Batik Meets Modernity: Lyf Chinatown X LOCCO Artistic Makeover

Chinatown in Kuala Lumpur just got a whole lot more vibrant and cultural! CapitaLand Investment Limited’s super cool lodging unit, The Ascott Limited (Ascott), teamed up with LOCCO, the cultural maestros behind the awesome Keretapi Sarong event since 2017. They’ve now joined forces with Lyf Chinatown Kuala Lumpur by Ascott Malaysia for an incredibly artsy initiative.

Picture this: “Combination of Batik Art through Hotel Interior Decoration.” Yep, that’s the theme, and it’s all about fusing the awesomeness of traditional Malaysian batik art with the modern vibes of Lyf Chinatown Kuala Lumpur. Get ready for a one-of-a-kind experience that’ll make local hotel guests and jet-setting travellers alike go, “Whoa!”

They’ve got some cool cats on board, too – young artists like Indra Gaundi, and hotshot brands like Jafiqa Couture and Nyonya Kain. It’s not just a collaboration; it’s a declaration of love for Malaysia’s diverse culture. LOCCO and Lyf Chinatown Kuala Lumpur are shouting from the cultural rooftops, “Check out Malaysia’s awesomeness, world!”

Even the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts, and Culture (MOTAC), YBhg Dato Roslan Tan Sri Abdul Rahman, thinks it’s a big deal. In his fancy speech, he said, “This collaboration is like mixing tradition with a splash of modernity, creating a hotel interior that’s as colourful as a rainbow. Tourists are gonna love it, seeking that authentic Malaysian cultural experience.”

Shamsul Bahrin Zainuzzaman, the maestro behind LOCCO, spilt the artistic beans, saying, “Batik in Hotel Lyf Chinatown KL is our way of shouting from the rooftops about Malaysia’s cultural awesomeness. This isn’t just decor; it’s a cultural ambassador for Malaysia. It’s like a high-five for the entire Sarong industry in Malaysia. We’re infusing tradition and modernity into hotel vibes, hoping to inspire a whole lot of love for our cultural heritage, both among Malaysians and our international buddies. Art knows no borders, and this collaboration is the living proof.”

Shafarudin Jamaludin, Director of Operation, got poetic about it, saying, “Batik is like a canvas telling Malaysia’s cultural story, and when you mix it with Lyf Chinatown Kuala Lumpur’s modern charm, it’s like a visual symphony. We’re celebrating the unity in our diverse traditions, inviting tourists to appreciate the beauty of Batik, tradition, and culture. It’s like a cultural party, and everyone’s invited – promoting Tourism Malaysia worldwide.”

So, as the holiday season comes knocking, it’s not just about twinkling lights and catchy tunes. It’s a celebration of extraordinary experiences, a commitment to the Muhibbah spirit, and a showcase of Malaysia’s vibrant tapestry of traditions and culture. Chinatown, you just got a whole lot cooler! 🌟🎨🇲🇾
