Sedikit-sedikit lama-lama jadi bukit is a Malay proverb that means “Bit by bit, over time, it will accumulate into a mountain”.
This saying came across my mind when I recently saw the Coke bottle which I had filled up with 5 cent coins. I believe it took me a couple of years to completely fill it up. I recalled whenever I got any 5 cent coins, I would faithfully drop them into the bottle. Bit by bit, slowly but surely, I filled up the 330ml coke bottle with 5 cent coins. I couldn’t recall how much is inside but you all can make a guess in the comment below…… no price if you get it right J. I will find some time to count them and update it in the comment later.
This saying is actually reflective of the many success stories that we see and hear. I am pretty sure that the 5 figure dividend you hear about have a modest beginning.
