Kuala Lumpur, 24 June 2015 ­– In the spirit of Ramadan, the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (the Centre) brought smiles to 80 excited children from Living HOPE* and Persatuan Kebajikan Generasi Gemilang* (PKGG) when the youngsters were treated to the Centre’s sumptuous ‘Kampung Classics’ buka puasa buffet of an array of traditional and contemporary favourites.

But before sitting down to enjoy their meal, the young guests were invited to put on their creative hat for some ‘sweet, sticky, icy’ fun! Guided by the Centre’s chefs and team members, the children decorated stick ice cream to create their own signature lolly ice cream which they later happily slurped away as one of their buka puasa desserts.

A beaming Dr Peggy Wong, founder and chairman of Living HOPE, thanked the Centre for this annual outing which is “made extra memorable with a creative and fun activity.  The children look forward to the Centre’s buka puasa feast every year but it is extra special for those (children) who are breaking fast outside the home for the first time.”

“The children really enjoy the occasion as many never have the opportunity to visit the Centre or experience 5-star cuisine,” said Mr. Law Gin Kye, founder of PKGG.

The Centre also presented goodie bags of sweet treats and duit raya to the young VIPs.
