In this day and age, where the cost of living is sky-high and prices of everyday items are constantly rising, managing meals can often be a struggle for many.
Thankfully, the government introduced the ‘Menu Rahmah,’ allowing citizens to get a meal for as low as RM5. However, not all eateries offer this affordable option.
With just RM5 to spend on dinner, a security guard’s options at a local eatery were seriously limited.
However, a generous TikToker, Bang Jad, came to the guard’s rescue in a heartwarming incident that’s swiftly gone viral.
While at a food stall, Bang Jad noticed the guard preparing to order a modest meal for himself.
All he had was a solitary RM5 note clutched in his hand, and in light of the escalating prices, that wouldn’t stretch far.
This sight pulled at Bang Jad’s heartstrings, prompting him to step in and treat the guard to any dishes he desired.
“Hold up, let me get this, you just grab the white rice and chicken,” Bang Jad can be heard telling the guard in the video.
This generous act offered the security guard an opportunity to enjoy a more substantial chicken dinner that he would have otherwise missed out on.
As of now, the video has garnered over 500,000 views, eliciting a wave of warmth and admiration from netizens.
In response to this touching video, one netizen shared their own experience: “I’ve encountered a similar situation before. I bought three sets of rice for a security guard and his child during the Movement Control Order (MCO). Truly, many were affected during that time.”
Such compassionate deeds remind us of an old saying, “Charity does not have to wait for wealth.”
Bang Jad’s kind gesture beautifully illustrated this, proving that every bit of kindness goes a long way in making someone’s day a little bit better.
