Malaysia has no shortage of kindhearted citizens who are willing to help another citizen in need. Most of the time, they go out of their way to assist as they believe that it contributes to their good karma, living by the saying ‘what goes around, comes around.’
A Malaysian girl took to Twitter to share her story of a kind uncle who seemed like he was rushing off somewhere, but decided to make time to help her and her father. Nebulaaa (@belldybala_) was on her way to a job interview with her father when the incident occurred.
"Kita buat baik dkt org, bila kita susah mesti ada org tolong kita balik" – abah.

“Today I had a job interview in Bukit Jalil. Of course, as always my father fetched me to the location. After the interview, as we were on our way home, my father’s bike ran out of petrol. He had forgotten to fill up the tank earlier. So we were forced to stop at a bus stop by the side of a fancy apartment building to inspect the bike.”
“How were we going to move my father’s legendary motorbike? The petrol station was quite far away. My father gave me some money to take the Bukit Jalil LRT home but I refused. I stayed and we brainstormed for 5 minutes on where we can find a bottle to carry petrol in.”
Nebulaaa took a picture to prove to her mother that she and her father were going to have a motorbike pushing marathon.
As Nebulaaa and her father rode home after the incident, her father bestowed some good ol’ fashioned words of wisdom upon his daughter.
“Maybe the kindness we’ve shown and the help we’ve given to others before this, we are now receiving back. Alhamdulillah. Do good onto others and others will help us when we need it.”
It’s sights like this that remind us that the 1Malaysia spirit is and has always been strong – we just need to see each other as human beings! It’s really touching to see Malaysians making the extra effort for no other reason than the kindness of their hearts.
