Nutcrackers highlight of hotel’s festive affair

THE majestic sight of a six-metre tall Christmas tree decked in thousands of red and gold baubles with twinkle lights can take one’s breath away.

For good reason, a tree lighting ceremony was held at the lobby of St Regis Kuala Lumpur to usher in the festive season launched by the hotel’s general manager Renato De Oliveira and One IFC Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Carmen Chua.

The event themed after Christmas nutcrackers was to also unveil festive treats, food promotions and Christmas sale at the hotel until Jan 1.

This was accompanied with Christmas carols sung by Of Feathers & Chapters a cappella group.

Four tall wooden nutcracker soldiers were placed around the hotel for added effect.
