Springtime Floral Lunar New Year @1 UTAMA

With a month long flurry of festivities, the world’s 6th largest mall 1 Utama (yes they are) is the perfect place to ring in the Year of the Monkey with good fortune. Here’s their cheat sheet to all things auspicious at 1 Utama Shopping Centre starting from 16 January to 10 February 2016.

Festive Décor
Bright celebratory colours are undoubtedly in season at 1 Utama. The mall is decorated with touches of crimson and pink – in the brilliant lanterns hung outdoors and around the mall, in the bejeweled tassels adorning the walkways, and in the bright ribbons and decorations that shout prosperity and exuberance. 

Over at Lower Ground Floor Oval concourse, tall oriental structures and arches will capture and demand all your attention. These wooden towers are built to also house festive shopping kiosks for visitors to shop and walkabout. The festive mood is further set with real bamboos, a kaleidoscope of colourful honeycomb paper lanterns and bouquet after bouquet of giant peonies and flowers to mimic the floral spring time lunar season.

Cultural Performances
With the roar of a lion and the pound of a drum, the beating heart of the festivities is the remarkable lion dance – a fantastic show that captures the essence that is Chinese New Year in Malaysia. To celebrate this crowd favourite, 1 Utama has invited three famous lion dance troupes to perform throughout the month, which include Hong Teik Acrobatic Lion Dance 2015 National Champion, Kun Seng Keng Acrobatic Lion Dance and Khuan Loke Acrobatic Lion Dance. Other must-see cultural performances lined up are the Flying Diabolo, The Orang Orang Drums and 24 Festival Drums.

Whet Your Appetite
Eating one’s weight during Chinese New Year is widely encouraged at 1 Utama. With over 100
eateries and restaurants, toss your yee sang or longevity noodles, have a traditional Poon Choi and gather with family and friends at the many F&B outlets here. Celebrate and feast to your heart’s content.

Retail Fix
Brace yourself for a premier shopping experience by getting your retail fix at 1 Utama. Shoppers can easily spend a day in Malaysia’s largest mall, shopping for new outfits, home décor, melt-in-your mouth cookies and festive hampers. Overall, this year’s Chinese New Year at 1 Utama is no short of good fortune, tradition, culture and auspicious sights for a memorable celebration!
