Mydin Defends Mydin and Kedai Rakyat

And Tutoriasl Group 3 students from the MKT1014 class also posed for a photo on Thursday. Really, I have been privileged to have taught all these First Year students.

I made a second visit to the D'Utama Toastmasters Club this month - it's a club with indefatigable members like Gan Teong Hock, Jonathan Moh and others. I may not be knocked dead even with their dogged enthusiasm, but at least, I won't get bored either. I would give this Thursday meeting a 5 out of a 10 score.

Given the disquieting rumpus about Kedai Rakyat shortchanging their customers, Mydin managing director Ameer Ali Mydin - the operator of the government-backed KR1M stores - had no choice but to call for a press conference on Monday where he denied allegations that KR1M sold higher priced but lower quality products. Denial is one thing but he still needs to rebut the allegations. Please provide the evidence. And because he did not do that, how can I even give him the benefit of the doubt?

However, he did concede that there was a misleading label on the 1Malaysia oyster sauce bottle which should instead have stated it was oyster-flavored sauce. Now, if this can happen, isn’t there a strong possibility that the allegations are really true?
