Chinese New Year festive spirit high at 1Borneo Hypermall

Spring comes in showers of gold and the feeling of prosperity and wealth in abundance at 1Borneo Hypermall is the theme of the elaborate decorations this Chinese New Year.

Inspired by ancient I-Ching divination coins, the decorations at the centre atrium and at the whole mall features abundant gilded coins reminiscent to the late Ching Dynasty which brings prosperity and wealth, a press release stated.

"A massive 40-ft high, I-Ching gold coin has been created at the centre atrium as the centrepiece and focal point of cultural shows. The outer layer consists of gold mesh with auspicious greeting written in Chinese calligraphy made of satin. This stunning creation is complemented by a triple lighted-perspex coin on the stage surrounded by cherry blossom trees," explained 1Borneo's Public Relations Manager, Chris Ho. Shoppers can literally bask under a windfall of gold coins at the centre atrium and across the mall, he added.

Among the shows set to delight audiences are the Amazing China Acrobatic Show, the Acrobatic Dances of 18 Lions, 24 Seasons Drum Performance, Chinese instrumental music orchestra and the Shanghai Night Costume Competition.

The Amazing China Acrobatic Show is a seven-member troupe from Beijing who will perform a series of stunts such as the porcelain pot juggling, somersaults and gymnastics which will result in mind-baffling body contortions. Also, their 'Tui Chui Diao Hua' act, or the 'spinning multi plate' act, will definitely thrill shoppers. Catch also the world award-winning Yick Nam Lion Dance troupe performance together with the 'Deity of Fortune' spreading good prosperity and well-being around to shoppers.
