IT’S ALREADY THAT TIME of the year again where we can go crazy with decorating the house and decking the Christmas tree with elaborate Christmas trinkets, singing ‘All I Want for Christmas Is You’ at the top of our voices while baking Christmas goodies.

On December 5, Pullman Kuching kickstarted the festive mood with their Christmas tree light up ceremony in the hotel lobby. For the joyful and cheery event, the light up ceremony was conducted by Santa and his Santarinas who marched into the hotel lobby and started handing out presents to the 40 children from Rumah Kanak-Kanak and the Salvation Army who were invited for the heartwarming event.

The children were also invited to participate in the gingerbread decorating session guided by Pullman Kuching’s chefs.

In addition to the light up ceremony and gingerbread decorating session, other highlights of the event was the life-sized Gingerbread House where members of the public are invited to make donations. Their donations will be displayed inside the house located next to the Christmas tree until December 25th, 2014.

Besides that, Pullman Kuching is also organizing a contest to guess the numbers of macaroons on the edible gingerbread house where any guest aged 18 and above with the minimum RM20 expenditure at any Pullman Kuching outlet is eligible to join.

The winner of the contest will bring home Nu Er Hong RM200 cash voucher and a two days one night stay at Pullman Kuching.

Asides from the exciting contest, the Gingerbread House also serves as a festive booth where guest can purchase goodies and pre order their Christmas takeaway which includes Chocolate Santa, Gingerbread men, Royal Yule Log and assorted Christmas cookies with prices ranges between RM10+ onwards.

The Christmas takeaways include a traditional turkey in Western flavour and Asian turkey in traditional Teo Chew flavour, which is a new signature dish from executive chef Koay Chee Ming.
