SANDAKAN: The spirit of Christmas is beginning to fill the ambience of Four Points by Sheraton Sandakan, from Christmas Card Designing Competition to a Season’s Cocktail & Mocktail Competition.

As Marriott International focuses on Women in Leadership, General Manager, Peter Padman felt that it was only apt to pay tribute to some of the world’s leading women who have been great leaders in their own, professional capacities and there was no better time to celebrate their achievement.

The food and beverages team under the guidance of Assistant Venue Manager, Abdul Hamid got the festive mood swinging with a total of 26 participants from various departments showing off their innovation, creativity and hidden talents to concoct cocktails and mocktails.

The two-day event was judged live for the alcoholic category while the mocktails were ‘blind tasted’.

Associates from all departments participated with eagerness not with the intention of winning any prizes but for the sake of experiencing such competition – which will soon be held at an inter-hotel level in Sandakan.

The winners ranged from kitchen apprentices to telephone operators, supervisors and even departmental managers – which were also resulted to be very healthy bonding session.

The judges who were visiting Sandakan from Kuala Lumpur, Chennai (India) and Amsterdam (Holland) were more than happy to be part of the fun – as Ron Thakoer of Holland said, “It’s great and explosive fun when the hotel is giving you 14 complimentary cocktails to taste for free, so why not?!”

The winners for the Alcoholic Cocktails were: 1. Ersan Bin Saiddulanam (Food & Beverages Service) 2. Abdul Nasir (Food & Beverages Service) 3. Alan Chang (Purchasing Assistant) 4. Mohamad Farid Fahmi (Food & Beverages Service)
