He shared his frustration in Facebook group Complaint Singapore on Monday (25 Jan).
Fortunately for Mr Amirul, a kind stranger contacted him and generously offered a new bike.
Man finds bicycle missing outside Rochor MRT station
On Monday (25 Jan), Mr Amirul posted that his Dahon Mariner D8 folding bike had gone missing.
He claimed to have parked the bike which he used to travel to work just outside Exit B of Rochor MRT station.
As the railing where he originally parked his bicycle was left with only a picked lock, he surmised that the vehicle had been stolen.
Heartbroken over the loss of his means of commute, Mr Amirul appealed for netizens to keep a lookout for his bike.
Stranger surprises man with a new bicycle
Later that night, Mr Amirul took to the Facebook group again to share about a most pleasant surprise.
A kind stranger who had seen his appeal apparently reached out to offer some help.
According to Mr Amirul, the kind soul is also a member of the Facebook group. He had contacted Mr Amirul directly and offered him a replacement bicycle.
Pleasantly surprised by the stranger’s generosity, Mr Amirul referred to him as an “angel without wings”.
The kind stranger, in his exchange with Mr Amirul, said he helped simply because he was able. The exchange in Malay translates to, “Since I’m able, I should help.”
Mr Amirul could only thank him profusely in response.
Good Samaritan brightens up man’s day
Thanks to the kind-hearted stranger, Mr Amirul can now travel to and from work easily again.
This heartwarming incident between the 2 men prove that even the smallest gesture out of the blue can make someone else’s day.
