This year, I started my Christmas holiday season with a very fun and meaningful celebration with Parkroyal Hotel on Kitchener Road. As part of the christmas tree light up, the hotel collaborated with the People’s Association and Thye Hua Kwan Moral Society to bring 24 underprivileged children attending Thye Hua Kwan Moral Student Care Centre @ Bukit Panjang for a special surprise. An additional six children from low-income families were also selected to join the programme. The children are invited to hang their Christmas wish envelopes on the hotel’s Christmas tree before enjoying a dinner treat at Spice Brasserie, the hotel’s all day dining restaurant.
Hotel guests and members of the public can help make their Christmas wishes come true by buying a gift, or making a monetary donation. The children will receive their Christmas gifts when they return to Spice Brasserie on Boxing Day for a festive feast with the hotel’s management team. All funds collected will be used to fulfill the children’s Christmas gift wishes, and the hotel will contribute a token sum of $1,000 for the children’s school supplies in 2016.
I’m always in favour of corporations that gives back to society and am glad to have been invited to attend this event. We we all treated to a gorgeous buffet dinner in the hotel at Spice Brasserie.
On the culinary front, making a comeback this year is the highly raved Festive Takeaway Platter, filled with sliced and ready to-serve festive favourites like Roast Turkey Slices, Pork Liver with Chestnut Stuffing and classic cranberry Sauce, Honey Glazed Gammon Ham paired with homemade peach sauce, Cumberland Sausage and Salt-crusted Sirloin Beef with Au Jus dip, roasted potatoes and seasonal vegetables. Easy and fuss free for any parties and gatherings, the Festive Takeaway Platter is available from 4 – 31 December 2015 at $98 and selected cards enjoy 20% discount.

Thank you ParkRoyal on Kitchener for the wonderful dinner. I highly recommend the pumpkin crab and chilli crab in the buffet selections. They were a hit with everyone that night and incredibly worth trying out for crab lovers. If you haven’t found a place for celebrations during this festive season, don’t miss out.
