SIXTY residents of Beautiful Gate Foundation (BGF) for the Disabled were overwhelmed when Bukit Kiara Properties (BKP) paid them a charity call at their premise in conjunction with the Chinese New Year celebration at Kepong Baru.

The residents, from BGF’s centres in Petaling Jaya and Kepong, could not hide their happiness as BKP, a premier condominium developer in Kuala Lumpur, became their first and only corporate visitor since the Lunar New Year started on Feb 18.

BGF executive director Sia Siew Chin said the residents were overjoyed to learn of BKP’s compassion and magnanimity as they were starved of a major corporate visitor for this auspicious occasion for so long. She said the residents were elated and appreciative that a good corporate citizen had taken time off from its busy schedule to make them feel wanted by donating RM3,000 cash, distributing Ang Pows, mandarin oranges and serving lunch to everyone in the centre.

BKP’s staff even purchased handicrafts from the centre. BKP’s group managing director Mr N.K. Tong said, “The charity call is consistent with our company’s caring attitude which fits well into one of our four core values – Integrity, Innovation, Quality and Caring.”

As part of BKP’s annual corporate community service programme, Tong said BKP continually seeks out deserving charity homes to support and celebrate during the nation’s major festivals.

“For this round, BGF warranted our support as they are genuinely working for the disabled, privately-funded and in dire need of money to support a broad range of skills training activities. In this context, we’re glad to cheer up the residents in BGF especially during this Chinese New Year and extend them a helping hand,” he added.

The following day (Mar 1), BKP celebrated Chinese New Year with 50 elderly disabled residents of Asrama Cahaya Infant Jesus Convent at Bukit Nanas, Kuala Lumpur, by throwing them a delectable hi-tea and donating eight hampers to the home.

In line with BKP’s Code of Ethics, these hampers given by contractors to BKP staff over Chinese New Year were promptly declared to management and set aside for the home. A delighted Sister Stephanie, the home’s principal, was appreciative of BKP’s kind gesture, saying it was the second time that BKP had celebrated the Chinese New Year with them.

Showing leadership by example, a normally suit-clad Tong garbed himself in T-shirt and together with 10 of his staff turned waiters, albeit for a good cause. They served a variety of food and prepared drinks to the disabled and bringing them joy via ang pows, mandarin oranges, decorating the centre and cleaning up the place at the end of the function.

BKP’s latest project is the Verve Suites, an 881-unit fully-furnished and serviced- suites in the high-end Mont’Kiara neighbourhood. Continuing its tradition of offering niche and innovative products to complement the lifestyles of homebuyers, BKP through Verve Suites, introduced the unique sky lounge, named Vertigo Lounge. It spans 6,000 square feet and perches on the 35th floor of the penthouse of Block Viva. Verve Suites was 70% sold within four months without the aid of any advertisements.

BKP’s maiden project was Aman Kiara, an exclusive gated and guarded precinct of 19 bungalows and 12 duplex condovillas. Launched in 2002, it was fully sold and completed 9 months ahead of schedule.

Hijauan Kiara was the second project, a luxurious spa-themed condominium development. Hijauan Kiara introduced exclusive features such as a layout with a maximum of 2 units on each floor, private lift lobbies, sunken baths and a spa island. More than 90% of the units are sold, with only the bumiputra units remaining. Hijauan Kiara is expected to be completed by end 2007. Both Aman Kiara and Hijauan Kiara are also located in Mont’Kiara.
