Malaysian Woman Gives Out Flowers Annually In Memory Of Late Mother

While Mother’s Day is a time of celebration for many, it can also be painful for those who have lost their mums.

Whether due to illness or accidents, not all of us have the privilege of spending a long time with our mothers.

Unfortunately, this was the case for one Malaysian woman, who lost her mother to cancer during her schooling years.

The woman, Leah, replied to the OP’s tweet saying that this is an activity she does with her friends every year.

They have actually been doing this for the past nine years, which would have been 11 if not for the two years of Covid-19 lockdowns.

She also revealed that she lost her mother at a young age when she was still in school.
