Spot anything special in the dish above?

Well, Caron Chan posted the images on her facebook account of what seems to be a rat carcass in a dish at Hotpot Culture, Marine square when she and her colleagues went for lunch at the restaurant.

Chan wrote in her facebook post,

“Spot the #RAT in the vegetable dish. Taken at Hotpot Culture at Marina Square for the $8.80 porridge buffet with my colleagues for lunch. It was “Business-as-usual” right after removing the dish tray. Enough said.”

According to her, a colleague had spotted what she thought was a rat’s tail in a vegetable dish.

In her facebook post, Chan said that they were relieved that they have not started eating before one of her colleagues spotted the tail of a rat in one of the dish.

After discovering the tail, Chan scooped out the rest of the “body” and confirmed it to be a whole rat carcass.

She then approached a staff member to inform them about their finding.

But instead of clearing all the dishes, only the dish containing the rat carcass was removed.

Chan said to local media,  “The staff member didn’t even react quickly, she handled something else first, then came to us and told another employee to remove it. She just said sorry and that they would serve a new batch,”

“What about the other customers who already ate it? That was so gross. They should have quickly stopped operations.”

Completely turned off by their find, Chan and her colleagues left the restaurant without paying, but informed the table next to them, which had already eaten the dish.

“The lady at the table next to us told us that she was still charged by the restaurant. She has already lodged a complaint with the National Environment Agency,” said Chan.

The National Environment Authority (NEA) has suspended Hotpot Culture Restaurant after the discovery of a rat carcass in one of its dishes was made known to them.

NEA in its statement to local media, “The restaurant has been instructed to suspend its operations immediately while NEA conducts its investigations,”

各党出战本届选举名单,如今已尘埃落定,工人党攻打四个选区,包括东海岸集选区、马林百列集选区、盛港集选区和榜鹅西单选区。与此同时,力保后港单选区和阿裕尼。 工人党在提名日前,宣布将会出战四个集选区与两个单选区,如今人选名单已尘埃落定。 工人党主席林瑞莲与秘书长毕丹星将带领费沙、贝理安、严燕松,留守阿裕尼集选区,对垒人民行动党则派出赖添发、蔡荣良和山水·卡玛尔、陈惠意和杨陞才。 上届选举,赖添发团队挑战阿裕尼集选区,惟不敌工人党败北,本届将带领新人陈惠意和杨陞才再次与工人党竞选。 另一个引人关注的集选区则为东海岸集选区,由王瑞杰率领孟理齐博士、陈舜娘、陈慧玲与陈杰豪对战工人党的阿都沙利、符策涫、陈励正、黄富荣、佘雪玲。王瑞杰此次离开淡滨尼集选区转战东海岸集选区。 其次是马林百列和盛港,马林百列将由工人党余振忠、陈俊元,阿扎拉迪,莫哈默法理,许金桂对垒人民行动党陈仁川等人。 工人党则在盛港派出何廷儒、蔡庆威、林志蔚和辣玉莎对战人民行动党黄志明、蓝彬明、安宁·阿敏和黎鸿业。 盛港也是本届大选新增集选区,为四人集选区,由原本的盛港西、榜鹅东和巴西立-榜鹅选区的一部分组成,有11万7千546选民。过去工人党都曾在凤山、盛港西和榜鹅东单选区上阵。 至于在单选区,工人党则派出陈立峰留守后港堡垒,对战人民行动党李宏壮。榜鹅西则是由新人陈贞贞对垒人民行动党孙雪玲。 榜鹅西原本在白沙—榜鹅集选区,但在今年3月的选区范围检讨委会报告中,被划分出来成独立单选区,选民人数约2万5440人。
