With the Movement Control Order (MCO) in place, Malaysians unable to order food due to the early closure of eateries have taken to cyberspace to vent their frustration. And they have used the hashtag SiBodohKauDengarSini which has become a trending topic on Twitter.

It all started with a discussion among three users on Jan 17. One of them complained that he had missed dinner two days in a row because his delivery orders fell through.

This prompted a reply for the user to simply order food earlier.

Angered at the response, another Twitter user lambasted the simplistic reply and started off with: "Si bodoh, kau dengar sini", or  in English, "Listen here, you idiot".

"Due to the shorter operating hours, the whole of Malaysia will be ordering around the same time. Do you know how many times our delivery apps hang because of this? We already don't have time to cook because we come back late from work but have to put up with this," they wrote.

"The government is asking the people to find a way around, but why can't they just extend the operating hours? Aren't these short hours also making life difficult for the ones who prepare our food?" they questioned.

It didn't take long for other Malaysians to jump on the bandwagon and this gave birth to the hashtag #SiBodohKauDengarSini. Many also recounted similar problems with the shortened opening hours.

During the MCO, eateries are to close by 8pm with many food delivery companies taking the the last order at 7.30pm.
