PETALING JAYA, May 16 — It’s safe to say you won’t be seeing actress Maya Karin at any lavish spreads for breaking fast in hotels.
“I’m so fed up with the ridiculous prices of Ramadan buffets,” she said in her Twitter account earlier today.
“And people and companies still pay!”
Attached to Maya’s tweet was a link to a website with a listing of Ramadan buffets in Kuala Lumpur and Petaling Jaya.
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
“RM150 to RM200 for adults, RM 80 to R100 for kids! Kids!
“What do they eat? A little bit of rice, and a little bit of chicken. Or maybe a little bit of spaghetti.”
Saying it was a matter of principle, Maya added, “I refuse any hotel buka puasa now.
“If you eat here, don’t complain about the economy.”
Her tweets have gone down well, immediately garnering a large number of retweets, with everyone agreeing that the prices were indeed ridiculous.
We have boycotted long long time ago. Then for those yang meraikan anak-anak yatim, should treat anak-anak yatim like VIPs not place them seated at the back.— Nurlina Hussin (@nur1inahussin) May 16, 2019
A user pointed out that it contradicted the purpose of fasting in the Holy Month.
