It’s no secret that Malaysian streets are riddled with those down on their luck, begging for money or food.

And while many feel pity for beggars and the homeless and often times donate to them, others believe that these people are taking advantage of the sympathy they’re receiving.

An instance of this is a video that has been shared on the MYNEWSHUB Twitter page, showcasing an alleged beggar sitting in a corner and counting the money, which appears to be quite an amount, he had received from the general public.

MYNEWSHUB wrote, “(Can I) borrow RM100?”


In the video, the alleged beggar was shown sitting in an isolated corner while looking through and counting the money he managed to collect, not knowing that he is being recorded from above.

Through his opened bag, quite the amount of single RM1 notes could be seen, as well as what looks like a couple of RM5 notes and maybe 1 RM10 note.


Netizens are divided over this, taking to the comment section of the post to share their opinions.

Some believe that the alleged beggar, who appears to be able-bodied, should not receive donations (especially at that high amount) from the general public while others feel like it’s okay.

“The money he has in his bag is more than my salary for a day.”

“If they come to me while being an adult and sound of mind, I’ll pass. I prefer giving alms or tips to foreign workers who fill up your tank at petrol stations, food delivery riders, cleaners, the kids who collect plates at mall food courts or stall owners (I won’t take my change). They are more eligible to receive extras.”

“But… pity him.”
