I BELIEVE members of the public are used to the fact that many eateries in Brunei use microwave to defrost food and also to preheat food before serving to their customers.
However, I am very sure that not many of us are aware that most of these food vendors are not using microwavable utensils to either heat or defrost their food.
On many occasions I have seen waiters and waitresses preheat food in utensils made of plastic or ceramic that are not microwavable.
I have rejected these preheated food served to me several times but who knows how many times such food has been served and went straight to my stomach!
We cannot ignore the fact that there are already many reports out there saying that it is very harmful to consume food that are not properly treated using microwave.
Microwavable utensils must be used at all times when treating food in a microwave otherwise it would cause us to develop life threatening illnesses such as cancer.
Surely, it is very sad to know that our wellbeing and those of our loved ones are being risked daily in this way.
We really hope that the relevant authorities would do their best to safeguard everyone’s wellbeing by making sure that all food vendors must adhere to instructions for using microwaves especially the use of microwavable utensils.
I would also like to urge all the food bloggers out there to do your part to help besides telling us how savoury the food is. Please also find out and inform us how the food is treated before being served. This kind gesture of yours sure could help many friends and families.
