Celebrating Chinese New Year in Malioboro with Malioboro Mall

What's the big moment coming this week? Chinese new year is coming soon! 19 February 2015!

In order to celebrate Chinese new year 2566, Malioboro Mall has an event called "Chinese New Year Celebration" which runs for 10 days, 14 to 22 February 2015 at its main atrium. 

As one of marketing & promotion staffs of Malioboro Mall I had to do open the session for lion dance which called Barongsai. For this special occasion I wore red-pink batik combined with a pair of red shoes.

Barongsai performed on 17 February 2015 at 4 PM. There were four lions in bold colors; red, white, yellow, and black. Each of them danced around to seek for Ang Pao (Red Packet) which were hung on the walls or doors of each tenant after dancing and doing some acrobatic maneuvers on stage.

Apart from Barongsai, Malioboro Mall has more to see this week. Wushu performance, oriental dance, percussion, Sam Pek Eng Tay, fashion show, photography competition and many more. All are in a mini Chinatown! You can see the details of all performances here:

You can easily find oriental food such as dim sum, kue keranjang and mochi. Lovely decoration and close-fitting dress cheongsam are there as well. 

The opening hours of Malioboro Mall:
Sunday to Friday: 10 AM - 9.30 PM
Saturday: 10 AM - 10 PM
Phone number (0274) 551888
