While Singaporeans and Malaysians may associate the pork rib hairclips with a tasty and comforting bak kut teh meal, others lamented on Reddit that the boiled ribs look unappetising and need some browning and/or seasoning with sauce.

Another comment said that the accessory gave off "Flintstones vibes".

If you're not into pork ribs, the same merchant also sells other designs such as assorted skewers (S$2.50 to S$3), edamame (S$2.50), and kelp (S$2.50).

If, like the Redditors, you prefer a more seasoned look for your pork rib, a Lazada merchant sells them in brown sauce and sweet and sour sauce designs at S$4 each.
