A completely blind elderly was selling tissue paper at the corridor to LRT station nearby Pudu bus station. At his age, guess that's the only skill that he possess. I've seen some beggars who were physically-challenged around the same area, but the old man opts to sell something to save his dignity instead of begging for money. The bus/LRT passengers are quite familiar with the old man, he was always in clean and neat dress and always quiet and motionless resemble a statue.
I'm not in the position to say he's ill-fated or how could God has done such a terrible thing to the poor old man, that's life and he's making the best out of it. never had imagine one day I've gone blind and living a pitch dark colorless world. I think we have taken all we have for granted, if only one day all had taken away, we would appreciate.
When I was about to leave , I patted his shoulder and left a one riggit paper note to him , I got a thank you back in Malay(Terima kasih). well, that's all I can do.
Nobody has marked this note useful
