We are incredibly heartened to witness that MBD continues to serve as a platform for Malaysians to gather and embrace the value of a healthy, balanced breakfast. This unwavering community spirit showcased by Malaysians never fails to inspire us and drives us to further our commitment to sports advocacy and community development, helping to foster a health-conscious nation."
