National Unity and Integration Department adds another feather in its cap

25th June, 2019

LABUAN: Labuan National Unity and Integration Department has added another feather in its cap when it once again set a new record in the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) at the Labuan’s largest open hall of Bukit Kuda Arena Hall on Sunday night.

A total of 1,008 people comprising villagers, neighbourhood watch (rukun tetangga) members, government servants, school teachers, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), private sector staff, and members of the public gathered at the hall as early as 2pm Sunday to prepare the Kedayan Brunei local dish of ‘Ambuyat’ for its official record setting at 9pm of ‘Menumpah Ambuyat [Pouring the Ambuyat]’.

Ambuyat, the local dish of Kedayan and Brunei in Labuan, Sipitang, Beaufort, Kuala Penyu in Sabah, Lawas, Miri and Limbang in Sarawak could be eaten with a bamboo fork referred as chandas by rolling the starch around the prongs, then dipping into the sauce, of which there are many varieties.

Labuan Member of Parliament Datuk Rozman Isli and National Unity and Integration Department Director-General Datuk Baharin Idris (representing Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Senator P Waytha Moorthy) joined the group to set the record.

Its director Mimie Duasa Selvakumar said the Most Number of Participants In An Ambuyat Making Event by the 1,008 people was a success to the department after its last record set in May this year with 1,000 local dancers performed 60 traditional dances non-stop for two hours and 36 minutes in the Unity Dance (Tarian Perpaduan) event.

The record superseded the record set in Miri in 2017 with 41 types of local dances.

“We have organised a number of events with only one important objective to unite the multiracial people on this island,” she said Sunday night.

Mimie said the event attracted more than a thousand people from all walks of life which reflected that Labuan was among the state with zero racial tension and conflict. – Bernama
