MALAYSIA: In an unexpected turn of events, students participating in a program organized by an undisclosed state’s education department were left disappointed when they opened boxes labeled “Ayam Goreng McD” (McDonald’s Fried Chicken), only to find water and buns inside.

The incident, brought to light by a teacher named Abdul Muiez, was shared on his Facebook page on 15 August.

According to Muiez, a concerned guardian contacted him regarding their child’s experience in a state-level program hosted by the unnamed state’s education department.

Upon receiving the boxes, the students initially appeared excited.

However, as they eagerly opened the containers, their expressions quickly shifted from joy to dismay.

Muiez recounted a conversation with the guardian, during which it was conveyed that the organizers should have been more attentive to the students’ expectations, as some had hoped for a genuine McDonald’s meal.

Post swiftly caught attention of social media users

The post quickly gained traction on social media, amassing over 5.4 thousand reactions and more than two thousand shares since its upload.

One commenter raised a question about the choice of packaging, wondering why the organizers had chosen to use a McDonald’s fried chicken box for buns and water instead of a more appropriate container.

She suggested that a regular plastic bag would have sufficed, citing a similar incident involving her own child’s school where students were provided with actual McDonald’s burgers after several days of minimal sustenance during an event.
