Entries in Pavilion Kuala Lumpur (10)


Labour Day

After staying low for almost a month, I decided to take my camera out and have a quick meal outside. It was a public holiday and after my ward round I decided to venture out.

I fancied some Arab food. Some kebab. But unfortunately the place were not run by anyone from the Middle East anymore. In fact not a single one of the staff there were Arab. All of them were Bangladeshi. But I assumed that being a Labour Day, the usual workers got their day off!

Any how, the meal was a disaster. Some slices of kebab meat in a pitta bread rolled with some potato fries in them! This lot was really creative!

Leaving the shop unimpressed, I walked around Bukit Bintang quietly, and soon after to started to rain .... Enough for the short outing! Time to get some shelters ...

More Cock

I had a good Sunday starting from the breakfast at PULP. By 10.30 we were already at KL Convention Centre where a home improvement exhibition was going on. Anita got a great deal on a new fridge and she got further discount for the final day of the exhibition. It would be delivered to us before the end of the week.

I then went to the Mac shop to sort out my dongle issue with the new MacBook. And by the time I was done, it was still before noon. Time to take a walk. So, off I went from Suria onto the link bridge to Pavilion. And there, I saw that the decorations for CNY was complete! All the cocks were out! The roosters were flying around indeed!

After that was done, it was time for lunch at back I walked to Suria to join Anita. Disappointingly we were not able to get a frisbee for Idlan to practice - he wanted to try “ultimate frisbee” in school. When we finally reached home, it wasn’t even 3 pm yet. Anita then took to clear the store as more renovations were planned for tomorrow. A team was coming to sort out the wall panelling and cabinets for us .... More knocking.

The boys would be in school tomorrow, and I was still on holiday, I would drive Idlan in. He would enjoy that I would be sure ...

Big Cock Coming

With the Year of the Rooster coming, most of the shopping malls were filled with giant cocks! Well, that didn't come out right I think ....

The builders were really raking them in as it was only a couple of weeks back that we celebrated Xmas, and by the end of the month, it would Chinese New Year. As with tradition, the malls were being decked up during this transition period.

The main foyer at Pavilion was being transformed at the moment with a huge flying rooster being hung right in the middle! It was et to be opened but the decorations by the main entrance was already up.

I had a couple of hours walking around Bukit Bintang this afternoon showing Anita around. I also took the chance to take some photos during the blue hours .....

Christmassy Pavilion

As usually the case, Pavilion always came out with the best decorations, be it Xmas, Chinese New Year, Hari Raya or Deepavali. It looked like their effort this year was not too shabby although the constructions at the main entrance made some of the features looked rather awkward.

The new building right opposite was encroaching into their famous fountain making access from the Bukit Bintang entrance not the smoothest. Add to that the poor traffic flow, heading in and out of the mall was not a joy at all.

There were Xmas trees and crystals aplenty, again with Swarovski being one of their main sponsors. It was both stunning and crowded and being a Sunday, the place was completely packed. On the day I visited, I was forced to park at KLCC, walking across via the linked walkway to Pavilion.

The area around the fountain also had a small train taking children for a ride around a tall Xmas tree erected there for the last few weeks. The main lobby on the other hand had a stage - for Santa of course - and a ride for children.

An enjoyable day out although I wouldn’t recommend going there on a Sunday afternoon. The place was just too crowded, plus the small matter of traffic ....

Pavilion Decorations 

Nothing special seemed to be the operative word. The decorations were functional and not spectacular. There was no coherent theme although the phrase #SyukurSelalu seemed to be cropping up everywhere.

Guess that must have been the theme word. The economy was rather slow lately which explained the lack of exuberance at the place. There was also a recent court case when a lady dropped a yellow balloon - with a message of peace - at an event attended by PM Najib which was dismissed by the Courts. That took place last year at Pavilion.

I uploaded the spherical video and photo here.
