CITTA Mall Celebrates Chinese New Year Featuring Mural Art Hand-Painted by 90 Children

The children, their caretakers, Leo Club members and sponsors capture a moment by the hand-painted mural

PETALING JAYA, 29 January 2023 – 90 children and their caretakers from Overcomer Care Centre, Salvation Kids Association, Sai Pandian Orphanage Children Home, and Promise Home celebrated the unveiling of their very own 60-foot-long mural during a Chinese New Year event hosted by CITTA Mall.

The mural painting project was led by the Metro Leo Clubs who engaged with the children’s homes (including Victory Home which was unable to attend the event) in January to paint a portion of the mural.

The highlight of the event was surprising the children with the complete mural, featuring caricatures of rabbits (the fourth Chinese zodiac) and multiple shades of auspicious red.

Deemed the “Megazoid” mural, John Tam, General Manager of CITTA Mall noted that, “This celebration is uniquely different from the usual festivities. CITTA Mall is collaboratively demonstrating to the children the power of coming together, through little effort, to create a greater and positive impact. The Megazoid artwork represents more than just a mural, it’s about communicating unity, a sense of ownership and having good fun.”

The Megazoid mural will be displayed until the end of the week, 5 February, on the Third Floor by the GSC Cinema for our shoppers’ viewing pleasure. The children were also treated to a Yee Sang toss, ang pao presentation, a scrumptious lunch by Chilli’s, Wrappe and Happy Lemon, and gifts of Designer Pillows from MajuHome.

“It was wonderful to find our like-minded partners, CITTA Mall and our sponsors, to give these children a chance to celebrate their very own artwork created by their own hands. There is something so joyous in collectively creating a thing of beauty, and I wanted to have as many children as possible experience this through their very own Megazoid artwork,” explained Andrew Teh of Leo Club Sunway Metro, the Organising Chairperson.

“I am extremely appreciative of our CITTA Mall tenants for expressing generosity during this festive season, in partnership with the Metro Leo Club members,” added John Tam, General Manager of CITTA Mall. This event was successfully put together by the Leo Clubs of Sunway Metro, INTI International College Subang Metro, Methodist College KL, SMK Seksyen 4 Bandar Kinrara, and SMK Bandar Utama 3, supported by sponsorship from Chilli’s, Wrappe, Happy Lemon and MajuHome of CITTA Mall.
