Kuala Lumpur, 12 January 2017 – Inspired by the era of the 1920’s, Quill City Mall ushered the Lunar New Year of the Fire Rooster with the theme Grand Shanghai, A Reunion of Timeless Tales.  Grand Shanghai, in its heydays was the place to be, known for the greatest architecture, the best in arts and entertainment.  Shanghai was considered a cosmopolitan city, China’s hub of the East-meets-West cultural exchange, the openness to new and foreign ideas, inventions and cultures.

Grand Shanghai, A Reunion of Timeless Tales was officiated by Dato’ Dr. Jennifer Low, Group Managing Director of Quill Group of Companies and Dato’ Ar. Michael Ong, Group Executive Director of Quill Group of Companies.  In line with its Corporate Social Responsibility initiatives, the mall hosted 60 senior citizens from Rumah Charis and Rumah Victory.  The senior citizens were entertained by the acrobatic lion dance and various Chinese New Year performances and were subsequently treated to a “Lou Sang” followed by a sumptuous luncheon.  

From 9 January – 14 February 2017, shoppers can view the influences of Grand Shanghai set forth within the main court of the mall.  At the Main Court, shoppers are transported into Shanghai of the 1920s to depict the diversified and rich ethos of the era, truly a reunion of timeless tales to look forward to.

Hop on the “Tram to Shanghai” to have a feel of the era’s mode of transport.  Take a stroll along the streets of Shanghai and admire the attractively decorated shops and stalls, shop around for Lunar New Year or simply indulge in the gastronomic delights offered.  Be awed of the displayed antiques used in the 1920’s and admire the brightly lighted lanterns and flourishing blossom trees all over the main court.

With each New Year comes new hope and wishes for the future - wish for your heart’s desire at the wishing trees located at the Main Court. Just get hold of a red ribbon tied to an ancient coin at our Concierge Counter (a minimum donation of RM10 is required, all proceeds will go to Rumah Charis & Rumah Victory). Write your wish on the ribbon, toss it onto one of the big cherry blossom tree as high as you can and get it successfully hung onto one of the branch.  May all that you wish for come true!

The stage at the main court is majestically constructed to replicate the entertainment club back then, where one could get a nostalgic feel of what it’s like to be serenaded by the Jazz and Chinese Instrumental performances of the Golden Era.

Chinese New Year would not be complete without its lively lion dance and percussions!  Be sure to watch out for the Acrobatic Lion Dance and Traditional Lion Dance, the 12 Festive Drums and the Face Mask Changing performances all throughout this festive season.  Our God of Prosperity will be doing his rounds to spread good cheer and fortune to all, don’t forget to take a picture with him, a selfie or two!

Exciting activities have been lined up all throughout this lunar new year which includes calligraphy competition and workshops, fan art workshops and clay figurine workshops to entertain the entire family.
