Hope everyone is having a ‘Goat’ time celebrating Chinese New Year (CNY) with your loved ones and having a great time feasting on CNY fare and cookies.
It must be a breeze for KLites driving around town since most have left the city for the celebration. It’s also the best time to visit the malls to look at the décor put up.
Over at Mid Valley Megamall, the Centre Court is transformed into a traditional village to give shoppers a glimpse of the ordinary people’s lives in the old China.
Red cloths and lanterns are hung inside the village symbolizing good luck and fortune and perhaps also to ward off evil spirits.
As this is the Year of the Goat, these cute adorable fluffy animals made their presence felt in the village.
Spring flowers and cherry blossom trees are ‘Blooming in Abundance’ attracting shoppers’ attention to bring them home to brighten up the homes.
Red is the main theme for Suria KLCC decoration from its lanterns to the drum and carpet.
The decoration this year is rather simple with drums and lanterns the main items used.
In line with its theme ‘羊年吉利，鼓乐报喜’ there is a big drum in the center of a small stage with this year’s zodiac animal printed on it.
Shoppers are greeted with ‘Peak of Prosperity’ at Pavilion as they stepped into the Floral Garden of Prosperity.
The Centre Court is transformed into a sea of red with huge red lanterns hanging from the high ceiling, flowers in full bloom and thousands of LED lit peonies leading to the magnificent Golden Goat.
This 30-foot tall Golden Goat is the highlight of this year decoration which symbolizes good fortune and prosperity. Two other smaller golden goats also stand proudly on the stage making it ‘三羊开泰’ which signifies that prosperity will begin with the advent of spring.
There is even a ‘Love Seat’ in the Centre Court for singles or even couples looking for romance. This seat was probably very ‘hot’ on Valentine’s Day and maybe on Chap Goh Mei too!
Last, but not least, here’s wishing everyone Lots of Luck, Wealth in Abundance, Never ending Happiness & Plenty of Smiles in the Year of the Goat.
