Kuala Lumpur, 10 January 2023 – From 2 January to 5 February, Suria KLCC is outfitted to  transport shoppers to the streets of olden China during its Chinese New Year campaign.  

Malaysia’s premier shopping destination will kick-start the Year of the Water Rabbit in a grand  way with Malaysia’s Biggest Rabbit Replica Made Of Gold Coins, as certified by the Malaysia  Book of Records 2023. This magnificent display can be found at the KLCC Esplanade.

Suria KLCC celebrates the cultural values and customs that define the Chinese New Year – values such as family togetherness, shared prosperity and tradition. To that end, our team has  worked tirelessly to curate an immersive multi-sensory experience that will engage and delight  visitors at our mall this festive season.

“Honouring a holiday that is steeped in ancestry and heritage, you will see that the Suria KLCC  Centre Court has been transformed into an ancient Chinese town, inspired by the magnificent  ancient cities and villages of China such as Pingle, Dali and Lijiang,” said Andrew Brien, CEO of  Suria KLCC Sdn Bhd. 

This ancient oriental setup features a traditional Chinese gate tower as its centrepiece,  surrounded by building structures covered in aged wooden façades with upturned eaves  characteristic of traditional Chinese architecture.

As shoppers prepare to celebrate the Chinese New Year on 22 January, they can find an  assortment of offerings in this old town setting as it comes alive with a vibrant bazaar. Shoppers  will also find great photo opportunities with traditional Chinese elements such as the rickshaw,  while the many red lanterns that line these streets will also set a joyous festive ambience for all.

This charming décor extends to Ramlee Mall, so there are plenty of excellent backdrops for  photos. A photobooth providing complimentary photo print-outs and e-copies is also available for  shoppers to commemorate festive memories with loved ones.

Amid the ancient Chinese town setting, visitors will also discover a Wishing Tree where they can  share their hopes and aspirations for the new year. In the spirit of the season, monetary donations  made at the Wishing Tree will be pledged in support of Suria KLCC’s partner NGOs, in furthering  the Mental Health Awareness agenda.

Tradition also gets an update with the sparkling waters of our interactive “river” filled with realistic  koi fishes. All our visitors can experience the novelty of flipping virtual coins from the screen of  a tablet and into the “river”.

Apart from that, Suria KLCC has also prepared shows and attractions to delight shoppers. Catch  the Lion Dance performance at the Centre Court on 7, 14, 21, 22 and 23 January at 2pm; while  the Acrobatic Lion Dance, held at the Esplanade, will happen on 8, 10, 15, 22 and 23 January at  5pm.

In conjunction with the Chinese New Year campaign, Suria KLCC is launching its much-awaited  Suria KLCC Shopping e-Vouchers (SKLCC e-Vouchers).  

As part of their plan to introduce this e-Voucher and reward festive shoppers, those who spend  RM1,500 and above in two receipts at any specialty store between 2 and 20 January will receive  RM100 worth of SKLCC e-Vouchers and an exclusive set of Suria KLCC Red Packets.

Additionally, the first 200 shoppers who purchase RM1,000 worth of SKLCC e-Vouchers during  this festive campaign will receive an additional RM100 worth of the e-Vouchers.

“As you and your loved ones do your new year shopping at Suria KLCC, I invite you to make the  most out of this introductory promotion,” Brien added.


Alamanda Shopping Centre’s Chinese New Year campaign, running from 1 to 24 January, will  also see the mall decked in a similar theme of “Old China Town” to evoke a feeling of nostalgia. 

Throughout the campaign, shoppers stand to reap amazing shopping rewards. Spend RM600  and above in a maximum of two receipts at any speciality store to receive a RM30 Alamanda  shopping voucher. 

For those who spend RM1,500 and above in a maximum of two receipts at any specialty store,  they receive a RM80 Alamanda shopping voucher. 

A line-up of performances is set to put shoppers in a celebratory mood. Alamanda Shopping  Centre will present a well-loved tradition during Chinese New Year – a highly energetic Acrobatic  Lion Dance on stilts. On the first night of Chinese New Year, shoppers can also catch a tantalising  Dragon Dance with LED lights. 

In another show, shoppers will be duly amazed by the quick “face-changing” feat of a performer  dressed in a traditional Chinese opera mask and costume. To add to the festivities, shoppers will also enjoy Chinese cultural dances performed by talented dancers. 

Apart from watching the performances, shoppers can join a contest to test their creativity at  making a “tanglung” using Chinese New Year red packets. Shoppers who complete their lantern  the fastest based on the provided sample will win the contest and the top three winners will be  rewarded with RM30 Alamanda shopping vouchers.

Not forgetting children, workshops such as Chinese Shadow Puppetry, Chinese Lantern, Paper  Fan art & crafts are organised to entertain VIKIDs. Each VIKids member is eligible to participate  in the workshops based on a first-come, first-served basis.  


Over at Kemaman’s Mesra Mall, its Centre Court will be decorated to the theme of the “Year of  Rabbits”. During its campaign period, running from 2 to 22 January, shoppers who spend RM350  in a maximum of two receipts at any specialty store are entitled to redeem a premium Chinese  New Year gift set of four bowls with chopsticks.

On 21 and 22 January, special Chinese New Year performances are laid out to put everyone in  a festive mood. Shoppers can enjoy the auspicious traditional Acrobatic Lion Dance with an  upbeat Drum Performance as well as an entertaining Face-Changing show. These shows will be  held at the Centre Court.

A Rabbit Craft Workshop will be available for all VIKids members to participate in. This workshop  will be held on 13 and 14 January. This activity is exclusively for VIKids members only. Non members can register to be a member before the activity with a spend of RM50.
