ADORNED in a silver glow of snow, MyTOWN Shopping Centre celebrates their first Christmas with its visitors, enveloped by a joyous warmth of the season.

Taking the classics of a white Christmas, MyTOWN beautifully melds charming elements of bygone years with contemporary embellishments at its Central Town with its ‘Enchanted Christmas’ theme.

Sitting amid the snow-covered trees and frosted rooftops of eight miniature cottages selling their wares, sits a homey little Christmas cabin that acts as a backdrop, evoking imagery of coal-lit fireplaces and stockings hung over mantelpieces found in old English novels.

Snow footprints on the floors complete the look while moulded silver and gold wires form modern and minimalist trees and ornaments including gold-wire stars and spherical baubles lit from the inside with fairy lights.

Stockings are a symbol of Christmas and the surprise presents Santa Claus leaves in them for those marked as ‘nice’ on his list – but MyTOWN’s list is open to both adults and children.

Practising inclusion in this season of giving, in addition to giving back to their visitors, MyTOWN plans on sharing the joy and love with 70 children from Sunbeams Home Foundation by bringing them to watch the new Star Wars movie at Golden Screen Cinemas followed by a scrumptious dinner at Nando’s.

“We hope that this extensive range of entertainment will provide families an enjoyable break from their holiday shopping,” said MyTOWN Shopping Centre general manager Joakim Hogsander.

“As well as giving others more reason to head down to the endearing shopping centre in Kuala Lumpur.
