Are you familiar with this phrase? Itulah pentingnya English education (That’s why English education is important). It’s a famous line from Usop Wilcha in the late Mamat Khalid’s movie, Hantu Kak Limah. Even though the dialogue was jokingly uttered, we could see its significance now.

We believe it’s important to learn as many languages as we can. We do agree with the importance of empowering Bahasa Melayu. However, since English is the general lingua franca worldwide, it’s advisable to have at least basic skills in this language.

Does this popular seasoning brand contain pork?

There’s a video that went viral in TikTok previously. It was all over the internet after it was uploaded by the user.

In the video, the person warned not to buy some spices from a famous brand found in many local Malaysian supermarkets.

They said, “Some of the seasonings contain pork.”

We started to be wary because we use these spices at home. To Muslims, pork is one of the haram ingredients that we can never eat. If a food or ingredient contains pork or anything similar, we can’t purchase them.

However, we can’t simply believe everything we see these days. Therefore, when we look closely, it’s not ‘this spice contains pork‘ but ‘use on (…) pork‘!

Oh, no. This person got everything wrong.

To clarify, these seasonings don’t have pork in them. Instead, it can be used to marinate your proteins like chicken, beef or fish and pork too!

After inspecting the list of ingredients, there is no sign of pork. Thus, we can say it’s safe and Muslim-friendly!

Netizens agreed on the importance of English education

Many Malaysians worry about deteriorating reading comprehension and English proficiency in the community.

The English language is vital to avoid misunderstandings like these. There’s a big difference between ‘use on’ and ‘contains’.

Although the uploader wants to spread awareness, further research is advisable before sharing it with the public.

Some people should practice this: don’t spread if it’s untrue. It’s for the better.
