It’s during times of crisis that people need to step up and rally around each other to support and show kindness to those in need.
Recently, a pau vendor decided to stop his van beside a flood relief tent to hand out free paus to the victims.

Kuan Chee Heng or fondly known as Uncle Kentang by Malaysians shared on his Facebook page of the kind pau seller who gave out free paus to the hungry and tired flood victims.
He wrote: “A great pau seller, Malaysia is crazy! This uncle parked his van next to the flood relief tents. He said to call everyone over and eat some paus for free.
“Uncle, you made me cry. He brought a van full of pau and shared them with those who were hungry. How kind!” he said.
Uncle Kentang was so touched by the pau seller’s action, he even nicknamed him Uncle Senyum Pau because he is always smiling.
“This is Malaysia. I don’t know his name. When I asked, he just smiled so I named him Uncle Senyum Pau. This is Malaysia that is brave. Living in Malaysia is great,” he said in his caption.
