Jakarta. Shopping malls across Jakarta operated by Lippo Malls Indonesia have prepared a series of special programs to welcome the Muslim holy month of Ramadan.
"Each mall will offer a unique concept and range of activities to cater to the different tastes and characteristics of our visitors. [...] With years of experience in managing the largest number of malls in Indonesia, we are well-versed in what our visitors need from us," Lippo Malls Indonesia Corporate Public Relations Manager Nidia Ichsan said in a statement on Wednesday (24/05).
The malls will take turns to hold midnight sales between June 10 and June 17, when visitors can shop until midnight to earn discounts and rewards.
Lippo Mall Puri, the company's flagship mall in Central Jakarta, adopted "Midsummer Moonlight" as the theme for its Ramadan celebration.
A makeshift Persian Palace adorns the mall's main atrium. Surrounding the palace is a snow arena for kids, which can accommodate up to 60 children per session.
The mall has also prepared many attractions for visitors. A musical drama called "One Thousand and One Nights" will hit the stage from June 24 to June 26. On June 25-26, visitors can also see live performances of Egyptian tanoura and belly dances.
Another Lippo flagship mall in South Jakarta, the Lippo Mall Kemang, will feature Morocco-inspired decorations dominated by gold, purple and blue shades throughout Ramadan. Children can enjoy a pop-up playground with a giant inflatable castle from June 1 to July 9.
Meanwhile, Pejaten Village in South Jakarta will host a number of beauty pageants in Ramadan, including the Hijabi Princess Hunt from June 2 to June 11 and a special pageant for moms with local celebrities as judges.
Plaza Semanggi meanwhile will collaborate with the Jakarta chapter of Indonesian Ulema Council (MUI) to host the Halal Fair 2017 from June 9 to June 18, which will feature a food and fashion bazaar and various contests for visitors.
In East Jakarta, Cibubur Junction will hold a marawis [Islamic percussion] contest on June 3, topped with performances by local bands Noah and D'Masiv on June 18.
