A Simple Act of Kindness : A Stranger Smile

I was on my daily routine that day where I should deposit our company cash into a local bank. The morning set on a sunny day, it even strange how the sun can be so sweat breaking at 9 o’clock in the morning. My throat began to tickle in requiring something to drink.

Depositing the cash was not that hard, I just need to park my car nearby and waiting for a few people who already in line on the deposit machine, inserting the cash and mission accomplished. 

So then, I feel determined to stop by into the convenient store next door for a quick refreshment. As I have deposited the cash, I saw this man, who sits in front of the store with his old and dusty black shirt holding a transparent plastic cup with few of one ringgit notes. He hold it slightly higher as he saw me about entering the store, clearly I realize there is not much teeth left on his smile. Poor man he is, with all the hot weather and absence of money to buy food. But instead, I smiled back and get through into the store front door.

He reminds me of a young boy beggar I stumble several weeks ago in a supermarket. The setting was almost the same only without the transparent cup, sunny day and this boy stood in front of the supermarket door and began to beg me with his hand “Sister, do you have some money so that I can buy some food?”.  I remember looking at his dirty hand covered in dust. I can’t bear to look into his eyes for a reason I did not sure.  At that time I choose to walk away. 

I truly am missing something here, I should do some important things that I should have done a long time ago, I fold some of my leftover notes in an exchange with my drinks, I put the notes hurriedly into that transparent cup the man holding as Im afraid my mind will be shifted.

He got a little shocked realizing how much I gave him and he quickly phrases “Thank God, may God blessed you sister”. All I can ever think is may God give him an abundance of sustenance and my God forgive me for walked away when from that child beggar I meet before. 

Clearly solid how God remind us that some of our sustenance was not only meant for us, it can be meant to be for others too. That is how God takes care of His creations.

I shall say only three words for this book : short, fastfoward and paranormal.
.
.
. 
The story involving two malay detectives pushed into a tangled world of paranormal serial killer, a vampire like. But what matter the most, it has a connection from their ancestor. .
.
. 
There were still much hole on the plot as there were several unanswered questions at the end of the book. Still, the crucial questions had all been covered, so that not gonna be a problem.
.
.
.
Its also have a plot twist which I did not expect nor do I excited about. Its just so-so.
.
.
.
The ending for me does not satisfied as there are so much 'Why this and that?'.
.
.
.
But yeah still a nice fast foward reading, this first published book for RAM Typewriter gotta glued you till the end with the curiousity bait in every pages.

Kau kena faham, untuk berada di jalan yang kau pilih, untuk mengejar impian, tak semua akan faham bagaimana kau menjalankannya.
.

Nasihat aku pada diri sendiri, keep moving on and teruskan berdoa in every step we take. Percaya dengan sebulat tekad, bahawa jalan terbaik bukanlah yg pada akhirnya berjaya, tapi pada proses kau mengenal Majikan Kau yang sebenarnya. Indeed He is Capable of Everything.
  • Izinkan aku membaca untuk seribu tahun lama lagi.

  • What if, you are a ghostwriter. What it felt to write something for someone as themself and they take the credit? .
.
This is indeed a digging the truth in a very deep way kind of writing. .

I manage to visit a bookXcess outlet on Fahreinheit (after accidently mistook their warehouse an outlet 😅😅😅). And i'm both excited and amaze on how low all the books prices was. Due to my tight budget Im very glad to have some new books haul to bring back to KK and living with the most relaxing time of my life - reading.
