Underwater Christmas and the Secret Garden @ 1 Utama
We went for the movie Arthur Christmas at One Utama Shopping Centre. It was an enjoyable movie (3 stars) for the festive season. Last year, One Utama (1U) had the very impressive replica of Christmas Village, with rows of 3 storey tall buildings.
This year, it went for a lower budget underwater theme, with tropical fish and mermaids (my wife told me later that those were ‘lady clams’, oh i see….).
I have never seen Christmas trees decorated with fish. It reminded me of the salted fish hanging for wind-dry or for sales.
The fairies or mermaids have color dresses.
I assumed they were (claim) fairies that could live in the underwater world, or mermaids without tail.
If you are visiting One Utama on weekend, do visit the Secret Garden on Upper Roof (UR level) at new wing.
This could easily be the nicest roof garden in Malaysia that is opened to public for free.
It will be a fantastic get away spot from the busy shopping crowd. If you have time, have a sandwich under the shady trees, and enjoy the breeze on the roof top.
I was surprised to see many fruit trees too, with papaya, passion fruit, banana etc.
There were also plenty of flora and rare species. Next time will be bring a macro lens to snap insects. This photo of the bug was taken with telephoto at 300mm, super-impose with another image using Zoner software to show you its colorful winds.
