With less than three weeks away from Christmas, shopping malls across Malaysia are gearing up for the festive season by adorning the premises with colourful and shiny decorations.

As it is per Malaysian tradition, such festive occasions tend to be celebrated at a large scale, so much so that it totally floored a woman from the US.

Malaysia, how is it possible that you go harder on Christmas than my home country that has 63% of a Christian population, versus Malaysia which is only about 9% (of its) population?!

“And y’all go hard…bro, like Malaysia boleh! Especially the malls, dude!” she exclaimed.

As Lilith continued to stroll inside Suria KLCC, giant Christmas decorations such as a gingerbread house and clock tower could be seen in the background, something which she said she has never seen back in the US.

She also jokingly said that Malaysia “woke up and chose violence against the US” with its Christmas decoration.

Lilith then showed viewers the iconic Christmas tree set up at the mall and claimed that she had never seen one this “freaking tall”.

I mean, just look at this tree! I’ve never seen a tree this freaking tall. Maybe in New York but I don’t know…I’ve never been to New York for Christmas. Walao eh!

Go big or go home

In a short conversation with WeirdKaya, Lilith said she was amazed by the scale Malaysian malls had when it came to decorating for Christmas compared to the US.

“In the US, I’d say it’s more of a personal choice to decorate so usually people would decorate their houses but businesses may or may not go all out. However, the malls don’t go as hard as Malaysia’s.

“They (Malaysian malls) could have put some simple Christmas lights but they chose to put up actual buildings inside of a building,” she added.

Netizens agree

The clip, which has garnered more than 925,000 views so far, saw hundreds of comments from netizens who weren’t too surprised to see the grandeur of the mall’s Christmas decorations.
