In the caption of the video, Nor Asiah Kamis emphasized the profound sacrifices parents make to provide their children with opportunities for a better future.

Despite the emotional attachment, she felt compelled to make this sacrifice in order to support her children’s education.
She stated, “This bracelet was given to me by my husband. But I have to make sacrifices for my child; she is more important. Later, we will find something else.”
