A video posted by @pokchek906 recently went viral on social media showing the hardworking man enjoying his meal, a plate of white rice with some salt, onions and green chili.

When asked by the user why his meal was so simple, he said that because of this, he’s already saved up RM800,000 and has even bought a house and land in Bangladesh. 

And apparently, he only spends RM300 for his monthly expenses. 

“It's delicious. A simple meal, but as long as I am eating and feel full I’m okay,” he said. 

The video has since garnered over 2.2 million views at the time of writing. Netizens took to the comment section to praise the worker for his patience and perseverance, “I am in awe. I won’t be able to do this even for a day.”

“When I was younger, my family had no money and we had to eat like this. It takes a lot to be able to do this. He’s doing it for his family and I respect him,” one person commented.

Wah, imagine eating like that for years… Hopefully, one day he’ll retire, and get to relax with his family at home and be able to eat whatever he wants with all that money he saved!

What do you guys think of this?
