GEORGE TOWN: Three men wearing “Predator” and “Black Panther” superhero costumes stole the limelight in front of a hotel near Jalan Larut here.
Mohd Nor Hisham Awang Non, 48, Mohd Wan Hafizi Wan Zakaria, 40, and 64-year-old Azhar A. Rahman, who are members of the Penang Adiwira Group, were waving at passers-by in front of Royal Penang Hotel as they distributed free breakfast packs.
Mohd Ali Mohd Sharif, 55, rode past the area with his son Mohd Rais on a motorcycle and thought a street festival was happening.
“After being told to stop, I realised the ‘superheroes’ were handing out breakfast for free. Thank you for taking the trouble to help,” he said.
Private-sector employee, Muzlifa Alias, 31, was on her way to work at Jalan Anson, and praised the initiative.
“Gestures like this should continue because many have been impacted by the pandemic,” she said.
The act of kindness is a collaboration between Penang Adiwira Group and the management of Royal Penang Hotel.
The hotel, led by general manager Amran Taib, had prepared 400 packets of nasi lemak, 150 noodle packs and 200 packets of tea and coffee to be given to the public.
On behalf of the hotel industry, Amran called on the state government to expedite vaccinations for the 4,000 hotel workers registered under the Penang chapter of the Malaysian Association of Hotels. — Bernama
