Ming is a very creative boy who loves to make things and he would love the chance to create his fanciful inventions.

He didnā€™t have the money to buy the things to make his inventions, and was wondering what to do when the sound of the Karung Guni manā€™s car horn beeped. This gave Ming an idea: he would become Karung Guni boy and make things out of things he collected instead. So he went door-to-door to his neighbours asking for things they no longer wanted. Soon he had enough to build his machine. The grateful neighbours came to the unveiling of Mingā€™s invention and were delighted to see that he had built a machine that would serve as a helper for them, whenever they needed an extra hand.
