In a TikTok video that has since gone viral, a worker at Restoran Mee Razak in Kedah can be seen looking puzzled by a long essay-like order he received for three nasi kandar
Yesterday, 29 September, TikTok user Weeda uploaded a video of her brother-in-law, Sharil Hizam, reading out the long list of requests.
The 31-year-old, who hails from Jitra, Kedah, can be seen holding a long receipt for an order of two nasi kandar ayam goreng and one nasi kandar kari kambing.
Weeda told SAYS that this is Sharil's first time receiving an 'essay' for only three nasi kandar orders
In the video, Sharil looked perplexed as he read out the contents of the customer's detailed requests.
"The customer ordered nasi kandar kari kambing but also requested for a few pieces of chicken breast with it! Unfortunately, that can't be done as adding chicken requires extra charges," Weeda said.
"There was also a long and detailed request for the nasi kandar's gravy, as the customer wanted it to be extra spicy and banjir until no rice should be seen."
Weeda added that Sharil wasn't overwhelmed and managed to humour the customer's whims because he received the order after lunch and business was slow.
"He did his best to provide the customer with whatever that was available, including making sure that the various requirements for the extra gravy was met," she said.
At the time of writing, the TikTok video has been viewed 408,400 times and received 38,800 likes from netizens who were amused by the whole ordeal
Even Rapid KL commented, "The customer's [Bahasa Melayu] must be A+."
"Next time, foodpanda must limit the number of words that a customer can type. I'm worried what if a customer writes in the recipe to cook," a TikTok user said.
Another netizen said, "The customer wants the worker to rap it (the order)."
