I wish you a smooth sailing journey in your life and everything you do, may you prosperous in 2013. A Chinese junk is a symbol of wealth because it is a mode of transportation that carries goods for trading and explores a world of possibilities.

Sha Chuan, a Chinese junk docks at Fortune Harbour brings all shoppers back to the 1870s during the golden ages of modern Chinese when goods were transported via water route in business transactions between merchants and traders. The junk in fact has a history that is dated back in 770 to 446 BC, during the Spring and Autumn Period where the 40 feet tall and 40 feet wide Chinese junk made from solid wood originated from the Jiangsu Province. Through the tide of time, the Sha Chuan has earned its many names, first as a sand-proof flat-bottom ship during the Song Dynasty, a flat-bottom ship in the Yuan Dynasty and finally the ‘sand ship’ during the Ming Dynasty.


For this Chinese New Year 2013 Wind of Fortune at Sunway Pyramid officiated by Dato’ Ngeow Voon Yean, Managing Director of Sunway Group – Property Investment Division, accompanied by HC Chan, Chief Executive Officer of Sunway Shopping Malls and Kevin Tan, Chief Operating Officer of Sunway Shopping Malls entered the Fortune Harbour and walked towards the jetty leading to the Sha Chuan where the Chinese New Year celebration was launched.
