Who’s up for some festive shopping, magnificent décor, and cultural delights? During festive seasons, Malaysians regularly visit retail malls to marvel at the elaborate decorations, take Instagram-worthy photos, and enjoy the celebrations. And this year is no different.
In preparation for the upcoming Syawal and Aidilfitri celebrations, 1 Utama Shopping Centre is welcoming shoppers to indulge in the rich heritage of traditional Minangkabau houses and culture, with entertaining performances throughout its ‘Setulus Pertemuan, Semurni Ikatan’ Raya celebrations from 8 April to 8 May 2022.
A 41-foot-high Rumah Gadang (communal big house) with its prominent signature upswept curved roof reminiscent of buffalo horns, intricate floral carvings, and vibrant painted designs has been recreated at 1 Utama’s Oval concourse, flanked by swaying palm trees, in a nostalgic kampung-like setting, taking inspiration from ethnic Minangkabau tribes in Negeri Sembilan and West Sumatra.
Step inside the richly ornamented wooden house on stilts, carved from wood with a bamboo roof interior, for a full interactive Insta-worthy experience that will undoubtedly catch everyone’s attention. Explore the Serambi porch for scenic views, Rumah Ibu‘s inner vintage bedroom, a dapur with kitchen equipment, and even traditional wedding attire and musical instruments on display at the Pangkal.
Don’t forget to take selfies in front of the old-fashioned barn and the lesung kaki rice-pounding instrument. Friends and family will be able to sit inside a life-size kereta lambai (bullock cart) on the Centre Court concourse to take more photos.
A variety of stage shows, music, and dances, including gamelan, tarian endang, silat, dikir barat, tarian lilin, cak lempong, and tarian rakyat padi, will enliven the festive mood and lend a true-to-life traditional Raya ambience at 1 Utama to showcase the beauty of Negeri Sembilan’s performing arts and traditions.
Keep an eye out for the following fascinating performances at 1 Utama’s Lower Ground Oval and Ground Floor Centre Court (CC) concourses:
