SEREMBAN: People have been making a beeline to experience the magic of Christmas at Santa Claus’ “factory” at the d’Tempat Country Club here where they also got to see snowfall.

At the “fairyland” located in Bandar Seri Sendayan near here, multiracial visitors get to indulge in many fun activities associated with the year-end festival.

Couple Yap Woon How, 35, and Hein Kee Yee, 31, drove all the way from Cheras with their 18-month-old daughter Bei Ying to see for themselves what Santa’s factory was all about.

“We have a better understanding of what Christmas is all about now and the festivities associated with it,” said Yap who said it was a great feeling to personally experience snowfall.

Hein said the decorative lights, Christmas trees and a huge Santa sleigh complete with reindeers put up to mark the occasion truly gave it a feeling of Christmas.

“We also enjoyed being in the giant snow globe, and skating in the rink and the merry-go-round rides,” she said.

Club owners Matrix Concepts Holdings managing director Datuk Lee Tian Hock said the “fairlyland” will be open for the whole of this month to allow as many people as possible to celebrate the event.

“We sincerely hope that more people would come and join in the fun,” he said.

In Santa Claus mythology, the factory, or sometimes referred to as Santa’s workshop, is a huge area located in the North Pole where he makes toys and presents given out during Christmas.

In addition to the factory, Santa lives there with his wife, companions and all of his famous reindeers.

Lee said special booths have also been put up to allow visitors to learn ways to make Christmas socks, macaroons and ginger bread decorations, greeting cards and Plushie keychains, beading, bottle and jar painting, sand art as well as pop corn and candy floss.

Visitors are also entertained by fire eaters, light stilt walkers, dance performances, Christmas carolling, a magic show and can witness a grand fireworks display.

Neighbours Normaya Jamal, 33, and Siti Zubaidah Tamimi, 32, who live in the area brought their children to join in the fun.

“The decorations are so beautiful. As Malaysians, we are blessed to be able to celebrate major festivals with our multiracial friends,” said Normaya.
