Though it has been a pretty bleak year, there is much to look forward to this Christmas season. Besides amazing food and gifts to look forward to, families can also consider taking their kids out to look at the gorgeous Christmas decoration at the various Pavilion REIT Malls.
Yes, it is not the best time to be going out to crowded places – but with the right planning and strict SOP, it is actually okay to go out. Just make sure the kids are well protected with their masks and face shield, while their hands are always sanitised.
Also a tip: try to go on a weekday if you can to avoid weekend crowds! You get to enjoy a more peaceful setting anyway and fewer people barging into your family photos.
So here’s what you can look forward to at the Pavilion REIT Malls this festive season:
Pavilion Kuala Lumpur
If you are always travelling this time of year to enjoy Christmas markets in European countries, you don’t have to miss out just because of COVID travel restrictions. Bringing the charm of a traditional European Christmas village right to your city centre, Pavilion KL has been transformed to include a spectacular 30-foot golden Christmas tree, the Pavilion Express train and of course, a Christmas Market that cannot be missed.
Don’t forget to check out the Christian Dior pink and gold Holiday Tree, the first-of-its-kind in Southeast Asia and one of only three such trees to be displayed globally this year alongside Taipei and Paris. The tree is decorated with customised Dior ornaments flown in from Paris and is lit up with dazzling lights, and compliments Dior’s exclusive Christmas collection featured in the newly opened store.
To make it a holiday to remember, you can also check-in at Pavilion Hotel Kuala Lumpur to enjoy a relaxing staycation in the heart of the city.
Da Men USJ
This year’s theme at the neighbourhood mall is ‘SANTAstic Christmas’, a lively and hip festive campaign featuring Santa and his reindeers in fun, cheeky and snazzy poses throughout the mall.
Check out Da Men’s SANTAstic Wishing Tree, where students and families can donate a book or toy to send some holiday cheer to underprivileged children from Buku Jalanan Chow Kit (BKCK). Shoppers can simply pick a tag from the Wishing Tree next to Da Men’s Information Counter to help fulfil a child’s Christmas wish by shopping for the gift at partner stores BookXcess, Litt Tak Hobby Shop, or Little Monster by Parkson.
What a lovely gesture!
You can also check out the sweet treats and creative handicrafts at Da Men’s Charity Christmas Bazaar. Give back to the community and show your support to various NGOs who set up their booths showcasing a wide selection of festive sweets and treats, handicrafts and meaningful gifts. Shoppers can also unleash their creativity by customising their own face masks at the Charity Christmas Bazaar. After all, it is all for a good cause, with 20% of the Bazaar’s total proceeds being donated to Kiwanis Club Kota Kemuning.
Intermark Mall is putting a different spin on Christmas this year, shining the spotlight on our local talent instead. Intermark Mall’s exclusive Artist Christmas tree features baubles specially designed by Malaysian fashion designer Carven Ong and four local artists from Art WeMe Contemporary Gallery.
Shoppers can also check out Intermark’s Christmas Delectable Pop-Up to explore a wide range of exclusively imported sweet treats and Christmas snacks from over 10 countries including the United Kingdom, Australia, Italy, Scotland and more. Head over to the Pop-Up to pick up your Christmas fruit cakes, Christmas puddings, Italian Christmas Panettone, Christmas Mince Pies and more!
It really does sound like a Holly Jolly Christmas there at Intermark Mall!
