A father will go to any length to keep his family happy.
Sharing a heart-warming story about a father who wanted to get his children the toys they wanted, a vendor “Harga Rapat” said they approached him recently in Jengka, Pahang.
The father told the vendor he wanted to buy some toys for his kids, but did not have enough money.
As a durian trader, the father asked if he could instead trade some durians for the toys.
The vendor, Mohamad Fakhrullah said the eldest child badly wanted a toy drone he was selling.
“We were moved when we saw how badly the father wanted to fulfil his children’s wishes.
“We have had customers who bargained over the price, but never one who wanted to exchange toys with durians,” said the 29-year-old in a recent Facebook post.
He said he and his partner then put aside the expected profits and agreed to the father’s request.
“The father immediately left and went back to pick some durians. He returned shortly with the durians and exchanged them for the drone, remote control cars and other toys for more than RM200,” he said.
Fakhrullah said the man gave him more than five durians and was delighted that he was able to get his children the toys.
In the Facebook post, he said that the durians were a mix of Musang King and D24 variants.
“Don’t be afraid to share sustenance. Believe me, sustenance has been arranged by God, we just have to work to get it,” he said.
“My business partners and I started from the bottom when we first began selling toys by the roadside during the Movement Control Order (MCO), and are happy to help others in accordance to our ability.”
Fakhrullah and his business partners run a toy shop called Wael Toys along Jalan Kampung Bukit in Bayan Lepas, Penang, and they actively share their journey on their Facebook page Harga Rapat.
