Ipoh, 20 Jan – The Ipoh Parade’s CNY celebrations extend beyond performances and activities to enchanting visual experiences. The main court on the ground floor of Ipoh Parade has undergone a breathtaking transformation into a garden of plum blossoms. This magnificent display promises to captivate all visitors, welcoming shoppers to immerse themselves in a spectacle of natural beauty.
A sea of pink plum blossoms adorns the main court, inviting all who step in to admire and capture the essence of this awe-inspiring setting. Symbolising courage, hope, and new life, the plum blossom, with its characteristics of cold resistance, embodies the spirit of the season.
Enhancing this picturesque scene are vibrant lanterns hung delicately on the plum blossom trees, creating a magical spectacle. These lanterns, symbolising reunion and celebrations, illuminate the garden with a warm and inviting glow. When brightly lit, the lights shine forth in hope for a brighter and successful year ahead.
At the heart of this enchanting display stands a majestic plum blossom tree, commanding attention as the centrepiece. Complementing this centrepiece are two other branches, each adorned with the same delicate blossoms, embellishing the stage. This visual masterpiece engulfs shoppers in a romantic wave of pink, evoking the sensation of wandering through a fantasy garden.
