The Invisible and the Price of a Smile
Without flashy clothes, these people put on their boring uniform performing their daily mundane routines.
Some clean the floor, or the toilet, or greet you at the mall, or looking after the cars we park at the basement.
These people, they must probably be earning an average of RM700 monthly. Some of them can't even afford to rent a room, they are the homeless you feed at night. They shower at the nearest mosques or gas station.
What do they expect from us? None. What do they expect, generally? Survivorhood.
The invisibles aren't asking a penny from you. Nor do they expect a Hello from you.
Being the 'luckier' or I shall say, the 'more privileged' ones, how hard it is to make someone's day by throwing a sincere smile. Afterall, since we might not be able to understand their struggles, we might as well acknowledge their existence through a smile.
It could provide them a sense of belonging to the society.
