How are youuu??
How's raya preparation? hehehe. Me? Great! I'm preparing so much like never before! haha. Embrace yourself, more raya-themed posts are coming up!! hehehe. I'm so much overwhelmed with the raya spirit! Especially after I went to 1 Utama Meriahnya Syawal event few days ago! Have you went to 1 Utama just recently?? If you haven't, you should have! At the LG Oval Concourse, they sure have set up very impressive Raya props! The details are amazing! Hat's off to the decor team! They sure have consider EVERYTHING! Everywhere is pose worthy, I kid you not!
The overview from the above! Looks like raya is really happening! *excited!XD*
They have so many of these star-shaped lights hanging here and there! So pretty! Raya has always been synonym of stars (though I honestly have no idea why it is that), they sure enhance the mood! heee >_<
Okay, so this is what they have in the as the main of the area. It's the traditional kampung house called Penghulu house. Up close? The details are so amazing!
This is totally a rumah kampung!! Looks so real, isn't it? With the bougainvilleas and everything, it reminds me of my kampung!
Another view of the Rumah Penghulu. Can you spot the vespa scooter??
There are few vespa scooters here and there. Can it get any retro?
It can! With these bicycles!! Haven't seen them for ages! I don't think there's anyone who is still using it.
Vintage looking knick-knacks corner
The grassy pathways. They're real grass!
Wait, what?! Oh yes, you read that right. To get the authentic feel, they actually planted real grass!
What else do kampung people do when Raya is around the corner??
Make dodol and lemang!
It's not a familiar view anymore (at least to me it is not) due to time constraint, lack of skill, no space to spare etc etc . My family and I usually just buy the ready made lemang and dodol T_T. Too bad, right?! Just act and pose there pun okay laaaaa. hahaha >_<
It's great if you can take pictures with these mascots too! They 're just too cuteee^^! Baju melayu and baju kurung? Even cuter! hehe
Raya just can't happen without food! I mean, a lot of food! hehe. Therefore, you can look forward to F&B highlights, exciting cooking demonstrations by Malaysian Culinary Masters, as well as buka puasa fare here in 1 Utama.
The LG Oval Concourse is called the Raya makan village where a lot of food and kitchen appliances can be found.
