Another individual named Basir recounted challenging moments in 2017. Basir decided to quit his existing job due to envy harbored by a colleague.

After securing a new job in quality control (QC), he was unexpectedly laid off by the company.

After months of job hunting, Basir found himself in a downward financial spiral, with his savings depleting as he attended interviews.

He reached a point where he had only RM2 left in his wallet, and his bank account was empty.

“I can’t forget that at some point; I had only 2 ringgit in my wallet; my account was completely empty,” he said.

Facing numerous obstacles, Basir even resorted to selling old coins to sustain his life.

“The worst part was being able to afford only hot water mixed with sugar to curb hunger for a week,” Basir revealed.

However, his luck began to change when a university acquaintance helped him start a one-ringgit fried chicken business, leading to his eventual employment.

Hence, to those navigating through life’s struggles, do not lose heart. Endeavor to the best of your abilities, and know that many have faced and triumphed over similar tribulations.
