Why you pay extra for oil on AirAsia

Hello hello. I sorry I never write for so long already. But I was very busy with my works and no mood to write my flog. Thank you to the so many people asking about my flog. I am very touch by your support. In the long time I never write, I still taking photo. So I will share with you some of the photo I was taking all this time.

First I want to show you about my trip. I sit aeroplane go to Bangkok for holiday. And I choose AirAsia because it is cheap. It is not because I like the LCCT - acutaly I hate it because it feel so low class. But I got no choice because the AirAsia is half price of MAS! But now with the MAS cheap fare, I hope I no need to go to LCCT anymore.

So I was quite excited about my trip. I hardly sit aeroplane, so I was all night very excited. The night before I not eating so much because I was excited, so when I am there at the airport, I actually quite hungry. But I didn't waste time eating there because I want to go and queue up to get onto the aeroplane early so that I can get a good seat.

On the plane, AirAsia is actually very clever. They give you food, but you must pay for it. But it is still a good deal, because even if I pay RM8 for a nasi lemak, I still save more money than if I fly MAS where I can get the nasi lemak included in the ticket price. But if I pay RM700 for AirAsia and MAS is RM1400, which mean my nasi lemak is costing RM700! Actually I think that is too expensive.

Somemore the AirAsia say that New Straits Times say that the nasi lemak is one of the best. Of course we don't know if New Straits Times is nasi lemak expert or not. Also don't know what means by "one of the best" - is it one of the best in Malaysia? one of the best in the world? or one of the best in Sepang? or one of the best in Air Asia plane? But still I think Tony Fernandes is a honest person, so if he say it is one of the best, I think so it must be the best one. So I order nasi lemak on the plane. The picture on the menu is looking very nice.
But when I open up the nasi lemak, I am SHOCK! The nasi lemak in the picture and the one in the container are different looking.

First you can see how oily the nasi lemak sambal is - the oil even come up to the side of the plate. And I cannot eat all the nasi lemak because the bottom part is all cover in oil. It look quite scary because I know that oily foods make you fat. And if I want to be fat, I hope it is not because of the AirAsia nasi lemak. I think so also that AirAsia always saying how the oil price go up that's why they charge fuel surcharge. I think so partly AirAsia is responsible for the cooking oil price go up because they use so much in their sambal. I don't know who this Pak Nasser is, but I think so he should be given a lesson in how to cook sambal with less oil.

Second, where is the 2 piece of cucumber and one piece spring onion? I think so these are cheap things, so Air Asia shouldn't be stingy with cucumber and spring onion. Anyway, I eat the nasi lemak because I got no choice. I already pay for it, and of course I don't think they will give me a partial refund because got no cucumber and spring onion. I am a bit unhappy about it, so I hope so next time I can get a cheap MAS ticket and fly MAS instead.
