Embodying the bravery, power and determination of the tiger, Pavilion REIT Malls flaunts bold and vibrant festive decoration across its shopping destinations this Chinese New Year. Showcasing the traditional Chinese art of paper cutting, Pavilion Kuala Lumpur welcomes the new year with “Blooms of Prosperity”.
In collaboration with award-winning international modern origami artist Master Chen Xiao, the intricacy and beauty of paper art is elaborately showcased through a 9m-tall Pavilion Paper Art Garden.
The garden features the harmony of the five elements — Metal, Wood, Water, Fire and Earth — in a four seasons setting.
Taking centre stage is a Gold Mountain and a mighty Yellow Tiger, while Chinese lanterns and lush flowers and trees surround the garden and Spanish steps.
The mall in Bukit Bintang has also collaborated with Tiger Beer to create a “Roar Together” art installation at the main entrance.
Pavilion Kuala Lumpur Retail chief executive officer Datuk Joyce Yap said the tiger symbolised strength, tenacity and bravery, which were much-needed qualities in 2022.
“Following the Year of the Ox, we need another strong and powerful animal to help us combat the mutated Covid-19 virus.
“In the spirit of new beginnings, Pavilion REIT, WCT Holdings Bhd and Malton Bhd have jointly donated RM2mil to Selangor government, Malaysian Red Crescent Society and Mercy Malaysia in aid of flood victims as they rebuild their lives,” she said at the launch of Chinese New Year celebrations at Pavilion Kuala Lumpur.
In partnership with luxury brand Dior, the mall has also opened a Dior pop-up store on Level 3 for some festive indulgence.
Themed “The Enlightened Blooming Garden” featuring a majestic crouching tiger amid a garden of red blooms, the pop-up store houses Dior’s exclusive Chinese New Year 2022 collection.
Over at Da Men USJ mall in Subang Jaya, Selangor, a lush flower garden featuring beautiful wisteria and auspicious red lanterns themed “Blossoming Harmony” is meant to symbolise vitality and good fortune for the year ahead.
On hand to greet shoppers all around the mall are cheerful youths who represent a “Muhibbah Malaysia”.
On the lower ground and ground floors, one will find the Roaring Bazaar, where local entrepreneurs sell decorations, handicrafts and snacks, in full swing until Jan 30.
A series of traditional and modern performances have been lined up on weekends throughout the festive period.
