A Lesson in Public Order and Safety

The viral video has sparked a heated debate on social media, with many users expressing their disbelief and amusement at the unusual sight of people cooking instant noodles at a petrol station.

While some find the incident humorous, others argue that there are plenty of other suitable places for camping or picnicking where cooking activities can be carried out safely and without causing a public disturbance.
