On 6th December, we gave a grand glimmering send off to 2019 at our Annual BMCC Christmas Luncheon, with our members toasting to the new year with British High Commissioner to Malaysia, H.E. Charles Hay and the BMCC Board of Directors. 

Returning to JW Marriott Kuala Lumpur for a third consecutive year, guests were treated to hearty 4-course meal, serenaded by the talented musicians of Sunway University, the young carolling starlets from Alice Smith School and local band The Fusions. 
 
This year's Luncheon featured a special Christmas Fair with fabulous British and Malaysian brands on display, such as TheSelinaNaylors Farm, Whittard of Chelsea, Halcyon DaysRoslind Enterprise, Lush Malaysia, Budaya Crafts, The Body Shop, Bake with Dignity, Vanilla Mille Crepe, Yankee Malaysia and PurelyB

Our Christmas Luncheon would not have been complete without the fantastic Lucky Draw prizes sponsored by TheSelina, St. Regis Kuala Lumpur, Four Seasons Kuala LumpurMajestic Hotel Kuala Lumpur, BMW, Sunway Medical Centre, KPJ Healthcare, Sports Direct and Malaysia Airlines, culminating to the grand prize of a pair of 2 Return Business Class tickets by British Airways. Our Best Dressed Lady and Gentlemen too returned home rewarded for turning up in style. We thank all our lucky draw sponsors and fair exhibitors for making it the joyous afternoon it was, and of course, our corporate table sponsors!

The BMCC wishes to thank all who attended and indeed all our sponsors, partners and members for their support throughout 2019. From all of us at the BMCC, Merry Christmas, happy holidays and we’ll see you next year!
