We met Po from Kungfu Panda in Sunway Pyramid!

Do you remember Po, the ubiquitous panda bear from Kung Fu Panda? Believe it or not, there will be a third installation of the much loved animation which will be out in the cinemas on 10 March 2016! I sure can't wait to see Po and his friends back in action and I wonder what mischief and adventures that Po will get himself into this time!
However, if you feel like waiting to see Po in March is still a long way to go, fret not as you can catch Po live in action in Sunway Pyramid!
Yup, that's the big guy himself! Sunway Pyramid decided to usher into the lunar new year by transforming its orange concourse area into Po's village!  

 There is a huge lantern hanging above the village which really adds to the festive vibes.

Babypie was in awe with the huge lantern and the amazing 'village' that he couldn't wait to get out of his stroller! Seen here he was holding a monkey plush toy, which is redeemable upon purchase at Sunway Pyramid. As 2016 is the year of the Fire Monkey, the mall will be rewarding shoppers with adorable monkey plush toys.  From the 8 till 21 of January, shoppers who spend more than RM1000 in 3 receipts (RM800 for HSBC cardholders) will be able to redeem the monkey plush toys, while those who shop from 22 January till 9 February will receive a mini Panda blankie. Throughout both duration, shoppers who spend RM250 and above (RM150 for HSBC cardholders) will be rewarded with JoyFU angpau packets.
There are a few activities where kids can take part in. For example, they can colour pictures from the Kung Fu Panda movies and the characters from the movies.
 Babycakes and Babypie had a nice time colouring some pictures with Faber Castell colour pencils.

As for Babypie, he didn't actually colour anything. He was just busy playing with the colour pencils.
There was also a free face painting session but obviously the queue was long so while waiting, Babycakes decided to strike a few poses, in her panda dress.

Finally it was her turn!
There are a lot of designs to choose from. Most kids chose a character from Kungfu Panda but Babycakes decided to choose a flower design on her arm. 
While Mummy and Babycakes were queuing for the face painting session, Daddy and Babypie went over to another booth to create their own panda balloon. All they had to do was cut the ears, eyes, mouth and nose of a panda and stick them onto the white balloons which were readily available. DIY your own panda balloon! This is an awesome idea for a panda-themed party.
Those who love the traditional Beard Candy and Ting-Ting candy or are in need of new oriental outfits will be able to find them easily in the mall. With over 900 shops to wander, the mall is a perfect choice for festive shopping and dining.Be sure to wear comfy shoes!
You can also take pictures with Po when he makes an appearance in his village. We didn't manage to get a picture with Po but I was lucky that Po was very close to me that I managed to take several of his pics. You can also take an instant picture at the village and have the picture printed on the spot. It was a very fun event and I bet your kids will love seeing Po. Do head on over to Sunway Pyramid to catch Po and don't forget to watch Kungfu Panda 3 in the cinemas in March! For more info, log on to Sunway Pyramid's official website. Have a BountiFu Spring and Happy Chinese New Year!
