PHOTO GALLERY: Hotels light up with hearts in a show of solidarity to frontliners

KUALA LUMPUR (March 27):  It is truly a heart-warming sight in these challenging times as the world battles the escalating COVID-19 outbreak.

Several hotels in Malaysia have 'lighted-up' to show solidarity and appreciation to the frontliners who are working tirelessly to contain the virus.

The inspiring light spectacles are achieved by turning on the lights at selected rooms and floors in the hotels after sundown, thus creating a giant glowing heart on the facade of the buildings.

"As the situation surrounding COVID-19 evolves, let us take a moment to celebrate the frontliners of Malaysia who continue to offer their services in the face of adversity.

"Thank you to the unsung heroes of this nation - health care workers, scientists, cleaners, cashiers and employees in grocery stores, drivers, delivery men, journalists, and countless others," said The Gardens Hotel and Residences on its Facebook page, accompanied by a picture of its hotel facade sporting a big red lighted heart.

"Let's bring light to the darkness, and hope to the world," said Riverside Majestic Hotel Kuching in its official Facebook page. Other hotels who have followed suit include Intercontinental Kuala Lumpur, Invito Hotel & Residences KL and VE Hotel & [email protected] Bangsar South.

The feat can also be seen in other parts of the world with homes and iconic buildings putting up their own dazzling light shows in support of healthcare workers and other frontliners.
