“Neighbours Terrorised My Family to Stop My Mom Cooking ‘Smelly’ Malay Food'”

Curry too smelly for some neighbours, to the point that they cause a ruckus?

This netizen says her mother is now afraid of cooking Malay food at home, after her neighbours reported her cooking to the Police, NEA, Town Council and Resident’s Committee.

Lisa Hussein says none of the organisations found a problem with the cooking.

Lisa also uploaded pictures on Facebook, depicting how her neighbours have tried to tekan (press) her family into stopping that cooking and the “stench” of curry!

She says she has made a police report regarding the “cooking smell” war – which has reportedly taken place for the past half a year!

This is Lisa Hussein’s Facebook post in full:

“My parents have been terrorized by their new neighbour for half a year. They told my mum to stop cooking malay food they call them all “curry” coz they find it smelly.

They reported my mum’s cooking to Police, NEA, Town Council and RC and all these agencies have visited my mum’s house to investigate but could not do anything to mum.

To date my mum has fear of cooking at home n now has totally stopped cooking. They didn’t want any confrontation n didn’t want to make any complain to avoid conflict. U

know how old folks are…so patient n tolerant.

But last night i went ahead to make a police report.

However, i understand from police they can only advise her neighbour to stop their acts.

I have to go to SCDF, NEA and Town Council to complain if i want action.

U can read the police report for a brief strory n descriptions on the pics below, advice pls if there is anything else i can do.”

    Tell your mum to buy an extractor hood for her cooker. An extractor hood will definitely help clear up a lot of the smell when your mum is cooking. This will enable your mum to continue cooking her smelly food without bothering her neighbour.
