KUCHING: A group representing Kuching Polytechnic Sarawak (PKS) has been successful in getting the institution’s name recorded in the Malaysia Book of Records (MBR) for the most number of participants performing the Alu-Alu dance.
A total of 1,289 PKS students and staff performed the dance at the PKS football field yesterday.
The MBR certificate was presented by MBR research and analysis personnel Mohd Hafizi Hamdan to PKS director Kamaludin Daud after the performance.
Kamaludin said they chose to perform the Alu-Alu dance because it has the ability to bring together people of different races as participants.
“It took three weeks for us to prepare for this attempt. The Sarawak Department of Culture and Arts guided us in the process,” he added. He informed that the attempt was part of this year’s POLIKU Borneo Rainforest Carnival.
