GEORGE TOWN: With less than 10 days to go before Thaipusam, the public has been reminded not to waste food during the celebration on Jan 21.

“Take only what you need, and come back if you need more. Do not collect packets of food and later throw them away. If you can’t finish the food, take it home to eat later,” said Consumers Association of Penang (CAP) education officer N.V. Subbarow at the entrance of the Hilltop Temple yesterday.
