Launching of “Selera Desa” Ramadan Buffet

Last month, Ancasa Hotel & Spa Kuala Lumpur launched their Ramadan Buffet together with a line-up of activities for the local community and the hotel’s corporate supporters. The launch kicked off at 3pm with the traditional cooking of ‘Bubur Lambuk’ at the Hotel Porch by the Hotel’s Culinary and Management Team. Bubur Lambuk means Lambuk Porridge is a popular dish during fasting month in Malaysia. It is commonly prepared together at mosque and distributed to  public as break fast food. It is made with rice and mixed with vegetables and spices.

The delicious and freshly prepared porridge was then packed and distributed to more than 700 people who were in the vicinity of Pudu Sentral and Chinatown. 

According to the hotel’s General Manager, En. Shah Azam Khan, the live-cooking and distribution of Bubur Lambuk has been a 16-year old tradition for the hotel and he hopes to keep this tradition alive for many more years ahead.


The event continued till night with the hosting of break fast for 40 orphans from Rumah Kasih Nurul Hasanah, Ukay Heights. as part of their CSR programme. After the breaking of fast, the Senior Management of UDA Holdings presented each child with ‘duit raya’ and ‘baju raya’.
