This Lunar New Year of the Monkey, Pavilion KL presents a feast of experiences and sweet decorations that are peach-perfect. Aptly themed the “Feast of Longevity”, shoppers can savour the delights of the festivity, enjoy the grand decorations, heart-thumping shows and experience ‘charity at heart’.
At the Bukit Bintang entrance, walk through the ‘Arch of Longevity Peaches’ for a taste of abundance and sweetness. Then stroll down the ‘Steps of Sweet Scents’ where you will enjoy a floral scent-experience, presented for the first time in a mall festival, with partner Sunsilk. Behold the sight of the ‘Auspicious Golden Monkey’, standing 30 feet tall on a mountain of gold and fortune. Toss a coin into the mountain and be bestowed with good luck and fortune throughout the year.
The auspicious Chinese New Year launch delighted mall shoppers, tourists and guests, who were greeted with a ceremonial welcome by eight prosperity lions. Ms Joyce Yap, CEO of Retail, Pavilion KL and Mr Philip Ho, CEO of REIT, Pavilion REIT placed a giant gold coin at the ‘Auspicious Golden Monkey’ to welcome prosperity, longevity and happiness for 2016. The ceremony was followed by a crowd-engaging drum performance by award-winning local arts group ‘Orang Orang’ Drum Theatre.
