2010 KL Chinese New Year decorations

Chinese New Year falls on 14th of February and now we can see shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur is now in joyous mood as well. Last few weeks i had the chance to travel around to see them. Let’s have a look!

Lot 10:

Decorations in Lot 10 was expected to be mediocre, but at the main hall, there’s quite nice too:

Pavilion KL:

Our first destination was Pavilion actually. With grand decorations last Christmas so we would be eager to drop off here first to see how they are now.

Well, the Christmas tree was replaced with the cherry blossom.

The entrance hall is decorated with lanterns hanging from the ceiling.

On the upper part of the trees, there are cranes.

Birds are real too. No testicles this time šŸ˜›

Pavilion doesn’t look nice this time compared to what they did on Christmas. Here they just reused the red carpet and the settings used in Royal Christmas, which was also in red.

“If take photo with Mr Funny so u will be always funny”, i think is the same person highlighted by sushi-guin last time. This time, he is just sitting there and people take photo with him. I wonder whether he is sleeping? šŸ™‚

Berjaya Times Square:

Next we stop at Berjaya Times Square. They have two large lanterns at the main hall. The theme here is the olden days chinatown. You can also notice that red clothes are hanged on all the barriers at each floor, which makes the atmosphere here more like celebrating Chinese New Year compared to Pavilion.

I like the signboard very much šŸ™‚

There’s a mini china town in the second hall. Shop buildings on the side and there’s a stage in front.

They even went as far as making electric poles, and also a pulling cart to transport people.

I was also lucky to see some performance there.

The Mines Shopping Center

Near my place, of course i wont be missing this. The theme here is Doraemon! Theme here is “Doraemon Brings Fortune to Mines”. Everywhere here you can see lanterns and banners.

It’s more in pink rather than red. Cherry blossoms.

One Utama:

I never wanted to go to One Utama as it is quite inconvenient to travel there using public transport. However, from what i read in The Star, it looks fascinating so it might worth the hassle to go there.

Lanterns hanging below the bridge. Must be nice in the night!

Theme of Chinese New Year here is…

Maneki Neko! It’s the year of tiger but the management thinks tiger will scare away all the visitors so they use their tamer siblings, the cat. Maneki Neko, or Beckoning Cat, welcomes everyone!

Theme here is “Celebrating paw-sperity”

Special here is the cat has soft furs (unlike ceramics) and also wears New Year outfit. There’s several Maneki Nekos here, and some have moles at on their face. All of them have tails curl to the front. I wonder if they have their own names as well.

They use fresh flowers here. They must have big budget this time to make such decorations over the whole shopping center.

Shopping Malls definitely spend big budget to celebrate Chinese New Year. Currently on top my list is One Utama, followed by the chinatown in Times Square.

I would visit Mid Valley and KLCC sometime soon to see how they fare against these two. Stay tuned for more!
