King and Queen help Labuan villagers to prepare traditional dish

LABUAN: The Yang di-Pertuan Agong Al-Sultan Abdullah Ri'ayatuddin Al-Mustafa Billah Shah and the Raja Permaisuri Agong Tunku Azizah Aminah Maimunah Iskandariah have joined villagers at Kampung Sungai Labu to prepare a traditional dish for the breaking of the fast at Sungai Labu Mosque here.

Their Majesties arrived at Sungai Labu Mosque at 4.05pm and were received by the mosque committee members and villagers.

The royal couple spent about half an hour mingling with villagers and children at the village and presented personal donations to children.

Al-Sultan Abdullah and Tunku Azizah also took the opportunity to stir (or 'sangai' in the Kadayan dialect) the rice in a hot pan.

The villagers also gave the recipe to the Queen for the Kedayan traditional dish "Bubur Banging", which is made from village rice (beras kampung), pandan leaves, coconut milk and sweet corn.

Their Majesties also took time to tour Labuan.

The royal couple is scheduled to join government department heads in the breaking of the fast event at 6pm at the Dorsett Grand Labuan. – Bernama
