Imagine living on the 3A3A floor.
In Malaysia, a curious individual has raised a compelling question regarding the conspicuous absence of the number “4” on lift buttons in a video he shared online.

Speaking to WeirdKaya, the person who posted the video noted that the elevator is located in an apartment complex in Setapak.

He explained that he does not have a Chinese friend to inquire about the significance of the number “4” and its avoidance, leading him to seek explanations online.
