As Malaysians, we are often told to respect and be kind to each other, regardless of their background. However, the case is different in this video that went viral on Twitter recently. This lady had encountered a foul-mouthed individual who apparently mocked her while they were dining at a restaurant recently.
The video, capturing the incident, was reposted by Twitter page @isusemasaviral, garnering 6,000 retweets at the time of writing (Friday, 10th June). According to the tweet, a female customer claimed that she was badly berated by the owner of an eatery called Restauran 35, located in Bandar Hilir, Melaka.
Orang Melaka bangga konon bahasa dia orang lah paling kasar tapi hakikat nampak macam orang bodoh je kalau guna bahasa kasar tambah-tambah orang tua nampak lagi bangang.

The customer, Sis Yana Lashes, took to her Facebook to detail her unfavourable experience while having her meal at the restaurant with her family (and relatives from Singapore). She shared, “We arrived around 2pm that day. After looking through the side dishes offered at the restaurant, I asked the lady, ‘Is this the only food left?’ to which she briefly responded, ‘Yes’. Afterwards, another woman chimed in and said, ‘Look at the time you arrive. Even if we serve elephants (at the restaurant), they would be gone by now’.”
Although she was initially startled by the latter’s statement, Yana revealed that she and her family went ahead and ordered their food. Apparently, the restaurant owner continued being condescending while she and her family were having their meal. Things took a turn for the worse when Yana wanted to make a payment at the counter.
According to her, she ended up paying RM240 for the overall lunch meal. “My mom told me, this was the first time she ever met someone this rude. Although the ‘makcik’ is known for her foul-mouthed personality, there are still a lot of customers coming to her restaurant. But most of them are visitors, they are not originally from Melaka,” she said in her post.
Not only that, Yana went on and claimed that the lady had insulted her for ordering an omelette dish. She revealed, “The lady said, ‘If you don’t have money, then don’t bring your parents here’. It feels like my heart just shattered into pieces. It sure looks like she’s living an unfortunate life.” At the end of her post, Yana felt that the woman shouldn’t be doing business, especially with that rude attitude.
The posting was flooded with several reactions from local netizens. While some criticised the restaurant owner for her unethical trait, others have also called for the public to boycott the restaurant. Read what they said here:
