Thanks to the wonderful invitation, I recently went to Pavilion KL for their “The Rise to Opulence” Chinese New Year Festive Campaign, a breathtakingly abundant celebration of record-setting proportions in conjunction with the Lunar Year of the Rooster.
Promoting the notion that one’s hard work, passion and blessings will give rise to receiving opulence, Pavilion KL’s grand decorations this Chinese New Year portray the humble Rooster transforming into a Majestic Phoenix, rising high into the sky, full of pride and beauty.
Take a walk under the Malaysia’s Largest Phoenix Replica at the Centre Court and be bestowed with opulence and good fortune.
8 Prosperity Lions and Lucky Drums provided a thundering welcome to the guests, signifying an auspicious start to the festival, included Guest of Honour, YB Datuk Seri Utama Tengku Adnan bin Tengku Mansor, Minister of Federal Territories, Puan Sri Cindy Lim, Executive Chairman of Kuala Lumpur Pavilion Sdn Bhd, Datuk Lee Tuck Fook, Executive Director of Pavilion REIT and Dato’ Joyce Yap, CEO of Retail, Pavilion KL.
Dato’ Joyce Yap said, “Each year, Pavilion KL leads the way in presenting grand decorations, exciting promotions and performances for the Lunar New Year. This Year of the Rooster, we continue to open our doors and welcome everyone, regardless of race or religion to enjoy the festivity, as the spirit of unity and racial harmony is very unique to Malaysia. While we indulge in the celebration, let’s not forget about the less fortunate. We encourage all shoppers to join in our CSR initiative this Lunar New Year to give back to our community. Gong Xi Fatt Cai!”.
The launch was officiated with a strike on the auspicious ‘gong’ by Datuk Seri Utama Tengku Adnan and Puan Sri Cindy Lim to awaken the Golden Rainbow Rooster, as a symbolic gesture to usher in the Year of the Rooster. Shoppers are invited to stroke the Golden Rainbow Rooster to be blessed with prosperity and happiness this Lunar New Year.
As with all signature festivals, Pavilion KL broke the records once again in the Malaysia Book of Records by presenting shoppers the ‘Largest Phoenix Replica’ in Malaysia, measuring 40 feet in length, 52 feet in width and 12 feet in height. Founder of the Malaysia Book of Records, Tan Sri Datuk Danny Ooi was present to award the honourary certificate to Puan Sri Cindy Lim.
The event concluded with a thrilling acrobatic lion dance performance by World Champion Lion Dance Troupe Kun Seng Keng who electrified the crowd with an energetic rendition of their award winning act.
A Rooster Gallery is displayed at the Centre Court, where a myriad of Rooster merchandise is exhibited, exclusively sourced by Pavilion KL from around the world. Specially selected to benefit Pavilion KL’s on-going “Charity at Heart” initiative, the ‘Dance of the Prosperity Rooster’ decorative plate is for presented to shoppers for a token sum of RM1,288, with proceeds going to old folks’ homes and needy organizations nationwide.
