As everyone are aware, it is strictly prohibited for one to eat and drink while taking public transport. The same restrictions apply to all forms of public transportation all around the globe.
Meanwhile in Malaysia, the situation is more often than not far from different. Despite the restriction, you may still come across passengers munching on their food while riding the train, just like this two local women.
Recently, the girls found themselves getting called out by RapidKL after they were caught eating Maggi cups on the MRT. Taking to their official socials, RapidKL took action by reprimanding the duo for their action. In the photo, the two ladies were seen holding a cup of instant noodles while scrolling on their phones.
“We never prepared hot water for you to eat Maggi on our train. Not only you were eating inside the train, you didn’t even put your face mask on. For your comfort, there are reasons why we don’t allow passengers to eat and drink on the trains,” RapidKL wrote in their post. At the time of writing (Wednesday, 20th July), the post has since garnered more than 900 shares online.
Many netizens also came forth to air their thoughts on the matter. Some of them criticised the two girls’ irresponsible trait. On the other hand, there were also some who argued that instead of publicly putting the female passengers on blast, RapidKL should also play their part in improving the system.

Even prior to this, there have been several viral incidents happening at the MRT over the last couple of weeks. Among those include the video showing two young girls vaping inside the train, and also another video of a foreign lady lying down on the MRT seats.
