As the time of year rolls around when we get to swap our everyday kicks for spectacular kurta and sarees, let's dive into the radiant, cherry bomb of a festival that is Deepavali! We're talking glowing diyas, rainbow-coloured rangolis, and tantalisingly aromatic food which rounds up this vibrant Hindu celebration!
In preparation for the joyous festival of Deepavali, among the cherished traditions in many households include the thorough house cleaning and redecoration. This ritual symbolises the removal of negativity and the welcoming of positive energy into the new year! As you sweep and scrub every corner of your homes, you are creating a pristine space and renewing your spirits. To add a special touch, snag some stylish yet functional homeware from Objet at LG1.96, Sunway Pyramid!

Did you know that the word 'Deepavali' itself means 'row of lamps' in Sanskrit? The lighting of lamps during this season represents the triumph of light and goodness over darkness and evil. It is a symbolic way of dispelling ignorance and bringing clarity and enlightenment into one's life. Let the flickering flames of diyas cast a pleasant and inviting glow, illuminating every nook and cranny of your living space!
Whether you're making an offering to Goddess Lakshmi for prosperity, seeking blessings for the year ahead, or just soaking in the brilliantly colourful atmosphere – visiting a temple is an integral part of Deepavali. It serves as a place to reflect, connect and find solace amidst the breathtaking architecture of Hinduism. If you're in Kuala Lumpur, the Sri Mahamariamman Temple is nothing short of a must-visit sensation, adorned for its vibrant deity statues and intricate carvings.
Now what's a festival without mouth-watering, finger-licking, wholesomelicious, "I-can't-believe-I-ate-the-whole-thing" food? There’s no better place for precisely that than Mantra Indian Cuisine at LG2.122, Sunway Pyramid. Known for their Chicken Tikka Masala, Tandoori Chicken and Butter Chicken, not to mention a host of vegetarian offerings, make your pick to pair their delectable curries with aromatic briyani or freshly baked naans – transporting you to the vibrant streets of India. With your loved ones from far and near gathered together over a feast, don’t forget to put your phone away and engage in heartfelt conversations and laughter!
In Hindu tradition, gold is considered auspicious and brings good fortune. Hence, if you’re looking for tokens of love and appreciation for your loved ones this Deepavali, look no further than Poh Kong at LG2.82, Sunway Pyramid! Whether you're looking for a dainty gold locket, a pair of dangly earrings, or a chunky statement bracelet, Poh Kong's exquisite treasure trove mirrors the radiance and brilliance of the festival and will make your eyes pop!

Sugar, spice, and everything nice – that's what Deepavali sweets are made of! Making sweets and desserts are a cherished tradition that brings generations of families together. Whether you're rolling out soft, sticky gulab jamun, shaping the perfect ladoos, or frying up crispy, syrupy jalebis, the kitchen transforms into a place of laughter, bonding, and heavenly aromas as heirloom recipes are recreated amidst a heartwarming setting. Deepavali, in essence, is as much about the sweetness of these homemade delights as it is about the love and warmth we share with our loved ones.
