Shopping Complexes In Sibu - Brisk Businesses On Heightened Raya Mood

Premier Departmental Store - Raya sales are on!
Sarawak House Shopping Complex - The Raya mood fills up the air!
Lea Centre - A thrust to gain an edge in this festive sale.
A counter with all the Raya cookies to entice the customers.
Hari Raya Aidilfitri is just two more days away. On the run-up to this blissful festive occasion, the air in Sibu is filled with heightened mood. As such, this weekend was proven to be exciting for Muslims. From shopping complexes to coffee-houses, the businesses were brisk when festive shopping and berbuka puasa eating-out were taking a centre stage.

Sometimes, shopping is very much festive-driven, although it can be an impulsive spending also
. The festivals simply spur an urge on consumers to go shopping spree. This is what the market looks forward to.
Our government just released the bonuses, albeit only the first half, as provided in the budget for 2009 and, as such, this weekend was anticipated to spring up with jostling crowds. These much-awaited perks are just timely for the Muslim civil servants to spring to life for last-minute shopping.
The heightened mood is filling up the whole place and it is somewhat contagious. A lot of non-Muslims feel the festive heat and partake of the Muslims' joy.
When I popped in some popular complexes, I was enlivened by the bustling scenarios. The whole Raya festivity was manifested right in front of me!
Wow! What a lovely Malaysian culture!

Every where is quiet, except the wharves and some shopping complexes. Economy is really bad!

Philip, we are going for worse next year. Ringgit is on sell-down! We should watch out.
