Petaling Jaya (24 March 2023) – Tropicana Golf & Country Resort, a subsidiary of Tropicana Corporation Berhad (“Tropicana”), rolled out its famous Santapan 28 Malam on a positive note by spreading festive cheer to 100 children from three orphanage homes. In the spirit of the Ramadhan, the children broke their fast with the resort’s celebrated Santapan 29 Malam – Selera Muhibbah Iftar buffet, with the homes receiving duit raya and cash donations.
The charitable move was held in line with the environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) principles of Tropicana’s charity arm, Tropicana Foundation. Allan Wong Weng Keong, Executive Director of Tropicana, shared more on the visit.
“The month of Ramadhan brings ample opportunity for reflection and appreciation. With Tropicana’s focus on reaching out to those in need as we Redefine the Art of Caring, we brought underprivileged children and their caretakers to Tropicana Golf & Country Resort, where we pioneered resort-style development in 1992. Surrounded by the warmth and hospitality of our signature kampung-style dining, we invited them to break their fast with over 300 dishes and live cooking stations, while supporting each home with cash donations,” he elaborated.
Buka puasa was preceded by a lively presentation of the upcoming dishes by 12 chefs and assistants, showcasing specialities such as spicy pomfret with bird’s eye chilli and bay leaf, chicken peratal and Sarawak black pepper beef. Introduced this year, the beef skin in coconut curry with bird’s eye chilli is a Negeri Sembilan favourite, bringing out the flavour of the beef through a meticulous preparation process.
Hailing from Rumah Perlindungan Safiyyah, Pusat Jagaan Amal Asyura and Pertubuhan Kebajikan Ehsan Ash-Shakur, the children tucked into the Iftar buffet. The sumptuous spread offered both traditional fare and international cuisine, ranging from asam pedas daging and ikan tenggiri masak singgang to lamb marmite, oden noodles and chicken tandoori. The ayam & daging gulai kawah is the signature dish of Santapan 29 Malam – Selera Muhibbah, with succulent, tender beef brimming with fragrant savoury, spicy notes. A version with chicken was added this year, for diners who prefer white meat.
Along with the donation, the charitable initiative underscored Tropicana’s commitment to engaging with and uplifting underprivileged segments of society. In 2022, Tropicana Foundation channelled RM3 million to charitable causes across Malaysia.
Running till 21 April 2023, Santapan 29 Malam – Selera Muhibbah includes highlights such as ghazal performances, authentic traditional décor including a real kampung house as an entrance statement, a new central surau and ample free parking with buggy shuttle service. The Iftar buffet is available for private events, with tickets ranging from RM60 (children) and RM128 (adults) for members to RM75 (children) and RM148 (adults) for non-members. For bookings, please call 03-7804 8888 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
