Malaysia Plaza Apologized For Throwing Away 600kg Record Breaking Bowl Of Soup


A shopping centre in Malaysia has apologised for throwing
away 600kg of Sarawak laksa, a spicy noodle soup, after
breaking the country's record for popular street food.
Social media users slammed the decision to get rid of the
food, equivalent to 1,500 regular sized bowls.
The Plaza Merdeka in Kuching cited safety reasons for the
move.
But it said the wastage was an "unfortunate oversight and
misjudgement".
It took 15 cooks and 18 hours to prepare the dish.
Cheah Kheng Mun, the shopping centre's general manager,
told reporters they could not "simply give away" the laksa
because they had been advised to maintain the soup gravy
at a certain temperature.
He also revealed that the giant bowl of laksa had started to
give off an odour.

Malaysia's giant bowl of laksa
100kg laksa paste
225kg rice noodles
90kg prawns
1,008 eggs
90kg bean sprouts
80kg chicken

After being flooded with angry comments on its Facebook
page, the shopping mall issued an apology.
"We are very grateful to the public for pointing out the issue
of food wastage. We would not try to justify ourselves in
this respect. We apologize for the oversight and
misjudgement," it said.
The angry comments included Justin Lim, who wrote: "To
the organiser who throws away a few hundred kilos of meat,
prawns, veg and over a thousand eggs, please google
"famine" first and then after that live in shame for the rest if
your life."
Shar Izat Kasumajaya said: "All that the organisers thought
of was acquiring the record. There are hundreds of
thousands of people living under the poverty line. To throw
away the equivalent of 1,500 bowls of food is just wrong.
It's shameful. It's foul."
But some other users, such as Patricia Kim, hoped the
apology would put an "end to the saga".
Celebrity chef Datuk Redzuawan Ismail, better known as
Chef Wan, took part in the event.
Originally from the Sarawak state on the Borneo Island, the
eponymous dish is a spicy rice noodle soup.
Official figures show that 15,000 tonnes of food is
discarded in Malaysia every day, even though 3,000 tonnes
of it is still good for consumption.
