Life is not lived till it’s lived for others.

At the mission, Zainal Abidin also presented monetary assistance and food baskets to five families that were severely impacted by the flood catastrophe.
Staying true to the Malay custom, Zainal Abidin recited a pantun during his meet-up with Kampung Teladas residents:
Kalau pergi Tanjung Keramat,
Anak manis jangan diangkat,
Bersama kita memohon rahmat,
Moga majlis mendapat berkat.
Lebat Kemiri pohonnya rendah,
Dahan terikat tali perkasa,
Sepuluh jari kami menadah,
Mohon berkat yang Maha Esa.
Keluarga Boustead Plantations stands in solidarity with victims of the flood catastrophe. May the affected be given strength in overcoming this unfortunate event.
