SINGAPORE - An employee of fast-food joint Kentucky Fried Chicken has been lauded for taking extra effort to serve one of her customers.

Ms Muza, who works at KFC Bukit Merah, was spotted going the extra mile while serving a partially blind elderly man.

Ms Dora Ong, who witnessed the good deed when she visited the fast-food joint on Feb 20, posted about it on her Facebook account.

According to Ms Ong, the elderly man, who was previously seen selling tissue paper, entered the outlet and ordered a piece of chicken.

Ms Muza not only took his order, but went on to assist him to his table and bring him his food. She also paid for his food which was upgraded from his original order to a full meal including a drink and fries.

Ms Ong's post has attracted much attention on Facebook, with many applauding Ms Muza's compassion and friendliness, including her employer KFC. The restaurant posted on their own account, praising Ms Muza's act, saying "We hope she's got you smiling, too!"

Ms Ong, who runs a design firm, told The Straits Times that she saw the elderly man selling tissue nearby and gave him some money. When she saw him enter the outlet, she was happy thinking that the money she gave him was getting him a meal. She said Ms Muza immediately left the counter when she saw the man, and accompanied him to a seat.

Ms Ong, who has been based in Kuala Lumpur for the past 16 years and was back in Singapore to visit her parents for Chinese New Year, said she was touched by the kind act. "At the end of the day, going home is very heartwarming, and to witness an incident like this, to me, really brings Singapore to a new level of humanity."
