Recently, a 16-seconds video of a 68-year-old food delivery rider has moved Malaysians.

The video was uploaded on TikTok by Ashraf Danny who had bumped into Atuk on his usual rounds of delivering food to customers. Ashraf explains that Atuk who was previously a lorry driver, has been a food delivery rider for the past two months.

According to Malay Mail, he said: “I was saddened when he told me he was doing this for a living. May Atuk be under Allah’s protection and may you get blessed with an abundance of wealth, too.

“Whenever I see Atuk, he reminds me of my grandfather,” Ashraf added. 

Ashraf also said that Atuk usually delivers food in the Damansara area and urged social media users to tip Atuk if they ever meet him.

The video on Twitter has been viewed over 1.1 Million views!

This breaks our heart. Guys, please be kind to Atuk if you come across him delivering food to you.
