“Instead of the usual monthly birthday celebration where we serve either buffet lunch or high tea, we came up with the idea of a durian fest,” human resource and administration director Mohd Gazali Sayed said.
“Not only did we enjoy the delicious D24 durians, we had a good time interacting with each other,” he said.
A one-tonne lorry transported loads of D24 durians, rambutans and mangosteens for the 300-strong staff of the hotel.
“We had to make sure the staff members didn’t overeat as the durians were incredibly good,” Mohd Gazali said.
He said it was the management's way of thanking the staff for their hard work during the month of July, the busiest time for the hotel.
“It was definitely a good change from having buffets. Even though durian is not my favourite fruit, I thoroughly enjoyed the mangosteens and rambutans. It was fun seeing my colleagues enjoying their durians,” said purchasing assistant Nik Khamsiah.
