I've started paying my own zakat fitrah last year. Yeah, I know I'm still
miserably single so people assume my father will pay for it because you're deemed to be under the responsibility of your father (wali) until you're married. I'm not saying it's wrong, it's true, but it's also not the only way to do it.
So I did a bit of reading and what I can conclude is, if you're single and working, and you support yourself, you can pay zakat yourself.
If you can afford a RM30 meal, you sure as hell can afford to pay your own zakat.
