Christmas Decor: 1 Utama Shopping Centre

My jaw dropped to the ground when I saw One Utama’s Christmas decor this year. Themed “A Rustic Woodland Christmas – Love & Joy” I was just speechless. Maybe I can share some pictures and you tell me what you see.

And then I saw their Christmas tree and I just can’t take it any more. I left.

I think it is better to check out other mall’s decor. Let’s start with Sunway Pyramid’s Christmas decor here.

    haven’t check out the mall myself.

      Dont bother to check this out. Proceed to other malls such as The Curve, Sunway Pyramid and of course Pavilion. Surprisingly even KLCC did a much greater job this year. KLCC at night is so superbly stunning at the water fountain area.

    Hello Merryn! When I saw the pics that you posted, the 1st thing that came into my mind is the limited budget that they have to go greater deco. Of course cut out boards are cheaper than any other 3D ffigurines and displays. Weird and too ‘down-to-earth’ deco, nuff said. :)

      It’s a shame though as Christmas is the most anticipated festive season of all as it is the year end we are all in the joyous holiday mood to go shopping and soak in the atmosphere but these animals are so stiff it scares the heck out of me. Neighbouring Curve did a splendid job this year with generous lightings. I kept going back there again and again. Super love it.

    I think they are going for that old pop up storybook look…

    • //

      Really? I just can’t figure out why the cardboard animals.. and also why their Christmas trees look like that. Haha!

  • //

    Very cute decorations!

    • //

      The dictionary says CUTE = Ugly but adorable. Hehe.

  • //

    Oh. Not much budget to do it nice this year.

      Last year, most of the malls went low key and Christmas was such a bore. This year, most malls picked up and did a great job except 1U who happened to proudly flaunt their worse :(

  • //

    1U has been cutting down on cost for festive decorations ever since the Mid-Autumn Festival last year, and you would remember the Christmas last year & Chinese New Year earlier this year were also of a lower budget, and it only gets worse this year.

    It’s kinda disappointing too as 1U had for many years did great festive decorations,

    I guess we better lower our expectations for the coming Chinese New Year so that we won’t be disappointed!

      I totally agree on lowering our expectations. After so many disappointments I no longer look forward to their festive decor unlike years ago when the first mall I go to is always 1U. Gone are their glory days during festive season.

      Last Christmas was weird but the rocking horse saved it. CNY earlier this year was a disappointment but nothing beats this Christmas decor. Seriously, nothing can be worse than this I hope.

    I actually saw them putting up the leaves one piece by one piece on the christmas tree but did not stay to watch them finishing it. So it turned out like this. Hhhhmmmm, I will have to see the real thing to decide. Will be doing the christmas decor crawl soon but then you have shown me all the decors for the major malls already.

    • //

      I saw them putting up the leaves piece by piece and it actually looked promising then. But the end result is such a disappointment :(

    I think the mall is not doing well perhaps, have to cut budget. But seriously, should be more creative than this! Like children’s school project! :D
