MALAYSIA BOOK OF RECORDS RECOGNISES ‘THE BIGGEST MALAYSIA JIGSAW PUZZLE MAP’ ON DISPLAY AT INTERMARK MALL

Puzzle Planet®, Taylor’s International School Kuala Lumpur and Intermark Mall collaborated to build the patriotic display to commemorate Merdeka Day with the theme ‘Keluarga Malaysia Teguh Bersama’.

KUALA LUMPUR, 25 August 2022 – In conjunction with Malaysia’s 65th Independence Day, Puzzle Planet®, Taylor’s International School Kuala Lumpur and Intermark Mall celebrated its record-breaking achievement of creating ‘THE BIGGEST MALAYSIA JIGSAW PUZZLE MAP’.

Puzzle Planet® contributed 48,000 blank waterproof jigsaw puzzle canvas pieces sponsored by Pintoo International to create the 15ft by 7ft Malaysia Jigsaw Puzzle Map for 23 talented Taylor’s International School students from Years 8, 9 and 10 to conceptualise, sketch and colour the puzzle pieces with illustrations of what Malaysia means to them.

Inspired by this year’s Merdeka theme, ‘Keluarga Malaysia Teguh Bersama’, the map represents Malaysia’s 13 states with hand-drawn illustrations of what each state is known for, such as, Mt Kinabalu, Rafflesia and the Proboscis monkey that are found in Sabah, and the Oriental Pied Hornbill, iconic cat monument and longhouse found in Sarawak.

Peninsular Malaysia features illustrations of local delicacies such as Ipoh chicken rice, kopitiam coffee, Cameron Highlands strawberries; handicrafts such as the wau; and iconic buildings and sites such as Kuala Terengganu Drawbridge and Fraser's Hill Clock Tower.

“The collaboration between Puzzle Planet, Intermark Mall, Taylor's International School, intelligence partner Huawei Malaysia, and Pintoo International to make this record-breaking feat possible is a great example of the Keluarga Malaysia (Malaysian family) spirit. This patriotic art piece not only pays tribute to Malaysia’s beauty and multi-cultural diversity, it is also a great way to get into the Merdeka celebratory mood to mark 65 years of Malaysia’s independence,” said Prof. Dr. Jeffery Yap, Chief Operating Officer of Puzzle Planet®.

The Malaysia Book of Records title presentation for the ‘BIGGEST MALAYSIA JIGSAW PUZZLE MAP’ was presented by Mr Aaron Bong, Deputy General Manager, Marketing and Events, Malaysia Book of Records, at the unveiling ceremony at Intermark Mall on 25 August. Present to receive the certificate was Prof. Dr. Jeffery Yap, Chief Operating Officer of Puzzle Planet®, Ms. Kung Suan Ai, Director of Marketing, Intermark Mall and Mr. Peter Wells, principal of Taylor's International School Kuala Lumpur.

The public are invited to view the ‘BIGGEST MALAYSIA JIGSAW PUZZLE MAP’ at Intermark Mall’s Ground Atrium until 18 September 2022.
