Friend Finally Paid Back RM240 After 18 Years

January 20, 2020 | Viral | No Comments

We have all been there – at a time where friends would approach us for small loans. We also know getting our money repaid back is not the easiest thing. Heck, many of us encountered people who just ‘forgot’ to pay us back.

However, what happened to a man in Singapore recently was hilarious. He had to wait a whopping 18 years before his borrower paid him the $80 (RM240) he lent during National Service.

Showing his gratefulness to his friend who paid the debt, Derick Khoo Yew Seng took to Facebook to express his appreciation in a thank you status.

He writes, “This post is not to disgrace anyone. I post this because I am super duper happy for him. 

“He is an army under my care in 2002 during National Service. In our one on one interview, he expressed his wish to borrow money from me to resolve his issue.”

“Without further consideration, I lent him the money.”

Derick understood at that point that the army did not pay well, which resulted in some facing direr financial problems than others.

Unfortunately, as his service ended, they lost contact with each other, Derick assumed that he would no longer come into contact with the man as he changed his phone number.

“For me, it was just water under the bridge from then on.”

Within a few years, their paths crossed for a brief moment at which point Derick’s platoon mate mentions that the loan matter has not been forgotten.

“After a few unfulfilled promises, the man changed his phone number again.”

“It is probable that he is not able to pay his bills, thus resulting in the telco terminating his number.”

Thanking social media, Derick was once again met with the man he lent his money to, and received a phone call in the evening from an unknown number that turned out to be him.

“He identified himself to me and told me that this time he will return the money he borrowed from me.”

“I believed it half-heartedly as I have already forgone what he borrowed from me. That very morning, he shared with me a receipt proving that he had paid the money.”

Tears flowed, because to Derick it was not the amount that mattered, but the value of a kept promise is what meant the most to him.

“I was overjoyed that he finally did it. I can see that my man has changed from being an ’empty promises guy’ to someone better.”

SHAH ALAM – Kisah seorang kanak-kanak perempuan yang menjual tisu di jalanan demi membantu ibunya yang cacat penglihatan mengundang sebak di kalangan warga maya yang membacanya.

Perkara tersebut dikongsikan oleh seorang cikgu, Mohd Fadli Salleh di laman Facebooknya yang menceritakan kanak-kanak perempuan berusia 9 tahun berkorban diri turun ke jalanan dan menjual tisu bagi membantu menyara keluarganya.

Lebih menyedihkan, upah ibunya yang hanya bekerja sebagai tukang urut tidak cukup yang menyebabkan ketiga-tiga anaknya yang berusia di antara 16 tahun sehingga 9 tahun tidak lagi bersekolah.

“Ibunya Orang Kurang Upaya (OKU) penglihatan. Mampu jadi tukang urut sahaja. Itu pun gajinya yang tidak besar mana. Bantuan Jabatan Kebajikan Masyarakt (JKM) dan Baitulmal sebelum ini mereka dapat, namun untuk tahun ini katanya masih dalam proses.

“Hari ini, aku pergi ziarah, jumpa mereka dan berbincang dengan cara baik. Kami pergi bukan untuk menghakimi kehidupan mereka, bukan juga untuk menjatuhkan hukuman, jauh sekali nak mengecam dan menyindir atau menghina,” tulisnya.

Dalam pada itu, Mohd Fadli berkata pihaknya telah menawarkan bantuan kewangan dan barangan dapur setiap bulan demi memastikan kesemua anaknya bersekolah dan tidak lagi menjual tisu demi menyara keluarga.

Menurutnya, dia juga akan memastikan bantuan daripada Baitumal dan JKM akan kembali dinikmati oleh mereka selain membantu membayarkan sewa rumah tiga bulan pertama buat keluarga itu.

“Ini demi memastikan anak perempuan mereka yang berusia 9 tahun itu kembali ke sekolah dan tidak lagi mengemis di jalanan. Aku sangat risaukan anak perempuannya yang menjual tisu itu.

“Dah ada beberapa laporan aku terima, budak perempuan menjual tisu dan akhirnya menjual badan untuk RM5-RM10 kepada pemandu teksi dan Bangla sebelum ini. Aku tak nak peristiwa serupa menimpa anak yang comel ini.

“Penawaran ini perlu untuk menggantikan pendapatan yang hilang. Alhamdulillah, mereka bersetuju. Rasa nak sujud syukur tadi,” katanya.

Sementara itu, perkongsian Mohd Fadli kini tular di media sosial yang meraih 4,800 tanda suka dan 238 warga maya berkongsi kisah tersebut

Rata-rata netizen bersimpati atas nasib yang diterima oleh kanak-kanak tersebut di samping berterima kasih kepada cikgu tersebut kerana telah banyak membantu golongan yang memerlukan.

“Kisah ini betul-betul buat aku sedih. Tak sangka masih ada lagi insan yang hidup betul-betul dalam keadaan daif. Terima kasih cikgu Mohd Fadli kerana telah banyak membantu masyarakat khususnya anak-anak sekolah yang memerlukan bantuan,” tulis Rahmayana di Facebook.

Bubble tea, as most of you know, is a trend-food. And like most trend-food items, they are highly popular to a point where some people have described them as being almost ‘addictive’. But that’s just a state of mind, right? After all, there’s nothing really addictive inside a cup of bubble tea that would make you addicted to it.

According to Sin Chew Daily, the Malaysian Police have recently just busted down a ring of drug dealers who were distributing drugs, but they had one unique way of doing it that is either both really brilliant, or really deceptive.

So instead of just dealing drugs in their physical form, like pills or powders, which would make it incredibly obvious, the drug ring uses the already ‘addictive’ influence of bubble tea to their benefit:

The drug of choice, ecstasy, is turned into a powder before being mixed in with milk tea from popular brands, iced lemon tea, or grape juice, depending on your preferred beverage of choice.

Each cup of ‘bubble tea’, or again, whatever beverage on their menu, is sold for around RM250 to RM350.That’s a very expensive cup of bubble tea! The drug ring that was operating within both Langkawi and Bukit Tinggi areas were comprised of four men and three women.

They seized over 131 packets of milk tea powder and 27 drinks, all of which had been mixed with ecstasy. Apparently, this isn’t a new way of dealing drugs as mixing powdered drugs into popular drinks has been going on for a while now in the club scene, but this is the first time bubble tea has been used as the drink of choice.

During the raid, over RM 462,250 worth of property was confiscated including four cars, four leather bags, two watches, and cash. The suspects, who were between 20 to 35-years-old, will be investigated under Section 39B of the Dangerous Drugs Act 1952.

The man didn’t stop driving when a woman blocked his way, so she hopped onto the bonnet of his Mercedes Benz.

The sight on Friday (Jan 10) afternoon surprised other motorists on the road who recorded the incident on their mobile phones and dashboard cameras.

In one of the clips circulating on social media, the woman was seen stepping in front of a car that had pulled to a stop on the leftmost lane along Rochor Road.

Despite his warning honk, the woman continued to stand in the driver’s way and banged on the bonnet to ask him to stop.

When she was pushed backwards as he drove on at a slow speed, she decided to hop onto the car’s bonnet.

The Mercedes drove off with the woman hanging on its front windscreen, surprising other motorists as it travelled further down the road to Bugis Junction, as shown in another clip shared on Reddit.

It is unclear how far the car had travelled that way.

The bizarre scene had netizens calling the driver out for driving recklessly. Some said that he should’ve called the police for assistance while others wondered if the woman was trying to scam the driver by faking an accident.

AsiaOne has contacted the police for comment.

Last year, a 34-year-old man was sentenced to 11 weeks’ jail and disqualified from driving for two years for a rash act that endangered life.

He had driven off at speeds up to 70kmh with his lover’s husband hanging onto his front windscreen for more than seven kilometres in Kovan.

After the excitement of the Quadrantids meteor shower that took place on 4th-5th January, many of you sky gazers have been eagerly waiting for the next wondrous sighting to look forward to.

Well, it looks like you won’t have to wait much longer as the penumbral eclipse will be visible to us on 11th January!

For those of you who don’t know, this is when the moon passes through the edges of the Earth’s ‘shadow’ that our planet casts into space, which will make a portion of the Sun’s light obscured.

The penumbral lunar eclipse is different from other total lunar eclipses as the moon doesn’t entirely pass through the Earth’s shadow-which is why the surface of the moon won’t appear to turn a reddish tint as how we view normal lunar eclipses from Earth, as reported by iNews. But what makes this eclipse so exciting is that it coincides with a full moon!

“When a full moon is combined with a penumbral lunar eclipse, you will still be able to see the moon in the sky, it will just appear darker than usual”, according to the Sun.

What you can expect to witness is the subtle dimming of the lunar surface that might not make much of a difference to the naked eye, but you’ll definitely see an obvious difference if you’re shooting the phenomenon with a camera. Take note, photographers!

According to Universe Today, “Asia, Europe and northeastern Africa will see Saturday’s lunar eclipse in its entirety”, so you should be able to catch the phenomenon if factors such as light pollution, weather and cloud visibility are favorable.

The penumbral eclipse will be made visible to us at 1:07 a.m. on January 11th. It will reach its peak at 3:10 a.m with a magnitude of 0.12, before ending at 5:12 a.m, lasting for approximately four hours and five minutes, as recorded by timeanddate.com.

You can adopt these furry friends from wherever you are in the world!

Everyone has heard about the disastrous forest fires in Australia that have sadly wiped out more than 1 billion animals, including thousands of the country’s favourite cute and cuddly national animals, the koalas.

Local ecologists estimate that more than 8,000 koalas have been killed, with more recorded each day. With 30% of these precious creatures now gone because they’re physically unable to escape the fires fast enough, the world fears for the future of these lovable animals.

However, thanks to the internet, we can now take part in helping to adopt these adorable creatures. Before anyone asks, YES, you can adopt them even if you’re not in Australia!

A koala hospital in New South Wales known as, Port Macquarie Koala Hospital, allows you to adopt the wild koalas in their care from wherever you are in the world. The hospital has been helping injured and sick koalas all over the region for years now and they’re especially doing a big part to take care of the poor animals that have been affected by the recent mass bush fires.

You can adopt a koala by firstly visiting the hospital’s website and choosing the koala you’d like to adopt. Once you’ve selected your furry friend, you can choose from three different packages on how you would like to support them!

  • AUD40 (RM 112.90) per year and you’ll receive an e-certificate from the hospital of the adopted koala’s picture and name as well as the adopter’s name.
  • AUD70 (RM 197.57) You’ll get a physical certificate, a hospital booklet about koalas, your adopted koalas background, a koala bookmark and a copy of the hospital’s magazine delivered to you!

Rest assured, all the money will go to medical treatment for the koalas as well as the funding of educational materials to raise awareness about these creatures in need.

Love koalas but too broke to afford adopting one? Don’t worry, there are other options for you! You can always donate to the hospital’s GoFundMe page, specifically tailored to help koalas that have been affected by the bushfires.

As of today, the page has received a whooping AUD 5,379,182-exceeding their initial goal of AUD 25,000 by a long shot.

It’s so heartwarming to see the world come together in the name of kindness to help out a nation in desperate need. Let’s keep praying and spreading awareness about Australia!

The devastating bushfires happening all over Australia have penetrated the news all around the world, leaving viewers feeling disheartened at the tragic loss Australia has had to suffer.

And if you’re feeling a little sad yourself, here’s a some refreshing news that might brighten your day.

According to News.com.au, life has returned to the forests with plants and bushes starting to grow back among the burnt out trees!

Aussies have been sharing beautiful images of the regeneration that’s been taking place which gives us hope that everything is going to be okay.

Murray Lowe from New South Wales, Australia shared a series of images that he captured from Kulnara on the Central Coast of NSW this week.

“Ventured out into the fire grounds today to capture some images of how the Aussie bush responds to fire, and the way it regenerates itself and comes back to life,” he said.

“Even without any rain, life bursts through the burnt bark from the heart of the trees and the life cycle begins again.”

“It’s so heartening to see the bush coming back to life again.”

Murray is now selling the photos and will be giving the profits to help victims of the fires.

What a wonderful sight to see new plants growing in the burnt out forests in Australia. Hopefully the fire doesn’t do anymore damage and that life will start to return to these places of nature.

Keterujaan ibu bapa memuat naik gambar anak dan nama mereka di media sosial boleh mengundang padah.

Anak anda mungkin boleh terdedah kepada risiko bahaya dan jenayah seksual!

Itu kata-kata peringatan pelayar Facebook dikenali Ihsan Zainal yang boleh dijadikan teladan buat insan lain.

Ihsan berkata, anak perempuannya hampir menjadi mangsa culik apabila seorang individu tidak dikenali datang ke sekolah untuk menjemput anaknya semalam.

Bagaimanapun guru bertindak cepat dengan menghalang individu tersebut ekoran mengenali isteri dan dirinya.

“Ketika isteri saya nak jemput balik anak saya seorang ini, tetiba ntah mana seorang itu memakai baju kemas nak jemput anak saya…dengan hanya terbalikkan namanya, rasanya ‘try and error’ kot…

“Kebetulan isteri ada di belakang dia turut terdengar nama anak kami. Namun nasib baik cikgunya mengenali isteri saya. Sekolah baru mana cikgu nak ingat semua muka mak ayah tapi sebab abang dia pernah belajar situ jadi muka kami ni memang tak asing bagi mereka.

“Cikgunya menahan dan berkata awak bukan ibu bapanya,” luahnya.

Susulan itu, individu itu secara tiba-tiba memberitahu tersilap sekolah dan pantas beredar dari sekolah.

Kata Ihsan, insiden itu telah dimaklumkan kepada pihak pengurusan tertinggi sekolah dan mengambil serius perkara tersebut.

“Saya harap agar mak ayah sentiasa peka dengan perkara ini.

“Elak berkongsi nama anak, nama sekolah di media sosial, macam-macam boleh terjadi. Mungkin bukan kerana budak tapi mungkin kerana perasaan lain terhadap mak ayah ke boleh jadi,” katanya.

Dalam pada itu, rata-rata netizen mengucapkan rasa syukur selain menitipkan ribuan terima kasih di atas perkongsian yang cukup bermanfaat.

Ameera Azreen berkata, “Kemungkinan taktik baru culik anak.”

“Wow, serius bahaya, hati-hati,” kata Zulfadhli.
