UK native Katie Morley found herself in hot water last week following her insulting remark on our national dish nasi lemak via her Twitter. She even gave a 0/10 points for its “wickedly bad” quality.
Most recently, the Telegraph reporter posted a photo of herself enjoying a plate of the scrumptious nasi lemak on the same social media. This came following massive reactions and criticisms given by locals in response to the controversial tweet.
Thank you to all the Malaysians to suggested I should try the real Nasi Lemak. You are right, it’s delicious! Nothing like that BA plane meal I had… pic.twitter.com/Joh1bssJqEADVERTISEMENT
