Despite the emotional plea, Ejad wisely refused the request, explaining he couldn’t afford to lend such a large sum.

“You spend too much. You change your iPhone every year, and that Tissot watch isn’t right for us yet, bro. I’ve told you many times not to buy the Alphard even if you earned RM5 – RM6k a month.

Even if you cried tears of blood, I can’t give you RM8,500. This RM8,500 might not be something you can pay back, and it might not even solve your future problems.”

Afterward, the man gave wise advice to his friend, suggesting he consider other options like selling assets or talking to banks. It was clear that his friend’s money problems were made worse by careless spending habits, reflecting a common issue in society.

In the end, Ejad shared a valuable advice, warning against the dangers of showing off wealth. He urged people not to feel pressured to pretend they’re richer than they are, stressing the need for smart money management and careful choices.

“Don’t let the desire for social media praise make us suffer for nine years in just a few minutes,” he concluded.
