I was invited by Sunway Putra Mall to attend the launch of their ‘Klasik Raya’ in conjunction with Ramadan and Hari Raya Aidilfitri this year. 
Being a regular shopper at Sunway Putra Mall, I was mesmerized by the décor the moment I stepped into the main concourse area. The ‘Klasik Raya’ theme brings shoppers back to the 60’s where vintage and modish was the rage. Taking centre stage at the main concourse is a magnificent 60’s ‘Panggong’ surrounded by quaint vintage shop houses. 
The launch was officiated by Tan Sri Razman M. Hashim, Deputy Chairman of Sunway Group along with his wife, Puan Sri Latiffah Kamarudin. Also present were, Mr. HC Chan, Chief Executive Officer of Sunway Malls and Theme Parks; Mr. Kevin Tan, Chief Operating Officer of Sunway Malls and Ms. Phang Sau Lian, General Manager of Sunway Putra Mall.
Lights, Camera, Action! Signaling the launch at  the ‘Panggong’, Tan Sri Razman, Puan Sri Latiffah, Mr. HC Chan, and Mr. Kevin clapped their vintage clapper board followed by confetti as to mark the beginning of Raya Klasik at the mall.  
‘Klasik Raya’ theme was inspired by the timeless traditions and cultures of Malaysia’s yesteryears. Mr. HC Chan said “It plays an important and integral role in the community by encouraging communal harmony and integration. It offers not only an excellent platform to reach out to people from all walks of life but provides a space for the community to converge too.” 
The crowd was later entertained with classic pop dance featuring the hit songs back in the 60’s. 
The highlight of the launch was Greyson Chance, an international singer-songwriter was invited to perform his latest single, ‘Afterlife’. Meanwhile, Nik Qistina, a homegrown Malaysia artist also serenaded the crowd with  ‘Pulang Di Hari Raya’. 
In the meantime, Sunway Putra Mall also officiate Food Bank, a corporate social responsonsibilty (CSR) campaign initiated by the mall together with The Touching Lives Club Kuala Lumpur and Selangor. This campaign aims to encourage shoppers to donate non-perishable food items to the underpriviledged as an act to support during this festive season. Donations would be distributed to Pusat Jagaan Lambaian Kasih, Sg.Penchala before Hari Raya Aidilfitri. 
All the 30 childrens from Yayasan Chow Kit (YCK) receieved Raya packets and goodie bags from Tan Sri Razman and his wife. All hampers were sponsored by Friends of Burger and Popular Bookstore. 
We were ushered to Selera Street food hall for an Iftar session thereafter. 
‘Klasik Raya’ runs from now till 10 July 2016, throughout the month of Ramadan and Syawal. 

There will also be screening of P. Ramlee best known classical films from 10.00am to 10.00pm on selected dates, dance performances and festive bazaars.
