Continued from Part 1

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 last few days before Christmas, I went to Pavilion in KL and took some photos of the Christmas decorations there.



Although there was no "fake" snow falling like last year, I still felt as if I was in winter wonderland!



The front entrance with the tall Christmas trees were nice!



The interior was almost the same as last year so I was not too impressed, but for first timers, it should be quite nice.



I also saw the flying reindeers recycled from last year. It was placed at a different location this year.



They also recycled the reindeers with lights that were placed at the front entrance of the shopping mall last year.



This year, the reindeers were placed outside another part of the mall.



Not too impressed with all these recycled stuffs, but they were still pretty to look at, so I was OK with that. I just hope they don't use these reindeers again next year!

Although Fahrenheit 88 is just across the road opposite Pavilion, I did not visit it that evening. Instead I went there the next day!



The Christmas tree was simple and nothing to shout about, but I like that it was built from hundreds and hundreds of disks! Take a closer look!



It was really quite tall! But I think people were more eager to shop at Uniqlo than looking at this Christmas tree! Haha!



I noticed they use disks all over the place, like on the walls.



What do you think about using disks as decorations? OK, this is not really about Christmas decorations any more, so I shall move on.



Next, I went to KLCC half expecting a giant tall Christmas tree like what they put up a few years back.



Alas, what I saw were four small Christmas trees and nothing else. What a disappointment!



I thought KLCC could do much better than this!

My next destination was Empire Shopping Gallery in Subang. The theme was "A Raily Magical Christmas".

As you can see, there's a rail-track but wait, where's the train?



I spotted the train from above earlier on.



Oh! The train was there, hidden just outside the tunnel behind the Christmas trees!



Ooh! I like that white reindeer! Can you see it?



Later that evening, I went to Sunway Pyramid. I found the Christmas decorations inside the mall so utterly lousy I did not even bother to take photos of it!

But outside the shopping mall, it was another story.



The above picture shows the main entrance gate to Sunway Pyramid and Sunway Resort Hotel. It was quite impossible for me to get a good photo of this unless I stand in the middle of the busy road and risk being knocked down!

This is the decoration placed at the mini roundabout right outside Redbox Karaoke.



The whole stretch of road was filled with lights! It sure gave me a very festive Christmas feeling!



This is the beautifully lit-up front view of Sunway Resort Hotel located next to Sunway Pyramid.



Opposite the hotel I could see this beautiful area with lights and beautiful Christmas decorations.



There were quite a lot of people here and it was hard for me to take decent photos.



I like this Christmas tree and the Santa Claus and his carriage being reflected in the water.



Got to take another closer shot of this!



I was so engrossed in taking photos here I forgot I had to be at Subang Parade at 9pm to catch the dancing lights there! There was only 20 minutes left. Would I be able to make it?

Luckily for me, there was no heavy traffic that night and I reached Subang Parade 5 minutes before the scheduled show.



The show was held outside the main entrance of Subang Parade just opposite TGI Fridays. As it turned out, not many people were there to watch it.



The lights were dancing to music. It was OK but nothing too impressive. I have seen much better ones elsewhere.



I even recorded a small part of the show using my iPhone. Here it is - sorry for the video camera shake as I was feeling rather restless after drinking coffee earlier in the evening. I could not hold my iPhone steadily for too long!



So this brings us to the end of my 2010 Christmas Decorations posts! Hope you have enjoyed reading. Which mall do you think has the best Christmas decorations this year?

You might like to compare this year's decorations with last year's. If so, do read my post on 2009 Christmas Decorations Part 1 : Merry Christmas 2009 and Part 2 : Which Mall Has The Best Christmas Decorations In 2009?

With that, I would like wish all my dear readers A Happy New Year 2011!

    yiiks, i let it load n ended up with only the bottom few photographs to see. the rest of it were only loaded halfway. i love the decorations on sunway pyramid! so blue, feeling like a white christmas. it must have took you much effort to capture photographs of them.

    a belated merry christmas to you! most importantly, a Happy New Year to you, foong! n wishing you all the happiness of the world! :)

  16. [SK] said...

    yeah, Pavilion just reuse their decorations from last year, or is it not?? hmmm, so not sincere but one good thing is they recycle.. haha!!

    December 31, 2010 at 10:55 AM
  17. [SK] said...

    oh, the Empire one is kind of nice, white christmas and the deco really gives me the feel.. this is good.. :)

    December 31, 2010 at 10:55 AM
  18. [SK] said...

    yeah, i think KLCC has really cut down on the deco budget since the last few days.. very simple deco only, but guess this year is slightly better than last year??

    December 31, 2010 at 10:56 AM
  19. [SK] said...

    oh, i like that gate at Sunway, very nice!! one good thing is that the same management owns the whole area so they'll be able to make up the outdoor decoration, i like this idea..

    December 31, 2010 at 10:57 AM
  20. [SK] said...

    happy new year to you and wishing you all the best in the coming new year.. :)

    HAPPY NEW BLESSED YEAR TO YOU TOO, FOONG!!

    The scenes looked really like winter in the 2nd and 3rd pics.

    Its Really nice!!! I liked all the photographs.

    December 31, 2010 at 1:40 PM
  24. HappySurfer said...

    I like the first picture - kinda balanced and peaceful.

    Had to laugh reading "I just hope they don't use these reindeers again next year!" I had the same thought a little while earlier when I started reading the part. That shot of the outside of the reindeers and sleigh looks nice too.

    December 31, 2010 at 3:46 PM
  25. HappySurfer said...

    That CD tree is interesting. What a novel idea - money-saving too of old disks.

    Suria is disappointing this year. I would have loved that enormous purple tree they had a few years back. That was awesome!

    December 31, 2010 at 3:48 PM
  26. HappySurfer said...

    The Sunway Group did a great job. The electricity bill might see a spike for Dec. :)

    Thanks for the video on the dancing lights. Great effort there, Foong.

    Thanks for sharing the lovely pictures. Until next year, eh? Trust you had a wonderful Turkey Day and Happy New Year!

    December 31, 2010 at 3:54 PM
  27. Che-Cheh said...

    I like Sunway's one.

    Yup KLCC should do a better one.

    Happy Eve New Year!

    December 31, 2010 at 10:31 PM
  30. foongpc said...

    caroline, the Fahrenheit definitely can do better but I just like the use of disks to make the tree!

    Yes, you can ride on the train : )

    Happy New Year to you too!

    December 31, 2010 at 10:33 PM
  31. foongpc said...

    lina, Happy New Year to you and family! Quick go Uniqlo now - they are having sales! : )

    December 31, 2010 at 10:34 PM
  32. foongpc said...

    wenn, yes it's unique right? : )

    December 31, 2010 at 10:34 PM
  33. foongpc said...

    levian, oh sorry that you have problem loading the pictures! Yeah the decorations at Sunway Pyramid are nice! Happy New Year to you too! : )

    December 31, 2010 at 10:35 PM
  34. foongpc said...

    SK, haha! Yeah Pavilion re-used last year's decors - I guess it's good and bad! LOL!

    Oh! You like the snowy feel at Empire? So you like winter?

    KLCC's decor sucks. Is it better than last year? Not sure!

    Yeah, Sunway Pyramid is nice and with same management it's easier for them to do the outdoor decors.

    Happy New Year to you too! : )

    December 31, 2010 at 10:38 PM
  35. foongpc said...

    reanaclaire, really? You think KL can compete with Singapore? Hmm, maybe..

    Happy New Year to you! : )

    mei teng, yes, yes I think so too. Haha! Happy New Year to you! : )

  38. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, LOL! Yeah I really hope they don't use the reindeers again next year!

    Yes, a novel idea indeed to use CDs to form the Xmas tree at Fahrenheit 88. And yes, KLCC's decor is very disappointing!

    LOL!! Electricity bill spike for Dec for Sunway? I am sure of that!

    Welcome & Happy New Year to you! : )

    December 31, 2010 at 10:44 PM
  39. foongpc said...

    che-cheh, yes KLCC can do much better. Happy New Year! : )

    There are beautiful Foong. I'm not sure how was the decoration in Penang since I was busy with exam and didn't go to any mall since the exam weeks.

    Glad that I could see them in your blog even though I didn't have the opportunity to look them in real :-)

    Merry Christmas Foong and Happy new year.

    I hope this new year, will be better than the previous ones :-)

    Take care.

  42. Tekkaus said...

    Hmm...don't you think the red-green Christmas trees just don't match with the white branches? :p

    December 31, 2010 at 11:23 PM
  43. Tekkaus said...

    Ouh...they recycled last year deco? Must be tight huh this year but still they look gorgeous. :p

    December 31, 2010 at 11:23 PM
  44. Tekkaus said...

    Hahaha :D recycling is good mah. Save mother earth. :p

    December 31, 2010 at 11:24 PM
  45. Tekkaus said...

    OMG! A christmas tree made out of hundreds of CD....a nightmare...

    December 31, 2010 at 11:24 PM
  46. Tekkaus said...

    Ouh...the one in KLCC quite simple hoh. Almost like the one in Mahkota Parade, malacca. :D

    December 31, 2010 at 11:25 PM
  47. Tekkaus said...

    I love the one in Empire Shopping Gallery! Very fantasy-like. :)

    December 31, 2010 at 11:26 PM
  48. Tekkaus said...

    I think the one in Sunway is really awesome. They want you guys to focus on the beauty outside the mall. That's why the inner one was damn lousy. LOL :D

    December 31, 2010 at 11:27 PM
  49. lina said...

    I went to Uniqlo yesterday - look at the price and complained they were too expensive. LOL

    Actually, the price is not much different if you convert from the original Yen to RM but well... I guess I'm used to shop in Yen at Uniqlo! And was complaining how come there was no promo like buy 1 pants for 2,990yen;buy 2 for 5,000yen or something here in Uniqlo KL.

    And Zaini was ctsk tsking about the 1,000 yen sold at RM59.90 and how there were no 500yen clearance stuff here.

    I guess we'd better get our snobbish butt back to Japan to shop instead of being sour grapes here. LOL

  50. foongpc said...

    faisal, busy with exams? Oh, good luck with your exams! Happy New Year to you! : )

    January 1, 2011 at 12:43 PM
  51. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, yes don't really match but I still like it haha!

    LOL @ nightmare on the CDs tree! : D

    Yeah, Empire and Sunway quite nice.

    January 1, 2011 at 12:44 PM
  52. foongpc said...

    lina, LOL! I was laughing and laughing reading your comments! Haha! Yalah, don't expect the Uniqlo here to be as good as the one in Japan.

    RM1,000 yen = about RM38 right? So the shop here sell for RM59.90 want to make extra profit! Hmmph! Boycott!!

    And you are right - I also expect more clearance stuff but maybe they have nothing to clear haha!!

    Better get your snobbish butt back to Japan Uniqlo and shop! LOL!!

    This is nice!!!

    Nice Christmas decorations.

    I think the reason why some malls recycled their decors because of the recession this year. They are trying to save money.

    I was back in JB on the 30th, not much festive mood in the shopping centres there, but food was great as always.

    Ok this is off-topic, but I wished I had as much leg hair as you. Serious. ^_^
