G Hotel Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony

Each year, G Hotel has a tradition of lighting the huge Christmas tree which mark the start of Christmas celebration. Again, I am honored to be invited by G Hotel to attend this beautiful event. I went there with Constance, blogger of Food Hunter Concon, who was my driver on that day. Really thanks a lot for always driving me here and there, I appreciate it. :)

We arrived at G Hotel half an hour earlier so we decided to walk around first. Quickly, we saw this G Snowman in front of G Hotel as it is just too cute that we simply cant ignored it! Every time during a festive season, the big "G" in front of G Hotel will get all dressed up and this is undoubtedly an eye-catching feature of G Hotel.

At first I though that the Christmas tree would be somewhere outside the hotel. The fact that it was inside the hotel's lobby does surprise me, not to mention it was pretty huge and tall! Once we were inside the hotel, the marketing communications manager, Christina quickly spot us. As friendly as always, she welcomed us in the warmest way. Later, we were served by the marketing communication assistant manager, Ann. Another friendly person indeed!

And yes! This was my 4th time in a month drinking alcoholic drinks and I was having them twice at G Hotel (last time was during the Tree Bar food review)! On this special night, I get myself a glass of red wine, a glass of fruit punch and many glasses of Eggnog! Eggnog was an alcoholic drink that was only available during Christmas time. It was a creamy drink that mixed with milk and egg. The taste is so nice that I just couldn't stop having it. XD

 The Christmas tree lighting ceremony was opened to public. Thus the night was crowded with people. The spirit of Christmas is to give, and G Hotel has done it well. All the guests get to enjoy the refreshments and drinks prepared by G Hotel while enjoying the view of the gorgeous Christmas tree that fits perfectly in the lounge.

Among the refreshments served are the Christollen, fruit cake, mince pie, cookies, and tuna puff.

 There were sandwiches as well, which came with 3 different fillings, namely tuna, cheese and eggs. You know what? Perhaps the tuna at G Hotel was the tastiest and freshest that I have ever ate. Me and Constance love it very much! Nice!

The night was continued with two sessions of caroling performances. The first session was performed by the International Women Associations.

 The events end with the launching of "A Time To Give", which is a G Hotel's annual charity event in the aid of the Salvation Army.


I got this lovely little gift (let's call it G Bear) from G Hotel. I was told that G Bear has a total of six, each with different colour and different hat design. Feel like collecting all of them and present them to my future love one. XD

Thank you very much G Hotel, for hosting this meaningful and harmony event. I was having a good time with all of you and the bloggers. I appreciate it! :)
