This study was initially planned to involve multi-ethic population whereby data will be collected at community centers in the area. However, due to time constraint (3 months for data collection), we were not able to obtain the permission from the respective Municipal Council on time (up to months for approval). We then decided to approach the board in churches, temples and mosques in the area to join the study, but only the Muslim or majority Malay community allowed us to collect data and were able to accommodate our needs (space to collect data, tables, and chairs) while others were either not interested or was not able to accommodate due to already scheduled events.

Thus, data were collected from a sample of 100 Bangi residents aged 60 and over at the time of the study. The study was conducted by interview administered questionnaire in Masjid Al-Umm and Masjid Al-Hasanah in Bandar Baru Bangi by six students from Nutrition background in July 2019 to October 2019. Subjects were invited to take part in the research via text blasts and mosque announcements. A few stations were set up for the collection of sociodemographic, anthropometric and KAP data. After excluding incomplete data, there were 94 eligible subjects to participate in the survey. Willingness to participate in the survey was taken to imply consent. Survey was conducted in Malay and English.
