A FESTIVE mood prevails at Sunway Carnival Mall with its upper ground concourse bedecked with Chinese New Year decor.

The eye-catching red lanterns, plum blossoms and red drapes lent a touch of nostalgia against the urban decor of the mall in Seberang Jaya.

Its general manager Chow Heng Wah said the theme was ‘bu bu gao sheng’ which means ‘making steady progress’.

“The decoration reflects how textile and fabrics have evolved over the years and eventually shaped the Chinese culture,” he said during the launch of the mall’s festive celebration recently.

From now until March 8, the mall will hold various activities including Chinese orchestra, tanghulu (traditional Chinese candied fruit), ding ding candy and mystical mask performances.

“On Saturday and Sunday, there will be a traditional Chinese costume performance, calligraphy, magic show and a fashion show,” its marketing manager Sharley Ooi said.

She added that they would also visit Rumah Sejahtera Permatang Tinggi on March 2 to share the festive joy with the residents there.

Shoppers can also redeem limited edition fabric-designed red packets or exclusive fabric coasters set under the Lucky Largesse Redemption when they spend a certain amount at the mall during this period.
