This follows a police report made over the video, Taiping OCPD Asst Comm Osman Mamat said when contacted on Tuesday (May 10).

In the 5min and 53sec video uploaded on Facebook, the couple made several claims about the service and conditions at the lodge and said they had to wait for a long time for their dinner to be served.
