1UTAMA Shopping Centre is putting a spin on the traditional meaning of Christmas this year.

Themed “Christmas is Here”, the mall has been transformed into a poinsettia floral garden, decked in vivid colours of red, white and green.

Enter it and be surrounded by 6.1m tall poinsettias that will make you feel like you are in a fantasy world.

The concept further centres around structures up to 10.6m tall, depicting icicles hanging from spider webs and decorated with baubles of different sizes and shapes.

This is to reflect the picturesque view of crystal-clear formations during winter, when dew that forms on webs freezes into crystal balls or frost.

On closer inspection, you will also find two huge white spiders descending from these structures, “busy” creating these crystal ball trees.

1 Utama Shopping Centre general manager Patrick So revealed that they drew inspiration from a picture that captured a spider spinning its web during winter.

“The approach we had was based on an environmental aspect.

“Of course, Christmas is all about having family members coming together, but we want to send the message out that we should also be thankful and appreciative of nature’s beauty and its unique creations,” he explained.

To spread the festive cheer, 1 Utama Shopping Centre is rewarding its shoppers with attractive redemptions including cushions, children’s cutlery sets, fruit trays, ONECARD shopping vouchers and Le Creuset mini round cocotte, which is exclusively for the first 250 ONECARD members.

There are Christmas shows like musicals, marching band, choirs and dance performances on selected dates and time for shoppers to enjoy.

The idea is to pick up a Christmas redemption card and collect as many stamps as possible to redeem these items at Ground Floor Highstreet, located opposite the Customer Service Centre.

Just spend RM200 in two receipts combined on the same day at any ONECARD store to receive one stamp and a glass drinking bottle, limited to 500 units daily.

Maybank cardholders stand a chance to get a pair of dessert plates with a minimum purchase of RM300 or a crystal fruit tray if they spend RM800 and above when they purchase with Maybank MasterCard, Visa or American Express and Maybank Charge Cards.

Additionally, there are Christmas shows like musicals, a marching band, choirs and dance performances on selected dates and time.
