A Malaysian Foodpanda delivery rider has won praises from netizens for his earnest effort as a food delivery rider, despite the struggle of having to work with only one arm.

The 23-year-old young man recalled that he fell asleep while riding his motorcycle when the accident happened. “My left arm was badly injured when the bike I was riding skidded off the road divider. We eventually decided to get it amputated,” he said in an interview.

Covering his imperfection with a prosthetic arm

Adding that he has come to terms with what happened, Nabil said he has also gotten used to wearing a prosthetic arm while doing deliveries. He revealed that he chose to wear the prosthetic arm to “cover his imperfection” whilst he’s out there making a living.

“I don’t want people to sympathise with me. I want to stand on my own feet. Also, I want customers to feel comfortable with my presence,” he explained.
