It is strange that when many people in many countries are starving, we Malaysians are throwing away much of our good food.
Look at the numerous buffet meals that we have everyday, be it in hotels, in wedding parties or in government functions. People greedily collected as much food available on their plates thinking that they could finish everything.
At the end of it, so much good food, may be more that they consumed, are laid to waste.
Even in most homes here, food are still wasted. Just have a peek at domestic waste bins in the morning, you are sure to find much food wastage.
Everybody knows that Islam forbids wastage, even water from the river, and those practising wastage is equated as being friends to Satan, but everybody does not care.
Even in our recent animal sacrifice ritual, did you know that so much protein-rich food are wasted? The digestive tract was normally just thrown away for nobody wanted to clean them nowadays. The chore is just too cumbersome to most of us, but when they go to numerous food stalls, they really like tripe soup (sup perut!) and do not mind paying for it..
