My Parents May Not Have Much But They Selflessly Help Malaysian Tide Through Lockdown
A Singaporean man shared about how his father, the sole breadwinner of a family of 5, had gone the distance to help a Malaysian colleague who had no place to stay because of the 2-week lockdown.
The father is a humble Singaporean who does not earn a lot as a retail executive. Despite not having enough, he generously offered for his colleague to stay in their house for free. He took care to make space and buy new household items so that his guest can feel at home.
My dad prepped and made plans this morning before heading to work, and was concerned by the sofa bed being too small for his colleague, and then proceeds to ask my mother to get us to bring out the folded mattress for his colleague. Me being a jealous brat (jk im not like that ok), questioned how is the queen sized sofa bed not big enough when his two biological sons were sleeping on single beds.
The man was touched that his mother was equally giving in offering to cook dinner for the lucky colleague.
My point is, my parents never had much, my parents never stood out. But their simple, small and selfless actions never fail to amaze me. They have my utmost respect for what they have done, albeit small actions, but to their best ability nonetheless. They are heroes to me and i just wanted to share some heartwarming stories amidst this tough period for everyone.
Stay strong everyone, a little kindness goes a long way.
