Looking to turn around your fortune in the new year, head over to Sunway Putra Mall and spin a pinwheel which is believed would turn around your luck for the better.
As Chinese tradition has it, the pinwheel, known as feng che in Mandarin, is a traditional toy to turn luck around or turn obstacles into opportunities when it begins to spin with the wind.
Sunway Putra Mall and all other Sunway Malls are celebrating the coming Chinese New Year with a unified theme of celebrating traditions. With a recent grand launch of the celebration, Sunway Malls unveils 5 different Lunar New Year attractions at its malls.
Sunway Putra Mall’s Lunar New Year is themed “Wind of Blessings”. The mall has transformed its atrium with a mandarin orange garden adorned with colourful pinwheels, majestic lanterns and a traditional pagoda.
Feast your eyes on the green landscape and a rustic wooden bridge over a man-made pond in the garden. There is a complimentary photo booth for photo opportunities.
