I said I will show you some CNY decorations from a mall in KL. I almost had to renege on that promise. You see, I triple confirmed with the family members that they have nothing in store for me on CNY Eve, that I was only needed for the reunion dinner in the evening, and that I can have most of the day doing some last minute shopping in a mall in KL.
Yeah, I should have known better to trust them. After all, family members are the last persons on Earth that you should trust when it comes to things that don’t matter much. I was occupied with a bit of this and a bit of that and when I was finally ready to leave home and hit the malls, it was already 3PM. And dinner was going to be 6.30PM. I had three and a half hours to drive to the malls, look for clothes, grab a couple boxes of drinks, and drive home. With the sister in tow.
So what you see here are all rushed shots, all point and shoot and go. I had no time to wander around the malls and find nice angles like I did in Penang. And before you comment how I put my camera to good use, these are all taken with my Xperia Z3. I was on a rushed shopping trip, I didn’t think it was a great idea to carry my camera and get carried away. Basically, if you think these photos are not that great, that is because they are probably really not that great.
To compensate a bit, I will show you decorations from not one, but two malls..
This was the first mall I hit. The sister suggested to park my car here because the parking fee is (very much) cheaper here. And there is a Uniqlo here.
Fun fact about Fahrenheit88: This was my first visit to this mall. This mall was opened AFTER I moved to Penang for work. So I can say, it is one of the newest malls in KL.
I only saw this because it is right outside of Uniqlo’s entrance..
A quick dash-and-grab and RM420 later (clothes for me, mom, dad and sis), we made our way across the street to Pavilion. Now, Pavilion was the newest mall when I left for Penang. Back then, it was intended to be the new high end shopping mall, but I suppose everyone wants to associate themselves with being high class, so everyone flocks to this mall instead. Today, it is just another crowded mall, albeit a very nice one.
I mentioned before that these lavish decorations are basically investments by businesses in the malls to encourage spending. Here’s proof:
It was 5.00PM then, not much time left to muck about anymore, one last photo..
And then it is time to quickly finish my shopping and call it a day..
