What is the meaning of this Mcdonald Singapore?!

I just found out that the Hongkong mcdonald is having Zodiac Pig in the same series that is offering in Singapore. Note that they are using Chinese Zodiac Doraemon lucky charm as title. Now I really feel we in Singapore are short changed!

If that was not enough, HongKong mcdonalds offer a Collector kit package that by paying a certain sum, collectors can get the whole set with lot of freebies including Angbao(Chinese Red Packets), Doreamon trading cards and Cupid Doraemon as a bonus. Click for bigger picture below.

Now I question why Singapore Mcdonald did not do this? Isn't that better? One thing for sure, many including me are not happy with the services and decision of what Singapore mcdonald did by removing the Zodiac Pig!

How would you feel when you learned about this double standards?

Updated: Alas Singapore mcdonald did the right thing to put the Zodiac Pig but it will be coming in April...By then Chinese New Year is over...Nevertheless I hope mcdonald will not do such thing again by assuming some sensitive situation. End of the day, what they did only make some unfair reaction on some parties.

because of this post, watch the prices of the Zodiac Pig Doraemon in HK soar on ebay, with the bulk of buyers being from SG. :)

well at least you have those. We don't have any of it in Malaysia.
The reason why Singapore Mac don’t have the pig is because they though it would be insensitive to the Malays. However they did not do away with the dog! LOL

However the Malay community said it was actually ok.

Well you can see it as a corporate mistake on the part of Singapore Macs!

Maybe, they should throw in Doraemon Zodiac Hongbao in compensation for shortchanging us! Kekekekek!

@Shaun
It is highly possible. :)

@kluxorious
Well it is rather frustrating to give some and hold some you know.

@Little Plastic Man
Yes and now they are trying to do some damage control.

@moemoekyun
Which 3 your sister got? Did she get the uglydoll for you?

@TheFuzzy
Thanks for the update! Rejoice!

@Dennis
That's an idea!

@chrismandesign
Do share what your happy meal toy over that end. Maybe it's different from us. :)

Hmmm, that makes the Cupid Doraemon toy exclusive to Singapore! We can trade it for the Pig Doraemon toys with Hong Kong collectors :)
Juliana said…
Wow, even the HK McDs website is so cute and cool! Have you seen the Singapore McDs website? It's at the other extreme :(
LEon said…
@Juliana
THe cupid is exclusive to the collector kit in HK yes and I agree HK mcdonald did a better presentation.
desmond said…
Singapore is a multi national country. So, sometimes no choice :)
Juliana said…
Oops, I missed seeing the Cupid Doraemon toy in the HK Collector's Kit, my bad :P

Anyway I just bought the Cupid Doraemon today as a gift for someone :)
LEon said…
@desmond
in a way yes but they shouldn't assume others will feel offended.

@Juliana
It will make a sweet valentine gift. :)

Macdonalds should give away the Pig doraemon for free to those who have collected the rest of the 11 doraemons!
LEon said…
@jacqueline
That's a good suggestion! Maybe we should push this to mcdonald! XD
