The hearts of the restaurant staff had gone out to the man when he told them his two children had not been eating, and they were moved to give him food for them.

He added that he respects the man for being willing to swallow his pride for the sake of feeding his children and asked everyone not to judge the man’s situation.

“As long as you don’t resort to stealing, it’s alright, brother. It’s on us!” he added.

While he had not been at Ayam Gepuk Pak Agus when the man came, one staffer called him. Mr Shafiq then watched the CCTV feed of the man coming in asking for food and then asked his staff to prepare the meals and extra rice for him, having determined that the man was in distress and longed to feed his children.

This is not the first time he has helped people in need, he added in an interview with mstar. /TISG
