A man, known as Lee Hui Sen, willingly gave up his hard-earned RM44,500 for a family that he has probably not even seen in person.
He had forked out the large sum of money as a down payment for a house that was on auction, but decided to cease his wishes to buy the house when he noticed the family’s plight just as he went to check out the property.
Though he liked the house, he did not have the heart to kick out a family in distress from their home.
His handwritten letter which was left at the house's mailbox, moved many people and it's easy to see why:
"Dear sir, I am Lee Hui Sen, the man who bought your house that was being auctioned.
I apologise because I had bought the house and that may have caused you and your family members to fret and worry about this matter.
That day, my family had gone to the house, sir, and we have seen the children's clothes outside the house. My family and I do not have the heart to chase you out of the house, if after we bought the house, sir.
We decided not to buy the house after all, even when we’ve gone through all the trouble to pay RM44,500.
We will lose the money, but the money will still go into your house’s bank account. We hope this can be of some assistance to you."
He went on to offer some advice, hoping that the family would work towards getting a closure after this ordeal
"Try to negotiate with the bank. Restructure your loan, otherwise, your house would be auctioned again.
Try to discuss with your bank to lengthen the instalment plan, so that the monthly instalment could be lessened according to your capabilities to repay.
Dear sir, this is only my personal advice. If you can, please do throw away the small trees and flower pots at the side of your house so that your house would look brighter and invite positive energy into the home.
Good luck and have a nice living forever to you and your family."
