PTP continues with its bubur lambuk tradition


Some 3,000 packs of sumptuous bubur lambuk made their way to hundreds of Pelabuhan Tanjung Pelepas Sdn Bhd (PTP) community members and six mosques in the Gelang Patah, Johor, area.

This is the eighth year in a row that PTP is organising the distribution of the much sought-after rice porridge considered by many a must during the fasting month.

Started in 2010, the programme underlines PTP’s commitment to encourage volunteerism among its staff and to foster the spirit of togetherness and goodwill during Ramadhan.

The bubur lambuk programme is a collaboration between the PTP management team, Kelab Keluarga PTP (KKPTP) and Surau At Taqwa PTP, according to a statement from the company.

PTP CEO Marco Neelsen and members from the senior management team had joined the others to volunteer for the cooking session of the bubur lambuk.

PTP is said to be Malaysia’s most advanced container terminal. It is strategically located at the confluence of the main east-west shipping lanes, offering shipping lines minimal deviation time of 45 minutes. The port is situated in a sheltered bay and has no tide restrictions. — TMR
