SAYS reached out to the person who tweeted the note and they asked us to hide their name.

The note with the special request was left for the owner of a house in Taman Kinrara, Puchong by a Poslaju employee, Mohammad Zuhelmy Ibrahim, who was trying his luck to fulfil his pregnant wife's wish

Zuhelmy's wife, Afrah Wan Sulaiman, who is seven months pregnant with their first child, had expressed her desire to taste fresh mangoes after seeing a mango tree bearing fruit somewhere in Puchong earlier.

Afrah, however, told him that she did not want store-bought mangoes and she only wanted the ones that have been freshly plucked from a tree. Zuhelmy promised that he will try to fulfil her wish.

According to the Poslaju employee, he remembered seeing a mango tree in the house of one of the customers as he always delivered packages to the house in Taman Kinrara, Puchong.

"However, the owner of the house was usually not at home when I delivered their packages, so that day, I decided to leave a note on the package and left it on the shoe rack before leaving," Zuhelmy said.

Next day, when the postman returned, he saw that the kind-hearted house owner had left him a note along with a bag full of mangoes

"Abang Poslaju, I have plucked the mangoes that you wanted. It's on the shoe rack where you placed the parcel the other day. Thank you," read the house owner's note.

Inside the plastic bag, Zulhelmy noticed there were half a dozen mangoes.

"When I delivered a package to the house the next day, I saw a note next to the mailbox that there was a bag of mangoes for me," he said, adding that he is grateful to them for willing to fulfil his wife's wish.

Meanwhile, the sweet surprise has made Afrah very happy

"I am very happy to be able to eat the freshly plucked fruit... I am also very grateful to the kind owner of the house for giving us the mangoes," she said.

"It is rare to meet someone with a noble heart like them as a family. May the family be blessed with an abundance of sustenance," added Afrah, who is expected to give birth to her baby in November.
