KUALA LUMPUR, March 28 — After earning criticism for telling a restaurant to remove an advertisement that poked fun at Lim Guan Eng, several DAP leaders led by Guan Eng himself dined at the eatery tonight to prove they can take a joke, even if it’s at their expense.
In a snapshot of their dinner session that was posted on social media, lawmakers Guan Eng, his father Lim Kit Siang, Seputeh MP Teresa Kok, Petaling Jaya Utara MP Tony Pua, Segambut MP Lim Lip Eng and several others, can be seen smiling as they sat together for a meal at the Damansara Perdana cafe.
DAP MPs just couldn't resist Skohn's signature lamb stew at below market prices! pic.twitter.com/uuP2vdGAsS— Lim Kit Siang (@limkitsiang) March 28, 2016
In the posting on his Twitter page, Kit Siang wrote, “DAP MPs just couldn’t resist Skohns signature lamb stew at below market prices!”
The DAP adviser was borrowing the same phrase used by the restaurant – Skohns Canteen – in a parody advertisement on the controversy over Guan Eng’s house buy.
DAP had taken offence to the advertisement and even wrote to the owner with a request to have it removed.
Guan Eng is currently under a corruption investigation over his RM2.8 million purchase of his house on Jalan Pinhorn in George Town.
The Penang chief minister has been accused of engaging in a shady deal to secure the house at a price much lower than its market value.
