Bandar Utama, also better known as 1 Utama Shopping Centre recently officially launched their main event for Christmas this year that is the Rustic Woodland Christmas.
As you all noticed the decorations that were set up during the last week on November at the New Wing concourse area slowly became a woodland area filled with lots of cut animal cut outs and trees.
This event was made official by the director of 1 Utama Shopping Centre, Tan Sri Dato' Ir Teo Chiang Kok with his speech that surprisingly includes 'selfies' and 'welfies'. Very up to date punya Dato lol *cheers*
MC for the day was beautiful celebrity Vanessa Chong, she has a body that puts girls like me to shame lol.
Opening performance itself reminds me very much of 'Narnia: The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe' movie, where there are fairies, elves, a prince and even santa! Think that's where they have gotten their inspiration for this year's Christmas theme :D
I wouldn't go into detail on why there is a lion categorized under woodland creatures la lol, because usually when we mention woodland animals such as deer, rabbits, birds, bears, squirrels and other small critters XD
But it's still an animal so i guess it counts?
Bandar Utama really went all out this year by having so many fun activities and also never did i expect this year to have so many mind blowing musical performances which you guys can catch them for free at their performing slots.

I really enjoy musicals and especially getting to see our country taking the effort and time to train these young talents to showcase their performances in public (plus clad in cute costumes) is really refreshing than the usual.
