In light of shifting into the endemic phase, this year’s Eid celebration is all the more meaningful Over and above that, the reopening of the country’s national borders makes this festive extra heart-warming!
From the new to old traditional practises like balik kampung, makan bersama-sama with our families and visiting the homes of our neighbours and friends etc. Here are a few things you can do during this lively festive season:
1. A Family Getaway At KL City
Malaysians are blessed with public holidays because of our country’s mixed cultures, which we all office people practically LIVE for it!
Soon, we will be blessed with a long break from the Hari Raya celebration! If you play your cards right, you can stretch the holiday break up to a week or more 😉
The perfect chance to escape yourself from the people and workloads at work and take a breather with a getaway staycation to spend quality time with our beloveds 😌
2. Immerse Yourself in Spectacular Decor
Pavilion REIT Mall is at the top of the line by bringing in the international flavour of Iran and Malaysia’s cross-cultural heritage, which honours the common heritage and Islamic customs that we share.
Pavillion KL proudly showcases Malaysia’s local craftsmanship by partnering with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia, Kraftangan Malaysia, and Dewan Bandaraya Kuala Lumpur (DBKL) at the ‘Eid in Harmony’ Marketplace. 🕌
Along with it, Pavilion KL is also delighted to work with the Embassy of the Islamic Republic of Iran by showcasing their culture through combined festive decorations, handicrafts, performances, craftwork demonstrations and etc! 🎨
