Singaporean lodges police report over fried rice being too 'spicy'

JOHOR BARU - A Singaporean man who was so upset after eating a plate of Nasi Goreng Kampung has lodged a police report over how it was apparently too spicy.

Lau Thiam Huat, 60, ordered the plate of fried rice and a glass of warm water at a restaurant along Jalan Bukit Timbalan here for dinner at around 9pm on April 30.

He stated that the fried rice was too hot and spicy, which made his mouth feel uncomfortable until the next day.

He also suspected that the cook put too much chilli into the dish, making it extra spicy and decided to make a police report in case there was a need for a medical check-up after eating the fried rice.

A police report made by a Singaporean man in Johor Baru, Malaysia has gone viral online -- because it was about a plate of nasi goreng kampung having too much spice.

Stomp contributor Popopopo came across a report on Polis Diraja Malaysia (Royal Malaysia Police)'s Facebook page, and was amused by what he saw.

According to The Rakyat Post, the 60-year-old Singaporean man from Taman Jurong had filed a police report because the 'nasi goreng kampung' (local fried rice) he ate along Jalan Bukit Timbalan, Johor Baru was 'too spicy'.

Here are excerpts from the police report:

"Around 9pm on April 30, I went to eat at a shop which I can't recall the name. After I ordered the nasi goreng kampung and warm water, I had my meal, I found that it was extremely hot and too spicy.

"Until today (May 1) I can still taste the spiciness from the rice I ate yesterday. I suspect that they cooked the rice with too much chilli.

"The reason why I am making this report is because I am very unhappy with the rice I ate and wish to go to a hospital for a check-up."

The deputy chief of South Johor Baru Supt Abdul Samad Salleh has confirmed receiving the report, but stated that no action will be taken towards either party because there are no relevant laws about this matter.
