"Let's support the new Massimo bread by Robert Kuok and boycott Gardenia bread owned by UMNO crony, Syed Mokhtar's Tradewind group. Massimo bread has finally arrived in Penang. During promotion the wheat gem bread is sold at only RM2.50 as oppose to RM3.20, go check it out.
No, I don't think we should boycott any product or service based solely on the above crony reason. I would buy Massimo bread if it is conveniently available, fresh, tasty and comparatively cheaper than Gardenia. If for the same type of bread, the price difference is as stated, then there is no need to call for a boycott as the market will adjust itself. Sometimes, when in need, we might not even have a choice, like what we used to watch on television in places of famine. Similarly, I would avoid buying breads from The Loaf, not because I dislike Tun, but because from what I hear, they are much more expensive. Anyway, it would be silly to think Tun needs returns from the venture. This reminds me of Tun Daim's cocky statement about his gains from the stock market as for weekend spending or something to that effect.
From Sassy MP: 'Stop attacking Gardenia from racist angle' shows Gardenia felt the effects of the boycott...
