CNY Decoration 2013 @ Sunway Pyramid



After visiting a few places around the Klang Valley, I reckon Sunway Pyramid by far has come out with the best CNY decoration.

Aptly called "Winds of Fortune", a Chinese junk is currently on display at the main concourse which bring back memories of the bygone era.

The ship measures at 12m long and 5.5m high. It reaches 12m if the height of the masts is included.

 
 
The junk is based on Chinese ships from the Ming dynasty era, in the 1870s. It was a period when ships were the main mode of transportation to ship wine, clothing, herbs and spices to places  such as Straits of Malacca.

 
 
Also incorporated into the decoration is the jetty and gangway which provide a link to the ship.

A tender boat can be seen adjacent to the junk. This smaller boat is normally used to row to the jetty from the bigger vessel.
