KUCHING: Mydin Mohamed Holdings Bhd celebrated Malaysia Day together with Cats FM at Mydin Samariang and Mydin CityOne, its first two outlets in Sarawak, last weekend.
Cultivating unity and harmony in a multiracial society was the objective of the celebration, which also coincided with Mydin’s 60th anniversary.
Various activities were held throughout the weekend, including a cooking contest at Mydin Samariang. Participants were required to prepare two Sarawakian dishes, which were pansuh chicken and fish or prawn umai.
“It cannot be denied that food has the power to unite people from different races, religions, languages and cultures, especially in Sarawak,” Mydin said in a press release.
There were also colouring contests for children at Mydin Samariang and Mydin CityOne, while the Malaysian Handicraft Development Corporation held a craft promotion at Mydin Samariang.
Adding to the festivities was a mini showcase featuring local artistes such as The Family Man, Ila Damia, Asyraf Hardy, Aideed and Fiyah and Soundholics, who kept the crowd entertained.
There was also a performance by French musician Julien Cottet on the sape.
Mydin has 322 branches in 10 business formats nationwide. Its third Sarawak branch, Mydin Vista Tunku, is expected to open by year-end.
