Thanks to inflation, the rising price of goods is pretty much inevitable nowadays. Many food vendors have no choice but to increase the price of their menu to make profit. But here’s a question:

Would you pay RM15 for one serving of nasi lemak with chicken from bazaar Ramadhan?

A Malaysian named Adam recently had to pay RM15 for a portion of Nasi Lemak Ayam Berempah that he bought from the Ramadhan bazaar. Here are the side dishes that came with it:

  • Perkedel (Vegetable fritters), with a size similar to a 50 sen coin.
  • A small tempe

Adam was not happy with the price, and his post in the Facebook group Penduduk Flat Puchong Permai was full of sarcasm.

Speaking to WORLD OF BUZZ, Adam said that he wished somebody would sarcastically question the vendor about the ridiculous price.

“Ask her, how long has she been selling nasi lemak with that price? Why the absence of price tags? How many houses and sport cars have she managed to buy from selling nasi lemak at this price?” he rhetorically asked WORLD OF BUZZ.

In the comment sections, some netizens told Adam that he should just cook at home but he should’ve also checked the price with the vendor prior to the purchase. In case you’re wondering the same, here’s what Adam has to say:

“I fought for a cheaper price. But eventually, I paid because I wanted to show how some vendors are exploiting customers.”

“Dear vendors, stop taking advantage of us!”

As a disappointed customer, Adam also had a message to the vendors out there, and he wants them to stop taking advantage of customers.

“Don’t be so cruel by just thinking about profit.”

Adam added that he wanted to make the matter viral because he refuses to see anyone becoming a victim of vendors who oppress customers. He clarified that he is not stopping anyone from buying Nasi Lemak from the said vendor, but he highly recommends not to.

“I am not bias and I have no personal interests. I just don’t want to see others getting oppressed by vendors like them.”

It seems that every day, more Malaysians are coming forward to express their dissatisfaction with bazaar Ramadhan, although the issue of overpricing and food quality happens everywhere. Regardless, do you think RM15 is too much just for nasi lemak? What are the shenanigans that you’ve personally experienced with other food vendors?
