Can’t be KL Foodie without talking about food a little bit. Christmas buffets are a great way to bring your friends and family together.

Lastly, all the desserts such as bread pudding, and gingerbread man! Treat yourself to a wondrous feast at fancy hotels such as ALoft Kuala Lumpur Sentral, Intercontinental Hotel, and Hilton Kuala Lumpur.
7. Watch A Christmas Movie
Nothing kick starts the Christmas spirit quite like a Christmas movie! Choose between GSC, TGV, and MBO! The Grinch is now showing. However, we are not so sure about how a movie about stealing Christmas will make you feel about Christmas. Apart from that, you can watch other Christmas movies on Netflix! Tune into the iconic How The Grinch Stole Christmas, Home Alone, Dear Santa, and many more! These films will surely put you in the best mood.
8. Do A Generous Act
