One last look..

As we usher the year of the Tiger, let’s recap what has been going around town to set the mood for this year’s Chinese New Year.

At #1 will definitely be my second home – 1 Utama. Applause, applause! :D

I caught the Flying Lion in action. When the Lion managed to climb to the top, I was moved to tears! That was how touching it was to watch that kind of accomplishment.
This was how high the pole! Now you know why I was in awe! 1 Utama rocks!

#2 Mid Valley Megamall

The Centre Court of the mall has been transformed into a blossoming lotus garden amidst enormous red lotus leaves to represent luck and wealth.

# 3 The Curve

And the ‘consolation winners’ (in no particular order)

Sunway Pyramid

Managed to catch Melodies of the East.. Soothing CNY tunes..

The Gardens, Mid Valley
And then there’s Sunway Giza that I’ve not blogged about. Nothing much.. just these..

What I like about Giza are these enormous fans! They are really huge.. you have just got to go there to check it out! But they have nothing to do with the Chinese New Year decor~lah. They are a permanent fixture there :D

Of course there are other shopping malls such as Pavillion, KLCC, Berjaya Times Square and more but I’m a PJ gal and KL is like… aiyo..

I believe many are already on the way back to hometown by now. Drive safe and Happy Chinese New Year to everyone :)

    Wow you went shop-hopping and thanks for sharing the colorful scenes of various shopping centres. About the Lion dance, nowadays to earn a living is so competitive. Imagine carrying the Lion's head itself is heavy and its a challenge to climb that height, phew. Cari makan is real susah.Have a great Happy CNY.

    Your second home is a bit complicated for me. Everytime, i go there i will miss into the jungle. compare 3 of the mall decoration, 1 Utama is the best!Have a safe journey to south!Gong Xi fa cai and ang pao mari!

    So 1U best for you? OK lah not bad, I just don't fancy those cats. Maybe tigers better, haha!Almost went to see the lion dance in 1U that day, but could not make it! Damn! Yalah, the Giza's CNY deco nothing much. And Sunway Pyramid I didn't visit. After last year's horribly lousy Xmas deco, don't feel like visiting it, haha.
