With Merdeka and Malaysia Day around the corner, it is time to spend time with your family and friends. Here’s a list of how you can make the most of your holidays at Pavilion REIT Malls – from catching up over amazing Malaysian food to watching the latest movies together.
Get in the patriotic mood with JUANG – a movie featuring a collaboration between five local directors to bring Malaysia’s fight against Covid-19 to the big screen. Inspired by real-life stories, the film captures how Malaysians came together to overcome the hardships brought on by the pandemic.
