Take a step back in time and be immersed in the warm and welcoming ambience of an ancient Chinese tea village this Chinese New Year at Suria KLCC and Alamanda Shopping Centre. A sweeping two-storey traditional house surrounded by classic shops and beautiful hanging red lanterns as a nod to yesteryears is set to mesmerise shoppers and visitors alike.
Present at the Chinese New Year launch event included the management of Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd, Andrew Brien, Executive Director/ Chief Executive Officer; Francis Tan, Chief Operating Officer; Ben Chong, General Manager of Suria KLCC and Edmund Lim and Yap Sook Yee, co-founders of We Care Journey Association.
Inspired by the spirit of the festivities, this year’s mall décor marries both tradition and elegance, creating perfect photo opportunities for all. Colourful tea plantation displays with a 20-ft plum blossom wishing tree, dotted with 1,000 hanging red and gold ribbons are the embodiment of style and perfection.
The grand display is perfectly complemented with a tea drinking appreciation showcase at all the main entrances of Suria KLCC to signify the essence of the celebration; uniting family members on Chinese New Year.
Besides bringing families together, this Chinese New Year is an essential time to unite Malaysians irrespective of religion, creed and background. Once again, Suria KLCC has constructed the tallest Chinese lantern at the Esplanade KLCC. This majestic structure is 22 metres in height and 12 metres in width certified by The Malaysia Book of Records. Visitors can snap pictures with this eye-catching structure until 22 February.
