IN THE spirit of going back to the basics during the holy month of Ramadan, more than 30 Etiqa employees cooked and prepared Bubur Lambuk at the office to provide their 1,600 colleagues with a simple and satisfying meal for breaking fast.

“The Jom Masak Bubur Lambuk programme is Etiqa’s way of showing support and appreciation to its employees for working just as hard during the fasting month.

“More importantly, the programme reflects our brand platform of humanising insurance and takaful by providing employees with a convenient meal for breaking fast.

“We have made it an annual event since 2007,“ Etiqa CEO and director Datuk Aminuddin Md Desa said.

Although a chef was called in to help with the preparations and cooking, the 30 volunteers were the real stars of the event as they toiled to make the event a success.

The programme was held at an open area at Etiqa Headquarters in Dataran Maybank, Bangsar.
