It's certainly an early Christmas at Marriott Hotel. With their lobby beautifully decorated with their tall Christmas tree, and their almost life-sized choo choo train made of gingerbread beautifully parked in the middle of their main lobby, you can really feel that Christmas is in the air!
Just a few weekends ago, we witnessed this merry ceremony when Philippine celebrities Richard Gutierrez and partner Sarah Lahbati, together with their adorable baby Zion who did the honors of flipping the switch to light up Marriott Hotel's Christmas tree, signifying the start of the Christmas festivities if this hotel.
The atmosphere was filled with the angelic hyms of Himig Roseña, the choral ambassador of Colegio de Santa Rosa-Makati.
And then all the children, (actually even the adults) were delighted as they heard the sound of a bell from the top of the grand staircase followed by a hearty and joyous "Ho ho ho!" Yep, it was Santa Claus! He came down the stairs carrying a sack filled with colorful and yummy treats for the children!
Baby Zion getting his treat from Santa! (Can I just say, Sarah is super duper pretty!!!)
Coincidentally, Rain was standing nearby so after Baby Zion, she was first in line for Santa hehehe. Good job baby girl! (Was it really just a coincidence or did you masterfully plan this?)

As the night commenced, I happily stuffed myself with their s'mores buffet. It's so good! So good that I wasn't able to take a photo of my s'mores sandwich creations because I would immediately eat it all up. *Burp*
I was also happy that my sister was able to join us that night! Miss Pink Turbo! See more nicer photos we took that night at The Pickiest Eater's Marriott post here!
