No one is a stranger to hard times.

Be it health problems, relationship problems, or financial problems, all of us, at one point in our lives, have experienced pain and suffering.

This is why it’s so important to be kind to one another and help each other whenever we can.

And this concept is definitely something Uncle Yew understood as he helped young @niniekamarudinn at a time when she needed help the most.

“Don’t worry. You don’t have to pay the fare. Don’t cry anymore. You can’t change what has already happened. You don’t have to pay, it’s on me.”

Recently, Ninie shared on Twitter how a MyCar driver who was a complete stranger to her helped her at a time of need. Without asking for any favour in return, he helped her just because he could see she needed a hand.

According to her Twitter thread, she made a trip to a supermarket on her own to buy some supplies.

Being a broke student, she brought just enough money to pay for the supplies needed and for the travel fare back and forth by MyCar.

Unfortunately, at some point during the trip, she lost an RM50 note. Despite searching everywhere for the money, she couldn’t find it anywhere.

Ninie shared that although some may think RM50 isn’t that much money, to a starving student like her, it is a lot.

Disappointed and upset, she called a MyCar to pick her up and take her back home.

Then, as if things weren’t already tight money-wise, Ninie’s MyCar fare turned out to be RM12.90, a bit pricier than what she’s used to. 

With dejected resignation, Ninie climbed into the MyCar anyway.

As soon as she got into the car, the uncle driving the car, noticing Ninie’s upset expression asked her if everything was okay.

Unable to hold back tears, Ninie cried as she told him what had happened.

The kind uncle, Uncle Yew, told her that there was no need to cry and offered to waive her fare as long as she studied hard, adding that today he’ll help her, maybe in the future someone will help him.

On top of that, Uncle Yew also made sure Ninie had some dinner by making a stop at a restaurant and buying some food for her to take home.

Malaysian netizens, who were absolutely touched by Ninie’s story and Uncle Yew’s show of kindness replied and retweeted her thread causing it to go viral.

At the time of writing, Ninie’s tweet had been retweeted 11.8k times.

Many Twitter users wished for Uncle Yew’s best and offered Ninie help if she ever needed it.

“Thank god that uncle helped you”

“I swear Malaysians with their “today I help you, tomorrow you help someone else, others will help me in return” is so warm and nice”

“You’re so blessed to have met someone this kind. Let’s pray Uncle Yew will forever have good health, longevity, prosperity and be within God’s protection.”

According to the replies, Uncle Yew regularly picks up and sends students in the area and is known to be nice and friendly.

“Seriously, this uncle is so kind and friendly. I’ve ridden with him before. He also advised me to study hard and everything. I was rushing that day but this uncle’s friendly demeanor actually calmed me down”

Besides restoring everyone’s faith in humanity and kindness, Ninie’s tweet was so viral it somehow reached MyCar themselves, who, upon hearing the very muhibbah story, decided to help both Ninie and Uncle Yew.

“Kindness will eventually be repaid”
The considerate gesture of the Chinese MyCar driver, Mr Yew Ah Tat, who graciously helped this student proves that Malaysians are indeed a united nation.
As a token of appreciation, MyCar is rewarding Mr Yew Ah Tat with
RM500 cash money and zero deduction in driving commission for 3 months.
MyCar also understands the burden faced by the student and is offering her RM500 cash as assistance.
Helping each other is a noble practice.
Happy Malaysia Day, this is Malaysia.”

We’re so glad to know that there are still many Malaysians out there willing to help each other out in a time of need.
