PETALING JAYA: A woman had a shock at a Road Transport Department (JPJ) office when she was forced to wear a sarong or be refused service.

In a Facebook post, Suzanna G L Tan said she was at the JPJ office to transfer the ownership of her car after selling it.

She also posted a photograph of herself outside the office, wearing a blouse with a skirt that ended just above the knee. Another photograph showed her wearing a sarong sitting at the JPJ counter.

"I had to go to JPJ personally to sign the transfer form for the car I sold. That in itself is already a pain," Tan wrote.

"I go dressed like this. Indecent meh?" she asked in reference to her dressing in the photograph.

Tan said while she was at the counter to get a queue number when she was handed a sarong to wear "or they would not entertain me".

"So, I looked like this, a bag! Only to sit in front of a counter window where only (the) top part of my body (was) visible to the officer, I do not know if I should laugh or cry," she said.

Tan did not say which JPJ office, nor the time or date she was there.

The Facebook post has since gone viral.
