SPRING is in full swing at Sunway Pyramid as the mall is decorated to the nines in the colours of the Lunar New Year.

Celebrating “The Merriment of Spring”, the mall drew inspiration from the water town of Zhou-zhuang in China’s Jiangsu province and created its own version at LG2 Orange Concourse, along with cherry blossoms and willows.

Shoppers, who are welcome into the heart of the attractions through an oriental arch flanked by two imperial guardian lions, will be tempted to take as many pictures as possible in the area, especially on the bridge overlooking a “river”.

Adding to the festive mood are also Chinese New Year elements with splashes of red filling the concourse, such as lanterns, fabrics and spring couplets.

An interactive photo booth has been set up, featuring a traditional tea house where shoppers can take photos and save the print for keeps.

“With the rebranding of Sunway City last year, Sunway Malls have become more vibrant than ever.

“Visitors to the mall continue to increase year-on-year and we foresee greater opportunities to create a unique experience for each person,” said Sunway Malls chief operating officer Kevin Tan.

Beyond the decorations, shoppers can visit stalls selling traditional candies, Chinese calligraphy, fresh flowers and traditional costumes.

There will also be a Spring Flower Market at LG2 Orange Avenue until Feb 14.

Visitors can catch lion dance performances every Saturday throughout the mall’s festive celebration, which take place until Feb 18.

Shoppers can sign up for Chinese calligraphy and Chinese water brush painting workshops.

They can also get their hands on the “All Season Prosperity” ang pow packets and reunion dining sets.

With RM800 and above spent in three receipts (or RM700 for HSBC credit cardholders), shoppers can redeem the dining set, while those who spend RM300 or more in two receipts (or RM200 for HSBC credit cardholders) can get the ang pow packets.

The redemption activity will benefit the underprivileged, as Sunway Malls will contribute RM5 for charity with every redemption made.
