Spreading festive cheer among the elderly

BERJAYA Times Square Hotel (BTSH) recently hosted a Chinese New Year celebration for 40 residents of the Tong SimSenior Citizens Care Centre.


The hotel was represented by a team of 32 employees, who made their way to the home to bring cheer and celebrate the festive occasion with the elderly folk.

The visit was part of the hotel’s January CSR initiative. The team was led by the hotel’s financial controller Tin Yew Boon. Apart from being treated to a festive feast that included a “lou sang” session, the senior citizens were presented with ang pows. The team was delighted about the visit, shared Tin.


“We are very happy to be here today to visit the elderly residents of Tong Sim Senior Citizens Care Centre, who have so many life stories to share.

“Spending time with them has been very rewarding, we do hope that our little visit today has also brought them cheer during this Chinese NewYear festivity. We are a strong believer in giving back to the communities we serve and we will strive to achieve a perfect balance between business and fulfilling our social responsibilities,” he added.
