Ngga deh. Aromanya terlalu tajam.— Aku (@Nokning) June 3, 2019
@big_dim added that the smell would distract other viewers, making them feel uncomfortable.
Kayaknya kurang bijak kalo @CGV_ID krn wangi mie cup tsb akan mengganggu kenyamanan penonton— Dimas Haviadi (@big_dim) June 3, 2019
Meanwhile, @thatxmine tweeted: “This is my favorite. And for your information, because this Mie Sedap is served dry, the smell would not be as strong as [its soup-based products]. It won’t make your friends sitting next to you [feel hungry]." (jes/kes)
KESUKAAN BANGET INI. dan FYI mie sedap ini karena tanpa kuah, aromanya engga se-nyengat produk tetangga. Jadi engga terlalu bikin temen duduk ikut krucuk krucuk perutnya 🤗— JANNA (@thatxmine) June 3, 2019
