It’s barely 2 weeks to Christmas now! How time flies! End of the year is always my favourite because of the festive mood, the more laid-back environment at work and the continuous binging on food! 😛 But while we’re happily celebrating the season of joy, don’t forget the less fortunate. This year, Prince Hotel KL shares the Christmas spirit with 40 children from the Agathians Shelter Home in PJ, a center that cares for orphans, abandoned, neglected or abused children. I joined them in the Christmas celebration last year, I certainly wouldn’t miss it out this year. 🙂
Before that, let’s take a look at some of the Christmas spread as offered by Eccucino. I enjoyed the Roasted lamb the most. It was quite tender and moist, and together with the tasty gravy, it was bursting with juices. Another dish I liked was the Steamed Seabass, which was fresh and had silky smooth flesh. It was also nicely paired with the ginger-sesame sauce, making it delectable without the fishy smell.

Of course, how can Christmas be complete without the Christmas desserts? The standard log cake was there to welcome us. So was the cute Gingerbread man! Not to forget was the ice-cream counter with plenty of flavours to choose from and a variety of toppings to be added. My favourite was the chocolate and vanilla ice-cream topped with chocolate sauce, Oreo cookies and lots of love letters. 🙂

The kids from Agathians were all nicely dressed in the festive red t-shirts and were extremely excited with their party packs. Each one of them couldn’t wait to break the party popper open with a resounding pop! Once they were seated, the General Manager of Prince Hotel Mr Tim started to hand out Christmas gifts to the children individually. It was quite a sight to behold, seeing the kids to be so well-mannered no matter how young they were, and to receive their Christmas gifts with a polite “Thank You”. Puts a smile on my face! 🙂

Apart from the Christmas lunch, the hotel also prepared some fun activities for the kids such as gingerbread house decoration, magical clown show, face painting and sand painting. The kids were having so much fun that by the time we left at 4pm, they were all still busy with their gingerbread house. 🙂
The kids say Merry Christmas!
