RM3m Swarovski crystal X’mas tree for the poor, persecuted people
Public celebration of Christmas is banned in Brunei.
But in Malaysia, “Christmas is all about feeling glitzy and glam” — see the Pavilion KL Facebook entry yesterday about its activities at the high-end mall, including features like the artificial falling snow.
Also Friday is “Feasting time!” for Pavilion’s Christmas shoppers. Amazing how ‘weak’ the purchasing power belonging to the “only 9 percent” of our population.

The “only 9 percent” living under tyranny
Pavilion erected its RM3 million Christmas tree last month – pix below.
The tree is 23 metres tall and made of 174,853 pieces of individual Swarovski crystals. It is co-designed with Miranda Kerr and holds the record as Asia’s tallest indoor Christmas tree.
Christmas carols and jingle bell-tunes have been playing in the many upmarket shopping complexes since November even though the celebration only falls toward the end of December.
Persecuted by the Umno dictator
Needless to say, the Christians are poor and persecuted in Malaysia.
Umno is so “wicked” and Najib Razak’s regime is the evil empire. Umno supporters are all “creatures” crawling on the Dark Side.
Hannah Yeoh “would rather be a doorkeeper at the house of [her] God than to dwell in the tents of wickedness“.
