Posted by : foongpc | Monday, February 23, 2015 | Published in


This year, I am a little late in posting about the Chinese New Year decorations in the Klang Valley. But better late than never, right?

Even though the Chinese New Year holidays are over for most people in Malaysia, the celebration continues till the 15th day. As such, I don't think it's too late to take a look at some of the decorations this year.

However, I did not get to visit many shopping malls unlike last year, so this time I shall cover just five major shopping malls in Klang Valley.

Let's begin with Pavilion KL. The Chinese New Year decorations here were impressively stunning as expected. Lots of red lanterns adorned the main entrance of this high-end shopping mall.

As you step into the mall, you can see burgeoning flowers and red lanterns in front leading towards the Main Concourse.

From the top of the stairs, the sight of a giant Golden Goat took centre stage.

Dubbed the biggest goat replica in the Malaysia Book Of Records, this giant golden goat stands at 9.1 metres tall.

I marvelled at the LED-lighted peonies as I walked down the stairs towards the Main Concourse.

The theme for this year is "Peak Of Prosperity". Standing majestically, the Goat signifies triumph and opulence.

I circled round the Centre Court on higher floors to take different shots of the Goat and the beautiful red lanterns.

There's a big prosperity cat - Maneki Neko - at the main entrance, welcoming visitors to the shopping mall. Hopefully, this big prosperity cat will bring in even more customers and fortune to Pavilion KL!

Overall, I think the decorations at Pavilion KL were pretty impressive! What about you?

Next, I went over to Suria KLCC.

I could not remember exactly the theme for this year but it definitely has something to do with drums.

Maybe it was 'Rhythm Of Prosperity' or something.

Outside at the Esplanade, there was a tall circular structure with red lanterns hanging.

I love the view of the red lanterns with the iconic Petronas Twin Towers in the background.
