NOSTALGIC CHINATOWN AT AVENUE K, KUALA LUMPUR

No automatic alt text available.

Stepping into Avenue K’S Ground Floor Atrium was like stepping back into my childhood days…back then I would celebrate CNY by following my mom and her friend to Taiping where we would have visit some friends and distant relatives there.. that was when I was a kid…

And that is what Avenue K is trying to evoke… with a quaint little village setting reminiscent of the times back in the 70’s or early 80’s…

Avenue K’s main entrance and atrium is decorated with replicas of old buildings complete with antique adornments and furniture that really bring you back to those heart warming  and nostalgic moments back then.. you can see auspicious red coloured cloth hanging from the lattices, blossoming peonies, pretty cherry blossoms and other floral decorations around here…

Yours truly was over for the media launch and we got treated to some amazing performances… from the Shaolin Wushu Performance…

Then there was the Chinese Traditional Mask Changing Performance done by two lovely girls…. And it is just pretty amazing how fast they change their masks, in seconds…

This was followed by a Chinese Acrobatic Show, ok, this one is a special one from all those years ago, and the performer has been doing his tricks for more than 30 years… and no, he is not one of the acrobats that make you think he is boneless, but more of juggling, balancing and playing with the whip type of acrobat….

  1. The Jalan Gong Xi Fa Cai amused me much. I’d love to drop by Avenue K some time during CNY. Not sure if it is possible but am keeping my fingers crossed.
