To a certain extent, the young Malaysian generation has become a generation of consumers.
With so many wonderful things available for purchase, it’s hard not to “treat yo’self” every now and then.
And every young Malaysian knows that the one thing they end up spending most of their money on is FOOD.
While we hate to admit it, we totally buy into food trends. But it appears that no matter how excited we get, our parents are usually NOT impressed.
With this in mind, @twt_malaysia recently started a Twitter trend where Malaysians shared how their parents react to and diss their favourite food fad.
The tweets have everyone giggling with embarrassment at these #relatable reactions.
Read on and be prepared to have your favourite dish ruined.
Mexican food is basically papadom and meat wrapped in capati.
Bringing my parents out for dinner at a Mexican place
Dad: what’s this?
D: Oh so like pappadom la. What about this?
D: Ceh like capati with meat inside
M: I’m never bringing you out
Does anyone else’s parents do this?

Hotel cafe’s charge way too much to bring you a pot of hot water and a teabag.
Minum kat hotel:

Atok: aku bayor mahal2 diasuruh bancuh sendiri. Ceh

Your mum can probably make better tomyum than your favourite Korean BBQ spot.
Bring my parent in law to korean bbq all-you-can-eat. Choose tomyum for soup. Then she ask "got no daun limau purut to put in the tomyum? I should bring some next time" 😅😅😅

Food in Kluang will always be cheaper than anywhere you eat
My parents don’t mind if I bring them out for lunch / dinner. But never let them know how much the bill is:
“Mahalnya. Dekat Kluang boleh dapat RMxx (cheaper).”
