The hard work of the 30 balloonists from Malaysia, Thailand, China, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Singapore definitely paid off when they were announced by the representative of the Malaysian Book of Records (MBR), Huda Zakaria that at a size of 40 X 16 metres, they broke the record for the largest Christmas themed landscape made of balloons ever in Malaysia!

Aside from setting a new record in MBR, this was definitely a happy place to be in during this festive season and definitely worth lining up for. The display will be open to the public until Dec 30.
