Following the reduced restrictions given by the government from the National Rehabilitation Plan (PPN), Malaysians are seen to use that freedom to the fullest.

In fact, some hotspots in the Klang Valley at this time are often flooded by oceans of people, and it’s becoming increasingly difficult to find parking.

Youngsters like to follow trends on TikTok

Undoubtedly, today’s young people are seen to prefer to follow all kinds of trends that are released as content on social sites like TikTok.

They have a tendency to follow trends on the site regardless of whether it’s harmful or otherwise.

In short, they tend to follow these so-called ‘trendsetters’.

Youths set up tents in Genting

Recently, one of the ‘trends’ that started to go viral on TikTok was the activity of gathering and setting up tents while enjoying instant coffee near the parking area in Genting Highlands.

Some even ‘park’ their tents near the Petron petrol station and cook noodles!

We get it that most want to go to Genting Highlands to feel the cool breeze but it’s best to not endanger those around us.

Honestly, this is the first time we’ve seen something like this happen as people don’t usually set up a tent in a public place like this.

Netizens weren’t too thrilled

This also got the attention of a few netizens who were dissatisfied with the behavior of some folks which was described as ‘damaging’.

For example, the freedom you have now may be revoked if you are too negligent and do not follow Covid-19 SOPs.

PSA: If possible, try to avoid following all the trends in TikTok because not everything can be done in a public place like this.

Be sure to always be vigilant and not endanger yourself or others when doing something.

Although there’s no specific rule that says that you can’t set up your tent in public places, based on the comments above, it’s not the norm either.
