It's not unusual for Malaysians to get frustrated when they see Singaporeans filling up their vehicles with RON95 petrol. However, a recent altercation between a Malaysian man and a couple purportedly from Singapore brought a unique twist to this common scenario.
A video surfaced on Twitter featuring a Malaysian man confronting a couple refueling a Singaporean car at a Petron station. "Are you from Singapore?" he asked. "What's number plate is that? How can you pump RON95? Do you know you're stealing Malaysia's resources?"
The woman countered, asserting, "I'm Malaysian." Clearly frustrated, the man persisted, "Then why the Singaporean plate? Can you legally use the yellow petrol pump?"
The woman seemed irritated for being called out apparently. And this behavior only added to the dissatisfaction among netizens. Many praised the man for his actions, reflecting the recurring tensions between Malaysians and Singaporeans regarding the use of RON95 fuel.
This incident underscores an ongoing issue that requires attention from relevant authorities. Officials must acknowledge these occurrences and take necessary measures to address the concerns raised by citizens.
