Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur, a five-star luxury hotel in the heart of Bukit Bintang, today hosted its annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony in the hotel lobby to usher in the magical holiday season. Continuing a tradition that started years ago, the event was officiated by Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Ammar Abd Ghapar, Senior Director of Tourism Malaysia, alongside His Excellency Mr Petri Juhani Puhakka, Ambassador of the Republic of Finland to Malaysia and witnessed by officials from the Malaysia Book of Records.

The evening kicked-off with the hotel’s General Manager, Mr Peter Gibbons welcoming guests, followed by a speech from Yang Berbahagia Dato’ Ammar Abd Ghapar and the reading of a special letter from Santa Claus by His Excellency Mr Petri Juhani Puhakka. The spirit of the festive season was shared with in-house guests, media friends, corporate clients as well as other luminaries from various walks of life.

Moments after the 20 feet tall Christmas tree was illuminated, 50 golden stars which carried the name, gender and age of children from the Paediatric Oncology Unit of the General Hospital Kuala Lumpur were placed on the tree to mark the launch of the hotel’s yearly corporate social responsibility programme, ‘A Star for a Child’. 

Running for the ninth year now, the yuletide charity campaign invites visitors and guests to pick a star from the cherished Christmas tree to sponsor a gift for their chosen child. All gifts will then be placed under the tree and personally hand-delivered on 20th December 2016 to the children at the hospital. 


“The festive season is a time of celebration and reflection. It is a time to give thanks for the many blessings and opportunities bestowed upon us and it is also a time for sharing and giving. As we reach out to family, friends and business associates, we also open our hearts to those who are less fortunate. We are truly delighted to continue a wonderful tradition that was started years ago, more so one that sends a strong message of hope to the children and their families,” said Mr Peter Gibbons, General Manager of Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur.

For the first time, Grand Millennium Kuala Lumpur was inducted into the Malaysia Book of Records following its success in recording a feat for the nation’s Biggest Advent Calendar House. The 5.5m x 7.3m structure resembled a three-storey cottage and featured 25 numbered windows, each with a lighted festive Christmas scene. Starting from 1st December 2016, a selected guest will be invited to unveil one window to countdown to the 25 days of Christmas.
