This year, tHe Spring Shopping Mall invites shoppers to partake in an interactive and immersive festive experience to celebrate Gawai Harvest Festival and Hari Raya Aidilfitri. Themed “Together Gather, Jom Celebrate”, the campaign sees elements of the two festive celebrations that are widely celebrated by the majority of the Sarawakians throughout the concourse of the mall. Shoppers can take a leisurely stroll across the mini lush rice paddie fields and pose for a photo with the 3D centrepiece featuring an Iban Longhouse at the Centre Court. The crowd-pleasing Raya Bazaar has also returned this year with colourful festive displays inspired by picturesque Malay fishing village, offering a plethora of outfits, accessories and Raya treats.
Every weekend, tHe Spring’s Raya Bazaar will play host to exciting events and activities whereby shoppers can look forward to shop for unique handwoven bags and baskets from Penan Women Project or learn how to make their own pair of tassel earrings or have their children enjoy an afternoon of arts and crafts with MY Art Studio and MY Craft Studio.Other highlight of tHe Spring’s Together Gather, Jom Celebrate campaign is the festive redemption program whereby shoppers can redeem tHe Spring’s Limited Edition Green Packets along with exclusive “Buy 2 Free 1” Ramadan Buffet Voucher from Old Court House, The Faceshop Dearpacker Face Mask Duo, Bath and Body Works Fragrance Mist and Guess Lady’s Clutch when they spend RM300 and above in a single receipt, mall-wide.
The month of May also serves as an exciting time for tHe Spring as it became the first mall in Kuching to offer other cashless transaction with Boost. Boost is a leading e-wallet application with over 2.4 million users with online and offline merchants located in over 12,000 touchpoints.

Boost will have special promotions for shoppers to enjoy such as getting up to 50% cashback when they pay with the Boost app at tHe Spring’s Food Bazaar, some of the booths at the tHe Spring’s Raya Bazar and existing Boost partners that are available at the mall such as Tealive, MBO Cinema, Blue Cube, Nando’s, and Universal Traveller.

As part of our commitment to cultivate a new digital lifestyle, we look to encourage a seamless transaction experience for retail shoppers and beyond. In line with building the Sarawak Digital Economy, Boost is the only lifestyle app that you need.
