Wind of Blessings @ Sunway Putra Mall

Wind of Blessings @ Sunway Putra Mall

Sunway Putra Mall’s Lunar New Year is themed ‘Wind of Blessings’. The mall is transformed into a mandarin orange garden adorned with colorful pinwheels, majestic lanterns and a traditional pagoda. In Chinese folklore, the pinwheel known as “Feng Che” is a traditional toy to turn one's luck around or turn obstacles into opportunities when it begins to spin with the wind and they have become quite elaborate and are used during the Lunar New Year.

You can take a stroll in the garden, feast their eyes on the green landscape and enjoy the gentle scent of citrus along the pathway. There is also a rustic wooden bridge over a man-made pond surrounded with mandarin orange trees that is perfect for a photo opportunity.

Wish upon the Tree of Blessings for a special someone and the mall will grant selected wishes. It is believed that the higher the joss paper is dangled on the tree, the higher the chance of your wishes to come true. Also, look out for festive essentials at the Spring Bazaar and the Flower Market for some fresh and colourful blooms.

The Merriment of Spring @ Sunway Pyramid

At Sunway Pyramid, the theme is ‘The Merriment of Spring’. Inspired by Zhouzhuang, a water town in China known for its canals, the LG2 Orange Concourse is decorated with cherry blossoms and willows. An oriental arch towers over the entrance of the concourse which is flanked by two imperial guardian lions (also known as foo lions). A river flows in between the area too! Take photos as you stand on top of a bridge while the river flowing underneath. Spot classic Lunar New Year elements such as red lanterns, red cloths and spring couplets fill the concourse.

In Chinese culture, a circle represents unity which is one of the elements of the Lunar New Year setup at Sunway Pyramid. When you stop by the mall, try to spot the circle somewhere at the centre of the concourse.

Take a walk up the main bridge pagoda for a stroll through its main theme of lanterns and to enjoy the view of the largest indoor flower market. Take in the breathtaking fragrance of the fresh flowers and plants in this indoor setting meant to tantalize your sense of sight, smell and touch.

On ground, pagoda-like booths encase the Chinese New Year offerings, such as cheongsams, accessories, hampers and CNY cookies. Infused with all the olden charm is a mix of the neo-futuristic with LED cherry blossom trees, an enchanting sight amongst the traditional Chinese courtyard.
