I eat once a day

Well, not me – fortunately I get to stuff my face with home-baked bread and delicious Malaysian food every day.

However, not everyone is so fortunate… This is Ahmed Mohamed Abdul who was a truck driver in Somalia, but had to leave because of the violence there. He came to Yemen and now ekes a living washing cars, making RM5-8 each day.

"I eat once a day, twice if I have earned good money," he said.

"In the morning I eat two pieces of bread with vegetables, and at night, if there's money, I eat bread again with tea.” (BBC)
