Lunar New Year Bank Of Abundance At Sunway Velocity Mall


dsc_8117Welcome the Year of the Rat with Sunway Velocity Mall’s “Bank of Abundance” for a year filled with growth and success. From now to 9 February 2010, immerse in the bountiful atmosphere inspired by Sekinchan, the main producer of rice in Malaysia. Head on down to the quaint little village nestled in the mall’s Main Atrium at Ground Floor. Surrounded by scenic fields of paddy, the traditional wooden tall houses are a throwback to the past wreathed with an abundance of reds and golds. What better way to celebrate the Year of the Rat than to be surrounded by what it enjoys, the opulence and waves of bountiful harvest.

Standing tall and central to the Main Atrium is the grand Wishing Tree with its cascading branches and leaves. Paramount to the cultural belief of the Wishing Tree, shoppers will receive a Wishing Ribbon with every redemption – make your wish and throw your ribbon upon the tree to make your wish come true.

Surrounding the Wishing Tree are the many booths for patrons to shop in preparation for the Lunar New Year. From traditional CNY clothing for kids and adults, CNY cookies, hampers, Chinese teas and also “Childhood”, a blast from the past with popular snacks and toys from the 1970s to 1990s.


As shared by Ms Phang Sau Lian, the General Manager of Sunway Velocity Mall, “With this Lunar New Year, it symbolizes new beginnings and renewals with the Rat being the first animal in the 12 Chinese zodiac signs. This rene3wal aptly suits Sunway Velocity Mall as we embark in new ways to engage with the community and shoppers by revamping the mall’s retail stores, space and campaigns to further provide the best experiential touch points within the mall to invigorate all the five senses.”

In line with the traditions of the celebrations, the mall has also put together several performances and activities for all. Collect goodies when you catch the God of Prosperity on his walkabouts and get into the excitement with lion dance performances, Chinese diabolo performances and Yamaha’s instrumental performances.
