The father, Wan Razali Wan Mohd, shared that it was hard to let go of the motorcycle, but he had no choice as things were tough and there was no other way to come up with the money for his daughter’s studies.
“I had no choice but to sell the motorcycle to a used vehicle agent for RM1,000,” he told Harian Metro.
According to Wan Razali, who turned 58 last month, he experienced intense sadness as the motorcycle had “sentimental value, wonderful memories, and one of the priceless gifts that my wife gave me”.
It was a Honda EX5 that his late wife gave him about 20 years ago on his birthday.
“…she knew I preferred riding a motorcycle … when she died, I was jobless, but I needed to find ways to support my children,” he shared, adding that his eldest daughter was about to enter college at the time.
