A Brief Background
MALAYSIA BOOK OF RECORDS (MBR) is a Noble Project of NATIONAL
INTEREST that complements our Prime Minister, YAB Datuk
Seri Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad's call for the campaign,
is a project with the concept created in line with the government's
call to private sectors to play its role in Nation Building
towards Vision 2020 and, it is related to all walks of life.
the National Record-Keeper, MBR is an official body that
recognises recordholders, recordbreakers and recordcreators
in the country. Upon confirmation of their feats, achievements
MBR issues certificates to them.
This unorthodox Malaysian idea formed in 1990 when
Mr. Danny Ooi, the Founder of The Malaysia Book of
Records, stumbled upon a few questions regarding extraordinary
feats set by Malaysians.
recalled seeing a man cycling for days at the Merdeka
trying to set a world record and, another individual,
who travelled from state to state by walking. The letter
was hoping his attempt could be entered in the Guinness
Book of Records.
that none of these feats and attempts could be recorded
or kept, Mr Ooi felt it was time that proper recognition
should be given to such aspiration, effort and determination
exhibited by Malaysians.
MBR is set to motivate and inspire Malaysians to excel
various fields to the extent of surpassing the world's
standard. This also serves as a tool in highlighting Malaysia
to the world.
A Project that Instils the Spirit to
"Strive for Excellence"
To fulfil the goals and purposes to acknowledge, recognise and
record all achievements, creations and human feats, appropriate
stages were set, such as the compilation of all records for
the publication of The Malaysia Book of Records and the
production of The Malaysia Book of
Records TV Series.
The Malaysia Book of Records' First Edition was successfully
launched on December 9, 1998, unveiling the the best of Malaysians
and Malaysia in one book for the first time in Malaysian history.
Malaysia Book of Records' weekly TV series which outset on October
6, 1996 on RTM TV2 also serves as the most powerful medium in
providing the acknowledgement and recognition to all Malaysians
who in one way or another, had taken the extra miles to make
our country and her people proud.
Awards Night at National
and State Level
Starting December 1998, The Malaysia Book of Records
had successfully organised a national level and two states'
level, Sabah and Melaka respectively at MBR Awards
With true determination and ambitions, The Malaysia Book
of Records has been and will always be there for all Malaysians
who are ready to create, achieve and exhibit the spirit
of "Malaysia Boleh".
