M’sian Man Left Speechless By Pisang Goreng Slices That Are Smaller Than His Fingers 

Malaysians don't play when it comes to pisang goreng sizes, that's for sure.

In the age of social media, it seems that no aspect of daily life is too trivial to escape the scrutiny of online critics.

The latest sensation to capture the internet’s attention is a video posted by a disgruntled customer who was less than thrilled with his recent pisang goreng (fried banana) purchase.

Finger vs pisang goreng sizes

In the video, the unnamed man, seated in his car, holds up a small piece of fried banana, comparing it to his fingers for scale.

“You guys, look at this. I just bought pisang goreng for RM3. My fingers are bigger, you know? Which, I don’t really care about that problem,” he said.

However, his amusement quickly turned into bewilderment as he continued:

“But why is it so thin? If there are friends or anyone passing by, if I wave this pisang goreng, they won’t see it. This is really bad. I just bought it, but well, I’ll just accept it. Sticky too. Oh, this is bad,” he lamented in the video, which he shared on TikTok.

The customer revealed that he had paid RM3 for a serving that included nine pieces of the fried banana delicacy.

Seller’s anonymity

Despite his disappointment, he chose not to disclose the location of the stall, explaining that he didn’t want to jeopardise the seller’s livelihood.

“Maybe oil has been very expensive. I’m sorry I can’t show you where it is. I feel sorry for the seller,” he added in a subsequent video.

At the time of writing, the video has garnered 100k views.

Netizens join the fun

Unsurprisingly, the comments section of his videos was filled with humorous responses from netizens who couldn’t resist joining in on the fun.
