Celebrate reunions and gatherings at Carlsberg’s Prosperity Burrow specially curated to bring the best CNY traditions to life.
KUALA LUMPUR, 5 January 2023 – Carlsberg’s highly-anticipated annual Chinese New Year (CNY) celebration themed Brewing Prosperity Together or “合家团圆, 好运连连”, returns to usher in the Year of the Rabbit in style with the Carlsberg Prosperity Burrow after the introduction of its artist edition Carlsberg Danish Pilsner and Carlsberg Smooth Draught cans that bring the greetings of ‘prosperity’ and ‘smoothness’ for the year ahead, nationwide.
Taking great pride in being a part of gatherings and celebrations throughout the year, be it at home or elsewhere, Carlsberg believes that nothing makes a cold Carlsberg taste better than when shared in the spirit of togetherness, creating happy reunions between family and friends.
Similar to the beautiful artwork created by multi award-winning illustrator, Feifei Ruan, Carlsberg brings to life the vibrant CNY Prosperity Burrow spring wonderland that highlights the essence and traditions of the Chinese culture, and delivers all the best elements of CNY in the epicenter of both Kuala Lumpur and Penang. Running from 3 January to 17 January 2023 at Pavilion Bukit Bintang Kuala Lumpur’s Level 3 Connection, visitors can look forward to bountiful treats that stretches from one end of the Connection to the other.
At the heart of the burrow, the celebration comes alive at the central festive area where visitors can enjoy the Zodiac Forecast, to find out what lies in store for each of the 12 zodiac signs in 2023, a Paper Craft station where visitors can snip, fold and create their craftiest CNY artwork, the Prosperity Cam to capture the perfect all round reunion photo with their loved ones and a Drumming Prosperity Together challenge where visitors can win special prizes. Guests will also be treated to the much-loved Lion Dance performance to usher in prosperity and smoothness in 2023.
The stretch also features a beautiful garden installation holding a giant auspicious golden rabbit followed by CarlsBar – a cool Carlsberg pop-up bar, where consumers can try their hand at making their very own signature Carlsberg cocktails guided by a mixologist. The pathway is also adorned with artistic arches carrying the same thematic artwork leading consumers to where the main action takes place.
“As we all celebrate new beginnings in 2023, ‘Brewing Prosperity Together’ represents our hopes and best wishes for all our consumers, partners and friends across the region, so that together, we may have an auspicious 2023 filled with smoothness, prosperity and happiness. Building on that further, we hope to celebrate the bonds with family and friends through our Prosperity Burrow, an interactive space where ‘reunions’ & ‘prosperity’ come to life in a fun yet meaningful way and smoothness blooms with the opening of every Carlsberg beer,” said Stefano Clini, Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia.
A grand reunion dinner was also held for media and business partners at the Grand Imperial, Pavillion to honour CNY traditions. After touring the grounds of Connection and enjoying the CNY activities, guests were treated to Lou Sang, a visually enigmatic LED Lion Dance showcase, a traditional CNY feast and best of all, a performance by DJ Kenji who donned the persona of the God of Prosperity taking over the decks and spinning the night into action.
With celebrations being at the heart of every Carlsberg moment, the CNY Prosperity Burrow aims to inspire an endless flow of smoothness, prosperity and happiness in the year to come as it unites modern and traditional customs of CNY, delivering unique premium experiences to customers from all generations.
For those seeking to have the same experience in the northern part of Malaysia, the Prosperity Burrow celebration will also be in Penang at the main concourse of Sunway Carnival Mall, happening from 5 January to 29 January 2023.
