KUCHING: The Spring shopping mall hopes to dazzle this Chinese New Year with the crimson red decorations of “A Thousand Lanterns”.
Guests entering the mall are greeted by flocks of friendly fluffy sheep, while children will have a good time taking pictures.
Accompanied by auspicious cherry blossom chandeliers, the grand oak tree at the South Court has been transformed from a winter wonderland to a lively Spring paradise.
Kuching city south mayor Datuk James Chan launched the Chinese New Year celebration last week with a lavish tossing of salmon yee sang hosted by the Spring management and sponsored by Sakae Sushi.
A special lion dance performance by The Chinese Martial Art Association Kuching and 24 Festive Drums by Chung Hua Middle School No. 1 brought a thundering surprise as visitors crowded to see the amazing display.
The Chinese New Year Bazaar returns at the South Court from 10am to 10pm daily from Feb 17. Shoppers can expect favourite delicacies like jerky (bak gua), cookies, tit bits and many other goodies at New Eastern Trading, Cheng Hong Coldstorage, Wide Way Food Enterprise, Mandy Trading, Ee Wan Trading, The Gingerbread House, Old Street Enterprise, Taka Cake House, Easyrich Circle, John’s Pie and Mio Gelato. Also present is Astro with its promotional deals.

“I hope you all will make this shopping mall a place that will unite us all with one purpose during this prosperous and joyous season and let us not forget to be kind to one another,” said the mayor.
