What a stunning garden Suria KLCC have for this coming CNY Celebration!
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.
“Traditionally, giving Mandarin oranges during Chinese New Year indicates a sense of good fortune and the colour of Mandarin oranges also symbolises “gold” making it significant to be presence at anywhere during the festive period. The Cantonese pronunciation of giving Mandarin oranges-Somg Kam” is the same as “giving gold”, therefore it signifies wishing prosperity upon the recipient. 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.
The auspicious CNY launched delighted mall shoppers, tourists and guests who were greeted by the God of Prosperity to welcome prosperity, longevity and happiness for 2019. The ceremony was followed by a Chinese traditional dance and a lion dance by an award-winning Kwong Ngai acrobatic Lion Dance Group. This troupe is the Overall Champion of the 2017 National Dragon and Lion Dance Championship.
Visitors also can soak up the festive atmosphere and capture the moments at various photo spots the mall has set up including outdoor at the KLCC Esplanade. Shoppers are in for a surprise to see a grand new 40ft height Basket of Mandarin oranges replica known as “Basket of Good Fortune”, welcoming shoppers and visitors.
A basket of full Mandarin oranges is an auspicious representation of wealth in all aspects of life which is an important element in CNY celebration. The replica will be displayed until 22 February 2019.
