That was what exactly happened to Mester BlackWater‘s wife during a recent family trip. According to his Facebook post, the couple decided to take their children for a brief trip to Genting Highlands.

After the kids had their fun, the family sat down for a meal at Marrybrown’s in Sky Avenue. “As usual, kids can sometimes be a handful. In all that chaos, we didn’t realize that my wife had left her purse behind,” the post explains. It only hit them when they were already well on their way back to Raub, Pahang.

It seemed like all hope was lost

Clueless, they started to feel like the situation was hopeless. As soon as they got home, his wife tried their luck by contacting the Marrybrown’s restaurant. A female staff known as Kogi, came to answer the phone.

The wife began to describe her purse as well as the contents inside. There was no identification card, but money for the family’s monthly kitchen allowance. Fortunately, Kogi replied that one of the Marrybrown’s staff had indeed found the purse, and placed it for safekeeping.

Kogi initially offered to return the purse via post, but became concerned for its safety. So instead, she suggested banking in back the money to the wife. The couple were touched by Kogi’s willingness to queue at the bank just to safely deposit the money. She even screenshotted proof of payment and attached it in the Whatsapp chat.

“The money is not the most valuable thing, but rather the staff’s honesty, sincerity and respect for their customers.” The husband ended his post saying these workers deserved their due recognition for their exemplary behavior.
