Warm water RM2: The dealer’s license will not be renewed – MPPD

PORT DICKSON: The Port Dickson Corporation Council (MPPD) will not renew the licenses of traders who charge RM2 for warm water at Medan Selera Seri Bayu here which expired last month.

MPPD Chairman, Mohd Zamri Mohd Esa said that the action was taken following a complaint received at once to avoid misunderstandings with other traders who claimed to be affected due to the action of expensive food charges.

“We gave the trader until this March to vacate the shop and we had to take this action because the shop had been infected many times.

“It interferes with the business of other traders and gives a negative image to the food court area. Maybe he can do business elsewhere after this,” he told Sinar Harian on Wednesday.

He said, he does not deny that the cost of living and the rising price of raw materials is one of the factors that traders charge expensively.

However, he said, it cannot be used as an excuse to charge unreasonable prices.

“When a story like this comes up, there is a slight negative perception towards other food traders in Port Dickson who are branded expensive.

“But it may only happen to a small number of traders and as far as my observation goes, food prices in Port Dickson are still reasonable,” he said.

Sinar Harian previously reported that a restaurant charged RM2 for warm water and RM1 for plain water.

The receipt was shared by a customer on his Facebook post on Tuesday and went viral.

The total amount of the bill uploaded by the customer involved, including food and other drinks, is RM102.

He also advised the public to be careful if they go to eat at the shop in Port Dickson.
