The post, which was published on 3 July, has garnered over 2,000 retweets at the time of writing.

The post included an 11-second video of her taking a plate of fried rice to the two elderly women.

"My morning routine every day now," the 21-year-old wrote.

"Whoever wants to help this family, please buy food for them. I've been doing this out of habit after hearing them cry out of hunger downstairs," Ika explained.

She said that the 80-year-old woman can hardly stand properly, while her 40-year-old daughter can only move very slowly.

The netizen revealed that since the mother and daughter got used to her feeding them, they now call out her name when they feel hungry

"My name is Ika. They call me Mika," she wrote in a caption for another post.

In the video, one of the women can be heard asking Ika to make them coffee while handing her coffee sachets from a box.

"Thank you so much," she said repeatedly.

"Every time I send them rice, they're so excited. They will say "Waaaah" every single time," the 21-year-old wrote.

Aside from praising the good Samaritan for her acts of kindness, netizens expressed that they would also like to send food to the Aunties

Ika then included the women's address - No. 205, Block A2, Section 1, Wangsa Maju Setapak - in the thread.

One day after her tweet went viral, Ika updated that, "A kind soul from Twitter delivered some food, so delicious that I salivated."

Meanwhile, others have offered to deliver food to them on specific days of the week, or through GrabFood.
