GEORGE TOWN, June 23 (Bernama) -- The Young Muslim Sports Club (YMSC) in collaboration with Seeni Food & Beverage Sdn Bhd entered the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR) after achieving its target of distributing 10,200 packs of 'mee goreng sotong’ (fried squid noodles) for free within 24 hours.

MBOR personnel Edwin Hoh presented the certificate to YMSC president Munower Sadiq MKE Kader Sultan at a brief ceremony that was witnessed by Penang Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow at Padang Kota Lama here today.

Munower Sadiq said the success would not have been possible without the dedication of the YMSC committee members and three generations of the Seeni family chefs: Sheik Abidin AKM Mustaffa, 78 (grandfather), Seeni Mohamed Sheik Abidin, 46 (father) and Syed Muhammad Hafiz Seeni Mohamed, 24 (son), through the ‘Most Mee Goreng Sotong Giveaway’ programme.

"I congratulate and commend the entire team who worked tirelessly day and night alongside these three generations in continuously frying the noodles.

"With their efforts, we have successfully introduced Penang's traditional food to tourists from outside. People from Melaka, Kedah, Perak, (and) Perlis also came," he said in an interview with Bernama at Padang Kota Lama today.

Syed Muhammad Hafiz shared that they took 72 hours to get ready to set the record, including sacrificing their sleep.

"We started by bringing in raw materials and managed to push through the 72 hours of preparation to fry over 10,000 packs of noodles within 24 hours.

"One of the reasons we attempted to enter the MBOR was to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Seeni Food. I am very touched, happy and proud," he said.

In his speech, Chow said that this effort demonstrates the active participation of the people of the state in promoting Penang.

"This initiative aligns with the Penang2030 Vision of 'Empowering the People to Strengthen Civic Participation,' fostering a society that is active, creative and critical towards a MADANI community," he said.

The ‘Most Mee Goreng Sotong Giveaway’ initiative ran for 24 hours from 5 pm yesterday to 5 pm today at Padang Kota Lama and received an enthusiastic response from the public.
