Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel made a difference this Ramadan

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, August 2013 - As part of the on-going efforts to give back to the community, the Management of Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel recently organized a special berbuka puasa (breaking of fast) event. All associates and their immediate family members were invited to spread the Ramadan cheer. In addition, the event was made more meaningful with the presence of 40 orphans from Rumah Perlindungan Al Nasuha. Located in Taman Gombak Permai, Selangor, Rumah Perlindungan Al Nasuha is a home to approximately 65 less fortunate children aged one month to seventeen years.

Ramadhan Berbuka Puasa

Approximately 600 people attended the event, which was staged at the elegant Nusantara Ballroom. The children were brought to the ballroom and were given a goodie bag each that was filled with Sheraton bath amenities, stationeries and snacks. A delectable spread of local Ramadan delights were prepared by Banquet Sous Chef, Kabir Abdul Rahman and his team of culinary experts. These included kerabu mangga muda, ulam-ulam kampong with sambal belacan, ikan gelama masin, gulai ayam, ikan bakar Portuguese, Singapore fried bee hoon and many more.

 

The event began with Selawat Nabi (Muslim call for prayers) performed by Ulama’ Masjid Jamek. The guests were privileged to be entertained by two Malaysian comedians Syed Muradzi Syed Shamsul Baharun, also popularly known as Dee and SSharifah Shahirah Syed Abu Bakar. Maghrib prayers were performed and preceded with the breaking of fast at 7.30pm. As the crowd feasted, Chuck Abbott, the Managing Director of Sheraton Imperial Kuala Lumpur Hotel and Regional Director of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Southeast Asia was invited to say a few words, welcoming guests as well as giving gratitude to the culinary team for preparing an amazing spread.

Dee and Sharifah entertained the children as well as the hotel associates and their families with jokes and more. In addition to this, the hosts kept the associates and the little ones busy through music and Wii games. Furthermore, these children were thrilled to have received duit raya from the hotel.

The associates of Sheraton Imperial also shared the spirit of Ramadan by donating RM 1,300 to the home, which was collected from the hotel associates a week prior to the event. This charitable event proved to be a good opportunity to foster closer relationship with the children and it had surely made a positive contribution to the community,
