One World Hotel Petaling Jaya Sharing Some Festive Cheer With Joy Haven Home For The Elderly

February 27, 2017 Responsible Tourism No Comments Email Email

To herald the lunar year of the Fire Rooster, the Public Relations department of One World Hotel Petaling Jaya continued its tradition of giving by organising yet another unforgettable Chinese New Year luncheon for Joy Haven Home for The Elderly, recently.

The momentous event kicked off with the tossing of yee sang whereby everyone gathered around the table, held their chopsticks and raised it up high while uttering multiple well wishes. Next, the elderly enjoyed a specially prepared lunch by the hotel’s culinary brigade, accompanied by volunteers representing the hotel from various departments (Finance, Front Office, Human Resources and Food and Beverages)

“The elderly love the customised food! They finished everything which is a surprise as they do not usually do so. Today is indeed a special day” said Joy Haven Home caretaker, Major Alice.

‘Yee sang’ was tossed along with an exchange of words of blessings for joy, harmony and health at the common area.

The luncheon ended with presentation of ang pow and boxes of provisions to the residents and caretakers of the home. As a form of appreciation, one of the female residents serenaded the crowd with the popular festive rendition titled “Gong Xi Fa Chai”.

Ms. Feryal Mufti, Public Relations Manager of One World Hotel hopes that the initiative will bring the elderly joy and happiness for she believed that they need more love and attention in their old age.

Ang pow are handed to the senior citizens by Director of Finance, Joanne Chow.

Apart from financial assistance, good samaritans may also offer skills or sharing some quality time with the less fortunate. For further information, please contact Major Alice at 0165297745 or email her at
