Malacca Chief Minister, Ali Rustam says that he only spent RM600,000 for the wedding dinner. And not RM1.3 million as claimed by DAP's Lim Kit Siang. He said that he employed 30 chefs who each cooked nasi beriani dishes for 2,000 guests priced at RM10 per serving and with each serving able to feed 3 persons. This would total up to RM600,000 for a wedding feast that could be served to up to 180,000 guests.
(Okay when you're done laughing, there's more.)
When asked if he had sponsors Ali Rustam said yes but they advertised in the souvenir booklet and also donated their products for the event. Like instant noodles and soft drinks.
Okay Ali Rustam, that's all very nice and entertaining to hear but the big question still is this...
How could you, on a CM's salary be able to afford dishing out RM600,000 for a wedding dinner for your son? Did you save from your teenage years for this occasion?
