Helping small businesses is pivotal for the betterment of our society. After all, they work harder to sell their wares to make an honest living. By purchasing from them, we’re helping others around them as well.
For instance, many have heard of the elderly aunty that sells chicken rice by the roadside in Ujong Pasir, Melaka. But, did you know that she also donates her chicken rice to an old folks home?
Raswan Sidhu took to the UnderMYPayung Facebook page to spread the word about the generous aunty and her business.
She wrote, “Please support this lady whose make-shift chicken rice stall is in Ujong Pasir, opposite the Lee Wah fruit shop. She pre-packs and sells on a foldable table. Tastes good too. She sends the unsold ones to an old folks home and delivers 100 packs to them every Wednesday. Please help her to help the old folks home.”
Despite her own difficulties of trying to make a business by the roadside, the aunty is willing to help others as well.
“The aunty cried while she talked to me, and thanked everyone who supported her. She shared her sad story with me, which I will not share. So guys, please support her.”
Raswan shared with WORLD OF BUZZ that the aunty’s chicken rice, which is only RM3.50, is very delicious and well portioned. She added that the aunty does not want donations from the public as she would rather we purchase her chicken rice instead.
“I had many inquiries asking me for the aunty’s account number, to give her some money. I mentioned it to the aunty. She said, ‘I dont need cash, I only want people to buy my chicken rice’.”
So what are you waiting for?
Not only is she selling affordable and delicious chicken rice, but she also sells Mee Suah for RM2 per packet. She is open every day except Mondays and Wednesdays, and she’ll be open from 7.30am until 9.30am. But be warned, as, since Raswan’s posting, her chicken rice sells out by 8:30am.
So, if you want to secure your packets, you’ll need to get there early!
Thank you, aunty, for showing us that despite our own difficulties, there are always others who have it harder and that we should help them however we can.
