Jom tanam padi kat 1Utama

First of all, let me wish Happy Merdeka to Malaysia! Twitters are going crazy ‘hearting’ their hearts out with the hashtag iheartmalaysia. So cool you know to see twitters come united like that! Awesome! #iheartmalaysia :P
Back to topic…
They did a great job last year bringing in a fishing village into my second home. See the pictures here. This year, 1 Utama is transformed into a paddy field for Hari Raya.
Scarecrow… First time seeing a real scarecrow up close and personal :D
What is this called? Gosh.. malu~ler gua. Simple things like this I don’t know.. :(
Real paddy with leeches leh!
 This year’s paddy field
last year’s fishing village
 Overall, I prefered last year’s fishing village with real sand and sea shells.
The design of this theme is such that it is inconvenient for us shoppers with kids. We can’t bring the strollers up there and it is way too crowded with just some narrow lanes to walk on. It’s nice to see but definitely not a place to walk on.. 
But thumbs up for the effort done this year 1U. Keep up the good job :D

    Just came back from 1U just now. I don't quite like the decor. Find the paddy area messy. But quite a good concept. Especially for urban folks who have never seen a paddy field.
