WHAT A WASTE – 1,500 bowls of Sarawak laksa thrown away?

After setting national record, mall throws away 1,500 bowls of ‘unhealthy’ Sarawak laksa

KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 29 – A Sarawak mall has planned to throw away the equivalent of 1,500 bowls of Sarawak laksa that was cooked for its successful bid yesterday to set a record for the Malaysia Book of Records.

Its organiser Debra Sim confirmed the contents of a huge bowl custom-made for the attempted “The Biggest Bowl of Laksa Sarawak” feat at Plaza Merdeka there yesterday would be binned for “being unhealthy”.

“It will all be thrown away because it is unhealthy for human consumption,” Sim was quoted telling local daily The Borneo Post.

According to the local daily, the bowl measuring 1.3 metres deep and 3.1 metres wide contains the Sarawak dish whipped up from various ingredients, including 100kg of Sarawak laksa paste, 225kg of rice noodles, 90kg of prawns, 1,008 eggs, 90kg of bean sprouts, and 80kg of chicken.

Preparation for the dish took 18 hours and involved 15 cooks, the report said.

Secondary school teacher Michael Law had reportedly called up the local daily to complain over the food wastage.

“I saw the function on the Facebook page and called to confirm whether the enormous amount of food was being wasted just to enter the book of records. When it was confirmed, I felt very sad.

“I feel that the minister, who was officiating at the function, should have known what he was doing. He missed the chance to educate the organisers and the public of the good values of not wasting food,” the 44-year-old was quoted saying.

Law was referring to Sarawak minister of local government Datuk Dr Sim Kui Hian, who had witnessed the event yesterday together with local celebrity chef Datuk Redzuawan Ismail or Chef Wan as he is popularly known.

Malaysia Book of Records deputy general manager Mohamad Alex Edward yesterday certified the successful record attempt.
