“Painting the Malls Red”

Posted on Updated on

Chinese New Year will kick off on February 10th, and as part of the retail tradition in this part of the world, shopping malls deck their best ushering fabulous luck and prosperity (ie bring in more visitors!)

I had the opportunity to check out a few well-known malls in town:

 

One Utama, Petaling Jaya:

Ok, I need to rest my eyeballs… seen too much Red today!

    Guess all the shopping malls in Malaysia are doing their best to get the most customers to their mall. It is really interesting to guess or see what they will come up with. =) for each festival
