Official Launch Of Sungei Wang Old Shanghai Springtime Splendour



In conjunction with Sungei Wang’s Old Shanghai Springtime Launch, 36 senior citizens from Joy Haven Home for the Elderly and Rumah Orang Tua Victory were treated to an exclusive Chinese New Year Reunion Lunch at the shopping mall on Wednesday, 8th January 2014.

Apart from lunch, the guests were treated to a variety of performances from a lion dance to a Shanghai oldies singing performance from Yudi, dubbed as “The Pride of Bentong”. Yudi is a music composer, song writer and artiste and has been performing live for more than a decade since 1999.


The main objective of the launch is to spread the festive season’s joy and happiness to the senior citizens and playing the corporate social responsibility role. The senior citizens received red packets and goody bags from the Management of Sungei Wang Plaza.

Joy Haven Home for the Elderly is operated by The Salvation Army and is situated in Section 12 of Petaling Jaya. It provides residential and day-care facilities for men and women over the age of 65 years. The Home opened in 2001 and has a capacity of 20 residents.

Rumah Orang Tua Victory is a shelter home which provides support and medical care to destitute old folks. The Home currently has 45 residents.


Themed as Old Shanghai Springtime Splendour, the stage at Sungei Wang’s Concourse is set as a courtyard of ancient Shanghai dating back to 1930s-1960s. The back drop is mainly cardboard with a brick design similar to the Forbidden City of China with a small entrance opening in red just like an oriental courtyard. Bright oriental lanterns and red festive decorative paper and golden calligraphy words reflect the Lunar New Year ambiance.
