I was at Starbucks, KLCC grabbing a bite and enjoying my Caramel Macchiato. While texting and halfway through my drink, the waitress asked me if some other people could join me because I was alone. Of course, I agreed.
The table was a small one with only three chairs. When I turned around to see who would share my table, it was a married couple with a little girl.
In Singapore, it's pretty common to share tables but in Malaysia, it is not a common practice.
Anyway, the little girl took a seat and her daddy told her she had to sit on his lap. She obediently agreed although I could see that she wanted to have her own chair.
I quickly 'yam seng-ed" my drink and moved off. The mommy apologised that I had to rush but I told her I was going off and not to worry.
As I moved off and hovered just by the side of the outlet, texting some friends, she came over to me with the little gift (picture above).
I was so taken by surprise. Well, blow me over!!!! A random act of kindness and I was the recipient!!!
I asked her if I could give her a hug and she accepted.
This really made me smile. Now when I am home and I see it again, I am smiling again.
