A post detailing how a man found his lost keys thanks to a kind passerby in Penang has gone viral on Facebook

The post has garnered almost 6,000 reactions after it was posted by Facebook user Ken Lim yesterday, 8 December.

In the post, Lim shared that he only realised the keys for his motorcycle were not with him after finishing work at an event in Penang Hill.

According to him, he took the last train down from the hill and he was afraid that he left his keys at the event venue

"When I was going to get my motorcycle, I couldn't find my motorcycle key. I was worried that I might have left my keys on the hilltop," Lim related.

Lim said that he went into a panic mode, which led him to call his mother to bring the spare keys to him.

But things took a turn for the better when Lim picked up his helmet and found his keys rested safely inside it

"When I took the helmet out of the motorcycle, I saw the warmest thing ever," Lim continued.

"A kind person stuck my keys under my helmet and left this note. Although I don't know who you are, but thank you. Sincerely."

The note read, "Don't leave your keys on the motorcycle next time, or else someone will steal it. Remember ya."

The note was neatly punctured into the keychain and the message was written in big letters.

Lim admitted his clumsiness of leaving the keys on the ignition switch and he wished to find the Good Samaritan who had helped him hide the keys.

"Please help me share and find out this kind person, I want to thank him or her in person," Lim concluded the post.

Netizens were touched by the story and many have flocked to the comments section to leave heartwarming messages

"An honest person like this is great to be friends with till death," a Facebook user commented.

Another netizen said he encountered the same incident many times and kind strangers at Gurney Plaza always had his back.

"Yes, there is kindness in society," said a netizen.

"I often left my keys with the motor. And many times, strangers had helped me put them in my jacket or helmet. People at the Gurney (Plaza's) parking often helped me."
