Is this really happening?!

I just received this forwarded mail. I guess most of you would have received a same one by now. To say I am shocked is putting it mildly. Whether it is true or not, you will have to tell me. Or perhaps a gimmick for actually getting you people in there to actually eat and see if it's for real. Read on:

Hello everyone. I have some interesting news. I was in Pizza Hut (Sunway Pyramid) yesterday and suddenly my friend showed me the bill. The bill contains normal things la (number of person, bill. number and what is ordered). But, what shocked me is that they had space called ' RACE ' .I guess since we were all wearing tudung, they labelled us as 0, which means MALAY. Later, when we went to pay¡­we had no service charge and no tax charge. Still in shock, I peeped into another bill in the counter. In that bill, under the race space, it was labelled as C (which I guess means Chinese). That bill had service and tax charges!!! I started investigating. One of my Sri Lankan friends was labelled as Indian it seems and she also had to pay service and tax charges a few weeks back. What I ' m wondering is that¡­does anyone know about this? I find it rather strange that they charge service and tax charge using race in Pizza Hut, out of all the places! WE SHOULD NOT GO EAT AT PIZZA HUT!



Whaddaya think?

sweetpea,
I'm not a pizza fan in M'sia so I'm not quite sure bout this issue. Maybe I should check this out cause of curiosity.

But before I step into Pizza Hut, should I wear a songkok and sarong? kekeke

"no service charge and no tax charge" !! that is so unfair !! *grunting*

Sweetpea said...

hi all, i will be disappointed and very annoyed if this is true. although i don't plan to live in the country anymore, and racism is found everywhere, this is outright outrageous, it's plain for you to see and a smack in the face.

then don't go on promoting malaysia as a multi-racial country living in harmony. apa, so snake-faced, good for the world to see but treating others differently?

Yea, i read this e-mail on last year, had been passing around for quite long lo. My friend said yea wor, but i don't know how true, because i'm not pizza hut fans.

WH, mamabok and annie - am not a great fan either but that's not the point. the govt. always talk about harmony but this is disintegrating the nation!
