Famous Bubble Tea Chain Xing Fu Tang Has Gotten Halal Certification But People Are Still Not Satisfied

Let's face it, 2019 has been the year of the boba. There have been dozens of bubble milk tea stores that have opened up all across the Klang Valley, and people have been going nuts over the drink, with many trying to get a taste of what each shop has to offer.
However, it didn't take long for controversy to arise. People noticed that popular bubble tea stores like The Alley and Xing Fu Tang did not have a halal certification. This drew a lot of criticism from both ends, with some saying that these stores should be more responsible, while others wondering what could be in the bubble tea that makes it non-halal in the first place.
I have one thing to say about the issue where Xing Fu Tang, The Alley that has no halal cert; Kedai makan Pak Ali got no Halal cert as well why you no make big fuss?
Why are people triggered when a food isn’t certified halal. You wanna drink suka hati lah. It’s just that some people really do care about what they are eating. Just accept that fact and go drink your xing fu tang away.
Well, after months of going back and forth, Xing Fu Tang finally announced on their Facebook page that they have been halal certified! They explained that they were certified by Majelis Ulama Indonesia (MUI) and will be converting their certificate to a Malaysian one (JAKIM).
So, this means that Xing Fu Tang is safe to drink right? Wrong! While many people have applauded the move, some have critised the store for not getting Xing Fu Tang certified in Malaysia itself.
XING FU TANG BELUM CERTIFIED HALAL
Untuk kebaikan semua. Mohon maaf terpaksa share. Agak misleading post ni.
