Facebook user Gary Chong, spotted a group of ”mature and elderly Asian gentlemen” walking in a group picking up rubbish along the streets in Bandar Sunway led to a surprise that one of them is Malaysian millionaire Tan Sri Dato’ Sri Jeffrey Cheah.
The facebook post:
Today, I was taking a little evening stroll around Bandar Sunway when I chanced upon a group of mature and elderly looking Asian gentlemen who were walking in a pack and picking up little bits of trash on their way, be it small bits of used tissue paper to little strands of plastic strewn on the pavements and the green landscape around the surrounding buildings.
At first, by their actions and mannerisms, I assumed that they were a bunch of Japanese tourists due to the fact that the last time I observed such pack behaviour was in Osaka and Kyoto.
As I pranced closer though, I overheard that they had distinct Malaysian accents. Could they be Singaporeans? I thought to myself, there is definitely no way they could be Malaysians.
I walked past them, still mildly intrigued by who they were and saw a recognisably familiar looking face heading this pack of old gentlemen, wait…could it be? After a quick google image search… it was none other than Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Jeffrey Cheah!
Respect with a capital “R” to this guy for leading his team who by their age, should be corporate directors and the big guns of the Sunway Group.
As they walked towards Sunway Pyramid, I thought, wow, this is truly an amazing thing to see a billionaire and giant icon across a multitude of industries, doing something so simple and humble, literally without any press coverage, any sort of elaborate entourage of media/CSR presence via wearing corporate uniforms and etc.
Doing his little bit to take care of the community and infrastructure which he and his group has built over the years…such an inspiration!
The only thing which would have been cool to seal the deal on his simple and humble act was if he exited the scenario via a simple Proton rather than a blazing red Ferrari! Lol.
Good on you Tan Sri! A billionaire hero who doesn’t have to don a cape and save his city in the dark of night.
