Sunway Pyramid's Raya Anyamans

The Official Deco for this festive Raya season, only at Sunway Pyramid
With Raya just another week left, im pretty sure that you realize that malls around Klang valley are up with their festive decorations to celebrate the festive season together with their loyal shoppers. And recently I was invited to the community engagement event which was held recently, and I have tons of things to share with you guys! Even Fahrin Ahmad, Amber Chia and Deborah Henry was there too!

The Anyaman of a Ketupat.
This year, you might want to drop by Sunway Pyramid to celebrate the festive season where this years’ inspiration would be ‘anyamans’ which surrounds the mall with its delicate yet simple art form to create an ambience like no other for this coming Aidilfitri. We had a lovely traditional performance as well, to officiate the launch of the Raya Theme and promotions happening at Sunway Pyramid too.

Why shop at Sunway Pyramid? From now till 26th July, the mall will be holding a few exclusive anyaman workshops and exciting redemptions. Not only that Sunway Pyramid will be rewarding shoppers, but they are also giving backt o society with an interactive activity to enjoy with shoppers. We had celebrity attendees and shoppers of Sunway Pyramid folding ketupats at the event where each ketupat folded, Sunway Pyramid will donate RM5 to the National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM)’s Childrens Home of Hope. So if you would like to contribute, do make sure you fold some ketupats when youre at Sunway Pyramid.

Kevin Tan gave a speech as the Chief Operating Officer.
At the event, we had Kevin Tan, Chief Operating Officer of Sunway Shopping Malls who said ‘ Shopping malls of today play a pivotal role in the community. They have transformed to become not only a place to shop but also a public meeting place where people integrate, socialize and harmonize.” Well said Kevin Tan.

Since children were present at the event, Leo & Leona, Sunway Pyramids lovable mascots made a Raya Roar appearance to keep them entertained. And if you want to bring your kids out for a stroll at Sunway Pyramid, Leo & Leona will be there making an appearance every weekend & public holiday from 27th June tp 19th July at 2pm & 4pm. So get your camera ready and get dressed for Raya to take photos with their lovely set up. We even had Kevin Tan and celebrities giving out some 'Duit Raya' and goodie bags to the children attendees from Masjid Al-Husna which was a joyful moment to see smiles every where.

Before the event ended, a video titled ‘Titipan Sayang, Seribu Kemaafan’ was being presented to attendees to share their charitable initiative which was very touching that I shed a tear. For your convenience, I’ve embed the video below for your convince and you will understand the emotional meaningful video which has touched many souls who were there. Or you can personally visit the official page to watch the video by clicking on this link:

Justeru pada Hari Raya ini, Sunway Pyramid memberi misi istimewa kepada kanak-kanak terbabit untuk memberi kejutan kepada ibu bapa mereka dan dalam masa sama memohon kemaafan. Aidilfitri is a time to ask for forgiveness. This coming Raya, Sunway Pyramid gave an opportunity to children from different backgrounds to create a surprise for their parents. #AnyamanRaya #SunwayPyramid #HariRaya #MaafZahirdanBatin

The highlight dish at the event, at Tarbush.
Breaking fast 
The event ended with celebrities and guest from Kraftangan Malaysia, Masjid Al-Husna and members of the media were treated to a sumptuous  buka puasa dinner at Tarbush. Thank you Sunway Pyramid for having me and of course, the company was the best. Managed to meet new friends and enjoyed the trill of breaking fast with new faces.

So do make sure you make time to drop by Sunway Pyramid this festive season and do not forget to visit the mall’s concourse, where they have transformed the space into a nostalgic Raya vision. On weekends at the Orange Concourse, there will be an exclusive Raya Weaving Workshop by professional craftswomen from Perbadanan Kemajuan Kraftangan Malaysia, where you can learn how to weave as they will gladly assist you step by step.
