Last update: 20/10/2019

PUTRAJAYA, Oct 20  -- Artistic doodling in conjunction with the Rural Entrepreneur Carnival (REC) (KUD @ KPLB 2019) for 12 hours non-stop has successfully made it into the Malaysia Book of Records (MBOR).

The doodle sketch with a specific motif using pens was made over 10 blocks, five feet high and four feet wide, by eight doodle painters from a community known as Doodict.

Malaysia Design Development Centre (DDEC) chief executive officer Abdul Rahman Mohd Saad said the idea was brought up by Rural Development Minister Datuk Seri Rina Mohd Harun among the things to be done at the biennial carnival.

“That's why we decided to work with Doodict, a community known for doodle art which appeals to young people today.

“In conjunction with the five-day REC, the doodle motif produced must be related to the activities and elements of entrepreneurship which will take place during the carnival,” he said after the MBOR certificate handover ceremony here today.

Witnessed by the Rural Development Ministry (KPLB)’s Secretary-General Datuk Dr Ahmad Jailani Muhamed Yunus, the certificate was handed over by MBOR Operations, Research and Marketing manager, Edwin Yeoh Tiong Chin to Abdul Rahman. 

Meanwhile, Doodict founder Muhamad Hizami Musa said the community was proud of the trust placed in them and for giving them the opportunity to showcase their talents.

He said the community,founded in 2013, has 70 painters of which eight people involved in the MBOR project were selected based on their own painting techniques in line with the theme prescribed.
