“It’s not easy for us. So I tried to look for a job in Penang riding my motorcycle. Unfortunately, I got a punctured tire while on the bridge and there’s even an accident in front of me,” recalled Shahrul of the moment.

“But suddenly came this angel in disguise approaching me and asking about my condition. I hate to be a burden and always prefer to do everything on my own. But this person called Syed looked like he really wanted to help.”

To make sure Shahrul safely arrived at the motorcycle workshop, Syed followed from behind him.

Some even offered him a job as a bus driver.
