“The perfect Christmas tree? All Christmas Trees are perfect.”-Charles N.Barnard

Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu initiated the season’s festivities at the hotel with a choral performance by 15 children from Kinabalu International School. A Christmas tree lighting ceremony with about 70 invited guests held simultaneously provided an appreciative audience for the children who filled the air with magical tunes of Christmas Carols and 25 #deafjam performers who did a sign language flash mob at The Hub, lobby level.

Lead by Charmaine Ku, the school’s music teacher, the children performed 2 sessions of carols which lasted about 25 minutes each. They performed songs such as Santa Claus is coming to Town, Rudolph The Red-nosed Reindeer, Jingle Bells and many more, much to the crowd’s delight.  The children, aged 6 to 10 years old, had spent about 3-4 months practising their singing prior to the evening and enhanced their repertoire with violins, flutes and a saxophone.


Deafjam Volunteer for Sign Language Flash Mob

Le Meridien Kota Kinabalu and Tapuk- Tapuk, a non-government creative collective, collaborated and brought 32 students, teachers, volunteers and hotel associates together for a sign language mini workshop and sign language flash mob.  The sign language mini workshop and a Deaf Jam Flash Mob took place after the tree lighting ceremony.
