Christmas is not a time nor a season, but a state of mind. To cherish peace and goodwill, to be plenteous in mercy is the real spirit of Christmas, together on this magnificent night, Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur staff and guests will donate 96 golden stars to the children patient at the General Hospital Kuala Lumpur Cancer Pediatric Ward “A Star for A Child Campaign.”
The event was held at Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur’s majestic lobby where the guests were indulging in Chef Steven’s canapés such as Devon Scallop Carpaccio with Wasabi Mayo and Grape Fruit, Walnut Turkey and Brie with Rocket Pesto whilst sipping on a glass of warm mull to reminisce of the Christmas warmth. Mr Peter D. Gibbons, General Manager of Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur welcomed the guests and press to commemorate this joyous night by lighting the 20 feet high Christmas tree with His Excellency Matti Pullinen, Ambassador of Finland to Malaysia. As the Father Christmas for the night, His Excellency received Santa Claus’s letter from Finnish Lapland and it goes a little like this, “I always love to check what my hard-working helpers have written in the huge notebook about what children have been up to… Don’t forget that the elves of Ear Mountain always hear whether or not children have been good. All the things they have written about you have been very good…friendly and kind towards all your friends. Just keep up the good work.”
Once His Excellency finished Santa’s letter, the enchanting, sweet and melodious voices of the children from Gardens International School singing beautiful carols echoed the lobby. A total of 30 young adorable children of all races were brought together to celebrate this charitable event. As the children were singing, every guest was given a golden star — with the cancer patient’s name, gender and age printed on it, to be hung on the Christmas tree.
Everyone was encouraged to pick a golden star, buy a gift, stick the star on the gift and place it at the foot of the tree. Come 20th December, Grand Millennium staff will collect all the gifts and present them to the children at the General Hospital Kuala Lumpur Cancer Pediatric Ward.
Once the Christmas Tree was decorated the with all the Golden Stars, guests were adjourned to the Mill Café to savour more Chef Steven’s delectable cuisines and Christmas main dishes such as Australian Roasted Butterball Turkey, Rosemary Studded Roasted Leg Lamb, Cream Of Pumpkin, Chocolate Yule Log, Mince Pie were just some of the tantalizing dishes served.
