Weaving of Joyous Raya in Sunway Pyramid
Sunway Pyramid this festive season where the inspiration of anyaman surrounds the mall with its delicate yet simple art form, creating an ambience like no other this coming Aidilfitri. From now until 26 July, the mall will be holding exclusive anyaman workshops and exciting redemptions!
At the community engagement event held recently, celebrities Fahrin Ahmad, Amber Chia, and Deborah Henry, along with shoppers of Sunway Pyramid folded ketupats for a good cause. Proceeds will go to National Cancer Society Malaysia (NCSM)’s Children’s Home Of Hope.
After the closing of the event, celebrities and guests from Kraftangan Malaysia, Masjid Al-Husna, and members of the media were treated to a sumptuous buka puasa dinner at Tarbush.
“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 rendezvous. They are public spaces which integrate, socialise, and harmonise community in a convenient and safe environment with modern services and facilities that match up to their lifestyle,” said Kevin Tan, Chief Operating Officer of Sunway Shopping Malls.
“With Sunway Resort City being part of the community, we have an excellent cultural platform to reach out to people from all walks of life. Festive celebrations are great avenues to inculcate timeless traditions, fascinating cultural exchange and fostering understanding,” he added.
To keep the children entertained, Sunway Pyramid’s lovable mascots, Leo & Leona will be doing their Raya Roar appearance every weekend & public holiday from 27 June to 19 July at 2pm & 4pm. Be sure to get your cameras ready as they will be dressed in Raya fashion!
Come take a walk back in time as the mall’s concourse is transformed into a nostalgic Raya vision. Inspired by the tranquil lifestyle of yesteryear, the anyaman theme hopes to reengage both today’s and yesterday’s generation in reliving their childhood memories.
