The year-end festive holiday season is one of the best times to visit the malls and get into the holiday spirit. Christmas is a time for joy and cheer and shopping malls all over Malaysia have been decked out to the nines all vying for that “wow” factor. From traditional green and red décor to a futuristic winter wonderland, they offer a visual feast that lifts the spirit. So go treat yourself to some festive cheer!
Here’s a preview of the décor at a few major shopping malls in the Klang Valley.
1 Berjaya Times Square, Jalan Imbi Kuala Lumpur
Themed “Magnificent Luminaire – Sculpture of Lights”, Berjaya Times Square is celebrating the festive season with a magnificent display of light sculptures including Christmas trees. The main feature of the display is the massive halo curtains or chandeliers of gold highlighted by sparkling giant red and gold baubles. The twinkling wonderland is the perfect setting for a festive selfie.
2 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Bandar Utama, Petaling Jaya
1 Utama’s “A Glistening Christmas” décor looks like a sci-fi movie set with it its striking giant holographic crystal globes. It is quite a futuristic take on Christmas mall décor. On the ground floor of the centre court are five pop-up PlayRooms where one can experience art mediums and installations that will ignite your senses and imagination.
3 The Gardens Mall, Mid Valley, Kuala Lumpur
Relive your childhood and be captivated by the delightful décor of The Gardens, Mid Valley. Themed “Let Your Heart be Light” and inspired by imagery found in children’s fables and fairy tales, the ground floor of the mall has been transformed into an enchanted garden of festive green and red hanging laurels.
4 Mid Valley Megamall, Kuala Lumpur
Mid Valley Megamall has turned its Centre Court into a Christmas Circus carnival! The main stage with its red and white circus tent top is flanked by Christmas trees and candy-cane coloured stalls while Nutcracker soldiers and “circus performers” in the form of sculptured figures put on their “acts” at random spots.
5 Sunway Pyramid, Bandar Sunway, Selangor
Stop by at Sunway Pyramid for a “Jolly Rainbow Christmas Fun Factory” and be dazzled by the cute and chubby unicorns with rainbows flowing out of them; yes, we are in fantasy land. Kids can try the Rainbow Slide where Christmas characters such as Santa Claus come to life at the Unicorns Alive dome. There is also the Rainbow Memory Lane photo booth where you can show off your best pose.
