Get ready for a topsy-turvy Christmas this year at Paradigm Mall, Johor Bahru with a record-setting spectacle not to be missed. Grab a mug of hot chocolate and make your way to the mall to witness ‘Biggest Upside Down Christmas Tree’ at 6.8 metres tall and 2.75 metres wide, sure to lift your holiday spirit higher than it has ever been!
Hanging from the ceiling at the Ground Floor Concourse area, this gigantic magical inverted tree is earning the title for ‘Biggest Upside Down Christmas Tree’ in the Malaysia Book of Records. The concourse will also be filled with ornaments shaped after Cartoon Network’s We Bare Bears characters, the hilarious and cute bear brothers who are constantly trying to be part of the human world; Grizzly, Panda and Ice Bear, along with other colourful Christmas arts and crafts, from 13 November onwards.
Ms. Selena Chua, Chief Executive Officer of WCT Malls Management said, “We are extremely excited to showcase the biggest upside down Christmas tree in the country at Paradigm Mall, Johor Bahru this festive season. We have always been passionate about creating unique experiences for our visitors, and believe this record-setting feat will put a smile on faces while encouraging visitors to capture special moments with happy holiday pictures. Children are in for a treat too, as Grizzly, Panda and Ice Bear from We Bare Bears will also be making a special appearance at all WCT Malls this Christmas.”
To celebrate the spirit of giving this Christmas, Paradigm Mall JB will also be hosting over 50 children and their caretakers from Pusat Kebajikan Kalvari Johor. Besides the photo-taking opportunities with the bears, each child will also receive a special goodies bag containing limited-edition We Bare Bears plush toy and also a scrumptious meal from Marrybrown – who is the refreshment sponsor for the event.
“As we usher in the most magical month of the year, we would like to bring joy to the less fortunate children. We are very happy to host, support and share the joy of the festivity with these kids. We sincerely hope that the children and their caretakers enjoyed the fun-filled programmes we have put together for them,” added Chua.
