Launching ‘The Beauty of Raya’ today was Dato’ Philip Ho, CEO of Pavilion REIT; Tuan Syed Yahya Syed Othman, Director of Package Development Division, Tourism Malaysia; Dato’ Abdul Wahab Khalil, Adviser to Da Men Mall; En. Md. Gharif bin Talib, Head, Cards Malaysia, CFS, Maybank. They were joined by 2 special guests, Malaysians who encapsulate beauty inside and out in their contributions to society and the community. They are Dr. Hartini Zainudin, Children’s Rights Activist and Founder of Yayasan Chow Kit and Dr. Norhayati Abdullah, Vice President of Malaysian Water Association and recipient of the L’Oréal-UNESCO For Women In Science Fellowship 2018.
They were joined by 100 children from Rumah Anak Yatim Shifa, Rumah Permata Hatiku and Cahaya Kasih Bestari, as well as representatives from the community, including Shopping Secretariat Malaysia, Polis Di Raja, Trafik Polis KL, Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur, Jabatan Bomba Dan Penyelamat Malaysia, Malaysian Tourist Guides Council, Red Crescent Malaysia, the media and friends of Pavilion KL. Guests were treated to a brilliant evening of performances, including a special dance performed by employees of Pavilion KL in a show of gratitude to the community. There was plenty of festive fun before breaking fast together with a delicious buffet at Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur.
At the launch, senior management of the mall, together with VIP guests distributed duit raya to orphans as well as Pavilion KL Ramadhan Packs to the community as part of its ongoing CSR efforts.

Speaking at the launch Dato’ Philip Ho said, “This Hari Raya, we are inspired by the ketupat. Though simple, it is a staple of many Malaysian meals and graces every Hari Raya spread. It is customary for Malaysians to make ketupat together. The ketupat is closely linked to Ramadan. By fasting, Muslims seek forgiveness and forgive the wrongdoing of others. It is a symbol of our unity, an icon of Malay tradition and the spirit of Hari Raya Aidilfitri. This is why the ketupat is a beautiful representation of “The Beauty Of Raya”, which is all about inclusiveness, coming together to share and celebrate Hari Raya together, regardless of race, religion or nationality.”
Pavilion KL also launched ‘The Beauty of Raya’ CSR initiative, a hallmark of all its festive campaigns. In sharing the tradition of ketupat-weaving, shoppers and visitors are invited to learn the art and create their own decorative ketupat at the mall, or make them at home using materials of their choice. With every ketupat that is woven and collected at Pavilion KL, the mall will donate RM1 to charity, with a target of 30,000 ketupats pledged for charity.
