KUCHING, July 4 (Bernama) -- 'Bubur Lambuk' which is well known in Sarawak especially during the Ramadan month, will be featured as a friendly neighborhood concept under the Bubur Lambuk programme organised by Kuching North City Hall (DBKU).

DBKU mayor Datuk Abang Abdul Wahap Abang Julai said the programme that will kick off on July 13, was intended to become a two-way communication platform between the DBKU and local residents from 21 villages in Petra Jaya.

"This year the porridge programme received overwhelming response when more participants and sponsors have come forward to participate in the program," he said at a press conference, here, today.

The programme also aims to strengthen ties between the residents who are involved in the friendly neighborhood area, which consists of a variety of religious backgrounds.
