With a new year comes new opportunities! Sunway Malls reunited to celebrate the coming Lunar New Year at Sunway Putra Mall in grand fashion. With the festive season coming to full swing, each Sunway mall is decked out in extraordinary Lunar New Year fashion.
Each mall has their unique take on this year’s festivities with the unifying theme of celebrating traditions. From pinwheels to an homage to a water canal town, Sunway Malls will be the highlight of your shopping destination this season!
“In many ways, the coming together to celebrate the festive season has always been Sunway Malls’ hallmark, as we embark to expand our footprint in key urbane markets.
We are fortunate too that Sunway Malls has grown from a single mall operation to five-mall operation which enabled us to reach wider and further,” said HC Chan, Chief Executive Officer of Sunway Malls and Theme Parks.
In the spirit of the festive season, children from Yayasan Sunbeams Home and Yayasan Chow Kit (YCK) were invited to join the Lunar New Year Launch. They were brought to Funscape by Cobay for a game session, followed by a shopping spree at Good2U as they sponsored a set of clothing for all the underprivileged children.
The celebration began with a Lion Dance performance that marched into the Main Concourse with the VIPs in lieu. It continued with Golden Drums performance led by 15 drummers from Sunway University. Representatives from Sunway Malls; HC Chan, CEO of Sunway Malls & Theme Parks; Kevin Tan, COO of Sunway Malls; KS Wong, Senior General Manager of Sunway Velocity Mall; Phang Sau Lian, General Manager of Sunway Putra Mall; Chow Heng Wah, General Manager of Sunway Carnival Mall, and Albert Cheok, Centre Manager of Sunway Giza were invited to the stage to officiate the event together.
The event kick-started as the storyteller unveiled five captivating stories, depicting each of Sunway Malls and the VIPs revealing specially made miniatures that symbolises the traditional elements of each mall. For a stunning finale, a synchronized strike of the last beat of the drums became the cue for the Chinese Opera performance to signal the end the event.
Not forgetting to embark on an act of kindness this festive season, Sunway Malls is an advocate of charitable causes hence encourages the malls and their community to give to those in need. For this Lunar New Year, Sunway Malls is focusing on lesser fortunate families as it is a time for reunion and to celebrate.
Although celebrating as one in the launch, each mall under the Sunway Malls brand have different themes of celebration to capture the different markets they cater to.
