Saying it with flowers

The Sunway malls are in full bloom dressed in the Bunga-Bunga Raya theme for this Ramadan and the upcoming Aidilfitri festivities

16 May 2019 / 10:42 H.

SUNWAY MALLS recently launched its Bunga-Bunga Raya campaign for this Ramadan and in anticipation of the coming Aidilfitri festivities at Sunway Putra Mall in Kuala Lumpur.

The six Sunway malls have united in a floral-inspired theme with each mall decked out in one of six species of flowers in Malaysia, with each carrying a symbolic meaning – the hibiscus (for togetherness), bougainvillaea (celebration), orchid (forgiveness), geranium (hope), morning glory (new beginnings) and jasmine (purity).

At the launch of the campaign, Sunway Malls and Theme Parks CEO H.C. Chan said the different species of flowers in its Bunga-Bunga Raya theme across its malls symbolise the different people of Malaysia coming together to celebrate a festive season – which has always been a Sunway Malls’ hallmark.

Also present at the launch were Sunway Group deputy chairman Tan Sri Datuk Razman Hashim, Sunway Malls COO Kevin Tan, Sunway Velocity Mall senior general manager K.S Wong, Sunway Putra Mall general manager Phang Sau Lian, Sunway Carnival Mall general manager Chai Wen Yew, Sunway Giza assistant general manager Albert Cheok, and Sunway Citrine Hub assistant general manager Allan Tay.

Check out these flowers at the respective Sunway malls.
