A heartwarming Malaysia day story.
As we were driving home, my friend noticed a lady standing by the side of the road next to her car and asked me to stop to check if the lady needed help. (I secretly didn’t want to stop because we hear of stories of how it’s a trap where you get robbed by hidden thugs. I still have ptsd from my past experience) Anxiously I stopped the car…
My friend Belinda James went to ask the lady if she was OK and found out that she had a flat tyre.
“Do you want to help her?”
“I can’t help, I don’t know how to change a tyre!”
“I do, it won’t take long” replied my friend Belinda.
“Oh ok then” I replied feeling helpless.
My friend went back to the lady and helped her to move the car out of a dangerous spot and continued with the mission.
I was still sitting in my car with, it was raining.
Soon after I noticed a guy on a bike had stopped and was talking to them.
At that point I got out of the car to start recording. My own bias was what if the guy is going to rob us? I felt a bit anxious to be honest.
As time passed, it appeared that he was genuinely helping to change the tyres and he did an extremely thorough job.
At the end, the Indian lady offered him some money but he refused to the point the lady had to force him to take it.
This story really gave me some faith back in humanity at a time when I needed it.
Thank you Azrin. You not only saved the Indian Auntie but you saved me too.
Happy Malaysia day. To peace and unity 🙏
