Haja Muhinudeen on the exterior, looks like one of those many forgotten men who serve drinks and food in regular ‘mamak’ outlets.

But a deeper look into his life reveals that he was a man with load of talents, an eye for knowledge and a knack for humor, and also that he has stayed in Malaysia for the past 48 years.

Now a worker at a mamak shop in Jalan Kemuja, Bangsar, his only remaining dream- at the age of 52, is to be a Malaysian, officially.
