Sunway Pyramid’s Chinese New Year decor

Our second stop for our CNY mall decor hunt is Sunway Pyramid. They have a huge junk ship right smack in the Centre Court. A junk is an ancient Chinese sailing vessel/ship design still in use today. A junk is usually fully loaded with food and goods hence the Winds of Fortunes in Sunway Pyramid this CNY. I love the junk. It’s nicely built. I still remember their magnificently tall dragon last year and they […]

This year, we’ve been preoccupied with AngPow lantern making sessions that we don’t have much time to mall hop to check out their beautiful decor.  We finally stepped foot in 1 Utama today to check out their ‘Golden Street’.  The entire Centre Court has been converted into a China Town (actually the streets of Hong Kong) Can you believe that this is actually in a mall?  Look at those peanut tins..  Complete with traffic light […]

Christmas lights in Sunway

Remember my post here saying that I’m unimpressed with the Christmas street lighting of Orchard Road, Singapore? Well, that is because we have a much more colorful street lighting in Sunway! Every year without fail we’ll take a leisurely stroll along the cheerful and brightly lit Sunway street. This year is no exception. Love this Christmas tree. It’s quite hard to photograph this tree as people kept surrounding it for pictures too. Can you see […]

Christmas Decoration: One Utama’s Pastryland

It’s all about getting FAT and SUGAR HIGH in 1 Utama this Christmas! Fresh from the oven, we are dwarfed by the gigantic pastries and sorts. I didn’t get last year’s Underwater theme. I just don’t see the connection then. I don’t get this year’s extremely unhealthy theme neither. But for what is worth, they do look cute lah.  Snowman yes, very Christmasy indeed.  But gigantic biscuits?  Raindrops falling on my head…  Now we know […]
