Review: Christmas Light-Up @ Impiana KLCC Hotel

>> Thursday, December 16, 2010

Christmas is just a week away! Malls are packed with people purchasing gifts for their loved ones, while hotels are just as busy offering delightful ranges of food & entertainment.

It was a pleasure to be invited to the Christmas Light-Up at Impiana Hotel, KLCC last Thursday, 9th December 2010. Sharifah & Jihan have not only been the PR personnel whom I got to know, but friends whom I can sit down for a laughter-filled chat :)

The Christmas Light-Up began with carols filling the air, sung by a group of young carollers, followed by the lighting-up of Christmas trees in the hotel. It was indeed a beautiful occasion! Santa Claus was also around to give out candy canes, while Santarinas were moving around with baskets of teddy bears to be sold for a charity fund-raising event.

Loads of cookies

And the Christmas Stollen Cake

After all the hustle & bustle at the lobby, all guests were invited to a Christmas buffet spread, specially prepared by Impiana’s team of chefs. You’ll find the much awaited Christmas turkey, roast lamb, & a good array of other meat (the chefs at Impiana are somewhat meat-lovers, hence the abundance of meat dishes!), alongside the all-time favourite salad bar. There were also more than 7 types of cakes & cookies, much to my delight!

Spread of "Christmas dishes"

Here's some of the food that I savoured that evening:

"Seafood Chowder"
I enjoyed having chunks of fish & whole medium-size prawns in my creamy soup :)

(from top left, clockwise) Turkey with Prunes Sauce (I like!), Roast Lamb with Mint Gelee (Thumbs up!), Baked Mashed Potatoes with Seafood (Not too bad ;)), Spicy Prawns (acceptable)

Assortment of cold dishes
The smoked salmon with tangerine sauce was my favourite! Their chicken salad wasn't too bad either :)

Ah, I'm so thankful for the invite from Sharifah :) Good food, good fellowship!

Coming to think of it, the true meaning of Christmas has somewhat dwindled to commercialism. Amidst the lovely food, joyous laughter, & love-filled gift exchange, Christ-followers around the world will be remembering the greatest gift to all mankind, Jesus Christ, who came into the world more than 2000 years ago, in the form of a human, yet fully God, to save us sinful mankind from eternal death; all for His glory. God’s love through His Son, Jesus Christ, is the greatest gift given, & the greatest gift to be received.

Have you opened that gift that has been given to you... a long time ago...even before you were born?

Have a blessed Christmas & a great year ahead!

In the Christmas mood,
