Hotel’s refreshment stall a hit with devotees

GEORGE TOWN: More than 2,500 devotees thronged the thaneer panthal (refreshment stall) set up by the Sunway Hotel Georgetown and Sunway Hotel Seberang Jaya in Jalan Datuk Keramat for the annual Thaipusam chariot procession.

The devotees enjoyed a feast featuring rice, potato peratal, pumpkin, and assorted gravies.

Under the vibrant tent, an orderly line formed as eager devotees patiently awaited their turn.

Dressed in traditional attire, the enthusiastic hotel staff joyfully served the guests.

Sunway Hotel Georgetown and Sunway Hotel Seberang Jaya general manager Prakash Kumaran highlighted the significance of this collaborative event, emphasising the commitment of the Sunway Group to giving back to society.

He expressed pride in the team effort put forth by the staff, dedicating their time to set up the stall and prepare the food and drinks.

“This initiative aligned seamlessly with the group’s dedication to supporting Sustainable Development Goal 2,” he said yesterday.

The event further witnessed the active involvement of staff from both hotels, who not only assisted in preparing the delectable offerings but also played a role in acquiring sacred ashes for the well-being of the participants.

Thaipusam is today, with the chariot processions having started yesterday and again tomorrow.

Over a million people are expected to gather at the three-day Thaipusam celebration.
