Pre-Ramadhan Dinner at The Dining Room, Pullman Miri Waterfront

Our Muslim brothers and sisters will observe the sacred Ramadhan month soon. Pullman Miri Waterfront organized a Pre-Ramadhan dinner on May 25 and the young Guests of Honor were children from Kompleks Anak-anak Yatim Rumah Hamidah Yakup.

Ramadhan Client Appreciation Night

This celebration is part of Pullman Miri Waterfront’s Corporate Social Responsibility effort and commitment in giving back and reaching out to the surrounding community.

It is an honor to be able to celebrate with these children; I’m sensitive and empathetic when it comes to the subject of orphans – having lost my dad, sister, and brother (I’m left without any sibling). It makes me happy to see them smiling and enjoying their dinner. There were a total of 90 children and carers being treated to a special pre-Ramadhan dinner at The Dining Room, Pullman Miri Waterfront.

Below: Mr Jayson Chong, Hotel Manager of Pullman Miri Waterfront giving his welcoming speech. He said that they at Pullman Miri Waterfront Miri are very honored to be able to celebrate this special event with the children and staff of Kompleks Kebajikan Hamidah Yakup. They hope that this can be a great example to our children in showing them the spirit of unity and respect towards the festive season celebrated by our Muslim friends.

He also added that they are proud to showcase our unique culture in Sarawak – where everyone celebrates all festivals together in harmony. He believes that there is no greater pleasure than being able to share our cultures and celebrations despite our background differences. He also thanked the Guests of Honor for taking time out of their busy schedules to join the rest of the guests in this meaningful event.

The Guest of Honor was Miri City Mayor, Mr. Adam Yii, who came with his lovely wife. Also present was Mr. Albert Hu, Group Executive Director of Interhill Group.

The welcoming speech was followed by a prayer / doa recital by Ustaz Mohd Ansari from Pejabat Agama Islam Bahagian Miri. After the prayer had finished, guests began to savor the delicious food prepared by dedicated chefs and crew of Pullman Kitchen. While guests enjoyed their food, dancers from PAMELA Dancers entertained the crowd with graceful traditional dances. By 7.40 pm, carers and children of the orphanage proceeded to surau at Junior Ballroom for Isyak prayer. As the dinner came to an end, Mr Albert Hu – Group Executive Director of Interhill Group, presented green packets to the children.

Among the guests, there were representatives from Jabatan Agama Islam, members of the press, children and staff of Kompleks Kebajikan Hamidah Yakup, loyal clients, and representatives from Sarawak Bloggers.

All this appetizing parade of food is also a preview of the upcoming Bazaar Ramadhan Buffet Dinner which will commence on May 27 and it will feature three menu rotations on a nightly basis until the end of Ramadhan. Some of you may ask, how about Gawai? Worry not, because there will be a 2-day Gawai Festive Buffet at Pullman Kitchen on the 1st and 2nd of June. Yay!

This is Pullman Miri Waterfront’s first pre-Ramadhan dinner. Guests were treated to a delightful Ramadhan buffet spread of 98 different food items. Always ready to serve their best, the awesome chefs at Pullman Kitchen had prepared mouthwatering favorites such as the bubur pedas, lemang, cucur udang, shawarma, whole lamb stuffed with oozi rice, and local-themed desserts. I love the bubur cha-cha. I’d totally forgotten about my diet!

All the staff of Pullman Miri Waterfront looked wonderful that evening; the men were dashing in their Baju Melayu, while the ladies were elegant in their Baju KurungKebaya, and uniforms.

The picture was snapped by my husband, using madam Cecilia’s mobile phone. I regret I lost half of the photos I’d taken that evening due to data corruption. Till then, parting is such sweet sorrow.
