Recognizing something not exactly fair dinkum was going on, the Aussies tried to sound a warning on their Facebook page:
"Many locations are ticketed by the People's Association to ensure there's enough food for all. But we've been told some spare coupons are set aside for those who just show up."
The reality on the ground was uglier than anticipated.
- "We don't even know where to get the tickets because it wasn't stated we need to get the tickets. And now, like you said, tickets are all taken."
- "Why wasn't this announced earlier that those ticketless residents from neighbouring estates were only entitled to leftovers from 8.30pm onwards? Disappointing."
- "The idea was good but shame it ended up as an ugly spat between the haves and the haves-not."
- "A fantastic initiative undermined by the ruthlessly mechanical PA machine rejecting all non invitees."
