"Just to let you guys know, my brother is a comic collector. So he has a mini business loaning his comics to his friends. That's how he started collecting money," wrote his sister.

With a little help from his parents, Irfan was able to buy a brand new PS4

FYI, a PS4 Slim costs about RM1,349. 

According to Farhana, their parents did help a little by topping up the remainder for her brother's new PS4. However, it didn't diminish Irfan's efforts and hard work as they were all still superbly proud of him.

And so were fellow netizens who applauded the boy for being an inspiration
