Here’s a question for you Malaysians to ponder about. Are we generous and kind? We leave the answer to you but according to a tourist from China who visited our country recently, she thinks that Malaysians are kind thanks to her encounters with 2 strangers in the airport.

The tourist, Ting, who just came to Malaysia from Singapore did not go to the money changer prior to her visit here as she thought there isn’t much difference in the currency. She did not worry much about the currency because she had her credit card all along. While a cashless transaction is preferred nowadays following the Covid-19 pandemic, not all services accept card or online payment.

Some are still dependent on cash payment, and you would find yourself in great trouble when you don’t have cash with you, and that was what happened to Ting. A Malaysian man told her that some places don’t accept card payments but only cash. Little did she know, the man turned out to be her savior.

“He took out his wallet and gave me RM200. I asked him how do I return him the money, and he said no need.”

Ting shared an image of the kind man who was in a black t-shirt and pink shorts, as shown in the picture below.

“2 good lucks in a day”

However, fate had something else in store for her, and Ting had no idea she was about to receive another kind gesture on the same day. In the waiting area, she sought guidance from another Malaysian man and asked him for directions to take a bus to the city centre. The man, however, did not offer explanations to Ting.

Instead, he offered to share his cab ride with her as he was also headed towards the city centre. That was a rare kind of coincidence that Ting got to experience.

“He told me not to pay him because we were taking the same route. During the ride, he even told me a lot about what to pay attention to when in the country,” Ting added.

According to her, the man was polite despite his inked skin. When he left the cab, he even made sure with the driver to send Ting to her destination.

“Malaysians are so kind!” Ting expressed.

You can read Ting’s post about getting “free cash” here, and her experience with the cab ride here.

Come to think of it, Malaysians are indirectly promoting the country to foreigners with their kindness and generosity. Does this restore your faith in humanity?
