Despite being Malaysian, he was born in Bangladesh and raised in various countries. He has now settled back in Malaysia, where he found a way to dramatically reduce his living expenses.

Contrary to what some might assume, Mushamir is neither jobless nor homeless; he works as a marketing and communications manager and leads a relatively normal life with a unique twist.

In his TikTok videos, Mushamir demonstrates how he adapts his Proton Iriz into a living space by reclining the front seats to create a comfortable bed, using ice boxes and pillows for a good night’s sleep.

His car is equipped with essentials like a generator for powering fans and lights, allowing him to watch movies, read books, and play video games.

On weekends, he visits his mother, maintaining family ties.
