Etiquette when travelling with KL Rapid buses, LRT, MRT

Update 15 September 2017: I have seen announcements that eating is not allowed on MRT trains, I think also at LRT trains.

Can you eat when traveling with KL Rapid buses, LRT and MRT trains? Apparently yes. Why. Because eating is not excluded as listed in the
Etiquette when traveling with KL Rapid

Here are the no's
1. Priority seats are to be offered to the elderly, disabled, expectant mothers and commuters with infants
2. When passengers are boarding, keep doors clear to allow passengers to alight first and give room to those boarding
3. Put Bags Down
No one wants a bag shoved onto their face. Please be considerate and remove your backpack and place it on the floor to make more room for other passengers.
4. Make More Room
Make room for others to board the train or bus. Move towards the centre or back especially during peak hours.
5. Mobile Phones
Mobile phones have become a necessity, but not everyone is keen on your conversation. Keep your voice down and avoid sharing your discussions.
6. Personal Hygiene
Take care of your personal hygiene. If you see others pinching their noses, it’s obvious you don’t smell so good. Always keep in mind that everyone is traveling in a confined area for a good distance.
7. No Smoking
Smoking is not allowed at all stations, platforms and onboard trains and buses. Let’s keep our surroundings clean.
8. Pole Hogger
Don’t hog the pole and handrail. The pole is not for dancing but to ensure everyone is safe and secured when travelling.

How about eating? Nowhere is it mentioned as prohibited. So the next time I am tempted to bring along some sandwiches to munch, I should just go ahead.
That is nice
