McDonalds takes the charm out of Doraemon series
"After I bought the Tiger and Rabbit lucky charms, I scanned the series and realised one animal was missing from the 12 signs - the Pig. Instead, McDonald's had a Cupid Doraemon.....
Puzzled, I asked the counter staff. The answer surprised me even more: As a halal restaurant, McDonald's could not display or sell Pig soft toys.....
I have given up collecting the lucky charms because my girl was born in the Year of the Pig and she has no 'luck' in getting her Doraemon charm."
Today's ST forum page... SIBEI JOKER...
lik this still cal 12 zodiac?? LOL!! 11 zodiac + 1 cupid! lucky, that time i still regret didnt collect.. LOL..
Ya , i also thought of collecting but see 1 for $2, dont wanna waste money..
Errr.... FYI... I am not selling these charms... nor do I have extra... cos' I didn't buy them in the 1st place...
Got a few PM requests.... hmmm....
haha, i did realise no pig. cos pin was born in piggy year tts y i only wanna buy that!
then i told bf, no pig deee! then he ask me isit?? yah , why??
i say, cos HALAL mahhhh!!!!!!!!!!!
As a Muslim, I am amused by Mc's measure to decide to take Piggy off from the series. I mean, it is not as if, Muslim patrons wanna have the Piggy for consumption. Even if i were to get the Piggy, i could present it to other non-Muslim friends.
Halal means providing and serving food containing meat that adheres to slaughtering them according to Islamic rites and rituals. And that Piggy is definitely NOT a meat so am still wondering too why the Piggy is out of the team.

Mac's reply... pretty LAME....
Thank you for your interest in McDonald's Doraemon Lucky Charms collection.
As part of our ongoing efforts to provide customers with exclusive
collectibles only available at McDonald's, we brought in a Doraemon
collection that consists of 12 designs. With Valentine's Day coinciding
with the 1st day of the Lunar New Year, we decided to include a Cupid
Doraemon in the series. We seek your understanding that the Doraemon Lucky Charms promotion was never intended as a zodiac collection.
We thank you for your feedback and wish you a prosperous new year.
