An ice-cream seller got the surprise of his life recently thanks to his seven loving children.
Wanting to surprise him with something big, the children bought him a brand new car and his reaction was so heartwarming.
According to a report in Malay Mail, one of the children Haziq Safwan Norzaman shared how his father broke down in tears after learning of the surprise gift.
The video of the father from Ipoh shedding tears of emotion as he learnt about his brand new Proton Persona was viewed over 150,000 times on Twitter.
Haziq said the last time he saw his father crying was when he scored 10As in his Sijil Pelajaran Malaysia (SPM) examinations seven years ago.
“When I came down from the school stage after receiving my SPM results, I saw how watery and red my dad’s eyes looked while he was on the phone with my late grandmother to share the good news with her,” he told mStar.
Everyone was in tears
Haziq said the emotional situation made the siblings tear up as well.
The sibling apparently took about a month to plan the surprise along with their mother.
Haziq said that he sorted out the instalment payments and bank loans for the car through his brother who lives in Kuantan.
He and two of his siblings then travelled to Kuantan with his father, tricking him into believing that there were travelling there to return a car that he had borrowed from his brother.
“He was confused at first and asked us how we were going to get back to Ipoh.
“We had to lie and say that we were going to keep borrowing my brother’s car, but in reality, we were going to drive home with our dad’s new present,” he said.
He added that the Proton Persona is also a gift to celebrate his parents’ 33rd marriage anniversary.
Aww…what a lovely surprise for the hard-working father!
