In the tapestry of Malaysian streets, we encounter various stories, and sometimes, life throws in a curveball. Recently, the Maran branch of the Malaysian Social Welfare Department shared a tale that left us all scratching our heads.

Picture this: a night market in Sri Jaya, Pahang, bustling with activity. Amidst the market stalls, a man in traditional attire stands, holding a paper bag, seeking sympathy from passersby. His small hands and silent demeanor hint at a different tale, one that prompted the enforcement officers of JKM Maran to approach him during an anti-begging operation.

Asking about his purpose brought no response. The man seemed deaf and mute. Intrigued, they sought his identification, only to find a surprising twist. He wasn’t deaf; he simply had differently-abled hands. The plot thickened when he mentioned his identity card was in his car.

Follow the JKM enforcers they did, and lo and behold, the beggar, initially garnering sympathy for his supposed disabilities, hopped into a premium Proton X70. The revelation prompted further investigations, unraveling that he resided in Balok, Kuantan, and frequented night markets for his unique form of alms-seeking.

What’s even more astonishing is his admission that the Proton X70 was indeed his, coupled with receiving a Disabled Worker’s Allowance from JKM since 2001. Turns out, the beggar’s nightly endeavor can rake in up to RM500 in just 4 to 5 hours.

JKM, despite the unexpected twist, issued a warning, urging the public to ensure their donations reach those truly in need.

So, next time you’re feeling generous at the night market, make sure you’re not inadvertently financing a premium ride. Life, it seems, can be a night market surprise!
