The Chinese New Year is a time for family reunions as well as respecting traditions, rituals and customs.

The Bukit Jalil Pavilion in Kuala Lumpur thus welcomes the Year of the Tiger with a program of activities, performances, promotions, exclusive gifts and exchanges for its customers and visitors.

The mall kicked off its Chinese New Year celebrations, themed “Prosperous, Abundant and Joyful,” with an energetic 25-member lion dance and drum performance by the award-winning Xuan Long troupe.

There was also a traditional dance performance by the Dance of the Fortune Palace troupe.

Datuk Joyce Yap, Managing Director of Kuala Lumpur Pavilion Sdn Bhd Retail, and her VIP team blared the drums to mark the launch of the festive campaign before launching an unusual mix of fortune cookies, sweets, marshmallows and sweets .

Calligrapher Shi Yong Fei, 56, from Shanghai, China, was invited as part of the launch event to write New Year’s blessings for guests.

There was also a “Joyful Fortune Sticks” section where guests could choose sticks to get their fortune predictions for the Year of the Tiger.

“As the Tiger is full of life, positive energy, luck and strength, this Year of the Tiger is conducive for us to fully embody its spirit and drive to achieve and progress.

“We are confident that with this strong start to the year, we will see a strong comeback in 2022,” Yap said.
