Prior to the fashion show, YB Danny Law also officiated the opening ceremony of “Penang on 6”, a nostalgic hang out hotspot, concept revamped by Dr. Eric Leong, a bold and stylish celebrity interior designer cum principal of The One Academy. The new “Penang on 6” would match the retro-style atmosphere of the old Penang in the 70’s, with colorful bulbs, huge font signages, ancient handmade collectibles and kopitiam. The shoplots within the premises would also allow ambitious entrepreneurs with lower models to expand their businesses. Starting this coming 19 April 2014, there would be a routine themed Retro Saturdays from 2.00pm until 10.00pm. Visitors can roam freely within this nostalgic chamber to seek interesting stuff such as old collectibles, unique fashion & accessories, handicrafts, workshop stalls and more. Currently, there are two ongoing promotions in Gurney Paragon Mall for the month of April 2014. For all purchases above RM30 in the mall from Monday until Friday, you would get to park your car for free. On top of that, you would also get to redeem cash vouchers or products for certain amount spent in the mall. Coming this May, there are more surprises awaiting shoppers in their Shop & Redeem campaign. I'm thirsty for a drink now. Would you be kind enough to treat me?
