Every year, the festive ambience and specially curated Chinese New Year (CNY) decorations are one of the crowd pullers to shopping malls. Against the often “wow” deck-outs, many wouldn’t miss the opportunity to inscribe some all-smiles moments into our phone cameras with our loved ones while out for our new year shopping or reunion dinners.
This year, however, the infectious coronavirus which has triggered the re-implementation of the Movement Control Order (MCO 2.0) nationwide, except in Sarawak, may have restricted our freedom to enjoy the mood at the malls but the festive spirit to welcome the year of Ox shouldn’t be put off by the pandemic.
Undeniably, shopping centres have become quieter with fewer shoppers compared to previous years. Undaunted though, the malls have still decorated their centre courts with lunar new year themes to bring joy to shoppers.
Yes, it is still advisable for us to stay home to contribute our parts in flattening the Covid-19 curve, and pray that the MCO will end soon so we could go for some retail therapy again.
For some remote viewing of the CNY decorations, EdgeProp.my has visited some of the popular malls to capture the festive joy to share with all you readers through our digital platforms. Stay safe and check them out!
