KUALA LUMPUR, June 14 — A Malaysian grandpa had a brilliant idea to step up his “duit raya”-giving game a notch higher with very minimum effort.
Nur Hidayah Suhaimi, 17, recently took to Twitter her unique Hari Raya moment when her grandfather handed her “duit raya” in a plastic medicine envelope.
She posted a photo of her and her cousins’ “duit raya” and said this was the first time that she received her “duit raya” in a medicine envelope which her grandfather used for his heart medicines.
“This is the first time I received my duit raya like this. I wish you a healthy and long life grandpa and grandma,” she said in her post.

Nur Hidayah told mStar that she and her other cousins were surprised when they received their “duit raya” from their grandfather.
“What a great idea,” she said.
“We were all excited to see something unique because before this we were receiving our ‘duit raya’ in the usual envelopes.”

Some users praised the grandpa for his brilliant idea to recycle his plastic envelopes while bringing smile to his grandchildren’s face.
Other users also wished him a healthy and long life to spend with his grandchildren.
