Cheated? Not another time!

Is it unethical when you try to put a bad name on someone's business?
Well, i'm not sure if the thing i m posting here is legal or whether it comes from a trusted material, but anyway, instead of having malicious intention to ruin someone's biz, i m here to convey the message
"Please check the food price before ordering"

As circulated over the net:
Be careful n check prices especially when ordering fish dishes. This is not the first time we hear of this type of complaint and it won't be the last as we are all trusting people who don't normally ask about food prices before we order, some say 'pai seh' to ask price and "if you need to ask the price means you can't afford to eat the dish" ......" if no money don't order expensive food". I still think it is best to ask for the price if not sure to avoid such expensive bill.

Last week, I brought my guests to Genting Highlands. After a day 'above the clouds', we decided to have dinner at the Gohtong Jaya area on the way down. We ordered some dishes and decided to have a steamed fish as well. So the captain recommended 'sultan fish'. The steamed fish came. HALF, and plain steamed. Good & fine. But when the bill came, it came to over $500 !! We were shocked !! We were told the fish was 1.4kg (& please bear in mind, its ONLY HALF A FISH ) at RM 320 per kg! RM 420!! This was daylight robbery. We were not informed by the Captain that a kg of the Sultan fish would cost us RM 320 and there was also no signs of such pricings anywhere in the restaurant. When we checked with the cashier, she told us, its correct !!
Of cos, it was our mistake for not asking the price first. Anyway, on the way back to KL, we stopped at Unique Seafood, PJ, where one can choose a live fish. The most expensive Soon Hock swimming in the tank is RM135 per kilo. Asked them about the Sultan fish, it is going for RM100 a kilo. Will be sending this letter to the newspapers, Tourism board, etc etc; and friends, pls pass on to all on yr email list.

Nux's Comment: I'm shocked to see the bill (though is not mine!). I felt sorry for the victims above. Hopefully, by doing smart (asking price), we could prevent such "felt cheated" situation.

Thats really daylight robbery. Actually you should not only check the price of fish but all seafood cause they price it by the KG.
