A man in Malaysia reportedly found an entire gold chain inside his friend noodles that he bought from a Ramadan bazaar.
Netizens were amused and asked him where he bought his noodles from, because they wanted to “try try luck” and see if they could find a gold chain in their food too.
The man posted his intriguing find on Facebook on 1 April, captioning jokingly that the prices of the fried noodles at the Ramadan bazaar was too expensive.
He joked that the high prices were probably due to the gold chain that was added into the packet of fried noodles.
The netizen then shared a photo of the fried noodles that he bought, holding the noodles up with a pair of chopsticks.
At first glance, one would think that it was just some normal noodles being held up, but upon closer inspection, you can see that there was a gold chain camouflaged among the noodles.
The man’s Facebook post has since gone viral on social media, garnering more than 460 shares on Facebook, with many netizens weighing in.
One netizen expressed his disbelief at the man’s stroke of good fortune, while another netizen said that in the blink of an eye, the man had become rich.
Another netizen commented and asked where the netizen bought his noodles, because he wanted to patronise the said stall too and try his luck as well.
Another commenter described his fried noodles as “mee gold” instead of mee goreng, while another netizen commented and pointed out the man’s t-shirt, which reads “based on a true story”.
With that being said, finding something foreign inside your noodles, regardless of whether it is a gold chain or not, is not unhygienic.
Thankfully the man didn’t swallow the gold chain while eating his fried noodles, although it remained to be seen if the gold chain was clean enough to be served together with the noodles.
But then again, what’s a little stomachache when you can get a free gold chain?
