Sunway Malls Celebrates Tradition To Usher In The New Year

by - January 23, 2018

In welcoming the auspicious Chinese New Year and to immerse in the traditional Chinese culture Sunway Putra Mall is decked with auspicious decorations, this year theme is ‘Wind of Blessings’. The mall is transformed into a mandarin orange garden adorned with colorful pinwheels, majestic lanterns and a traditional pagoda. In Chinese folklore, the pinwheel known as “Feng Che” is a traditional toy to turn one's luck around or turn obstacles into opportunities when it begins to spin with the wind and they have become quite elaborate and are used during the Lunar New Year.

Take a stroll in the garden, feast your eyes on the green landscape and enjoy the gentle scent of citrus along the pathway. There is also a rustic wooden bridge over a man-made pond surrounded with mandarin orange trees, that is perfect for a photo opportunity. A complimentary photo booth area is also available throughout the period for public to take as many pictures as they wish.

Wish upon the Tree of Blessings for a special someone and the mall will grant selected wishes. It is believed that the higher the joss paper is dangled on the tree, the higher the chance of your wishes to come true. Also, look out for festive essentials at the Spring Bazaar and the Flower Market for some fresh and colorful blooms.

The celebration began with a Lion Dance performance that marched into the Main Concourse with the VIPs in lieu. It continued with Golden Drums performance led by 15 drummers from Sunway University. Representatives from Sunway Malls; HC Chan, CEO of Sunway Malls & Theme Parks; Kevin Tan, COO of Sunway Malls; KS Wong, Senior General Manager of Sunway Velocity Mall; Phang Sau Lian, General Manager of Sunway Putra Mall; Chow Heng Wah, General Manager of Sunway Carnival Mall, and Albert Cheok, Centre Manager of Sunway Giza were invited to the stage to officiate the event together.
