An aspiring food and beverage vendor discovered the generosity of strangers after his homemade iced drinks were completely destroyed when they were accidentally dropped to the ground.
One member of the popular Facebook group Suami Masak Apa Hari Ini, a group created for husbands and future husbands to share their homemade meals and cooking tips during the MCO shared the tragic story a few days ago when it happened.
With Hari Raya just around the corner, Khan decided to sell iced beverages to make enough money to tailor an outfit for the festive season. Unfortunately, his dreams were crushed when an entire batch of drinks went tumbling to the ground .
He wrote in his post,
“I don’t know if I should laugh or cry. Just started a business to find money to make baju Raya but in the end, they ended up on the ground.”
The post went viral with over 17k reactions and over 100 shares and many other members of the group shared their sympathies, telling Khan to stay strong. However one member in particular, actually went the extra mile by offering Khan a free outfit!
“Bro, if you need baju Raya just WhatsApp me, I’ll give it to you for free this Raya,” was what he said in the comments section.
Other members in the group also kindly helped Khan by making orders for his iced sweetcorn beverage. Khan then decided to pay it forward the very next day by distributing free meals to others as a gesture of charity.
What a heartwarming story! Kudos to all the kind people who decided to help Khan. It is after all the season of spreading love and happiness! #KitaJagaKita
