If you truly want something, then work for it! If you’re drooling over a new atas device that will be released soon, time to save up and trace your spending!

Yes, it’s always easier said than done but a Malaysian man from Penang recently revealed that nothing is impossible if you have the will. In the TikTok account @bifoty_camper, 30-year-old Hafiz revealed that he saved 50 cents every day for 7 consecutive years which totaled up to more than RM5,000. With the money he had in hand, it was time for a reward!

Did Hafiz purposely save up for the Apple smartphone and wait patiently for 7 long years? Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Hafiz said that when he started saving up in 2016, it was merely for fun and he did not expect to reach that amount.

He said that no one inspired him to do so but it was a spur-in-the-moment kind of decision, and only decided to reward himself with an iPhone if the habit persisted.

“I didn’t know how I got the motivation to start collecting 50 sen coins, and it continued for 7 years.”

Hafiz initially started by putting the coins in the glass before they needed a bigger “cave” to stay in, and he replaced the glass with a snack container. As shown in the viral clip, the coins had another “change of home” – a 19-litre water bottle from the water dispenser. It became the coins’ permanent home until they were eventually used.

We can tell that the coins were well kept when Hafiz’s sibling had to use a saw to cut the water bottle in half. 4 manpower and 3 hours later, they finally ended the counting session, and in 7 years, Hafiz saved a total of RM5360.

“No 10 sen, no 20 sen, just loads of 50 sen.”

Hafiz also told WORLD OF BUZZ that he visited a total of 6 banks to exchange the coins with banknotes because each bank could not accept large quantities of coins. In some cases, the machines designated to count the coins were out of service.

You can watch the viral clip below.


Total RM5360.00 hasil simpan semua duit 50sen..takde duit 10sen@20sen..ambik masa 3jam baru siap kira dengan tenaga 4org tukang kira? alhamdulillah.. #menabung #duitsyiling #50sen #alhamdulillah

7 years is a long wait, especially for a reward or a material. Regardless, when was the first time that you started saving with a piggy bank?
