Holiday Inn Kuala Lumpur Glenmarie joined the world on 27th March 2010 and showed its support towards Earth Hour.

Our F&B team managed to set the mood...

The F&B Team geared up for Earth Hour with their set up

The agenda for the night included an auction of paintings and cakes. Proceeds went to WWF and The Selangor Cheshire Home.

Our long stay guests joined us see the world in a new light (as well as assist to auction items!) and we were pleased to welcome some residents from the housing estates nearby too!
Take a look at some of the many faces who came for the good cause...

Japanese Cooking Class For The Ladies Of Glenmarie Residences

27th March 2010, Saturday - After some brain storming among the Eat and Drink Team, we opened up an invitation to the Ladies of Glenmarie Residences (our neighbours!) to come and join us for a Japanese Cooking Class.
We've been staying so near for so long, and we decided that it was time to get to know who's in our neighbourhood.

Fu-Rin Japanese Restaurant was where it all happened, and its tiny kitchen limited to accepting only eight participants.
The programme included a lesson on three special recipes, followed by a food tasting cum lunch session. All participants recieved handouts with complete recipes and information on Japanese items, as well as their own chef's hat and personalised aprons!

The Excited Eight (L-R): Nobue, Maria, Sue, Lynn, Jasmine, Cathy, Ming Chen, Christine

Teachers for the day were Chef Mitsuo Yoshida, Fu-Rin's resident Japanese Chef, and Chef Mike, Fu-Rin Sous Chef.
Chef Mike who spent years working in Japan doubled as a translator for the day as Chef Yoshida introduced the ingredients and explained how they can and should be used.

To our eight special ladies: We're looking forward to meeting all of you once again for our next F&B activity and also when you visit our outlets soon!
Special thanks to Cathy who assisted us with the invitations!
And to everyone else: We be inviting you soon... We're just waiting to have you with us!
Just wait for it... Our Eat and Drink Family is expanding and we're uber excited!
