket which acted as a drainer to place the clean dishes.
When asked how old she was, the makcik cheerily replied, “70-years-old”.

Young in heart and mind
The video has since gone viral with more than 430,000 views, where netizens were amazed by the makcik’s next level of creativity.
One netizen remarked that older people were usually known for their unorthodox but creative ideas.
“The older folks tend to be extraordinarily creative. Even my mum is using the old refrigerator to keep her stuff.”
Another expressed surprise over the makcik’s age, saying that she looked young for a 70-year-old woman.
