A couple of weeks back, I received a call saying that I am one of the consolation prize winner for a Facebook contest that I have participated. I have forgotten about it, disbelief and feeling lucky to know that I have won something! Thanks to generous Berjaya Times Square and they have recently just celebrated their 10th year anniversary on the 29th September. All of their loyal shoppers were invited to come together to celebrate the golden moments of it.
Right before the high red curtains were the stage is hidden, stands a 10 tier tower of cupcakes made and sponsored by Berjaya University College of Hospitality.
Each of their cupcakes are decorated with the names of location themes in Berjaya Times square such as 1st Avenue, Central Park, Tiny Taipei, Grand Musical Stairs as well as Guinnes World Record title holder for the Largest Capsule Vending Machine.
Upon the arrival of the VIPs, there were Ms Koh Huey Min (Executive Director of Berjaya Times Square Kuala Lumpur), Madam Loh (mother of Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Vincent Tan [Chairman & Chief Executive of Berjaya Corporation Berhad]) and Mr Tan Mun Choy (Chairman of Berjaya Times Square Joint Management Body).
The celebration is officiated by the VIPs and our host is no strange humorous emcee, Mr Bernard Liew. As the VIPs officiate, the high red curtain drops revealing the stage.
From the top view (which cannot be seen here), it reveals a Mickey Mouse shaped stage with three projector screens and staircase that is incorporated with the Grand Musical Staircase. Reminiscence the past, Berjaya Times Square was opened since 2003 and I lived nearby, I have witnessed all since they were constructed. It feels nostalgic yet happy and proud that Berjaya Times Square had made this far.
We were greeted with jolly happy and perky clowns. Clowns on stilts were making some balloons and enters to the stage area. At the same time, there are some on unicycle, juggling and another gives us a yo-yo performance.
