Warning : There are a lot of photos in this post. If you have slow internet connection, you may want to blog hop or visit other sites while waiting for the photos to load.

During the past few weeks, I had been visiting a number of shopping malls to take pictures of Christmas decorations. I would like to share these pictures in this post.

First, I went to 1Utama.



I was quite impressed! The Oval Concourse in 1Utama seemed to have transformed into a Christmas town square complete with an ice-skating platform in the middle.



There were lots of stalls lining the town square. Most of them are famous brand names like Memory Lane, Lovely Lace, Famous Amos and Cold Storage to name a few.



You can actually walk up the stairs to enter the upper floors to shop for Christmas goodies!



The place was beautiful!



Don't you think it looks like a scene taken out from Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol?



Two thumbs up for the Christmas decoration at 1Utama this year!

Next, I visited The Curve.



It was a bit disappointing to me after last year's beautiful decoration.



The Christmas theme this year is "Under The Christmas Tree" featuring characters from the magical world of Toy Town.



There's a nice colourful house here!



And more Toy Town characters!




I was not impressed, but it's still better than many other shopping malls!

After The Curve, I visited Bangsar Shopping Centre (BSC). I really liked their Christmas decoration last year so I was eager to see what they offer this year.



It was quite nice, though could not match last year's.



There were lots of balls floating in the air!



Lots of stalls selling Christmas goodies here but I did not buy any!



Next, I visited Bangsar Village II as I heard they have the tallest LEGO Christmas tree in Asia!



Yes, the tree was indeed very tall (about 7 metres) and it was made entirely of LEGO blocks - all 850,000 pieces of them!



Even the ornaments were made from Lego. Look at the smiling snowman and candy canes!



I was told that the Christmas tree took 5 days to set up. Not bad, coming from the fourth largest toy manufacturer in the world!

From Bangsar, I headed to The Gardens Mall.



I did not expect too much from The Gardens as the Christmas decorations here was not good the last two years.



Indeed, it was pretty average, although I like this mall because it looks very classy.



I did not take much photos and instead headed next door to MidValley MegaMall.



Wow! There were so many things to see here! The whole Centre Court was filled with bears, snowmen, elves, puppies, rabbits and toy soldiers! Well, it's no wonder as the theme this year is "Have A FUNTOYSTIC Christmas!"



Look at this cute bear!



There's a giant brown bear amidst all the smaller white bears.



These fluffy bears were definitely a hit with children and adults alike.

Can you see that little child sitting on the box next to the two bears? That's how big the bears were!



Let it snow!



There were so many toys to take photos of and at so many different angles!



I had so much fun admiring each toy!



I'm not sure what these toy characters are, but the ones in the middle must be Tin Soldiers!



A funny looking Joker!



A ballerina dancing on a music box.



I'm just including this photo below to show that the ballerina had changed position due to her turning round and round!



There's even a Merry Go Round!



More snowman, Joker, bear and puppy!



Is this a rabbit in the middle flanked by two cute puppies?



Comical looking jester!



I like all those hot air balloons hanging from the ceiling. And what makes them adorable are the dolls and toys sitting in these balloons!



From the Centre Court, I walked over to the South Court and found more Christmas decorations there!



Oh my, what a cute donkey flanked by a group of Tin Soldiers!



Oh! There's a rabbit sleeping next to the adorable donkey!



I know, I know, you must be thinking why I am putting up so many photos of this donkey but it's so adorable! I want to take it back home! Haha!



I love the Christmas decorations at Mid Valley but could not help feeling that they copied Bangsar Shopping Centre's "Alice In Wonderland" Christmas decorations last year.



Coming up in Part 2 : Christmas Decorations at Pavilion, Fahrenheit 88, KLCC, Empire Shopping Gallery Subang, Subang Parade and Sunway Pyramid.

    1U has my vote. The town looks pretty and elegant. Thank you for the photos, Foong. Special thanks for the Lego Xmas tree. Read about it in the papers but it had no picture. Looking forward to the rest.
