CNY Mall decoration: The Curve

The Curve’s Chinese New Year decor this year is an elaborate floating fishing village.  View from the first floor.  With real fish swimming around, it truly feels like a fishing village. I feel like catching those tilapia. Would have made a very delicious steamed fish dinner :P It is really a fishing village comes to live here.

CNY mall decoration: 1 Utama

Have you seen 1 Utama’s Chinese New Year decor this  year? I took a peek down and saw these… God of Prosperity and friends? I am only familiar with Cai Shen (财神) but not his friends but it’s okay because this decor is so much better than their shocking cardboard Christmas decor last year. I was even afraid to take a look at their CNY decor initially for fear that it might be worse than […]

Paper Quilling Chinese New Year Card

We don’t usually go to Paradigm Mall but several weeks ago we did to meet up with friends. After out meet up, we thought of walking around for a while when we passed by Popular Bookstore and saw that they are giving a free art and craft session for kids but there was not even a single kid keen to participate. Why? What is happening to kids these days? Art and crafts don’t fancy them […]

Ang Pow Fish Lantern

I’ve got many requests for this Ang Pow Fish Lantern. I’m not too sure why when there are many more other beautiful lanterns that we can do. Maybe because it is a fish and Chinese people like fish? Makes sense? No? Nevermind. Whatever the reason, it is very simple to make this. So fish it is.  Ang Pow Fish Lantern You will need 18 ang pow wrappers for this. Ang means red. You do not necessarily […]

Christmas Decor: Suria KLCC

I am surprised that KLCC did a great job with their Christmas decor this year. If every year they only put out giant Christmas trees, this year they have giant rocking horse and more.  Quite a lovely sight at KLCC. Beautiful Christmas tree with toy soldiers, gift boxes, rocking horse and everything Christmasy.  The giant rocking horse. Santa looks weird though. Haha. Overall this year’s decor is one of their better ones. Now let’s take […]

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. Board animals. More animals from boards. 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 […]

Mid Valley Megamall has transformed into a magical land this Christmas.

Reminds me of Honey I Shrunk […]

Footprint Christmas Tree Art For Kids

When Ethan was 3 years old, we did a footprint Christmas tree art together. Christmas is only a month away and now we have Ayden to join us for art and craft. This time, we use Ayden’s cute little footprint instead. Ayden together with Ethan painting Ayden’s cute little foot.  Ayden can’t paint his foot lah. He can’t even feed himself so Ethan had to do it all by himself. It is so weird that […]

I love their Christmas street lights. Always beautiful, always mesmerizing. Now, even their Raya street lighting is beautifully done. Let’s take a […]
