As the season of giving is upon us, Suria KLCC is transformed into the fabled “Santa’s Workshop” where Santa Claus and his elves are said to craft toys and presents to be given out during Christmas.
Throughout Suria KLCC’s Christmas campaign, the hub of Santa’s amazing toy workshop can be found at the mall’s Centre Court until 25 December 2022. Here, shoppers will be greeted with the sights and sounds befitting a season of joy and merriment. Watch as Santa is assisted by his hard-working elves and mechanical arms in packing presents at the toy-making carousel. A whimsical clock tower also bursts into life every hour, with festive music featuring adorable elves and nutcrackers in synchronised movements.
This is also where Santa goes through his naughty or nice list. Shoppers will be able to submit their names on an interactive screen and find out if they made it into Santa’s naughty or nice list to receive a surprise gift! This surprise gift is limited to the first 100 shoppers per day.
Shoppers are bound to have a wonder-filled Christmas shopping experience at Suria KLCC. A Christmas Card Corner invites shoppers to send the season’s greetings to loved ones with Suria KLCC’s Christmas Cards. Children, on the other hand, will be excited to experience Santa’s Workshop Alive! feature. Here, they can colour their favourite Christmas characters, scan them and watch them come to life on-screen. During the weekends, shoppers can also meet Santa Claus and children will receive a lollipop from him!
Photo opportunities galore with plenty of festive backdrops to capture the mood of the season. Ramlee Mall at Level 1 features a small-scale Santa’s Workshop, while the Ampang and Ramlee Mall entrances feature counters and shelves where the toys and presents are stored. Meanwhile, Santa’s sleigh can be found stationed at the Park Mall entrance, poised to deliver gifts. There is also a Festive Photobooth where shoppers can embody memories with loved ones with complimentary photo print-outs together with e-copies for social media uploads.
The iconic tallest Christmas tree in Malaysia — standing at a whopping 100 feet tall — returns to The Esplanade to greet visitors in all its grandeur. Not only is it brilliantly lit up and adorned with baubles and ornaments, but it also features an abundance of presents on conveyor belts at its base — an extension of the Santa’s Workshop theme. This creates a more Instagrammable moment for visitors.
A Christmas shopping experience would not be complete without shoppers receiving Christmas rewards. Shoppers who spend RM1,500 and above in two receipts at any speciality stores from 25 November to 18 December 2022 will receive an RM100 Suria KLCC (SKLCC) e-Voucher via the Shoppers’ Rewards Programme. Meanwhile, those who spend RM3,000 and above in two receipts at any speciality store will receive a Pandora bracelet set worth RM600.
“At the end of the day, Christmas is so much more than amazing décor and stunning displays — it’s about getting together with loved ones. After making it through the last few turbulent years, we have much to celebrate and be happy for,” said Andrew Brien, CEO of Suria KLCC.
In an ongoing initiative of the Mental Health Awareness programme, Suria KLCC has pledged to support the Green Ribbon Group through monetary sales of the Suria Ribbon Pin. The ribbon pin can be purchased from the Concierge at RM10 per pin.
A TREASURE TROVE OF TOYS AT ALAMANDA PUTRAJAYA
Also happening from 25 November to 25 December 2022, Alamanda Shopping Centre’s Christmas campaign is set to have its very own Santa’s Workshop. The setup in the centre court features bountiful toys on a mechanical conveyor belt — a sight that will surely put smiles on the faces of adults and children alike.
Christmas performances and activities are also organised to enhance the shopping experience. Shoppers will be able to watch magic shows, Christmas dances and Christmas acrobatics at the centre court.

CELEBRATING A WHITE CHRISTMAS AT MESRA MALL
The Christmas campaign at Mesra Mall in Terengganu will be held from 1 December to 25 December 2022. Christmas is a celebration often associated with snow, hence Mesra Mall will be ushering in the festive season decked to the theme of “White Christmas”.
The Christmas redemption programme at Mesra Mall is sure to make Christmas shopping a rewarding experience for all. Shoppers who spend RM350 and above in two receipts at any speciality store are entitled to redeem an exclusive glass storage jar.
