There seems to be a trend among shopping malls to use bare tree trunks as Christmas decor. 1 Utama painted these in white, strung them up with baubles and place them among poinsettias for contrast. Like previous years, some of the decor have movements. This time, the gazebo above the main pavilion rotates like a musical box. The baubles on top of the stalls also rotate. Strikingly, the familiar conical shaped Christmas trees are not used at all. The lack of these makes the atmosphere less Christmassy.
