A video showing a woman offering a bag of fried chicken to two children loitering outside a KFC outlet in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah has won Malaysians' hearts online
In the 13-second long video, once the woman handed them the KFC meal, the children can be seen quickly fumbling through the bag with excitement to see what is inside.
Before the video ends, the man behind the camera calls out to the children and both of them give him a thumb-up as thanks.
"The moment when you see this true reaction from the less fortunate kids. I'm speechless," netizen Samuel Lee Wui Phung wrote in the caption of the video.
"God bless. COVID virus (sic), [please] go away! The people are suffering."
Speaking to SAYS, Lee said he initially gave the children RM3
He said the incident took place at 2.30pm on Sunday, 1 November, while he and his girlfriend were out buying lunch for his employees.
"I saw the kids and they look like they are homeless or pendatang asing tanpa izin (PATI). I don't know lah what is their status. So I decided to give them money," said Lee, who runs a car repair garage and a sneaker shop.
"At first, I give them RM3 only."
"I see the brother and sister counted the money so happily, then I took [my phone out] to record the 'moment'."
Lee said when his girlfriend came out from the KFC outlet for the second time, she told him that she bought one set of KFC's dinner plate combo for them.
According to his girlfriend, the set meal came with fried chicken, rice, and a beverage.
