Malaysians are known for their love for instant noodles. Not only do locals find these noodles satisfying, it is also easy to prepare. All you have to do is boil the noodles in hot water and add the seasoning. It’s as simple as ABC!
Speaking of which, a group of youngsters received tons of negative attention from the public recently after a video showing one of the boys “cooking” instant noodles in a hotel sink in Kuala Lumpur went viral on social media over the weekend.

In the video (reuploaded by Twitter page TikTok Berguna), we can see that two chunks of uncooked ramen, complete with seasoning, were apparently cooked with hot water from the tap. As if that wasn’t gross enough, the boy in the video even used a pair of toothbrushes as a chopstick! Apparently, the hotel didn’t provide bowls and spoons, Oh Media reported. Isn’t it ironic that they could afford to stay in a hotel but couldn’t buy some cup noodles?
Following this, TikTok user Daniel later clarified that they had cleaned the washing basin beforehand, prior to cooking the two packs of instant noodles with hot water. Not only that, he even shared that the Maggi tasted bland due to the excess amount of water used to cook the noodles.
Despite his clarification, the boys still weren’t spared from the wrath of netizens. Many were utterly disgusted by what they had witnessed. In this case, many people called the group of boys out for their dumb act. One user sarcastically remarked, “Isn’t it great? Showing the world how stupid you are. Let’s get noticed worldwide, you guys.”
“Please check whether your boyfriends are here in this vid. You can ask for a breakup immediately. There’s no use dating someone who is shallow-minded and attention seeking,” another commentator chimed in.
At the time of writing (Tuesday, 4th January), the Twitter video has amassed over 1 million views online. Meanwhile, the original TikTok post has since been taken down by the user after facing massive backlash from netizens.
