 #Makanankita Pop-up Warungs

There is no truer adage to describe Malaysians than the one about being what you eat and as the centrepiece of the Rasa Sayang experience, #makanankita celebrates our food for the way it can unite Malaysians of every stripe. Shoppers and visitors were surely exposed to the wide variety of 60 food here in Quill City Mall KL.

Food curators Priya Prabakaran and Edea Nor scoured the country in search of the best, the most authentic or the most unique food and flavours and brought them together under one roof.

At pop-up warungs with hip designs around the mall, old school hawkers and cooks serve up a dizzying array of Malaysian cuisine including Kelantanese food, Sarawak laksa, halal dim sum, pasembur and a mouthwatering selection of kuih.

And if you have a sweet tooth, you will be pleasantly surprised by the unique desserts with fanciful names you can find here like air jagung heaven, gelato durian D24 and onde-onde cupcakes. 

Interesting redemptions are in-store for all shoppers; every shopper can enjoy a can of Oishi or 100PLUS for FREE with a minimum purchase of RM10 from any vendor at #WarungKita.

#Makanankita Food-themed Contests
Those who fancy themselves masters of the kitchen tested their mettle and won fabulous prizes in a food contest like ‘Cook for Malaysia’.

Speed, skill and ability are the name of the game for ‘Cook for Malaysia’ as contestants in teams of two worked together to beat the clock and the competition in a display of kitchen prowess to win up to RM8,000 in shopping vouchers.

 #Sejarahkita Interactive Exhibitions
Rasa Sayang continues with #sejarahkita, a storytelling project by Niki Cheong that includes videos, photos and texts that, altogether make up our nation’s collective history.

#Sejarahkita is the continuation of five years of Niki’s storytelling projects organised – in collaboration with Kakiseni - in conjunction with Malaysia Day and Hari Kebangsaan Malaysia.

In 2013, Niki’s storytelling team travelled to all 13 states in 15 days, and again in 2015, when a capsule was picked up state by state by a diverse group of Malaysians, who each filled it with soil from their respective states.

This year, his project marked #60tahun since Merdeka by re-presenting the many stories he had amassed over the years while showcasing new ones collected this year in video and photo exhibitions that visitors can be a part of by adding their own experiences.

#Tempatkita Theatre Shows
Your Rasa Sayang experience at Quill City Mall KL wouldn’t be complete without catching one of the many #tempatkita shows including a monologue session by Asia's Next Top Model Alicia Amin, directed by Nour Amir and produced by Shufitri Shukardi as well as a spoken-word, immersive-theatre experience called 'Malaysia Throws Herself a Birthday Party' presented by spoken-word movement Speak City Asia in collaboration with local theatre company, theatrethreesixty.

Repurposing mall shop-lots into pop-up theatres, #tempatkita is a unique experiment that seeks to make space for local indie theatre groups and bring more arts to the masses.

These shows are curated by Shufitri Shukardi from Kakiseni and are proof that art can take place anywhere artists and audiences meet in an exchange of creativity and ideas.

According to Low Ngai Yuen, President of Kakiseni, “Quill City Mall KL has been an amazing partner to work with on an event like this that make a trip to the mall a memorable one. Rasa Sayang give visitors to Quill City Mall KL the chance to have unique experiences where they get taste, hear and watch a little bit of what makes us Malaysian all in one convenient location.”

LEGO Fans Build a Replica of a National Portrait
In conjunction with this year’s National Day, 25 builders from LEGO® User Group of Malaysia (LOM) took time off their busy schedules and got together to build a life-size mural made from 160,000 LEGO® bricks. The mural is a replica of the very famous photograph from 31st August 1957 featuring Tunku Abdul Rahman. This feat will go into The Malaysia Book of Records as the Biggest Mosaic Made Of LEGO® Bricks! From 22nd August until 3rd September, the mural along with other LEGO® inspired creations will be on display at the Orange Concourse of Sunway Pyramid.

Accompanying the largest LEGO® mural in Malaysia are never-seen-before ‘My Own Creations’ (MOC) dioramas of famous Malaysian landmarks and cultural icons. They took a total of 200,000 LEGO® bricks to build.

The landmarks include:
·         Dayabumi Tower
·         A' Famosa Fort

·         Kek Lok Si Temple
·         Christ Church

·         Angkasapuri
·         Ipoh Railway Station
·         The Leaning Tower of Teluk Intan
·         Taiping Lake Gardens
·         BOH Visitor’s Centre - Cameron Highlands
·         ...and more!

The mural took around two weeks of planning and six weeks of building to complete. The dioramas each varied in duration, but most took weeks to finish.


“Celebrating our National Day is every Malaysian’s privilege. The mall recently celebrated our 20th Anniversary and we are continuing its momentum with this engagement with the local chapter of LEGO® User Group” said Loo Hoey Theen, Director of Marketing, Sunway Pyramid.


“We hope shoppers at our mall will take some time out and have a look at the beautiful miniature recreations of our nation’s landmark buildings” she continued.

“To show our love for the country and our hobby of creating LEGO® miniatures, we at the LEGO® User Group of Malaysia decided to partner with Sunway Pyramid this National Day to showcase our creations. We hope that by sharing our passion with the community, it would spark a feeling of patriotism with the shoppers of the mall.” said Ng Wen Yeh, President of LEGO® User Group of Malaysia.
