Despite a more subdued Chinese New Year ambience this year, the Curve is ringing in the Year of the Ox with a trip down memory lane, with its nostalgic Treasures of Yesteryears theme that was inspired by iconic scenes of 1960s Kuala Lumpur Chinatown.
Commemorating this auspicious time of year, the Curve is recreating the festive ambiance of the 1960s era from January 9 to February 14, 2021.
Visitors with essential shopping or F&B takeaway at the Curve can relive memories of yesteryears as they step through the intricate Chinese archway at the Centre Court. A feature point of the Centre Court’s Chinese New Year decor is the traditional lantern-lit bridge inspired by heritage lane “Kwai Chai Hong”.
Reminiscent of a time when people would flock to Chinatown to usher in the Lunar New Year, patrons can enjoy the nostalgia-themed experience, complete with artistic street murals, and cherry blossoms and bamboo plants completing the décor.
Senior General Manager of the Curve, Jazmi Kamarudin, commented, “In view of the MCO 2.0, the Curve has made adjustments to our Chinese New Year campaign for the sake of curbing the spread of the coronavirus that continues to impact Malaysians. We are still doing our part to celebrate with our thematic festive décor that will greet visitors to the Curve. However, we will no longer have the much-anticipated festive musical performance and lion dance.”
“Our décor this year celebrates the history and festive ambiance of the 1960s-style celebration of this auspicious occasion. We hope this distinctive setting, infused with the unique vibes of Chinatown from years gone by will inspire our patrons to look forward to new beginnings, and remain optimistic that there are brighter days ahead.”
Jazmi further added, “To ensure the safety of all those at the mall, the Curve management continues to implement strict SOP during this time. The public can also rest assured the mall is cleaned and surface disinfected several times a day. We ask that all patrons on our premises observe the SOP, shop responsibly and stay safe.”
In addition to essential services and F&B outlets providing takeaway and delivery, other outlets that have received approval to remain open at the Curve during MCO 2.0 include laundry services, books and stationery outlets, furniture and jewelry outlets.
As an added treat, patrons who spend a minimum of RM388 in a maximum of two receipts will be able to redeem an Auspicious Ceramic Bowl. Available in five vibrant colours, patrons are encouraged to start shopping now to bring home the full set of the Auspicious Ceramic Bowl! Meanwhile, those who spend a minimum of RM188 in a maximum of two receipts will be eligible to redeem Huat-Huat Angpow packets. All redemptions are subject to terms and conditions and while stocks last.
