Cultural magnificence at Penang mall


Gurney Plaza in Penang unveils its special “Mekar Raya Aidilfitri” for its shoppers and visitors.

AS the blessed month of Raya dawns upon communities from all walks of life, Gurney Plaza in Penang emerges as a symbol of cultural magnificence, announcing the arrival of "Mekar Raya Aidilfitri."

This celebration is a reflection of the profound beauty of Malaysian heritage, intricately intertwined with the timeless traditions of Aidilfitri, promising an unparalleled experience of elegance and joy.

Gurney Plaza, a nine-storey shopping complex, is strategically located along the Gurney Drive promenade in Penang, and sits approximately three kilometres northwest of Georgetown, Penang’s capital. It offers a diverse array of renowned brands for shopping, dining and entertainment.

This year, it is Gurney Plaza’s pleasure to welcome you to the premier lifestyle shopping mall through the resplendent theme of "Bunga Raya" as its ethereal beauty blossoms throughout the festivities. From the majestic Bunga Raya, symbolising the nation's pride, to the delicate allure of ketupat and the soft glow of Pelita Raya, the centre atrium of Gurney Plaza is adorned with the essence of Malaysian culture.

Wander through the enchanting Hibiscus Garden, where the vibrant hues of nature intertwine with the melody of tradition, while the rhythmic dance of the Crescent Moon, adorned with Raya motifs, casts a celestial glow upon the festivities.

As the sun sets and Gurney Plaza awakens to the magic of Raya, its grand stage becomes the epitome of grandeur, adorned with a magnificent Bunga Raya centrepiece that gleams with the radiance of a thousand stars. Illuminated by the soft glow of Pelita oil lamps and ornate bulbs, this masterpiece serves as a guiding light of unity, beckoning one and all to embrace the spirit of togetherness and celebration.

Join the one-stop shopping and entertainment destination in contributing to a noble cause by donating food items, supporting "Saving Food Feeding Lives" charity drive initiated for Mutiara Food Bank whereby shoppers can donate food items to those in need from now until April 21. Simply drop off your donations at the designated Donation Centre near its Info Counter at the ground floor, according to the wish list provided.

Additionally, discover the vibrant Raya-themed art and craft market by Greentopia (April 5 to 21), where art enthusiasts can indulge in a treasure trove of creative expressions. There will be an “Eye on the Tiger” photographic exhibition from April 15 to 21, which is The Habitat Foundation Tiger and Wildlife Conservation initiatives exhibition. In addition, there are fun educational games for its visitors, with prizes to be won.
