Hotel Jen Manila (formerly Traders Hotel) celebrated their 1st anniversary last March 31, 2016 with a theme “We Are One”.
The celebration was also observed together with the other Hotel Jen properties in South East Asia simultaneously: Hotel Jen Penang, Hotel Jen Brisbane, Hotel Jen Shenyang, Hotel Jen Hong Kong, Hotel Jen Puteri Harbour, Hotel Jen Male,Hotel Jen Upper East Beijing, Hotel Jen Orchard Gateway and Hotel Jen Tanglin which were shown via Periscope app projected on a wide screen at the Windows By The Bay – the newly opened outlet inside Hotel Jen Manila.
It was also there where the three layered cake was displayed with a Philippine flag that symbolizes the Filipino culture. The ceremonial cake cutting was led by Hotel Jen Manila’s General Manager, Ed Kollmer.
But the festivities didn’t end there. Hotel Jen Manila’s celebration continued at the poolside with a very Filipino ambiance. The fiesta concept was very colorful and merry, showcasing the culture of our county by way of traditional games and a scrumptious feast that everybody enjoyed.
We know that Filipinos have tremendous love for eating and cooking – a trait that we are fondly known for. That is why in almost every occasion, the food spread is always wonderful. In addition, every Filipino celebration has a delicious Lechon (roasted suckling pig) on display – the highlight and most awaited dish.
Other dishes on display were the famous Kare-Kare, Kaldereta, Fresh Lumpia, assorted Ensalada, Kilawin, Seafood and Pansit to name a few. Local refreshments such as fresh buko juice, sago’t gulaman, melon juice and pandan juice were served as well to complement the variety of the delicious fare.
The “Sorbetes ice cream” was also a huge hit to guests. They even have a dessert station filled with fresh fruits in season and kakanin.
It was definitely a night of merry-making and creating wonderful memories. Congratulations, Hotel Jen Manila, on your 1st Anniversary!
