The Peranakan themed evening cocktail was held in an elegant and joyous affair commencing with the Baba Nyonya opening dance performance. As the guests were ushered into the ballroom, they were treated to a sumptuous cocktail spread specially prepared by our very own kitchen team led by our in-house Chefs.
The highlight of the evening was the presentation of the 35-year anniversary cake specially designed in the shape of a bakul siah prepared by the pastry chef, Chef Ramiswazila and her team. Holding significance to the local Melaka heritage and flavours, the cake was a replica of the traditional Melaka basket which symbolizes richness and prosperity, fitting and symbolic to our hotel’s rich cultures with a vision to prosper and overflow with only the best service. Yet another symbolic gesture was the presentation of the cake by the staff who represents the melting pot of cultures within the hotel and the years of service which they have dedicated to fulfil the vision of the hotel spanning over 10 – 35 years.
It was a memorable evening as we commemorated 35 years, aging gracefully amidst new opportunities, challenges and emerging competition. What started out as a vision of the owners from MTB has become a full-fledged reality, and now with the strength of the Wyndham Hotel group being the largest hotel chain by numbers, we will continue to be the hotel of choice within the historical city of Melaka.
