The mall created a platform to promote Malaysian-Chinese culture by organizing Sunway Putra Mall’s first ever Lantern Parade, as well as a ‘reunion’ to promote racial harmony.

Shortly before the parade starts, the 100 children from the charity homes were treated to hone their artistic skills on mooncake and lantern making workshop followed by a dinner treat at Manhattan Fish Market. The children, age ranging between 7 to 12 years old, could not contain their excitement when they arrive at Selera Street, as they were about to start making their own crafts to celebrate the Mid-Autumn festive and for some, it’s their first time.

The founder of Touching Lives Club, Mr Raymond Chin was glad that the initiative to gather public and other races together as one came to reality. ‘This Mid- Autumn festival is the second biggest celebration for the Chinese. On this day, the moon is fuller and brighter and stands as a symbol of harmony and unity. We love this festive as much as the others. It resembles very much of who we are. A community who looks forward to building up community spirit and racial harmony” said Chin.
