Just now I and my little brother are very hungry, I want to cook but I feel slothful (if my mom know I will be dead meat! haha). Then my brother suggested that we 'tapau' the chicken tandoori at D'Naina.
I continue to look for expired date, and guess what this coca-cola already expired on 10-11-10. Are you nuts! Now already in 2011! My gash! Then me and my brother went to the store and switch back it, how could they selling something that already expired huh?
At that shop, initially the store employees are not giving me to change it, but I have to threatened him to report to the Persatuan Pengguna.
Me: Saya nak tukar coke ini dah expired lah.
The employee: Tak boleh tukar sebab dah buka.
Me: Manalah saya tahu air ini expired. Kalau saya tahu saya tak kan buka lah!
The employee: Ala expired je, ok pergi ambil yang baru *buat muka tidak bersalah*
Me: Senang je awak cakap, nasib baik kitaorang tak minum lagi, kalau dah terminum nanti tiba-tiba sakit macam mana?
The employee: *diam*
I totally pissed off. Suddenly his mom came out and talk to me, "Maaf la adik, tak perasan ada air yang expired, takpe pi tukar lain ye"
What? How come you doesn't realize it's already expired and how come you can sell the expired item! Guess what, all the beverage in the fridge also expired! It is so shameful. Don't ever think that after this I will come again to this shop. Pftt.
The conclusion is, as a smart consumer we have the courage to express our interest. The purchasing power in the hands of the buyer. So if you all have had a problem like this, don't be afraid anymore, just return it back (food or drink) if it expired, dents, which have been opened or stale. If the taukeh shop does not cooperate well, you just hassle to the KPDNKK. You have rights as a consumer.
What is KPDNKK? It is stand for Kementerian Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan.
