I visited PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur last week and was pleased to discover that the Lobby at PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur was transformed into a glittering wonderland with children and adults anticipating the family-themed Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony.
The Festive season at PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur was welcomed by hotel guests, corporate clients, The Alice Smith School carollers and children from the Stepping Stones Living Centre at the hotel’s Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. This event also signified the initiation of their annual fundraising campaign in aid of Stepping Stones Living Centre.
The ceremony began with The Alice Smith School carollers taking centre stage with ‘Frosty the Snowman’ which caught the attention of the little ones especially. Santa Claus and his Santarinas was seen going around greeting guests with candies and chocolates from Santa’s red sack. The Alice Smith School then got the Christmas mood going with ‘White Christmas’, ‘Rudolf’, ‘Jingle Bel s’ and ‘We Wish You a Merry Christmas’. The evening continued with Mr. Mark Losi, General Manager of PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur welcoming and thanking everyone for being present to witness the eventful occasion.
Launching the fundraising campaign, Mr. Losi made the first contribution towards Stepping Stone Living Centre. Stepping Stones Living Centre was founded in 1998 by Pastor Johnson. It was set up to take care of children, single mothers and senior citizens from needy and broken homes. The children would like to have new uniforms, shoes and clothes for the New Year. To fulfil their Christmas wishes, contributors can choose an envelope from our Christmas tree at the lobby. Each envelope has a child’s name, their wish and the value of each item. Just donate the amount stated into the envelope and drop it into the donation box right next to the Christmas tree. On Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, diners will be entitled to a lucky dip at RM20 per person. Proceeds will be channelled towards Stepping Stones Living Centre. Your generous contributions will ensure a memorable Christmas and New Year for these children.
Together with Christina, a nine-year-old girl from Stepping Stones Living Centre, they then lit up the Christmas tree, officiating the beginning of ‘A Family Christmas Affair’ festivities at PARKROYAL Kuala Lumpur.
The Christmas tree was brightly lit up with white LED lights by Mr. Losi and Christina using a silver wand.By the tree was a sliver sleigh and four glittering reindeers stocked with Christmas goodies. The ceremony continued with the children of Stepping Stones Living Centre singing classic Christmas carols such as ‘Joy to the World’ and ‘Away in a Manger’. They were then treated to a delectable buffet dinner before making their way home.
Corporate clients were also invited to dine to a Christmas Family Buffet Dinner at Chatz Brasserie, where generous choices of dishes were prepared for them. Among them were Roasted Turkey with Bread Stuffing and served with Giblet and Cranberry Sauce, Roasted Sirloin with Green Peppercorn Sauce, Grilled Seafood, Christmas Fruitcake, Cranberry Cheesecake, Chocolate Log Cake and Mince Pie, e43das well as exquisite selections from the newly-opened Kurata Japanese Fine Dining.
