It's a Pop Yeh Yeh Raya this year at Sunway Pyramid!

Other than the festive food and promotions being promoted during the festive season, you have to agree with me that decorations at malls are always breathtaking to invite fellow shoppers and Malaysian to join in the festive season. This Raya season, Sunway Pyramid takes shoppers back in time to the psychedelic 60s! Raya has always been a time where families and friends get together in celebrations of Aidilfitri, so this year, to make things more exciting, Sunway Pyramid has arraged good music and an array of activities to be enjoyed at Sunway Pyramid's Orange Concourse. With the theme being called as the Raya Pop Yeh Yeh town square, you can also check out some snippets of Tayangan Filem Klasic at the Panggong while enjoying some throwback snacks.

If you havent heard of Pop Yeh Yeh, it was a musical movement in Malaysia and Singapore from the 1960's where the term Pop Yeh Yeh was derived from The Beatles hit song 'She loves you' with the words from the chorus, "Yeah Yeah Yeah" becoming part of the song title. Pop yeh Yeh was also the efficient way to communicate the link between Malay and Western pop music.

A number of Pop Yeh Yeh legends like Dato A. Rahman Hassan, S. Mariam, and Adnan Othman were present at the event, and for the opening gambit of the event, legendary Adnan Othman belted out his classic hits like Bershukor, Normah, and Hamba Terima to guests and shoppers of Sunway Pyramid.

I have to admit that it was indeed a nostalgic night, and as a matter of fact, i managed to get my hair and make up done in the sixties fashion followed with a buka puasa dinner! I didnt get to enjoy the dinner, but i couldnt resist but to try to classic ais krim goyang treat. Never knew, classic treats were actually really good! So, if you happen to be at Sunway Pyramid, be sure to get yourself a bite of this rare ais krim goyang.
