It’s officially the holy month of Ramadan, when billions of Muslims around the world observe a month of fasting for religious and spiritual reasons. During this time, restaurants and hotels in Malaysia and across the world host lavish special buffets for those breaking their fast.

However, it looks like a large number of Malaysians don’t approve of these buffets, and that sentiment became more evident when local actress Maya Karin shared her thoughts on Twitter.

Just yesterday (16th May), the Malaysian actress took to Twitter to share a list of Ramadan buffets, noting their high price ranges and how they probably aren’t worth the cost. She added that she refused to go for any Ramadan buffets out of principle. 

Her tweet soon garnered over 14,000 retweets and had many other Malaysians agreeing with her sentiments, sparking a conversation about the necessity of Ramadan buffets.

While some just agreed that these buffets were overpriced, a good number of netizens also said that they contribute a lot to food wastage. Some even said that the sheer lavishness of these buffets defeats the purpose of Ramadan.

According to recent reports, about 20,000 tons of food is discarded by restaurants and hotels every week during Ramadan, which is a 5,000-ton increase from the 15,000 tons of food that is normally thrown away by these establishments in other months.

In 2017 alone, Malaysia reportedly spent over RM2 billion on solid waste management, and a large proportion of the food that was discarded was actually fit for consumption.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you agree with what these netizens are saying? Let us know in the comments section!
