"It is like attending a dinner organised by a temple, you have to pay for the dinner coupon, it can't be free right?" he said while attending an event in a Chinese temple on Wednesday.
Mohd Ali elaborated that some of the food and beverages were sponsored by private companies as wedding gifts as well to gain publicity.

The dinner took place at Dewan Tun Ali in Bukit Katil and the host of people it attracted included Selangor Sultan, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, several cabinet ministers and a number of other VIPs.
