Smashing Smurfy Christmas
December 6, 2017
The lobby of Dorsett Kuala Lumpur was plunged into darkness but not for long. Its general manager Adele Ang pushed a switch and the 3m-tall Christmas tree twinkled with festive cheer from the strings of lightbulbs wound around its branches.
Earlier, Papa Smurf and Smurfette from the Movie Animation Park Studios, dropped in to mingle with invited guests and members of the media gathered to witness the tree-lighting ceremony.
This year, Dorsett Hotels are making the Smurf plush toys collection as well as its Dorsett Bear Knapsacks available for sale at RM100nett to collect funds for The Children’s Wish Society and Persatuan Penjagaan Kanak Kanak Cacat Klang.

For those who prefer their meats and seafood cooked on the spot, there’s the grill station, where you make your selection and hand them over to chef Yi Hien who happily obliges with a huge smile.
Then there are cold cuts and cured salmon as well as the ever-popular freshly-shucked oysters, mussels and tiger prawns on ice, best savoured with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice.

I love the white almond soup. Creamy and full of flavour, the hot soup with bits of chopped vegetables, hits all the right spots.
