A Malaysian student accidentally overindulged when they ordered a frappuccino from Starbucks that came up to a whopping RM44.10

Sharing their silly blunder on MMU Confessions on Facebook, a confession page set up for students of a university, they described the slip up as a "great resentment event".

"I couldn't understand the Starbucks staff's English, (so) I just nodded. By the end, the staff member even laughed at me. I regret it," said the anonymous student.

They attached a photo of their order receipt in the confession post, which saw them paying at least RM19 for toppings

It is believed that the student ordered a venti-sized Belgium Chocolate Frappuccino, a new item that costs RM21.50.

The toppings they unknowingly added are believed to be caramel drizzle, cookie crumbs, and vanilla cream, among others.

The student was also charged RM1 for a reusable straw. After 6% service tax, they had to fork out RM44.10 for the drink at the Starbucks outlet in Berjaya Times Square, KL.
