Where tradition meets technology

FAMILIES had a good time bonding over cultural activities at SP Setia Bhd’s Chinese New Year open house in Penang.

Held at the Setia Welcome Centre in SPICE, Bayan Baru, the event also had free arts and craft workshops where the visitors learned to paint tea cups, shape figurines or do beadwork.

Many parents were seen lending their children a helping hand with the delicate tasks, while others took on the challenge themselves and left with nifty souvenirs.

Several rabbit and God of Prosperity mascots made their rounds to distribute “gold coins” and pose for photos while musicians played the guzheng and erhu on the main stage.

There were also stage games and several thematic dance performances during the event, which was themed “May Past Blessings Continue to Grace Life’s Rich Tapestry”.

The highlight was an LED lion dance performance, combining tradition with technology.

The attention-grabbing showcase saw the troupe prance atop a set of illuminated obstacles.

“We wanted to create a festive occasion for everyone to get together and celebrate again,” said SP Setia Bhd Property North deputy general manager Sherman Kam Hock Leong.

“The water rabbit is expected to be a good year and we hope this spreads auspiciousness to all,” he added.

The company also showcased its first affordable home development in Penang, which is the Setia Miracca in Bayan Lepas.

With a gross development value (GDV) of RM236mil, it sits on a 1.05ha parcel just a stone’s throw away from the Penang International Airport.

It is a low-density affordable home project with only 480 units.

Units come in two layouts of 83.6sq m and 92.9sq m with balconies offering pleasant views of the airport, hills or sea. There are two facility floors at level 10 and on the rooftop.

“The project features a post-pandemic design with pocket gardens staggered throughout its 35-storey block to give people open spaces for relaxation.

“Registration is now open and sales launch is targeted for mid-2023,” said Kam, adding that a show unit is also ready for viewing.

Among the company’s other offerings in Penang are the Spanish-inspired semi-detached houses of Casa Rica, located at the Setia Greens development in Sungai Ara. Completion is expected by end of this year.

The luxurious Setia V Residences in Gurney Drive, Setia Sky Ville in Jelutong and Setia Sky Vista in Relau are completed and ready for move-in.

The festive event ended with an LED diabolo routine and fireworks display. Also present were SP Setia Bhd executive vice-president Datuk Zaini Yusoff and divisional general manager Ricky Yeoh.

Besides Penang, the company also held CNY open houses in 18 other locations across the Klang Valley, Johor and Sabah.
