The entire mall has been transformed into a magnificent Mandarin orange garden with a theme “Abundance of Prosperity”. Besides Mandarin oranges, the red lanterns that hang around the garden signify fortune, wealth and abundance. The decoration depicts a garden in a traditional Chinese courtyard house.

Mandarin orange has a deep symbolic meaning as it sounds similar to the word “gold” in Chinese culture and it also represent good luck. Having Mandarin  oranges at home, office and shops during Chinese New Year is said to bring riches into your life and Suria KLCC would like to share these positive vibes with shoppers and visitors during this festive celebration.

The Lunar New Year celebration is also about family and we appreciate the traditional values that come with it. It reminds us of our roots and family is an irreplaceable wealth. For this, Suria KLCC wants you to come home and celebrate a season full of love and warmth this CNY.” said Chief Executive Officer and Executive Director, Andrew Brian at the launched of Suria KLCC‘s CNY campaign.

This follows the success of Shopee 11.11 Big Sale in November and Shopee 9.9 Super Shopping Day in September.
