The students, identified from needy families in the neighbourhood, enjoyed a sumptuous spread dubbed Buffet ala Citrawarna where appetizers, soups, local favourites, Raya delicacies as well as Arabian treats and Chinese dishes were presented in a mouth-watering and colourful palette.

This annual charity event was part of Pulai Springs Resort’s Corporate Social Responsibility Programme in caring for the less fortunate in the neighbouring area and giving back to the community.

Aged between 13 and 17, the students were mainly orphans and children from under-privileged families, who were guests at the resort for the very first time.

On arrival, they were welcomed by resort General Manager, Sunny Soo, and chairman of the resort’s Sports & Welfare Club, Mohd Najib Sedik, along with committee members and resort staff.

The event kicked off with a word of welcome from Soo who said that the resort team believes in the spirit of sharing and caring especially with the young guests during this festive season. Hosting the Ramadan buffet was just one of the ways of sharing this wonderful festive season with them.

“This is an annual event and Pulai Springs Resort looks forward to celebrating many more occasions with the less fortunate and share the company’s success with them,” he added.

Soo presented the students with duit raya in the sum of RM50 each, contributed by the resort as well as their Sports & Welfare Club.

The students also each received a goodie bag of stationery sponsored by Schwan-STABILO Marketing and food items of cereals and chocolates that were generously donated by a resident of Cinta Ayu Apartments in Pulai Springs Resort.

The 30 families represented also received a package of essential food items that included rice (5kg), flour, sugar, coffee powder, condensed milk and cooking oil, to help them prepare for the coming Hari Raya celebrations.

The event continued with a prayer recitation by a resort staff, followed by the breaking of fast with the tradition of eating dried dates before going into Maghrib prayers.

Then the students returned to the restaurant to enjoy a leisurely meal from the buffet and happily helped themselves to more of their favourite items.

To add some fun to the event, the resort staff played a quiz game with the students where prizes were given away for the right answers. Then a group of vocally talented male students presented Nasyid songs at the close of the event.
