GEORGE TOWN: Malaysians have not really grasped the rationale behind the movement control order (MCO) as there are still a lot of people gathering to take away their food or chilling out at food courts on Wednesday (March 18).

At one eatery in Penang, many customers were seen waiting for their food order, while few others were busy chatting about the MCO.

"My business is not open today. I'm just here to look at the situation," said one person who declined to be named.

Some customers have also found ways to sort of dine-in by having their drinks packed in plastic bags on the table. Others put their packed drinks inside cups.

Dozens of customers were spotted queueing for their food as the premises no longer served the tables.
