Age is just a number. Well, for 68-year-old “Atok”, working as a GrabFood delivery rider is all part of an honest day’s work.
Recently, Malaysians were amazed when videos of “Atok” were shared on TikTok by user, Ashraff Danny, a Grabfood rider also.

He uploaded the video after he said the senior citizen in action heading towards a building entrance in the Klang Valley.
Ashraff said he managed to speak to “Atok” at the motorcycle parking lot and was told that he had been working for the last two months.
“I was a little sad to hear he was doing deliveries to make a living. He was a lorry driver earlier,” wrote Ashraff, adding that he reminded him of his late grandfather.
“Atok” also told him he regularly works around the Damansara area.
Another TikTok user, roseabdullll, later responded saying “Atok” was her favourite customer at the Petronas station in Sri Hartamas where she works.

She said everyone there affectionately refers to the senior citizen as “Abang Jek” or “Atok”.
Netizens have since praised and expressed their admiration to “Atok” for his determination and perseverance.
