They were joined by former and current residents of the home, invited guests and dignitaries, the senior management team from The Saujana Hotel Kuala Lumpur and members of the media.

The inclusion of the upbeat jazzy tune, presented by the Jazzy Carolers from Putera Aman Assembly Church, brought the joyful spirit of the season of giving to the event.
Guests at the high tea were treated to a scrumptious selection of local and international cuisine prepared by the dedicated team of chefs from the hotel. Delicacies included a selection of savory finger sandwiches, sweet pastries, and traditional Malay kuih with apple crème brulee, raspberry pistachio cake and crepes suzette with apples cube, banana sliced and strawberry.
Exciting activities were organized such as entertaining Christmas games and an astounding fusion dance performance by the talented sisters, Anagha Laxmi Ramesh and Baghya Laxmi Ramesh.
The afternoon continued with a delightful string of performances by the former EEP students.
