Where to Shop for CNY 2017: Sungei Wang Plaza, Kuala Lumpur

It’s less than a month to the Chinese New Year 2017. Have you done your Chinese New Year shopping yet? Well, I’ve been very busy and I haven’t really go for my annual Chinese New Year shopping yet and still sorting out some of my Chinese New Year’s shopping list. There’s plenty of things on my list; new traditional clothes for myself and my boys, new shoes, and of course, a whole list of Chinese New Year’s goodies. Shopping for Chinese New Year can be quite a challenge for me as I like to shop in places that has everything that I want, value for my money and has good eateries that I can chill at after my shopping spree.

While there are plenty of shopping malls in Kuala Lumpur that is great to shop in, I only have a few favourites. One that tops the list is Sungei Wang Plaza. Why? Well, true to their tagline, ‘ For All Kinds of Everything’, Sungei Wang Plaza really does offers all kinds of things in their mall. The best part? Most of their merchants and tenants offers very reasonable price and I can spend hours and hours browsing around while hunting for good deals.
