Berjaya Waterfront Hotel, Johor Bahru recently took an initiative to distribute approximately 1,000 bubur lambuk to patrons of the adjacent Surau An-Nur, taxi drivers and local communities from all walks of life.
General Manager of Berjaya Waterfront Hotel, Johor Bahru, Ricky Ho said the corporate social responsibility programme was organized by the hotel to enliven the spirit of Ramadan, and share the joy of the holy month with the public.
“Bubur Lambuk Ibunda programme is an excerpt of our hotel’s Ramadan campaign this year with heritage of mothers’ cooking being our forefront theme, bringing back fond memories of the yesteryears in times where we grew up in our village with our mother’s delicious homemade dishes and the homely ambience encircling the scene – a memory which blanketed us in love and comfort. We hope this humble act of giving will promote love and bring togetherness amongst our local communities and our team of staff,” enthused Ho.
Ho was met after the distribution of Bubur Lambuk Ibunda event at Surau An-Nur, Stulang Laut Johor Bahru. Also presence to support and grace the event were Member of Parliament, Johor Bahru – YB Akmal Bin Nasir, Head of Surau An-Nur – Md Yunus Bin Omar; and hotel’s chef in-charge – Ahmad Johari Bin Ishak.
Ho further explained that two big pots of bubur lambuk were prepared by the hotel’s culinary team, supported by more than 50 hotel staff who helped with packing and distribution.
“The bubur lambuk was cooked as early as 10am and completed at 3pm before they were packed and distributed to the communities from 4pm onwards,” added Ho.
“This community initiative is our annual endeavor, and was first organized in 2015. It is part of our goodwill – we do this because we want to do it; and not because we have to. By doing so, we are able to incorporate our personal passion in helping others, and derive more satisfaction from it, and hopefully – make a bigger impact on our society,” concluded Ho.
