Some Muslims customers are unhappy with Big Box, a mall in Jurong East, for organising a “Durian Fest EAT ALL YOU CAN!” event during the fasting month.
Saying that the durian fest they held last year was a huge success, Big Box invited its customers to another durian feast via a Facebook post on June 15. The durian fest is held this weekend (18 and 19 June) and customers can pay $38 to attend a session from 3 – 5pm, or another from 6 – 8pm. Alternatively, they could pay $68 to attend both sessions in a day.
Some Muslim customers are unhappy because the mall is having the durian fest during the fasting month of Ramadan. Big Box, tried to explain that was why they were having two sessions. But some Facebook users said that since the fast typically ends past 7pm, they will have very little time to eat the durians, and so it is not fair.
1Big Box apologised to such customers and said that it will be mindful of this when it organizes its next durian fest.
