Malaysia Women Becomes A Grab Driver At 72 After Bad Investment – Inspiring Story Touches Netizens' Hearts

Rasamany Vettivelu’s story about spending time as a Grab driver getting people to their destination safely at the advanced age of 72 has captured the hearts of netizens. Commenting on her job as a Grab driver, Rasamany said: “Thanks to the amazing people I meet every day, it helps me forget why I had to do it in the first place. I have grown to love it.” One commenter, Albert, said Rasamany “is going to inspire a lot of people” as she had shown how one must “never give up in life”. Netizens said they had immense respect for the enterprising pensioner as she had shown she was a strong woman who managed to bounce back after all the challenges she faced. More amazingly, she remained positive despite the setbacks in her life. Rasamany’s plight began when she lost her savings after a bad decision to invest some RM500,000 of her EPF and life savings in a gold investment company. Then in November last year, she lost her daughter who was 37 and had Down Syndrome. Her daughter’s passing left her “ devastated beyond words” with a “huge emptiness” in her heart. Another comment read: “You are amazing and an inspiration to all seniors. Many would have given up with such a blow at your golden years.” Others said she was brave to persevere at her age. “Salute you, Aunty,” said another. “Unlike others who complain, whine and blame others for their misfortunes, you take it upon yourself to alleviate the situation” The enterprising pensioner has a positive attitude, saying, “Everyone has problems and stories to share, but it is how we persevere and make the best of what life has to offer that makes it all interesting.”

    I am also 70 and still working. If I don’t work I will be talking to the 4 walls at home. At least now I had to get up on time to reach the office punctually. What if I have no job. Then I will be sleeping and sleeping and my bones will start aching. I advise those ladies who just hang around the house doing nothing to find a not-too-stressful job otherwise die faster hehe
