It's not hidden from anyone that people have been reeling under the various Movement Control Orders (MCO) since last year.

Recently, a popular asam laksa stall in Petaling Jaya shared that one of their customers in Sungai Buloh couldn't afford the delivery costs.

The stall took to their O&S Curry Laksa, Asam Laksa page yesterday, 16 July, to share that they began online delivery to help keep the business afloat as people are not allowed to travel amidst the pandemic.

According to the post, they have been trying to accommodate every single order that comes in but admitted that they have missed out on a few since starting the delivery system.

And last week, they received a call from an elderly man who wanted to place an order.

"Last week, I picked up this call and from the voice, I could tell he is a very old grandpa and he was checking up on delivery and delivery charges. He wanted to order two packets, but the delivery charges were way too expensive than the noodles as he stays at Sungai Buloh," read the post.

"Mentioned to him that it's not worth it and we ended the call but I could feel his disappointment."

The disappointment in the elderly customer's voice left the stall owner with an uneasy feeling. While tired and without the capacity for any more orders, they still decided to take his order and arrange delivery.

The stall sent the customer his order for free and also did not charge anything for the delivery.

We decided to take his order and arrange delivery to him to Sungai Buloh, all for Free.

The next day, the customer reached out to the stall to express his joy

According to the customer, he had missed the familiar aroma of the stall's food amidst the MCO.

In screenshots of their WhatsApp interaction shared by the stall owner, the elderly customer expressed his gratitude while sharing that he is 81-year-old and takes care of his wife who is suffering from dementia.

He also shared that prior to MCO he was a regular at the stall.

They noted that they wouldn't have made it so far without the support of their customers.
