Two in One

Christmas decorations in One Utama. Giant spiders, giant poinsettias, and a red and white crystal balls christmas tree. According to thestar article

[excerpt from the article]
1 Utama Shopping Centre general manager Patrick So revealed that they drew inspiration from a picture that captured a spider spinning its web during winter. “The approach we had was based on an environmental aspect. “Of course, Christmas is all about having family members coming together, but we want to send the message out that we should also be thankful and appreciative of nature’s beauty and its unique creations,” he explained.

Can you see the spider webs?

I like these moss covered rocks because they look like matcha chocolate truffles.

It is fun to walk below these giant poinsettias. It feels like walking in a magic forest.

I was in Damansara Utama recently and when I saw the Texas Chicken eatery, I thought of this post  that mentioned a rojak van nearby that has tasty gravy which is not the same as the peanut gravy for satay so I looked for the van and found it. In the photo above, just look for the blue canopy.

This is the rojak van. The canopy is blue in colour but somehow from this angle, the blue colour cannot be seen and it looked greyish. I did not try the rojak because I was already full and I can't order takeaway because I was going to walk around the new Starling mall so it is not convenient to carry a bag of rojak gravy to go window shopping. Next time then.

This is the name on the van. If you manage to read it, it says "Rojak Utama".

    1. I went inside and their interior looks awesome like the award winning mall Central Embassy in Bangkok!! I think we copied their concept somewhere.
      The shops are still empty & yet to open though all tenanted already and it was so dusty until my wife nearly had asthma attack. LOL

    I like to buy the Texas chicken and sliced them to eat with my ready-salad greens. So yummy and good for dieting!

    1. Truffles yum yum! You are smart to get the meat for your salad greens from Texas chicken. What about the rojak van?
