Aside from providing us a wonderful shopping experience, it's the seasons mall decoration that always leaves me in awe. Can you believe that it's already July? More than half of the year is gone and Raya is coming! This Raya at Sunway Pyramid, will be themed around #AnyamanRaya with its tranquil tradition lifestyle. The mall will be holding anyaman workshops and giveaways from now until 26th July 2015 (Details are listed below). Besides putting up a gorgeous Raya set up, the mall will also be giving back to society.
Performance during the launch
Yesterday was the launch of "Weaving a Joyous Raya" in Sunway Pyramid. At the launch, celebrities, Fahrin Ahmad, Amber Chia and Deborah Henry along with shoppers of Sunway Pyramid folded ketupats for a good cause. For every ketupat made, the mall will be donating RM 5 to National Cancer Society Malaysia’s Children’s Home of Hope.

This Raya, the inspiration of anyaman surrounds Sunway Pyramid with its delicate yet simple art form, creating a warm, intricate ambiance in anticipation of the upcoming Aidilfitri season. During the event, Sunway Pyramid revealed a heartwarming video "Titipan Sayang, Seribu Kemaafan" from Leo's lil Bakers to their parents. All races were included in the video and all of the kids said their special messages to their parents along with presenting them with a gift that the kids personally made. The video should be found on Sunway Pyramid's Facebook Page this week.
Duit Raya and goodie bags presented to guests
After the video, duit raya and goodie bags were given out to the guests from Kraftangan Malaysia and Masjid Al-Husna at the launch. At the end of the event, everyone gather for a sumptuous buka puasa meal at Tarbush. The food there looked divine but I had to rush off for another event, hence I left without eating.
