Malaysian actress Maya Karin yesterday tweeted about the absurd pricing for Ramadhan buffets.
In her tweet, she shared a list of Ramadhan buffets pricing between RM89.90++ and RM236++.
She’s already gotten almost 8,000 Retweets and 4,500 Likes.
I’m so fed up with the ridiculous prices of Ramadan buffets. And people and companies still pay! 150-200 for adults, 80-100 for kids! Kids! Apa yg diaorang makan? Nasi sikit, ayam sikit, or spagetti sikit. https://t.co/TFWxeWJ7Sn— Maya Karin (@maya_karin) May 16, 2019
And Twitterjaya agrees with her.
In the first place, like it or not, all-you-can-eat buffet is against the spirit of #Ramadan. All we need to break our fast is just a glass of water (or two) and a small portion of food. How can people eat until they’re full, and they’d keep eating until they can no longer eat 😫— You Know Who 🐝 (@iamdnzry) May 16, 2019
Kan??! It doesnt make sense. I havent gone to one for years and I make exceptions if there are family/work events that I cant escape from. Bazar Ramadan prices also are crazy high— sassenach (@hfshzhr) May 16, 2019
It is an outright scam. haha— lamkanahraf (@lamkanahraf) May 16, 2019
Some are quoting shocking numbers related to food wastage caused by these Ramadhan buffets which we wrote about recently as well.
Some Twitter users are sharing memes about the issue.
Today Maya Karin added a thread to her tweet, saying that she is refusing to go for buka puasa buffets on principle.
I refuse any hotel buka puasa buffet now. Principle.— Maya Karin (@maya_karin) May 16, 2019
Siapa makan kat sana jangan meroyan pasal economy.
Some are even standing up against the Ramadhan buffets with her.
That is some major TEA. Our family ditched the whole concept years ago as well, it’s ridiculous— leonardlewis (@shfqhomr) May 16, 2019
I completely agree, that why I decline invited to this places and I let them know the reasons why, the money can be put to better use, the prices are just crazy high— Darth Vadai (@DarthVadai) May 16, 2019
Whilst some others are just being a little cheeky. 😉
Agree 100. Jom berbuka sama2— Zaid Haritha (@Zaidpun) May 16, 2019
Though if you still need to berbuka buffet style, they also shared some more affordable alternatives.
Kak Maya boleh berbuka dekat DARC. Affordable price with variety of food to be chosen and you can enjoy recreational activities there like horse riding and archery. The price already included with the activities too and the place is comfortable! Have a nice day ahead! 🖤 pic.twitter.com/b0MRIjpUO7— [O] Natrah Ali ★ (@tatadinosaur) May 16, 2019
Tapi masih ada juga harga yang masuk akal dekat Ipoh ni. Moh kite pergi berbuka di Syeun Hotel Ipoh. pic.twitter.com/VNANVCfvPm— TenukBergulingGuling (@maktenuk) May 16, 2019
